Rhinoplasty trends show an increasing demand for nose reshaping, even as the world has been masking up and staying home the past 2 years!
The American Society of Physicians and Surgeons (ASPS) reported that rhinoplasty was the top choice for cosmetic surgery patients in 2020, with facelifts and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) as close runners-up.
Toronto rhinoplasty and facial plastic surgeon Dr. Cory Torgerson performs various nose job techniques for a diverse patient population at his downtown Toronto surgical centre.
He sees the rhinoplasty “boom” going strong in Canada and is looking forward to more innovation and growing demand for personalized, beautiful results in 2022.
Here are the top 3 rhinoplasty trends we expect to see in 2022.
1. The “Zoom Boom” Effect on Rhinoplasty
No doubt, staring at our own faces for long periods has magnified a few facial concerns for many of us. It may not have been top of mind when businesses shifted to working from home and online conferencing, but the WFH (work from home) movement actually drove incredible growth for the medical aesthetics industry.
Taking into account that bad lighting and close proximity to camera lenses can be anything but flattering, rhinoplasty patients have had more time to reflect on their nasal proportions, symmetry, and contours.
Seeing is believing, and the more often we perceive an imperfection, the more we’re motivated to improve it.
We predict that continued virtual business meetings, FaceTime sessions with relatives and friends, and staying in touch through video will continue to boost the demand for rhinoplasty in 2022.
2. Natural Nose Jobs
Recent innovations in cosmetic surgery and a “less is more” approach mean that undergoing rhinoplasty no longer means looking dramatically different.
Expert rhinoplasty surgeons use a bespoke surgical planning approach that accounts for ethnic features, overall facial harmony, and very precise requests.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can reduce nose prominence, smooth bumps, define a bridge, narrow nostrils, or upturn a droopy tip. However, nose jobs can be so personalized and subtle that they appeal to a broader range of people who simply want a “tweak” and not a completely new nose.
Dr. Torgerson specializes in ethnic rhinoplasty and natural-looking nose job results for Toronto patients.
3. The Liquid Rhinoplasty Trend
The trend of non-surgical rhinoplasty using injectable dermal fillers really took off in 2021 and shows no signs of slowing.
Dr. Torgerson’s cosmetic surgery clinic in Toronto performs injection rhinoplasty procedures for people who desire subtle volume additions to the nasal bridge, camouflage of small bumps and irregularities, tip rhinoplasty, and other adjustments.
The fact that this quick, in-office procedure doesn’t require general anaesthetic and delivers instant results makes it appealing to people of all ages.
In particular, if you’ve considered test-driving a change to your nasal shape, the temporary nature of dermal fillers may appeal to you.
The benefits include lower cost and rapid recovery. There are some limitations to rhinoplasty with filler, so be sure to book a personal consultation and discover which approach is best to help you reach your goals in 2022!
