The 411 on Non-Surgical Rhinoplasties

What’s the difference between a traditional rhinoplasty and a non-surgical one? Well, the non-surgical variety is far less invasive, requires less downtime, and is a safer procedure with faster results. Bonus!

The process of a non-surgical rhinoplasty is fairly simple. Here are the steps:

  1. A topical numbing cream is applied.
  2. A small amount of safe, reliable dermal filler — such as Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane, or other preference — is injected into specific areas of the nose, depending upon the outcome you desire and what’s best for your procedure.
  3. The filler is then carefully sculpted to smooth out bumps and irregularities.

A few added perks of the non-surgical route is that it can take as little as 15-30 minutes, it doesn’t leave scars, and you’ll be able to see results in just 4 days if not immediately, depending upon the filler used.

However, there are a few limitations to the non-surgical rhinoplasty. It cannot improve breathing problems, make the nose smaller, or mask septal deviations. In certain cases, surgery is required. It all depends upon the patient and his or her specific needs.

While a non-surgical rhinoplasty may not be for everyone, many individuals who are looking to refine the appearance of their nose can benefit from this option.
