When considering plastic surgery procedures, many people want to preserve their unique features and beauty, especially while addressing cosmetic concerns related to maintaining their ethnic identity. Just as no two people are alike, different races and ethnicities have specific facial features that distinguish them from others. In recent years, however, traditional plastic surgery techniques such as rhinoplasty or reshaping the nose have only been adapted to westernized facial and bone structures.

Asian noses typically present as a low, straight bridge, with a wide bridge in the middle of the nose. In addition, this nose type has a weaker appearance, with broad nasal bones, rounded and sometimes flat tips, wide nostrils with outer walls of thick skin, and smooth cartilage.

Hispanic (Afro-American) patients with ancestry from South or Central America have a prominent protruding high bridge, thick skin, and wide nostrils with thick outer walls. Also, people of this breed tend to have nasal features such as a broad flat tip, short upper lip, and a softer, weaker nose.

Because there is so much variation in facial appearance and structure among different ethnicities, our surgeon can use specific surgical techniques to achieve the results you desire. Our surgeons have extensive experience and training in rhinoplasty procedures for patients of all races. If you are interested in ethnic rhinoplasty, our surgeons will tailor their surgical approach just for you to ensure you get the desired results while embracing your diversity.

Ethnic rhinoplasty patients in Turkey usually resort to this rhinoplasty for some reasons. These causes include an increase in the bridge of the nose, narrowing and reshaping of the nostrils, removal of bumps and depressions, or enlargement and definition of the tip of the nose.

People from all ethnic backgrounds flock to Turkey to be treated by our surgeons. That’s why our company has extensive experience in treating all ethnicities. The surgeons’ training within a diverse community gives them unique insight into approaching each ethnic rhinoplasty procedure.

Our experts consider the rhinoplasty procedure to be the most satisfying and challenging surgery to perform. This makes ethnic rhinoplasty much more complex and enjoyable. When the results of ethnic rhinoplasty begin to emerge in Turkey, the aim is to make the patient’s nose more aesthetically pleasing. But the changes are so subtle that no one can pinpoint the exact difference in appearance.

What is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

Ethnic rhinoplasty is a procedure that has the same goals as traditional rhinoplasty. However, this procedure requires specific techniques to account for the differences in facial structure between people of African, Asian, and Latino descent. Each ethnic group not only has different cartilaginous bone structures but also differs in skin texture and thickness. Similarly, every culture has a different perception of what is aesthetically pleasing. Therefore, you should consider these factors in the ethnic rhinoplasty procedure.

Ethnic nose shaping uses many of the same techniques as traditional rhinoplasty. But it must also adapt to the different bone structures that characterize people of different ethnicities. Our surgeons, who are ethnic rhinoplasty specialists, consider the results you want while balancing the nose in harmony with the natural proportions of your face.

Who are Ideal Candidates for Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

Patients who are dissatisfied with one or more features of their nose and think that their nose is unattractive, such as those considering traditional rhinoplasty, are generally ideal candidates for ethnic rhinoplasty in Turkey. While unique nose features such as a straight bridge or hump can characterize certain ethnicities, the results of nose reshaping procedures work to enhance natural features by seamlessly blending them with existing beauty. Other common concerns that you can address with ethnic rhinoplasty include:

  • A broad nose base
  • A droopy nose tip or lack of projection
  • A retracted columella or the area of ​​the nose between the nostrils.
  • Large or disproportionate nostrils
  • Wide or flat nose bridge
  • D structural effects
  • Nasal asymmetry or curvature

The best way to determine if you are a candidate for ethnic rhinoplasty is to arrange a face-to-face consultation with our surgeons. A consultation with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon provides an ideal opportunity to discuss the changes you want to see and review all available options to meet your goals.

What Happens During the Consultation of Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

During the consultation, our surgeon will ask about your medical history and whether you are taking any current drugs. Next, our specialist will look at the different areas of your nose that need improvement or augmentation. After evaluating your nose structure, the surgeon will recommend corrective surgery according to your personal goals.

Before you decide on an operation, you come for a preliminary examination by one of our specialists, who specializes in rhinoplasty. There will be a lot of information to deal with, and it is essential that you feel safe.

During the preliminary review, you review the changes you want to make. Thus, the expert evaluates whether you can achieve the features you want. It would be best if you clarified what changes you want. But you should also be aware that nature limits what changes are possible. Our doctor will give detailed information about the procedure, its course, and possible side effects and complications.

If you are considering ethnic rhinoplasty in Turkey, you will want to know how the surgery performs and how it can improve your appearance, self-confidence, or health. During your consultation, our doctor will answer all questions you may have completely and honestly. The doctor will evaluate the nose and its effect on facial appearance, learn more about your medical history, and determine if you are a good candidate for ethnic rhinoplasty.

