Ethnic Rhinoplasty is the process of reshaping the noses of different ethnicities, which genetically have different and unique nasal formations. The main goal in ethnic rhinoplasty is to make sure that the new nose goes well with the remaining facial features which shows patients’ ethnic descent.
Frequently referring to people of Asian, Middle Eastern, African and Hispanic origins, the key is to get rid of nasal humps, straighten the nose or anything else the patient desires without getting rid of the ethnicity of the nose as well.
Each individual race has its own characteristics of the nose. Ethnic rhinoplasty takes those attributes into account and leaves the patient with a nose they enjoy seeing in the mirror, but still gives off the distinct ethnic background. While people of African descent usually have wider, flatter noses with bigger nasal passages, Hispanic people will tend to have more angled noses .
Just like all rhinoplasty there are numerous different procedures that can be done with ethnic rhinoplasty. The main goal is just not to have the European ideal nose but to have the ideal nose for that specific genetic and cultural make up. Patients may choose to have their bumps removed or reduced on the nose or have them nostril flare reduced. Some features are more common to each ethnicity such as the nostril flare for African people, so the key is to reduce that enough without taking away the direct ethnicity. Changing the tip and realigning the angles of the nose are also common procedures.
The benefits of ethnic rhinoplasty are that any race or genetically different culture can have nasal plastic surgery without the worry of losing their individual identity. Ethnic rhinoplasty features individualized nose jobs for each specific racial demographic, allowing the unique facial features to stand out, without allowing the existing nasal deformities to stay. The optimal result is one of preserving racial traits, but without all the other features of the nose that patients are unhappy with.
