Hispanic Rhinoplasty or Latino Rhinoplasty is a form of ethnic rhinoplasty performed to improve symmetry and augment the nose. Considering that the Latino face has a different aesthetic form and appeal in contemporary society, Hispanic nose jobs are performed to improve the frontal and profile views of the nose. Latino noses often are over projected due to excess cartilage in the septum and bone of the nose. Removal of the hump of the nose is common. Careful and refined rasping of the bone and cartilage can be performed, but the plastic surgeon must be careful to reconstruct any collapsed cartilage. Using cartilage grafting from the septum of the nose or from rib cartilage or auricular (ear) cartilage, the nose can be supported to ensure good breathing and function. Nasal tip symmetry is important for Hispanic rhinoplasty. The nasal tip cartilages can be further straightened by aligning the domes of the nasal tip (alar cartilages). Hispanic rhinoplasty is popular in San Antonio and Texas given our rich Latino heritage. Hispanic rhinoplasty San Antonio Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jose Barrera will provide a thorough consultation and review your desires in achieving a straighter and pleasing nose.
