If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your nose like many others, but are too reluctant to go under the knife and undergo surgery to achieve the contoured nose that you desire, there is now a revolutionary and non-invasive option available to you with non-surgical rhinoplasty.
What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as liquid rhinoplasty, is a minimally-invasive procedure that can alter the shape of the nose to improve facial harmony.
Fillers can disguise many unwanted contours of the nose without the need for incisions or a lengthy recovery period. With non-surgical rhinoplasty, Dr. Lay can:
- Augment the tip of the nose
- Add volume to improve overall symmetry
- Minimize the appearance of bumps on the bridge of the nose
The Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Procedure
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a quick procedure. Dr. Lay will inject dermal fillers as needed to add volume, lifting or contouring areas of the nose to resolve your cosmetic concerns. The injections involve minimal discomfort, though you can choose to have a topical anesthetic applied to ensure that you are comfortable during the treatment.
Another method known as a Thread Lift can also be incorporated in order to achieve optimal results. The thread lift works by utilizing absorbable sutures, made from biodegradable polymers to lift and tighten the appearance of the skin in the visible treatment area.
You will be able to return to work and your normal activities the same day as your non-surgical rhinoplasty. Some tenderness and redness may occur after the procedure. You can expect to see your new nose contours within two weeks.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty vs. Rhinoplasty
There are advantages and limitations to both types of rhinoplasty. Surgical rhinoplasty requires significant downtime but provides long-lasting results. Nose surgery also allows Dr. Lay to address a wider range of cosmetic issues than non-surgical rhinoplasty can treat.
However, surgery is not the right choice for everyone, and not every patient is comfortable making a permanent change to their nose. For patients who do not want to have a surgical procedure and are willing to have periodic treatments to maintain results, rhinoplasty with injectables can be a great alternative.
Benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty include:
- No lengthy recovery
- Quick results
- Minimally invasive
Who Is A Candidate?
Individuals who have had surgical rhinoplasty in the past and were not satisfied with their results may be a candidate. For those who are unhappy with the appearance of a bump on the bridge of their nose, or those interested in making their nasal tip appear more prominent may be suitable candidates. However, the best way to determine If you qualify as a candidate is through a consultation with a medical professional.
When meeting with you in your consultation, Dr. Lay will learn about your treatment goals and medical history, as well as examine your nasal structure. He will make sure you understand your rhinoplasty options so you can make an informed decision.
