A lot of people do not like the look of their nose. However, when they to go choose a “new nose,” they can also become quite bewildered, if not confused. Treatments abound for improving the looks of your nose so it pays to be informed when it comes to a treatment or surgery. Plus, you need to feel confident that the NYC doctor you are choosing is well-versed in the field of rhinoplasty.

In the past, when people referred to a nose job, they just thought of one procedure that changed the looks of their nose so it was more attractive. However, rhinoplasty today involves both surgical and non-surgical methods and therefore these options must be fully reviewed before choosing a procedure.

Kinds of Rhinoplasty Treatments

For example, revision rhinoplasty is done when someone does not like the outcome of a prior nose surgery. Procedures and treatments also cover such classifications as ethnic rhinoplasty, male rhinoplasty, teen rhinoplasty and micro-rhinoplasty. Liquid-rhinoplasty is also offered as is nose reduction surgery, septoplasty, broken nose surgery and virtual rhinoplasty. Therefore, given the offerings, it is important to choose a surgeon whose practice is devoted to this kind of surgery.

The Basic Definition of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty itself, involves a procedure where the cartilage and nasal bones are removed or modified and tissue, in some cases, is added to reshape the nose’s structure. The skin on the nose is not altered. Once the underlying bone has been revised, the skin conforms to the new shape, thereby resulting in a better-looking nose.

In order to meet this goal, the surgeon incorporates various techniques in order to make sure the new nose balances out with the patient’s other facial features. These methods may include modifying the width of the nostrils, altering the angle between the mouth and nose or reducing, enlarging or reshaping the nose, including the tip.

Nose Reshaping is a Popular Choice

According to a report issued by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nose reshaping is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. It is only second to breast augmentation in elective choices for surgery. Around 220,000 people annually have their nose reshaped. Following are the most popular procedures currently using rhinoplasty techniques.


One of the most popular new and innovative surgeries for the nose is MicroRhinoplasty™ – a surgical procedure that takes no longer than five minutes. This advancement in nose surgery allows the surgeon to remove a bump or lump on the bridge of the nose without needing to resort to the more invasive traditional techniques, such as fracture. Usually, removing a bump or lump is the most frequent request made by rhinoplasty patients. As a result, this form of rhinoplasty is welcome by a great many people.

Liquid Rhinoplasty

For any patient who wants to improve his looks without the need for surgery, liquid rhinoplasty may be the answer. The non-surgical treatment uses injectable fillers to modify the nose’s shape. The doctor is able to alter the size, position and shape of the nasal tip, straighten the nose or hide a bump. This procedure, for the right candidate, makes it possible to alter the looks of the nose without surgery.

Nose Reduction Surgery

Nose reduction surgery is another popular option for anyone who wants to revise the looks of their nose. Many people want a smaller nose and this surgical option is designed to help them achieve this goal.

Also known as reduction rhinoplasty, a nose reduction is a process where the bone and nasal cartilage are removed in order to obtain a smaller shaped nose. Small incisions are made inside the nostrils which allow the surgeon access to the underlying cartilage and bone. While the underlying structure is reduced, the skin on the outside is left intact. During healing, the skin will shrink to conform to the nose’s new and smaller shape.

The above-described procedures or treatments describe only a small sampling of the rhinoplasty options that are available to patients today. In order to find out more, schedule a consultation to discover what particular treatment option best meets with your own criteria for improving the looks of your nose.
