Nose Job (Rhinoplasty) Articles

Because cosmetic surgery is now relatively safe and predictable many people have become relaxed about safety precaution. A lot of emphasis is placed on trusting your cosmetic surgery doctor or board-certified plastic surgery doctor to give you the results you expect. This means many patients find out about their surgeon's qualifications and neglect to find out about the anesthesia or the accreditation of the surgery rooms.

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.

If you’ve been thinking about a nose job (rhinoplasty surgery is the techinical term), you may be apprehensive about going under the knife and having to deal with all of the risks and side effects. Nose job surgery continues to be one of the most sought-after plastic surgery procedures in the United States, but there are other options available. Some people choose to get a non-surgical nose job, also known as the 15-Minute Nose Job, to correct minor imperfections in the facial profile and improve the overall appearance of the nose.
