What is ethnic rhinoplasty?

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 plastic surgeons, like Dr. Christopher Khorsandi in Las Vegas, NV have mastered the skill and techniques 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.

Ethnic rhinoplasty in Las Vegas, NV at VIP Plastic Surgery helps you achieve the improved aesthetic you want with several great benefits, including:

  • Addresses bumps, crookedness, and other irregularities
  • Maintains your unique ethnic traits
  • Increases or decreases nose size
  • Reduces the nose tip
  • Reshapes the nostrils
  • Enhances and balances facial harmony
  • Improves breathing
  • Boosts confidence and self-image

What are the 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 board-certified plastic surgeon that understands the patient’s requests, and will create beautifully balanced, aesthetic results without compromising their ethnicity.

I saw Dr. Khorsandi on Nov.6, 2020 he did an amazing job I had a dip in my nose bridge and he corrected it for me I'm very happy with my results. He was super nice and took me back in a reasonable amount of time. I'll be going back to him for all my cosmetic procedures

African American/ Ethnic Rhinoplasty - Dr. Khorsandi is awesome. He has a wonderful bedside manner. I felt very confident & comfortable with my choice. I knew that his number 1 priority was safety. He takes time to answer questions, and let you know what is and isn't possible. Updated on 12 Nov 2018: So I'll start from the beginning. Dr. Khorsandi's office is very good about answering the phones. I called and scheduled my appointment and that was pretty seamless. The day of my consultation was 5 months prior to surgery. I'm not going to lie, the wait at the office will leave you a bit frustrated, but it also is a sign of the popularity and the results that Dr. K delivers. Also for any other ethnic patients, just want to say mostly white people leave reviews but when you got into the office and see the patients, it's quite diverse. I saw Dr. Khorsandi and he used one of those photo morphing machines, and went over what he felt would be appropriate. I had a flat wide bell pepper nose. My nostrils were large, my bridge was flat and had a pretty typical African American nose. He decided to do bring in my nose, build up the bridge. I set a surgery date, and paid my deposit. It was smooth, and Dr. K puts you at ease he's very nice, and has such a great bedside manner. I felt like I had made the right choice. P.s. not going to post pics in this review, but you can reach out to me via inbox if you'd like to see some before and afters. Updated on 12 Nov 2018: On the day of surgery I was scared [RS bleep]-less. Real talk I was freaking out thinking I'm about to let someone cut my nose and peel it back like an onion. To make matters worse while I was getting prepped only the Anesthesiologist was there at that point, and being frank he's an [RS bleep]. Like a gigantic one (sorry Dr. K but he is) I did however tell him that his way of being would keep me alive so I could live with it. Once Dr. Khorsandi got there I immediately felt at ease. The wheeled me back got to cutting, next thing I know I'm waking up with a cast, and the tip of my nose looking pointy like Cindy Lou Who lol. He did use a rib graft, and that part didn't become sore and tender till days later. The surgery took about 3 hours and that was that went back to the hotel to rest. The next day I went in he cleaned my incisions and nose with peroxide. I came back a week later to have my cast, stitches, and stents out. Man that was butthole puckering pain, and probably the suckiest part of the experience. It hurts no two ways about it. but I got to blow my nose and it felt so good. My nose was huge and swollen and I looked freaking crazy ahahah. Updated on 12 Nov 2018: Those first crazy days of swelling have healed and my nose looks fantastic, no one even knows I had it done, they I have one tiny scar on my left nostril kind of on the inside. You can't see it though. I can only see it with a magnifying mirror, however I honestly expect for the color to comeback there. It's only been about 6 weeks. This makes my face overall more attractive and I can't be grateful to Dr. Khorsandi enough for being the doctor to help me with an issue that I have been self conscious about my whole life. Some people may gripe at the price, but to me it's worth it to have someone with his experience working on me. My nose looks so good, and I feel so pretty. Thank you again to Dr. K and his staff!!! I'll be going back in Feb, for botox and fillers lol

Best Decision of my Life - I had a rhinoplasty and liposuction on my chin/neck area by Doctor Khorsandi exactly one year ago in July of 2020. I have hated my nose and side profile my ENTIRE life. I would never take pictures of myself looking to the side because I was so embarrassed of it. I finally decided that I needed to do something about it so I came to real self to look at doctors and read reviews. When I came across Doctor Khorsandi I was so impressed with the reviews and before and after photos I booked a consultation. The whole process was so easy and everyone was so nice! Doctor Khorsandi created an image of my nose and how it would turn out and I loved it but the day before my surgery there was something I wanted to change. I was hesitant to call and ask if this was something that I could do because I did not want them to be annoyed that I waited until the last minute, but I did and they were SO understanding. They got me right in and Doctor Khorsandi tweaked the image perfectly and with no complaints that I had been annoying and wanted a change lol. I truly can’t fully express in this review how happy I am with how everything turned out. I get so many compliments on my nose…literally just last night at the bar I was approached by a guy who said “I know this is a really random thing to compliment but you have a beautiful nose” and that was not the first time someone randomly approached me and said that since having my surgery. It’s the best feeling ever!!! Thanks so much to Dr Khorsandi! If you are thinking about getting this done, do not wait any longer!!

African American Rhinoplasty?

The typical shape of an African American nose includes an increased width, definition loss, and lack of projection. Most board-certified plastic 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 board-certified plastic 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.

Will I Look Different?

Yes, ethnic rhinoplasty will alter a patient’s facial appearance. However, a vastly experienced board-certified plastic 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.

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. Virtual consultations are $100 and in-person consults $300 the consult fee goes towards the procedure they are non-refundable.
