Individuals of Indian descent often seek nose surgery that includes lifting the tip of the nose, removing a bump, narrowing the nostrils, altering the appearance of the bridge of the nose or generally correcting asymmetry of their nose.
Typically people of Indian ancestry have wider noses and thicker skin. These characteristics must be addressed when performing any cosmetic facial surgery such as a rhinoplasty procedure and need to be understood and respected to produce an outcome not only ethnically in balance with the entire face but meeting the patient’s desired goals.
Dr. Yael Halaas of New York City is a Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon well known and respected within the medical community for her expertise, techniques and experience in performing natural ethnic appropriate facial rhinoplasty procedures amongst all forms of facial reconstructive, both surgical and non-surgical, methods to create more pleasing, better functioning, age appropriate features.
