Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty: which is better?

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

Rhinoplasty (nose job) has traditionally been a surgical procedure to reshape the nose. This involves making small incisions outside and inside the nose to access the underlying bones and cartilages in order to modify their size and shape. However, as minimally invasive procedures are becoming more popular in medicine, non-surgical rhinoplasty Los Angeles has been tried for nose reshaping.

A number of injectable tissue fillers have been FDA approved in recent years such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, and Radiesse. These injectables have been used for correction of facial wrinkles. Many Los Angeles plastic surgeons have started injecting these fillers in the nose in order to alter the shape of the nose. For example, injecting the filler above and below the bump on the bridge allows to hide it achieving a straight appearing nasal bridge. The fillers can also be injected in the tip to improve the definition of the tip and give an illusion of a raised tip.

So, which rhinoplasty procedure is better? Both procedures have been highly popular. The advantage of non-surgical rhinoplasty Beverly Hills is that it takes 5-10 minutes to perform and has very minimal or no swelling associated with it. It works well for patients who have a small bump on the bridge of the nose or a mildly droopy or short tip. By making the nose bigger in certain areas, a more aesthetically pleasing shape can be achieved. The length or the width of the nose, however, cannot be reduced with these injections. The results of non-surgical nose job Beverly Hills usually last 4-7 months.

Surgical nose job Los Angeles is preferred when permanent changes in the shape of the nose are desired. Unlike the non-surgical option, with surgery the length and the width of the nose can be reduced. Furthermore, any co-existing breathing problems or nasal asymmetry can be improved. In general much better results and more significant changes in shape can be achieved with surgical nose reshaping.

A Scarless Nose Job: Open vs Closed Rhinoplasty

Friday, December 19th, 2008

The nose is the central part of a person’s face. How the person’s face is perceived to a large extent depends on the size and shape of the nose as well as the balance of the nose with the rest of the face. It is not surprising that a large number of people turn to plastic surgeons to improve the shape of the nose. The beauty and movie icon city is no exception – in Los Angeles Rhinoplasty procedures are among the most popular.

Nose reshaping surgery or nose job is called rhinoplasty. Most Beverly Hills rhinoplasty experts will agree that rhinoplasty is the most difficult plastic surgical procedure. The two common techniques to peform rhinoplasty are close and open approaches. Increasingly, in high awareness Beverly Hills Closed rhinoplasty (also referred to as endonasal rhinoplasty) is gaining prominence.

In open rhinoplasty, an incision is made across the bottom portion of the nose the skin is elevated exposing the underlying cartilages and bony structures. Even though in most patients the scar is may not be noticeable, there are many patients who complain of the visible or notched scar following an open rhinoplasty. Certain groups of patients are more prone to developing unfavorable scars including patients that have thick skin and patients with olive and darker color skin. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to remove the scar.

Closed rhinopasty (endonasal rhinoplasty) is performed through incisions inside the nose which avoids external scars. Using a closed rhinoplasty approach the nose can be effectively reshaped and breathing can be improved. Recovery after closed rhinoplasty is usually faster than after open rhinoplasty. Sutures are placed and inside and do not need to be removed as they are absorbable. Closed rhinoplasty requires a higher level of surgical experience. Regardless of the approach used, outcomes following rhinoplasty largely depends on the surgeon’s experience with this procedure. There are far fewer Los Angeles Closed Rhinoplasty specialists, as it is a different skill set. To learn more about closed rhinoplasty visit .
