Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty (also known as Non Surgical Nose Job or the 15-Minute Nose Job) is an innovative procedure used to elevate and improve the projection of the tip of the nose, conceal a bump or correct a deviated nasal bridge by injecting soft tissue filler into very specific areas of the nose. Though results are not permanent, they do last long and do not pose nearly as many risks as invasive surgery does. The results are immediate and may last up to two years, depending on the type of filler that is used. Because the results are relatively temporary, adjustments can be made as your face changes over time and you always retain a natural look. The results are immediate, without downtime and at a fraction of a surgical rhinoplasty cost.
Who is a candidate for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
For those with specific nasal deformities that can be corrected with augmentation and cannot afford the expense or downtime associated with surgery, or for those who are simply afraid to actually go under the knife, it can be quite a relief to hear that there is such an option available. Anyone with a mild to moderate nasal hump, irregularity or deviation who does not desire a change in the size of his or her nose may be a candidate for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty.
How safe is the Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty avoids the risks of surgery and has no effect on nasal breathing since it involves only injection under the skin. The procedure is much more precise than surgical rhinoplasty, so more detailed adjustments to nasal contour are possible. During the procedure, you are fully awake. You may hold a mirror and you are in complete control of the procedure's results. The Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty procedure does not cause nosebleeds, black eyes or persistent swelling. The procedure is temporary and there are no long term scarring complications.
How long is the Recovery?
Most patients return to work on the same day as the procedure. The results are immediate. There is no significant swelling or discomfort. Dr. Edwin Ishoo does recommend that sunglasses or heavy eyeglasses be avoided for two weeks after the procedure, as the filler material becomes integrated into the soft tissue of the nose.
