Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty (Nose-job)

A non-surgial rhinoplasty (“nose job”) can be an ideal option for a patient desiring subtle nasal re-shaping  but is unsure about undgoing rhinoplasty surgery.   Injectable fillers, such as Juvederm, Voluma or Radiesse,  can be used to resolve the appearance of bumps, drooping tips, and crooked noses, safely and quickly, without the risks, costs  and long, painful recovery normally associated with rhinoplasty surgery.

NOTE:  It is important that this procedure only be done by an experienced ENT or facial plastics surgeon.  The blood supply to the nose as well as the intricate anatomy must be fully understood before fillers or fat are injected.

A non-surgical rhinoplasty using injectable fillers is best suited to patients with subtle contour issues such as a deep supratip or a depression on the bridge, tip, or nostril (alar rims) rims.  It is also an ideal solution for fixing minor imperfections such as a minor asymmetry or lack of desired volume on one part of the nose to understate another part of the nose (to hide a bump or divot).

In addition, some patients may benefit from temporary fillers to demonstrate some of the effects of a future rhinoplasty.  Since the results of these subtle changes using injectable fillers are temporary, lasting on average about a year,  it is an ideal solution for somebody not yet committed to the resulted new look, or for somebody in the process of saving for a more permanent rhinoplasty surgery.    It is unlikely that a non-surgical rhinoplasty will correct the overall shape when a real rhinoplasty is indicated, but some patients only require subtle filling of depressions or valleys of the nasal skin and cartilage instead of a complete rhinoplasty.  And due to the instant results, the patient can enjoy their new look without having to undergo a long, painful recovery process, and for a small fraction of the cost.

How is it done?

Non Surgical Nose Job (Non Surgical Rhinoplasty) takes about fifteen to thirty minutes, and is performed right in our offices.  A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin of the nose on the area being treated. The injectable filler chosen by your doctor is injected to fill in depressions, smooth out sharp angles, or change the angle of the tip of the nose, restoring symmetry and perfecting the appearance of your nose. Unlike a surgical rhinoplasty performed under general anesthesia, the patient is awake during the procedure making it possible for the patient to look in a mirror and have control over the results.
