The phrase “going under the knife” can strike fear even in the most courageous patient. This may never be truer than when contemplating any kind of rhinoplasty. As the nose is our most prominent facial feature, even small modifications and enhancements can significantly impact our overall appearance. So it is no surprise that some of our Beverly Hills patients are not quite ready or comfortable with the commitment and cost required for surgery. At Eos Rejuvenation, Dr. Nima has enthusiastically honed his technique in utilizing injectables to perform what is called a “Non-Surgical Nose Job.” With a skillful hand and artistic eye, Dr. Nima carefully places small amounts of “fillers” to hide bumps, straighten lines, lift and refine nasal tips, all without any incisions. The results are immediately evident and there is virtually no recovery downtime.
Your Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Consultation With Dr. Nima
The decision as to whether or not a non-surgical rhinoplasty is appropriate for you will be made in collaboration with Dr. Nima during your initial consultation. Dr. Nima will evaluate your nasal anatomy, your medical history, and will also cover your questions and concerns. He will take particular time to go over the type of results that can be expected from a non-surgical rhinoplasty and what types of issues can only be addressed surgically. Together, you will determine the most appropriate procedure for you at this time. By way of example, if your wish is to even out a few dents, or to accentuate the tip, the non-surgical route may be the most appropriate. However, if you wish to shrink the overall size of your nose, surgery would still be your best option.
Once the decision is made to proceed with a non-surgical rhinoplasty, Dr. Nima has a variety of solutions he may employ. For instance, the nose’s aesthetics can be subtly and favorably addressed with a combination of dermal fillers (such as Perlane or Restylane) and muscle relaxers, such as Botox or with Dysport. While most non-surgical rhinoplasty results are temporary, the effects can be maintained with periodic injections over time. Additionally, with repeated treatments, some filler will actually “adhere” and become semi-permanent in some Beverly Hills patients.
With non-surgical rhinoplasty, there is minimal to no downtime or discomfort. You can go back to work almost immediately. Results are instantaneous and, depending on the treatment, can last from months to 1-2 years. With repeated injections, results can last even longer.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Frequently Asked Questions
How will my nose be molded during Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty surgery?
With traditional rhinoplasty surgery, a plastic surgeon molds the nose by removing bone or cartilage or by adding cartilage grafts, but non-surgical rhinoplasty uses dermal fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane® to mold the nose, which is far less invasive than surgery.
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid gels that can be massaged and manipulated inside the nose to sculpt and shape the nose to make it look bigger or smaller as desired by the patient. Dermal fillers can also improve bumps, curves, drooping of the nasal tip, the profile of the nose, definition, and can even add height.
Can a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty reduce the size of my nose?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills can make the size of the nose appear smaller without removing tissue to reduce its actual size. This non-surgical nose treatment uses dermal fillers like Restylane®, Juvederm®, Restylane Lyft®, and Radiesse® that can be massaged and worked into the nose in ways that make the nose appear smaller. Even though it may seem as though dermal fillers could make the nose bigger, these injections help smooth out bumps and contour irregularities that may be contributing to a larger-looking nose.
During traditional rhinoplasty surgery, nose size is reduced by removing bone and cartilage to change the shape and structure of the nose. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a less invasive option that can be performed as frequently as twice per year or less to help patients maintain smaller noses.
Can a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty correct my broken nose?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty may help improve the appearance of a nose that has been broken but won’t actually fix or correct a broken nose. Many times, traditional surgical rhinoplasty is required to correct a broken nose, since broken bones must be repositioned and held in place by a cast to promote the healing process.
The best candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills are those who simply wish to improve the shapes of their noses by correcting indentations, bumps, droopy tips, and crookedness. Those who have broken noses can schedule a consultation with Dr. Nima to discuss the advantages of traditional surgical rhinoplasty.
Can a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty correct a dorsal hump?
A dorsal hump is the presence of excess bone and/or cartilage in the bridge of the nose that is prominent when looking at the nose from the side. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can improve the appearance of a dorsal hump using dermal filler injections. The hyaluronic acid gels in dermal fillers can be massaged and worked into the nose to fill in areas around the hump on the bridge of the nose and make it look straighter.
Those Beverly Hills patients who have dorsal humps can benefit from non-surgical rhinoplasty in that this procedure offers immediate results with no cutting, scarring, or downtime. Results may last anywhere between 6 to 12 months.
Can a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty reshape my nostrils?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty may help reshape the appearance of nostrils. Dermal fillers can be injected and massaged into the nose to make the nostrils look smaller, or to change their shape and structure. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is ideal for those who want to make minor improvements to the shape and appearance of their nostrils without the downtime normally associated with a surgical rhinoplasty.
Those interested in changing and reshaping their nostrils using non-surgical rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills can schedule a consultation with Dr. Nima.
