What Is a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Fillers such as Restylane® and Juvéderm® can be used to provide non-permanent adjustments to nose contour and appearance. Dr. Wilson performs non-surgical rhinoplasties on patients who desire subtle to moderate changes of the bump on their nose or the relative position and appearance of the nasal tip. Fillers in this area typically last from six months to two years, depending on patient factors and filler chosen. Some fillers are better suited for certain nasal corrections than others.
How Is a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Performed?
Dr. Wilson will first see an interested candidate in consultation. The desires of the patient as well as the anatomy of the nose are taken into account. The procedure is then usually done at the time of consultation. You will be provided appropriate numbing cream, which will be allowed to sit for approximately 15 minutes. The nose is then gently cleansed and the procedure is done. Often the complete correction is broken up into two separate visits to allow for minor adjustments after initial swelling has resolved. The second stage (touch up/perfection stage) is done at two weeks.
Who Is the Right Candidate for a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Patients who are interested in minor adjustments to the nose are good candidates. Typically, fillers can be used to mask small dorsal humps, sharpen nasal tips and can help camouflage traumatic defects. Patients with large dorsal humps and desiring either significant or permanent changes are not the ideal candidates for this approach.
