What is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

Spread the love

What is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?Ethnic rhinoplasty is a traditional rhinoplasty surgery that is performed on patients of diverse ethnic backgrounds. While the surgery is typically the same as a regular rhinoplasty, the goal of an ethnic rhinoplasty is to aesthetically improve the shape of the nose while keeping the unique look of the patient’s ethnicity. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides ethnic rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities. 

How is Ethnic Rhinoplasty Different?

Rhinoplasty for Caucasian patients usually entails the removal of dorsal humps and defining the nasal tip. Ethnic individuals, such as those of Asian descent, typically have a flatter nasal bridge and more bulbous nasal tips from having less cartilage in the nose. In these cases, rhinoplasty with cartilage grafts will help add projection in the nasal bridge and tip. It is also common with ethnic rhinoplasties to have the base of the nose narrowed.
