What is an Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

Your heritage and ethnic identity are reflected in your facial structure. While every ethnicity has its own standards of beauty, you may not be satisfied with the inherited shape of your nose and ultimately desire a more refined, elegant contour. An Ethnic Rhinoplasty in Austin, or ethnic “nose job”, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance your nasal form and facial structure while preserving the unique beauty of your heritage.

The Role of Ethnicity in Nasal Reshaping Surgery

Standards of beauty vary widely among all cultures. The goal of ethnic rhinoplasty is to achieve facial harmony while complementing one’s inherent and distinct features. Thus, choosing a surgeon who is well-versed in multi-cultural beauty standards and has a vast knowledge of ethnic variations in skin thickness, cartilage, and overall nasal structure is essential. Dr. Givens, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, has extensive experience performing these custom surgeries and is known for her ability to achieve a remarkably natural, balanced, and elegant result.

The Importance of Ethnicity with Dr. Givens

A rhinoplasty procedure is one of the most sought after surgeries world-wide. However, your selection of surgeon should never be made in haste. Not only is Dr. Givens a top female facial plastic surgeon with a reputation for excellence in nasal reshaping procedures, she understands the importance of preserving ethnic identity with surgery. Too many physicians fail to account for the distinct facial attributes of non-Caucasian patients and instead focus on “westernizing” the nose. An ethnic rhinoplasty in Austin with Dr. Givens will enhance your unique, cultural features—not erase them.

What is an Ethnic Rhinoplasty consultation?

The first step to a successful surgical outcome is a one-on-one meeting with Dr. Givens to discuss your treatment goals and expectations.

The goal of surgery is to produce a natural, elegant result that enhances your distinct facial features, harmonizes the nasal structure, and preserves your ethnic heritage. It is important to choose a facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. Givens, who is willing to both understand your aesthetic goals and work to achieve them.

Will my recovery take longer than a Caucasian Rhinoplasty?

Ethnic variations in skin thickness, cartilage, and overall nasal structure may prolong the healing process and recovery time to final result. While the final outcome of your nasal reshaping surgery will take some patience, it is well worth the wait – it can be life-changing. A nose in balance with your other facial features will allow you to feel more confident in your appearance and daily interactions.
