Asian Rhinoplasty - Ethnic Rhinoplasty
What Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
Ethnic Rhinoplasty is the art of making a natural aesthetic nose that has characteristics related to the race (African, Middle Eastern, Latin American, Asian and Spanish) people belong to. With various surgical techniques, the shape desired by the patient is made by correcting the pathologies of the nose.
Who are the right candidates for Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
Patients with very small and straight nose, nasal imbalance incompatible with the chin and forehead structure, wide nostrils, low disproportionate or excessively raised nasal tips are suitable for this surgery. Ethnic rhinoplasty cannot be performed in children who have not completed their nasal development as in other nose operations, patients must be at least 15 years old.
What Are Outcomes of Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
As a result of ethnic rhinoplasty surgery, the facial features of the patients are balanced without suppressing the ethnic origins of the patients. It can reshape the nose and support the facial appearance; a distinct change in silhouette is achieved. The face is made symmetrical, the eyes, chin, cheeks and other facial features of the patients are redefined. A better face profile will be obtained. The patient’s mood and self-confidence improve. Respiratory problems, deviation of the cartilage and other structural defects of the nose can also be corrected with rhinoplasty.
What Are The Surgical Techniques For Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
Ethnic Rhinoplasty is significantly different from the classical nose reduction surgeries that are mostly performed for Caucasian races, which we call reduction rhinoplasty.
While cartilage and bone should be removed in these races, it is performed by the method of nose enlargement and cartilage addition in African-American origin individuals and Asians.
Most importantly, this technique helps patients to improve their facial appearance without losing their unique facial features that bear traces of their ethnic background.
Ethnic Rhinoplasty can be performed by experienced surgeons who require extensive experience, expertise and knowledge of facial standards for different ethnic groups. It is a study involving finer surgical techniques compared to other rhinoplasty methods. In these operations, grafts and materials such as implants may be needed to obtain a more pronounced and raised nose structure. Natural tissue and porous reliable implants are used to obtain a nose that is suitable for the face shape and ethnicity of the patients.
