Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Using Fillers
Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery ranks among the top five popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the US today. Even a slight improvement in the size or shape of the nose can have a magnified impact on the overall facial appearance of an individual. However, some of the patients may be reluctant to choose surgery for aesthetic enhancement.
In such cases, the surgeon may recommend non-surgical rhinoplasty with FDA approved dermal fillers. These fillers are injectable treatments to enhance facial aesthetics, and are widely popular today. Dr. Eric Yavrouian is a leading facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon providing both surgical and non-surgical treatment options in rhinoplasty. Dr. Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.
A filler based rhinoplasty procedure will avoid all the risks and complications that are typically associated with a cosmetic surgery procedure. The procedure will be performed on an outpatient basis, and will involve minimal pain and discomfort.
Downtime in case of rhinoplasty with dermal fillers is very little, which makes it ideal for working people and busy moms. Results with a single treatment can last for as much as one year, and the treatment can be repeated in the future for extended benefits.
Women and men who are seeking improvements to the nose appearance, but do not wish to undergo rhinoplasty surgery may be the right candidates for a non-surgical rhinoplasty using facial fillers. The surgeon will usually recommend this treatment to patients with relatively less prominent nose anomalies.
Patients interested in removing a bump or hump on the nose bridge, enhance the nasal tip or augment the overall nose appearance may make good candidates for filler rhinoplasty. Eminent facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Yavrouian provides this procedure to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas.
The surgeon will prepare an appropriate injection plan to address the specific aesthetic goals of the patient with regard to the nose. The patient will receive a local anesthetic injection or a topical numbing gel will be applied prior to the procedure to ensure that they remain fully comfortable during the treatment process.
Injections in precise quantities of dermal fillers will be administered in the targeted areas. The entire injectable procedure may last only for about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the extent of treatment needed. The choice of dermal fillers will be made in advance in consultation with the patient.
Hyaluronic acid based biocompatible dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm may be used for filler rhinoplasty. In a few cases, more advanced fillers such as Radiesse or Sculptra Aesthetic may be recommended. Two or more fillers may be used in combination in some cases to achieve more comprehensive results.
Recovery and Results
Mild redness and swelling will occur in the treated area, which will fade on its own in about one week. Some patients can experience tenderness in the nose for about three to five days. Results may be sustainable for about 6 to 12 months, depending on the choice of fillers.
