What to expect from ethnic rhinoplasty

Thanks to modern advances in today’s rhinoplasty techniques, non-Caucasian clients no longer have to submit to a Westernized, one-size-fits-all nose job that dismisses their cultural origins and ignores their uniquely attractive idiosyncrasies. Dr. Westreich possesses formidable expertise in facial plastic surgery, reconstruction and otolaryngology, and is able to provide each patient with results tailored expressly to their aesthetic wishes.

For those seeking nasal surgery, the goal is to harmonize the features and blend them with the facial shape for a balanced and attractive whole. The nose itself should not draw attention, but should rather effortlessly allow the gaze to be directed towards the smile and the eyes.

The Challenges of an Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Every ethnicity has a unique nose structure – beyond just appearance. The toughness of the skin and cartilage varies widely with different ethnic backgrounds. To produce a truly remarkable enhancement for people of different backgrounds, a deep understanding and breadth of experience in correctly addressing the challenges posed by each ethnic group in reshaping the nose to suit the facial structure.

Some of the issues that arise in an NYC ethnic rhinoplasty with ethnicities such as those of Middle Eastern descent, Latinos, Asians, and African-Americans include:

  • • Thicker nasal skin
  • • Darker skin tones are more likely to develop scars after surgery
  • • Many ethnicities are more likely to experience excessive swelling after surgery
  • • Many ethnic backgrounds have thicker, less flexible cartilage

Thick Nasal Skin

Thick nasal skin often results in a nose that appears flattened with a poorly defined tip. One of the ways Dr. Westreich can overcome thick nasal skin is by refining the nasal tip and bridge. Depending on your condition, Dr. Westreich may employ either sutures or grafts to reshape your nose and thus tighten the structures beneath the overlying skin. Also, he may suggest adding projection to the tip or bridge in order to create the illusion of a smaller nose, using a structure that helps to stretch the thick skin.

A Dorsal Hump That Affects the Nasal Profile

Straightening a dorsal hump largely depends on the patient’s particular anatomy and the nature of the hump. Dr. Westreich will assess how much of the hump is composed of cartilage and bone, respectively, and thereby make a decision on how to move forward with the process. Using the techniques of a closed rhinoplasty, he will either smooth the bridge of your nose by shaving down the top of the septum or erase the hump by filing down the nasal bones. Latin Americans often only have a slight bump on their bridge which is accentuated by an under-projected tip.

Nostrils That Appear Overly Flared

Wide nostrils are among the most common marks of the Latin American nose and can make a person look unnecessarily angry. In order to reduce the space in the nostrils and thereby provide you with a more balanced look, Dr. Westreich will use either a wedge excision or a nasal sill excision. The incision will be made at the alar base of the nose and will be strategically placed by Dr. Westreich to be the least visible after healing.

Undefined Nasal Tip

Excess cartilage concentrated in the upper tip of the nose can create an unrefined or bulbous tip. Dr. Westreich will most likely re-design your nasal tip using cartilage grafts and sutures to recontour the tip cartilages themselves. Latino noses are typically under projected and underrotated. Cartilage grafts at the base of the nose add strength and long-term stability, as well as helping to lift and give height to the nose, making it look narrower.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

What is the “perfect nose?” While certain nose shapes and sizes are considered more attractive, only a full evaluation of your facial structure will reveal how to create the most attractive remodeling. Our New York ethnic rhinoplasty allows you to maintain the unique and positive aspects of your ethnic background and facial structure, while reducing the less-attractive aspects, such as:

  • • Drooping tip
  • • Hump on bridge of nose
  • • Wide nostrils
  • • Wide nose structure
  • • Bulbous tip

Rhinoplasty Patient Reviews

Absolute best surgeon out there, perfectionist, intelligent, and beyond talented. My nose looks incredible and Dr. Westreich and his team exceeded my expectations. I would not let anyone else touch my face. My experience was painless, I healed so fast, and had no bruising or pain. It was too good to be true. His technique is the most modern out there, he does not use packing or outdated methods that cause pain and that would cause the nose to not look perfect. He trains other surgeons how to accomplish his modern and painless technique. He has paved a new way in the rhinoplasty community and blew other surgeons away. See for yourself! Thank you Dr. Westreich.

Dr. Westreich is the best! I was extremely nervous about getting rhinoplasty but I couldn't have imagined a better outcome. He exceeded my expectations and would recommend him to anyone.

