How Does Ethnic Rhinoplasty Work?
Because ethnic rhinoplasty procedures require a higher level of surgical skill, you can expect your surgery to take slightly longer than traditional rhinoplasties. However, ethnic rhinoplasties are done under twilight anesthesia (IV sedation) to keep you comfortable throughout. Rhinoplasties are generally an outpatient procedure allowing you to recover in the comfort of your own home.
Dr. Stein is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He uses his advanced surgical skills, techniques, and artistry to produce natural-looking results each and every time. In most cases, incisions are made either within the inside of the nostrils or well-hidden within the natural creases of your nose. This technique minimizes pain, scarring, and downtime.
Am I a Good Candidate For Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
An ethnic rhinoplasty may be worth considering if you’re bothered by a nose that is too prominent for your liking. While some patients may wish to reduce a bridge on the nose, another may want to soften large nostrils or sculpt the tip of their nose. Whatever your concerns may be, Dr. Stein will work with you to get you the results you want while helping you retain your overall ethnic identity.
The ideal candidate for surgical procedures of any type is an otherwise healthy, non-smoking adult. Prior to your procedure, you may undergo several routine medical exams and blood work to ensure an optimal outcome without complications. Dr. Stein will go over every aspect of your procedure in-depth so you can have realistic expectations about what an ethnic rhinoplasty can do for you.

What Results Will I See?
You’ll likely see some immediate results after your procedure with gradual improvement as any post-surgical swelling subsides. Although the nose can continue to reshape slightly over the course of about a year, most patients see an optimal outcome in just a few weeks. Rhinoplasties are typically a one-time procedure that produces long-lasting results. You’ll be able to tone down severe facial features while maintaining natural-looking outcomes for your specific ethnicity.
