A Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon in private practice in New York City, Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj performs hundreds of Cosmetic Surgery procedures a year on African-American patients. After being informed of an overwhelming number of discouraged Ethnic and African-American patients complained that they had nowhere to turn for even basic information to answer their specific Cosmetic Surgery questions, he felt compelled to write an honest consumer guide to address their specific concerns, requests and questions. As a Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Slupchynskyj believes it is imperative to educate patients about the multitude of cosmetic procedures available.
The discussion of Cosmetic Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty) for African-American and Ethnic patients brings up many hot-button issues involving race, gender, and conflicting standards of beauty. The purpose behind this book is to take a serious, realistic look at the growing practice of Cosmetic Surgery of the Nose (commonly known as a "Nose Job") for patients of African-American descent, as well as for those of mixed or other ethnicities. While this book is not intended to address the sensitive political issues that the idea of Ethnic Rhinoplasty can bring up, it is intended to educate prospective patients as to what they can expect before, during and after the procedure.
Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj wrote African-American and Ethnic Rhinoplasty to provide patients with a comprehensive handbook on Rhinoplasty that features essential topics such as: The history of Rhinoplasty. Subtle yet noticeable differences with the nasal compositions between African-American patients and those of Caucasian, East Asian and other Ethnic groups. The book examines the progression of Rhinoplasty techniques over decades. Several of Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj's Revision Rhinoplasty cases will be reviewed in great detail.
If you are considering Rhinoplasty Surgery, African-American and Ethnic Rhinoplasty is your handbook for beginning the process. You will learn first hand what actual patients are saying about their surgery, in their own words. The book also assesses "before" and "after" photos of various African-American celebrities and examines if the apparent changes in nasal structure can be attributed to strategic lighting, digital retouching, or enhancement with makeup, or if the subject could have undergone Rhinoplasty to reshape the nose.
