30 year old African-American female complaining of a wide flat nose who sought Dr. Slupchynskyj to elevate her bridge, refine her tip and slightly narrow her nostrils. Dr. Slupchynskyj performed an Open Rhinoplasty, placing his custom carved silastic SLUPimplant™ to augment and narrow her nasal bridge. Dr. Slupchynskyj then employed his advanced proprietary three-tier technique to defat and sculpt her bulbous tip and narrow her nostrils horizontally. This patient is 3 months post-surgery and feels all her desired results were achieved while preserving her African-American features.
Ethnic African-American Rhinoplasty
31 year old African-American female seeking Dr. Slupchynskyj's Ethnic Rhinoplasty techniques to elevate her low and wide nasal bridge and refine her rounded nasal tip. Dr. Slupchynskyj performed an advanced Open Rhinoplasty using his custom carved silastic implant to refine and augment her nasal bridge. Dr. Slupchynskyj then defined her nasal tip by removing excess fatty tissue while sculpting and supporting the nasal tip cartilage strut grafts.
25 year old African-American female who underwent two previous nose surgeries with another Plastic Surgeon in New York in order to refine both her dorsum and bulbous nasal tip. This surgeon improperly placed a preformed silicone implant upside down in her Primary Rhinoplasty causing extrusion. During the Second Rhinoplasty, the preformed silicone implant was placed in the wrong tissue plane without suturing. This caused it to migrate. The patient suffered unnecessary complications twice and saw no satisfactory refinement of her dorsal width or of her nasal tip. Dr. Slupchynskyj performed her Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty using an Open Rhinoplasty technique, his custom carved implant (SLUPimplant™) and successfully defatted and sculpted her nasal tip. This patient is very happy and will continue to see further refinement once her swelling completely resolves.
Best African-American Rhinoplasty Revision
The above patient is a 26 year old African-American female who had two previous Rhinoplasty procedures with another surgeon in 2006 and 2008. In 2006, her surgeon placed a Gore-Tex Implant with the intent of augmenting her low nasal bridge. Instead, the improper placement of the implant resulted in a Pollybeak Deformity. The same surgeon performed her first Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty in 2008. That procedure yielded no discernible results and left the patient very dissatisfied. She decided to have her final Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty with Dr. Slupchynskyj and is very happy with her results.
