To achieve natural-looking rhinoplasty results for patients of ethnic backgrounds, a surgeon must have extensive specialized training. Surgeons who are qualified to perform ethnic rhinoplasty will have both exceptional surgical skill and an in-depth understanding of a patient’s culture as it pertains to standards of beauty and distinct anatomical characteristics.
Renowned facial sculptor Dr. Jason Emer serves a diverse patient base at his prestigious medical practice. He has incredibly high standards for his team of medical professionals who meet his patients’ rhinoplasty needs.
Ethnic rhinoplasty is an advanced approach to nose surgery that allows us to provide natural-looking enhancements for patients of non-Western backgrounds. The goal of this procedure is to resolve a patient’s concerns with the shape and/or size of the nose while preserving an ethnically congruent facial appearance.
Patients often elect to undergo ethnic rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons, though some patients are also seeking relief from medical conditions. If a patient suffers from obstructed nasal breathing, we can typically incorporate additional alterations to correct functional issues while addressing a patient’s aesthetic goals.
Rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery, is extraordinarily complicated, and ethnic rhinoplasty can involve additional challenges. Few surgeons are trained to effectively tailor rhinoplasty to the specific needs of patients of a wide range of ethnicities.
We have experience and knowledge as it relates to performing nose surgery for patients of Asian, African American, Hispanic, and Middle Eastern descent.
This is an outpatient procedure that takes two to three hours, on average. The length of your surgery will depend on the complexity of making the necessary adjustments to the nasal structure.
While each ethnic rhinoplasty procedure is unique, every nose surgery involves:
Nose job recovery periods range from six to eight weeks. Under-eye bruising can occur for seven to 14 days post-op. Swelling and discomfort in the treatment area can be expected for two to three weeks after ethnic rhinoplasty surgery. At that point, most patients are feeling much more comfortable and confident about the appearance of the nose and will resume social activities.
If a patient’s job does not require heavy lifting or other physically demanding tasks, he or she should be able to return to work after about two weeks. Follow-up appointments allow us to assess how healing is progressing, so we can approve increased activity levels as it is safe to do so.
We meticulously plan each ethnic rhinoplasty, so we can account for key cultural features that affect the surgical approach. Anatomically, nasal structures and facial skin thickness differ from one ethnicity to another. Due to these variances, a rhinoplasty technique that works well for patients of a particular culture can have a profoundly different outcome for patients of other ethnic backgrounds.
We also give careful consideration to cultural standards of beauty and the patient’s unique aesthetic goals. We go to great lengths to gain an accurate understanding of a patient’s desired look, so we can plan and execute the appropriate adjustments.
There is a high degree of customization involved with this procedure, so the price of ethnic rhinoplasty varies. The complexity of the surgery, anesthesia and facility fees, and other factors will affect the cost of your procedure. Pricing details for your ethnic rhinoplasty will be included with your personalized treatment plan.
We employ refined techniques, cultural sensitivity, and artistry to surgically resize and reshape the nose for ethnic rhinoplasty patients. Patients of diverse ethnicities can enjoy culturally-consistent nose enhancement and a more harmonious, balanced facial appearance.
