ASSYRIAN RHINOPLASTY IN CHICAGO, IL
Assyrians hail from the geographic region of Iraq, although the Assyrian empire had far reaches throughout the Middle East. As such, patients of Assyrian background have features classically seen in the broader category of Middle Eastern patients. Chicago has one of the larger Assyrian populations in the United States. Over 80,000 people in Chicago identify themselves as Assyrian, making it the largest in the United States. In fact, there are more Assyrians living in Europe or the United States now than in the Middle East. Often, Assyrian citizens seek help with their noses and desire a shape and form that are natural and and in tune with their culture. Dr. Anil Shah specializes in Assyrian Rhinoplasty and other ethnic rhinoplasty procedures.
Assyrian noses vary greatly from patient to patient. In some cases, the nose can look petite with thin skin. In other cases, the nose can look over emphasized, drawing attention to its prominence. The challenge for Dr. Shah is to work within this variety and create a nose which fits a patient’s identity while enhancing their appearance.
The bridge of the nose should work in tandem with the other facial features and vary from patient to patient. A petite female will often look better with a lower bridge of her nose, depending on her forehead shape and facial shape and length. A taller male will require a higher, stronger dorsum.
Many patients of Assyrian heritage seek Dr. Shah’s services for rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is the art of changing the shape of the nose to a more attractive form. Dr. Shah works with each patient to craft a nose which will fit with a person’s identity and increase their overall attractiveness.
