Surgical or Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty? Which one is Best for You
When it comes to your face, your nose can be a determining factor in how attractive you perceive yourself and how you are perceived by others. Thankfully, there are two terrific options for those who want to remodel this prominent feature.
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting fillers into the nose to alter its shape, the nostrils or bridge height. Working with the same hyaluronic acid gels used for facial fillers, an expert doctor can correct curves, bumps, and lumps, making your nose appear (and that is the crucial word!) smaller. The ideal candidate for a non-surgical nose job is someone who has a pronounced bump on the bridge of their nose. By filling the area around the bump, you can create the illusion of a perfectly straight nose. It is also possible to correct other imperfections: fillers will help lift up a droopy tip and it can also mitigate any sharp angles on mildly crooked noses. The actual procedure is generally painless and takes about 15 to 20 minutes, but might be slightly longer if a numbing cream is applied beforehand, meaning it really is a lunchtime procedure! For many people, this “filler nose job” is like a test run before they commit to rhinoplasty as the results from this nonsurgical procedure are temporary.
Of course, there are certain issues that cannot be dealt with by using this technique, namely noses that are too big or thick and those with extreme bumps, or simply the patient may be willing to have a one-time treatment. So the permanent solution for anyone who wants to alter their nose is nose surgery or rhinoplasty and in most cases, this is either to reduce the size of the nose or to reshape it entirely, where your surgeon may remove or rearrange some of the bone and cartilage to change the shape of your nose. During the operation, the surgeon may also need to make your nostrils smaller to keep your features in proportion.
