56 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Even though our society has a variety of cultures and ethnicities, there are many men and women who desire different facial features and contours. Ethnic rhinoplasty is one of the most common procedures these patients undergo to change their facial appearance. Board-certified cosmetic surgeons, like Dr. Christopher Khorsandi in Las Vegas, NV, have mastered the skill and technique needed to achieve the patient’s desired results while maintaining their ethnic variations. During ethnic rhinoplasty, Dr. Khorsandi will reshape the structure of the nose without affecting its natural airflow.

Anatomical Differences

One of the most significant differences among different ethnicities is the nose. The structures of the nose are different between Caucasians, Hispanics, African Americans, Middle Easterners and Asians. It’s important for patients to find a cosmetic surgeon that understands the patient’s cultural differences and will create beautifully balanced, aesthetic results without compromising their ethnicity.

African American Rhinoplasty?

The typical shape of an African American nose includes an increased width, definition loss, and lack of projection. Most cosmetic surgeons are asked to build dorsal height, define the nasal tip through thick skin and create a more symmetrical appearance. However, these requests are challenging to achieve because of an African American’s anatomy and heterogeneity.

Hispanic Rhinoplasty?

Cosmetic surgeons have mastered surgical techniques for Hispanic rhinoplasty. Most patients seek a narrowing or augmenting of the nasal dorsum, nasal tip definition, nasal rotation and an increase in projection. A highly skilled cosmetic surgeon knows how to achieve the patient’s desired results while maintaining Hispanics’ multiethnic origin and migration patterns.

Selecting the Right Surgeon

It’s crucial for patients to choose an ethnic rhinoplasty specialist with the skill and experience to perform a complex procedure. The ideal surgeon should have a full understanding of ethnic and cultural differences in the anatomy of the nose. Higher levels of practice increase the chances of better surgical results.

During/After Surgery

As a complex procedure, ethnic rhinoplasty is a 1-to-2-hour, outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. Patients will need to wear a nose splint during the recovery process to help control bruising and swelling around the eyes and nose. Patients can expect final results a full year after surgery.

Expected Cost

Because ethnic rhinoplasty is a specialized procedure, the cost of the surgery depends on its complexity. Most patients can expect to pay between $5,000 and $10,000; however, a better estimate can be provided after a consultation exam with the surgeon. Surgical techniques, such as bone restructuring, grafting and cartilage reconstruction, can increase the cost of the procedure.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty FAQs

Will I Look Different?

Yes, ethnic rhinoplasty will alter a patient’s facial appearance. However, a vastly experienced cosmetic surgeon uses surgical techniques to create a natural appearance that maintains the patient’s cultural and ethnic features that make them happy.

Break My Nose?

Even though breaking the nose is a common technique, it is not required. For some patients, a fracture allows the surgeon to perform certain functions and techniques that may not be accessible without a fracture.

Nasal Packing?

Surgeons use nasal packing to help control bleeding. Complex surgeries, like ethnic rhinoplasty, may cause more bleeding than normal.
