Surgical Vs. Non Surgical Versions of a Nose Job Procedure


If you’ve been considering having a nose job procedure, but have been weighing the risks and downtime involved and aren’t quite sure where to begin, then it’s time to begin doing your research. Did you know that there are now non-evasive versions of the procedure available that require no cutting and very little down time?

A nose job, known formally in the cosmetic surgery world as rhinoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that is done to correct flaws in the nose. This may include bumps that are built into the bridge of the nose, the proportion, size, appearance and even erratic or impaired breathing that is caused by structural issues within the nose itself.

The non-surgical version of the nose job costs less overall over the surgical procedure and there is much less down time involved. Dermal fillers are used in place of a scalpel and nasal reshaping is done by hand to correct bumps, asymmetry, wide nasal bridges and other types of cosmetic nasal flaws. Results are instantaneous and can be temporary or permanent, dependent on the type of filler that is used.

Rhinoplasty surgery will be required if you want a smaller nose or thinner bridge, if there is a larger sized bump that needs to be fixed or you want the tip of your nose narrowed out. In addition, if you have a deviated septum that is causing breathing problems, the non surgical procedure will not work for you. You may also want to consider having the surgical procedure if attaining proper symmetry to your nose will not be possible only through the use of fillers.

If you’re considering having the nose job procedure, the first thing that you want to do is find the proper doctor and figure out which type of surgery is right for you and your needs. Make sure that your doctor is a board certified plastic surgeon, or if you are having the non-surgical nose job procedure, a dermatologist. You should research your doctor first and look for online reviews from actual patients. Also, ask friends and family for referrals. Your doctor should make you feel comfortable and you shouldn’t feel like any question that you ask isn’t worth the time and consideration to answer it.

Having a consult in advance of the surgery will be the process that will help to quell your fears and give you any information on the procedure that you need to consider in order to make a final decision. During the consult and before the procedure is performed, you may be required to have blood work drawn and tested as well as be asked a plethora of questions about your health as well as your family health history. Not to worry; these are general questions and precautionary tests to ensure that you’re healthy enough to undergo the procedure, especially if any anesthesia will be involved. It will also help to prevent any allergic reactions to fillers, antibiotics and/or painkillers.

Doing your due diligence and knowing all that is involved in the rhinoplasty procedure should help you to make the decision that is right for you. The results you achieve from it can really help to boost your self-esteem. When you look good and know it, your inner confidence will really shine through.
