Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Overview
A non-surgical rhinoplasty can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes to perform. The most common dermal fillers used to perform the procedure are Restylane, Juvéderm, or Belotero. Each of these fillers is composed of hyaluronic acid in a clear gel form, and they are all non-allergenic, safe, and completely degradable.
At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our board-certified dermatologists are considered leading experts in the industry and have played pivotal roles in clinical trials and research studies that have led to many of the most effective dermal fillers becoming FDA approved. Our dermatologists commonly use Restylane for non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures. Regardless of which filler is used for the treatment, the filler is injected into the depressed areas on the patient’s nose to achieve the desired look, whether it be angling the tip of the nose or smoothing out the appearance of bumps.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures are almost painless, but everyone’s pain tolerance is different. Certain patients might experience some pain or discomfort in the more sensitive areas of the nose, such as the top of the nose, the nostrils, and the columella.
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is commonly used to correct the following facial features:
- Projection of the nasal tip
- Flat nasal bridge
- Nasal asymmetry
Who is a Good Candidate for a Nose Job Filler Treatment?
A patient of any ethnicity can be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty alternative. Additionally, patients who have previously undergone a traditional rhinoplasty and were not satisfied with the results can find solace in repairing the problem using a liquid nose job.
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a great option for patients who are looking to create symmetry or correct any irregularities with their nose, especially if a patient is unsure if they want to commit to a permanent procedure (such as the traditional nose job). The results from a non-surgical rhinoplasty can last anywhere from 1-2 years.
What to Look for in a Doctor
No matter what type of procedure you are having, there are a few key things to consider when finding the doctor that is right for you. You should find someone who is an expert in the specialty that performs your procedure. For example, the dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are experts when it comes to injectables and has extensive experience helping patients get the best possible results from dermal fillers. Do your research. Make sure that the doctor you are considering has experience, credentials, and good reviews!
What to Expect
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) in the human body. High concentrations of hyaluronic acid are found in the fluid surrounding the eyes and soft connective tissues.
Since hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the human body, it is extremely compatible when injected to the nose or anywhere else as a dermal filler.
Two weeks following your initial procedure, you will come in for a follow-up and our dermatologists will assess your procedure. If further augmentation is needed or any revisions need to be made, it will be done at that time. In the meantime, the healing and recovery process completely depends on the patient.
Some patients can continue their normal activities and go on with their day while others may experience slight swelling and bruising that could go away in a couple of hours or last up to two weeks. Having a non-surgical rhinoplasty will not impact your breathing, as it does not change the shape of the nasal cavity.
