Am I a Good Candidate for Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Ethnic rhinoplasty can improve your appearance while still preserving the facial features and characteristics that make you unique. If you are interested in nose reshaping, it's best to meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine your candidacy. Dr. Christopher Khorsandi can discuss your eligibility during a rhinoplasty assessment in Las Vegas, NV.

Many patients seek out the team at VIP Plastic Surgery because Dr. Khorsandi knows how to create beautiful and balanced results without compromising your heritage. Call to learn more about ethnic rhinoplasty and how we can help you achieve your goals.

Why should I get an ethnic rhinoplasty?

There are many differences between Caucasian noses and those of other ethnicities. Hispanics, African Americans, Middle Easterners, and Asians all have features that define their noses and make them more distinct. A surgeon who specializes in ethnic rhinoplasty understands these differences and can create results that look natural for your heritage and background.

Many people are unhappy with their noses because they do not conform to the stereotypical ideal of beauty. This may be due to a crooked nose, large dorsal hump, a wide nasal base, asymmetry, or other issues. Ethnic rhinoplasty can help you achieve a more natural appearance that still preserves your unique features.

Am I a candidate for ethnic rhinoplasty?

Not everyone is a candidate for cosmetic surgery. Dr. Khorsandi can perform a health assessment to determine if you are eligible for nose reshaping. We also examine your features and ask about your goals for ethnic rhinoplasty. Inform our team about any serious medical conditions or if you take medications that affect your ability to go under the knife.

Patients should always have realistic expectations about their results. Ethnic rhinoplasty is designed to make subtle and natural-looking changes that enhance the appearance of your nose, not change it completely. We have helped many patients address mild to severe cases of a crooked nose, large dorsal hump, and asymmetry, among other problems. Our team can show you before and after photos and review what is possible during your consultation.

How can candidates prepare for recovery?

Candidates for ethnic rhinoplasty should be willing to follow any post-operative instructions as given by Dr. Khorsandi in Las Vegas, NV. These guidelines may include wearing a special splint and avoiding blowing your nose for several weeks. Swelling and bruising are normal side effects after surgery, but we can provide medications to resolve any discomfort.

VIP Plastic Surgery will also make recommendations for how long you should take off of work or school after nose reshaping. Most patients require at least a week before resuming normal activities. This timeline depends on the individual and the extent of the surgery, but we want to ensure you are fully recovered before returning to your routines.
