It’s all about your nose. Ethnic rhinoplasty commonly refers to non-Caucasian nose jobs. Just as Caucasians have general similarities in their nasal anatomy and cultural paradigms of beauty, different ethnicities have these same qualities. Dr. Kulbersh identifies the unique goals of each of his patients to create a nose that fits their face. While training and practicing in Beverly Hills with a top rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Kulbersh had many patients of varying ethnicities, as a wide range of ethnic rhinoplasties are commonly performed in Beverly Hills. Dr. Kulbersh has unique techniques for:
- Hispanic rhinoplasty
- African American rhinoplasty
- Asian rhinoplasty
- Middle Eastern rhinoplasty
- Indian rhinoplasty
At Carolina Facial Plastics, it is of utmost importance to us that we provide patients with results that are aesthetically pleasing without diminishing their ethnic origin.

What is an Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
How is Ethnic Identity Preserved During Rhinoplasty?
Previously, it was common for surgeons to perform rhinoplasty surgery on ethnic patients using the same techniques they used for Caucasian patients. However, this approach left ethnic patients with a nose that was not in balance with their other facial features or culture.
Creating an ethnically appropriate nose is critical when performing rhinoplasty on non-Caucasian patients. Dr. Kulbersh takes time during the consultation process to understand the patient’s nasal aesthetic ideals so that he can create a nose that meets their desires.
Additionally, his knowledge of different ethnic facial structures and advanced surgical techniques provides patients with beautiful rhinoplasty results. Dr. Kulbersh does not treat his patients with a “cookie cutter” approach because no two noses are alike, especially in the case of non-Caucasian nose surgery.
Who is a Candidate for Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
Dr. Kulbersh has performed rhinoplasty procedures on countless patients of Hispanic, African American, Middle Eastern and Asian descent. A good candidate for ethnic rhinoplasty is an individual in good health that wants to improve the appearance of their nose.

Q: Will people know I had a nose job?
A: Most people will not be able to tell you have had a rhinoplasty. Many of Dr. Kulbersh’s patients have an improved facial appearance, however their friends and family can’t figure out exactly why. The mark of a good nose job is a beautiful appearance without the new nose being the obvious source of the new look.
Q: Is it harder to make a defined tip during an ethnic rhinoplasty?
A: Rhinoplasty tip correction is common in ethnic patients. The ability to make a defined tip during an ethnic nose job is dependent on the thickness of the nasal skin. If the skin that covers the tip cartilage is thin like a sheet, then you can clearly see the changes made during a nose job. However, many patients that undergo an ethnic rhinoplasty have thick skin. In patients with thick skin, the skin acts like a thick blanket. This thick blanket makes it more difficult to see the changes made to the tip cartilage, thus it limits the ability to define the tip.
Q: How much does ethnic rhinoplasty cost?
A: The cost of ethnic rhinoplasty varies from patient to patient, and depends on the specific nose issues the patient needs corrected. During your consultation with Dr. Kulbersh you will discuss the cost thoroughly.
