Thanks for the question and raising a good point.
There will be defences in races and racial facial proportion, so of course there needs to be a different approach to rhinoplasty in those of different ethnic backgrounds.
The term " Ethnic rhinoplasty" is used when a surgical procedure is modified to take into consideration the tissue make up of particular ethnic group. the technical aspects of th procedure need to differ and the result needs to maintain and be consistent with a persons background.
I suggest seek the opinion of a surgeon with experience in rhinoplasty and I assure they will have dealt with the needs and requirements that different ethnic groups require so as to achieve a good result in each individual case
All the best
