Non Surgical Rhinoplasty
Gain Without the Pain
When a patient who has had a traditional, surgical rhinoplasty does not like the final results of his or her rhinoplasty procedure, a second procedure to correct those results is typically required. While this has traditionally meant a revision surgical procedure, there are now alternatives to invasive plastic surgery. One of the most popular alternatives is a procedure called Non Surgical Rhinoplasty. This non-surgical procedure was invented and popularized in 2003 by Dr. Alexander Rivkin. Over the years, Non Surgical Rhinoplasty has become one of the more popular cosmetic treatments, offered in hundreds of clinics nationwide.
How Can I Straighten My Nose?
Non surgical rhinoplasty is capable of many changes, including straightening the nose. For patients who have already undergone a surgical rhinoplasty, Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty can be a welcome alternative. Many patients who are disappointed by their surgical results are understandably hesitant to again go “under the knife.” Indeed, Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty has several distinct advantages that make it appealing to patients who have already gone through the surgical process.
See Instant Results
Because the results of injectable fillers are instant, patients will be able to see their results immediately after their procedure. During a Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty procedure, the cosmetic surgeon will inject a dermal filler into the nose at specific, precise points in order to achieve the desired effect. This could mean increasing the height of the bridge of the nose, filling an indentation to correct asymmetry or lifting a drooping tip. Your cosmetic surgeon will determine the best placement for these injections. However, once the injections are made and the doctor massages the filler into place, you will be able to evaluate the results.
With surgical rhinoplasty, in comparison, a patient has to wait weeks for swelling to subside enough to evaluate just the preliminary result. It takes a full year to evaluate the final result. The advantage of these instant results is that a patient can communicate any changes he or she would like to be made to the cosmetic surgeon performing the procedure right away. In our experience, patients walk out of the room thrilled with the appearance of their nose.
Another advantage to Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty is the precision of the procedure. Small post surgical indentations or asymmetries or contour irregularities can usually be filled and balanced without affecting any other parts of the nose. The difference between a nose that looks like it has been operated on and one that looks completely natural is often contained in these tiny irregularities. Being able to identify and correct the defects is what makes a great Non Surgical Rhinoplasty expert.
Results Can Be Temporary or Permanent
Results from your non surgical rhinoplasty can be either temporary or permanent, depending on the filler chosen to perform the procedure. Temporary fillers last between six and eighteen months (depending on the filler chosen) before they are slowly broken down and absorbed into the body. Other fillers are designed to forestall absorption and can last for upwards of ten years—effectively a permanent solution.
This flexibility allows patients who want a permanent solution to seek one out, but not before taking their new nose for a “test drive.” After all, it may take some time for a patient to become comfortable with a new look to the nose—or any change that alters the look of the face. Using a temporary filler allows the patient to become comfortable with their new looks and to reflect on their new looks. This helps increase overall satisfaction with the final look.
No Recovery Needed with Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty
For many patients of traditional, surgical rhinoplasty, among the most appealing aspects of a non surgical rhinoplasty is the fact that there is no recovery time needed. As mentioned above, traditional surgical rhinoplasty requires a significant, and often uncomfortable, recovery period. Because non surgical rhinoplasty employs injectable fillers, there is no recovery period involved. Patients may, generally, resume normal activities right away. However, in most cases, patients will want to avoid strenuous exercise the day of the procedure to decrease the possibility of bruising.
With Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty, there is no need for surgery, anesthesia, or the risk of complications involved in “going under the knife.” Indeed, once the initial consultation is over, most Non Surgical Rhinoplasty procedures can be completed in fifteen minutes or less. This means that patients seeking a Non Surgical Rhinoplasty Revision can get a new nose on their lunch break. If you’re wondering, how can I straighten my nose in a hurry, then non surgical rhinoplasty may be your best option.
A Case to be Made for Precision, Convenience and Results
As an incredibly flexible and precise procedure, Non Surgical Rhinoplasty is exceptionally well suited to giving patients what they want: a new nose without a lot of time and pain. For patients who have had an unpleasant experience with surgical rhinoplasty, this is a fresh breath of air and a reassuring option. Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty is not for everyone. Some patients’ irregularity is more than filler injection can correct. These patients should be referred to the surgical revision rhinoplasty experts in the community.
Most Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty results are temporary. If patients are not satisfied, they always have the option to undergo surgery. However, many patients find the idea of a Non Surgical Rhinoplasty a huge relief.
