Ethnic rhinoplasty is a broad categorization of rhinoplasty which describes primarily patients of Asian, African and Hispanic descent. It is absolutely paramount to understand that noses vary substantially across races and that maintaining an individual, natural appearance is of utmost importance to all people.
It is the goal of St. Louis Facial Plastic Surgery to create a heavily personalized experience for each patient, considering their preferences, culture, and ethnicity. Preoperative computer imaging or “photo- morphing” is done with all rhinoplasty patients before surgery so that they may have an active role in
determining the desired outcome.
Dr. Steitz has written extensively on rhinoplasty surgery, including multiple on ethnic and Asian rhinoplasty, and completed a fellowship with Dean Toriumi at the University of Illinois-Chicago, studying advanced rhinoplasty techniques.
