Did you know that there are, in fact, two distinct approaches to rhinoplasty procedures? As you can see above, in advanced open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes an incision into the thin strip of skin at the base of the nostrils (the columella) and lifts the skin of the nose up and back to gain access...

CAN YOU TELL WHICH AFRICAN-AMERICAN CELEBRITIES HAVE HAD RHINOPLASTY PROCEDURES?

Sometimes by comparing before and after photographs of stars both pre- and post- nose-job surgery it is possible to see the difference the cosmetic change has made.

THE IMPORTANCE OF FINDING AN EXPERIENCED AFRICAN-AMERICAN RHINOPLASTY SPECIALIST SURGEON

In the aftermath of Michael Jackson’s celebrated and it is only fair to say unattractive rhinoplasty procedures many African-Americans were discouraged from having cosmetic facial surgery arguing that if someone as rich and famous as MJ could end up with less than satisfactory results, then what hope was there for non-celebrities? However, Michael Jackson first...

WHAT MAKES THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN RHINOPLASTY EXPERIENCE DIFFERENT?

Up till now there has been a scarcity of information dedicated to rhinoplasty procedures specifically aimed at African-American patients and those of other non-European racial backgrounds. This is because most of the literature out there was written for Caucasians who, until recently, constituted the largest percentage of the plastic surgery, and specifically the rhinoplasty, market.

AFRICAN AMERICAN RHINOPLASTY TECHNIQUES

Every individual rhinoplasty procedure is unique and depends on a wide number of varying factors including the changes and appearance the patient is hoping to achieve, the doctor’s technical ability and prowess at different surgical procedures, and the patient’s ethnicity and physical characteristics. Not all people seeking rhinoplasty are looking for a Caucasian-style, Greco-Roman nose

HOW IS AMERICAN-AMERICAN RHINOPLASTY DIFFERENT FROM NOSE SURGERY ON CAUCASIANS?

To suggest that there exists only one stereotypical type of nose within the African American population is to negate the multicultural background of many of those who consider themselves part of this group. This means we cannot talk about “African American rhinoplasty” per se but instead have to consider each patient on an individual basis.

Happy Clients


  • I am so thankful to have come across Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj of The Aesthetic Institute of New York & New Jersey. "Dr. S." (as I like to call him for obvious reasons, haha) is a Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, and it turns out he has an entire website dedicated to his work with African-American patients: www.africanamericanrhinoplasty.com. I was immediately impressed with the wealth of information that he has on his site, including information about his practice, his stellar credentials, his surgical inventions (i.e., the SLUPimpla...

  • I was terrified of having surgery but after two consultations with Dr. S., my anxiety was alleviated, and this was my biggest hurdle. I was able to see what my results would be after surgery through "computer imaging". He spent as much time with me as needed and said I could come back as many times as I wanted before making a decision. That was refreshing. I asked to speak with at least 3 other patients of Dr. S. and did. They shared my initial fear and they helped me by explaining their experiences from a patient's point of view! Dr. S. specia...

  • The doctor is very approachable and personable and I felt that he is really listening to me. He made every effort to be easily accessible via email or phone. He also followed me every step of the process, not only during the surgery but also during the recovery period.

  • Double Board Certified with specialized training and loads of experience in Nose Surgery. I was able to see and discuss my results beforehand thru computer imaging so I felt very comfortable with what my result would be. Having consulted with other Drs. who did not have same training, imaging and were twice the surgical cost, I made my decision.

  • Dr. S. is excellent. From the first visit to the follow-ups I always felt comfortable. Look great and feel great, have recommended him others. Really great bedside manner and I was not the best patient. Thanks Dr. S. I really appreciate your patience!!

  • I had a Rhinoplasty done by Dr. S. and he did exactly what I wanted, which was a custom bridge implant.

  • As a 74 year old African-American woman, I was apprehensive regarding the SLUPlift™ Surgery. In the past, when I discussed plastic surgery with family and friends they spoke negatively about the surgery. Eventually I decided it was something I wanted to do for myself. I found Dr. Slupchynskyj while surfing the Internet and reviewing several of his before and after photos. After meeting the Dr. he assured me that I would be OK — and he was correct. After the surgery I did not have to take any pain medication and I was out shopping within 4 d...
  • Worth It
    I am a 27 year old, African-American female from the Midwest and I just recently had a Rhinoplasty procedure performed on February 9, 2012. I had known for a long time that I wanted to have the procedure done to correct a bump in the bridge of my nose, reduce the width of my nose, as well as to refine my down-turned nasal tip. This was an operation that I was not going to trust to just anybody, so I spent countless hours researching and looking for a surgeon who had significant experience working with African-American patients. Because I liv...
