There are tremendous facial anatomy differences among ethnic groups, and within each group there is still significant variation from patient to patient
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
Dr. Babak Azizzadeh of the CENTER for Facial Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles has seen an increase in ethnic patients recently, the majority of whom want nose surgery. Many seek out Dr. Azizzadeh because he has extensive experience performing rhinoplasty surgeries on patients of diverse ethnicities.
Traditionally, ideal nasal proportions were based on Caucasian females because of their revalence in the media. However, today the standards of beauty are changing and patients want results that are more reflective of their cultural background. Ethnic patients who come to Dr. Azizzadeh achieve great results from their surgery because he is very familiar with the variation in facial and nasal anatomy of many ethnicities.
“There are tremendous facial anatomy differences among ethnic groups, and within each group there is still significant variation from patient to patient,” said Dr. Azizzadeh. He strives to provide his patients with balanced aesthetic outcomes that preserve their ethnic identity.
Another important factor of ethnic rhinoplasty surgeries is that the surgeon needs to listen to the patient’s needs. “The length of time that a person has lived in the United States and the level of his or her assimilation need to be discussed during the consultation. Different cultures dictate unique aesthetic expectations, so it is important not to box patients into a generic ethnic rhinoplasty category,” explained Dr. Azizzadeh.
It is of great importance that ethnic patients who are interested in rhinoplasty surgery find a surgeon who has experience working with other patients of their background. Not only is the understanding of an aesthetically balanced nose important in ethnic rhinoplasty surgeons, but it is also imperative that the surgeon has a thorough knowledge of the physical differences that need to be accounted for. For example, thickness and fatty content of the skin on the nose can vary significantly by ethnicity.
Dr. Azizzadeh’s combined expertise in nose surgery and his specialty in facial plastic surgery make him a highly sought out ethnic rhinoplasty surgery surgeon.
