If you don’t like your nose but do not want to commit to a surgical nose job, then you may be a candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty. Many people in Tampa are born with a nose that just does not seem to fit their face – whether you think your nose is too small or too large, has too long of a tip or is too wide, there are ways to reshape your nose to better suit your facial features. In the past, the only way to restructure a nose was with complex rhinoplasty (better known as a nose job). However, non-surgical rhinoplasty is available to fix humps, curves, irregularities as well as the shape of the nose itself.
What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a nose job that is done using dermal fillers rather than a scalpel and stitches. Dr. Dominic Castellano, a facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, pioneered a technique using injectable fillers to reform a nose without having to make any incisions or put the patient through invasive surgery. As an expert on the subject, Dr. Dominic has established the gold standard for excellent results for his patients and has outlined several benefits of his unique procedure:
Why Choose Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
According to Dr. Dominic, “non-surgical rhinoplasty can be performed in our accredited medical facility with little to no downtime for the patient. Some of the benefits include reducing the appearance of a bump or curve in the nose, make the nose look straighter or increase the projection at the tip of the nose. It can also correct deformities associated with a previous treatment or trauma, fill depressions or remove scars.” The corrections made with non-surgical procedures are not permanent but can last up to a year or 18 months depending on the type of dermal filler used to make the corrections. “Many of my patients like to ‘try on a new nose’ before committing to surgery and so our procedure is a great way to see the benefits without making a permanent change before they are ready” says Dr. Dominic.
Surgical Rhinoplasty can reshape the nose and reduce the size if too large for the face, but the surgery can be complicated and the recovery time rather long. For some issues, a surgical procedure may be the only option but for many of the most common complaints either surgery or dermal fillers can correct the symmetry of the face. The surgical solution is permanent so it is important to choose an experienced plastic surgeon to do the operation. A nose job is not for amateurs because the nose is so prominent and not only is a cosmetic feature of the face but a critical part of the respiratory system. That is one reason why some patients choose to try dermal fillers as a first course of action to be sure that they like the look of the changes before getting full surgery.
