Since the popularity of nose job surgery has increased, more and more methods have been developed by surgeons. As a result, there are few different types of nose jobs available nowadays. In this guide, we have explained different types of rhinoplasty procedures so that you can decide which one is the proper technique for you.

What is a nose job?

Before reading about types of nose jobs, it is important to outline what a nose job is briefly. A nose job or rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that aims to enhance the shape of your nose. Rhinoplasty is most commonly done for cosmetic reasons; however, people can undergo this treatment for medical reasons or after an accident or injury.

What are the different types of nose jobs available?

After understanding what a nose job is, we will explain what specific techniques are available. Various rhinoplasty procedures are suitable, depending on the reasons and goals for your treatment. Each rhinoplasty procedure is carefully planned and unique to the patient’s concerns and requirements. Once you have decided to pursue a rhinoplasty, you must spend time with your doctor to plan the treatment and determine the correct technique for you. Below, we have laid out the main methods:

  1. Reduction rhinoplasty

Reduction rhinoplasty aims to reduce the size of some of the features on your nose. This method involves reducing the size of the bumps on the bridge, shortening an elongated or twisted nasal tip, or reducing wide nostrils. During this technique, the surgeon removes tiny amounts of bone or cartilage to make your nose more proportionate to the rest of your facial features.

  1. Augmentation rhinoplasty

In the additional rhinoplasty or augmentation rhinoplasty, the surgeon uses a bone or tissue grafting technique to build up the nasal tip and/or bridge. Augmentation rhinoplasty often involves using cartilage from other parts of the nose, usually the nasal septum. The tissue may also be taken from different body areas, such as the ear or rib, if necessary.

  1. Reconstructive rhinoplasty

Reconstructive rhinoplasty aims to rebuild the nose structure using skin grafts and other advanced methods. This method is suitable for those who have lost all or part of their nose due to an accident or illness. Due to the complex nature of this procedure, multiple surgeries may be required over several months, depending on the nose structure.

  1. Post-traumatic rhinoplasty

This type of nose job is typically undergone by patients who have broken their noses. However, it is a suitable option for people with cartilage damage, blood clots, or internal deviations within the nose. This type of surgery aims to address both aesthetic and functional problems following an injury.

  1. Refinement rhinoplasty

A refinement rhinoplasty is for people who are not happy with the shape of their nasal tip. Their dissatisfaction may be due to the degree of the nasal tip or the roundness or pointiness of it.

  1. Revision rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty or secondary rhinoplasty is used for patients who have already undergone at least one rhinoplasty procedure in the past and are not satisfied with the outcome of their prior surgery. This method revises either the appearance or functionality of the nose that has been damaged during the previously carried out surgery.

  1. Liquid Rhinoplasty

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty, also called liquid rhinoplasty, is a procedure that consists of injecting dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, underneath the skin to change the shape of the nose temporarily. Liquid rhinoplasties do not use scalpels to change the nose’s appearance, and once the fillers are injected into the nose, they instantly change the nose’s shape and appearance.

How much does a nose job cost?

The different types of nose jobs can also affect the overall price of your treatment. Rhinoplasty costs are highly depending on the method used and its complexity. Therefore, you should consider and discuss with your doctor when planning which procedure is more proper for you.
