Ethnic rhinoplasty is one of the hottest topics among Dr. J.’s many clients, and for good reason. Much of our opinion of whether or not a given person is attractive is based on the shape and placement of the nose. Whether a patient is of African, Asian, or Mediterranean ancestry, ethnicity can complicate the matter because certain shapes that are common in various groups may be considered less attractive by the majority culture simply because they are less common. Ethnic rhinoplasty therefore refers to the practice of the surgery in a manner that reflects the patient’s ancestry and does not seek to replicate a so-called “standard” shape.
Over the years, there has been much discussion of the role of ethnicity in plastic surgery, particularly as it has related to certain very well-known celebrities. Indeed, one reason for revision rhinoplasty is surgeries that have made patients, and sometimes patients’ friends and family, uncomfortable because the nose seems to “belong” to someone of a different ancestry.
