Patients who are good candidates for African-American Rhinoplasty Surgery are namely individuals who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose, who are in good health physically and emotionally, and are at least 15 years old. Noses come in many shapes and sizes, some of which are not in proportion with the rest of the facial features. A nose may naturally be too long, too short, have a drooping nasal tip or a round and undefined tip, a nasal dorsal hump (bump) or it may be crooked. Noses can have a very flat bridge or even excessive nasal width. There are numerous types and some may be a result of injury or even previous Rhinoplasty Surgery. African-American Rhinoplasty Surgeon, Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj, respects all of his patients’ aesthetic goals and assists them in developing realistic expectations.
Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj has performed thousands of Ethnic Nose Surgeries with no complications. Although uncommon, Dr. Slupchynskyj always reviews all and any risks associated with surgery during the patient’s initial consultation. Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery complications can arise when a Rhinoplasty Surgeon is overly aggressive when removing bone or cartilage, or if an implant used for augmenting the nasal dorsal bridge is improperly placed, or the wrong type of implant was used. Learn about nasal implant complications.
Rhinoplasty Surgery has a less than 1% risk of infection and even antibiotics are usually not necessary after a typical procedure.
Sometimes the septum, or the bony structure that separates the right and left nostril, is crooked or become deviated. This can be something a person is born with, or it can be a direct result of trauma. Septolasty Surgery is a procedure to repair a deviated or crooked septum. This procedure may help diminish the issues related to a deviated septum, such as sinus problems, trouble breathing, or stuffiness. Dr. Slupchynskyj repairs numerous deviated septums, resulting in restored nasal functionality, (i.e. breathing). Many of his patients request to have a Septoplasty completed simultaneously with their Rhinoplasty.
Dr. Slupchynkskyj does not use nasal packing. Many Plastic Surgeons, however, do. Nasal packing is quite possibly the most uncomfortable portion of an African-American Rhinoplasty procedure. Nasal packing is gauze or cotton that is inserted into the nasal chambers to achieve homeostasis, (i.e. hinder bleeding and dripping). Due to his specific Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty techniques, Dr. Slupchynskyj’s patients seldom endure bleeding during or after surgery; consequently, they do not require any materials, such as packing or tissue glue to stop excessive bleeding or dripping.
“Closed,” or Endonasal Rhinoplasty is a technique used primarily when altering the dorsum of the nose, (i.e. reducing a boney hump). With Closed Rhinoplasty, incisions are limited to the inside of the nose only, resulting in internal scarring, which is not visible. Most Body Plastic Surgeons (not rigorously trained in Rhinoplasty or Facial Plastic Surgery, as are Facial Plastic Surgeons) prefer the Closed method of Rhinoplasty, since it requires less surgical expertise; however, it limits direct visualization of the nasal anatomy. Meaning, it is more difficult to perform more complex surgery, such as nasal tip refinement and good results may be sullied. Dr. Slupchynskyj performs both Closed and Open Rhinoplasty in New York and prefers the Closed approach for minor nasal correction cases, such as a simple hump reduction.
“Open” or External Rhinoplasty is a complex surgical technique used for more difficult cases involving bridge augmentation, altering the tip of the nose or revision surgery. Although an incision is made between the nostrils on the outside of the nose, an extremely experienced Facial Plastic Surgeon ensures that the incision leaves an undetectable scar.
Dr. Slupchynskyj‘s patients are typically ready to return to work within 7 to 10 days after surgery. Patients are advised take about two weeks without exercising and engaging in other strenuous physical activities.
As a result of his precise surgical techniques, Dr. Slupchynskyj’s patients normally experience little bruising, if any, and minimal swelling following African-American Rhinoplasty Surgery. Should any bruising occur, it typically vanishes within 5 to 7 days.
Smoking can lead to healing complications since the blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients to the tissues are negatively affected by smoking. It is recommended that you stop smoking for at least 2 weeks before surgery to reduce the risk of these complications, and at least 2 weeks after the procedure.
A graft is a piece of cartilage taken from the patient’s septum, or sometimes from other parts of the body such the ear or ribs. There are even customized silastic implants that can be used to act as a graft.
During a Primary African-American Rhinoplasty, a graft may be used to help define and strengthen the nose, especially noses that have thick skin. If the patient desired a higher nasal bridge, or dorsal augmentation, a graft would be used to provide support and shape to the bridge. Saddle Nose deformities and some Primary Ethnic Rhinoplasties are a few examples of when a graft or implant might be used.
Ethnic Cosmetic Nose Surgery intends to reduce excess cartilage and bone in the nose, removing irregularities and bumps to deliver a straightened, smooth and usually smaller appearance. Adding tissue to enhance certain features of the nose is another possibility. The overall trend in modern Rhinoplasty is moving away from over-reduction of tissue, which can inhibit the ability to breathe and towards individualized treatment of each sector of the nose to give a balanced and refined look without compromising function. You deserve individualized treatment by an adept African-American Rhinoplasty Specialist in Manhattan, not a “one-size-fits-all” surgeon who will slap on a generic procedure with little concern for how the nose complements your features. Dr. Slupchynskyj understands that the wishes of each New York Female Rhinoplasty and Male Rhinoplasty patient are different.
Usually, Rhinoplasty lasts from 1 to 3 hours depending on the complexity of the condition of the nose. Most patients have sedation prior to and during the procedure, while some patients request General Anesthesia. Nearly all Rhinoplasty operations are completed as outpatient surgeries.
The condition described is usually associated with a deviated septum or a bent internal framework of the nose. This often results from trauma such as a broken nose, but many patients with this condition cannot recall an episode where this might have occurred. The condition described in this question, however, could also result from allergies or the two conditions existing simultaneously. Careful examination is needed before surgery to separate the two conditions. While individual insurance policies can vary, functional surgery to improve breathing is considered a covered benefit in many group policies. If additional correction of a cosmetic deformity of the nose is done at the same time, the cost of this part of the procedure is usually not covered by insurance. While many policies differ in New York City, Ethnic Rhinoplasty is a worthwhile option to discuss with your insurance, so that you can better understand the cost of Nose Surgery in Manhattan.
Generally, most or all of the stitches associated with African-American Rhinoplasty are concealed on the inside of the nostril. While external incisions hidden in the creases where the nose meets the cheek can be used to narrow the nose, incisions on the bridge or tip are typically not used in Ethnic Cosmetic Nose Surgery.
In general, our noses tend to elongate as we enter the middle years of our life and drooping of the tip of the nose can happen in the later years, as elasticity wanes from the body. While undergoing a Cosmetic Rhinoplasty as a teenager or young adult will not preclude the effects of aging on the nose, the final shape that results from Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery is expected to last a lifetime and the regrowth of bumps and deformities corrected by the operation is a rare occurrence.
