What Makes African American Rhinoplasty Unique?

ethnic rhinoplasty before and afterRhinoplasty, or nose job, is the most popular cosmetic procedure for African American patients. With its increase in popularity, it is important for patients to remember that the African American rhinoplasty presents unique considerations, therefore, should be performed by an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. As a Beverly Hills trained rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Jonathan Kulbersh has spent a great amount of time learning the best techniques for performing the African American rhinoplasty in Charlotte.

African American Rhinoplasty Qualities

Every person has a unique nose, which is why each rhinoplasty is tailored to the individual patient. There are unique characteristics that tend to be present in the African American nose. During the surgery, Dr. Kulbersh strives to make the desired aesthetic changes while still preserving and maintaining ethnic characteristics.  Some of the common characteristics that may be present in the African American nose include:

  • Thick nasal skin

  • Shorter nasal bone

  • Rounded nasal tip

  • Wide nostrils

  • Weak nasal cartilage

  • Small nose from profile view

These features are not common in Caucasian noses, therefore common surgical techniques used in Caucasian noses would not be appropriate in African American noses.  We understand these points and utilize a different set of techniques during an African American rhinoplasty. For instance, a patient seeking African American rhinoplasty with a short nasal bone is likely to need additional supportive grafts to support the nose and decrease the risk of collapse years later.

During the patient’s consultation, we will discuss your goals and create a customized plan to give you the nose that brings balance to your face. Some of the most common goals of patients seeking African American rhinoplasty are:

  • Narrower nostrils

  • Improved tip definition

  • Increase size from profile view

  • Correct drooping tip

  • Balanced appearance

With extensive training and experience in performing African American rhinoplasty, Dr. Kulbersh can bring a symmetrical, balanced appearance to your nose while maintaining important characteristics of your cultural identity.
