African American rhinoplasty is a variation on rhinoplasty surgery that has gained popularity rapidly in the last 10 years or so. A subbranch of Ethnic rhinoplasty, African American rhinoplasty will no doubt expand to encompass the multitude of specific ethnic groups that currently fall under the umbrella of the term African American, just as African American rhinoplasty once fell primarily under the umbrella of Ethnic rhinoplasty. For now it is the surgery best suited to address aesthetic concerns that African American patients encounter in the nose. While the surgery shares many procedural techniques with standard rhinoplasty surgery, it aims to give specific attention to details and characteristics that are unique to the nose of African American patients, which play a role in allowing patients to identify as members of the African American community.
Any surgeon who practices rhinoplasty will tell you that the concerns of patients of any given ethnic group will generally trend in one direction, while concerns of another ethnic group will be slightly different. The distribution and density of tissues is also something that varies from one group to another and these are all things that a rhinoplasty surgeon needs to take into account. As a revision rhinoplasty surgeon, it isn’t long before you begin to encounter horror stories from African American patients who recount dealing with rhinoplasty surgeons who took no attention to their ethnic background and simply performed a standard revision, which left the nose looking strange and unnatural.
