Ethnicity is an important part of any person’s makeup. It helps define whom we are and where we came from throughout the generations. Most people have a sense of pride about their ethnicity, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want to improve their appearance. In Orange County, the ethnic rhinoplasty procedure is one of the most requested cosmetic improvements. It is occasionally referred to as the reduction rhinoplasty at Dr. Kevin Sadati’s Newport Beach practice. The goal with this surgery is to reduce the size of the nose, improve the nasal appearance and sometimes remove a bump or hump that occurs as a result of genetics.
Dr. Sadati makes an important distinction when performing this popular plastic surgery. He recognizes that a patient has certain ethnic features, and he works to highlight those features rather than downplay them. Other surgeons tend to see ethnicity as a negative thing, and work to remove all traces of distinct ethnicity through the rhinoplasty procedure. These patients often come to Dr. Sadati requesting a revision ethnic rhinoplasty, because that was not what they were looking for out of cosmetic surgery. Dr. Sadati recognizes that ethnicity is a point of pride for many people, and a huge part of their identity. He wants people to feel self confident in their appearance while still displaying their pride for their ethnicity.
Throughout the course of his 10-year career, Dr. Sadati has worked with patients of all different ethnicities. He is familiar with the features of the Middle Eastern, African, Asian, Caucasian, Hispanic and Greek cultures, and knows how to provide the best results for people of these ethnicities. For instance, Dr. Sadati would not put a scoped dorsum nose on a Middle Eastern patient because this is not a common feature in that culture. Rather, Dr. Sadati would reduce the size of the nose or alter the appearance while still maintaining the straight dorsum that is found on most Middle Eastern patients. This ensures the patient leaves with natural-looking results.
The ethnic rhinoplasty is a unique opportunity for patients because it gives them a chance to control their own personal features without giving up their family, their history and their ethnicity. Dr. Sadati has become known in the area as the one surgeon who can provide these exact results. For more information on your own personal procedure, book a consultation appointment with the surgeon.
