Non-invasive Rhinoplasty vs. Invasive-Rhinoplasty

By Donald T Levine Subscribe to RSS | January 2nd 2012 | Views:

Rhinoplasty is a procedure for correcting and reconstructing the form, restoring the functions, and aesthetically enhancing the nose.

The non-surgical rhinoplasty is a relatively non-invasive procedure that provides a simple technique to improve the aesthetic look of your nose. It is a safe alternative for traditional rhinoplasty or invasive rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most desired cosmetic procedures. The main differences between the two types of rhinoplasty are many but to name a few which create a great impact on the patients mind are discussed below:

1. Non invasive one is more preferred by the patients, as most of them are frightened about the potential complications and the risk of unfavorable cosmetic results in invasive rhinoplasty.

2. The non--invasive rhinoplasty surgery gives little and in most of the times no pain to the patient.

3. Invasive rhinoplasty normally carries inherent risks like scarring, infection and anesthesia complications. Whereas non-surgical rhinoplasty is a relatively non-invasive procedure that provides a simple technique to improve the aesthetic look of your nose.

4. Permanent disorders might crop up after the patient takes up invasive rhinoplasty like breathing disorders and cosmetic disorders like ski-jump nose and pinched nostrils. In many cases the patients might feel numb, persistent swelling, cartilage collapse or bleeding. Whereas non-invasive rhinoplasty eliminates the risk factor of nasal disorders, since the procedure only involves injection into the skin.

5. Comparatively non-invasive rhinoplasty delivers desired cosmetic results, so more adjustments to nasal contour are possible, with no future complications.

6. Since sedation is eliminated the patient is totally awake during non-invasive rhinoplasty. Hence the patient is fully in control of the procedure and the end result.

7. Non-invasive rhinoplasty can address major imperfections like lifting and straightening the tip of your nose or by hiding unwanted bumps with the same ease as minor issues that are associated with facial symmetry, such as a deviated nasal bridge.

8. Another most important aspect of difference is the recovery time. The recovery time in invasive rhinoplasty is a minimum two weeks from post- surgical process and several weeks to normal functions. And the final results might in some cases take up to one year to appear. Whereas in non-invasive rhinoplasty the recovery time is instant and in most cases the patient can drive down to the office after the process.

9. No diet or rest cautions are advised to patients who have undergone non-invasive rhinoplasty. The only caution doctors’ advice the patient is to avoid sun glasses for two weeks till the filler material integrates into the skin of the nose. Hence pricing becomes very economical in non-invasive when compared to invasive. Because invasive surgery needs post surgery medication too.

10. In invasive rhinoplasty the results cannot be altered and the correction is permanent whether good or bad. But in non-invasive rhinoplasty the fillers are filled in small quantities in precise locations. So the contours and the shapes are totally under control. Also the results are immediate and could last for eight months to two years depending on the filler used. With this convenience one could plan another sitting after the said time as per the face changes. This is a vital advantage where one feels natural and young always.

The main types of non-invasive rhinoplasty, varies on the fillers used for injecting into the skin. These fillers depend on the choice of the patient and the choice of material determines how long the result will last.

a) Hyaluronic acid products are available in various forms and under different trade names. These compounds are Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Captique etc., the effect shall last 6 to 12 months.

b) Calcium hydroxyl apatite is used dermal filler available under the trade name Radiesse. Because absorption of this material is slower, one can expect the fill effect to last one to two years.

c) Artefill is non-absorbable filler which is cleared by the FDA for cosmetic enhancement of deep facial creases such as nasolabial furrows. We can expect the result to be permanent.

So the right time to approach an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon is when you are unhappy with the way your nose looks? Whether you have a large nose in proportion to the rest of your face, have a bump on your nose, or have a nose that is off-center, or too flat and wide at the base or any other issue with your nostrils cosmetic looks.
