Do You Want to Get Your Nose Reshaped? Three Things You Should Know

Plastic surgeon st petersburg fl

Every year, about 243,000 people decide to get their nose reshaped, a process also known as rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedures are one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the U.S., ranking only behind breast implants. Here are three things you should know about rhinoplasty, if you have been considering it as an option.

1. What is the cost of getting plastic surgery?

The average price for this procedure is around $6,500, though this number can vary widely depending on how extensive your issues are, how experienced the surgeon is, where you live, et cetera. On the plus side, the procedure is permanent, so this is a one time, lifetime investment.

2. Are there non surgical cosmetic procedures that I could get instead?

Yes, there are, in the form of injections. Because it is an injection, this is a procedure intended for people who need filling in, rather than cutting out. Hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, and polymethymethacrylate are three common fillers used to fix issues such as bumpy noses, droopy nasal tips, flat nasal bridges and more. Certain fillers are temporary, lasting for about a year, while others are fairly permanent.

3. What are rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedures actually like?

Each procedure will be different depending on the needs of the patient, and the process of the plastic surgery doctors. The patient will be sedated with local or general anesthesia, and the doctor will usually make a cut into the lining of the nostrils or across the bottom of the nose, depending on the issue that needs to be fixed. They will then break, shave, remove or rearrange bone and tissue so that the nose can take on a new shape. Nasal splints and tape must be worn for several weeks after the procedure.

    the fillers sound interesting! having bones broken and crunched sounds way too intense, but a filler, I could be okay with.
