A nonsurgical nose job, or nonsurgical rhinoplasty, is a procedure using injectable fillers to change the appearance of the nose. This option has become increasingly popular in recent years, as more people seek nonsurgical cosmetic enhancements. If you are considering a nonsurgical nose job over a rhinoplasty surgery, this article will help you understand the pros and cons of your nonsurgical option and how we determine during a consultation which procedure is right for you.
There are many reasons patients and providers feel very strongly both for and against nonsurgical nob job treatments. Let's explore them below.
There are many reasons you may opt for a nonsurgical nose job over surgery.
The most obvious reason is that it's less invasive with a shorter recovery time. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is performed in our office using local anesthesia, so there's no need for a surgery center or hospital.
As nonsurgical procedures are more popular than ever, the techniques and materials used for nonsurgical rhinoplasty have improved dramatically in recent years.
At New Jersey Plastic Surgery, we use injectable fillers to change the shape of the nose. This is ideal for patients who do not want to commit to surgery or just want small tweaks. The results are temporary, so you can decide if you like the new shape of your nose before moving forward with a surgical rhinoplasty, if that's your ultimate goal.
No procedure is without side effects or risks, and nonsurgical rhinoplasty is no exception. One of the biggest drawbacks is that they are not permanent. If you love your results, you will need to repeat the treatment every 6-12 months.
If you have a significant amount of nose tissue that needs to be removed or reshaped, a nonsurgical nose job won't yield the best results for you.
Another crucial drawback involves risk and whom you choose to perform this injectable procedure. Some injectable filler treatments are inherently more complicated than others, and not every aesthetic injector is skilled or qualified to inject in all areas. The nose is particularly complicated, with a higher risk of complications than other areas. This is why it's more important to seek care with a highly qualified, expert injector, preferably a plastic surgeon, who has received extensive training and understands the complex anatomy of the nose.
Just like rhinoplasty surgeries are the most complicated plastic surgeries we can perform, a nonsurgical nose job is also the most complex dermal filler injection treatment you can receive. Be selective with whom you choose to provide you with this procedure.
The best way to determine if a nonsurgical nose job is right for you is to schedule a comprehensive, personalized consultation with one of our plastic surgeons in Montclair, NJ. We will take a look at your goals and expectations and perform a physical examination of your nose and face. We will review your medical history, including previous cosmetic procedures you have had. Based on this, we will be able to recommend whether a nonsurgical nose job or a surgical rhinoplasty is best for you.
It's important to schedule a consultation at New Jersey Plastic Surgery to determine if a nonsurgical nose job is right for you. However, while you wait for your consultation, here are some answers to common questions.
Nonsurgical nose job results typically last 6-12 months. This will vary from person to person. As the results are not permanent, you will require touch-up treatments.
There are some risks associated with nonsurgical nose jobs. As with any injectable procedure, there is a risk of bruising, swelling, and bleeding. In addition, because the nose is a complex structure, there is a higher risk of complications when injecting filler into the nose than in other areas of the face. That is why it's crucial to receive care from a skilled, experienced plastic surgeon.
The best way to determine if you're a candidate is through a consultation with our plastic surgeons. Typically, a good candidate for a nonsurgical nose job will only require small tweaks to the nose's appearance without the need to "remove" anything to achieve the desired result. Candidates should meet the criteria for receiving dermal fillers safely. We will review your health history to determine if this treatment will be safe and effective for you.
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is ideal for people who want to make small, subtle changes to the shape of their noses. If you have a very small nose, nonsurgical rhinoplasty may be able to give you the results you want. It can also be a good option for people who are not candidates for surgery or are not ready to commit to surgery.
Some people aren't good candidates for nonsurgical nose jobs because they have a severely deviated septum or other structural abnormalities that impede results. Additionally, nonsurgical rhinoplasty can't achieve the same dramatic results that surgical rhinoplasty can.
If you do not meet the criteria for receiving dermal fillers, you should not get a nonsurgical nose job. This means if you're pregnant, nursing, or allergic to fillers, you are not considered a good candidate. Other health conditions may preclude you from receiving this treatment.
If you're looking for a more dramatic change, you'll likely need to go the surgical route.
