Patients with various ethnic backgrounds often want to alter a genetic facial feature, most commonly their nose. However, having a Rhinoplasty does not have to mean that the surgeon has to take away all sense of ethnicity. Every nose is different and Dr. Kridel consults with each patient to determine the amount of nasal reshaping that is consistent with their facial structure and their goals for surgery, while maintaining a natural appearance consistent with their ethnicity. This 44 yr old patient from another country wanted to improve her ability to breathe as well as the appearance of her nose. Examination by Dr. Kridel showed a slightly over projected nose with a prominent dorsal hump and underrotated tip. She was thrilled with the results, and after just 3 months as seen in the post-op photos, her new nose looked smaller as desired, but still consistent with her ethnicity.
