What Is a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
The nose is an interesting facial feature. You either hate yours, or don't pay much attention to it because it doesn't bother you. For those people that are bothered by it, surgery may seem like the only option to change the way it looks -- but it's not.
There IS a non-surgical way that has no downtime and makes a huge difference in appearance.
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. The most popular brands are Restylane, Juvéderm, and Radiesse. Each are unique in their formulations, making one or two more effective than the other in some people.
The filler is injected into the dips (lower areas) of the nose to lift and angle the tip. Fillers can also even out bumps on the the bridge that are located just above the bony protrusion (sometimes called a "hook nose"). It is important to note that this noninvasive solution is only an augmentation procedure; it does not reduce the size of the nose, but rather reshapes it.
How Long It Lasts
Most people report their non-surgical nose job lasts between 9 months and 2 years. Factors affecting the longevity of the results depend on the anatomy of the nose and the type of filler used. Some individuals have found that repeated treatments every year or two can make results last longer (up to 36 months).
Most people do not experience any adverse effects. Redness, tenderness, swelling, and bruising do occur in a small number of people, but it is temporary. These effects are much less cumbersome in comparison to a surgical rhinoplasty, which can come with serious risks such as infection.
How to Prepare for a Non-Surgical Nose Job
The best way to prepare for a non-surgical rhinoplasty is to book a consultation with James Christian Sardelli, RPA-C. He has performed this procedure on many people with favorable results. Not everyone is skilled enough to inject the right filler into the right areas to produce desired effects, so it is in your best interest to go with a professional like James who has years of experience.
