Different ethnicities are often genetically predisposed to have noses of a certain size or shape. Since the nose is such a defining feature, this can be a source of ethnic pride for some, while others wish their noses were less defining. For example, people of Asian descent often have smaller and more depressed noses. In contrast, people of African descent often have noses that flare and display a bulbous tip. Of course, mixes between ethnicities can produce noses of every conceivable shape and size.

Whatever type or shape of nose you have from your own personal genetics, your reasons for being unhappy with it are perfectly valid. This is why Dr. Eric Cerrati offers Asian or ethnic rhinoplasty as a cosmetic option for residents in and around his offices in South Jordan and Salt Lake City. There are many ways to change the appearance of the human nose, and even slight changes can have an enormous impact on your appearance.

Ethnic Nose Job Surgery

A common complaint of many who desire ethnic nose job surgery is that their nose is overly ethnic, meaning it looks “too Asian” or “too African” or “too whatever.” Flat nose bridges can be enhanced and raised, flaring nostrils can be tapered, nose tips can be altered in a number of ways and more refinements are available. Dr. Cerrati will consult with you at length to design the shape and size you desire for your nose post-surgery.

The main concern with ethnic rhinoplasty is making sure the cosmetic changes still fit your facial features. It is impossible, and totally impractical, to create a Caucasian nose on an Asian face. The changes you desire to your nose must also be balanced with your other facial features for overall symmetry and beauty.

Dr. Cerrati is a double board certified and fellowship trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has the experience and skills necessary to perform Asian/ethnic nose surgeries. He will help you design and enjoy an outcome that will be pleasing and functional. Contact either of his two Utah offices today to schedule an ethnic rhinoplasty consultation.

Choosing Dr. Cerrati to perform my rhinoplasty was the best decision I ever made! I had consultations with many other surgeons and he was who I felt most comfortable with. He really listened to what I wanted and made it look very natural. He fixed my deviated septum and performed some cosmetic work. My recovery was such an easy process! I had 0 pain and minimal bruising. I love the outcome of my nose, both functionally and structurally. I highly recommend Dr. Cerrati, you wont regret it.

Working with Dr. Cerrati and his assistant Hailey, has been the most wonderful experience! It is clear Dr. Cerrati cares about helping you achieve your dreams and Hailey is the sweetest, most helpful & awesome gal ever! They both spent so much time listening and understanding exactly what I wanted done with my nose and forehead and spent time making sure I was cared for and heard. I love my results and am so happy that I chose to go with this team. I plan to continue using them for my lip and cheek injection and suggesting them to all my friends moving forward- I am soo happy I found them!

I would highly recommend Dr. Cerrati based on my experience with both him and his office staff. He is very professional and a perfectionist When it comes to his patients results. I researched several surgeons, and ultimately decided on Dr. Cerrati based on his reviews and before and after pictures. One month post rhinoplasty, I am no longer self conscious. I’m loving my results ( and I’m very picky) . If anyone is worried , rest assured you Will love Dr. Cerrati and his staff!

Dr. Cerrati is AMAZING at what he does! He is very professional, personable, and always makes sure you are comfortable during your procedures. After seeing 3 other physicians and having procedures done to help open my nasal passages, Dr. Cerrati came up with a different solution that actually worked. He is very meticulous and precise with all of his work and my facial injections were nearly painless. He does great work, I highly recommend!

Dr. Cerrati, Nani and the entire staff made my day today! I put my wallet on the hood of my car and drove off with it there on my way to my appointment this morning. By the time I realized what I had done my wallet was long gone. I ended up being 20 minutes late for my appointment (which I absolutely hate) and the staff was nothing but understanding and so so nice when I told them what happened. It was my first experience in the office but absolutely not my last! Not only am I impressed with the way I was treated but they did an amazing job!! My appointment was short and sweet with a job well done and I couldn't help but leave with happy tears in my eyes. Kind people are the best!!!
