Dr.Kassir has performed ethnic rhinoplasties on patients from over 120 countries, making him an international expert on the many nose shapes associated with different ethnic groups. Triple-board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr.Ramtin Kassir celebrates 22+ years of performing ethnic rhinoplasties on patients who visit him from around the world in his New Jersey and New York City offices.

To build the nose during the rhinoplasty operation, Dr.Kassir prefers to utilize your own body's natural cartilage rather than implants (like silicone, Gore-Tex or even Medpore) as foreign materials have a propensity to become infected or may be displaced pushed from the nose (extruded) within the years after operation. Cultural nose job techniques may be utilized to enhance the visual appeal of both African-American, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and Asian noses, while still respecting and keeping the authentic look from the individual's cultural heritage. Typical techniques utilized in ethnic rhinoplasty contain augmentation (building up) of a flat nasal bridge, both extending and lengthening a broad and brief nasal tip, as well as narrowing down the bottom of the tip. This can be different than in Caucasian noses in which rhinoplasty frequently eliminates bone and cartilage since the nose is long, large and over-projected.

What is usually done in an Indian Rhinoplasty?

An ill-defined nose would be the most frequently encountered difficulty in clinical practice. These noses normally possess a extensive OCF, wide lobule and suggestion and lack projection. It's not hard to believe that the broadness is evident, due to absence of projection. Actually in most situations it's real, and such noses have to be substituted by osteotomies and AWR. Originally the surgeons used to adhere to the shut or intranasal method for rectal osteotomy, but have shifted to external percutaneous procedure, which provides greater control and is a lot simpler to execute. It's also much superior to bring a transverse osteotomy in the degree of lateral canthi, instead of doing a greenstick out-fracture. Stacked cartilage grafts create natural and soft results. Problems of disease, resorption and therefore are nearly non-existent. Wrapping these grafts in fascia isn't necessary in Indian individuals, since the sharp borders don't show through the skin that is thicker. In reality, definition is given by the advantages. Curved conchal cartilage could be flexed by scoring on the back side. Costal cartilage stipulates the abundant quantity needed in cleft lip gloss. Warping of this costal cartilage could be prevented by maintaining the perichondrium and dividing it just across the curvature (the side). The sole example of warping in our individual was a result of unfamiliarity with method of grading and absence of comprehension of this Gibson's principle. In Indian context the majority of the patients find correction of apparent deformities. The normal deformity is a wide, nonprojecting nose. Great results can be acquired by familiarity with all those 3 methods. The classical decrease rhinoplasty explained in western literature might not be completely implemented at the Indian context. The normal Indian nose eliminates projection and thus requires augmentation more frequently than decrease. Some noses might even require reduction at the same area and augmentation in the opposite. Consequently cartilage grafting is also an essential component of Indian rhinoplasty and now's surgeon has to be well versed with all the procedure and usage of cartilage grafts.

What can be done for an asian rhinoplasty?

Correction of this nose that is brief is easily the section in a rhinoplasty. It's much harder to perform rhinoplasties for Asians compared to Caucasians as a result of skin soft tissue envelope and poorer cartilaginous frameworks. This is why having an experienced plastic surgeon is essential. Expansion grafts can concomitantly and efficiently right a nose. On the other hand, the total quantity of the septal cartilage isn't adequate as a supply for your graft frequently; hence, the authors invented a septal integration graft where a septal cartilage graft has been adjusted into the caudal septum (columellar L-strut) within an end-to-end place to conserve a sum of the septal cartilage for correction of this brief nose. A integration graft program led to lengthening of the nose. Additionally, the columellar labial angle and the columella have been also enhanced. Nguyen, A. H. (2015). Cosmetic Asian Rhinoplasty.

What can be done for middle eastern rhinoplasty?

The cultural look of this Middle Eastern nose is characterized by numerous exceptional visual features, especially a large radix, broad overprojecting dorsum, along with an abysmal hanging nasal tip. These external attributes represent different structural properties of this osseo-cartilaginous nasal frame and skin-soft tissue reduction in sufferers of Middle Eastern extraction. The aim, and the greatest challenge, of rhinoplasty on Middle Eastern patients is to attain balanced aesthetic refinement, while preventing surgical westernization. Thorough comprehension of the cultural visual stability at a Middle Eastern nose significantly assists in maintaining native nasal-facial connections during rhinoplasty on Middle Eastern patients. Esthetic modification of a Middle Eastern nose carries another set of principles and goals in comparison to rhinoplasties on other ethnic patients.
