Rhinoplasty is a tricky procedure. The nose is one of the most prominent features of the face, making it vital to ones appearance, so when patients elect to have a surgical rhinoplasty, they are altering one of the most noticeable areas of their face. While to many this is a fantastic change, the rhinoplasty has one of the very highest dissatisfaction rates among plastic surgery. This is due to a wide variety of factors, including surgeon and patient differences in goals, miscommunication, patients fixation on flaws, etc. After undergoing an invasive and expensive procedure, it can be very disheartening to still be dissatisfied.
Enter the non-surgical rhinoplasty. The fact is, many patients simply do not want to undergo a surgical revision of a rhinoplasty that isn’t up to their satisfaction for whatever reason. Weeks of discomfort, bruising, swelling, and another recovery period aren’t attractive to anyone. For minor bumps, deviations, or asymmetries, the non-surgical nose-job can be perfect alternative to undergoing another post-operative period.
The non-surgical rhinoplasty works by filling in the spaces of the nose causing a deformity, drooping, etc, thereby creating a more symmetric, attractive nose.
Yes, the non-surgical rhinoplasty is temporary. But for someone who is looking for a fix that doesn’t involve surgery, or to buy time until a schedule allows for a revisit to the OR, it can be the perfect alternative. At a fraction of the cost, it offers results that are comparable to an operation.
