Ethnic Rhinoplasty and the Bulbous Nasal Tip


Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty Removal of Medpor
Nasal Implant



Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj removes a Medpor Nasal Implant during a Revision Ethnic
Rhinoplasty procedure. This bulky implant was placed by another surgeon in a
previous surgery, and was intended to elevate the bridge and increase tip
definition. This particular implant did the exact opposite, resulting in a
bulbous nasal tip and wide nasal bridge. The Medpor Implant also caused
ingrowth of surrounding tissue, making removal extremely difficult.
Medpor Implant removal typically involves removal of surrounding tissue,
creating a cavity in the nose.  Dr. Slupchynskyj prefers to utilize a
customized silastic implant where there is no tissue ingrowth, and
removal, if needed, is safer.


Defatting the Ethnic Bulbous Nose



Excess fibrofatty tissue often the reason behind a rounded or "bulbous" nasal tip in
numerous patients, and it is even more common in African-American patients.
See surgical footage of Dr. Slupchynskyj meticulously removing this excess
tissue and many patient before and after photos following Ethnic Rhinoplasty.
Defatting is often the first step necessary to successfully creating more contour
and definition in the nasal tip.
