When interviewing doctors, prospective patients should ask them about their approach to rhinoplasty. It is important to choose a doctor who addresses the airways, as well as the external structure of the nose. Even if a patient is undergoing the procedure for purely cosmetic reasons, the doctor should work to protect the nasal passages so that the patient can maintain normal breathing patterns.
A technique called “tumescent liposuction" is the most common method for removing fat around the stomach, buttocks, thighs and ankles. It’s also considered the safest. “Tumescent” means that large amounts of buffered salt water are injected into fatty tissue beneath the skin. The doctor makes a cut in the fatty area to be treated, then inserts beneath the flesh a strawlike tube called a cannula that is attached to a vacuum. At the end of the cannula is a stiff wand. The doctor moves it back and forth in rapid motions to loosen fat. The procedure takes 45 minutes to two hours, with a recovery time of up to two weeks. The full effect of liposuction is seen six to 12 weeks after the procedure is performed. After the procedure, the area is bandaged and the patient must wear a compression garment for one to two weeks. Pain and bruising may last up to two weeks, and swelling may last for two weeks to two months.
There are many pros and cons to both a non-surgical nose job and a surgical rhinoplasty. Some of the advantages that people love about a non-surgical nose job (completed with dermal filler) is that it is fast and easy. In less than 15 minutes, a bump can be masked or a bridge created. Another great advantage is that if you were considering a rhinoplasty, but wanted to test the waters first, you can have a non-surgical nose job completed. *If you realize that the look is not for you, the dermal filler used on your nose is dissolvable and reversible.* Some of the disadvantages to this temporary nose job is that it will only last around 9 months depending on the type of injectable filler used, so you would have to return on a regular basis to maintain your results. Another disadvantage is that not everyone is a great candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty depending on what needs to be done to improve or correct your area of concern.

Thank you for your question. This is a difficult question to answer because there is not a set price for liposuction. Price should not be your determining factor for choosing who does your procedure. Your first question should be is this individual properly trained? Are they a board certified plastic surgeon? How many of these procedures do they do? Also, what is the technique that they are going to use? Prices are usually determined by the location that you want treated and the facility you are having the surgery. We do have a policy of giving larger discounts when there are multiple areas being treated at the same time. Please remember higher prices do not always equal a better result, but the lowest price may not be the best decision either. This is a decision that should be based on trust and experience.
