Because nose jobs are among the most popular cosmetic surgeries these days and they have remained highly popular for years, you have probably heard of them and may even know someone who has gone through this procedure. Traditionally, a rhinoplasty has been a surgical procedure that requires the surgeon to make several incisions around the nose to give him access to the tissues and bones lying beneath the surface. While most people find that they have good results from this procedure, they may not have liked the lengthy recovery period or the possibility of lifetime scars. Today, there is an alternative to this older surgical method. With a nonsurgical nose job, you can achieve many of the same benefits of a traditional rhinoplasty but without the risks or downsides of surgery.
Nonsurgical Options for Cosmetic Procedures
A nonsurgical nose job is sometimes called a liquid nose job because it is done using liquid drugs injected beneath the skin. Dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid are the options most frequently chosen because they have proven themselves to be highly beneficial for filling in areas with natural proportions.
Planning Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty Procedures Long-Term
Of course, unlike a traditional surgical rhinoplasty, a nonsurgical rhinoplasty is not a permanent procedure. Depending on the filler used, you may need to return for follow-up injections every 6 to 18 months with most patients needing yearly injections. Over time, you may find that your filler lasts longer. While you are not committing to an in-depth procedure, you are making a commitment to continuing to care for your nose. Without regular follow-ups, your nose will go back to its previous shape.
You should keep in mind that a nonsurgical nose job is not for everyone. It cannot take care of severe issues or correct major bumps from broken bones. It also cannot decrease the size of a portion of the nose but can only add volume to an area.
