Can I reshape my nose without surgery?

You’re not alone if you’re considering a permanent operation to change the shape of your nose. Rhinoplasty was the third most popular plastic surgery procedure in 2018, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgery. But what if the recuperation time, cost, or mere thought of going under the knife puts you off? Winter Park Plastic Surgery offers a number of non-surgical and surgical options for changing the contour of your nose.

Fillers for the Skin

Dermal fillers can be used to slightly alter the shape of your nose. Your cosmetic surgeon will assess the optimal shape for your nose and inject dermal fillers into crucial places to smooth out any lumps or strange forms. Dermal fillers are ideal for individuals who do not want to commit to a surgical procedure because they are not permanent.

The average duration of dermal fillers is six to twelve months. Following that, you might choose to have follow-up sessions. Many people utilize dermal fillers to simulate the appearance of their nose following rhinoplasty. In fact, many patients are so pleased with their fillers that they opt for rhinoplasty after the fillers wear off.

Rhinoplasty

Although dermal fillers are an excellent non-surgical nose job, a rhinoplasty is required to completely change the contour of your nose. Some patients choose rhinoplasty because they can’t get dramatic results with dermal fillers or because they need to rectify a past injury. Rhinoplasty can also be performed to alter the structure of your nose to make breathing easier.

Is There Any Scarring on Your Body?

It’s reasonable to be concerned about scarring because your nose is in the middle of your face. To reduce apparent scarring, you should work with a highly trained, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Greenberg.

Dr. Greenberg makes small incisions in your nose along the natural creases using modern surgical methods and skills. You’ll get the best results with the least amount of downtime thanks to his years of knowledge and skill.

What Should You Expect in the Way of Downtime?

The most crucial aspect of any post-surgery treatment is to give your body time to recuperate. However, you should be able to resume your normal activities within a week. Around your eyes and nose, you may have pain, swelling, and bruises. The majority of people say that these adverse effects are easily manageable with over-the-counter drugs.
