Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty in New York City
Middle Eastern rhinoplasty is considered to be a challenging yet exciting procedure. When undergoing ethnic rhinoplasty, patients tend to be disappointed due to “racial incongruity”. This occurs when a plastic surgeon attempts to sculpt a Middle Eastern nose into an idealized version of the “Caucasian nose”. The end result is not-natural looking and causes dissatisfaction from the patient.
Dr. Kassir discusses “the golden ratio”, which essentially means that the patient’s nose must blend seamlessly into the facial structure. In order to achieve this, it requires the plastic surgeon to take an “ethno-sensitive approach”.
While there are certain commonalities among people of Middle Eastern descent, the plastic surgeon takes into account the nasal and facial features unique to each patient. Dr. Kassir is a sculptor by training, and looks at each and every patient as his canvas.
