In Orange County and Southern California, the ethnic rhinoplasty procedure is one of the most commonly requested facial plastic surgery. Also known as reduction rhinoplasty, this rhinoplasty aims to reduce the size of a person’s nose. However, while most facial plastic surgeons see ethnicity as something to be worked against, Dr. Kevin Sadati recognizes the importance of a person’s ethnicity when performing an ethnic rhinoplasty procedure.
While many people might prefer to reduce the size of their nose or to eliminate a bump on their nasal bridge, that doesn’t necessarily mean they wish to eliminate all of their ethnic features. Dr. Kevin Sadati works with patients to enhance the beauty of their natural ethnic features while still giving them the nose that they desire. This is an important distinction to make when performing an ethnic rhinoplasty procedure.
For instance, a person of Middle Eastern descent (Persian, Arabic, and Indian), Hispanic, or Greek individual will not look natural if they are given a Caucasian-shaped nose that has a scoped dorsum. In this situation, Dr. Sadati would remove a hump or reduce the overall size of the nose, while still maintaining the straight dorsum that is more congruous with the person’s natural facial features. This enhances the look of a person’s face and the beauty of their Middle Eastern features, and does not attempt to turn them into something that they are not.
This procedure can improve overall facial balance as well as a person’s self confidence, but it is important that no matter what your ethnicity — be it Asian, Caucasian, Middle Eastern or African — your natural genetics are taken into account. This will ensure that in the end, you have a nose that is aesthetically pleasing but also highlights the natural features of your face. A person’s nose is a focal point on their face, and it is important that it reflects a person’s natural beauty as well as his or her personality. This procedure allows a patient to have control over their personal identity without giving up a significant part of their heritage and appearance, which is why it is such a popular choice when it comes to cosmetic surgery.
