Ethnic rhinoplasty is when Dr. Bryant refines the shape and size of the nose without detracting from or erasing their ethnic identity. Different ethnicities often share special nasal characteristics, including the width of the bridge of the nose, nostril shape and size, nasal projection, nasal tip shape, and others. These unique qualities are a part of the beauty and heritage of your facial features. Dr. Bryant achieves nuanced, beautiful results without compromising the integrity of the characteristics that speak to your heritage, be it Indian, Latino, Middle Eastern, African-American, or others.

What happens during the ethnic rhinoplasty surgical procedure?

The ethnic rhinoplasty surgical procedure is similar to that of the traditional rhinoplasty, using the techniques of open or closed rhinoplasty.

Open Rhinoplasty 

The incision is made at the base of the nostrils, outside of the nose. Using this technique, Dr. Bryant can lift the upper flap of your nose in order to make structural changes to the nasal cartilage and bones. This technique is required for more significant nasal changes and enhancements.

Closed Rhinoplasty 

The incisions are made within the nostrils, resulting in no visible scarring of any kind.This technique is ideal for more subtle nasal chances. 

Wherever the location of the incisions, Dr. Bryant is extremely precise, ensuring there is no scarring at all, or that scars visible on the outside of the nose are nearly imperceptible.

Recovery after ethnic rhinoplasty

After your ethnic rhinoplasty, there will be swelling and bruising, including discoloration under the eyes for up to 3-4 weeks. Cold compresses and anti-inflammatory medications can be helpful in relieving these effects. Dr. Bryant will have follow-up appointments during the first several weeks to ensure your incisions are healing well and the healing process is going to plan.

Sleep with your head elevated for two weeks following the procedure. Many patients can return to sedentary work after this time, using makeup to help with the bruising. Wait 4-6 weeks or more to return to exercise, with the go ahead from Dr. Bryant.

Your nose will continue to heal and settle over the following year or more.
