The time has come to discuss one of the most sensitive subjects in the field of facial plastic surgery — ethnic rhinoplasty Charlotte.
For a long time in America, standards of beauty were defined by, for want of a better term, whiteness. To African-Americans, Asian-Americans and many others, facial plastic surgery was a way to alter the nose, lips or other features in order to make them more European in shape if not in color. Jews often sought out ethnic rhinoplasty Charlotte for similar reasons. According to Virginia Blum in The Guardian, who received a rhinoplasty at a young age, “The ski-slope nose coveted by so many Americans whose ethnic appearance diverged from the prevailing white Anglo-Saxon Protestant aesthetic, was often sought with little regard to facial context.”
These days, ethnic rhinoplasty Charlotte means something entirely different. It means looking for an improvement on one’s nose that does not diminish one’s ethnic heritage, but reflects a standard of beauty found within one’s own ethnic group. This requires two things. First, it requires having an exact sense of what sort of improvement you want and the standards of beauty you are trying to emulate. Some surgeons have computer imaging software that can help with this. Second, it means finding a surgeon who respects your wishes and is skilled enough to make the right changes. According to a 2008 study, African-American patients who underwent open rhinoplasty with an eye toward maintaining ethnic characteristics reported a high degree of satisfaction with the results.
