Ethnic rhinoplasty is a type of rhinoplasty catered towards non-Caucasian patients. Surgeons with this specialty will take into account what makes a patient’s face ethnically unique when designing the procedure so as not to erase those traits, should a patient wish to keep them. Patients from different ethnic backgrounds may experience differences in rhinoplasty procedures and recovery times but only in minor degrees.
No matter what your ethnic background, Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness provides respectful, confidential care during your recovery. With over ten years of experience treating both domestic and international patients, we are able to provide high standards of care whether you are receiving surgery close to home or oceans away from home.
What Ethnic Rhinoplasty Recovery Will Be Like
Depending on your ethnic background, your rhinoplasty recovery time may be slightly longer than the estimated numbers you’ll find on typical rhinoplasty sites. Thicker nasal tissue predominant in some ethnicities can cause the area to swell for longer than Caucasian patients, effectively prolonging your rhinoplasty recovery time. The difference is not drastic, however. Patients of all ethnic backgrounds can generally expect to feel comfortable going out in public 10-14 days after their ethnic rhinoplasty procedure.
You can ensure that your ethnic rhinoplasty recovery time is as fast as possible by carefully following your doctor’s directions for recovery. These instructions may include:
- Sleeping with your head elevated
- Eating a nutritious, low-sodium diet
- Wearing a nasal splint
- Icing the surgical area
- Breathing through your mouth for a few days after the procedure
During the first week after your procedure, you should focus on rest so that your body can focus on healing naturally. As such, you should prepare to take some time off of work during the first two weeks of your ethnic rhinoplasty recovery time.
