What Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
Ethnic rhinoplasty1 (also known as ethnic nose job) specifically addresses the intricacies associated with performing rhinoplasties on distinct ethnic groups. To successfully perform ethnic rhinoplasty, the plastic surgeon must be able to identify and preserve the unique characteristics associated with each ethnic or cultural group. The best rhinoplasty surgeon will be able to enhance the shape and function of the nose without erasing the patient’s identity or heritage.
Dr. Rizk doesn’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach for rhinoplasty, and has a refined technique when it comes to dealing with patients from different cultural backgrounds.
