Can a "white nose" rhinoplasty surgery be done on a black person? (Photo)

Good question. Generally speaking subtle thinning of the nose and tip definition are possible for anyone. If you have very short nasal bones and a wide flat nose, and you want a very european type nose with a tall bridge, then it requires placing a dorsal graft. I prefer to use septal cartilage or rib. The result will look great but will not exactly be subtle. Onlay grafts tend to look a bit "plastic" or fake in my opinion, but there are many patients who prefer that aesthetic. Hope this helps.
Yes it is possible to achieve this by choosing the right surgeon.The best way to visualize potential results from a rhinoplasty is get computer imaging performed by several surgeons that perform African American Rhinoplasty. You should also look at the surgeons and before and afters and try to find one that has results you really like. Its imperitive to find a good surgeon that does African American rhinoplasty routinely as this will avoid revision surgery in the future.
Rhinoplasty candidate, 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.Kind regards
