Understanding ethnic rhinoplasty in North Carolina
When talking about ethnic rhinoplasty in North Carolina, we should understand what ethnic rhinoplasty means today. The term once meant surgery that “ethnic” people (that is to say, people who either were not or did not look like they were Anglo-Saxon, German or of similar ethnicities that were sort of treated as the default in America) went through to remove any aspect of their nose that looked like an “ethnic” characteristic. This often meant that the person ended up with a nose that didn’t quite look right on his or her face, even if it was difficult for an outside observer to say exactly what the problem was.
Since then, at least a few things have changed for the better. Today, getting ethnic rhinoplasty in North Carolina means looking for a surgeon who will work on your nose in a way that doesn’t disguise your ethnic heritage, but instead comes closer to the standards of beauty that prevail within your own ethnic group. Of course, this requires that you have a very clear idea in your own mind of the exact standards of beauty you are trying to emulate and what sort of improvement you want made, but if it’s done right it can be a great source of satisfaction. According to a 2008 study, African-American patients who had open rhinoplasty done while maintaining ethnic characteristics were most often pleased with the results.
