At the Few Institute, we are committed to nose reshaping surgery that enhances and respects your ethnic background. Many plastic surgeons focus on creating a “westernized” nose – but a more careful approach that enhances the subtle differences in a racial background produces a far superior look. There is no “perfect nose” that suits every face – every rhinoplasty procedure must be custom-tailored to produce balance, harmony, and honor and preserve the inherent beauty of the ethnic background.
Dr. Few is an acclaimed rhinoplasty surgeon who has performed custom ethnic rhinoplasty surgeries in Chicago, on patients with various ethnic backgrounds with beautiful outcomes. Each ethnicity is slightly different in how the nose is structured, along differences in skin thickness. While many plastic surgeons perform the majority of their procedures on Caucasians, Dr. Few works closely with patients from all walks of life, and from across the globe. His goal is to create a reshaped nose structure that is a true enhancement for the other facial features, in perfect balance, and natural in appearance.
An African heritage has a singular natural beauty that should be enhanced when an ethnic rhinoplasty is performed. Many patients with this background are unhappy with some aspect of the nose structure, often feeling the nose is too wide, or nostrils too large. A careful and delicate resculpting of the nose shape will subtly alter your appearance by refining your nose structure so it is less prominent. This can be a significant change in your overall appearance when performed by Dr. Few. Nostrils can be reshaped to be smaller, while appearing very natural – a true enhancement.
A Hispanic ethnic background may involve a nose structure with a rise on the upper nose bridge. Wider nostrils are another issue those with a Latin heritage often want to alter. A Hispanic rhinoplasty should honor your ethnic background with subtle changes that bring out the most beautiful aspects of facial structure.
There are many countries in the Middle East, each with unique cultural differences. Dr. Few custom-tailors each of his Chicago ethnic rhinoplasty procedures with the goal of creating a beautiful balance that brings out the attractive qualities inherent in the facial structure of the individual. Whether a hump on the bridge, an overlarge or hanging nose tip, or other flaw, the alterations to nose shape will leave you with a more refined appearance, while maintaining the attractive qualities of your background.
Many Asian clients want to alter nose structure, as they feel the nose bridge is too flat, or the nostrils too large. A careful alteration of nose shape may include adding volume to the nose bridge or reshaping the nostrils to appear more refined. Adding volume to the nose bridge is a delicate procedure that requires top-level surgical skills and an eye for creating balance and harmony for the individual.
Dr. Few has extensive experience in rhinoplasty surgeries, including treating patients from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. As rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most complex of all facial surgeries, it is vital that you are under the care of a gifted plastic surgeon who cares about you as an individual. As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Few is often called upon to revise an earlier rhinoplasty.
The surgery requires developing a customized surgical plan to address the flaws the patient doesn’t like about nose structure. There are two basic surgical approaches:
What will you need? Only a physical examination of your nose will reveal what will be required in your case.
An ethnic rhinoplasty often requires several hours of meticulous surgery. To reshape bone, cartilage, skin, and tissue demands a delicate approach and an artistic eye for detail. You will be under local anesthesia and intravenous sedation or in some cases, general anesthesia. When you awaken, your nose will be bandaged to keep it stable during healing.
The recovery from rhinoplasty takes some time. You should plan on taking a week to ten days off work. In the first stage of healing, it is normal to experience swelling, bruising, and some discomfort. You will have prescription pain medication to keep your comfortable in during this stage. As the days pass, the swelling will diminish, and your new nose shape will begin to be revealed. Every person heals at a different rate, and younger people tend to recover more quickly. After nose reshaping surgery, the final outcome takes up to a year to be fully in place – but most patients feel back to themselves in about three weeks, when most of the swelling has resolved.
