This will be my second surgery after having had the first one well over a decade ago. I am looking for a mature (in age) surgeon that has performed thousands of revision surgeries and ideally only focusses on rhinoplastys. My nose has afro-carribean features - wide nose, slightly bulbous tip and large nostrils. I am not however of african origin - my family from India! I have inherited this nose from my father and desperately seek to find the right Dr.

There are tremendous differences among ethnic groups, and significant variations within ethnic groups. We strive to maintain your ethnic look while improving outstanding features.
Many plastic surgeons have limited experience working with patients of African, Asian, Middle Eastern, or Hispanic descent. This lack of experience with diverse ethnicities can often result in rhinoplasty procedures that produce incongruous results.
I also only perform procedures on the face which gives me more expertise than a regular plastic surgeon. Furthermore I am also a board certified ENT to ensure breathing issues are not an issue, and have written 2 medical textbooks focused on rhinoplasty.
I would be happy to review your case if you are interested, please send me an email.

Revision Ethnic Rhinoplasty
Each ethnic group presents its own challenges in revision rhinoplasty. In India there are several groups with rather distinct characteristics. Some have thick skin, some thin. Others have poory projected tips, and others large humps. You should seek a surgeon who has experience in dealing with these groups, and who is comfortable with the anatomy and aesthetic goals. Preserving some sense of ethnicity is usually a good starting point.
