How is a Jewish nose job different?
Published on by Batniji Facial Plastic Surgery
I’ve read where rhinoplasty is different for patients of different ethnicities. How is this so for Jewish people?
A Jewish nose may have a hump along the bridge. This hump is usually bony and cartilaginous in nature. Refinement of the bridge of the nose by trimming down the bony and cartilaginous hump may be of benefit. With respect to ethnic rhinoplasty, I shave the hump along the bridge of the nose without over-resecting it and/or giving an “overdone” look, thus maintaining your ethnicity.
