Are you interested in changing the appearance of your nose but are worried about invasive plastic surgery? For certain nasal issues, surgical rhinoplasty may not be necessary. Instead, patients can come in for non-surgical nose reshaping.
One nasal issue that can sometimes be solved with the use of non-surgical nose reshaping is a dorsal hump. A dorsal hump is a raised area on the bridge of the nose. To even out the bridge, the soft-tissue filler used in non-surgical nose reshaping can be injected into the areas above and below the hump on the bridge.
Rhinoplasty, or nasal surgery, can either be functional or cosmetic. While cosmetic rhinoplasty is specifically focused on improving the nose’s outward appearance to satisfy the goals of the patient, functional rhinoplasty has a different purpose.
Functional rhinoplasty is surgery that alters various internal and external nasal structures in order to make breathing easier for the patient. Because this type of surgery is viewed as important for health purposes, insurance companies are likely to pay for a portion of the procedure costs. To find out more about this possibility, contact your health insurance provider.
