I’m African American and I think I have a somewhat typical African American nose. What sort of changes do you often make to the nose for African American patients?
No two noses are the same but most black patients require tip narrowing, tip elevation or a droopy tip, support of the tip, narrowing of wide nostrils and elevation of the bridge to give it more height. I often need rib or costal cartilage for such changes and I do this all the time with great results. But not all African American patients need the same maneuvers.
