Middle Eastern Nose Job Before and After
I had wanted a rhinoplasty for over ten years and had a handful of consultations with other cosmetic surgeons by the time I walked into Dr. Kulbersh’s office at CFP. After my consultation I finally felt comfortable enough to schedule the procedure! Dr. Kulbersh took the time to truly understand what I wanted and kept me informed every step of the way. The facility is beautiful and clean. And the staff is amiable and professional. I underwent surgery in November and have had 2 or 3 follow-up appointments since. I would absolutely recommend CFP to anyone.
Dr. Kulbersh is the double board-certified facial plastic surgeon that heads up Carolina Facial Plastics. He trained under world-renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif in Beverly Hills, where he studied a wide range of rhinoplasty techniques. His goal for all types of ethnic rhinoplasty is to create natural improvement in the shape and size of the nose while preserving the patient’s heritage.
Dr. Kulbersh performs all of his surgeries at his private and accredited Fairview Surgical Suites. Patients may also choose to spend some of their recovery time at Fairview Recovery Retreat, a luxurious center where patients receive round-the-clock nursing care in a luxurious, resort-like setting.
Patients may have a variety of reasons for pursuing Middle Eastern rhinoplasty, including:
- Dorsal hump
- Droopy tip
- Hanging columella
- Bulbous tip
Armenian, Arab, Persian, Lebanese, or Iranian noses may have large profiles. They also commonly have a downward-sloping curvature of the bridge. It’s typical that they also have nasal tip issues, including a bulbous or hanging tip.
Yara, Arabic, Turkish, and noses commonly have thicker skin and excess fatty tissue. They also can typically have a long or high bridge. Nasal humps and wide bones may also be issues patients wish to resolve. Tip issues are common as well, including having a droopy tip or imbalanced nostrils.
Dr. Kulbersh can address all of these concerns, altering the nose shape, size, and profile to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance with respect to a patient’s ethnicity.
If you’re in good health and wish to improve your nasal bridge or tip with surgery, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. Having a positive outlook and realistic expectations is also vital to having a successful experience. Female patients over the age of 15 and male patients over 16 typically have the emotional maturity and facial development to undergo nose surgery.

Frequently asked questions
Middle Eastern rhinoplasty addresses the unique nasal features that are typical to people of Middle Eastern heritage. This procedure creates a more symmetrical look for patients, balancing the proportionality of all the facial features for a more harmonious look overall.
Depending on your unique situation, you may have an open or closed surgical procedure.
An open procedure, also known as an external rhinoplasty, involves a small incision in the columella which separates the nostrils. Once healed, the scar left behind is nearly invisible. By opening the tip, Dr. Kulbersh can access bone, cartilage, and tissue easily. This allows him to alter nasal features without compromising the structural components of the nose.
A closed procedure, also known as endonasal rhinoplasty, involves incisions that are limited to the inside of the nostrils. While there is no external scarring after this procedure, it limits access to the nasal structure and is typically restricted to patients requiring less extensive correction.
Patients usually return to work and other activities within 1-2 weeks. After four to six weeks have passed, most patients can return to strenuous activities without complications. Patients may experience some residual swelling for up to one full year, but it should not significantly impact your results.
When he performs an open procedure, Dr. Kulbersh places incisions at the base of the nose and uses meticulous suturing techniques so the scar is nearly invisible once it heals fully.
Patients will be asleep during the procedure due to anesthesia, so they won’t experience any pain. Dr. Kulbersh prescribes medication for the first days of recovery to make patients as comfortable as possible at the beginning of the healing process.
