3 Minute Read:
For many men and women, their noses are their most frustrating aesthetic concern. And this makes sense. Since the nose is so central to our faces, any irregularity can detract from our entire facial aesthetic.
Whether from genetics or an injury (broken nose), rhinoplasty (cosmetic nose surgery) can help you achieve the nose you desire.
While rhinoplasty was the most trusted and performed plastic surgery procedure in 2020, with over 350,000 procedures, many men and women want to correct their nasal concerns without invasive surgery.
Well, the good news is that some aesthetic issues with the nose can be addressed with non-surgical rhinoplasty.
This blog will explore the differences between surgical and non-surgical nose surgery to help you better understand your choices.
What Is Non-surgical Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty (corrective nose surgery) is a surgical procedure that helps correct structural irregularities with the nose, including noses that are too large or small for the face, crooked noses, and noses with an upturned or downturned nasal tip.
But, despite many people’s misconceptions, surgical rhinoplasty is not the only option to address aesthetic issues with the nose.
Men and women with minor aesthetic concerns may not need a full rhinoplasty procedure. Instead, Diamond Non-surgical Rhinoplasty can address nasal bumps and humps as well as correct structural issues with the nose, all without surgery!
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that uses injectable treatments to help you achieve the nasal appearance you want.
It is important to note that there are some limitations and drawbacks of non-surgical rhinoplasty, especially when compared to traditional rhinoplasty. The first limitation is that non-surgical nose surgery cannot minimize the size of the nose. So, if you struggle with an overly large nose, a non-surgical procedure will not be able to help.
Secondly, because of the nature of non-surgical rhinoplasty (which utilizes injectable solutions), you may only achieve temporary results instead of long-lasting results with rhinoplasty surgery.
How Is Non-surgical Rhinoplasty Performed?
As with every plastic surgery procedure and cosmetic treatment, your consultation is the first and most important step to achieving the nose of your dreams.
At your rhinoplasty consultation, you will be able to share your frustrations and concerns with Dr. Diamond, and he will be able to analyze your condition. If he feels he can help you achieve your aesthetic goals with a non-surgical procedure, Dr. Diamond will create a treatment plan for you.
Depending on the specific type of correction needed, Dr. Diamond will either use a dermal filler injectable to add volume to low spots in and around your nose (which helps to give your nose a straighter and more balanced appearance) or he will use an injectable hump-reduction solution to break up nasal cartilage. Like a liposuction procedure, this broken-up cartilage will be removed from your nose through another syringe.
In total, this procedure usually takes less than an hour to perform, and there is typically no downtime associated with the procedure.
What Are the Benefits of Non-surgical Rhinoplasty?
Whether you are hesitant about a full surgical procedure (along with recovery and downtime) or you simply want to accomplish a minor correction to your nose, Diamond Non-surgical Rhinoplasty may be the answer for you.
Not only will you achieve a more balanced and contoured nose, but you will be able to see real results without the surgical process or recovery of traditional rhinoplasty.
There’s no question that nasal issues can negatively affect the appearance of your face, but after your non-surgical procedure, you can show off your new and improved nose with pride!
