Get the nose you’ve always wanted without going under the knife!
Over a more than 30-year career, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ronald A. Krueger has pioneered and innovated upon a variety of surgical techniques and adjuncts to promote the most precise, safe, and comfortable treatment experience. However, Dr. Kruger also has “nose” for the nonsurgical. More individuals in Mukilteo and across greater Seattle, Washington, have sought after and benefited from procedures that present a minimally invasive alternative to surgical treatments, such as rhinoplasty. With injection rhinoplasty, Krueger Aesthetics can achieve beautiful balance and attractive proportions – without the risk, downtime, and demands for recovery.
The rhinoplasty: “Nose job”
Generally, the traditional surgical rhinoplasty procedure involves accessing nasal tissues to re-sculpt a more pleasing and balanced nose. Individuals may not like their nose, a feature so front and center, for a variety of reasons. They may desire a more narrow or elevated nasal bridge or wish to soften flared nostrils, correct bumps and humps, and reshape overly bulbous, hooked, large, and drooping nasal tips. As with all surgical procedures, there are risks. It can take several weeks for swelling to go down, and since you depend on your nose for breathing, there are additional considerations that transcend the cosmetic.
The modern “liquid” rhinoplasty
Also known as a nonsurgical or injection “nose job,” this technique mainly involves using dermal fillers to improve the appearance of the nose. It may be appropriate for individuals who wish to resolve minor defects and bumps. With the precision administration of just the right amounts of hyaluronic acid-based fillers to just the right areas of the face, patients can also make their profile appear more attractive and achieve greater facial symmetry.
Dr. Krueger will not know if you are a good candidate for this alternative to surgery until after he evaluates your concerns and visits with you. Having a realistic outlook about this process is essential, as there may be some augmentation, reshaping, and other needs that can only be addressed through surgical intervention. In general, though, the liquid nose job avoids the need for:
- Anesthesia – it is generally tolerated well by most patients
- Considerable downtime
- Splints and other supplies and care associated with facelift surgery recovery
- Fast, and can be completed in around 20 minutes
- Easy to customize, injecting as little or as much of the filler to attain desired results
- Considerably more affordable than rhinoplasty
- Is not permanent (in case you want your “old nose” back)
Now, as with other injectable treatments, the liquid nose job gets temporary results. So, it is also important for us to discuss maintenance treatments. This process may even be a good “test drive” for those individuals who are on the fence about undergoing a surgical rhinoplasty.
