A low nasal bridge is probably the most common surgical indication for rhinoplasty in our Asian patients. However, unlike many other surgeons who use unnatural silicone implants, we utilize your own natural cartilage to build up the bridge and give the tip more meaningful definition. The result is a natural look that lasts.

As would be expected with any ethnic population, we have found that there is a continuum of nasal features in our Hispanic patients instead of distinct types. Rather than trying to categorize various subgroups, at Beverly Hills PROFILES we focus on your individual characteristics and goals. In general, we have found that our Hispanic patients’ facial and nasal characteristics can be differentiated from our Caucasian patients in the following ways:
- Broader faces, commonly with prominent cheekbones and a relatively small nose
- A slightly small chin
- A nasal hump
- Wider nostrils
- Wider and lower nasal bridge
- Moderately thick, sebaceous skin
It is important to work with surgeons who will take the time to understand what you are trying to achieve and who are comfortable dealing with different ethnic populations. We take these differences in anatomic and structural components into consideration when planning your surgery and explaining what can be accomplished.
During your consultation, we will work together to define what your aesthetic goals are using computer imaging. Based on your desires and your individual anatomy, we will then devise a surgical plan which is best suited to achieve your individual goals.
Potential Risks and Temporary Side-Effects of Ethnic Rhinoplasty
Ethnic rhinoplasty surgery allows patients to improve their appearance while maintaining a strong connection to their ethnic background. However, there are potential risks and temporary side-effects you should be aware of before surgery. These include:
- Risks related to anesthesia
- Septal perforation
- Temporary swelling and discomfort
- Difficulties breathing
- Small chance of infection
At PROFILES, our team of ethnic rhinoplasty experts evaluates each patient and takes steps to shorten the recovery period as much as possible. Drs.
