Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty vs Surgical Rhinoplasty
Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty Can Be Used as a “Test” in Some Cases
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is performed by injecting hyaluronic fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane into the nose to even out bumps, add volume to the nose, and define the tip. However, the fillers cannot shorten your nose, nor can they significantly alter its form. The fillers last about a year. Side effects include temporary redness, tingling, swelling and bruising.
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty can either be your permanent (though ongoing) solution, or an easy way to test out your new look until you are ready for surgery. In the hands of a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, surgical rhinoplasty should not result in any side effects greater than temporary bruising, swelling, redness and discomfort that can be managed with over-the-counter painkillers. It can take up to a year until you see your full and optimal results.
All surgical and non-surgical procedure have risks. Please discuss all risk during your consultation.
Very few people will find satisfaction with a nonsurgical nose job.
Thank you for your question. A nonsurgical nose job involves the use of dermal fillers to improve the shape and contour of the nose. The pros are obvious: you can avoid the discomfort and downtime associated with traditional rhinoplasty. On the downside, the results aren’t permanent and will require maintenance treatments. Also, there are limitations as to the improvements that are possible. The nonsurgical nose job can only add to the nose but can’t take away. Therefore, if the concerns with your nose involve it being too large or too wide or having too high of a bridge, you’re likely not a good candidate. To decide on what treatment is best to give you the nose you want, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in treating the nose.
