The Difference between Surgical Vs. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

The Difference between Surgical Vs. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty are two different approaches to altering the shape or appearance of the nose. Here’s an overview of the differences between the two:

Surgical Rhinoplasty:

Surgical rhinoplasty, also known as traditional or open rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. It involves making incisions either inside the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty) or across the columella (the strip of skin between the nostrils) with additional internal incisions (open rhinoplasty). This allows the surgeon to access the underlying nasal structures for reshaping or reconstruction.
Key aspects of surgical rhinoplasty:

  • Anaesthesia: Generally performed under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia with sedation.
  • Incisions: Incisions are made to access the nasal structures.
  • Alterations: The surgeon can modify the bone, cartilage, and soft tissue to achieve the desired results.
  • Recovery: Recovery time is longer, usually requiring several weeks for swelling and bruising to subside. A splint is often worn during the initial healing period.
  • Permanent results: Surgical rhinoplasty can produce long-lasting or permanent changes to the nose.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty:

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as liquid or injectable rhinoplasty, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of dermal fillers or injectables to reshape or enhance the appearance of the nose. The procedure is typically performed by a qualified practitioner and does not require incisions or anaesthesia.

Key aspects of non-surgical rhinoplasty:

  • Anaesthesia: Generally performed using topical anaesthesia or local anaesthesia at the injection site.
  • Procedure: Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based fillers, are injected into specific areas of the nose to add volume, fill in depressions, or change the shape.
  • Alterations: Non-surgical rhinoplasty is limited to adding volume or changing the shape by filling in depressions or enhancing certain areas. It cannot reduce the size of the nose or make structural changes.
  • Recovery: Minimal downtime is required, with patients able to resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some temporary swelling or bruising may occur.
  • Temporary results: The results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are temporary and typically last several months to a year, depending on the type of filler used. Follow-up treatments are usually necessary to maintain the desired results.
