In our practice Dr. Corbin caters to all
ethnic backgrounds. Because of the many nasal
shapes, skin types and individual patients
needs, Dr. Corbin tailors his surgery to fit
African American Patients
Afro-American patients frequently have a very
flat dorsum associated with a wide, low poorly
projecting tip and thick skin. Surgery is directed
to elevate the dorsum, narrow and project the tip
and reduce the width of the ala. Frequently cartilage
is used from the septum or the ear to build up the
dorsum or project the tip. Implants may also be used.
Hispanic patients frequently have a weak broad
drooping tip that may be associated with a dorsal
hump. Surgery is directed to elevate and narrow
the tip while removing the bump.
Mediterranian patient’s (those of Jewish, Persian,
Italian or Greek heritage) may have a dorsal hump
and a drooping tip. The skin may be thick or thin.
Surgery is directed to elevate and narrow the tip
while lowering and narrowing the dorsum. Care is
always taken in these patient’s to maintain the nasal
airway while improving the appearance of the nose.
If the dorsum or bridge of the nose needs to be built
up as in most Asian patients Dr. Corbin tries to use
their own tissues. These tissues are taken from the
patients’ septum and used to build up the dorsum or
modify and enhance the tip. In rare instances where
there is no tissue available from the septum, tissue
can be taken from the ear or scalp and used for the
same purpose. Nasal implants may also be used.
Nasal implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Depending on the individual needs of each patient,
nasal implants made of silicone or gortex can be used to
reshape or give more prominence to the appearance of the nose.
Individual patient nose cosmetic surgery results vary from patient to patient. We do not guarantee that any patients surgery results will look like any photos in this gallery, in our photo books or website.
