African American Rhinoplasty

As many different races and ethnic groups as there are in the world, there are even more features that make each group unique, especially when it comes to the nose. The one thing that every group has in common is there are always some that are unhappy with the appearance of their nose. For African Americans, some of the common reasons for exploring rhinoplasty is to add height to the bridge of the nose, change the shape of the tip or minimize wide nostrils. Whatever the reason, the right surgeon to trust for an African American rhinoplasty is Dr. Khosh.

African American Nose Surgery

The important aspect of an African American and other ethnic rhinoplasty is to ensure the overall nose appearance still retains the features that are specific to the race. No one wants a nose that looks out of place on their face. Other considerations when approaching an African American nose job are differences in nasal bone length, delicate cartilage and skin scarring that may be different than some other ethnic groups.
