NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj will present a lecture titled, "Nasal Augmentation in Ethnic Rhinoplasty Using Custom-Carved Silicone Implants" at the prestigious American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) Annual Fall Conference being held in New Orleans. Dr. Slupchynskyj is to speak to top doctors and other allied health professionals from around the world about his latest innovations and techniques in facial plastic surgery.
According to Dr. Slupchynskyj, Ethnic patients pursue Nose Surgery, known as Rhinoplasty, for reasons relating to dissatisfaction with the shape and proportion of their nose. Many complain of a low wide nasal bridge and request elevation and narrowing of the bridge, known as nasal augmentation. This surgical procedure is achieved through the use of a nasal implant, and is one of the most common requests of his Ethnic patients. "Ethnic patients have been coming to me from across the globe requesting rhinoplasty with the use of implants," Dr. Slupchynskyj reports. "It is critical the implant be custom tailored to each and every patient due to the fact that no two noses are alike. The custom carved silastic implant not only raises the nasofrontal angle and nasal bridge, but also narrows the bridge and refines the appearance of the nose." Dr. Slupchynskyj continues, "These are important attributes of the implant because it slims and elevates the nose at the same time: two aesthetic characteristics that my Ethnic patients most often desire." He feels an obligation to educate other surgeons in performing proven surgical techniques in Ethnic Rhinoplasty as the popularity of this procedure increases. In addition, participants will learn techniques for reducing infection and implant movement. The AAFPRS fall meeting will be held in New Orleans, LA October 19-21, 2013.
