Non Surgical Rhinoplasty Articles

If you have a big bump on your nose or an asymmetrical nose shape that is making you self-conscious about your appearance, you might have considered getting rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery, to fix your facial profile. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that 255,972 rhinoplasty procedures were performed in 2009 alone. While the nose job continues to be a popular procedure for both men and women, it does have some risks. The non-surgical nose job can be performed in 30 minutes or less, and offers an alternative to going under the knife.

If you look in the mirror and are not happy with your nose, chances are you have thought or are thinking about getting a nose job. Rhinoplasty Surgery (nose-job surgery) can dramatically improve your self-confidence and help you look and feel your best.

If you’ve ever wondered what you might look like after a nose job, or rhinoplasty procedure, you can take advantage of virtual nose job tools to see images of your face after surgery. Many plastic surgeons now use virtual plastic surgery tools during your consultation so you can get an idea of what you'll look like after your selected procedure.

By the time Tanya turned 30, she had already hated her nose for more than 10 years. "I always wanted a more feminine nose," she says. While her own nose wasn't unusually large, she felt it was out of proportion with her face. "I inherited my dad's nose, which wasn't completely straight and was bulbous on the tip."

Along the road of life there are sure to be bumps, or so the cliche goes, and for the most part, you can do nothing about them. Except, of course, when those bumps are on your nose. For more than 300,000 Americans a year Rhinoplasty, or a "nose job," has helped correct such unsightly nasal bumps and bulges. For many more, however, this type of correction would never be an option. Forget the average price tag of $3,332 not including anesthesia, it hurts; don't let the whimsical "nose job" nickname fool you. Besides, how can you be sure you will be happy with the results? Well, for patients who can't handle the bumps anymore, but aren't yet ready for major surgery, California doctor Alexander Z. Rivkin may have found a solution: the Non-Surgical Nose Job.
