Dr. Kaplan, New Jersey’s leading ethnic nose job surgeon, understands that most of his Hispanic patients share similar nasal characteristics, including:

  • Bulbous nasal tip
  • Thick nasal skin

Features of the Hispanic Nose

There are three types of Hispanic noses: Castilian, Mestizo, and Mexican-American. Please read below the features of each of these three types of noses below:

The Castilian nose

The Castilian nose is often found on people of Spanish descent. The tip of the nose usually has an average projection and the bridge of the nose tends to be higher.

The Mestizo nose

The Mestizo nose typically is characterized by weaker cartilage  with much thicker skin with prominent sebaceous glands.

The Mexican-American nose

The Mexican-American nose, is often a combination of the Mestizo nose and the Castilian nose. The bridge might be an average height, but the tip tends to droop.

From three of these these Hispanic nose categories, the Mestizo nose and the Mexican-American nose require a highly skilled nose job surgeon to perform surgery. Dr. Kaplan, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in New Jersey has performed many successful nose surgeries on Hispanic and Latin American patients.
