Non-surgical rhinoplasty uses injectable fillers to change the appearance of your nose.
Dermal fillers are commonly used to diminish facial lines and wrinkles, enlarge lips and restore volume to cheeks. The same products are safely used off-label to correct nose imperfections.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is quite effective, but it can’t achieve all the results that are possible through surgical rhinoplasty. For example, it can’t repair a deviated septum or reduce the physical size of your nose.
Bump on the bridge: The bump is diminished and the nose gains a straight profile by filling in the area around the bump. Even though volume is being added, the nose looks smaller due to the improved profile.
Tip of nose: Fillers lift up the tip of a droopy nose, change the angle if the tip bends, and diminish the appearance of a bulbous tip.
Crooked nose: Injectable fillers correct sharp angles in the nose.
Depressions: Scar tissue or a low, flat bridge can be resolved with fillers.
Improve prior surgery: If you had surgical rhinoplasty and are not happy with the results, fillers may help you achieve more symmetry.
Many injectable fillers are temporary because they’re gradually absorbed by the body, while others may last longer:
Temporary fillers: Restylane lasts up to a year, while results from Juvéderm Voluma® XC can last up to 2 years. Both of these products are safe and composed of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body.
Longer lasting fillers: Bellafill® is a filler that contains bovine collagen and microspheres made from a surgical-grade plastic. This filler creates long-lasting results as the collagen in the injection is replaced by the body’s own tissue. However, you’ll need a skin test to be sure you’re not allergic to collagen.
Before Dr. Khorasani begins your non-surgical rhinoplasty, he will take photos so you can see before and after images. Next, a topical numbing cream is applied and left on for about 30 minutes. Dr. Khorasani then administers a series of precise injections.
The entire procedure takes about 15-30 minutes. When it’s finished, you may have minor bruising, mild swelling, or redness, all of which should resolve within 2 weeks.
