Summary: Why do people get rhinoplasty in 2020 when they could undergo a non surgical procedure instead? The answer lies in the limitations of non surgical, non-invasive approaches. A surgical rhinoplasty procedure will be able to achieve a much more significant transformation than a non surgical approach.
Why Do People Get Rhinoplasty in 2020?
The nose job is one of the most well known plastic surgery procedures on the planet. Everyone (or just about) knows what a nose job is and what it does. Lately, this surgical procedure seems as though it’s been overshadowed by its non surgical counterpart. If you can get a non invasive nose job, the thinking goes, why would anyone get a surgical rhinoplasty in 2020?
And that logic is hard to dispute. But it is incomplete. Even in 2020, the non surgical nose job can only go so far and do so much. For a large portion of people, then, surgical rhinoplasty will be the best way to achieve their desired results–even in the new year.
What Can a Rhinoplasty Do?
If you’re looking to find out what a rhinoplasty can do in 2020, you’ve come to the right place. Though, the honest answer is that rhinoplasty hasn’t really changed all that much in the last few years (that has the potential to change, thanks to cool new 3D printing technology). Generally speaking, however, rhinoplasty can do what it’s always done: it can change your nose.
And this procedure can change your nose in some pretty fundamental ways:
- Increase size: Thanks to the use of implants (some of them 3D printed), rhinoplasty can increase the size of your nose. You can make the bridge of your nose look larger, the tip of your nose, you name it.
- Decrease size: One thing that non surgical nose job can’t do is make your nose smaller. But surgical rhinoplasty can. Many patients wish to have certain elements of their noses appear smaller, in order to bring the entire nose into better alignment.
- Decrease droop: A drooping nose can be caused by a few different things, but one of the most common is certain muscle connections between the nose and the mouth. Surgery can correct this.
- Change shape or orientation: Surgical rhinoplasty can also change the shape or orientation of the nose in significant ways. This is especially useful in therapeutic situations, where a nose is repaired after a past trauma. (But it’s often used in aesthetic situations as well.)
Surgical rhinoplasty can make significant and powerful changes to the nose. In the coming years, those changes will likely continue to look more natural than ever before (again, thanks in no small part to new 3D printed implants).
Why Do People Want Rhinoplasty in 2020?
All of this brings up a pretty interesting question: why do people want rhinoplasty in 2020 in the first place? What motivates people to undergo this procedure year after year? There are several good answers to that question, but it’s important to keep in mind that each and every answer should be personal.
That is, the only reason that truly matters is your reason. So it’s important to spend some time thinking about why you want your rhinoplasty, and why you’d like your nose to change.
That said, there are certainly some common reasons why someone might undergo a rhinoplasty procedure. The nose is at the very center of the face–it holds all of your features together and can often create a sense of balance and harmony in the face. When the nose is out of proportion, patients can feel as though the nose draws too much attention to itself. In other cases, the nose has been traumatized and patients simply want to return their noses to their previous appearance.
Whatever your reason is, a highly qualified plastic surgeon will be able to help you determine whether rhinoplasty–in 2020 or any other time–is the right move for you and your desired results.
