Rhinoplasty in Middle East is becoming increasingly popular due to host of factors – cultural changes, awareness and media exposure etc. Omani Arabic nose, (in a population of mixed ethnicity of Arabs, Zanzibari and Balushi tribes) is characterized by moderate to thick skin, weak cartilages, and bony –cartilaginous humps. Heavy, boxy tip, wide nasal pyramid, deviated nose profile with severe septal deformities are common presentations. Unlike Caucasian and rest of Middle Eastern noses, Omani noses are not homogenous; hence the operating surgeon needs thorough preoperative analysis and surgical planning and dexterity. Awareness of ethnicity and aesthetic demands of Omani patients are much different from other populations. Dr.Amar Singh will share his rich experience of such cases.
