Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills & Los Angeles
Middle Eastern rhinoplasty is a challenging but exciting medical procedure. The pitfall that some well-intentioned experts fail to avoid is “racial incongruity,” which occurs when a surgeon tries to sculpt a Middle Easterner’s nose into some idealized version of the “Caucasian nose.” The result is not natural-looking, and does a disservice to patients who want to look better but shouldn’t have to buy into some “universal standard of beauty.” There are plenty of worthwhile enhancements that can be performed without erasing the distinct ethnic features of a patient’s face. The key pillars of successful Middle Eastern rhinoplasty are harmony and symmetry. That so-called “triangle of beauty” around the patient’s nose must blend seamlessly into the rest of the patient’s facial structure, and that requires an “ethno-sensitive” approach.
At the same time, while there are certain commonalities found amongst people with Middle Eastern ancestry, an accomplished plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills will equally take into account the nasal and facial features unique to each individual. Understanding the range of generally shared characteristics can be a good initial guide for Middle Eastern rhinoplasty, but high-quality plastic surgery is as much an art as it is a science, and each person’s face is an original canvas unto itself.