Ethnic rhinoplasty approach

Dr. Westreich typically ensures minimal post-operative discomfort and scarring by employing a strictly conservative closed procedure. He may make use of cartilage grafts to enhance the inner structure of the nose, or he may work to refine and narrow the nasal tip. The nostrils may also be enlarged or shrunk according to the needs of the patient. Symmetry is maintained throughout, and breathing function is much improved.

African American rhinoplasty

Common issues facing African American nose surgery clients include the reduction of an overly wide nasal tip, and the reduction of flared nostrils. Occasionally the doctor will opt to bolster a weak, rounder tip with cartilage borrowed from the nose, ear or another part of the body. In all cases, he is working towards a highly natural-looking result that maintains the patient’s identity and ethnic heritage. The outcome is that friends and family may not immediately recognize the facial improvement as cosmetically-based, but may rather comment that you look revitalized, refreshed and beautiful.

Middle Eastern rhinoplasty

Whether you hail from Arab origin, from Armenia, or from Persia, Middle Eastern rhinoplasty clients will find that Dr. Westreich is sensitive and attuned to their aesthetic needs, and operates on a basis of respect for cultural diversity and individuality. Protruding nasal bridges are refined, overly long noses are reshaped, and the overall appearance of the features is expertly balanced and harmonized. For the female patient, a softer, more elegant profile is created, reflecting sophistication. For the male client, the profile is refined while still preserving its natural strength and character.

Asian rhinoplasty

Where Caucasian clients often request nasal reduction, Asian clients frequently require the opposite: nasal augmentation. Dr. Westreich is highly skilled at enhancing the nasal bridge with rib or ear cartilage for a more pronounced profile. He can also work to refine an overly wide or flat tip and nostrils. Although these changes may be subtle, many Asian patients find their breathing and sleeping is much improved. Dr. Westreich can also provide his Asian clients with eyelid surgery, as well as non-surgical treatments such as facials, dermal fillers and injectables for a more comprehensive makeover.

Latino/Hispanic rhinoplasty

Clients of Latino or Hispanic origin frequently seek out Dr. Westreich for his subtle, organic results and vast knowledge of the nasal anatomy. The doctor is able to balance and refine the features in a way that creates both structural and aesthetic improvement without sacrificing cultural norms. Prominent bridges are resculpted to blend well with the eyes, mouth and ears, while a thick, undefined tip is refashioned to draw attention towards the smile. In Dr. Westreich’s capable hands, imperfections, flaws and even injuries are corrected in a nuanced, natural way that allows each client’s true beauty to shine through, uninterrupted.

Improved Nose Shape and Function

A correctly performed ethnic rhinoplasty in NYC will result in a nose shape and size that truly suits your facial structure, while honoring your ethnic background. No matter what your genetic background, at New Face NY, we are dedicated to creating a perfect harmony and balance that enhances your other facial features. Beyond improving the appearance of your nose, breathing function issues can also be resolved in the same surgical appointment.

The Definition of Beauty

Each ethnic background can have specific facial modeling, with exceptionally attractive features. The most effective way to reshape the nose is to produce a look that enhances the other features. The definition of what is beautiful is in the eye of the beholder. When planning an ethnic rhinoplasty, it is important to listen to the patient and understand what is considered to be the most attractive nose shape and structure in that community. In most cases, a conservative approach produces the most balanced, harmonious, and appealing look.

Advanced Surgical Techniques for Ethnic Rhinoplasty Procedures

At New Face NY, we use the most advanced surgical techniques and state-of-the-art systems and medical equipment. While an ethnic rhinoplasty is a surgery similar to a rhinoplasty performed on a Caucasian in the basics, such as anesthetic and incision placement, once the surgery has begun different surgical techniques must be used. Narrowing of nostrils may be required, as well as careful shaping of the existing cartilage. For some patients, it may be necessary to add volume to create definition on the bridge of the nose. Every surgery is custom-tailored to suit the facial structure of the patient.

Enhance Your Facial Appearance with an Ethnic Rhinoplasty

As your nose is the central feature of your face, it pulls attention. When altering nose shape, size, and structure, it is imperative that the procedure is performed with great delicacy and care, as the final result will have a significant impact on your overall facial balance and how your newly enhanced nose draws attention to your other features.
