Hispanic Wide Nose Rhinoplasty
People from Central and South America, Portugal, Spain, and the Caribbean, such as the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, are Latinos or Hispanics. Many people in Southern California and people with Spanish nose shapes need help from a plastic surgeon who has a lot of experience with hispanic wide nose rhinoplasty surgery. A double-board certified plastic surgeon can give all of his patients great results from rhinoplasty, no matter what their ethnicity is. This is because this procedure requires knowing how different ethnic groups’ noses are built.
Hispanic patients are different from people of other races because their skin is thicker and their noses and nostrils are different shapes.
For many Latin patients, a flat nasal dorsum or dorsal hump is a concern. When the nasal dorsum is like this, the nose looks much wider than it is. The noses of Hispanic and Latino patients can have wide nostrils, a wide tip, and thick skin.
With the Hispanic nose job, the nasal dorsum needs to be fixed for many people. Depending on how the patient’s face looks, the top of the nose should either be straight or curved. Patients might want their nose tips to be smoother and stand out more.
We choose to strengthen the cartilage at the tip of the nose instead of adding cartilage grafts to the nasal cartilage to meet these needs. In this way, the nose tip keeps its natural look while becoming more defined. Some people also need to get treatment for their nasal wings.
How Does Hispanic Wide Nose Rhinoplasty Work?
In ethnic rhinoplasty, the patient’s ethnic traits are kept while the nose is changed to fit the patient’s face. This method also takes into account the internal and external ethnic features of a person’s nose.
People get this surgery because they want straighter noses that don’t look like they belong to a certain race. Your face won’t lose everything that makes it unique, though. So, the skilled surgeons have to use a method that is very different from what they would do on a Caucasian patient.
In the first ten years of the 21st century, more than half of the people who moved to the United States were Latinos. Even though they are not the fastest-growing group, Hispanics are the largest minority in the US. Because of this, plastic surgeons, especially in southern California, start to pay attention to them.
Rhinoplasty is the most common facial plastic surgery done all over the world, including in Orange County and Newport Beach. Because rhinoplasty is becoming more and more popular, more people are learning that it is not a “one-size-fits-all” treatment. Instead, it needs a surgeon who knows how to treat the different nasal problems that people of different races have.
Types Of Hispanic Noses
Hispanic rhinoplasty is a type of cosmetic nose surgery that takes into account the way Hispanic noses are built. A lot of our Latino patients come from different parts of the U.S., Mexico, South America, and other places.
People from different parts of Latin America look different. Because of this, you could say that Latin heritage is diverse. Patients from Central and South America usually look different than the majority of patients, who are from Spain. Hispanic rhinoplasty is usually done on people whose noses have these traits:
Mestizo Nose Shape
The new trend in rhinoplasty surgery is to stop using the more aggressive techniques that have been used in the past and instead use techniques that keep the nose’s ethnic features and take them into account. The Mestizo person is not different in any way. To get good results, you need a planned, step-by-step plan.
In Spanish, “mestizo” means “of more than one race.” They are a mix of local African tribes that were brought over through the slave trade, native tribes that lived in the area of the continent, and Europeans (mostly Spanish) who took over the areas in the 15th century. During World Wars I and II, there were more Europeans in the mix.
Both Europeans and Native Americans have a large tip and broad, thick skin, like the Mestizo patient. Most of the time, grafting and sutures are used by surgeons to define the shape of the nose and strengthen the parts that hold it up. By doing this, he gets good effects that last a long time. This type is thought to be the hardest to change the way it looks.
Even though most people with this type of nose are Spanish, some Caucasians also have it. It has a typical tip projection and a high bridge. Dorsal reduction and tip revision are usually needed to fix problems with how something looks.
Because the patient has a Castilian nose, his or her face doesn’t look right. When you look at someone from the side, a big nose can make their chin look small or sunken. But if the nose is made smaller, the chin will look more like it fits with the rest of the face. For the Castilian type of nose, this method is often needed.
