I am a black and living in Asia. Is it hopeless for me to expect a quality nose job if I get it done in Thailand or S. Korea due to my race? My friends have gotten amazing results, but they are either Asian or Caucasian. I have read on these forums that black women should only go to surgeon who specializes in black nose jobs in the US. If it is not hopeless, are there any vital questions or requests I should make to ensure that this be a positive experience? I'm new to this. Thanks!

You need a surgeon experienced in rhinoplasty on Black patients regardless of where they live. Although your picture is not clear, it appears that you have thinner skin which will enable you to achieve a better result.
Rhinoplasty, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, After having analyzed all the info. and photos provided to us, i recommend you perform an Open Full Rhinoplasty, includding narrowing of the nasal base and nostrils, with nasal bones treatment (controled fracture) and alar + triangular nasal cartilages re-shaping.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

It is not hopeless for an African American patient to expect a quality nose job in Thailand or South Korea. You can have a quality nose job in any location, as long as you find a surgeon who has great credentials and is well qualified to perform your surgery. There are many fantastic ethnic rhinoplasty specialists overseas as well as the United States. When looking for a surgeon, consider the following:
2) Experience with ethnic rhinoplasty
3) A good amount of before and after photos showcasing the surgeon's results
4) Great patient testimonials
Establishing good communication with your prospective surgeon is essential, and will help ensure you obtain a result you are happy with. I hope this helps, and best of luck.
