What Is an African American Rhinoplasty?
As a subset of primary rhinoplasty, an African American rhinoplasty offers a safe, effective cosmetic nose surgery for African Americans. It allows a person to modify the nose – perhaps the most prominent characteristic of the face – to enhance the facial appearance.
In many instances, an African American rhinoplasty may be performed to ensure the size and shape of the nose complement an individual's other facial features. Or, an African American nose job may be completed to restore damaged or impeded nasal functions.
It also is important to note that African American nose surgery is complex. Therefore, it is paramount to choose an African American rhinoplasty specialist who possesses comprehensive training and experience. An African American rhinoplasty specialist will study a patient's facial features, offer surgery recommendations and deliver the best and most natural-looking results.
How Does an African American Nose Job Differ from a Traditional Nose Job?
An African American rhinoplasty may be used to address characteristics that are unique to the African American nose, including:
- Wide Nasal Ala (Nostrils): An African American nose surgery enables a person to reduce the flare of the nostrils and make them appear smaller.
- Wide Nasal Tip: With an African American rhinoplasty, an individual can thin and reshape the cartilage in the lower portion or tip of the nose.
- Wide or Low Nasal Bridge: If the bridge of the nose is too wide, too low or both too wide and too low, African American nose surgery may help an individual correct the issue.
A facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon requires a high level of expertise to complete a successful African American rhinoplasty. Selecting an African American rhinoplasty specialist like Dr. Babak Azizzadeh ensures an individual can experience the benefits of an effective African American nose job.