The consultation is also when our surgeon will outline the ethnic rhinoplasty process and address any questions or concerns. A good relationship between the patient and the surgeon is essential for successful facial plastic surgery. Confidence is developed during the consultation phases before surgery, based on realistic expectations and rigorous medical experience. It is also crucial that you understand this surgery. Since it isn’t ideal for nose surgery, the surgeon tries to beautify the nose aesthetically and create better harmony with other facial features.

Ethnic rhinoplasty aims to make a face look natural and harmonious compared to the rest of the face. A change in the bridge of the nose, reduction in the size or width of the nose, narrowing of the nostrils, a change in the distance between the nose and the upper lip, or reshaping of the nasal tip can be.

The vast majority are satisfied with the result. However, it is always valid in plastic surgeries where the result isn’t permanent. The natural aging of the body continues and eventually changes the outcome. How fast the body ages are individual; for example, hereditary factors, smoking, and sun exposure can spoil the aesthetic appearance.

In addition, it is essential to remember that the operation is associated with a specific risk of complications, and the final result may not always meet your and the specialist’s expectations. Your recovery process takes place gradually, so you should wait one year till 1,5 year before seeing the final result of your rhinoplasty. However, a few weeks after the operation, you will already be able to see your new look. How long it takes to heal is very different from person to person.

Sometimes our surgeon may also suggest a minor correction to improve your result further. The new procedure will be less extensive in this case than the first operation.

What is the procedure of Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

Follow the steps of the ethnic rhinoplasty procedure in Turkey:

  • Anesthesia

You will receive general anesthesia for your operation to be comfortable. Thus, you will not have any aches and pains.

  • Incision according to techniques

Different ethnic rhinoplasty techniques are helping to reshape your nose today to correct any imperfections or discomfort in your nose. The purpose of ethnic rhinoplasty isn’t to change the structure of your face while respecting the profile of your ethnic group.

For example, if you have a flat nose, the procedure is based on cartilage grafts taken from the patient’s own body and helps to improve the shape of your nose, making it thinner at the tip. Otherwise, when it desires to narrow the nose, it is common to make three incisions (base, outer, and columella in each nostril).

In consultation with our surgeons, you will determine the technique together. In the closed design, the surgeon limits the incisions to the inside of the nasal passages and removes visible scars after the procedure. With ethnic rhinoplasty, this option prefers because these patients tend to have thicker skin and are at higher risk of swelling after surgery. Also, an incision in the outer tissue between the nostrils may be more prominent in the African or Middle Eastern nose than in the Caucasian nose.

Open ethnic rhinoplasty involves an incision at the nose’s base that provides greater internal structure access. When necessary, a Z-shaped incision is used, which minimizes visible scarring once the incision has fully healed. Patients who need further corrections are best suited for this technique.

Another method is to remove a small amount of bone to eliminate nasal protrusion.

  • Forming

Our surgeon will shape your nose and give the finishing touches to best suit your facial aesthetics. Thus, your face becomes much more symmetrical. Your eyes, chin, cheeks, and other facial features redefine. You will have a better facial aesthetic profile.

Finally, our specialist ends the process by closing the incisions with aesthetic angles. There will be a significant improvement in your mood and self-confidence. Your breathing problems, cartilage deviation problems, and other structural defects of the nose are also corrected in this way. Our staff will take you to your room to rest, and you will stay in the hospital for one night.

How is the Recovery After Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

  • During the first two days, you can make ice compresses with the instruction of our specialist.
  • You should protect your nose from physical blows for several days.
  • You may have asymmetries in your nostrils until 2 or 3 months after the surgery. After full recovery, you can expect 90% to 95% symmetry in the nostrils.
  • It is normal to have a slight oozing or dripping bleeding after the surgery. However, you should see your doctor for severe and ongoing bleeding. After the operation, the nose may be intermittently blocked. This can continue for 2 or 3 months.
  • It may take 10 to 14 days for edema and bruises to disappear. After a month, your swelling and edema gradually decrease and fade.
  • A few days after ethnic rhinoplasty, the doctor removes the tampon.
  • We use dissolving stitches that don’t need to remove.
  • In the first days after the operation, you can wash your hair without getting your face wet.

We recommend that you gradually resume your pre-surgery exercise routine. 1 week after the surgery, you can choose 25% of the previous exercise and its intensity. It is okay to exercise 50% of the time 2 weeks after the surgery and 75% of the last routine practice and passion 3 weeks after the surgery. You can return to your exercise routine after 6 weeks.

Thanks to our surgeons’ artistry, experience, and attention to detail, patients of all ethnicities and backgrounds can restore their nasal symmetry, shape, and position, improving their overall appearance and self-confidence.

The results of ethnic rhinoplasty surgery are generally as good as the results of traditional rhinoplasty. Thanks to the techniques described above, surgeons can always make a nose appear flatter, more prolonged, thinner, or, as the patient wishes, within certain limits. Female ethnic rhinoplasty can make an ethnic nose look more classic and feminine.
