Skin thickness and technique determine results
Yes! You are correct for the most part. Asian noses and black noses have more structural similarities just as Indian noses and Caucasian noses are more similar. However, compared to Asian noses, black noses tend to be wider at the lower 1/3 and the skin is somewhat thicker skin. This may affect the final result at the nasal tip, but in general, the principles and techniques should be the same. Without seeing pictures of the rhinoplasty results you are referring to, another consideration is the patient's preference and desired end result. This may also affect the results you were viewing.
