Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Hispanic Rhinoplasty

Highlight Your Most Remarkable Features

When working with Hispanic rhinoplasty patients, Dr. Bared strives to achieve natural looking results while preserving ethnic features. The goal is always to draw attention away from the nose toward the eyes. Dr. Bared tailors each rhinoplasty procedure, taking into account the patient’s anatomy, skin thickness, nasal bone length and cartilage size.

Hispanic Rhinoplasty

Being of Hispanic descent himself, Dr. Bared personally understands that within the Hispanic patient population, there are a multitude of different nasal types depending on the individual’s background. In some cases, Hispanic noses resemble the Caucasian nose in anatomy and skin thickness. While in other cases, Hispanic patients may have a more Mestizo-type nose where the nasal bones may be shorter, the septal cartilage may be smaller, and the skin may be thicker, thus requiring a different approach altogether.

The Approach

While the more Caucasian Hispanic nose may need less tip support, a reduction of a hump, and strategies for the thinner nasal skin; the more Mestizo nose may require an entirely different technique.

Hispanic patients with very weak tip cartilages may need adequate projection and grafting while patients with very strong and large cartilages may need suturing and careful reduction of their cartilages. In general, Dr. Bared employs a cartilage-sparing technique for tip refinement. In his thorough understanding of the nose, he makes reductions in very safe areas of the tip cartilages in order to help prevent long term problems.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure

Just as every nose is different, every nose job is individualized.

For some patients, a sharper, pointier nasal tip is deemed perfect. Others may prefer a more rounded, natural look. Whichever outcome you are most drawn to, rhinoplasty is the cure all procedure.

Dr. Bared utilizes a computer imaging tool during the pre-op consultation to establish rapport with his patients and ensure that the vision matches the execution. By visualizing the potential results on a screen, patients are able to communicate their goals and discuss realistic expectations.

Rhinoplasty itself involves manipulating the bone and sculpting cartilage with acute precision. Dr. Bared typically uses cartilage from the the septum, which is the cartilage that divides both sides of the nose, and strategically places the grafts at the tip to support the bridge of the nose. The use of cartilage grafts prevents compromising the long term shape and function of the nose.

Optimizing Rhinoplasty Results

In order to optimize your results, Dr. Bared:

  • Uses natural cartilage instead of artificial implants
  • Avoids the use of any artificial material
  • Is meticulous about the placement of incision and closure
  • Uses only the finest sutures to close the wound
  • Uses a caliper and projectimeter to measure changes to the nose down to the millimeter

Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia to promote your comfort and safety during the procedure.

Rhinoplasty can correct any of the following concerns:

Nasal Bridge (too large or too small) Drooping Nasal Tip Bumps Deviated Septum Nostrils (too large)

Recovering from Rhinoplasty

The First 24 Hours

The procedure is generally performed as an outpatient. You will see Dr. Bared in the office the day following your surgery. He will prescribe you with antibiotics that you will take orally, and recommend that you use ice packs to reduce any swelling and pain.

The First Week

Plan for one week of downtime from work or school. It may also be best to stay indoors to avoid excessive sweating while the cast is in place. You should begin to notice the initial swelling from the surgery subside over the next 10 days.

The First Month

After your cast is removed, your nose will appear wide for some time. This type of swelling along with contraction of the skin is normal and expected after a rhinoplasty procedure.

It is important to maintain close follow-up with Dr. Bared during the recovery process as measures can be taken to improve the healing of the nose.

Full Recovery

Rhinoplasty results take time to manifest as the skin needs time to heal and the swelling to subside.

Final results will be revealed over time.
