This wonderful young lady was not happy with the appearance of her nose. She stated that her nose was distracting people from paying attention to her other beautiful facial features, especially her eyes. This is significant when we meet people for the first time. Ethnic Rhinoplasty is designed to reduce the overall size of the nose which includes the hump and the tip area. She has a reduction ethnic rhinoplasty and in this picture she is 8 weeks post operative treatment. She had an excellent recovery and results.
Most patients with ethnic background who have larger nose and would like to have rhinoplasty actually want to improve rather than drastically change their nasal features. People of middle Eastern/Mediterranean descent are not denying their heritage but responding to the shifting standards of beauty. Middle Eastern/Mediterranean rhinoplasty has been on the rise over the past several years.
People from this background tend to have not only large noses but drooping nasal tips, although with significant variability. Rhinoplasty can reduce the size of the nose and elevate and define the nasal tip, while still creating a change which fits their face well.
