At Liebertz Plastic Surgery at Yarrow Bay, we recognize and celebrate the rich tapestry of the ethnic backgrounds of our clientele. Every individual possesses a unique beauty shaped by their heritage, and our goal is to enhance, not erase these distinctive features.
What are the differences of ethnic rhinoplasty?
Unique structures: People from different ethnicities often have noses with distinct structures. For instance, African and Afro-Caribbean individuals might have wider nostrils and a broader nasal bridge, whereas many Asian individuals may have a flatter bridge and rounded tip.
Skin thickness: The skin's thickness around the nose can vary. Thicker skin can influence how refined the nose can appear post-surgery, while thinner skin might reveal underlying structures more prominently.
Scar tendencies: Some ethnicities are more prone to keloids or hyperpigmented scars, which require careful incision placement and post-operative care to minimize visible scarring.
