Your ethnicity plays a major role in the shape of your nose. People of all ethnicities may be unhappy with the shape of their nose, but they still want a nose that looks natural on their face. Caucasian noses are very different than non-Caucasian noses, and it is vital that rhinoplasty procedures retain the correct ethnicity results. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio at Uptown Body Contouring specializes in non-Caucasian rhinoplasty at our medical center in New York City.
The concerns with ethnic noses are different than Caucasian nose concerns. While Caucasian patients usually want to reshape the nasal tip or shorten the bridge, non-Caucasian patients rarely are concerned with these features. Instead, they may want to raise the bridge or reduce the alar base. These differences are why it is vital to have a plastic surgeon that specializes in ethnic nose jobs or non-Caucasian rhinoplasty.
Dr. Del Vecchio is an Ivy League trained, board certified plastic surgeon that has performed many non-Caucasian cosmetic surgeries over decades of practice. For non-Caucasian rhinoplasty, he takes the time to discuss in depth the preferences of the patient to determine the best nose reshaping procedure. Most ethnic nose jobs are performed with open rhinoplasty to achieve the best results.
Ethnic Nose Reshaping Surgery
Reshaping the nose can have beautiful results. Whether you want to resize your nostrils or lift your nasal bridge, achieving the right nose shape can balance your facial features. Rhinoplasty can make subtle or dramatic changes to your nose, depending on your preferences. During your consultation with Dr. Del Vecchio, he will listen to your aesthetic goals and discuss realistic expectations to create the ideal nose for your face.
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and can require a few hours to perform, but each procedure is unique. Patients can expect to recover over 2-3 weeks while the swelling and bruising dissipate. Our surgeon and staff will help you prepare for post-surgery recovery to achieve the best possible results with as little discomfort as possible.
If your nose shape or size makes you feel self-conscious, rhinoplasty may be the solution. To achieve facial balance that matches your ethnicity, contact us at Uptown Body Contouring to discuss non-Caucasian rhinoplasty and to schedule your private consultation with Dr. Del Vecchio.
