Many patients seek out nose surgery to have their noses filed down for a more pleasing shape. Some want the size of their nostrils to be reduced. Others want bumps and ridges removed from their noses. We can repair old fractures and injuries as well as improve the cosmetic and functional aspects of the nose. The nose is supposed to look great, but it is supposed to breath great as well. We specialize in both of these areas to give our patients the best outcomes.
Having a rhinoplasty procedure with Dr. Smith, commonly known as a nose job, is an outpatient operation that can greatly change the way you look, breath, and feel. No matter what type of changes you want made to your nose, Dr. Smith can deliver what you are looking for. By meeting with Dr. Jesse Smith for a consultation, you can discuss the changes you want and describe the way you want your new nose to look. With a new nose, you may find that you have a new outlook and feel more confident meeting people face to face.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty (non-surgical nose job) is the use of injectable fillers to augment defects and change the shape of the nose without surgery. The Juvaderm and Restylane family of products, and occasionally Radiesse, are commonly used.
Who is a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Patients who are looking to reduce the appearance of a nasal hump, without undergoing surgery may be good candidates for the procedure. Similarly non-surgical rhinoplasty can lift the angle of the nose to prevent drooping, augment and refine the tip to prevent a boxy appearance, and fill depressed areas of the nose.
Can I use non-surgical rhinoplasty to “try out” a surgical rhinoplasty?
Yes. A non-surgical rhinoplasty can show you what you look like with a straight bridge or a corrected nasal tip. However, the procedure does not actually reduce any features of the nose, so it may be different from a surgical procedure.
How long does a non-surgical rhinoplasty last?
Generally, the effects remain for 1 to 2 years.
What happens if I am not happy with the results of my non-surgical rhinoplasty?
We can reverse the procedure with an injection that takes away the filler.
How long does the non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure take?
Depending on the amount of filler and technique used, the consult and the procedure can usually be done in 30 – 60 minutes. If you are returning for more filler, the filler can be placed in 15-20 minutes.
What is the recovery time for non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Some swelling and redness are occasionally involved with injections to the nose; however, these are usually minor and can be covered so that no one can notice anything except your new, corrected, and balanced look within 1-2 hours.
