What You Should Know About Nose Reshaping Surgery

What does it mean exactly “beauty”? Some people claim that beauty is in proportions, other – in the chaos. Aesthetic laws try to convince people that the beauty is in harmony and equality. They have succeeded. You can notice that in fashion shows participate only girls with symmetric faces. Cheekbones are perfectly high, eyebrows are with equal hard angles and everything is in perfect harmony. What is the role of the nose in this harmony? Let me say this, noses are altered in every possible way – people hide them under tons of makeup, surgeons operate them, aestheticians inject them fillers. All this, in the sake of the perfect shape. Nose reshaping surgery is popular all around the world. Skilled plastic surgeons refine natural beauty and give their patients the symmetry that they desire.

What exactly is nose-reshaping surgery?

Another name to call it is Rhinoplasty and it has a long history. People from early ages try to change their noses through piercing, for example. Today having a nose that is not the same proportion as your face could be glory ruining. Having a perfect nose is a blessing, so people who undergo a nose reshaping surgery have their reasons. The surgery might change many things, not only the shape. For example, rhinoplasty might change the cartilage, the nasal structures, the skin and the bone. Most people just know they want different nose but don’t know exactly what surgeon will change. That’s why it is so important to have a good surgeon who will explain you everything in details. He should pay attention to your goals and offer you a solution. People don’t want to have straight nose, bumps or big nasal tip. Probably, you don’t like your nose, too.

Who can undergo a nose reshaping surgery?

As long as you are at least 16 years old and your nose is fully developed, you might book an appointment for a consultation and see what surgeon will recommend you. Sometimes people think they want to have a plastic surgery but soon after that, they change their mind. That’s why being sure about something big is not easy. If you are emotional right now better calm yourself down and then make a decision. You should have in mind that plastic surgeries change you forever and you can’t reverse the process. Every surgeon will ask you at least 2 times if you are sure that you want to undergo a permanent procedure. If you are not or have some doubts, it will be better to share with him.

Another thing every expert surgeon will want to talk about your expectations. If he thinks some change is too drastic or you won’t look good with it he will tell you. Most plastic surgeons are delicate and try not to convince patients in their opinion, but they will say it loud and clear.

Is it easy to find a good surgeon?

how to choose nose surgeon

Depends on your country and your financial preparation. Don’t think that the most expensive always is the best. Choosing a plastic surgeon that has an expertise in nose reshaping surgeries is tricky. Some countries, like Singapore, have many specialists who have international experience and enough practice. Some other countries don’t have so developed aesthetic medicine and it could be really tricky to find the one surgeon who suits you. Many people travel to Singapore to undergo their aesthetic procedures and after their recovery, come back where they live.

Another good piece of advice is to choose at least a few surgeons and go talk with all of them. When you communicate with them you will feel who is the best one for you. Don’t hurry with your choice because it is not something that you can mishandle without consequences. Your plastic surgeon will choose what type of rhinoplasty is for you – open rhinoplasty closed or triplasty. He will tell you what you might expect as results. He will show you photos of his previous patients and their results. There is a chance to ask you about non-surgical nose jobs if you are willing to do that instead of the plastic surgery. Some noses are not suitable for dermal fillers so surgery is the only option but yet you should consult this with the expert.

Non-Surgical Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

If you read rhinoplasty advertisements, you’ll see many that promote a procedure widely known as non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Non-surgical nose surgery is the process of making a nose look better by injecting semi-permanent fillers such as:

  • Juvederm
  • Restylane
  • Radiesse

What the ads don’t say:  non-surgical nose surgery is primarily for noses that need only minimal augmentation or small touch-ups.

Consequently, rhinoplasty sans surgery accounts for less than five percent of nose shaping procedures. Plus, the fillers last only about a year or less.

In any case, you should probably consider health before beauty. A lot of people opt to have a nose surgery because that can also be used to improve one’s breathing or fix certain breathing problems they might have. If you’re interested, you can read more about the benefits of nose fillers at Tai Tai Magazine. After this, you might want to consider how much the non-surgical rhinoplasty cost.

The human body is a complicated thing and a lot of things can go wrong when you start changing things and inserting things that shouldn’t be there naturally. This is why you should always look for the best and most experienced medical professionals you can afford, and saving money on such procedures is never a smart idea. Especially in the facial area where there are a lot of muscles and nerves – a lot can go wrong.

On average, a non-surgical nose job in Singapore costs around $800-$1000.

Filler injections are actually used only in very few places on the nose, including:

  • Around small nasal bumps
  • To fill in the depression on a boxer’s nose, something your surgeon knows as a saddle nose deformity
  • Ski slope noses
  • Small pits or depressions on the sides of the nose
  • The depressed area between the top lip and nose

However, you would need an invasive rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of very large noses, for tip reductions and large humps. Many Asian and African-American patients, who have a flat bridge, ask for facial fillers to build up that part of the nose.

In a few cases, silicone – instead of face fillers — is injected into the nose. I personally don’t recommend silicone due to the high chances of developing lumps and bumps, or granulation, just under the skin and due to the possibility of infection.
