Chicago Rhinoplasty Doctor Recommendations

Hi, I am black and Hispanic. I have a flat nose with almost no bridge and my nostrils need narrowing--I need a nose bridge and a nice tip.

It annoys me when some doctors talk about saving ethnic features. Why can't I just have what's best for me instead of them wanting to produce the same cookie cutter options? I want a nose that's just right for my face structure, and ethnicity is not a factor. If people want to save features and come out looking like nothing was done, why have it in the first place, I wonder.

Are there any surgeons that specialize in nose reshaping in my area? How much does it cost ?

Ashley Lynn, you raise a good point. If feasible, patient needs and objectives should definitely shape the surgical plan and the surgeon's biases should not supercede the patient's desires.  The ASPS website is a good starting point for qualified surgeons. Dr. Brian Braithwaite and Gregory Wiener are possibilities. Consult with 3 - 4 surgeons to understand your options.

Ethnic Noses

Drs. Dean Toriumi and Regan Thomas are excellent, experienced surgeons located in your community. Do not shop price.  It is very challenging to improve the unwanted characteristics of your nose.
