Many people want to get a perfect nose to complement their faces. A new nose can mean having smaller nostrils, or straighter noses. In the past, the only option you have in order to get this job done is through rhinoplasty, a procedure where small incisions are made on the nose to help even it out or reduce its size, as the case may be. These days, your options to improve your nose’s appearance has expanded, with the inclusion of non-surgical nose jobs on the list. Let us get to know this better.
How is a Non-Surgical Nose Job Done?
A non-surgical nose job is done using injectable fillers, like the ones used by med spas for laser skin treatment when enhancing the lips and cheeks. With this option, the medical professional will be able to correct lumps, bumps and curves, thus making it look smaller, more even, and symmetrical. He basically makes use of hyaluronic gels in the procedure.
You Can Choose Between Temporary or Permanent Fillers
Cosmetic fillers are often temporary. In the world of non-surgical nose jobs, however, you have the option to go for either a temporary or permanent filler. The temporary filler, known as Voluma, can last up to one and a half years. This is reversible and natural looking. From a temporary filler, you can proceed to having a permanent filler, the Bellafill, later. Voluma requires a single 15-minute session while Bellafill will take three sessions to ensure results.
How To Manage Your Expectations
Bruising, swelling, and bleeding are common risks associated with the use of injectable fillers. Since the nose is a very delicate part of the face, the risks can be worse, and may pose more dangers, on the part of the patient. You don’t want to suffer from any of those dangers. Therefore, you must make your research and look for a doctor who is an expert in non-surgical nose jobs. That will be the only guarantee that you will get the results you want minus the risks.
Who’s the Best Candidate for it?
Getting a non-surgical nose job is best for those with a pronounced bump on their nose bridges. The area around the bump will be injected with the filler. This will create an illusion that the nose is perfectly straight. Some doctors will recommend it if you want to correct mildly crooked noses or if your nose has a droopy tip. This procedure is not for a patient who has a big nose and those who have thick nose. In these cases, rhinoplasty is still best.
It is Costlier than Rhinoplasty
In the United States, a rhinoplasty costs a little lower than $5,100 on the average. Temporary injectable fillers, on the other hand, costs $2,500 per session. If you decide to maintain it on a yearly basis, that will mean another $2,500 for every year thereafter. Even if you choose to go for a permanent filler, the cost will be higher. Bellafill costs $1,500 per session which means you will spend $4,500 for all three sessions.
After knowing all about non-surgical nose jobs, including the costs and risks that come with it, will you still want to undergo one? A surgical nose job is a better option as long as you seek treatment from a board-certified plastic surgeon.
