Car dealerships know the value of allowing their customers to test drive a car. Customers are able to experience the positives and negatives of their potential purchase. Buying a car without first test-driving would be a foolish decision. Have you ever wanted to do a sort of test drive of plastic surgery? Have you wanted to experience some results of a nose job without the investment and permanent effects? There’s a way to experience rhinoplasty without committing to the entire surgical procedure using Radiesse. You may want to give a “test drive” to our non-surgical rhinoplasy to see if you’d like to consider surgical rhinoplasty in the future.
What Is It?
At San Francisco Center for Plastic surgery, we offer a procedure called Radiesse. It is made of biocompatible calcium hydroxyapatite, which is a normal part of bones and connective tissue. This filler is relatively firm and provides a good match for the strength and feel of the nasal tissues.
Why Is This A Good Option?
This procedure is a great option for someone who wants to try rhinoplasty without the financial and permanent commitment of surgical rhinoplasty. For most patients, the Radiesse injections last between 12 and 18 months. There are variable results with this depending on your unique anatomy and metabolism.
What Kind Of Results Can You Expect?
If you have a flat nose the non-invasive procedure can help accentuate the bridge more. The procedure can give you moderate nose reshaping. It can help with nose bump and hump reduction with the dermal fillers. It can also give you more smooth and symmetric appearance to the surface and shape of your nose.
Regardless of what nose dissatisfaction you’re experiencing, it’s a good idea to begin exploring the many options of rhinoplasty before making the decision that is right for you. Come in and discuss your nasal concerns and questions with Dr. Ransom at Rhinoplasty San Francisco.
