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.

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!!!

I had rhinoplasty with Dr. Cerrati. From my initial consultation though my follow ups, Dr. Cerrati listened to me. I got the exact result I had hoped for which was quite subtle. My recovery was way better than I expected. I needed one pain pill and was not in much pain at all. His MA came into the office on Xmas Eve to remove my cast so I could be out and about without a cast. I also had very little bruising. His staff is awesome. Haley was so responsive in helping me to schedule surgery. She actually responded to my email at 6:15 am and answered every inquiry I had. I had a nosebleed unrelated to my surgery and Dr. Cerrati made sure to squeeze me in on one of surgery dates just to make sure everything was okay. He is calm, knowledgeable and skilled. I was completely at ease throughout the process. I researched thoroughly before choosing him. I liked that he is younger with updated techniques and that he specializes in facial surgery. Highly recommend.

I came to see Dr. Cerrati after having a total Thyroidectomy earlier this year. The surgery didn't go as planned and I had to have a few other emergency surgeries right after. The scarring from all the surgeries didn't look very good and I had some tethering underneath that needed to be taken care of. Dr. Cerrati was great about explaining everything that would be done to remove the scar tissue and reclose the skin. I also had lots of anxiety about having another surgery since I had such a bad experience last time. Dr. Cerrati and the staff were very understanding and accommodating about my anxiety. I am very pleased with the way my scar looks now. I am confident that the scar will fade considerably and it will hardly be noticeable. I do feel like there were some communication issues when I would call in but I believe that it was not the doctor's fault and that it was more overall staffing issues. Just make sure you talk to the right people and get the phone numbers for his nurse and then all will go great!
