The differences between rhinoplasty and non-surgical rhinoplasty

Aesthetic Surgery

Both rhinoplasty and non-surgical rhinoplasty are used to correct certain aspects of the nose, but they are two different techniques. Below we will explain the differences between rhinoplasty and non-surgical rhinoplasty, and we will take a look at the different applications and benefits of each of them.

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that modifies the shape or size of the nose, in order to adapt it to the shape of the rest of the face or to allow for improved breathing. This is done by modifying the nose’s cartilage and bones.

What is non-surgical rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a non-surgical treatment used to correct the nasal profile. As stated, it is used to modify the profile of the nose and is ideal in two specific cases: for those looking for just a slight adjustment, and for those patients who fear not liking the results after having gone under the knife. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is done by injecting certain substances into the nose structure.

Main differences between the treatments

As we have seen, the main difference between these two techniques is that rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that modifies certain parts of the nose, mainly the cartilage and bone structure.

In turn, non-surgical rhinoplasty is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment and is done by injecting filler substances such as Hyaluronic acid or Hydroxyapatite to correct any slight asymmetries related with the nasal tip. It can also be used for aesthetic purposes to better adapt the nose to the rest of the face.

Advantages of both

The main advantages of rhinoplasty are:

  • The size, width, and shape of the nose can be modified.
  • It can be used to correct any age related deterioration to the nose.
  • It offers immediate results, which are definitive after six months.
  • It allows for characteristic features of the nose to be corrected.
  • It delivers very natural results.
  • It is a great solution to improve the proportions and harmony that the nose has with the rest of the face.

On the other hand, the most significant benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty are:

  • It is not a permanent treatment, meaning any adjustments needed to better match up the nose with the face can be made at any time.
  • It is a non-invasive procedure that provides immediate results.
  • In most cases, it does not require anaesthesia, and if required a local anaesthetic is applied.
  • There is almost no recovery time, and the results are immediate.
  • It is a quick and pain free procedure, and you’ll be able to get straight back into your everyday routine.

What is the best option for my nose?

It depends on your overall objective. Rhinoplasty, as a surgical procedure, is a great option when it comes to reducing the size of the nose or adapting it to the rest of the face and individual facial features.

However, in the case of those patients who only want to improve their appearance with a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure, non-surgical rhinoplasty is the ideal treatment to correct certain proportions with the forehead or lips which are either disproportional or aesthetically unpleasing. It essentially creates an area that corrects the width and length of the nose, as well as the back, tip and proportions of the nose with the rest of the face.

Some of the main reasons as to why a non-surgical rhinoplasty would be recommended over rhinoplasty are:

  • When the patient wants to naturally improve the static sculpture of their nose.
  • To enjoy an improved and aesthetically pleasing nose without undergoing surgery.
  • For treatments at the back of or on the tip of the nose.
  • If a patient has especially thin nasal skin.
  • When the patient could be at risk by undergoing a rhinoplasty.
  • In those cases in which only a slight asymmetry  needs to be corrected.
  • When a patient only wants to correct the tip of their nose.
  • If there is an inverted V deformity and the patient does not want to undergo further surgery.
  • In secondary rhinoplasties, or patients with any predicted defects.
