Reshape and balance the nose without the hassle of surgery or downtime. Achieve immediate, excellent results.
The attractive, aesthetically balanced nose looks natural and harmonizes with the face. Irregularities of the nose, like a large hump or drooping tip, can draw unwanted attention and detract from other features of the face like the eyes or smile. At our luxurious Aesthetic Lounge, our providers offer nonsurgical techniques for nose reshaping that can help you achieve immediate, flattering results.
A nonsurgical rhinoplasty (also called a “liquid rhinoplasty” or “injection rhinoplasty”) is a technique that aims for the great results of a rhinoplasty without the incisions and downtime. This treatment uses dermal fillers, which are made with hyaluronic acid, a natural protein which exists in your skin and joints. With simple injections, the nonsurgical rhinoplasty creates minor changes to the nose to soften bumps, fill indentations, or improve the definition of the nasal tip.
If you’re interested in changing the shape of your nose without undergoing surgery, you may be a good candidate for a nons-urgical rhinoplasty. By carefully adding filler to different areas of the nose, your concerns can be softened or camouflaged. For example, nonsurgical rhinoplasty is often performed to soften the appearance of a bump along the bridge of the nose or to raise and refine the nasal tip.
It’s important to understand that a nonsurgical rhinoplasty can’t correct every cosmetic concern of the nose. For many patients, structural changes underneath the skin would be required in order to reduce overall bulk, refine the nasal tip, or reshape the nose. In these cases, adding volume to the nose with filler can have the opposite effect, so a traditional surgical rhinoplasty may be necessary to achieve your goals. Additionally, some patients who have already undergone rhinoplasty, or multiple rhinoplasties, may not be good candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty. This is because of the increased scarring and anatomical changes which can occur with surgery.
Our team will carefully evaluate your nose and your candidacy for nonsurgical rhinoplasty based on your medical and surgical history.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A NONSURGICAL RHINOPLASTY?
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is an excellent way to create minor changes to the nose which are not permanent and fully reversible if needed. Results are immediate and there is little to no downtime, which makes it a great option for patients with busy schedules. It’s also an excellent option for patients who are not ready to commit to a permanent rhinoplasty.
WHAT FILLERS ARE USED DURING A NONSURGICAL RHINOPLASTY?
While many different dermal fillers can be used to perform a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, our providers most often use Juvéderm Voluma® (Allergan), Restylane® or Restylane Lyft® (Galderma), or RHA-3® or RHA-4® (Revance). These are all hyaluronic acid fillers which offer long-lasting, beautiful, and natural-looking results.
WHO IS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR NONSURGICAL RHINOPLASTY?
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is best for patients who want minor changes to their nose. Patients who require more dramatic changes to the shape and structure of the nose are typically not good candidates for nonsurgical rhinoplasty. Instead, they would benefit most from a traditional surgical rhinoplasty. Your candidacy for treatment can be discussed during your consultation.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER A NONSURGICAL RHINOPLASTY?
There is no downtime needed after a nonsurgical rhinoplasty. Patients can return to their normal routines right away. However, it’s recommended that heavy exercise be avoided for the rest of the day. Results can last approximately 1 year (and in some patients up to 2 years) before most of the filler dissolves.
WHAT CONCERNS CAN A NONSURGICAL RHINOPLASTY CORRECT?
A nonsurgical rhinoplasty using dermal fillers is best for correcting humps, bumps, or bulges along the nose; a drooping tip, a nose that seems out of alignment and needs to appear straighter, dents or depressions, and other minor deformities. A nonsurgical rhinoplasty cannot improve breathing problems or correct a deviated septum.
IS A NONSURGICAL RHINOPLASTY PAINFUL?
Dermal filler injections into the nose are minimally painful. However, we routinely apply a topical anesthetic to the nose before treatment to ensure you’re comfortable.
WILL A NONSURGICAL RHINOPLASTY MAKE MY NOSE LOOK BIGGER?
Fillers are used to camouflage irregularities, improve symmetry, and refine minor contour irregularities of the nose. When performed by an experienced injector who understands the anatomy, indications, and contraindications for treatment, a nonsurgical rhinoplasty will not result in a larger-looking nose. A symmetrical and more balanced nose blends better with the face and doesn’t stand out like a nose with irregularities. In fact, many patients comment that their nose appears smaller after nonsurgical rhinoplasty.
HOW MUCH DOES A NONSURGICAL RHINOPLASTY COST?
The cost of a nonsurgical rhinoplasty is less than a surgical rhinoplasty. However, because most filler dissolves by 1-2 years, the procedure should be repeated to return the nose to its desired shape. Because this procedure is cosmetic, insurance will not cover it. Exact pricing for your treatment can be discussed during your consultation appointment with our surgeons.
What are the benefits of a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty offers little to no downtime, which makes it a great option for those with busy schedules. It can also be done to smooth any unwanted irregularities in the nose for a boost in confidence. It may also be a good choice for individuals who are not yet ready to commit to a permanent rhinoplasty since results are temporary.
