Many people who wish to have a nose job done might think that there is only one general procedure option available to them. However, it’s important that Orange County residents realize there are more specialized procedures available. One of those procedures is the ethnic rhinoplasty, which aims to provide patients with a new nose that complements their natural ethnic features. Dr. Kevin Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon who operates out of a practice in Newport Beach has been performing these procedures for more than a decade.
In the past, patients of ethnic descent have avoided having cosmetic surgeries. Many felt that the surgeons did not put a priority on ethnic identity, and would create a nose that did not have any distinct features that complemented their culture. In fact, there were surgeons that would take any nose and turn it into a nose better suited for a Caucasian patient, not acknowledging the importance of the patient’s ethnicity and identity. Recognizing this fact, Dr. Sadati made it his personal mission to provide ethnic patients with a nose that was more beautiful, but also complemented their ethnic features. His goal is to create a natural-looking nose for the patient, depending on his or her ethnicity.
Throughout the course of his 10-year career, Dr. Sadati has worked on patients of many different ethnicities and cultures. Some of the ethnicities that he specializes in include Middle Eastern, African, Asian, Greek and Hispanic. He has made it a priority to study the anatomy of these different cultures and to learn how to craft a beautiful nose that respects their genetic traits.
For instance, the average person of Middle Eastern descent will have a straight dorsum nose. Dr. Sadati can decrease the size of a patient’s nose while still maintaining the straight dorsum that is most common in that culture. A less experienced surgeon might provide the patient with a scoped dorsum simply because that is what the surgeon is used to. However, a scoped dorsum is typically found on a Caucasian person. For Dr. Sadati, the goal is to enhance a person’s natural ethnic features — he does not want to eliminate them or make them appear to be without any sort of ethnic identity.
Dr. Sadati has a great respect for every patient, their culture, their history and their personal desires. He wants to make sure that all patients looking to have an ethnic rhinoplasty performed gets the results that they want. Whether they are looking to reduce the size of their nose or remove a hump on their nasal bridge, Dr. Sadati will work to achieve that goal without eliminating their important ethnic features. Patients can trust Dr. Sadati to get the job done right because he has been performing ethnic rhinoplasties for more than a decade, and he has experience working with patients of all different ethnicities.
