4 Common Misconceptions About Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty

Middle Eastern rhinoplasty is a type of ethnic rhinoplasty performed on patients with a Middle Eastern heritage. These patients often complain about a significant nasal hump, a long downward tip, or a bulbous tip. Middle Eastern rhinoplasty can be very effective at removing these and other aesthetic concerns while maintaining a patient’s ethnic appearance. If you’re thinking about rhinoplasty and come from a non-Caucasian background, keep reading for important tips and advice.

As an expert in Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty, Dr. Sajjadian has heard his share of myths and untruths about this cosmetic procedure. Today, let’s clear some of these myths up so you can know the truth about Middle Eastern rhinoplasty.

Myth #1- Any Rhinoplasty Surgeon Can Perform Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty

If you’re thinking about Middle Eastern rhinoplasty, make sure you choose an experienced surgeon. The ideal surgeon will have specific experience performing rhinoplasties on Middle Eastern patients. These patients can have very specific and unique nasal structures and concerns. Rhinoplasty is a complex procedure, and this is even more so the case with ethnic rhinoplasty.  Don’t trust your nose to just any surgeon.

Myth #2- You’ll Look Unnatural After Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty

Many patients worry that they’ll lose their unique, cultural look after a rhinoplasty. This won’t happen with Dr. Sajjadian. He focuses on balancing your nose with your other features to create a look that complements your heritage and facial structure. His goal isn’t a one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter nose but, rather, a unique, natural looking nose without those problem areas. He wants you to have a nose that looks like you were born with it, even if you weren’t.

Myth #3- Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty Is Only Cosmetic; It Doesn’t Correct Breathing Difficulties

Although Middle Eastern rhinoplasty can be performed solely for cosmetic reasons, many patients opt for the procedure due to breathing concerns. Dr. Sajjadian can combine an aesthetic rhinoplasty with nasal obstruction correction. Cosmetic, functional, or a bit of both, rhinoplasty can correct your nasal problems. Septoplasty and turbinate reduction are common procedures that are done at the same time as middle eastern rhinoplasty.

Myth #4- A Bad Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty Isn’t Correctable

The best way to avoid a bad rhinoplasty is to choose a highly skilled and experienced surgeon the first time around, but for those of you who are already suffering from the after-effects of a botched rhinoplasty, know that help is available. Dr. Sajjadian has successfully corrected many failed rhinoplasties, and can help you achieve the nose of your dreams.
