Surgical vs Non-Surgical Nose Job: Which Nose Job Should I Get?

A rhinoplasty can address a number of issues.  When it comes to the nose there are so many options available including reshaping and rebuilding the nose with new and exciting, groundbreaking non-surgical methods that can provide a temporary new bridge.

The Rise of Rhinoplasty

The nose plays an important part in bringing form and balance to the face. Rhinoplasty continues to gain popularity as one of the most common cosmetic procedures administered. And while technology and technique has changed over the years, one thing is for sure – changing your nose has never been as easy as it is in 2017.

The Doctors

Recently, publisher James Moorhead paid the set of the TV show Doctors a visit, to see if he could have his nose reconstructed. Following years of regularly using cocaine, Moorhead’s nose collapsed, and he needed it completely rebuilt. In a revolutionary procedure, Dr Calvert used bone from two of Moorhead’s ribs to make dorsal reconstruction grafts to take the place of the bridge and add support for his brand new nose. Dr Calvert also uses cartilage grafts to create nostrils, and when the cartilage is combined with facsia, he can smooth out the reconstructed nose.

In minor rhinoplasty cases, where the individual patient may just want changes to the way their nose looks with minor adjustments, they can expect a much less traumatic procedure, but one that still provides significant alterations.

One of the critical trends that Cosmetic Surgeon Dr Stevens sees at his practice; Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, has been the increase in rhinoplasty that preserves ethnic features, instead of just one perfect nose.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

There is one more option available to patients who want adjustments to their noses – the non-surgical nose job where dermal fillers are used to alter the shape of the nose on a temporary basis. Dr Alexander Rivkin, a renowned surgeon in the field of non-surgical nose jobs, uses dermal fillers like; Restylane or Radiesse to smooth out bumps or to change the angle of the nose and all in just 15 minutes time. This method is not permanent, but it’s a quick and efficient option for those individuals who don’t want invasive surgery.

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for ways to complete nose reconstruction or for an entirely new look that is specialised to your face and ethnicity – rhinoplasty can help change your facial profile. Modern methods mean better long-term results, and now revolutionary technology offers short-term results. For more information on rhinoplasty visit
