Rhinoplasty vs. Non-surgical Rhinoplasty
If you were born with a nose that you feel is out of balance with the rest of your facial features, you may have believed a nose job is your only option. Non-surgical rhinoplasty however, can offer many of the same benefits of surgery in correcting minor nose shape flaws. It is a customized procedure to enhance nose appearance with the injection of dermal fillers.
What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Traditional rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that alters the size and shape of your nose for a more pleasing appearance. This approach requires surgery and a period of recovery. If for some reason you are not thrilled with the results, you may require revision surgery. In fact, Dr. Macias is often called upon to revise a nose job performed by a less talented facial plastic surgeon. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is different. Through the use of dermal fillers, Dr. Macias can refine your nose shape to create a more pleasing appearance, balanced with your features.
How Can a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Help Me?
During non-surgical rhinoplasty, dermal fillers are injected to camouflage a hump on the bridge of the nose, to straighten a crooked nose, or to give the nose the illusion that it is straighter and more refined in structure. Non-surgical rhinoplasty or a “liquid nose job” is an effective way to correct minor nose imperfections. A non-surgical nose-job can subtly lift a downturned nasal tip, add breadth or volume to a nose which may be too small, or resolve asymmetry.
What Are the Benefits of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an excellent alternative to a traditional nose job, ideal if you are unable to take time off to recover from a surgical rhinoplasty. With non-surgical rhinoplasty, you can enjoy:
- Immediate results
- Minimal bruising or swelling
- Quick, painless procedure – less than one hour
- Results lasting approximately twelve months
- No downtime
Am I a Candidate For Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Men and women who are interested in refining nose appearance but want to avoid invasive surgery may be excellent candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty. You should have realistic expectations for what can be achieved with a non-surgical nose job. Non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot resolve a nose that is too wide, reduce the width or length of overly large nostrils or decrease nose projection. The cost of the treatment is far lower than a surgical correction of your nose structure but cannot offer long-term results, or address issues such as a deviated septum, which leads to breathing problems and snoring.
What is the Procedure Like to Experience? Is it Painful?
The injection of dermal fillers into the nose structure does not involve much pain, although you will feel the pinch of the needle. You may experience slight bruising or swelling around the injection sites. A non-surgical nose job is a temporary solution for nose structure problems, as the filler will slowly be reabsorbed by your body in time. There is no real worry about downtime, and you can go back to your usual activities immediately after your treatment.
