Carolina Facial Plastic Surgery

Ethnic Rhinoplasty FAQ

Undergoing an ethnic rhinoplasty in Charlotte requires an expert facial plastic surgeon who can not only provide you with the results you’re looking for, but also help you better understand the procedure. Below are some of the frequently asked questions that I hear at Carolina Facial Plastics in Charlotte. Should you have additional comments or concerns that haven’t been addressed, I encourage you to contact me to schedule a consultation.

Q: What’s the difference in nose jobs for westernized, caucasian noses and for an Asian (Korean, Chinese, etc). Is the technique used in Asian rhinoplasty special? It what ways does the Asian nose anatomy differ from other noses? I think some doctors call the procedure “Oriental Rhinoplasty” too.
A: Asian noses tend to have:

  1. Weak bridge or dorsum
  2. Bulbous tip
  3. Wide nostrils
  4. Thick Skin

Each ethnicity has its own cultural ideas of beauty that must be appreciated and enhanced with any plastic surgery procedure that is performed. If you are interested in ethnic rhinoplasty that respects your cultural identity, please take the time to find a professional who has experience in this area. I hope this helps.

Q: Am I a good candidate to undergo an ethnic rhinoplasty in Charlotte?
A: You might be a great candidate to undergo a procedure if you are in good health and have always wanted to improve the appearance or breathing of your nose.

Q: Will an ethnic rhinoplasty improve my breathing?
A: A rhinoplasty will improve your breathing if you were having nasal obstruction before the surgery. Additional procedures may be performed as needed to improve your breathing.  They include a septoplasty, turbinate reduction, and/or internal and external nasal valve reconstruction. During your consultation at my office in Charlotte, we can discuss the indicated procedures to improve your breathing.

Q: On which types of noses are you comfortable performing procedures?
A: As a trained facial plastic surgeon, I can help anyone of any race or ethnicity achieve their ideal goals. I am comfortable performing rhinoplasty on patients with Hispanic, African American, Asian, middle eastern, or Indian decent.

Q: Why do people undergo an ethnic rhinoplasty?
A: Some of the most common reasons for undergoing a surgery include correcting a nose that is too large or small, re-defining the nasal tip, removing a nasal hump, and creating improved facial symmetry.

Q: How do you ensure a natural result during an ethnic rhinoplasty?
A: When performing a surgery for a patient, I make sure to always consider several factors that will influence the overall result of their new nose, including their gender, race, and ethnicity. To achieve facial balance, I make sure that symmetry can be seen through every facial feature, meaning that the nose is in harmony with the chin, lips, eyes, forehead, and cheeks.  There are certain features of an ethnic nose that must be maintained to ensure a natural result.

Q: Why come to Carolina Facial Plastics for an ethnic rhinoplasty?
A: As a board certified head and neck surgeon, I’m able to bring a unique knowledge to my patients that relies heavily on not only my background in cosmetic surgery, but also my ability to understand the function of the nose. I can create a natural and balanced nose while also assuring proper nasal function.

Q: What are the benefits of undergoing a procedure?
A: It’s important to select a surgeon who understands that you don’t want to lose your cultural identity as a result of your new nose. It is my goal to improve the overall appearance, shape, and size of your nose while still striving for tailored beauty.

Q: How long will it take me to see the final results of my ethnic rhinoplasty?
A: As with all rhinoplasty procedures, it can take up to an entire year to see the final results, with some patients requiring two full years. The nose is a very sensitive area and undergoes an immense change during the procedure. However, many patients can see an improvement in the appearance over the course of a few weeks.
