Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty Different for Each Ethnicity?

Are you dreaming of a different nose? Rhinoplasty could be the solution, but if you come from a non-Caucasian background, choose your surgeon carefully. Ethnic noses tend to have unique nasal features and require a skilled rhinoplasty surgeon. Call today and schedule your consultation with the best rhinoplasty surgeon in Newport Beach, Dr. Sajjadian.

What Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

Ethnic rhinoplasty is a type of rhinoplasty performed on patients with a genetic heritage that contains non-Caucasian ethnicities. A good ethnic rhinoplasty surgeon is skilled in performing many advanced rhinoplasty techniques including cartilage grafting, tip refinement, hump removal, nasal implants, etc. Choosing an ethnic rhinoplasty surgeon, like triple board-certified Dr. Sajjadian, helps to alleviate complications with this complex type of rhinoplasty. Our goal is to reshape and refine your nose, while maintaining and enhancing your unique cultural appearance.

What Are Common Nasal Features for Each Ethnicity?

Noses can vary greatly, even within the same ethnicity. A patient with a Middle Eastern nose will likely have a dramatically different nasal anatomy than a patient with an African nose. Your features may vary, but the following characteristics are commonly found on patients from these non-Caucasian ethnicities.

  • African Nasal Features– Large nostrils, bulbous tip, flat or low bridge
  • Middle Eastern Nasal Features– Droopy tip, pronounced nasal bump, thick/oily skin
  • Asian Nasal Features– Small nasal bones, flat or undefined nasal appearance.
  • Hispanic Nasal Features– Thick/oily skin, wide nostrils, bulbous tip.

The best way to determine what unique nasal features you possess is to schedule a consultation with a board certified rhinoplasty surgeon. Dr. Sajjadian is one of the area’s best rhinoplasty surgeons and is a respected rhinoplasty educator in addition to his work as a triple board-certified plastic surgeon.

Will My Ethnicity Impact My Rhinoplasty Results?

There is no one perfect nose. Dr. Sajjadian’s goal with each rhinoplasty surgery is to create a nose that balances well with the face. Your ethnicity and unique nasal structure will definitely impact your results, but this isn’t a negative. A nose that complements the other facial features can bring the face into harmony, improving your entire appearance. Look like you were born with your new nose, even though you weren’t. We strive for natural looking ethnic rhinoplasty results and custom tailor your procedure to you.
