Darien Plastic Surgeon Discusses the Intricacies of Ethnic Rhinoplasty Procedures

As Ethnic Rhinoplasty Becomes More of a Mainstream Procedure, Dr. Fredric Newman Points Out Specific Factors That Should Be Considered Throughout the Process for Both Surgeon and Patient

DARIEN, CT--(Marketwired - Apr 9, 2014) - Dr. Fredric Newman, a plastic surgeon in Darien, notes that ethnic rhinoplasty has become a growing trend as it is being pursued more and more across different cultures and ethnicities. In fact, he points out that it is a rapidly expanding part of The Aesthetic Surgery Center, composing the majority of his patients interested in nasal surgery. Dr. Newman says rhinoplasty was originally more popular with Caucasian and African American patients, but it has now expanded to people from a variety of areas, such as the Middle East, South America, India, and Europe.

In his blog post "Ethnic Rhinoplasty Vs. Traditional Rhinoplasty," Dr. Newman explains how there are numerous complexities in an ethnic rhinoplasty procedure that may not be present in the traditional surgery. He details why it is necessary to maintain some degree of the patient's ethnic characteristics. As discussed in a second blog post, "The Importance of Ethnic Relevance in a Rhinoplasty," doing so allows him to provide a natural look that is harmonious with the rest of the face. In addition to ethnic relevance, Dr. Newman says people of varying backgrounds tend to have specific anthropological traits, such as a more fragile nasal septum, that should be considered during the surgery. All of these details come into play when he modifies a patient's nose.

While it is important to remember the patient's aesthetic wishes, Dr. Newman believes function should always be the top priority. If one of his plastic surgery patients desires an altered nasal shape, he will evaluate how the adjustment will affect function, doing his best to help them reach their aesthetic goals while still maintaining, if not improving, the nasal function. As a result, he can determine whether their goals are realistic and will provide the best aesthetic outcome.

In the end, Dr. Newman is proud to help patients achieve their ideal facial aesthetic through ethnic rhinoplasty. He performs the surgery with the goal of providing a beautiful harmony with the rest of the face for the most natural-looking results possible. For those interested in the ethnic rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Newman encourages patients to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to better understand how it can affect their facial appearance.
