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.
Radiesse is the most common non-surgical rhinoplasty offered by Dr. Evan Ransom. He uses small, carefully planned injections of soft-tissues to change the shape of your nose. With the Radiesse rhinoplasty treatment you can accomplish a variety of adjustments to your nose.
- It can remove a “bump” on the bridge of your nose
- It can change the shape of your nasal tip
- It can lift a droopy or down-turned nose
- Injections last between 12 and 18 months
