Your ethnicity is a crucial part of who you are, your lineage, history and appearance. You may want to alter or modify your nose’s appearance or facial features without changing the core aspects of your ethnic identity. Unfortunately, too many cosmetic surgeons opt for a cookie-cutter approach to rhinoplasty, modifying your nose according to “western” ideals of beauty, effectively erasing your unique identity.
What is ethnic rhinoplasty?
All racial backgrounds and identities have unique physical and aesthetic traits, be it the shape of the nose, lips, eyes, or the skin’s texture and thickness. All nose jobs and rhinoplasties should respect those ethnic markers of identity. This challenging task requires immense skill, dexterity, experience, knowledge, artistry and sensitivity.
Ethnic rhinoplasty is a subset of nose surgery performed on non-caucasian individuals. Traditional rhinoplasties aim to reshape the patient’s nose, modifying its shape, size or general appearance to ensure overall balance and facial symmetry.
Ethnic rhinoplasties have that same goal, but they also consider your ethnic background and distinct facial features, modifying your nose for overall balance and harmony without erasing physical signs of your ethnic background.
