24 year old African-American female requesting Ethnic African-American Rhinoplasty. Her complaints were that her nose was too wide, the bridge and naso-frontal angle was low and wide and the tip of her nose was fat and bulbous.
Dr. Slupchynskyj performed an Open Rhinoplasty, Ethnic African-American Rhinoplasty. The bridge of her nose was augmented/raised using a custom carved silicone implant, SLUPimplant™. The bridge and naso-frontal angle was elevated to the appropriate height. The tip was refined by defatting the nasal tip fibrofatty tissue and a Septal Cartilage Strut Graft was used to re-support and rotate the tip. Also, a Shield Graft was sutured over the Septal Cartilage Shield Graft for further tip definition and refinement. To narrow the width of the nostrils a horizontal intra-sill incision was used to reduce the intra-nasal width.
Post-op pictures show the patient 2 months after surgery with increased bridge naso-frontal angle height, refined nasal tip and narrowed nostrils.
