I need NYC surgeons with experience with Asian/oily skin, medpor implants, and scultping/scar removal. I've seen Dr. Philip Miller, who was incredibly kind, but recommended I look to surgeons that were comfortable with medpor; Dr. Anthony Sclafani, who was also incredibly helpful, but said he would use rib in place of the implant, something I'm not certain I want; and Dr. Oleh Slupchinsky, who was also incredibly helpful, but uses silastic implants. I have Asian skin; I am not yet convinced this would be helpful, because I am prone to scarring, like Minas Constantinides. I do not need bony humps taken care of , but support. I would like a surgeon that believes in the usage of kenalog injections if called for--that's something I'm certain.I would like to salvage what I can; I will never have a perfectly refined nose, but I know it's basic small, soft, short shape, and would like a relatively streamlined one that my skin drapes over well enough to finally look like it's part of my face. I actually got it before a complication post-op and am kicking myself, because I dread what could happen. There is a hard bump of scar tissue at my tip now. I don't know how to go forward. It seems the only way even the best revision rhino surgeons can "elevate" tips is by widening them.
