Nose job surgery remains one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures for men and women. Traditional rhinoplasty surgery involves altering the bone and tissue structure of the nose and often the septum. However, with new advances in dermal fillers, some patients can benefit from a non-surgical rhinoplasty using filler injections. Some may still require a surgical procedure better or full results. When it comes to surgical vs. non-surgical rhinoplasty, which is better?
The answer to this question depends on a few factors. First, the anatomy of your nose. If you have a severely deviated septum that is causing breathing problems or sinusitis symptoms, you will likely require surgery to repair this. While a nose filler could provide some cosmetic benefits in this situation, it will not solve the larger problem. Although, if you simply have an unwanted hump or bump on the nose that is not causing breathing hindrances, non-surgical rhinoplasty may remedy this.
Secondly, if you have the option to choose either the surgical or non-surgical route, it will likely come down to preference. If you are anxious or hesitant about a surgical rhinoplasty, the non-surgical rhinoplasty can allow you to “try out” the possible results. Additionally, if you want a more cost effective option and are okay with having to possibly refresh results in the future, the non-surgical rhinoplasty may be best.
Finally, a rhinoplasty surgery will require recovery and downtime. In contrast, patients can mostly return to their normal lives following a non-surgical nose job.
