Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj discusses three Bulbous Nasal Tip categories and the various surgical techniques used for successful nasal tip reshaping.
Revision Rhinoplasty with Auricular Cartilage Grafts
Watch surgical footage of Dr. Slupchynskyj performing Revision Rhinoplasty, using auricular cartilage grafts to restore structural support and projection.
Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty Removal of Medpor
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
Defatting is often the first step necessary to successfully creating more contour and definition in the nasal tip.
See actual surgery footage and patient before and after photos as Dr. Slupchynskyj discusses the origin of Bulbous Nasal Tips and the surgical steps necessary to restore definition and structural integrity to the Nasal Tip. In this educational video, Dr. Slupchynskyj takes us through the surgical technique called
Tip Defatting, which is the first step in addressing the Bulbous Nasal Tip.
Ethnic Bulbous Tip and Cartilage Grafting
In this educational video, Dr. Slupchynskyj takes us through Cartilage Grafting, which is the second surgical step required, (following Defatting) to restore definition and structure to a Bulbous Tip. Dr. S. discusses why grafting is required and where the cartilage may be harvested from. Before and after photos of patients who underwent Cartilage Grafting include Revision Rhinoplasty patients.
