Ethnic Rhinoplasty

The nose is greatly affected by your genetics. Every ethnic group has nose features that may throw off the balance of the face. Ethnic rhinoplasty is a subsect of cosmetic nose reshaping that addresses specific nose traits for Asian, African, Middle Eastern and other ethnic groups. At HMS Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL, we offer ethnic rhinoplasty to reshape the nose for a harmonious facial appearance.

The goal of ethnic rhinoplasty is to reshape the nose while retaining the ethnicity to match the rest of the facial features. An African American or Asian rhinoplasty needs to be performed differently than a Caucasian nose job. There are different goals, and the nose structures vary – every procedure should be carefully designed to achieve the desired outcome.

Asian Rhinoplasty

The typical concern with the Asian nose is that it can lack the height desired. The bridge can be flatter, which can impact the facial appearance and nose function. Raising the nasal bridge slightly can have a beautiful effect, creating more depth and definition to the face and profile. This can be achieved with careful lifting and augmentation of the nasal septum to create the desired nose height and shape.

African American Rhinoplasty

The African nose is generally wider at the alar base, but some patients complain that their nose and nostrils are too wide. Reshaping or resizing the nostrils is a minimally invasive approach that is often all that is needed to create the desired appearance. For those who have an overly wide nose, an alar base reduction can be performed to achieve a more balanced nose shape to match the other facial features.

My oncologist recommended Dr. Salinas for my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction and I couldn’t be more grateful. He is not only an excellent professional but also a very kind human being.

Dr. Harry Salinas is an absolutely amazing doctor! I am a petite woman and due to menopause, my breast became very large affecting my back, neck and shoulders. Dr. Salinas performed a breast reduction and breast lift surgeon. Dr. Salinas invested a significant amount of time explaining the procedure. He was incredibly accommodating as regards to my schedule. He and his staff were always available for prompt follow up on any questions. The results were far beyond my expectations. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the procedure. Dr. Salinas has changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Salinas for his skill, professionalism, kindness and good heart!
