Many of us have aspects of our appearance that we wish to improve, as it contributes to our overall well-being and self-confidence. Among the most sought-after areas for plastic surgery is the nose, as individuals often desire subtle or significant changes to its shape. If you feel that the appearance of your nose is hindering your quality of life, self-assurance, or causes breathing difficulties, a nose procedure could be beneficial. Redefinition of the nose can be achieved through either surgical rhinoplasty or non-surgical rhinoplasty options.
Dr. Reitzen has years of experience in performing surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures on her patients in the greater New York area. Her expertise in the realm of redefining the nose is unmatched.
Rhinoplasty can improve the shape and functionality of a patient’s nose.
Some of the changes that the procedure can achieve include:
- Correct nasal bridge bumps or humps for a smoother appearance
- Straighten a crooked nose for improved symmetry
- Refine a bulbous nasal tip for a more proportional size
- Reduce nostril size for better facial harmony
- Create a nose that aligns with desired masculine or feminine features
- Correct a hooked or drooping nose for a more balanced profile
- Address a deviated septum for improved breathing and nasal function
Rhinoplasty procedures are always tailored to achieve the desired look of the patient’s nose. Dr. Reitzen takes the patient’s desired look, ethnicity, and unique features into account when curating any treatment plan, ensuring that the patient’s goals are achieved without sacrificing their natural beauty.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty offers an alternative approach to address nose shape concerns. Using hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, this procedure can fill depressions and enhance the overall shape of the nose. The advantages of non-surgical rhinoplasty include:
- Minimal downtime
- No need for general anesthesia
- Immediate visible results
- Resolves small or pinched nasal tips
- Smoothes depressions along the nasal bridge
- Corrects a hump on the bridge
- Addresses asymmetry
- Provides a subtle lift to the nose tip
By utilizing a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, you can envision the potential transformation. If you are delighted with the outcome, the filler can provide results for up to a year. In the event that you are not satisfied, the filler can be dissolved with a simple injection. Dr. Reitzen’s patients have expressed immense satisfaction with the outcomes of non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Which form of rhinoplasty is right for me?
A consultation with Dr. Reitzen is crucial in determining the most suitable form of rhinoplasty for your needs. It's important to consider that the non-surgical option can only add to the nose, not remove any existing features. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an excellent choice for minor nose reshaping as it yields natural-looking results, requires no downtime, and is more cost-effective. On the other hand, surgical rhinoplasty offers greater versatility and can also address functional concerns that the non-surgical option cannot. Additionally, surgical rhinoplasty provides long-lasting results. If you're interested in exploring a new look, you may opt for a non-surgical nose job as a temporary solution before considering a rhinoplasty procedure.
What is the takeaway?
Both surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures come with incredible benefits for patients. When choosing between these two options, patients will ultimately have to think about their goals and what makes more sense for them. Those who are looking for minor changes can most likely achieve their desired look with a non-surgical nose job. Those looking for a more drastic change, however, will need to undergo a surgical rhinoplasty.
