Why Choose Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

04/14/2016

If you are an African-American considering Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery, there’s a good chance you worry your nose won’t retain its ethnic appearance. A successful outcome after Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery is depends on several factors: Most importantly, how you well you convey your desired results to your Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgeon to get the outcome you seek. The more specific you are about the look you desire, the better results you will get. Tell your surgeon if you’re worried about breathing problems, loss of tip definition, low nasal bridge, wide nasal tip, or wide nostrils. Communication is vital to obtaining the best result.

It’s important to choose an Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgeon experienced not only with Rhinoplasty Surgery but who specializes in African-American Rhinoplasty. A highly skilled African-American Rhinoplasty Surgeon understands that African-American skin is thicker and can scar easily, nose cartilage is characteristically weaker, and nasal bones are usually shorter. A Rhinoplasty done on a non-ethnic nose will be very different than Rhinoplasty for the African-American nose.

When compared to Caucasian Rhinoplasty, African-American nose surgery tends to involve more reconstruction. Since there is generally less cartilage present in the nose, it is often grafted from other areas of the body. Cartilage can be sourced from the nasal septum, the ear, or the rib. Some African-American Rhinoplasty patients request a custom implant to help shape and reinforce the nose.

During your consultation, don’t be afraid to inquire about the African-American Rhinoplasty Surgeon’s background. Ask how many Ethnic Rhinoplasties your surgeon has completed, and look at his or her patients’ before and after photos. Your surgeon should be aware of general anatomy differences for your ethnicity as opposed to other races.

Every race and lineage possesses unique attractiveness and proportion ideally matched to their face and physique. Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj strives to deliver the natural-looking results you want without “omitting” or “altering” your ethnicity.
