An ethnic rhinoplasty uses special techniques to address concerns of the nose of individuals who are not of western descent in Irvine. It can help to decrease unwanted bony protrusions, decrease the size of the nose or create a more desirably shaped nose in people of Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern or African American descent. Our surgeon here at OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach can address each of these concerns with great skill.
Irvine Ethnic Rhinoplasty Procedure
Dr. Tavousi performs both western and ethnic rhinoplasties for those in and around Irvine. He realizes that those of different cultural heritages have different desires and bone structures than those of western descent do. Therefore, he has perfected techniques, some of which he has lectured on to fellow cosmetic surgeons, for ethnic rhinoplasties. His ART technique is just one example of his unending research in this area.
Those who are thinking about having an Irvine Ethnic Rhinoplasty performed are encouraged to come to the Clinique that serves the entire Orange County area. Dr. Tavoussi provides complete consultations that include an evaluation of the individual’s nose, answers to questions the person may have, a viewing of before and after pictures of those who have undergone the procedure previously and the use of 3D digital computer technology to simulate how the individual will look following surgery.
The surgery requires general anesthesia and is performed as a same-day procedure at the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center. During the procedure, the surgeon will create incisions around the nose before lifting the skin and underlying tissues to provide access to the bones and muscles of the nose. He will then reshape these into a culturally appropriate shape before redraping the skin and suturing the incisions. Of course, Dr. Tavoussi will discuss patient expectations prior to the Irvine plastic surgery to find out what the individual is hoping to attain and whether or not this is possible.
Irvine Ethnic Rhinoplasty – Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center
Follow-up appointments are performed at our Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach where Irvine Ethnic Rhinoplasty patients will have their incisions and postoperative care evaluated. Patients are encouraged to ask any questions they may have and to care for their noses carefully for the first few weeks following surgery. Of course, they will experience some bruising and minor bleeding as well as pain, which can be decreased using the provided prescription pain reliever. Resting and avoiding strenuous activities that could stress the incision sites and the sore nose is encouraged.
