Is ethnic rhinoplasty considered more complex than other rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a complex surgery. When performing an ethnic rhinoplasty, it is important for me to take into consideration the unique characteristics of the patient’s ethnicity as well as their desires. These unique characteristics include skin type, facial features, bone and cartilage structure of the nose, among other characteristics. Typically, patients desire a result that is in harmony with their facial features and in the context of their ethnicity. Digital imaging during the consultation further aids us in the discussion of what the patient desires are and what limitations exist within the confines of their anatomy.
