Rhinoplasty is the surgery preformed on patients who wish to correct or alter the size, shape or angle or the nose or its proportion with the face. While many surgeons offer their services to patients of any ethnicity, the new school of thought has begun to teach that the unique characteristics in the noses of patients of any given ethnicity should be taken into consideration and that specialized training and experience with members of each ethnicity should be undertaken before a surgeon offers services directed towards those patients. The term African American rhinoplasty identifies rhinoplasty surgery geared specifically toward members of the African American community by surgeons who have experience with the characteristics that differentiate an African American patient’s nose from the nose of patients of other ethnicities. These differences include common physical characteristics of the nose, proportions between the nose and face, and differences in tissue type, density, and distribution.
A dedicated rhinoplasty surgeon like Dr. Paul Nassif applies their specialized knowledge, training, and understanding of the African American nose to provide results that can help patients who wish to retain specific elements of their ethnically African American identity expressed in the physical characteristics of their nose. African Americans and other ethnic patients often find that rhinoplasty surgeons who perform rhinoplasty on primarily Caucasian patients may not be able to provide the results they seek. The changes desired by patients of African American decent and those desired by patients of Caucasian decent are often quite different and it is necessary for a surgeon to approach rhinoplasty for each of their patients with these very different goals in mind. There is no one technique that can address the needs of patients of every ethnicity.
African American patients are advised to seek out a surgeon like Dr. Nassif who has extensive rhinoplasty training and ample experience working with patients who identify as ethnically African American. This assures that patients will find techniques and procedures specifically tailored towards the concerns they have and that the surgeon will be able to provide superior results. After nearly 20 years offering African American rhinoplasty, Ethnic rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Nassif has a proven record of success and patient satisfaction.
