A traditional rhinoplasty is a very common procedure, but an ethnic rhinoplasty can be more difficult to perform. It takes particular skill and artistry to improve the appearance of an ethnic nose while still respecting the patient’s individuality and heritage.
In this blog, double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Thomas Romo III of Romo Plastic Surgery in NYC explains what results you can expect from an ethnic rhinoplasty:
What is an ethnic rhinoplasty?
An ethnic rhinoplasty – also known as an ethnic nose job – is a cosmetic procedure that is performed to change the appearance of the nose of a person with ethnic descent.
This procedure requires the surgeon to have advanced technical skills and artistry in order to achieve the results you’re looking for. Some ethnic noses have particular characteristics that need the expertise of an experienced ethnic rhinoplasty surgeon.
The goal is to improve the appearance of your nose while maintaining its unique character and natural appearance.
Who is a candidate for this procedure?
If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose and would like it to look symmetrical to the rest of your face, an ethnic nose job may be a good fit for you. It’s frequently performed on patients who have noses that are non-symmetrical in shape and doesn’t fit their face.
Why should you choose Dr. Romo to perform your ethnic nose job?
Dr. Romo is a pioneer in the field of ethnic rhinoplasty who has developed a unique technique that uses natural tissue and safe porous implants to augment the nose. This helps correct flattened nostrils, or other characteristics. The procedure results in a nose that matches the face shape and ethnicity of each patient.
In addition to his expertise, Dr. Romo treats each patient as an individual and will take time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have before making a recommendation. If an ethnic rhinoplasty is recommended, he’ll use advanced computer imaging to give patients an idea of how your nose will look post-surgery.
