Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Right for You?

When you are unhappy with the shape of your nose, it is not uncommon to feel as though the overall appearance of your face is affected. This is because your nose plays a role in the symmetry and aesthetic balance of your face, and exaggerated features in the nose are tremendously noticeable. While you may have considered a nose job, or rhinoplasty, what you may not know is that there is a non-surgical alternative that uses dermal fillers to change the shape of the nose. If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose but are not ready or able to undergo surgery, or you simply want to try on a new nose before you commit to surgery, a non-surgical rhinoplasty may be a great solution for you.

What problems with my nose could a non-surgical rhinoplasty address?

While a non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot make your nose smaller, it can address just about every other problem you may have with your nose. Many of our patients have bumps, dents or crooked noses, and others have noses that are flat or scooped at the bridge. Still, others lack shape at the tip of their noses. All of these issues can detract from other features of your face, and they can all be addressed with expertly placed dermal fillers. You can get a beautiful, new shape to your nose in a fast, outpatient procedure with essentially no downtime.

What will happen during my non-surgical rhinoplasty?

Your procedure will be performed under local anesthetic in our office. After carefully studying the contours and natural architecture of your nose and face, your surgeon will decide on the placement of the dermal fillers.  We use only the highest-quality, FDA-approved fillers for our procedures.

Once your skin is numb, you will have small amounts of filler injected in tactfully-chosen positions in your nose.  This is done using small injections, and you will feel nothing but pressure at the injection sites.  When your surgeon has achieved the shape that you desire, the procedure is over! In general, you can expect to be done in less than an hour, and your results will be immediately visible.

What to Expect During Recovery

Though you may have some slight soreness as the anesthesia wears off, you should not experience much discomfort after your non-surgical rhinoplasty.  You may have some redness or bruising afterward, but these can often be covered with makeup and will subside within a few days.  Otherwise, you can return to your normal daily activity once your procedure is complete! This approach can also let you try on a new shape to your nose before choosing surgery, and if you are unhappy with the results, the procedure is fully reversible.

Our patients are usually extremely satisfied with their non-surgical rhinoplasties, as you can experience a dramatic facial transformation with essentially no downtime. Many of our patients are pleasantly surprised by the transformative effects of this relatively simple procedure!
