Miracle Nose Reshaping Tools

Miracle Nose Reshaping Tools
Nose reshaping tools are being marketed as affordable and non-invasive alternatives to surgery.

One tool consists of flexible splints that can be placed inside the nose to alter the nose’s appearance. The curved-shaped splints create a pressure that holds them in place. Once inserted, they are not visible. This ‘do-it-yourself’ nose altering tool has typically been used for special occasions, but the splints are being promoted for everyday use. Other nose shaping tools, such as clamps that are placed on the exterior, purport to make the nose smaller.

Do Nose Shaping Devices Work?

Every nose is unique and while nose shaping devices claim to improve a range of aesthetic concerns, they may not be effective on everybody. When inserted, nose shaping devices may make the nose look narrower or straighter, but they do not provide a long-standing solution. They are temporary and cannot be used when sleeping, lying down, swimming, or doing any strenuous physical activity.

There is no scientific evidence that clamps are effective.

Alternatives to Nose Reshaping Tools

Non-surgical rhinoplasty (Non-surgical Nose Job) refers to a minimally-invasive procedure in which dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid fillers (e.g. Restylane) and Radiesse are used to smooth out bumps and other irregularities in the nose. During the a non-surgical rhinoplasty, dermal filler is injected beneath the skin’s surface; supple and easy to manipulate, dermal fillers can be sculpted to give the nose a new contour. No incisions are made and no bone or cartilage is removed during the process. Because a non-surgical rhinoplasty is a temporary solution, it often appeals to those who want to ‘preview’ results before committing to surgery. A non-surgical rhinoplasty has many advantages:

● Fast and painless procedure with few risks (dermal fillers are generally well-tolerated)
● Immediately visible results and no downtime
● No swelling or bruising
● More affordable than cosmetic nose surgery

Rhinoplasty (Cosmetic Nose Surgery), considered the gold standard procedure for the modification and enhancement of the nose, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. During a rhinoplasty, incisions are made and nasal tissue is removed or resculpted in order to reshape the nose. Though a rhinoplasty requires downtime and months to see results, the most patients consider the investment worthwhile. A traditional nose job offers the following advantages:

● Results are permanent
● Can alter and shape size of the nose
● Can address functional and structural problems, such as a deviated septum

Although non-surgical rhinoplasty and traditional rhinoplasty are very different techniques, they can both yield dramatic and natural-looking results. The ideal candidate for both procedures is in general good healthy and has realistic expectations. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose, it is best to consult a rhinoplasty specialist. A qualified professional can determine the solution that is best for you.
