Ethnic Rhinoplasty

The main difference between an ethnic rhinoplasty and a, “Caucasian rhinoplasty” is that an ethnic rhinoplasty focus on nasal characteristics that are unique to certain ethnicities. The term ethnic rhinoplasty, therefore, is just a way of denoting that your surgery will be designed to address these unique characteristics. A Caucasian rhinoplasty, meanwhile, typically serves the interest of those an European descent.

No two patients have the exact same facial framework, Still, it is true that your race can directly affect the look of your nasal tip, can make you prone to developing a hump or bump, and can even have a determining factor in the size and width of your nasal base. Dr. Morin understands that each culture has distinct characteristics as well as unique ideas of beauty. These standards guide him in shaping your new nose, so that the results of your ethnic rhinoplasty can be as natural as possible while keeping your individual and cultural preferences as the priority of the surgery.
