Lighter-on-the-wallet non-invasive touch-ups 

Budget-friendly Procedure:

Dermal fillers and hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers, such as Juvéderm, from $600 per syringe.

Reasons it rocks:

"Some people don't like the bump on their nose," Dr. Lista explains, "so instead of lowering the bump, we fill in the depression to straighten out the nose, which is much less invasive since it only takes half an hour and then you can go home."

Things that make you go hmm:

Dr. Bendago explains that this lasts about two years and is used to camouflage any bumps on the nose or help correct depressions in the nose profile but that it’s not suitable for “those who already have a large nose and want to slim it down.”

Big-ticket invasive surgeries: Longer-lasting and, in most cases, permanent results

High-level fix:

Rhinoplasty, $7,500 to $15,000, depending on how much work is needed

Reasons it rocks:

“Rhinoplasty can lead to very drastic results,” explains Dr. Bendago “but it can ultimately lead to a more harmonious balance for your face.” Dr. Lista says, “You get a totally resculpted nose because the foundation of the nose, the bone and cartilage have been reshaped for a permanent fix.”

Things that make you go hmm:

“This is a pretty major operation where you have to be put to sleep with general anaesthesia that can take anywhere from two to six hours, leaving you in a cast for a week with black eyes for up to two days, ” explains Dr. Lista.  Dr. Bendago adds, “This is a permanent fix, but revision is not an easy option.”
