Nose Reshaping Surgery in South Florida

Ethnic rhinoplasty is a broad general term for nose surgery performed on individuals of non-Caucasian descent. In many cases, the goal of the procedure is to improve the appearance and function of the nose while preserving the distinct features of a person’s heritage. Specifically, the ethnic rhinoplasty category includes:

  • Middle Eastern rhinoplasty
  • Asian rhinoplasty
  • African American rhinoplasty
  • Hispanic rhinoplasty

South Florida Facial Plastic Surgery for Authentic, Nuanced Beauty

Our board-certified plastic surgeons understand that each person is different, and we custom tailor every procedure, every time. We never follow a one-size-fits-all approach. In ethnic rhinoplasty and all other surgeries, modifications are made to fit your specific procedure to you. Our boutique practice at South Florida Facial Plastic Surgery is established to deliver a high level of patient care and intimate service.

What is the Procedure?

Bone and cartilage are restructured through incisions to reshape the nose and correct any breathing problems. The skin is re-draped over the new nasal structures and the incisions are closed. The extent of the procedure will reflect the changes needed, which could require cartilage grafting in some cases.

How Much Downtime is Required for Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

Ethnic rhinoplasty is done on an outpatient basis, but it is not a minor procedure. You will need to take a week off work and avoid strenuous activity in accordance with the doctor’s instructions. The surgery may be performed under general anesthesia, with the techniques that produce the best possible results.

We Monitor Your Recovery Closely. What is the Recovery Time After an Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

The recovery after any rhinoplasty will require some patience. Initially, it is normal to expect some swelling and bruising. As every procedure is tailored to match the needs of the individual, the extent of the procedure will vary, and so will the recovery. Generally, you can expect to feel you look well enough to return to your usual activities within two to three weeks. However, residual swelling will take several months to fade away.

The Rules for Speedy Healing

During your recovery, you will need to sleep on your back, so the altered nose structure is not subjected to any pressure. Do not lift anything heavy for several days and avoid bending over. Take gentle walks every day to stimulate blood circulation. Avoid all vigorous physical activities until our surgeon gives you permission, which is generally after three to four weeks.

As your nose has been reshaped, it is imperative that you avoid any risk of impact, such as playing sports or roughhousing with children or pets. You will have full aftercare instructions, and our team at South Florida Facial Plastic Surgery is always available to answer your questions.
