If you are of ethnic background, your nose can be representative of your heritage. You want to refine your appearance, without losing who you are. Ethnic rhinoplasty takes into account specific qualities that must remain to avoid stripping you of your nationality and personality.
A successful rhinoplasty starts with selecting the right surgeon. Your surgery must be performed by a surgeon with an intimate understanding of how to create shapes and forms that are compatible to your face, someone who understands how to accentuate your best features and give your face an overall balanced and harmonious appearance. This is particularly important for patients of African, Asian, Middle Eastern, or Hispanic descent.

Toronto-based plastic surgeon and leader in the field of ethnic rhinoplasty Dr. Jamil Asaria tells me in gauze-soft reassuring tones: “Gone are the days when you open the textbooks and see photos of girls from Dallas with little scoop noses that have three centimetres of projection and ‘X’ amount of slope, and the angle between the nose and the lip is 110 degrees. There is no ideal now…. People aren’t coming to me and saying, ‘I want Elisha Cuthbert’s perfect nose.’ They’re saying, ‘I want a nose that still looks Persian or Asian,’ for instance. It’s about balance and proportion and integrating the ethnic personality.Read Article
Rhinoplasty is a very popular and accepted procedure among certain ethnic groups. For example, in Iran rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. Persians are renowned for their beauty and good looks and, as is the case in most Middle Eastern countries, rhinoplasty is a sought after and widely accepted refinement of the face. Often times, taking down a hump on the nose, and narrowing the tip and nostrils slightly can make a huge difference.Read More About Persian Rhinoplasty
Other common ethnic groups that commonly undergo nasal reshaping include patients of Asian background. Patients coming from China, Korea, the Philippines, and other parts of Asia often seek more definition of the bridge of the nose, increased tip refinement and support, and nostril or alar base narrowing. Some surgeons use silicone or Goretex implants to help build up the bridge of the nose and support the tip, but having seen complications with foreign materials such as infection and rejection, Dr. Asaria believes the best material to use is your own body’s cartilage. When needed, Dr. Asaria uses either septal cartilage or cartilage from the ear or ribs to create grafts that help build the structure of the nose for a long-lasting result.Read More About Asian Rhinoplasty
African-American rhinoplasty is another common subtype of ethnic rhinoplasty that has its own individual nuances. In the African community the size and shape of the nose tends to vary considerably from one patient to the next. This heavily dependent upon whether they are descendants of North, East, or West Africa. The patients who are of Caribbean or South American background also have distinctive features about their nose. In general, African-American patients have thicker skin, softer cartilage framework, and a wider or flatter nose. These patients often seek refinement of the tip and nostril reshaping through a procedure known as alar base narrowing.Read More About African-American Rhinoplasty
