Indian rhinoplasty, performed in clients of East Indian descent, is a variant of ethnic rhinoplasty and you may want to have a look at “Ethnic Rhinoplasty – Nose Job in Diverse Ethnicities”.
Of all ethnic rhinoplasties, indian rhinoplasty may be the one with the mildest manifestations of the universal ethnic rhinoplasty characteristics of thick skin, low bridge, wide base, underprojecting and ill defined tip and wide bony and cartilaginous vaults.
Never should there be any temptation nor perceived necessity to use synthetic implants for the bridge. In fact, in a few instances of Indian rhinoplasty lowering of the bridge may be necessary due to small humps or an overprojecting septum close to the tip, a step virtually unheard of in any other ethnic rhinoplasty.
The particular problems in Indian rhinoplasty are the thick and oily skin and the lack of tip projection and definition in a generally somewhat wide, occasionally bulbous tip. The tip may need some upward rotation. The true difficulty is to get a more sculpted tip with better projection underneath the thick skin envelope. Usually there is enough material available from the cartilage of the septum to build up the tip giving it more projection and definition, only occasionally are additional donor sites necessary. The width of the nose can be narrowed using standard techniques. Moderate narrowing of the nasal base is often necessary, but does not pose the sometimes insurmountable difficulties encountered in black rhinoplasty. Massive augmentation of a deficient bridge as in Asian rhinoplasty or black rhinoplasty is a rarity in Indian rhinoplasty.
Indian rhinoplasty is the variant of ethnic rhinoplasty closest to what Western rhinoplasty surgeons are used to dealing with. The broad, ill defined and somewhat bulbous tip is not uncommon in Caucasian rhinoplasty. While by no means easy, Indian rhinoplasty is the most manageable of all ethnic rhinoplasty varieties and when using the body’s own cartilage for tip or bridge augmentation very natural results can be obtained without “westernizing” the Indian nose.
