Rhinoplasty- The Primary Objective

The Distinctive Features of the Ethnic Nose
As an example, African-Americans have a nose structure that is very different from that of other races. These are a collective function of the skeletal as well as the musculoskeletal structure of the nose. The degree of thickness of subcutaneous fat also contributes to the structure of the ethnic nose.
After having a look at the ethnic nose, you will notice the need of harmony at the base of the nose in the upper jaw and along the nasal bridge. Careful attention should also be paid to the small furrow just adjacent to the upper border of the upper eyelid in the structure of the tarsal cartilage.
The thickness of the ethnic nose is also a challenge for the cosmetic surgeon. There is a layer of fat just under the thick skin of the ethnic nose which is strongly bound to the underlying tissue. Various anatomical structures such as the sebaceous glands are also present in this layer of skin. While reconstructing the ethnic nose, the cosmetic surgeon has to be wary of all these structures and be sure not to harm any of these during the process of remodelling.
