The Different Types of Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Do you come from a non-Caucasian ethnicity? If you do, rhinoplasty can be a little more complicated. This doesn’t mean you can’t achieve stunning results, but choose your surgeon carefully. A surgeon with experience performing ethnic rhinoplasty can help you get the best results. Learn a little more about the many types of ethnic rhinoplasty.

Hispanic Rhinoplasty

Hispanic rhinoplasty is a type of ethnic rhinoplasty performed on patients from Spanish or Latin American countries. Patients from this part of the world often have thicker, oily skin, limiting the potential for refinement. Nostrils are often wider and can be difficult to reshape. Hispanic patients commonly have a nasal hump. The key to a successful Hispanic rhinoplasty is to bring the nose into balance with the other facial features. Dr. Sajjadian always strives to create a nose that maintains a unique, Hispanic look while improving upon its aesthetic appearance.

Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty

If your genetic heritage comes from countries like Turkey, Iran, Israel, or Yemen, you may be in need of Middle Eastern rhinoplasty, a type of ethnic rhinoplasty performed on patients from the Middle East. These patients may have a droopy tip or a pronounced nasal bump. Skin is often thicker than with Caucasian patients. Dr. Sajjadian uses advanced rhinoplasty techniques to shape and redefine Middle Eastern noses.

Asian Rhinoplasty

Asian patients often have small, undefined noses. Rather than removing nasal tissue, like in many other types of rhinoplasty, Asian rhinoplasties often require the addition of tissue. Dr. Sajjadian uses nasal implants and cartilage grafting to build up nasal structure as needed. This type of ethnic rhinoplasty can be very complex, make sure you choose a skilled surgeon.

African Rhinoplasty

Patients with ethnic origins in Africa should opt for African rhinoplasty. We commonly see African patients with large nostrils, a bulbous tip, and/or a flat nasal bridge. Dr. Sajjadian works to refine the nasal structure while ensuring that the nose remains balanced with the other facial features. Tip refinements can be especially complex, but Dr. Sajjadian has extensive experience performing all aspects of ethnic rhinoplasty.

Persian Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is very common in Iran and in Iranian patients here in the U.S. Persian or Iranian rhinoplasty is a type of ethnic rhinoplasty. Many Persian patients have thick skin and large noses. Nasal humps are very common. Dr. Sajjadian is a top ethnic rhinoplasty surgeon in Orange County, and he has worked with many Persian patients.
