I wanted to find a surgeon that would make alterations to my nose look natural, leaving me with an overall better facial appearance. I found that surgeon- Dr. Ramtin Kassir. Dr. Kassir is not only a master of his craft, but also is an overall great guy, a true gentleman. Plus he also has a fun-loving personality which makes everyone around him feel at ease. To me, this is the perfect combination for a surgeon to have, because it makes a patient feel comfortable and confident.

Most African-American/black rhinoplasty (“nose job”) patients seek to improve the appearance of their nose without erasing their heritage and identity. Typically, requests include lifting the bridge, narrowing the nostrils, and enhancing the profile. It takes skill and sensitivity to achieve a cosmetic result that beautifies the face while respecting and preserving ethnicity.
There are technical challenges when refining an ethnic nose that deserve special consideration. A plastic surgeon needs to be aware of the fact that African-Americans often have broader and somewhat flatter noses than Europeans. They also have thicker skin (as do Hispanics) and this makes refining the nasal tip more challenging. In addition, African-American nasal bones are comparatively short, requiring special care.
