The Benefits of Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty

Primary, Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging and difficult procedures a Facial Plastic Surgeon can perform in Cosmetic Surgery. Ethic noses typically have excessive fatty tissue in the tip of the nose, poor supporting cartilages and thick skin. All of these attributes make it much harder to get good results as opposed to Caucasian noses. Revision Ethnic Rhinoplasty is even more challenging and can yield only marginal improvements.

Rhinoplasty for African American Patients, A Retrospective Review of 75 Cases, written by Oleh Slupchynskyj, MD; Marzena Gieniusz, BA, 75 patients treated in 2008 and their rate of satisfaction and self-esteem are discussed.

The average national complication rate for an Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgeon is about 1% to 2%. That means that a Surgeon must revise 1% to 2 % of his/her Rhinoplasty cases, whether it is a minor or major revision.

Complications, which lead to Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery, include:

1) Poor implant placement and/or selection.
2) Improper reduction of nostril width.
3) Poor surgical planning and approach to the African American nose.

How do you, the patient, ensure having to undergo Ethnic Rhinoplasty (Revision Rhinoplasty) Surgery a second, and sometimes even a third time?

The first most important step is securing a Facial Plastic Surgeon with training specific to the face and nose, versus a General Surgeon whose training includes the entire body. Second and just as important, the Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgeon must have experience and proven results performing not only Primary, but also Revision Rhinoplasty on African American and Ethnic noses. Third, the surgeon needs to be able to work with you towards your desired result. Make sure your first consultation includes the following:

1) Computer imaging of the nose is absolutely essential to pre-operative planning and will show you an excellent and realistic approximation of your desired results. This process reinforces the doctor/patient understanding of expected results.

2) See actual before and after photos of the surgeon’s patients who have undergone Rhinoplasty and if possible, have results that you like and are similar.

3) Obtain references from patients who have undergone the same procedure. Speak to three and at the very least two, to get several opinions.

Lip Augmentation in NYC

Just like the rest of the face, the lips are susceptible to unwanted changes due to aging. Over time, they lose volume and change shape, and can also be affected by wrinkles around the mouth. When this happens, women in particular may become self-conscious about the appearance of their lips. Board Certified New York City Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj offers revolutionary Lip Augmentation treatment techniques that go beyond the traditional injections and filler methods to produce beautiful, long-lasting and natural-looking results. Under his expert surgical hand and keen eye, many NYC lip augmentation patients have attained youthful, voluminous lips they desire.

What is Lip Augmentation Surgery?

Lip Augmentation Surgery at Dr. Slupchynskyj’s New York practice is different from other Lip Enhancement procedures. Unlike other procedures which use temporary injectable fillers to create volume, Lip Augmentation Surgery is a permanent solution, which improves the look of a patient’s own lips. Rather than use synthetic implants, Dr. Slupchynskyj raises the location of the upper lip, exposing more pink lip area and creating a wider, healthier looking smile. Dr. Slupchynskyj may supplement the final result using fillers such as Juvederm®™; however, the most visible and attractive results come as a result of his unique surgical techniques. Dr. Slupchynskyj knows that bigger doesn’t always mean better when it comes to Lip Augmentation. He evaluates other facial features before performing Lip Augmentation Surgery so that he can create results that provide a favorable, youthful look.

How is Lip Augmentation Surgery performed?

Dr. Slupchynskyj uses several surgical techniques for Lip Augmentation in NYC. During a thorough pre-surgery consultation, he will evaluate the patient’s existing lip shape, underlying dental work and jawline, as well as other facial features to determine which treatment approach is best suited for them. All Lip Augmentation Surgeries are performed under local anesthesia.

Recovering from Lip Augmentation Surgery

New York City Lip Augmentation patients may experience minor swelling, stiffness and discomfort immediately following surgery. Dr. Slupchynskyj provides detailed post-operative instructions to all patients to ensure a speedy, safe recovery. He will also prescribe medications to manage any pain or risk of infection after surgery. Patients should apply cold compresses to the lips the first few days after surgery. Most Lip Augmentation patients recover fully 10 days after the procedure.

The Benefits of Lip Augmentation Surgery

Lip Lift Surgery can be performed on its own or as the finishing touch to a complete facial rejuvenation treatment. The procedure can restore a patient’s youthful appearance and reduce or eliminate the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Slupchynskyj’s approach to Lip Augmentation is particularly beneficial because it is a safer, more natural-looking treatment. Surgical lip enhancement is a more permanent solution than injectable fillers or fat injections alone. The procedure can be completed in about one hour, but can make years’ worth of difference in a patient’s appearance.
