WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
AFRICAN AMERICAN RHINOPLASTY PROCEDURE
It normally takes about two weeks for the patient to look “socially presentable” and resume their daily activities after a nose job, although they are technically able to return to work within a week.

This requires regular follow-up appointments, which will allow him to observe and evaluate your healing progress and secure the integrity of your final results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is it different from regular rhinoplasty?
African American rhinoplasty differs from traditional rhinoplasty in that it is designed to accentuate the unique features found in African American facial structure. This structure typically includes the nasal shape of wide nostrils, a low nasal bridge, and minimal projection of the nasal tip. Under the artistic eye of your surgeon, these features will be accentuated and enhanced to give you your desired appearance, while producing a natural looking result.
Are all plastic surgeons qualified to perform African American rhinoplasty?
While all plastic surgeons are qualified to perform this procedure, it’s best to find a trusted surgeon that specializes in the type you wish to have performed. Mastering African American rhinoplasty requires skill and practice to produce a natural looking result, as every facial structure is unique. Your plastic surgeon should be able to provide you with examples of their previous work on patients with a similar facial structure and shape to yours. When choosing your plastic surgeon, consider their previous work and attention to detail, especially on previous African American rhinoplasty procedures.
