At Halloween time in Tampa, a witch’s nose can be part of a great costume. But a nose job can correct a crooked, bumpy or oversized nose and create a more pleasing appearance the rest of the year. Whether your nose has been broken or whether you were simply born with a nose that is not perfectly formed, rhinoplasty (nose job) can fix many flaws you may have to craft a nose that better suits the rest of your facial features.
The most common reasons that people seek out nose surgery is because their nose does not fit their face. This could be because the nose is larger than desired or has an elongated tip that throws off the overall dimensions. The nose can also have a bend or a hump that draws unwanted attention or you may just be unhappy with the shape. Whatever the reason, there are different types of cosmetic surgery that can correct the flaw or reshape the nose to fit your face.
Two Types of Nose Jobs
There are two different types of nose jobs that can reshape the nose – one is a surgical rhinoplasty and the other is a non-surgical nose job. There are benefits to each method but the choice between the two may also be determined by issue that needs to be corrected.
A non-surgical nose job is accomplished using long-lasting dermal fillers such as Radiesse to add volume to parts of the nose or cheeks to change the appearance. Dr. Dominic Castellano, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, is an expert at using dermal fillers for non-surgical rhinoplasty. According to Dr. Dominic, using dermal fillers can “reduce the appearance of a hump on the nose or make the nose look straighter. The proper placement of dermal fillers can increase the projection of the tip of the nose or fill any depressions or contour irregularities.”
Non-Surgical Nose Job using Dermal Fillers
The use of dermal fillers can correct many issues but the treatment will need to be repeated every 9 to 18 months depending on the type of filler used. “Often, patients will try dermal fillers prior to committing to a surgical procedure” says Dr. Dominic and he recommends this practice as a way to get more comfortable with cosmetic surgery. It is a way to “try on a new nose” without having the permanent surgery done.
For some issues, surgery may be the only answer to reshape the nose or correct the flaw. If the tip of the nose is too long or droops, then a surgical fix is often the better answer. Also, rhinoplasty is a permanent solution that will last a lifetime. Elite Facial Plastic Surgery provides both types of nose jobs at its fully accredited medical facility in Tampa, Fl.
