"Dr. Mario Imola is beyond incredible, and his staff is all so incredibly caring and so very kind. I was referred to Dr. Imola after a couple visits to specialists confirming that my nasal passages were nearly closed due to a trauma after a rhinoplasty almost 20 years ago. Which left my nose, making a hard left on my face....along with the lack of function. Meeting Lisa and Dr. Imola, for the first time, I knew I was in good hands. They are so professional and so down to earth. Dr. Imola is a true artist. He performed a septoplasty along with a revision rhinoplasty accompanied by a rib graft. My nose is now straight on my face, and who knew breathing was so cool. Thank you will never be enough for what Dr. Imola and his fantastic staff have done for me. I'm eternally grateful."- J. / Google / Dec 01, 2023
"I contemplated getting my nose straightened for years and didn’t take the step until meeting Dr. Imola and couldn’t be more happy at the result. I am not vain but it is life changing. I could dwell on not having done it sooner (which I should have), but am just so glad I did it eventually and more so that I did so at COFPSC. Dr. Imola is unassuming and wholly professional and the staff in particular Lisa are exceptional, they make everything so easy and are always responsive to any questions or concerns."- G.S. / Google / Nov 17, 2023
"I was shell shocked after trauma left my nose collapsed, and even more stressed because I needed a revision rhinoplasty as I already had a rhinoplasty a while back. I didn’t know who to go to in order to get my functionality/breathing back as well as an appropriate aesthetic for my ethnic background but to my relief, this clinic and it’s staff saved my nose as I knew it. Dr.Imola is the nose whisperer. He asks you about your goals, and then makes a plan taking your needs into account and combining them with his expertise and artistic vision. He sees you frequently after the surgery to make sure healing goes according to plan. Lisa is the admin and guides you like a pro from start to finish. She made me feel taken care of after the surgery/during recovery. This isn’t her first rodeo and she has everything on lock. I’m a wuss so the surgery and recovery itself was tough, but a few months later and my nose doesn’t look like a pot sticker anymore lmao 😮💨✨ my nostrils now have support, and i walk around with a natural looking masterpiece in the middle of my face. I’m very grateful for Dr. Imola’s work."- Z. / Google / Nov 17, 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.
