Toronto is known as one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Because of this, Dr. Torgerson is able to treat patients from all different ethnic backgrounds with skill, knowledge, and expertise. Many Asian patients are seeking an Asian Rhinoplasty or Non Surgical nose job in order to create a defined bridge while still looking natural. African-American patients seek out Dr. Torgerson’s non-surgical rhinoplasty in order to define their tip or lift their bridge without making them look different or more Caucasian. No matter what the nationality, preserving one’s ethnicity is important, while still giving a natural and improved result to the nose with injectable filler.
One of the biggest factors affecting the total cost is if you need to have a second surgery. Because your nose swells during the operation, the surgeon may get a false impression of the final shape of your nose. As the swelling goes down, it may become apparent that a second surgery is necessary to achieve the look you want. Approximately 15 percent of rhinoplasty surgeries require a second surgery.
Cost is incredibly variable. It depends on the city and the provider. If you go to a plastic surgeon in New York City, it costs a lot more than seeing a non-plastic surgeon in a rural area. There are plenty of non-plastic surgeons offering discount liposuction. But, this can be somewhat risky due to their limited training backgrounds. And bad liposuction is very difficult to fix - I perform a lot of revision liposuction trying to fix poorly performed liposuction.
Because liposuction can involve significant shifts in the body's salt and water balance and requires sophisticated medical equipment, it's important to only have liposuction with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Weinberg, at a recognized and fully certified facility like Mississauga Cosmetic Surgery Clinic. For the strictest attention to safety, Dr. Weinberg always performs liposuction in an accredited surgical facility or hospital and limits the amount of fat he removes in a single surgery.
The wonderful thing about our Plastic Surgery Centre is that only doctors exclusively inject our patients. Knowing that the knowledge, ability and personal experience of a doctor are all being employed to ensure the top results helps put clients at ease and makes the experience as safe as possible. Dr. Torgerson is very particular about dermal filler injections and carefully assesses each patient’s facial structure to ensure quality results. Furthermore, companies that produce and distribute injectable filler around the world routinely request Dr. Torgerson to provide innovative training sessions for other physicians and nurses in order to train them in the latest techniques.
Although these side effects will eventually go away on their own, patients can take precautions to minimize their severity and speed recovery. Pain medication can reduce discomfort, and antibiotics can help control the symptoms of sinusitis. Some surgeons may prescribe drugs immediately after treatment. Patients should take these medications as directed. They should always finish each prescription, unless otherwise instructed by their doctors.
If desired, the non-surgical rhinoplasty can be performed at the same time as the initial consultation. The treatment itself takes less than 15 minutes and is very comfortable for the patient. Most injectable filler includes Lidocaine, which is a freezing agent that helps the whole experience become tolerable and easy for the patient. Dr. Torgerson carries only the best in injectable filler products, all of which have a great safety record and are approved by Health Canada. Dr. Torgerson and his patients can decide which dermal filler would best suited for the desired result. Patients can choose between Restylane, Perlane, Teosyal Global, Teosyal Kiss, and Juvederm. These dermal fillers each have benefits that work well for a non-surgical nose job. They are created with Hyaluronic Acid and generally last approximately 1 year in the nose. Because of the temporary nature of an injectable filler, a non-surgical nose job will have to be maintained approximately every 9 months to a year, depending on how fast your body metabolizes the product.
Through the use of injectable filler, the nose can be injected to straighten a nasal profile, lift a droopy tip, create a nose bridge, or smooth out a visible bump. For patients who seek to correct mild imperfections in the aesthetic appearance of their nose, non-surgical rhinoplasty is rapidly becoming a popular alternative to surgery. The Non-surgical Nose job cannot make a larger nose appear smaller or improve breathing, so it may not be for everyone. Some patients will need to consider a primary rhinoplasty as a treatment option for their desired changes. The non-surgical nose job can, however, correct imperfections on the nose, making it more balanced and symmetric with the rest of the face. This restores facial harmony and can result in a very pleasing, natural appearance.
Your recovery will depend on the area or areas treated. Recovery times vary from patient to patient, but someone undergoing liposuction on the abdomen or thighs should plan to take 1 week off from work. Compression garments are worn in the first few days following the procedure, but many people choose to wear them for longer because they help with swelling and support. Limited activity is encouraged immediately to help in the healing process, but more strenuous activities should be avoided for 2 to 4 weeks. Bruising is usually gone within a week or 2, and swelling may take up to 6 months to resolve entirely.
Rhinoplasty can be performed in one of three places: private surgical suites, ambulatory surgical centers, or hospitals. You should speak with your surgeon and make certain that their chosen venue has been accredited by an organization such as the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAA), the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), or the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
Rhinoplasty is among the five most popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States, with more than 200,000 procedures performed in 2013 alone.  During the procedure, a plastic surgeon sculpts the cartilage and bone of the nose to achieve a patient's desired look. For men and women who are unhappy with the size and shape of their nose, rhinoplasty, otherwise known as nose reshaping surgery or a "nose job," offers a safe, effective, and time-tested cosmetic solution. When performed by an experienced, skilled cosmetic surgeon, rhinoplasty can greatly improve the balance of facial features, helping patients discover newfound confidence. Rhinoplasty can also be used to correct structural defects, including those that cause breathing problems.
With modern technology, patients can actually get a picture of the results of their rhinoplasty surgery. Digital imaging technology allows surgeons to construct 3-D virtual models of a patient's face and the future appearance. It is important to note, however, that while this 3D model will serve as a guide for the surgeon, there is no guarantee that the nose job will yield those precise results.
“Insurance will typically cover procedures to help improve nasal function (i.e. septoplasty, nasal valve repair, turbinate reduction),” says Dr. Sam Naficy, a Seattle facial plastic surgeon, in a RealSelf Q&A. “The extent of coverage varies based on the details of the insurance plan. Insurance will not cover procedures that improve the appearance of the nose but are not necessary to improve nasal function.”
Patients may require reconstructive rhinoplasty if they have lost all or part of their noses to an accident, skin cancer, or another serious illness. During the treatment, a surgeon rebuilds the nose using skin grafts, flap techniques, and other advanced methods. Due to the complex nature of this procedure, patients may require multiple surgeries over a period of several months. Additionally, reconstructive rhinoplasty is a specialized procedure, and patients should look for surgeons who have extensive experience in this area.
Dr. Kamak (PhD in Pharmacy) is an artist with the threads, he loves to use anywhere in the body, and recently he started to use them for a butt lift, especially if the client does not need extra volume. The PDO threads are made of the same material as the wound stitches. The material is hypoallergic, with no metal residue. The material is biocompatible (it blends with the body tissue) and biodegradable (it dissolve by itself over time). The 360 bi-directional barb threads lift the tissue up against the gravity and hold it in place. Over time, new collagen builds up and replace the threads to provide a natural tether to keep the tissue lifted. It is widely used for a non-surgical facelift and we started to use it in different parts of the body
