An “ethnic rhinoplasty” is a customized procedure to alter the nose shape of people from various ethnic backgrounds. The goal is to create the most stunning, natural-looking result to enhance the beauty of your natural features – rather than “westernizing” your nose. Every ethnicity has differences in nose structure, skin, bone, and cartilage. Ethnic rhinoplasty is a customized procedure geared to create a more attractive balance and harmony among your features.
Enhance your best features with an ethnic rhinoplasty.
The first step in your ethnic rhinoplasty is to meet with you and discuss the changes you envision for your nose. You will be able to “try on” various changes with a 3D digital image of your face. Dr. Harbison is among the most highly educated facial plastic surgeons in the Omaha area, and your surgery will be customized just for you. With the help of 3D imaging, he will work closely with you to help you have the nose shape that will enhance your entire facial appearance and structure.
The procedure will vary based on the changes that are needed. Cartilage and bone may be reshaped, and in some cases, grafts can add height to the nose bridge. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia at our onsite accredited surgical facility, which is equipped with the most advanced patient health and safety systems. The surgery will require several hours to complete, but you will not be uncomfortable or experience any pain as you will be under anesthesia.
