Maintain Your Unique Features with Ethnic Rhinoplasty

ethnic_rhinoplasty_stock_3

In the past, plastic surgeons who specialized in nose reconstruction and correction surgeries could provide patients with only a limited variety of nose types. Also, the techniques used focused primarily on Caucasian noses that were pointed and had a pronounced sloping appearance.

Due to the limited techniques available, many patients who were in other ethnic groups didn’t find rhinoplasty appealing because the corrections often failed to address their unique needs and did not represent their unique characteristics. It was like broad painting everything with the same brush!

Ethnic rhinoplasty is a specialized technique in the field of plastic surgery where an ethnic patient obtains a corrected nose that fits in with the rest of their facial features. The main purpose is to create a perfect balance between all of your hereditary features without suppressing anything that will make you stray too far from your natural look.

How Does It Work?

A nose gets its shape from the unique interactions between skin, cartilage and bones. Every nose is unique because the structure and the manner in which these three elements interact with each other vary significantly from one individual to another.

An ethnic rhinoplasty is the perfect solution if you want to remove a hump, modify the cartilage, change the shape of your your nose, or reshape the skin around your nose.

Different Types of Nose Corrections Based On Ethnicity

Asian Nose Job

An Asian rhinoplasty is a great option for patients from an Asian lineage. While diversity among different ethnic groups in Asia requires customized solutions for every individual, a consultation with your surgeon will allow her to analyze your unique needs and shape a nose that is proportional to your facial appearance.

Noses come in many shapes and sizes. Some people may have flatter nose tips and bridges, while others may have a round tip, a prominent hump, and wider bridges. To increase the height and reduce the width of a nose that is flat, your surgeon will use a technique known as tissue grafting or implant a silicone structure.

African American Nose Job

African American noses can also vary depending on the ancestral lineage. However, some of the common traits are a high and wide bridge, a hump, a bulbous and flat tip with a thin skin tissue covering, short nasal bones and wide nostrils.

Although the focus remains on aesthetic improvement, the surgery often improves functionality of the nose and eases breathing as obstructions may be removed during the process.

Hispanic Nose Job

Hispanic noses may sometimes appear small in proportion to other facial features. They may have stout and flat bridges, a hump, wider nostrils, and a wider base. The procedure usually requires the surgeon to chisel out some soft tissue and cartilage formations without reducing the function of the nose or make breathing more difficult.

Middle Eastern Nose Job

Middle Eastern noses may feature a downward slope, a drooping tip, and also a hump. Demands could vary depending on the needs of the patient. However, like all other plastic surgeries, the patient should have a realistic image and goal in mind.
