New Rhinoplasty Technique Preserves Ethnicity

Plastic surgeon, Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj, has revealed in a new study that African Americans can have nose jobs without changing their ethnic look. According to a study recently published in the Archives of Plastic Surgery, a three-tiered surgical procedure can produce a natural-looking nose job without loss of racial identity. This procedure, Dr. Slupchynskyj states 'improves the equilibrium of the nose and face by reducing nasal flare, increasing the dorsal height of the nose and refines the look of the tip of the nose'.


Dr. Slupchynskyj noted that the three-tiered approach was significant since "African American patients are not looking to change their ethnic features; they seek satisfaction from a nose that is in harmony with the remainder of their facial features."


The study of 75 African American rhinoplasty patients found that most of them were satisfied with the result and indicated that their self-esteem was also increased.
