Hispanic Woman Has Nasal Hump Smoothed with Rhinoplasty*

Procedure Details

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 Hispanic 25 year-old wanted her nasal hump removed to help achieve an overall improved appearance. Due to past injuries she had difficulty breathing. Following a rhinoplasty and septoplasty to fix her deviated septum, the patient is thrilled with the new look of her nose--and her breathing is much improved! She is pleased that her nasal hump was removed and that her nose is in proportion with her facial anatomy, while still remaining consistent with her ethnicity.

Hispanic Rhinoplasty Success

With Rhinoplasty surgery, the best facial plastic surgeons like Dr. Kridel take into consideration the patient's facial structure, goal for surgery and their ethnicity. There is not one standard nose for Hispanic Rhinoplasty or any other specific ethnic group. For this 25 year old Hispanic patient, she wanted removal of her nasal hump and a slightly more refined nose that was consistent with her overall shape of her face. The post-op Hispanic Rhinoplasty result shows a newly shaped nose that looks natural, as though the patient was born with it. The septum was deviated and the turbinates enlarged, so Septoplasty and Inferior Turbinate Surgery corrected them which resulted in the patient being able to breathe freely once again.
