What is African American Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a popular cosmetic procedure that is designed to enhance the appearance of the nose by addressing the size or shape of the nose. The nose is the centerpiece of the face, and a rhinoplasty often helps improve the overall balance of the face by producing a nose that compliments the rest of the facial features. Dr. Nia Banks offers African American rhinoplasty techniques to ensure that the unique ethnic features of the nose are preserved while addressing the cosmetic concerns that a patient has.

How Much Does African American Rhinoplasty Cost in Washington, D.C.?

Each rhinoplasty procedure requires a unique approach depending on the patient’s treatment goals. As such, the cost of this procedure can vary from patient to patient. Since it is cosmetic surgery, it is typically not covered by health insurance. To learn more about the cost of your rhinoplasty or the financing options we offer, call us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nia Banks.

What are the Benefits of African American Rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty procedure can help patients address cosmetic concerns in the nose that make them self-conscious or unhappy with their appearance. It can also be used to correct breathing difficulties or repair damage that resulted from a broken nose. Whatever your concerns are regarding the nose, Dr. Banks can help you achieve flawless results without compromising your unique qualities.

How is an African American Rhinoplasty Performed?

During a rhinoplasty, discreet incisions are made inside the nostrils or along the base of the nose. Through these incisions, Dr. Banks can address the bridge, nostrils, and tip of the nose to produce your desired results. A rhinoplasty takes approximately three hours and is performed with the aid of anesthesia to ensure that the patient remains completely comfortable throughout the procedure.

How Much Downtime Can I Expect After a Rhinoplasty?

The recovery following a rhinoplasty typically lasts about two weeks. You will have to wear a splint and nasal packing following your procedure to ensure that the nose heals properly. During recovery, you may need to avoid exercise and other strenuous activities. We also recommend that you avoid any activities that could injure your nose for several weeks after your surgery.


If you are considering a rhinoplasty, you can trust Dr. Nia Banks to deliver beautiful results while carefully preserving the distinct nasal features that African Americans possess.
