The Importance of Ethnic Relevance in a Rhinoplasty

As rhinoplasty surgeries are becoming more popular among various ethnicities, Fredric Newman, MD, our board-certified plastic surgeon, stresses the need to retain the general characteristics of ones ethnicity. This is important because if a person alters the shape of their nose to a certain degree, it might look out of place on their face. Dr. Newman discusses this concern with patients during their ethnic rhinoplasty consultation.

While patients explain what aspects of their nose they want to change, Dr. Newman will evaluate how it may affect their overall facial aesthetic. If he believes the changes may disrupt their natural harmony of features, he may offer suggestions for more natural-looking results.

Our plastic surgeon strives to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals, but he also wants them to have realistic expectations as to what will and will not complement their overall appearance. By helping patients understand their potential outcome, Dr. Newman believes they can achieve greater satisfaction with their results.

To learn how rhinoplasty may be able to help you achieve your cosmetic goals, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Newman at The Aesthetic Surgery Center. Also, be sure to stay tuned for the next post in our ethnic rhinoplasty blog series, entitled How Ethnic Rhinoplasty Differs from the Traditional Surgery.
