How does ethnic rhinoplasty differ?
Breaking down everything you need to know about ethnic rhinoplasty with nose surgeons in Chicago.
What is ethnic rhinoplasty
An ethnic rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty procedure performed on a patient who is of an ethnic background in relation to the majority in their community.
Regardless of what ethnicity you are, rhinoplasty is used to shape the nose into something more cosmetically more desirable for the patient or improve breathing quality. Dr. Gutowski of Chicago Cosmetic Institute specifically takes your needs and considerations about your nose into account and performs a nasal surgery that can vary based on many different factors. One of these factors can be your ethnicity. The ethnicity of the patient can play a big factor in any facial plastic surgery procedure.
The term ethnic rhinoplasty or ethnic nose job are used in America mainly to describe rhinoplasty as it relates to African-American, Hispanic, Asian, Indian, or otherwise Non-Caucasian noses.
Keep in mind that the term “ethnic” changes depending on where you are in the world. We are only speaking for Chicago and America in general.

Why is ethnic rhinoplasty different from regular rhinoplasty
Different ethnicities of people want different appearances and are prone to different features of the nose that others aren’t. This doesn’t just go for the nose it goes for every structure of the body. Knowing the different types of nasal passages and skin helps us perform a more specialized procedure and ensure better results.
To give you a real-life example, an Asian patient may come into Chicago cosmetic institute looking for a rhinoplasty procedure that will allow building up of the bridge of the nose. Someone of Middle Eastern dissent could come in looking for ra eduction of the bridge or dorsal hump of the nose. In both situations, the patients would be looking for a correction that is common of their race. The difference is really come in based on the place that the person comes from and their unique facial features. It’s not always related to their ethnicity, but it plays a factor.
Why you want ethnic rhinoplasty
