With Asian rhinoplasty, Dr. Engineer is careful to respect the differences between Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, and Vietnamese heritage, as well as among other Asian origins, understanding the nuances that define each group. Here, the nostrils may need to be narrowed, while the bridge may need fortification. Dr. Engineer will discuss your options in depth, explaining the technical considerations and anatomical challenges for each surgery.
African American Rhinoplasty
Dr. Engineer will carefully scrutinize the nose to assess its genetic origins and influences in order to craft a treatment plan that will result in natural-looking improvements that suit the patient’s other features and overall appearance. He may perform techniques to address a wide bridge or flared nostrils while potentially incorporating dermal fillers to provide the final touches.
Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty
Many Middle Eastern patients complain of a prominent nasal hump and a drooping tip. Others may be unhappy with an upturned nose or a pinched bridge. Dr. Engineer will have to take into account the best length, size, and projection for the new nose so that it appears blended with the face as a whole. Due to a wide variety of backgrounds, Middle Eastern nose surgery will be among the most customized of Dr. Engineer’s operations.
While there is no typical Hispanic nose per se, Dr. Engineer can help the patient to achieve a look they feel good about while preserving their ethnic background, whether they are Mexican, Columbian, Argentinian, Peruvian, or other nationality. He can use cartilage grafting and liquid rhinoplasty techniques to supplement his conventional approach, improving flat noses, high bridges, and wide nostrils.
