A nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a noninvasive alternative to the traditional nose reshaping procedure that uses dermal fillers to subtly sculpt the appearance of the nose and achieve an improved nasal contour. This procedure offers patients less pain, shorter recovery times and faster results by avoiding the need for surgery and incisions altogether.
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is ideal for patients seeking to make slight improvements to the appearance of their nose and do not wish to undergo surgery. It is not recommended for those patients with major nasal deformities. This treatment is most effective in camouflaging deformities such as minor humps and bumps as it fills in surrounding areas and creates a smoother, natural-looking appearance.
This procedure is performed using only a local anesthetic so that you remain awake and able to communicate with your surgeon during treatment in order to achieve your desired results. Fillers such as Restylane®, Juvéderm® or Radiesse® are injected into the skin of the nose to fill in depressions, smooth sharp angles or alter the tip of the nose for a more attractive, harmonious appearance. Treatment is customized based on the facial anatomy of each patient and their individual goals for treatment. This procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform in Dr. Felderman’s office.
After a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, patients can return to work and other regular activities the same day with little to no side effects. The results of this treatment are visible right away and may last for up to two years. Routine touch-up appointments can prolong the results of nonsurgical rhinoplasty and allow patients to continue to enjoy their enhanced appearance.
This treatment is considered safe for most patients, especially when performed by an experienced surgeon. However, certain risks do exist, including asymmetry, swelling and bruising. Dr. Felderman will address these risks and answer any questions you may have prior to treatment.
