Structural Rhinoplasty in Latin American Patients
12 June 2013 (online)
Patients coming from Latin America are also known as mestizos or Hispanics. They are a combination of different ethnic groups where predominant facial features will vary depending on where the patient is coming from. A structural approach to the nose will be presented showing how techniques using sutures and grafts are used to reinforce and reconstruct existing structures achieving cosmetic long-term results. The surgical goal is to achieve a more defined looking nose that does not look overdone, is attractive, and retains ethnic characteristics.
