Conveniently located to serve Beverly Hills
Refine your nose with ethnic rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills to make your facial profile more symmetrical. Aside from the cosmetic considerations of this type of nose job, the functionality of the nose can also be improved.
It is extremely important to seek out Dr. Jeff Jumaily, an experienced double-board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, to perform this specialized procedure.
What Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
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 a 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.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
If you want your nose to better fit your facial profile, then you may be a good candidate for ethnic rhinoplasty. If you want to ensure that your ethnic and cultural features are preserved, this procedure is an ideal option.
Patients who feel that their nasal bridge is too wide or their nasal tip is too broad or bulbous may find a nose job to be quite helpful. It is important to be in good overall health and, ideally, a non-smoker.
Your consultation at Cosmetic Surgery Beverly Hills involves a physical examination of your nose. Dr. Jeff Jumaily will study your ethnic nuances and will develop a unique treatment plan based on your cosmetic and functional goals. You and Dr. Jumaily will also discuss your medical history, including past surgeries and current medications.
The Ethnic Rhinoplasty Procedure
The ethnic rhinoplasty procedure will begin with the administration of anesthesia. Very small incisions will then be created. The location of the incisions will depend on the patient’s unique needs. They may be inside the nostrils or across the columella (the external tissue between the nostrils).
The underlying tissue will then be reshaped to achieve the desired results. After that, the incisions will be closed with sutures, and a nose splint will be applied.
Recovery and Healing
Depending on the technique employed by Dr. Jumaily, your recovery period after your ethnic rhinoplasty will be between two and four weeks. Bruising and swelling will be experienced but should disappear after several days.
Pain can be managed with over-the-counter medications. The splint may be removed after a week, and you may be able to resume your normal activities at this time.
Cost of Ethnic Rhinoplasty
The cost of your ethnic rhinoplasty varies from one patient to another depending on specific ethnicities and nose characteristics. The overall price will reflect the anesthetic and surgical fees.

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.
