The history of ethnic rhinoplasty Charlotte NC

When a surgeon performs ethnic rhinoplasty Charlotte NC, he or she uses essentially the same procedures as in any other form of rhinoplasty. What makes ethnic rhinoplasty different is that the surgeon bears in mind the standards of beauty that prevail in the patient’s community and culture, and respects those standards while performing the work.

For a long time in the U.S. and other Western nations, standards of beauty were defined by, for want of a better term, whiteness. For African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Jews and others, rhinoplasty was a way to change the shape of the nose in order to give the patient what Virginia Blum called “the ski-slope nose coveted by so many Americans whose ethnic appearance diverged from the prevailing white Anglo-Saxon Protestant.” The trouble was that a nose that looks perfect on one face would often look completely wrong on another.

Modern ethnic rhinoplasty
These days, ethnic rhinoplasty Charlotte NC means a procedure on one’s nose that specifically reflects a standard of beauty found within one’s own community. For this reason, it could be said that all rhinoplasty is ethnic rhinoplasty, although not everyone thinks of it this way. But you need to have a very specific idea of what sort of improvement you want and which standards of beauty you’re trying to emulate. Some surgeons have computer imaging software that can help with this. You also need to find a surgeon who respects your wishes and is skilled enough to make the right changes.
