Ethnic Rhinoplasty Dallas
Classic teaching is cosmetic rhinoplasty training pertains to the surgery of the Caucasian, female nose, virtually ignoring the gender and ethnic considerations other patients. However, most patient desiring cosmetic reshaping of their noses prefer to maintain their characteristic ethnic and gender identity.
In case of gender, when performing male rhinoplasty, Dr. Saman maintains strong masculine lines and features while addressing areas of concern. An overly feminized look it be avoid through meticulous analysis of the nose and consideration of patient’s specific desires.
When it comes to ethnic rhinoplasty, Dr. Saman has extensively studied the features of various ethnic nasal shapes. The African-American nose is characteristically very different from the Asian or the Latino noses, for example, marked by less rigid lower lateral cartilages, wider alar bases and shorter nasal bones.
The Middle Eastern and Greek nasal features are unique and cannot be adequately addressed using the basic Caucasian rhinoplasty techniques. Many of our Middle Eastern patients who have had previous rhinoplasty elsewhere return to our practice in Plano for revision work with complications such as pinched nasal tip, nasal bone collapse, or difficulty breathing. These complications can be avoided if the original rhinoplasty analysis is customized for the patient’s ethnic features.
Dr. Saman has studied these unique features extensively. His research on the topic can be found here.
