Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Ethnic rhinoplasty is a procedure that aims to create aesthetic or functional improvements to the nose while meticulously preserving your unique ethnic facial characteristics. Each ethnicity possesses distinct facial traits to evaluate carefully when planning nose surgery. This specialized rhinoplasty procedure is performed with ultimate care, as it must preserve the attractive qualities of your background so that the results appear natural and balanced.

SHOULD I HAVE AN ETHNIC RHINOPLASTY?

You may choose to undergo ethnic rhinoplasty to revise certain aspects of the nose that contribute to an unbalanced facial appearance. The structural and aesthetic problems treated include a pronounced hump, a bulbous nasal tip, flared nostrils, or any element that makes your nose appear too large or small for your face or draws too much attention from your other features. Aside from cosmetic refinement, an ethnic rhinoplasty can also address any structural abnormalities that impede normal nasal function.

VIRTUAL CONSULTATIONS FOR ETHNIC RHINOPLASTY

WHAT IS THE ETHNIC RHINOPLASTY PROCEDURE?

Many people from similar backgrounds share the same nose characteristics and seek subtle alterations. Each ethnic group is different and ethnic rhinoplasty involves an array of techniques to resolve the common concerns of each ethnicity. Dr. Sedgh will tailor the procedure to take these special considerations into account. In doing so, he can achieve excellent symmetry and balance for your ethnic facial features—rather than erasing them. The result is far more attractive, enhancing your natural features.

INCISIONS

While there are specific augmentation techniques employed in a custom ethnic rhinoplasty, the incision approaches to be used are similar across all patients and all types of rhinoplasty procedures. Dr. Sedgh may use either the closed (endonasal) or the open (external) approach to perform an ethnic rhinoplasty, depending on the techniques to be used or the extent of the alterations required.

Open Rhinoplasty

For patients who require significant or more complex enhancements, an open approach is appropriate. This approach involves a small incision along the tissue that separates the nostrils and provides optimum access to the underlying nose structure. Due to enhanced visibility, this approach allows Dr. Sedgh to perform the necessary alterations with maximum precision and accuracy.

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is advisable for patients that only need minor adjustments. It produces no external scarring as it uses short and precise incisions hidden inside the nostrils. 

Implants or cartilage grafts may also be used to augment the nasal bridge or tip.

ARTISTRY AND ADVANCED SURGICAL TECHNIQUES: DR. SEDGH

Dr. Sedgh executes each surgery with artistry and meticulous techniques to ensure he achieves optimum aesthetic results while protecting the structural integrity of the nose.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME FROM AN ETHNIC RHINOPLASTY?

Rhinoplasty, in most cases, is performed as an outpatient procedure. After the surgery, you may experience localized swelling, bruising, discomfort, and some minor pain. To help manage these side effects and give you a more pleasant recovery, Dr. Sedgh will provide explicit aftercare instructions and medications, so you are comfortable and heal quickly.

DOWNTIME

The downtime varies, but you can expect to return to your usual activities and look “socially presentable” within two to three weeks following surgery.

A COMMITMENT TO PATIENT CARE

Dr. Sedgh’s commitment to providing superior personal care goes beyond performing your nose surgery with the latest techniques for the results you envision.

His postoperative routine is thorough and ongoing. Upon completion of your nose surgery, Dr. Sedgh will closely monitor your recovery through frequently scheduled follow-up appointments. In between these appointments, he also makes it a point to personally check up on you through a quick phone call or video conference, allowing him to continually evaluate your healing progress and guide you through your recovery from day one up to a year later.

COMFORT & TRANSPARENCY FROM START TO FINISH

When under the care of Dr. Sedgh, you will feel comfortable, cared for, and you will understand every aspect of your upcoming treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical. His approach to facial enhancement is to achieve a refreshed, natural look – with transparency, honesty, and the highest level of ethical treatment, from start to finish.
