SURGERY

Ethnic
Rhinoplasty

The term “Ethnic rhinoplasty” refers to the idea that certain noses have specific elements that identify a person’s background, and any elimination of such features could create a nose that does not fit with the rest of one’s face. A common misconception is that the goal is to make the nose look “less” ethnic; this is not the case. As with all rhinoplasty surgery, the goal of an “ethnically conscious” rhinoplasty is simply to achieve the most organic, natural-looking result, while achieving a patients’ desired improvements.

PROCEDURE SPECIFICS
BEFORE SURGERY
AFTER SURGERY

Overall dissatisfaction with the appearance of the nose (presence of a hump, excessive width of both the bridge and nasal tip, droopy tip, and others).

General (most common).

Rhinoplasty incisions are well camouflaged and heal essentially without a trace. Most incisions are placed inside both nostrils. In the “open” approach (most common), an additional incision is made across the columella (a structure situated between both nostrils). These incisions allow to lift of the skin and manipulate both bone and cartilage of the nose to modify its shape and contour. Depending on the ethnic background, reduction or augmentation of the bridge is performed. The nasal tip commonly requires elevation, projection, and some degree of narrowing. At the conclusion of this operation, internal and external splints are placed to ensure the stability of the nose in the immediate after-surgery time frame.

Imaging is performed to help visualize the desired appearance of the nose. Patients are given instructions on medications, dietary restrictions, and aftercare for the nose in the days following the operation.

Ethnic rhinoplasty is an ambulatory procedure, with patients going home on the day of their surgery. 7- 10 days off from work are recommended for the initial stages of healing. The most frequently performed aftercare involves regular icing and application of ointment along suture lines. Nasal dressings, splints, and sutures are removed about 7 days after surgery. With current advances in medications, bruising can be minimal by 7 days.
