Our plastic surgeons are known for their expertise in helping patients of Middle Eastern descent enhance the appearance of their noses. We take great pride in our ability to achieve your unique aesthetic goals, while preserving your ethnic identity and natural beauty.
It’s important for Middle Eastern patients to select a plastic surgeon with experience performing ethnic rhinoplasties. The procedure is delicate and complex, requiring a unique artistic eye that not every surgeon possesses.
Although every patient is unique, there are some similarities among individuals of Middle Eastern descent. In many cases, they have large and prominent noses.
They very often feature a large dorsal hump, a drooping or bulbous nasal tip, and a wide overall nose.
A well-done Middle Eastern rhinoplasty addresses these aesthetic concerns in a way that looks natural. The procedure is more involved than simply reducing the size of the nose and altering the tip. The nose must be shaped in a way that honors the patient’s heritage.
Although many Middle Eastern patients share similar features and aesthetic qualities, our plastic surgeons understand that everyone has their own unique cosmetic preferences and desires. As such, we approach every patient individually.
The treatment plan and technique is completely tailored to your needs, avoiding a one-size-fits-all approach. We consider your unique face, and preferences as we compose a surgical plan that makes sense for you.
Your rhinoplasty will be done under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep and completely comfortable throughout the experience.
Once you are sedated, we will create incisions either inside or outside the nose. If you require a minor adjustment, we may be able to create all the cuts inside the nose, resulting in no external scarring. However, if you need a more substantial transformation, or the nasal tip requires careful refining, we will make the incision along the columella, which is the strip of tissue that separates your nostrils. In this case, the incision will be hidden in plain sight and should be virtually imperceptible once its healed.
Through those openings, we will reshape your nose. This process will be completely tailored to your needs. We can resize your nose so that it’s balanced with the rest of your features, lower the nasal bridge if it’s too high, elevate and define the nasal tip, and more.
Once your ideal nose has been sculpted, we will close the incisions with care to minimize any scarring. Once the effects of the anesthesia have worn off, you will be free to return home to begin the recovery period.
A well-done Middle Eastern rhinoplasty is an art form. It creates a more attractive and balanced nose, without compromising your heritage. To begin planning your procedure, please contact our Coronado or Del Mar office today and schedule a consultation.
