Ethnic Rhinoplasty Vs. Traditional Rhinoplasty By Dr. Fredric Newman on April 03, 2014


The rhinoplasty procedure is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed each year, but the patients undergoing the procedure continue to change. While the U.S. media often portrays beauty as having more European-based traits, not all patients will look natural with the same nasal shape. Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Fredric Newman, explains that patients can look overdone or over-operated on when they alter their nasal shape to adhere to a different ethnicitys characteristics. This is why he spends extra time during the consultation to evaluate a patients aesthetic goals while considering their nasal structure and ethnic background.

As noted in the previous blog post, The Importance of Ethnic Relevance in a Rhinoplasty, Dr. Newman strives to help his patients achieve their goals while maintaining some degree of their ethnic features. With ethnic rhinoplasty, he can help them achieve a more natural-looking, harmonious balance in the face.

Our plastic surgeon tailors his rhinoplasty techniques to each patient that visits The Aesthetic Surgery Center. With ethnic rhinoplasty, in particular, he notes the complicated nature of the procedure, as there is more to consider when reshaping the nose. Dr. Newman stresses the importance of having realistic expectations about surgical outcomes, and he strives to help patients understand how their goals may affect the overall balance of their facial features.
