New Recession Friendly, Less Invasive Rhinoplasty Options from

Share Article

According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) three-quarters of procedures performed by facial cosmetic surgeons were non-surgical, highlighting a patient preference for less invasive and costly options. Injection rhinoplasty, also known as a non-surgical nose job, is among those methods gaining popularity. Not only does it provide patients with a less expensive alternative to invasive rhinoplasty, a non-surgical nose job requires minimal downtime and has far less risk than traditional rhinoplasty.

There’s no denying that most people are feeling the effects of a sluggish economy. However, the desire to look their best is still driving many patients to surgical and non-surgical improvements, with the latter becoming a more popular alternative, according to statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.1 2

While traditional rhinoplasty remains a top surgical procedure, injection rhinoplasty is growing in popularity as a lower-cost, less invasive option. FaceForum, an informational online guide to facial plastic surgery, offers a free article about non-surgical nose jobs, with information about the procedures, the type of fillers and other important information.

Developed by Yale trained cosmetic surgeon Dr. Alexander Rivkin, injection rhinoplasty is not only significantly less expensive than its surgical counterpart, it also eliminates the need for anesthesia and incisions. Recovery time is minimal, with most patients resuming normal activities almost immediately without the bruising and swelling typical of the more invasive nose job.

However, while injection rhinoplasty can smooth out the bumps, reduce the nose-tip droop, and in general, create a more streamlined profile, it doesn’t actually reduce the size of the nose. Plastic surgeon Renato Saltz, MD recommends that patients have a thorough consult with their physician to discuss their needs and desires as well as review photos of patients who have undergo the procedure.
