Abstract

As the United States becomes more racially and ethnically diverse, the number of non-Caucasian patients seeking rhinoplasty is increasing. The non-Caucasian, or ethnic, rhinoplasty patient can be a surgical challenge due to the significant anatomic variability from the standard European nose as well as variability within each ethnicity. Becoming familiar with the common anatomic differences as well as the aesthetic goals in the ethnic rhinoplasty patient will assist the surgeon in attaining consistent, ethnically congruent, and aesthetically pleasing results.
