What sort of changes do you often make to the nose for African American patients?

Question:
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?

Answer:
It really depends on your specific nasal anatomy and what you desire. Many times the width of the base of the nose can be decreased and the nasal tip can be reduced. Consultation with a board certified facial plastic or plastic surgeon can help with these decisions.
