African America RhinoplastyThe African American nose is unique, and should be treated as such. Specifically, the African American nose is characteristically wide, and is often marked by thick skin. A good, experienced surgeon will understand that patients of different ethnicities require special attention, techniques, and skill. It is for this reason that Dr. Morin has cultivated a distinct approach to modifying the stereotypically “African American” nose in his experience as a rhinoplasty specialist.
What Defines the “African American” Nose?The most common complaint that Dr. Morin hears from candidates of an African American nose job is that their nose is too large for their face, and thus detracts from their other features. The goal of the African American rhinoplasty is two-fold: creating the perfect nasal tip, and creating the perfect size/width for the base of your nose. Among the prominent features that define the “African American” nose are:
- A wide, short nasal tip
- A nasal tip that lacks proper height or definition
- Wide nostrils that can look flared
- Thick nasal skin around the tip, nostrils, and bridge of the nose
