How Does It Work?
Before your procedure, Dr. Ali takes special care to understand your concerns and your goals. He works closely with each patient to create an ethnically-appropriate nose with natural-looking results. Dr. Ali uses the latest surgical advancements to ensure an optimal outcome for each and every patient regardless of their ethnicity.
Dr. Ali Qureshi is a fellowship trained rhinoplasty specialist with experience performing rhinoplasties of all types including:
- Asian Rhinoplasty: During this procedure, Dr. Ali meticulously works to build the nasal bridge for a stronger, more defined appearance. Depending on your needs and goals, autologous rib cartilage may be used for this procedure. He may also use a diced cartilage and fascia (DCF) graft to help augment the nose.
- South Asian Rhinoplasty: This procedure can consist of smoothing a hooked nose, elevating a droopy trip as well as narrowing overly wide nostrils. Sometimes there is a dorsal hump that is not desired. Results can be as subtle or as dramatic as you’d like.
- Persian Rhinoplasty: Many people of Persian descent seek out rhinoplasty procedures to remove a hump on the bridge of the nose or to achieve a nose that is more harmonious with their facial features. Dr. Ali also sees many patients to correct a severely elongated or droopy nasal tip.
- Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty: In this procedure, Dr. Ali will help create a more refined nasal tip and address a hump on the nose if there is one. His goal is to improve the nose and tip, while maintaining good breathing. During his fellowship, Dr. Ali traveled abroad to Dubai to perform Middle Eastern rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty.
Ethnic rhinoplasties are done on an outpatient basis and take 2-4 hours depending on the complexity involved. Revision rhinoplasties with rib can also be performed a part of ethnic rhinoplasty. Incisions are made either within the nasal cavity and can be performed either closed or open depending on your goals and anatomy. Dr. Ali will walk you through the procedure from start to finish at the time of your in-person consultation.
What Results Can I Expect from Ethnic Rhinoplasty?*
Initial results can be seen nearly immediately. Severe contours will be softened, and your new shape will be apparent. Gradual improvement will continue as post-surgical swelling dissipates. While the final outcome of your procedure may not be evident for 6-12 months, most patients see the majority of swelling go away within a month. Rhinoplasty results can be long-lasting with many patients only needing one surgery in a lifetime but some patients may have already had a rhinoplasty by another surgeon and need a revision ethnic rhinoplasty.
What is the Recovery Like?*
Ethnic rhinoplasties heal like other rhinoplasties and Dr. Ali will guide you through your recovery with a customized enhanced recovery protocol that either reduces or minimizes any narcotic use. Swelling gets worse before it gets better but by one month the majority of swelling is gone.
Most patients feel comfortable returning to work and other normal activities in about one week. The majority of swelling will dissipate by a month. Full recovery from an ethnic rhinoplasty can take anywhere from 3-6 months. Revision ethnic rhinoplasty may take longer for swelling to subside.
