CAN I GET THE SAME RESULT WITH A NON-SURGICAL NOSE JOB AS WITH A SURGICAL ONE?

rhinoplasty Some companies assert that a particular composition or form of their filler is for lips, crow’s feet, vertical lines, etc. And we now have the latest addition for jaw contouring. Personally, I fail to see the biological or molecular differences that merit description and use for different parts of the face. As stated, the use of fillers in the nose is for contour irregularities.

If the nose hump is too large and you fill in the radix – or that low area near the forehead between the eyebrows to create the illusion that the hump is not as big as it really is. What are you really doing? You’re just camouflaging the problem for which you seek improvement. The real treatment is to make the nose look its best. Do this by removal of the hump and restructuring it.

Elegance for the woman and masculinity for the man. This in my opinion can best be done with surgery. That’s not to say there is not a place for filler here and there to fine-tune the result- but quite rare. There’s no substitute for real rhinoplasty in the hands of a knowledgeable and trained rhinoplasty surgeon.

I encounter situations for revision where the patient has had filler and we’ve had what appears to be varying degrees of skin vascular compromise presumably from the filler. They say the filler goes away over time but the collagen that it produces is essentially a type of scar tissue. Often use of fillers in the nose is offered by non-surgeons with no or minimal exposure to real surgery.

In addition, now you have nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants as injectors. These individuals play a vital role in mostly third-party billing situations for insurance-covered procedures. Some have extensive experience strictly for cosmetic procedures – as highly experienced injectors.

Rhinoplasty

I urge them to stay away from the nose. Hollowness, volume loss, wrinkles, and the use of Botox are their main domains. I think they should stay away from the nose. So – the answer to the question is no. If you want your best nose, you need a board-certified rhinoplasty surgeon who demonstrates through his gallery of before and after photos, knowledge, experience, training skill and talent.

We are the gold standard for rhinoplasty results. Compare the before and after galleries. Take the time to consult – especially if there is a charge for the consultation. Free consults are a way to attract potential new patients but usually is not a sign of a highly qualified board-certified plastic surgeon.

CHOOSING YOUR RHINOPLASTY SURGEON REQUIRES MORE HOMEWORK THAN OTHER COSMETIC SURGUCAL PROCEDURES.
