What Is An Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

The performance of ethnic rhinoplasties is a specialty of Dr. Azizzadeh’s and involves completing a nose job for a patient who is of one of many ethnic descents, including:

  • Asian
  • Middle Eastern
  • Indian
  • African American

Differing from a traditional rhinoplasty, an ethnic rhinoplasty aims to keep cultural identity intact for a patient through creating a completely custom procedure. As cosmetic surgery continues to develop, it’s becoming increasingly aware that certain plastic surgery procedures were developed years ago to treat only one type of patient, specifically those of Caucasian descent.  

Because some ethnicities have nasal characteristics that are unique to each race, Dr. Azizzadeh believes that approaching each patient as an individual rather than a procedure is the best way to achieve a result that is aesthetically pleasing and will not diminish a persons cultural background and heritage. To accomplish this, Dr. Azizzadeh aims to aims to achieve facial symmetry, which brings the most natural and balanced results to the patient regardless of skin type.

It’s extremely common for individuals seeking an ethnic rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills to do so for one or more of the following reasons, including but not limited to:

  • Wide Nose
  • Flat Bridge
  • Large Hump
  • Asymmetric Nostrils
  • Droopy Tip

Like any other nose job or rhinoplasty procedure that Dr. Azizzadeh performs, the goal is to re-shape the nose by altering the cartilage and bone under the nose. In some cases, it may be necessary to perform a cartilage graft to build a more aesthetically pleasing and functionally sound nose. Cartilage grafts are most often taken from behind the ear or ribs. If you’re a candidate for additional cartilage grafting, Dr. Azizzadeh will address your every concern during your rhinoplasty consultation.
