Is a Non-surgical Nose Job Right for You?
Many people don’t know that if you’re unhappy with the way your nose looks that going under the knife isn’t the only option. In fact, depending on what you’re hoping to achieve, non-surgical rhinoplasty may be a better option than traditional rhinoplasty. Let’s take a look at what it is and how it differs from a surgical nose job.
Who’s a Good Candidate
Before the procedure, we’ll consult with you on the results that you want to ensure that you’re a fit. Non-surgical nose jobs are great for people who’d like to smooth out a dorsal hump or people who’d like to raise the bridge of their nose. They’re also good for people with slightly crooked noses.
Non-surgical nose jobs are even great for people who’d like to change the look and definition of the nasal tip—something that was previously thought to be possible only with surgery.
A non-surgical nose job is not a good choice for those who require rhinoplasty to correct a functional issue or for those who want to dramatically slim down their nose.
During a non-surgical nose job, small amounts of dermal filler is injected into your nose in precise locations. The idea here is to change the way the nose is shaped and contoured. In the hands of an expert plastic surgeon, the results can be extraordinary—your nose will look great!
One huge benefit of this procedure, as compared to traditional rhinoplasty, is that you’re fully awake and in control of the procedure. The results are immediately apparent, so you can give feedback on what you’re seeing. Results are also long-lasting—anywhere from 8 months to 5 years, depending on the type of filler used.
Another positive aspect of going the non-surgical route is that recovery is a breeze. Most people can go back to work the next day with little-to-no downtime. Compare that to the weeks that it may take to recover from traditional rhinoplasty.
If you’re considering a nose job, we’d encourage you to come in for a consultation to discuss which procedure is right for you.
