An Irvine Ethnic Rhinoplasty is a perfect fit for someone of non-Caucasian heritage who wants to adjust the shape and size of his or her nose. The ethnic rhinoplasty can repair bumps, crookedness, non-symmetrical shapes and more while keeping the shape of the nose true to the individual’s ethnic culture. Dr. Tavoussi can provide Irvine Ethnic Rhinoplasties for individuals of Middle Eastern, Asian, African American or Hispanic heritage.
Dr. Tavoussi provides ethnic rhinoplasties at the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center. However, a patient’s journey down this road will begin at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in nearby Newport Beach. At this initial appointment, Dr. Tavoussi and the patient can get on the same page, so to speak, and discuss personal concerns and desires related to the shape and size of the nose.
During the Irvine ethnic rhinoplasty, Dr. Tavoussi will make incisions around the base of the nose to lift the skin and underlying tissues away from the bony structure. He will then reshape the bone and some tissues before re-laying the skin and suturing it closed. He tries to hide the incisions as much as possible for a great healing experience.
Patients should be aware that they will not be able to see complete results for a few weeks post-operatively. Even after any dressings are removed, some swelling will remain. However, within a month or two, patients will be able to enjoy their new, traditionally-shaped noses fully.
