Ethnic Rhinoplasty

What is ethnic rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to alter the form and improve the function of the nose. Ethnic rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty that takes into consideration the nuanced differences among ethnicities.

You might consider ethnic rhinoplasty if you have injuries or structural issues in your nose that affect your breathing. Ethnic rhinoplasty can also address the aesthetic appearance of your nose if you’re unhappy with its size or shape.

Why is experience important in ethnic rhinoplasty?

As an experienced African American plastic surgeon, Dr. Sokoya has a unique set of skills and training that helps him achieve optimal, natural-looking results. He takes an individualized approach to rhinoplasty for the ethnic nose that focuses on preserving the authentic features of a person’s ethnicity.

Ethnic sensitivity is not only important in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery but also in the overall approach to patient care. As the standards of beauty are unique from culture to culture, working with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Sokoya ensures your unique needs are understood and surpassed.

What can I expect during my consultation for ethnic rhinoplasty?

During your initial consultation for ethnic rhinoplasty, Dr. Sokoya spends time assessing the features of your nose, including its size and shape, its function, the thickness of your skin, and the resiliency of your nasal bones and cartilage.

Dr. Sokoya also evaluates your unique skin color and texture to create your surgical plan because darker skin is at a higher risk for keloid scarring and hyperpigmentation following surgery. He uses specialized surgical techniques to minimize your scarring risk and also offers medically prescribed skin care products to further assist in scar reduction and the healing of your skin.

Dr. Sokoya offers a wide range of skills and expertise in the treatment of facial issues to his patients, no matter their background. He works closely with you to design a surgical plan that helps you achieve your aesthetic goals and optimize the function of your nasal structures.
