What is a Hispanic Rhinoplasty?
A Hispanic rhinoplasty is different from any other type of nose job. It is unique from the African American, Caucasian, and Middle Eastern rhinoplasty, and thus is treated as such by Dr. Morin. Though it is true that not all Hispanic patients have the exact same features, there are many similarities that define the nasal anatomy of the Hispanic nose. For example, a Hispanic rhinoplasty may be effective in improving:
- An nasal tip that lacks proper definition and/or projection
- Wide nostrils that appear flared
- Thick nasal skin that makes the nose appear overall larger and wider
- A hump in the nose that is apparent from the front/side profile
Dr. Morin, through his years of experience performing Hispanic rhinoplasties, has cultivated distinct techniques that produce the most aesthetically-pleasing results. He is knowledgeable and trained in the Hispanic nose job, so you can be certain that you are in good hands under his care. And as a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Morin has the proper qualifications to be your leader on the journey to your new nose.
Hispanic vs. Caucasian Rhinoplasty
Some doctors aim for a cookie-cutter type of nose job that looks the same on everyone. Dr. Morin wants you to embrace your Hispanic identity, and will never try to undermine your cultural heritage. Not only are nasal structures and compositions different, but the overall look of the patient must be taken into consideration throughout the procedure. Dr. Morin will construct your new nose with your heritage in mind. He will make sure that your nose is in harmony with your surrounding facial features, highlighting your eyes and smile without attracting unwanted attention to the center of your face.
What to Expect Before and After Your Hispanic Rhinoplasty
Getting a nose job is a commitment, so you should make sure that you can take enough time off from your daily routine to properly heal and relax after your surgery. Generally, Dr. Morin advises his patients to plan to take between 5 and 10 days off from work, during which time nasal swelling and bruising is most present. Swelling will be most exaggerated for the first couple months following your rhinoplasty, after which time the shape of your new nose will be able to be more visibly assessed. Your new nose, designed and implemented by Dr. Morin, will compliment your entire face. You will no longer have to feel self-conscious because its size and shape, and instead will be confident that you are giving the world the best representation of yourself.
