Summary: Having been developed there, it’s no surprise that the nonsurgical nose job in Los Angeles are quite popular. But what is the difference between a traditional rhinoplasty procedure and the innovative nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure? And how do you know which you’re a good fit for? These are good questions, and the answers might also tell us something about the current pathway of cosmetic surgery in general. Then again, at the end of the day, just about everything relies on what you want to get out of your procedure.
Fad or Rad?
Cosmetic surgery has always, by its nature, been an innovation driven industry. Competition forces doctors and surgeons to develop the next big thing, perhaps, a bit more quickly than in other medical fields. It’s not surprising, then, that sometimes there are fads which develop in cosmetic surgery, and it can be difficult to tell the fad from the tech, the sales pitch from the innovation. We all want to be on the cutting edge because that’s what lets us get the most bang for the buck, the best results with the least pain, but there’s always that chance we’ll go too far and end with results that don’t last the test of time.
Among the hottest trends in cosmetic surgery today—among the newest innovations—are nonsurgical procedures. What makes this set of procedures a trend instead of a fad is that they address a real need of cosmetic surgery patients. There are many patients for whom the pain and time involved in recovery are a real roadblock to considering cosmetic procedures. Among the first procedures to get the “nonsurgical” treatment was one of the most popular procedures of all time: the nose job, otherwise known as rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty’s enduring popularity is a testament to the nose itself. Among the pieces that make up the human face, the nose plays a prominent role in determining the effect of the overall proportions. Sometimes, that role is too prominent. It’s difficult to change the shape of the eye, and it can be fairly intense to change the entire shape of your face with chin augmentations or a facelift. Changing the nose is relatively simple, and due to the central role it plays in the overall proportion of your face, you get a lot of bang for your buck.
Often performed on an outpatient basis, most rhinoplasty procedures will either remove some nose tissue or add some tissue. The goal is to create a nose that is of just the right proportions—both in and of itself and with the rest of the face. Recovery from this procedure can take a while, partly because the nose has a reputation of being an intensely painful point in the body, and also because you might be required to wear special garments in order to best protect your results. The good news is that, if those results are protected during the recovery process, your new nose will be relatively permanent, and you won’t have to worry about the overall shape of your nose again.
Cosmetic surgeons the developed nonsurgical nose job in Los Angeles, CA, with an emphasis on exceptionally quick recover and instant results. There are no actual incisions in nonsurgical rhinoplasty. Rather, your cosmetic surgeon will inject dermal fillers usually used for liquid wrinkle treatments into your nose. The amount of filler injected will determine the overall shape of your nose. The results are not permanent, which is part of the appeal, as it makes the nonsurgical nose job a great fit for someone who needs a temporary boost in her look. The procedure can usually be accomplished over a lunch hour, after all. The watch words here are quick and easy.
Which Should You Choose?
Which rhinoplasty option you choose depends on what you want. If you want quick results for that meeting next week, the nonsurgical rhinoplasty is your best bet. This is also true if you’re particularly sensitive to pain, or if you’re concerned about pain in your nose. On the other hand, if you want to remove tissues or bulk from your nose, nonsurgical rhinoplasty simply will not work. Likewise, if you want permanent results, there’s no beating a traditional rhinoplasty procedure. That said, the duration of your nonsurgical rhinoplasty results will depend greatly on the filler your surgeon decides to use. If you want longer-lasting results, choose a filler that lasts longer, such as Artefill.
Not Just Your Nose
Liquid fillers are being used in all kinds of nonsurgical techniques. If you want your cheeks a little more filled, or your jawline to be smoother, there are nonsurgical options for that. These procedures are wonderful for those patients and candidates who might otherwise be hesitant to pursue cosmetic surgery in any fashion. So if you’re that person that loves the results but hates the work, don’t worry—cosmetic surgery is coming your way.
