"The perfect experience with unbelievable natural results. Dr. Imola is a true artist and he fully exceeded my expectations. Lisa, his wonderful coordinator was a key player throughout my whole journey as well, from my consultation to my last post-op. I was so nervous about everything, mainly having an unnatural looking result. My areas of concern were my upper eyelids and lower face/jawline. What I appreciate about Dr. Imola is he took his time to listen and address my questions and concerns. He cares about his patients and it shows. I love my results and feel more confident in my appearance. My only regret it not doing it sooner. If you're on the fence...just do it! I would absolutely, without hesitation recommend Dr. Imola. 5 stars all day!"- K.H. / Google / Jan 12, 2023

Am I A Candidate For Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
Anyone over 16 years of age can be an excellent candidate for ethnic rhinoplasty. If you are unhappy with the overall look of your nose and have distinct issues you would like to enhance or repair without affecting your unique cultural heritage and appearance, this surgery may be the right course of action. It's very important that expectations are discussed as your facial appearance will still be changed. In addition, facial maturity should also be complete. These factors and more will be discussed during your consultation to ensure you get the look you want with your ethnic rhinoplasty.
How Does Ethnic Rhinoplasty Work?
Ethnic rhinoplasty can enhance the facial profile by treating a nose that is too broad or tall, flat, small, asymmetrical, or ill-proportioned in relation to the rest of the face. Our nose surgeons are exceptionally skilled at performing ethnic rhinoplasty and take into consideration nostril size and shape, bridge width and dorsal height, and nasal tip projection. This treatment is generally performed on an outpatient basis under IV sedation, local anesthesia, or general anesthesia. Recovery timeframes for Denver rhinoplasty patients vary according to the extent of the procedure but generally range between 2 – 4 weeks.
What Should I Expect Following Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery?
As with any rhinoplasty surgery, there is an extensive recovery process following the procedure. You may experience some swelling, bruising, soreness, and discoloration under the eyes for the first 1-2 days following your procedure. Anti-inflammatory medications can be used to help relieve these symptoms. For several months following surgery, you will notice changes in the nose. During this time, there will be several follow-up visits to Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery to ensure you are healing properly and have no complications. It may take up to a year for final results to be obtained. Since every case and ethnicity are different, results will vary from patient to patient.
Ethnic Rhinoplasty FAQ
How is ethnic rhinoplasty different than other rhinoplasty procedures?
Ethnic rhinoplasty focuses on improving the appearance of the nose while still maintaining your cultural identity. These may be a consideration if you are Asian, African-American, or Middle Eastern. In your consultation, you can talk about what you like about your nose and what you want to change. This will allow us to personalize your treatment plan — so you get your best results.
How much does ethnic rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of nose reshaping surgery varies based on what technique is used and the complexity of the procedure. Before estimating costs, we will listen to your needs and goals to help develop your custom treatment plan. Once this is complete, we can go over costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. For your best results, it's important to focus on choosing an experienced surgeon, like the skilled members of our team, instead of the lowest cost. To help make your surgery easy to afford, Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods and our office can help you find low-interest medical financing.
Will my insurance cover functional nose surgery?
Although rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons is not covered by insurance, functional rhinoplasty that is medically necessary to improve your breathing may be covered by insurance. If you are considering applying for reimbursement from your insurance, please tell us in your consultation. We can help you submit the needed information and paperwork to your insurance to properly process your claim.
Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?
If you want to smooth lumps and bumps on your nose, a hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle filler (like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) may be an option. A filler can temporarily improve minor imperfections, which may help you decide to get an ethnic rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for long-lasting results, larger changes, and improving the internal structure of the nose for better function. During your consultation, we will let you know if you may be a candidate for nonsurgical nose reshaping.
Can I combine ethnic rhinoplasty with other facial surgeries?
Many patients think about combining their ethnic nose surgery with another cosmetic procedure, like cheek or chin augmentation. Combining surgeries for a more dramatic result can be discussed during your consultation. Once we understand your goals, we can help you choose what procedures will be in your treatment plan. Ethnic rhinoplasty can often help make your whole face appear more balanced, so you should wait to see your results before considering another procedure.
