Rhinoplasty Or Non-Surgical Nose Job?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, you have probably done some research about options to change it.
The large amounts of information on the Web can be confusing and overwhelming. We hope that this article will help you understand the 2 main procedures performed on the nose and the differences between them so that you can make the right choice for you!
Rhinoplasty, more commonly referred to as a nose job, is a surgical procedure performed under general anaesthetic. A non-surgical nose job is a newer treatment that is done outside of the operating room in a doctor’s office. The procedure is much faster than surgery, typically lasting under half an hour. Many other differences exist between a traditional rhinoplasty and a non-surgical nose job. These contrasts specifically related to permanency, cost, and downtime (these will be addressed below). But the biggest difference between the procedures is what YOU as a patient are looking for in terms of your nose concerns.
Improve The Overall Contours Of Your Nose
Cosmetic/Non-Cosmetic Nose Jobs
If you have a bump, a droopy tip, and/or are looking to slightly improve the overall contours of your nose, then a non-surgical nose job may be right for you. On the other hand, if you want more of a significant decrease in size of the nose, have breathing issues, and/or want more of a dramatic difference, a traditional rhinoplasty is probably the path you should take. Typically, the needs that are unique to your nose will be the deciding factor between a rhinoplasty and a non-surgical nose job.
A rhinoplasty surgery is a procedure with results that last for many years and is typically performed only once. Since the actual anatomy of the nose is altered, the results will not diminish as time goes on. On the other hand, a non-surgical nose job is performed by injecting hyaluronic acid into the nose. The body slowly metabolizes the product, meaning that results can last up to a year. Typically, the procedure needs to be performed regularly to keep up results.

Achieve your desired result
Since a rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure requiring a team of people to achieve your desired result, the upfront cost is significantly higher than one treatment of a non-surgical nose job. Keep in mind though that a non-surgical nose job will need to be repeated many times to keep up your results, meaning that you may end up paying more than a rhinoplasty in the long run.
The last major difference between the procedures is the downtime. Rhinoplasty procedures require a lengthy healing process with about 1 to 3 weeks of downtime. A non-surgical nose job is a painless procedure that requires little to no downtime.
Thinking about the main differences illustrated above, hopefully this article has made the rhinoplasty surgery and non-surgical procedures clearer to you. At this point, you may have a better idea of which path you wish to take. The best way to know for sure which procedure is more suited to you is to see a licensed plastic surgeon like Dr. Torgerson.
