Ethnic Rhinoplasty and the Bulbous Nasal Tip


Rhinoplasty Bulbous Nasal Tip Correction

Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj discusses three Bulbous Nasal Tip categories and
the various surgical techniques used for successful nasal
tip reshaping.

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.
