As the central focal point of a person’s face, the nose can draw a great deal of attention to itself when out of balance with the rest of the features. While in the past plastic surgeons tended to implement a cookie-cutter approach that Westernized each patient’s results, today, doctors understand the importance of customizing their procedures to help preserve and honor the client’s unique ethnic and cultural heritage.

Dr. Fechner in Boston and Worcester performs ethnic rhinoplasty for patients of many different backgrounds, refining the nasal tip, bridge, and nostrils while safekeeping idiosyncratic beauty.

What is ethnic rhinoplasty?

Nasal shape is influenced not only by your immediate family but also by your place of birth and its climate. Yet regardless of background, when a patient is unhappy with their appearance, it can compromise their self-confidence and quality of life.

Ethnic rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that celebrates cultural differences while still providing the patient with relief from their aesthetic concerns. For instance, it is possible to refine a dorsal hump without necessarily making the nose appear Caucasian. As such, ethnic rhinoplasty requires a great deal of nuance and artistry, and Dr. Fechner is up for the task. He will carefully craft a treatment plan that preserves your heritage and maximizes your innate beauty and attractiveness.

What are the benefits of ethnic rhinoplasty?

  • Harmonizes and balances the features
  • Reshapes and refines the nasal bridge, tip, and nostrils
  • Creates a more proportionate nose for your face
  • Improves breathing and structural integrity
  • Corrects asymmetry
  • Enhances self-image and self-confidence
  • Cultural and ethnic identity is preserved
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking outcome

Who makes an ideal candidate?

Dr. Fechner performs ethnic rhinoplasty for patients with ancestry from all over the globe, including Middle Eastern, Hispanic, African-American, and Asian clients. Anyone who is troubled by imperfections in the nasal bridge, the tip, or the nostrils can benefit from Dr. Fechner’s artistry and skill in rhinoplasty.

Clients undergoing surgery should be non-smokers who are emotionally and physically healthy and who are free from any significant medical concerns that might interfere with their treatment. Additionally, patients should have realistic expectations for their results based on a private consultation with Dr. Fechner at his offices located near Boston and Worcester.

What can I expect after my procedure?

After ethnic rhinoplasty, you’ll need someone to drive you home and provide care for about 24 hours. You’ll need to get plenty of rest after your surgery. Dr. Fechner will provide a full aftercare plan with instructions for showering, sleeping, eating and drinking, resuming exercise, returning to work, and many other important details. He will also ensure that you have the proper pain medications to facilitate a comfortable recovery.

Swelling can last for some time, so it’s important that you remain patient and optimistic when viewing your new nose. Over time, a refined and improved shape will emerge, boosting your self-confidence.

WE ARE EXCITED TO WELCOME YOU BACK TO FECHNER MD!

On behalf of the entire team at Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we would like to take a moment to say thank you again for your loyalty and support during this unprecedented time. The past several months have been unlike anything we've ever experienced, and we're working hard to evolve so that we can continue to provide you with the patient experience you have come to expect from our practice.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa has taken extreme precautionary measures, in addition to following the most up to date CDC recommendations and state guidelines to maximize the health and safety of our patients, staff and facility. Our surgical center and medical spa remain committed to providing the best patient care, and we are actively working to take all necessary precautions as we plan to safely re-open our practice. Please help us continue to protect the health and well-being of our patients and workplace by cooperating with all of our precautionary measures and protocols against COVID-19 at your next appointment, or as you plan for your surgery.

 

WHAT ARE WE DOING TO KEEP YOU AND OUR STAFF SAFE?

As a fully accredited surgical facility, Fechner MD has always observed the highest level of safety and sanitation. In fact, as a surgeon, Dr. Fechner is an expert in infection control. We want to ensure that we are doing everything possible for our patients to safely return for surgical and medical spa treatments alike.

  • Our accredited practice is exclusively reserved for our patients and staff.
  • Our facility is in a single, free standing building only occupied by our practice. This allows us to limit foot traffic to our patients and staff only.

  • We closely monitor our staff for symptoms and elevated temperature daily.
  • We sterilize all our instruments in house further reducing potential exposure.

WHEN WILL FECHNER MD PLASTIC SURGERY & MEDICAL SPA OPEN?

Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
