Rhinoplasty, between aesthetic and functional correction
The main difference between them is that they have specific indications.
– Medical rhinoplasty consists in injecting fillers like hyaluronic acid fillers, in order to instantly correct the shape of the nose, painless and without anesthesia. This procedure is performed when minor irregularities need to be corrected: a hollow, a hump, asymmetry or lifting the nose tip.
In these cases, the non-surgical rhinoplasty is an augmentation technique that avoids performing an unnecessary cartilage transplant.
– As far as the surgical rhinoplasty is concerned, I always emphasize the importance of the psychological approach and the aesthetic analysis for optimal outcomes of the procedure. Our aim is a morphological improvement in the most natural way, in perfect harmony with the whole face and the patient’s personality.
The 3D imaging is one of the tools I gladly use to explain the possible outcomes to my patients.
Moreover, patients can use the 3D morphing to express their expectations. It’s a very useful tool that helps us both understand each other and agree on the final project.
