About our Cheap Ethnic Rhinoplasty in Tunisia
In general, African patients want to achieve the following goals with their rhinoplasty surgery:
- Make the nostrils more narrow
- Increase the size of the nose when looking at the profile
- Improve definition of the tip
- Fix the drooping tip
- Create a natural nose to fit the face
Before and after the Ethnic Rhinoplasty
The Ethnic nose surgery is more of a reconstructive surgery when compared to non-ethnic rhinoplasties. A bony and cartilaginous framework supports the nose. The cartilages in African are weaker and require support, including:
- Cartilage from the nose and other areas of the body added to support the nose and tip
- Nose built up from the profile view with the addition of more cartilage
The nostrils are typically narrowed with incisions made in the creases of the nose. They are placed in this location to hide the delicate incision lines. During surgery, the surgeon uses special sutures and grafts to define the nasal tip.
Cartilage collection locations to support and build up the nose
Cartilage is harvested from other areas of the body and then used to support and rebuild the nose. Cartilage can be harvested from the following 3 locations:
1) The nasal septum – The cartilage that separates the right and left nasal passageway.
2) The ear – The incision is hidden behind the ear. There is very little perceived change in the ear.
3) Rib – On noses that require a considerable amount of cartilage, a small piece of a rib can be harvested. This is only used if necessary.
Often patients ask for an implant, such as silicone or Gore-Tex, to help build and strengthen the nose. While this will make the surgery easier for the surgeon, he rarely places unnatural permanent products into the nose during an African rhinoplasty in Charlotte due to the higher risk of complications.
