This non-invasive procedure offers significant benefits. The treatment is non-invasive and allows you to improve the appearance of your nose without surgical intervention to smooth a bump on the nose bridge or raise the nose tip – with carefully administered dermal fillers. A non-surgical rhinoplasty can produce truly remarkable improvements for patients who are seeking a subtle change in nose appearance.
Dr. Rahban often performs this procedure at his Beverly Hills plastic surgery clinic. The success of the procedure is based upon the meticulous care with which the fillers are administered. There is no better board-certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles to re-shape your nose with a non-surgical nose job.
What is a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
While traditional rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves incisions and a lengthy healing process, non-surgical rhinoplasty is a non-invasive procedure that produces immediate results.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty utilizes hyaluronic acid fillers to reshape nose structure. Fillers are injected into the nose to alter shape and produce an even, symmetrical appearance. Dips or bumps in the bridge of the nose can be corrected through the use of fillers to create a smoother look. The treatment is also effective in correcting a drooping tip, flat nose bridge, or uneven nose structure.
While traditional rhinoplasty alters the structure of the nose, non-surgical rhinoplasty is much like any other injection procedure. The effects of hyaluronic acid fillers are not permanent, but can last up to a year or longer for some patients.
When considering a non-surgical nose job, your doctor may recommend any of a number of fillers, depending on your unique case.
What issues can be addressed with a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
While the size of your nose cannot be reduced with a non-surgical rhinoplasty, fillers can actually make the nose appear smaller. Dr. Rahban is a skilled plastic surgeon with years of experience, and has the technique to create the illusion of a less prominent nose with injectable fillers.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is typically used to address issues such as:
- Minor irregularities
- Asymmetrical nose shape
- Hump on nose bridge
- Bumps or dips
While not every nose structure flaw can be corrected with fillers, many patients are surprised at how effectively the nose structure can be altered without surgery. To find out if this procedure will be effective in your case, Dr. Rahban will assess the cosmetic issues that are of concern and advise you whether a non-surgical rhinoplasty is appropriate.
What to Expect During the Procedure
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a short procedure. The treatment requires under an hour to perform and produces immediate results. As only local anesthetic is used, little recovery time is needed. The appropriate dermal filler will be injected into specifically targeted areas of your nose structure to create a more balanced, attractive look.
What is recovery from a non-surgical nose job like?
While a surgical rhinoplasty involves a several months for the full results to appear, a non-surgical rhinoplasty has little to no downtime. Many patients have their non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure at the end of the week, and by the start of the work week, they are fully recovered. Some patients notice some mild bruising at the injection sites that quickly disappears.
