What is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a procedure in which injectable fillers are used to alter the shape of the nose without invasive surgery. It can greatly improve the appearance of bumps or asymmetry (crooked) safely and quickly, without the risks and long, painful recovery associated with a traditional Rhinoplasty surgery. If your nose aesthetic concerns you, then a non-surgical nose job might be a good option for you.
The non-surgical nose job has become an increasingly popular treatment in the nose surgery industry. We see this specifically in patients who lack soft tissue fullness over the upper nasal dorsum called the radix. This non-invasive procedure is an excellent alternative for patients whom are against undergoing a surgical rhinoplasty. Utilization of an injectable filler replaces surgery. The most common fillers used today are hyaluronic acid based. Fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm, but these only last for about six months. At the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute we prefer to utilize Radiesse, a long lasting filler made from coral that mimics calcium hydroxyapatite (a naturally occurring mineral form of calcium) and lasts up to two years.
But How Does it Work?
First, we provide either a topical or local anesthesia depending on the amount of filler that is required and the patient’s personal preference. Next, we inject filler under the nasal skin, generally in the deep subcutaneous tissue over the nasal bone. We “fill in” and fix unwanted dents, divots, or asymmetries. The beauty of this procedure is that we can achieve instant long-lasting results quickly and painlessly.
