What is different about African American noses and what has to be taken into consideration when performing rhinoplasty

Dr. Kassir takes your ethnic background into consideration when performing rhinoplasty. He performs ethnic, custom rhinoplasty. Patients of Hispanic backgrounds tend to have thicker skin and flatter noses, which makes refining the nasal tip more challenging. Requests include: lifting the bridge, narrowing the nostrils, and enhancing the profile.
