Ethnic rhinoplasty is the terminology given to patients who are not caucasian who require specialist rhinoplasty techniques to achieve a natural result.
Ethnic nose surgery can vary widely, every ethnicity ranging from Asian, South-East Asian, Middle Eastern, Afro-Caribbean and Mediterranean present a unique set of challenges and typical cosmetic concerns.
There is no “one surgery fits all” approach with ethnic rhinoplasties, as what looks beautiful and natural for one ethnicity may look less complimentary to another.
Nose surgery requires tailoring each procedure to the ethnicity of the patient and requires a different set of techniques and skills for each patient.
As the nose is the centre of your face, and an undefined nose can detract from the overall beauty and facial harmony.
As a consequence of an underlying difference in the nasal anatomy, standard caucasian nose surgery techniques are less effective.
If you’re looking for the best ethnic rhinoplasty in London, you’ll know that it is a surgery of finesse and detail, even a 1mm change can be seen. Dr De Silva believes that nose reshaping requires special techniques for improving definition and shape and keeping a natural appearance.
