What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, or a non-surgical nose job, is a non-invasive alternative to surgical rhinoplasty. For people who decide they don’t want to go through surgical rhinoplasty (whether it’s because of price or downtime), and wish to improve the appearance of their nose, temporary fillers are used to perform non-surgical rhinoplasty. The Non-Surgical Nose Job or the “15 Minute Nose Jobs” is performed using dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Perlane®, Radiesse®. Temporary fillers are strategically placed to help camouflage bumps, create a better bridge in a flat, narrow, or scooped nose, refine the tip, correct imperfections and provide symmetry- which can make the nose appear smaller and more attractive.
Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Provide Permanent Results?
These fillers may be effective for about 1 year without any downtime.
"Nose jobs", rhinoplasty, or cosmetic nasal surgery, improves the shape and size of the nose. The procedure can remove a hump, change the shape of the nasal tip, and straighten the nose. The size and shape of the nostrils can be changed. The goal of rhinoplasty is often to achieve better harmony between the nose and the other facial features. The goal of any cosmetic surgery is enhancement, not perfection. Dr. Kassir is a triple board certified surgeon who has performed thousands of rhinoplasty surgeries for his patients and is considered to be one of the best Rhinoplasty surgeons in New Jersey and NYC.
Why is rhinoplasty one of the most popular cosmetic procedures?
The idea of being image conscious is not new, but it has changed drastically with the presence of social media. With social media, as a society, we are in spotlight more than ever before. Those engaging in social media platforms become much more aware of their appearance; people see themselves in pictures often, especially after major events. They see their own pictures that they snap and post, as well as pictures that others post of them that are floating around social media.They see celebrities everywhere and often desire their features; Angelina Jolie’s lips and Natalie Portman’s nose for example.
2013 saw a 31% increase in requests for surgery as a result of social media photo sharing. "Last year I experienced a 700% increase in patients seeking cosmetic procedures from social media," says Dr. Kassir. Of the procedures requested as a result of social media influence, rhinoplasty topped the list.
What age group do rhinoplasty patients fall under?
Most rhinoplasty patient fall between the ages of 18-30, which is the age group that mostly engages in Social Media Networks like Facebook, Youtube, Google +, Instagram, Twitter and Linkedin.
Fortunately, there is an alternative to surgical rhinoplasty, a non surgical one. For people who decide they don’t want to go through surgical rhinoplasty (whether it’s because of price or do
wntime), and wish to improve the appearance of their we can use temporary fillers to perform non-surgical rhinoplasty. Restylane®, Perlane®, Radiesse® can be used to camouflage bumps, or create a better bridge in a flat, narrow, or scooped nose. These fillers may be effective for about 1 year without any downtime.
