What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a non-invasive procedure in which injectables are used to shape and contour the nose. This procedure is becoming increasingly popular with patients looking to make subtle changes to the nose. Lacking the risks associated with surgery, this temporary solution may be just what you’ve been waiting for! Here at the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Babak Azizzadeh performs the non-surgical rhinoplasty in a simple office visit.
All About Liquid Rhinoplasty
Sometimes referred to as liquid rhinoplasty, non-surgical rhinoplasty involves a combination of dermal filler injections to shape the nose. During your initial consultation, Dr. Azizzadeh will examine your nose and discuss your desired results with you. He will even use Vectra 3D imaging to create a visual of your nose so that you can see the possible outcomes and decide what you like.
Dr. Azizzadeh will then create a customized treatment plan that may include Restylane or Radiesse facial filler injections to the nose. The filler can fill in depressions, contour sharp angles, and improve symmetry. Hyaluronic acid gel fillers create smooth, natural-looking results.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Procedure
The actual procedure is performed in Dr. Azizzadeh’s office and generally takes only 30 minutes. Because there are no incisions, you do not need anesthesia. Filler injections are usually pain free, but Dr. Azizzadeh can apply a topical numbing agent if you are concerned about discomfort. You will be able to look in a mirror and guide the procedure the entire time to ensure you are happy with the results!
The non-surgical rhinoplasty does not involve any stiches, nor does it require downtime. Patients often return to their normal activities, including work, right after the treatment session. You may experience some slight redness, swelling, or bruising after treatment, but this should only last a few days. Results of non-surgical rhinoplasty may last up to 12 months, and the procedure can be performed again!
For patients seeking more severe nose revision, and/or those suffering breathing trouble, a non-surgical rhinoplasty may not be the best solution. Visit Dr. Azizzadeh to determine if a surgical rhinoplasty is the best option for your particular case.
