Can Non-surgical Rhinoplasty Be Combined with Usual Rhinoplasty? Will It Give a Better Result?

Doctor Answers 8

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty procedures may be very helpful for correcting irregularities after nose job surgery.

Injectable fillers are not used at the time of Rhinoplasty Surgery, but may be used afterwards to improve the appearance of your nose. My personal preference is to use Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results.

Rhinoplasty Combined with Fillers

There is no advantage to using fillers during a rhinoplasty. If a minor correction is necessary after the initial surgery, fillers can be useful.

No surgical rhinoplasty doesn't exist

There, now that that's said let me explain.  A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure. It involves changing the shape of the nose the bone, often the tip, possibly the width of the nose, etc.  What you are calling a non-surgical rhinoplasty is merely the use of fillers to correct minor irregularities.  

As far as doing a rhinoplasty after correction with fillers it would depend upon how  much and what type was used. I would try to wait at least a year after using fillers.  Good luck, Dr. Schuster from Boca Raton.

The Role of Injectables Fillers After Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is the placement of injectable fillers to plump out indentations or irregularities in the nose. It is not done nor it is any benefit at the time of a surgical rhinoplasty. It may be beneficial as an after rhinoplasty treatment should small imperfections exist. To avoid further surgery, fillers can be used as a temporary improvement measure for improving nasal contours.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty

A non-surgical rhinoplasty usually refers to injecting filler into the nose.  However, I would caution using products in the nose and expect a result like a rhinoplasty is the majoirity of cases. One can not refine the tip by just injecting it.  Certainly can not shave down a dorsum either, or narrow the nose,etc.

Non-surgical Rhinoplasty Combined with Usual Rhinoplasty

The surgical rhinoplasty usually involves some work that would make it impossible to put in filler material (a non-surgical rhinoplasty) at the same time or would damage previously placed filler. It is possible to add filler several months after the surgery has healed.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty vs rhinoplasty

There is really no reason to combine the two. The only reason fillers are used to do non-surgical rhinoplasty is to avoid surgery. But, the non-surgical results are not permanent. If you are having surgery, it would make the most sense to address all concerns surgically for a final, permanent outcome.

Non-surgical vs surgical rhinoplasty

Non-surgeical rhinoplasty uses fillers in order to correct minor areas of the nose. When used properly it can give impressive results. The results typically last about a year. While it certainly is possible to use fillers during surgery there is really no point. Surgery should be able to make all of the correction permanently. Sometimes cartilage grafts will be used. These are the ultimate fillers. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is best for minor corrections in patients want to reduce cost and recovery.
