Rhinoplasty Techniques- Ethnic Rhinoplasty


No two rhinoplasties should be performed the same, as the surgery should be individualized to the patient’s unique size, shape, and structure of the nose. This is especially true when it comes to preserving the patient’s natural look by customizing the nose job to specific ethnic standards and characteristics. An experienced rhinoplasty surgeon will take these cultural considerations into mind, starting at your initial consultation appointment, so as to ensure that you will achieve a look that best suits you and that remains true to who you are.

At Dr. Furze’s office, we know that the most important goal is to achieve a natural looking nose that complements the patient’s other facial features. It is for this reason that we take great care to discuss what this means on a patient-by-patient basis, designing the perfect look for you. An ethnic rhinoplasty by Dr. Furze guarantees that your new nose will not only function properly but will also fit your face.

Asian Rhinoplasty

A typically “Asian” rhinoplasty often addresses such imperfections as a flat nose with a wide bridge, and nostrils that appear flared. Dr. Furze will add projection and definition to the nose, adjusting the bridge and nasal tip in a way that most flatters the patient’s face.

African American Rhinoplasty

African American patients often complain that their nose is too large for their face, specifically that the bridge of their nose and their nostrils are too wide. Most commonly, the African American nose job is aimed at making the nose appear thinner and smaller.

Caucasian Rhinoplasty

Among the different types of ethnic nose jobs, the Caucasian nose job has the most variance. A Caucasian rhinoplasty can address such issues as a crooked bridge, a nasal tip that needs a bit of extra definition, or a hump that makes the patient’s profile appear unsymmetrical.

Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty

Middle Eastern noses are generally marked by a defining hump that makes the nose appear larger and crooked. In addition, a Middle Eastern nose may have a bulbous tip that is rounded and slightly out of proportion.

It is important that your surgeon understands the implications of an ethnic rhinoplasty- giving you the look you desire without doing away with what makes you unique. Dr. Furze’s primarily goal to customize your rhinoplasty to best suit your needs and expectations, while keeping in mind the specific techniques needed for an ethnic rhinoplasty.
