Ethnic Rhinoplasty


Or call: 405-546-2700

While a person may want to change certain aspects of their nose for a more attractive appearance or improved breathing, they may also worry about losing certain features that represent their culture, heritage, and ethnicity.

An ethnic rhinoplasty strives to make cosmetic or medical adjustments to the nose while preserving the features the patient wants to keep.

At Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, the plastic surgeons have extensive experience and training in nose surgeries that allows them to improve the nose while keeping the nuances of their cultural identity for ideal results.

Anatomical Differences

One of the most significant differences among different ethnicities is the nose. The structures of the nose are different between Caucasians, Hispanics, African Americans, Middle Easterners and Asians.

It’s important for patients to find a cosmetic surgeon that understands the patient’s cultural differences and will create beautifully balanced, aesthetic results without compromising their ethnicity.

Dr. Nuveen is absolutely outstanding!!! Never had a doctor to care half as much as he does!! ... I love my new nose!!!! I want to thank to the whole team to, I give you guys a 10 out of 10!!!!!!! Thank youuuuuu!!!


African American Rhinoplasty

The typical shape of an African American nose includes an increased width, definition loss, and lack of projection. Most cosmetic surgeons are asked to build dorsal height, define the nasal tip through thick skin and create a more symmetrical appearance.

However, these requests are challenging to achieve because of an African American’s anatomy and heterogeneity.

Hispanic Rhinoplasty

Cosmetic surgeons have mastered surgical techniques for Hispanic rhinoplasty. Most patients seek a narrowing or augmenting of the nasal dorsum, nasal tip definition, nasal rotation and an increase in projection. A highly skilled cosmetic surgeon knows how to achieve the patient’s desired results while maintaining Hispanics’ multiethnic origin and migration patterns.

The staff is very friendly and Dr Nuveene is excellent. They explain everything and if something isn't right they fix it for you. I'd recommend them and have to my friends.


During/After Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery

As a complex procedure, ethnic rhinoplasty is a 1-to-2-hour, outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. Patients will need to wear a nose splint during the recovery process to help control bruising and swelling around the eyes and nose.

Patients can expect final results a full year after surgery.

    Ethnic Rhinoplasty FAQs

    Will I look different?

    Yes, ethnic rhinoplasty will alter a patient’s facial appearance. However, a vastly experienced cosmetic surgeon uses surgical techniques to create a natural appearance that maintains the patient’s cultural and ethnic features that make them happy.

    Break my nose?

    Even though breaking the nose is a common technique, it is not required. For some patients, a fracture allows the surgeon to perform certain functions and techniques that may not be accessible without a fracture.

    Nasal Packing?

    Surgeons use nasal packing to help control bleeding. Complex surgeries, like ethnic rhinoplasty, may cause more bleeding than normal.

    Selecting the right surgeon?

    It’s crucial for patients to choose an ethnic rhinoplasty specialist with the skill and experience to perform a complex procedure. The ideal surgeon should have a full understanding of ethnic and cultural differences in the anatomy of the nose. Higher levels of practice increase the chances of better surgical results.
