New York Plastic Surgeon Eases Common Fear of Rhinoplasty Surgery by Eliminating Traditional Packing and Painful Removal

NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2009 — Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj, Director of The Aesthetic Institute of New York and New Jersey, has revolutionized the rhinoplasty procedure by eliminating traditional packing and subsequent painful removal.

The pain associated with the post-operative removal of nasal packing is a well-known and commonly cited fear among rhinoplasty candidates. Slupchynskyj, a rhinoplasty specialist, has alleviated this fear by utilizing recent advancements in packing material. Using state-of-the-art, plant-based biopolymer materials which absorb overtime, Slupchynskyj is able to retain the clot promoting effects of conventional packing while eradicating the irritating and painful removal. "Rhinoplasty can be performed with minimal or no bleeding post-operatively, therefore with a majority of my patients, I don't use nasal packing," reports Slupchynskyj. He continues, "if it is necessary, I use a dissolvable packing which is much more comfortable for the patient and disintegrates over 24-hours."

Slupchynskyj's development is the latest of many contributions that he has made in the improvement of rhinoplasty procedures. He is the creator of a custom nasal "S" implant, designed specifically to address African American and Ethnic patients. The "S" implant was designed to augment the nasal frontal angle and dorsum of the nasal bone, thus offering a superior alternative to other and more common forms of nasal augmentation material available today.

Oleh Slupchynskyj, M.D. is the Director and Founder of the The Aesthetic Institute of New York and New Jersey with offices in Manhattan and West Orange, New Jersey. Dr. Slupchynskyj is double board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology with training specific to the head, neck and face. He is named one of the "Top Surgeons" of 2009 by the Consumers' Research Council of America and is considered a face specialist.
