Rhinoplasty is the most complex cosmetic surgical procedure, and it requires a unique approach with each patient. With Hispanic rhinoplasty, the procedure must be specially designed to consider the unique ethnic characteristics and features of the patient while maintaining ethnic identity.
Dr. Miller frequently meets with patients who are concerned they will lose their ethnic identity through nasal surgery, with an end result that appears too “Caucasian.” Dr. Miller has developed many techniques specific to Hispanic patients for excellent results that retain ethnic identity.
With more than 52 million Latinos in the United States, it is no surprise that there is a high and growing demand for the Hispanic nose job, which is growing faster than almost any other procedure. The Latino community has a wide range of diversity, and even slight differences in characteristics and nasal features exist, which means that rhinoplasties for such patients can be broken down into even smaller ethnic groups.
Hispanic patients often share several common nasal characteristics, including thick skin and a bulbous nasal tip that is difficult to refine using traditional methods. Other areas that must be considered include:
- A large bridge (Spanish heritage)
- Wide, flat nostrils (Caribbean heritage)
- Flatter nasal tips and bridges (Central and South American heritage)
Dr. Miller has more than two decades of experience in facial plastic surgery and the dedication to every patient that allows him to develop the necessary personalized treatment plans that combine desired changes with preservation for the best results from surgery.
