Very few websites or books will describe Caucasian rhinoplasty. It is most likely due to the fact that Caucasian noses fall into a range of noses which may need projection, reduction, rotation, or a variety of changes. In addition, Caucasian can describe a wide variety of ethnicities which have very different, yet still attractive appearances. (i.e. Sweden, Italy, Ireland, etc) Perhaps the most important aspect is for the surgeon to understand each patient’s aesthetic goals and desired aesthetic outcomes in the context of their ethnic background. Most of the time this is facilitated through an in person consultation and the use of computer imaging to help understand what type of changes each person is seeking.
