Same goal but different approach
The primary goal of any rhinoplasty procedure to help a patient reshape their nose for cosmetic reasons or repair any structural defects to enable proper breathing. Ethnic rhinoplasty redefines a person’s nose to be more proportionate to create balance with the other features of their face while preserving their ethnic identity. An experienced facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Sadati will always consider a patient’s ethnic background and customize the process to keep distinct facial features intact while achieving the aesthetic goals needed.
Ethnic rhinoplasty difference
Noses come in all shapes and sizes, which is why rhinoplasty procedures are one of the most complex cosmetic surgeries. The nasal anatomy does vary significantly between different ethnic groups. Ethnic rhinoplasty procedures in Orange County aim at giving patients the aesthetic results they want while preserving their ethnic qualities. Dr. Sadati has helped numerous patients with diverse backgrounds. Hispanic, Greek, Middle Eastern, African American, and Asian are just a few of the ethnic cultures that Dr. Sadati has helped over the last decade.
A customized procedure for ethnic complexities
Since there are varying needs for each ethnic rhinoplasty procedure, surgical skill and experience are essential. Today, the advanced surgical technique combines traditional rhinoplasty with a more conservative approach to preserve a patient’s ethnic character. Indian culture requires a specific look for their heritage. African American or Asian procedures typically involve tissue or bone structure removal to narrow the nasal bridge or create smaller nostrils.
An aggressive surgical approach can drastically alter a patient’s nose, which can have a devasting effect on the final results. For non-Caucasian noses, blending a creative eye, surgical expertise, and an understanding of the importance of maintaining a patient’s cultural background is a complex trifecta that Orange County plastic surgeon Dr. Sadati strives to achieve with each ethnic rhinoplasty procedure.
