Persian Rhinoplasty is a procedure that falls under the umbrella of traditional Rhinoplasty, which is performed to transform the nose. Many people who undergo the procedure feel that their nose is too large for their face. The end goal of rhinoplasty is to restore the ideal balance and proportion of your nose with the rest of your appearance.
Persian Rhinoplasty is a sub-category among the many ethnic specific rhinoplasty procedures available. Why do specific rhinoplasties exist? Because many clients want procedures that consider the specific features, specifically nasal characteristics, of a particular ethnic group, as altering an appearance too dramatically comes with many cultural ramifications clients want to avoid.
Toronto’s diversity is well represented in Dr. Philip Solomon’s patient roster at the Rhinoplasty and Facial Surgery Centre just off Yonge Street in Old Thornhill.
“Toronto has a huge Persian population,” says Dr. Solomon. “And my practice is in the heart of it.”
According to Dr. Solomon, Persian patients make up to 30% of his practice. Within Toronto’s Persian community, he is recognized as an expert in Rhinoplasty for Persians.
“Many of my happiest patients are young Persian girls who undergo transformative Rhinoplasty Surgery,” says Dr. Solomon. Persian culture is very accepting of Rhinoplasty, according to Dr. Solomon. The patients he’s seen are often knowledgeable, with relatives who have had rhinoplasties performed in Toronto and Tehran. According to Dr. Solomon, Persian women are natural beauties who pursue Rhinoplasty to reduce the appearance a dominant nose and create greater facial harmony.
Persian Rhinoplasty Surgical Techniques In Toronto
Dr. Solomon’s experience of thousands of rhinoplasties and extensive experience with Persian patients have earned him a reputation as a Persian Rhinoplasty expert. He has been quoted in the media as a Rhinoplasty expert, and specifically asked for comments regarding non-Caucasian rhinoplasties.
“Persians are an interesting case. They have slightly thicker skin and are often looking to have a relatively significant change so that their nose balances with their other facial features, such as large eyes and high cheek bones,” says Dr. Solomon.
It is also important to note that the goal is not to create a Caucasian or “western” nose, rather to celebrate their identity and create harmony in their features, according to Dr. Solomon. It is important to find a surgeon who has a firm understanding of the unique structural nuances and features of the Persian nose and how it is unique from others. This ensures that the end result won’t look overdone or unnatural. Indeed, it is important that the procedure creates a result that complements and enhances your existing facial appearances while ensuring the unique features of your face are well preserved.
Your unique anatomy and goals will form the basis of your Rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Solomon will take care to apprise you of the risks and benefits of Rhinoplasty and what is achievable and realistic. A realistic approach to any plastic surgery is to seek improvements rather than perfection.
Rhinoplasty In Toronto Vs. Tehran
“I have seen nice Rhinoplasty results from patients treated in Iran, and there are, without a doubt, good Rhinoplasty surgeons in Tehran,” Dr. Solomon says to Persians contemplating travel to Iran for their Rhinoplasty. “But there are advantages to having surgery in Toronto.”
For one, Dr. Solomon has been performing Rhinoplasty for over a decade and is very familiar with the unique sensibilities of his Persian patients. Rhinoplasty is also a complicated procedure with approximately ten percent of cases requiring a second procedure for an optimal outcome. In such cases, patients who travelled to Iran would have to travel yet again or find another surgeon locally in Toronto , which could be more costly still.
Dr. Solomon Is Experienced In Both Primary And Revision Rhinoplasty
“I frequently see patients for revision of rhinoplasties done years ago in Iran,” says Dr. Solomon.
Over-reduction of nasal bones and “polybeak”, which results from an under-correction of the bridge, are the most common problems Dr. Solomon sees in his practice. Pinched nasal tips resulting in breathing problems are also commonly seen by Dr. Solomon.
Toronto has the medical expertise and a large Persian community that has created a lot of demand for this procedure here. For patients seeking ethnic rhinoplasty and to obtain the best possible outcome ensure your Persian Rhinoplasty is done by a specialist.
What Is Involved In A Persian Rhinoplasty Operation?
Much like traditional rhinoplasty, Persian Rhinoplasty involves both an internal and external approach. The choice will depend on the desired results and which is best able to deliver them. The internal approach involves modifying the underlying nasal bone and cartilage through some combination of reshaping, augmenting or reducing it. The external approach, on the other hand, is more commonly used. The technique allows rhinoplasty surgeons to make major changes to the anatomy of the nose.
During rhinoplasty, the nasal bridge of the nose is also commonly reduced. This part of the nose is made up of both bone (the upper bridge) and cartilage (the lower). The bone is reduced through shaving it down with an instrument referred to as a nasal rasp. The cartilage is reduced with a scalpel.
Who Should Get Persian Rhinoplasty?
If you are of Persian descent and have concerns about how your nose looks, schedule a consultation to find out if a Persian Rhinoplasty is right for your aesthetic goals. You should be over 18 years old, preferably, a non-smoker and in general good health.

After the first week, most people feel comfortable going out in public. These issues are mostly cosmetic and most people are surprised at how little they feel the effects of the procedure.
Is There Any Risk Of Complication?
The majority of patients who undergo rhinoplasty are happy with their results and experience nothing out of the ordinary. However, any medical procedure comes with risk. You should make sure you choose a reputable and experienced surgeon to minimize the likelihood of any of the following occurring.
- Nosebleeds. During the week after a rhinoplasty, some patients experience nosebleeds. While pressure and ice are normally enough to put an end to them, they sometimes require nasal packing inside the nose. Very rarely, hospitalization or a blood transfusion may be required.
- Impaired breathing. This is normally the result of an inexperienced surgeon. If the nose is over reduced, significant nasal problems can occur which are similar to nasal blockages. This can be improved with further surgery in order to rebuild the affected region.
- Infection. Although quite uncommon, infection after the procedure has been known to occur Symptoms include some nasal redness and pain in the sinuses or the nose’s soft tissues. It can be treated with antibiotics.
- Altered Sensation. Like with any surgery, there can be some altered sensation in the skin around the nose afterwards. These can cause numbness, sensitivity and tenderness in the skin. They normally subside after 3-6 months.
