Looking at my new nose for the first time was such an overwhelming and joyous experience for me that I cried. I’ve always wanted to 'fix’ my nose since I was a teenager, I always hated taking pictures and the first thing I always looked at when I met someone was their nose. Dr. Kassir has helped me in more ways than he can imagine! I’m so blessed to have found such an amazing doctor who is not only knowledgeable but is artistic and really takes the time to match your new nose to the features of your face. I feel like 100 pounds have been lifted off my shoulders. I now finally will never have to worry about how I’m going to style my hair to hide my profile and that’s just the honest truth. Another plus is that I can finally breath correctly out of my nose, too! Thank you again Dr. Kassir, you are truly talented and very much appreciated.

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.
