Rhinoplasty vs. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Most of us have something we’d like to improve about our appearance. Its part of making the most of life and feeling the best about ourselves. The second most common plastic surgery area of treatment is the nose and many desire to accomplish either subtle or more dramatic changes to their nose shape. If you find the look of your nose is not ideal, it affects your quality of life and your confidence, or there are breathing issues, a consultation for nose shaping may be helpful. Nose shaping can be accomplished with either a surgical rhinoplasty or a non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty can enhance the shape of your nose and its functionality. Rhinoplasty is a versatile procedure that can:
- Smooth away bumps or humps on the nasal bridge
- Straighten a crooked nose
- Reduce the size of a bulbous nasal tip
- Reduce the size of nostrils
- Create a more masculine or feminine looking nose
- Correct a hooked or drooping nose
- Correct a deviated septum
Rhinoplasty is always completely tailored to meet your vision while respecting the basic structure of your nose. Dr. Repta, our acclaimed rhinoplasty surgeon, goes by the rule of less is more, so that you can get the nose you dream of, without compromising your appearance, identity, or ethnicity.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an alternative path towards correcting the shape of your nose. Non-Surgical rhinoplasty uses dermal fillers, predominantly hyaluronic acid-based fillers, to fill in depressions or enhance the overall shape of your nose. The benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty include:
- No downtime
- No general anesthesia required
- Immediate results
- Small or pinched nasal tips can be resolved
- Depressions along the nasal bridge can be smoothed
- A hump on the bridge can be smoothed
- Asymmetry can be resolved
- Create a subtle lift to the nose tip
Using a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler allows you to visualize the change that is possible. If you love it, the filler will last for up to a year. If you don’t love it, the filler can be dissolved with another injection. Dr. Repta’s patients have been thrilled with the results of non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Which form of rhinoplasty is right for me?
A consultation with Dr. Repta is a necessary step in determining which form of rhinoplasty is best for you. The basic idea to consider is that the non-surgical option can only add to a nose, not take away. Non-Surgical rhinoplasty is an excellent option for minor nose reshaping, as it looks natural, has no recovery time, and is far more affordable. Surgical rhinoplasty has more versatility and can also enhance functionality where the non-surgical option cannot. Surgical rhinoplasty also has the added benefit of longevity. You may want to try a non-surgical nose job to “try on” a new look – and later undergo a rhinoplasty.
