While a person may want to change certain aspects of their nose for a more attractive appearance or improved breathing, they may also worry about losing certain features that represent their culture, heritage, and ethnicity. An ethnic rhinoplasty strives to make cosmetic or medical adjustments to the nose while preserving the features the patient wants to keep. At Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, the plastic surgeons have extensive experience and training in nose surgeries that allows them to improve the nose while keeping the nuances of their cultural identity for ideal results.

"I had a second breast augmentation within the same year as my first and Dr. Nuveen really cared to listen to my concerns and really focused on what could be improved on the second one. Staff is impeccable and full of wonderful trained women. I feel at ease when I come into the office every time knowing I’m in good hands. My first augmentation, the right one didn’t drop at all and second dropped too much. Dr. Nuveen immediately starting making me a new plan on what to do next. None of what happened to my first one could have been predicted or been prevented and I was thrilled I picked Dr. Nuveen because I knew as soon as I brought up my concerns, I had his full and undivided attention. I couldn’t have asked for a better staff or surgeon and I will definitely be going back for anything and everything else cosmetically that I’ll need."- B.S. / Google / Jun 03, 2021
One of the most significant differences among different ethnicities is the nose. The structures of the nose are different between Caucasians, Hispanics, African Americans, Middle Easterners and Asians. It’s important for patients to find a cosmetic surgeon that understands the patient’s cultural differences and will create beautifully balanced, aesthetic results without compromising their ethnicity.
African American Rhinoplasty
The typical shape of an African American nose includes an increased width, definition loss, and lack of projection. Most cosmetic surgeons are asked to build dorsal height, define the nasal tip through thick skin and create a more symmetrical appearance. However, these requests are challenging to achieve because of an African American’s anatomy and heterogeneity.
Cosmetic surgeons have mastered surgical techniques for Hispanic rhinoplasty. Most patients seek a narrowing or augmenting of the nasal dorsum, nasal tip definition, nasal rotation and an increase in projection. A highly skilled cosmetic surgeon knows how to achieve the patient’s desired results while maintaining Hispanics’ multiethnic origin and migration patterns.
During/After Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery
As a complex procedure, ethnic rhinoplasty is a 1-to-2-hour, outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. Patients will need to wear a nose splint during the recovery process to help control bruising and swelling around the eyes and nose. Patients can expect final results a full year after surgery.
Expected Cost for Ethnic Rhinoplasty
Most patients can expect to pay between $5,770 and $7,500; however, a better estimate can be provided after a consultation exam with the surgeon. Surgical techniques, such as bone restructuring, grafting and cartilage reconstruction, can increase the cost of the procedure.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty FAQs
Will I Look Different?
Yes, ethnic rhinoplasty will alter a patient’s facial appearance. However, a vastly experienced cosmetic surgeon uses surgical techniques to create a natural appearance that maintains the patient’s cultural and ethnic features that make them happy.
Break My Nose?
Even though breaking the nose is a common technique, it is not required. For some patients, a fracture allows the surgeon to perform certain functions and techniques that may not be accessible without a fracture.
Surgeons use nasal packing to help control bleeding. Complex surgeries, like ethnic rhinoplasty, may cause more bleeding than normal.
Selecting the Right Surgeon?
It’s crucial for patients to choose an ethnic rhinoplasty specialist with the skill and experience to perform a complex procedure. The ideal surgeon should have a full understanding of ethnic and cultural differences in the anatomy of the nose. Higher levels of practice increase the chances of better surgical results.
