Middle Eastern Nose Surgery

Like people of all ethnic origins, people from the Middle East have become more interested in nose surgery. The trend for Middle Eastern nose surgery extends from America to the Middle East. The types of features that Middle Eastern people may be interested in improving through nose surgery include:

  • nasal hump
  • wide nasal bones
  • broad nasal bridge
  • long nose
  • downward nose tip
  • wide nose tip
  • thick nasal skin

Of course, not all people of Middle Eastern origin have the above mentioned features. For example, some people may have thin nasal skin. Yet, by and large, people of Middle Eastern origin interested in nose surgery seek out the procedure to improve some of the above mentioned features.

The uniqueness involved in nose surgery for Middle Eastern people lies in the fact that often nose surgery involves both reshaping and rebuilding. The nose tip may need to be rotated in an upward direction. Cartilage and nose tip grafts may be used to further define the nose tip and position. An overlay method may be used to reduce the appearance of a nose flare. Nasal skin may need to be thinned out around the nose tip. Middle Eastern people are more likely to have a high dorsal line and a nasal hump when compared to people of Caucasian origin. So, nose surgery may involve changing the height of the dorsal line and smoothing out the nasal hump. Depending upon the extent of the procedure for rebuilding, the open approach may be the best technique for significant rebuilding.

Interestingly enough, Iran has been touted the nose surgery capitol of the world by some. Teheran opened its first plastic surgery clinic several years ago to serve Middle Eastern people interested in nose surgery. In fact, it has been claimed that nose surgery does not conflict with the Koran, making nose surgery possible for Muslims with noses that are fully developed.
