Germany rhinoplasty market size

According to the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report 2018, nose reshaping or rhinoplasty was among the top five cosmetic surgical procedures globally in 2017 and 2018, of which 75.0% procedures were performed on women. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, rhinoplasty is the most complex facial surgeries has the revision rate as high as 15.0%.

Technological advancements in the products and procedure techniques used for rhinoplasty are anticipated to expand the options available to patients and physicians alike, thereby boosting the demand. Adoption of techniques, such as 3D osteotomies integrated piezo tone and intraoperative navigation during surgery and availability of FDA approved ultrasound devices have improved the precision of the procedure. The 3D osteotomies with integrated navigation have eliminated the need for blind maneuvering and aid extensive procedures while ultrasound devices are anticipated to reduce the rhinoplasty revision rates.

Furthermore, the on-going development of the electromechanical reshaping method for non-surgical rhinoplasty is anticipated to further boost the demand over the forecast period. This technique uses electric and tiny needles for nose reconstruction. The technique is estimated to avoid the scarring, change in sense of smell, stitches, and breathing difficulties associated with the traditional rhinoplasty. Researchers have already evaluated this technique in animals and are presently working towards the determination of the safety of this technique in humans.

Social media is also anticipated to play a vital role in fuelling the demand in the market. The increasing influence of social media has fuelled the trend of selfies and desire for the picture-perfect face. Various photo-editing options offered by the social media applications have enabled users to identify the required facial alterations to achieve an appealing image, thereby further fuelling a desire for a flawless appearance. For instance, according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive data, nearly 30% of patients seek reconstructive treatments to fulfill their social media needs. Also, the growing adoption of smartphones and the increasing amount of time spent on social media platforms by the millennials are projected to boost the demand for cosmetic surgeries, thus indirectly facilitating market growth. The easy availability of procedure information, patient experiences, and surgery reviews on social media websites is also anticipated to positively influence the demand.

Treatment Type Insights

Based on treatment type, the rhinoplasty market has been segmented into seven categories namely, augmentation, reduction, post-traumatic, reconstructive, revision, filler, and others. Augmentation rhinoplasty dominated the market in terms of both the market revenue and share in 2018. This is attributed to the use of the treatment type for the improvement of the structure and function of the nose.

Increasing cases of failed rhinoplasty procedures are anticipated to contribute to the rise in secondary rhinoplasty procedures required to correct the deformities caused during primary rhinoplasty. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, about 94.0% of surgeons performed a revision rhinoplasty in 2018.

Technique Insights

Based on technique, the market has been segmented into open and closed rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty dominated the market in 2018 and is anticipated to remain dominant and expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The ability of the technique to undertake extensive and complex nasal surgeries is anticipated to fuel the segment growth. The open procedure is not only used as cosmetic surgery but also to improve nose functions. The increased surgical exposure offers direct visibility for better results in case of difficult nasal anatomy and overall diagnostic accuracy.

Global rhinoplasty market share

Closed rhinoplasty is associated with minimum scars post-surgery and is less invasive. However, this procedure has several challenges due to the technical limitations associated with restricted access. Closed rhinoplasty is performed in case of minor modifications to the nose. Both techniques require highly skilled surgeons to avoid complications.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the overall market in 2018. Well-developed healthcare infrastructure and the presence of board-certified and skilled cosmetic surgeons in North America has fueled regional market growth. Moreover, the adoption of advanced technology coupled with rising consumer consciousness regarding physical appearance is projected to drive growth.
