Non Caucasian Ethnic Rhinoplasty...what is unique? 


Noses come in different shapes and sizes......that is what makes nasal surgery one of the most challenging cosmetic procedure performed by plastic surgeons.  Your nose is a unique aesthetic feature of your face. It defines your ethnicity and individuality.  Dr. Boahene has a recognized expertise  in rhinoplasty of the non-Caucasian nose - African, African American, persian, Hispanic, Asian, Caribbean and Middle Eastern. Conscious of scarring and non-Caucasian variations, Dr. Boahene employs techniques and approaches to non-Caucasian rhinoplasty that results in an enhanced facial balance without the lost of characteristic ethnic features.


 Trends in ethnic sensitive rhinoplasty



Ethinic sensitive rhinoplasty is a term used by Dr. Boahene to describe nasal refinement that is ethnically congruent. The changes are clear yet not harsh. The result is  a  natural transformation that preserves the patient's ethnic features. Ethnic sensitive rhinoplasty focuses on identifying and preserving nasal features that are pleasing while refining features that are out of balance.  From his experience performing many rhinoplasties on individuals from around the globe, Dr. Boahene has developed and refined techniques that he customizes for each patient. 


Common features of the ethnic sensitive rhinoplasyt include:


E    Reshaping the wide nostrils


Narrowing the broad nose


Building up the flat nose


Refining the nasal tip


Hump reduction


Correcting  widening of the nose when smiling


Creating a photogenic nose


Correction or the droopy nasal tip


Non-operated result


Preserving ethnic features while creating visible changes that fits the rest of the face


Thick skin debulking
