Ethnic Rhinoplasty

The goal of a rhinoplasty or nose job surgery is creating a nose that is an aesthetic facial feature, functional and in natural harmony with the other facial features. The ethnicity of each surgical candidate is important in planning and executing a rhinoplasty. Factors such as skin quality, cartilage resilience, nostril shape and bony height can vary according to the ethnic origin. Dr. Khosh takes these considerations into account when evaluating patients for a rhinoplasty.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dorsal nasal augmentation is a frequently requested by Asian and Latino patients. The nose can be built up through placement of implants or grafts. Implants such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) with brand names such as Gortex and Medpore work very well. Cartilage implants from the nasal septum, ear cartilage or rib cartilage constitutes other options for augmentation materials.

The technical term for this procedure is increasing tip projection. In ethnic rhinoplasty this maneuver involves placement of cartilage implants in the nasal tip. Cartilage grafts in this area not only advance the tip; they can also add definition and refinement to the nasal tip.

Nostril narrowing is routinely done during rhinoplasty. In order for the results to be natural, incision placements need to be precise and the sutures need to be perfectly placed.

In rhinoplasty, the cartilage and bony framework of the nose is altered. These changes need to become visible through the skin. In thick-skinned patients, maneuvers such as cartilage grafting may be needed to add definition to the appearance of the nose. Thick skin has the advantage of allowing placement of grafts or implants without the fear of an implant outline becoming visible on the nose.

Related Procedures

Rhinoplasty is commonly performed with septoplasty (correction of a deviated septum) and turbinate (internal nasal membrane) reduction to enhance breathing. In some rhinoplasty procedures, repair of the nasal valve may also be warranted to ensure good breathing. In order to achieve balance in the face, chin augmentation may be recommended during a rhinoplasty consultation. Sinus surgery can be safely combined with rhinoplasty, in individuals with chronic sinus issues.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.
Leah G.
Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.
