The Middle Eastern Nose
There clearly are a number of nasal characteristics found in Middle Eastern populations that encourage patients to seek some changes.

Characteristics of the Middle Eastern Nose
Features commonly seen in the Middle Eastern nose include a significant nasal hump, a long or droopy orientation with the tip plunging downward, and also, at times, a wide or bulbous tip. The wide or bulbous tip may be due to thick skin or wide underlying tip cartilages.
A Personalized Treatment Plan
A majority of Middle Eastern patients seeking surgical changes are young females. But it is not uncommon for male patients to desire rhinoplasty for these characteristics as well. An especially detailed consultation and discussion is necessary in this group since some patients want to retain certain ethnic traits and male patients want to retain the masculinity of their facial features.
Fortunately there are many options for the patient—choices about how much and where a dorsal hump is lowered and to what degree the nose is shortened, among others. A detailed analysis and thorough discussion are required to ensure that as many details of the surgery as possible are customized to the patient's desires.
Additional Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Often problems such as crookedness or breathing difficulties are addressed at the same time as other characteristics.
