If you’re not satisfied with the size or shape of your nose, then you probably dream of having that perfect nose – one that suits you and looks attractive, natural, and well-suited to your ethnicity.
Nose jobs have to be done in a very meticulous way, paying close attention to your other facial features so as not to be out of balance. There will be different considerations for people of different ethnicities. African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, and other people groups each have unique facial characteristics. A rhinoplasty job that looks good on a Caucasian face will not look natural on an African-American face and vice versa.
Dr. Torgerson is one of Canada’s most respected and skilled facial cosmetic surgeons.
WHY CHOOSE DR. TORGERSON?
There are many factors to consider if you are of a unique ethnic background and are considering rhinoplasty. Often people of colour and different ethnicities desire to undergo rhinoplasty, but they are concerned that the surgeon might not have a suitable understanding of their specific ethnicity and of achieving a proper, natural-looking result. Many would like to have some modifications to how their nose looks; however, they understandably do not want to do so at the expense of giving up their ethnic features.
His background experience and skill in a diversity of ethnic rhinoplasty procedures is extensive, and his clientele boasts a huge number of African-Americans, Asians, Indians, and Persians, among many others. Moreover, he understands the unique features and challenges that come with each ethnicity and will work meticulously to ensure that your nose job is well proportioned with the rest of your face, is natural-looking, and remains in harmony with your ethnicity. His private surgery centre is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, which is widely known to be one of the most multicultural cities in the world. This means that his patient population is diverse, and Dr. Torgerson is well acquainted with ethnic cosmetic surgery of all kinds.
HOW ARE ETHNIC NOSES DIFFERENT FROM CAUCASIAN NOSES?
ETHNIC NOSES DIFFERENCES
Your facial features represent your ethnicity. The nose, in particular, will often show a lot of characteristics of your race or heritage.
Many African noses, for example, have enlarged nostrils. They lack nasal bridge protection and have wide tips. Thick skin is also a prominent factor in African-American Rhinoplasty that needs to be addressed by a skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Torgerson.
Asian noses are relatively shorter and may also have wide nostrils and a little-defined bridge.
Hispanic noses have a dorsal hump and are generally wide and broad.
WHO SHOULD UNDERGO THIS ETHNIC RHINOPLASTY?
Any healthy adult of ethnic descent who wishes to enhance the beauty of their nose could be a good candidate for this procedure. The important thing is to select a facial plastic surgeon who understands the different characteristics of ethnic faces and who creates a nose shape that compliments their features.

Choosing Your Surgeon
Having cosmetic surgery and a feature as prominent and as central as your nose can make a dramatic difference in your overall appearance
It is critical for anyone to select the right facial plastic surgeon – but in some ways, even more so for ethnic people. If you are considering ethnic rhinoplasty, it is always advisable to learn as much about the procedure and your surgeon as you can. Ethnic Rhinoplasty calls for specialized techniques, including an in-depth examination of skin thickness, nasal bases, dorsum structure, and caudal septal before continuing with the procedure. Therefore, the first step is to ensure that you choose a Facial Plastic Surgeon – an expert in Head and Neck Plastic Surgery. Facial plastic surgeons are different than general plastic surgeons, who mainly perform body work such as breast implants or tummy tucks
