Going under the knife is a slang term used to describe someone who is undergoing a surgery and have a medical operation. The term was first recorded in 1880 when they used the word “knife” for surgery.
In the past, the only way to modify or make changes to the shape of your nose was by “going under the knife.” This type of surgical procedure is known as rhinoplasty or a “nose job.” A surgical rhinoplasty can accomplish cosmetic or functional improvements to your nose, or both.
In addition to surgical rhinoplasty options, Dr. Evan Ransom also offers non-surgical rhinoplasty options as well. No knives or surgical procedures are involved in non-surgical rhinoplasty. (more…)
Car dealerships know the value of allowing their customers to test drive a car. Customers are able to experience the positives and negatives of their potential purchase. Buying a car without first test-driving would be a foolish decision. Have you ever wanted to do a sort of test drive of plastic surgery? Have you wanted to experience some results of a nose job without the investment and permanent effects? There’s a way to experience rhinoplasty without committing to the entire surgical procedure using Radiesse. You may want to give a “test drive” to our non-surgical rhinoplasy to see if you’d like to consider surgical rhinoplasty in the future.
What Is It?
Rhinoplasty is one of the top five most common plastic surgery procedures performed each year. If you’re looking to try other methods to slim your nose, try using makeup to see if that will solve your nose dissatisfaction. Makeup artists are known for being able trick the eye, and contour makeup to slim noses. Here are some simple steps for you to try at home.
Supplies are important. You will need to purchase a contour powder or cream, a matte highlighter, an angled brush, foundation, and a fluffy blending brush or sponge.
Many patients prefer to avoid surgical rhinoplasty. This preference can come about for a variety of reasons, including fear of risks or desire to avoid downtime. One solution for these patients is a minimally invasive Radiesse injection to reshape areas of the nose.
A Radiesse injection will give your nose structure and add volume in the targeted regions to create a more even appearance. The results of this helpful non-surgical treatment will last for around 12 to 18 months from the date of the procedure. Your individual metabolism can have an effect on the length of time the Radiesse stays in your system.
Dermal fillers are not only helpful for restoring volume to numerous areas of the face and removing wrinkles, they are also great for use in non-surgical rhinoplasty. Bolstering the structure of the nose using dermal fillers is an effective method of solving various aesthetic nasal issues.
One issue that non-surgical rhinoplasty is able to solve is a droopy nose. When we inject a soft-tissue filler into the area where the upper lip and the nose connect, this creates a corrective boost for a droopy nose.
