27 year old Hispanic female seeking Ethnic Hispanic Rhinoplasty. She was not happy with height of her bridge, the bulbosity and thickness of her nasal tip. The patient also had a severely deviated nasal septum with severe nasal obstruction. The patient considered several different nasal implants but chose Dr. Slupchynskyj's custom carved silastic implant because of a very low complication rate vs. Medpor and other traditional silicone implants.
Dr. Slupchynskyj performed an Open Rhinoplasty and placed a custom carved nasal silastic implant, "SLUPimplant™" in a precisely dissected dorsal bridge pocket and secured with sutures to ensure ideal placement. Adequate height of the nasal bridge and naso-frontal angle was achieved with the SLUPimplant™. The tip was reconstructed the tip with vertical dome division and cephalic strip technique. A cartilage strut graft and shield cartilage graft was used to refine the nasal tip. The patient was very pleased with her Ethnic Hispanic Rhinoplasty.
