Ethnic Rhinoplasty Beverly Hills
Since rhinoplasty is one of the most common procedures, we see patients of all backgrounds who seek help in improving their appearance. ‘Ethnic Rhinoplasty’ is not our preferred term because it lumps a bunch of different ethnicities into one term. There is no cookie-cutter rhinoplasty for every ethnicity so we look at every rhinoplasty as an individual surgery and tailor it to the patient specific goals. We perform rhinoplasty on patients with tens of backgrounds from across Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
There are some nose features that are common in certain ethnicities. Some groups tend to have a flat nose, while others tend to have large nose. Some are wide while others are narrow and pinched. It takes a bit of different technique to deal with each type of nose. What works to make a large nose smaller will not work for projecting and augmenting an Asian or African American nose and vice versa.
Although the principles of the procedure remain the same, Dr. Jumaily is careful to pay attention to the nuances of rhinoplasty in our Asian, African, Hispanic and Middle Eastern patients. We do not like to create the same nose for every patient. We encourage people to embrace their diversity when discussing their desired changes to their nose.
Dr. Jumaily maintains the natural beauty of your ethnicity to achieve the best facial harmony and balance.

Can African American Rhinoplasty Be done to maintain a Nautral Ethnic Look?For African american noses, the strategy is to add to the nose. We often uses cartilage obtained from ears or ribs to build up the bridge, and lengthen and refine the tip. It has to be done to look natural. The operated on look is not desired and does not look beautiful. There are surgeons who use a split calverial bone grafts for augmentation but rib cartilage is more common. Even using cartilage, there are several techniques to place it. A consultation is very helpful in communicating your goals.
How Big of a Problem is Keloid Scarring with Rhinoplasty Surgery?Patients with darker skin tones are more likely to get keloids. Keloids tend to be more common on specific parts of the body such as the ear and chest. While keloids on the nose are possible they are much less common on the nose after rhinoplasty even in patients who do have a keloid history. The risk is not zero but it’s low.
How to Get a Smaller African American Nose Tip?Tip definition and refinement is a common goal of many African American patients. The tip and bridge are both augmented using cartilage grafts and suturing techniques that will create more projection and definition in the tip. A well projected and defined tip can counteract the thick skin which is often encountered in these cases and also give the appearance of a small sharper nose.
