A nose should look natural after a rhinoplasty, meaning it should look as if you could have been born with it. There should be no telltale signs of surgery. There are two reasons noses do not look natural, and Dr. Teitelbaum avoids them both. The first is that the nose does not belong on the face, such as a Northern European nose on a Chinese person or an Irish nose on a Middle Eastern person. Dr. Teitelbaum did so-called “ethnic rhinoplasties” years ago on non-whites trying to look white, but he does not do those any longer. Such results do not look attractive. It is however sometimes attractive for a black patient to have surgery to make their nose look like a more attractive black nose, but any attempt to go down the “Michael Jackson path” is always ill-advised. The second reason that noses may not look natural is that the nose itself looks like it has been operated upon, such as having the tip turned excessively up, having the tip overly narrowed and pinched, or having “grafts” in the nose that become displaced or irregular.
