Certain ethnicities have specific nose shapes that are common, yet many people with an “ethnic” nose are unhappy with the appearance. Some people of African descent may prefer smaller nostrils or a narrower base, and some people of Middle Eastern descent want a smaller or less prominent nose. The same is true of Asians, although they typically want a more pronounced nasal bridge. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, has many years of experience helping his patients of all ethnicities find a nose shape that enhances their face using ethnic rhinoplasty.
What is Asian Rhinoplasty?
Although every rhinoplasty procedure that Dr. Rosenberg performs is unique to the patient, there are some that fit into a similar category. Asian rhinoplasty tends to focus on the bridge of the nose. This is since the main complaint is that patients feel like their nose is too small or too flat. The tip of the nose is another area that may be too rounded or short. During an Asian rhinoplasty, the bridge of the nose can be altered to give it more height and prominence. The tip of the nose can be reshaped and nostrils adjusted. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, uses his skills to create the desired nose shape for his patients while maintaining a shape that will retain its ethnicity.
With ethnic nose jobs, it is important that the new shape still matches and blends in with the other features of the face. Dr. Rosenberg takes the time to carefully go over all the options available with his patients. Together, they will determine the best shape that meets their expectations while retaining a balanced appearance.
