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 of Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas at his office in Park 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 his Park City office today to schedule an ethnic rhinoplasty consultation.

Eric is such a great doctor! He treated me as family and was very thorough and diligent. I was very nervous but he made me feel comfortable at all times especially when undertaking a 7 hour surgery. I flew in all the way from the East Coast to see him as I heard he was the best in his field. His staff is friendly and caring. You can tell he has a good heart. I recommend!

I am one month out from my procedure with Dr. Cerrati and could not be happier with my results. From my initial inquiry to today, both the doctor and the staff could not have been more helpful. Dr. Cerrati has a wonderful team that makes scheduling, payments, and follow up questions easy. The doctor himself is attentive, happy to answer questions and did a great job of listening to my concerns and ideas, while presenting his professional opinion in a respectful and helpful way. My recovery was a breeze, thanks to his careful techniques. At just one month, I am seeing a drastic improvement in both form and function. So thankful to have Dr. Cerrati based in my home of Utah, but I would have traveled across the country to see him!

Dr. Cerrati performed a facelift (w/ neck tightening), upper and lower blepharoplasty, and CO2 laser resurfacing for me in February 2021. I’m 3.5 months post op and the results have exceeded all my expectations; beyond what I ever could have imagined. I experienced minimal pain, swelling and bruising, after my 8 hour surgery and was ready to be seen in public in less than 10 days. Dr. Cerrati and his team are without question, second to none in their field. I have been treated with nothing but the utmost professionalism, compassion, patience, kindness and unconditional support from the beginning of my journey to today. Any questions or concerns I have ever expressed have ALWAYS been given the utmost respect and Dr. Cerrati pays attention to every detail in his patient care. His artistic talent and surgical skills are remarkable. In my opinion, he is a truly gifted plastic surgeon. The best you’ll find in the industry. If you’re considering any facial plastics procedures, Dr. Cerrati, and his team, is the place to come, even if it means traveling to do so. Thank you so much for changing my life for the better and giving me back my self confidence that I was sure I’d lost forever.

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!
