Patient Stories

A hairdresser can probably tell you how many haircuts she has given during her career. A college professor can tell you how many students he has taught over the years. Similarly, any Plastic Surgeon should be able to tell you—accurately—how many Rhinoplasty Surgeries he or she has performed. This is important to know since you want to ensure that the doctor has performed enough Rhinoplasties that he or she will be able to handle any issues that may occur during your surgery. But don’t rely on numbers alone. Someone who has learned to tie their shoes incorrectly may tie them that way a thousand times. But someone who learned to tie shoes correctly may have only tied them a hundred times.

A Plastic Surgeon will also know how many of his or her surgeries resulted in complications and how they were handled. He or she should also tell you how satisfied his patients have been since most people aren’t shy about sharing their pleasure or displeasure with the end results. But keep in mind: Your surgeon can’t share patient files with you because specific patient information is confidential and protected under The Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act, also known as HIPAA.

Trust is an important issue for patients who consult with a surgeon about a cosmetic procedure. Patients who choose to have elective Cosmetic Surgery seldom make that decision lightly, so they must develop a relationship with the surgeon in order to achieve the results they want. The expertise that Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj displays in treating Ethnic Rhinoplasty cases extends beyond clinical case studies and professional certifications. Dr. Slupchynskyj has also earned the trust and respect of hundreds of patients.

If you are considering having a Revision Rhinoplasty to fix the results of a previous operation, the Plastic Surgeon must not only know how to perform a successful Rhinoplasty, but also he must know how to handle the lingering results of previous surgeries.

  • I’m a good-looking, middle-aged African-American male. I have always had an issue with the thickness of my nose. I've considered surgery for years, but was always overly-concerned with what the reaction would be toward a black man getting Cosmetic Surgery. I finally decided I have always lived my life on my own terms. Why stop now? I ventured out to find the right Dr. I was referred to a well-known Cosmetic Surgeon in Philadelphia. My interaction with him was the most humiliating experience I’ve ever had with a medical professional. The Dr....

  • I am so thankful to have come across Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj of The Aesthetic Institute of New York and 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 SLUPi...

  • 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...
  • 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...
