Ethnic Rhinoplasty

When choosing a plastic surgeon, it is extremely important to evaluate the surgeon’s breadth of experience. Finding a plastic surgeon who is a rhinoplasty specialist will increase your chances that you will work with a surgeon who has seen and treated a range of cases–this would include African-Americans and patients of different ethnicities. African Americans tend to have certain nasal characteristics, such as a wide bridge, wide nostrils, soft septal cartilage, and thick skin. These anatomical features can present unique challenges. A skilled surgeon can achieve natural-looking results that do not compromise ethnic identity. Major cities like New York have top-rated doctors, but you should ask to see before and after photos of ethnic patients.

Ethnic rhinoplasty

 A good surgeon is a good surgeon, and rhinoplasty is just one of several procedures I do all the time.   As far as I am concerned everyone is an "ethnic rhinoplasty."  Most individuals want to maintain their sense of identitiy after a rhinoplasty.   Good luck.

African American Rhinoplasty

African American rhinoplasty is the most challenging cosmetic procedure, in my opinion. I have performed many African American and ethnic rhinoplasties. I'm sure there are many good surgeons just make sure they can show their work and give you references of other African American patients.
