In the past, cosmetic surgeons pursued a Westernized approach to nose surgery regardless of the patient’s ethnic background and heritage. Today, plastic surgeons understand that there is a wider range of beauty standards, and they seek to incorporate each patient’s unique traits and idiosyncrasies while simultaneously minimizing aesthetic flaws. Ethnic rhinoplasty helps to balance the nose among the other features, enhancing self-confidence and quality of life.

What is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

With our ethnic rhinoplasty in Denver, Dr. Locketz considers every aspect of the patient’s facial structure and aesthetic tastes in order to create a personalized treatment plan that will accomplish their goals without erasing their unique background and heritage. The surgery will preserve desirable cosmetic traits while correcting concerns such as:

  • A drooping or bulbous nasal tip
  • Overly wide or flared nostrils
  • A pronounced dorsal hump
  • A flattened nasal bridge

How is Ethnic Rhinoplasty Performed?

Dr. Locketz practices a conservative surgical approach that helps to minimize scarring and discomfort while expediting recovery. He may use cartilage grafts to bolster the inner scaffolding of the nose, or he may remove excess cartilage to refine the bridge and the tip. The nostrils can be reduced in size or widened according to the patient’s needs. Dr. Locketz always uses a carefully trained artistic eye to ensure symmetry and proper breathing function are maintained.

Types of Ethnic Rhinoplasty

African American Rhinoplasty

African American nose surgery typically involves reducing a wide nasal tip and correcting the appearance of flared nostrils. Cartilage grafts may be used to enhance a weak nasal tip. Dr. Locketz’s goal is always to create beautiful, natural-looking outcomes that celebrate the patient’s innate beauty and attractiveness.

Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty

Patients of Middle Eastern descent often struggle with long noses and prominent nasal bridges. Dr. Locketz can harmonize and balance the nasal contours to create a nose that is better aligned with the other facial features. For women, a softer, more feminine nasal appearance is achieved, while for men, the profile is improved without sacrificing character or individuality.

Asian Rhinoplasty

Asian patients may request nasal augmentation to bolster a flat bridge. Dr. Locketz can use cartilage grafts to augment the area, creating a nose with improved definition. A depressed nasal tip and overly wide nostrils can also be corrected. Many Asian patients experience improved breathing and sleep after ethnic rhinoplasty with Dr. Locketz.

Latino/Hispanic Rhinoplasty

Patients of Latino/Hispanic origin often request correction of a prominent bridge and a bulbous nasal tip. Dr. Locketz has an in-depth understanding of rhinoplasty and how to create balanced, flattering results without interfering with cultural norms. The gaze is directed to the eyes and the smile rather than the nose, enhancing attractiveness and confidence.

Patient Testimonial
