In the past decade, there has been an unprecedented demand for cosmetic procedures, specifically in the Ethnic population. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that since 2000, Cosmetic Plastic Surgery procedures for Ethnic patients are up a whopping 129% for African-Americans and 173% for Hispanics. Socio-economic and media influences provide easier access and acceptance to Cosmetic Surgery in the minority communities. Two-time elected current President of the United States, Barack Obama, has also placed African-Americans in the limelight. Today, Cosmetic Surgery is no longer the domain of Caucasians and can no longer be characterized by race, or gender. Yet, despite these incredible statistics, African-American and Ethnic Facial Cosmetic Surgery has and still remains the most neglected, least understood and least talked about.
Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj, a Dual Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon in private practice in New York City, performs hundreds of Cosmetic Surgery procedures a year on Ethnic patients. After hearing 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 this essential and honest consumer guide to address their very specific desires, questions and concerns. As a Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Slupchynskyj believes it is imperative to educate patients about the multitude of cosmetic procedures available.
Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj wrote African-American and Ethnic Rhinoplasty to offer patients a definitive 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 explores the evolution of Rhinoplasty techniques over decades. Several of Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj’s Revision Rhinoplasty cases will be reviewed in great detail.
If you are interested in pursuing Rhinoplasty, African-American and Ethnic Rhinoplasty is your guide to starting the process. You will learn first hand what actual patients are saying about their surgery. The book also critiques “before” and “after” photos of several African-American celebrities to examine if the apparent changes in nasal structure could have arisen from such techniques as applied lighting, photo retouching, makeup shading, or if the subject could have undergone Rhinoplasty to reshape the nose.
