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…)
If you have an area of your nose that is too low or too flat, you may require volume during your rhinoplasty. There are common places that need volume such as your bridge, sidewall and your tip. Another area on your nose that may require more volume is on the edge of your nostril. If your nostril is high, it can sometimes benefit from an addition of volume.
There are times when you can achieve added volume without undergoing surgery. If you’re not prepared to take the step to get surgical rhinoplasty to add volume, then non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty may be the right choice for you. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be applied to cases that need a bridge build up, to lift a droopy nose or to correct asymmetries caused by deviations. (more…)
