Question : Can you perform rhinoplasty on an African American without scars showing? I form large scars and really don’t want any scars on my face.
Answer : African American rhinoplasty and African Canadian rhinoplasty need to be done by people with special expertise in this type of surgery. It is important to make sure that there are no scars on the face which will cause permanent disfigurement. It is important to place the scars in the nose so that they can be hidden and the results can be very, very pleasing. Dark skin types tend to scar with thicker scars and less favorable scars, so consideration and knowledge to place the scars in an appropriate position is very, very important.
