What is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

Ethnic rhinoplasty is a nasal surgical procedure that concentrates on changing the appearance of the nose without altering the patient’s ethnic characteristics.

Benefits of Ethnic Rhinoplasty

The primary benefit of ethnic rhinoplasty is that it allows the patient to resolve their nasal issues, whether they are cosmetic or functional, without removing their unique ethnic appearance. As a result, the patient can enjoy a symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing nose that perfectly suits their face.

How is Ethnic Rhinoplasty Performed?

Ethnic rhinoplasty is performed similar to a standard rhinoplasty, but with special consideration made to ensure that the ethnic appearance of the nose is preserved. The patient will receive either general anesthesia that allows them to sleep through the operation or local anesthesia, which makes them unable to feel any discomfort. During an ethnic rhinoplasty, the surgeon will make cuts within the nostrils, and then reshape the inner bone and cartilage of the nose to create a better appearance. In more difficult cases, the surgeon might also place incisions along the base of the nose. Once the procedure has been completed, the patient will normally wear a nasal splint for about one week.
