It is not possible to identify an entire region with one type of nose. Instead, there is a range of noses found within this area. The Middle East, including Dubai, Saudia Arabia, Persia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan have various customs and aesthetics which patients find desirable. Even two patients of a similar background may want a very different look depending on which part of the country they live in. For example, a Persian patient in Los Angeles may have a very different opinion about his/her nose than one living in New York. The key here is to understand what are each patient’s goals and what look they are trying to avoid, which is usually the overly obvious rhinoplasty.

Does Dr. Shah understand my aesthetic?
During the consultation, Dr. Shah uses a variety of maneuvers to help him learn what a patient likes and doesn’t like about their nose. He has extensive experience working with Middle Eastern noses and has patients who seek his expertise from afar for his approach. If during the consultation a patient does not feel comfortable with the approach recommended or morphs provided, Dr. Shah does not recommend surgery for them.
Are Dr. Shah’s techniques published on his website?
Some of Dr. Shah’s techniques are indeed published on this website. However, a good number of his techniques are not described elsewhere, including the literature. Dr. Shah will explain his approach during the consultation if asked.
Can I fly in and out the same day for Dr. Shah?
No, patients must recover for one week in the area.
