Non-Surgical Nose Job

coverDr. David Rodwell has been featured on MSN.com and in Women’s Health Magazine as an invited expert to discuss the trend of non-surgical rhinoplasty and some of its pros and cons.  He has been invited to speak at several conferences to teach other physicians his innovative technique including a recent lecture to an international audience at the 2017 annual meeting of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and in 2018 at the Foundation for Facial Aesthetic Surgery 25th annual conference.

The nose is the center point of your face. For the most part, it goes unnoticed, unless there is some flaw or abnormality like humps, crookedness, or a nose too large. Whether genetics or trauma causes these aesthetic issues, many people feel the only solution is through nose surgery. Although rhinoplasty is an excellent option and one of the more popular facial surgeries in Charleston, many patients are looking for a procedure that is less invasive and offers a shorter downtime.

If you are dissatisfied with the size or shape of your nose, your concern is aesthetic only, and want a quick fix to improve your nose appearance, board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. David Rodwell, offers non-surgical rhinoplasty. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed by applying dermal filler injections to recontour and improve nose appearance.

This minimally invasive nose procedure is not performed by many physicians, and it allows some patients to avoid surgery altogether. The procedure typically requires one to two treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. Treatments are quick, convenient and cost-effective.

If surgical rhinoplasty is necessary, Dr. Rodwell often supplements this surgery with filler injections to enhance results.

Why Consider a Non-Surgical Nose Job?

A Non-Surgical Nose Job can:

  • Correct minor irregularities after a rhinoplasty
  • Fill grooves and shallow areas on the nose
  • Smooth a hump or bump on the bridge of the nose
  • Build up the tip of the nose
  • Improve the contour of the nose

What Are the Benefits of a Liquid Rhinoplasty?

The advantage of non-surgical rhinoplasty over the traditional nose job is it requires no surgery or downtime. A rhinoplasty involves swelling which can take several months to a year to fully subside and involves a more invasive approach at a higher cost.

Patients not ready to commit to surgery, but who want to improve facial balance can benefit from a non-surgical nose job. The procedure can smooth out a hump on the bridge, fix a crooked nose, and improve a drooping tip. A non-surgical nose job has much of the same psychological benefits of surgery, with many patients experiencing a boost in self-confidence following the treatment.

Dr. Rodwell’s Approach to Non-Surgical Nose Jobs

When considering this procedure, you should choose a doctor who has a thorough understanding of nose structure and fully understands what could be accomplished.

Dr. Rodwell approaches his non-surgical treatments with the same level of professionalism and care he brings to surgery. Non-surgical rhinoplasty requires optimal experience and familiarity with facial anatomy.

The Procedure

First, he applies a topical cream for comfort. After the anesthetic has taken effect, he injects a chosen filler with a fine needle into the target areas. The filler will fill indentations or make the bridge look straight by adding volume around a bump, hump or crooked area. It can also add projection to the nose tip.

During the procedure, you can let Dr. Rodwell know if you wish to have more filler injected in certain areas.

After Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Patients can return to normal activities immediately following this minimally-invasive treatment. While non-surgical rhinoplasty results are not permanent, many of Dr. Rodwell’s patients like this option because it offers stunning results immediately with no downtime.

No recovery is necessary after your non-surgical rhinoplasty injections. Some mild swelling is to be expected for a few days, and some bruising can also occur. You can continue with normal activities throughout your treatment period. The only limitation is to avoid heavy exercise for 24 hours.

The procedure includes the first injection then a planned touch up injection around 2 weeks later.

Frequently Asked Questions about Non-Surgical Nose Jobs

How long do the results last?

The duration of the results depends on the filler used. Calcium hydroxyapatite fillers like Radiesse usually last about eighteen months, while hyaluronic fillers like Restylane have an eight-month shelf-life. Eventually, dermal fillers absorb naturally, and a follow-up procedure is necessary.

Are there risks involved with this procedure?

Although the procedure is safe, there may be some bruising, tenderness, redness or swelling after treatment.

What issues can’t be addressed with non-surgical rhinoplasty?

Because structural correction requires surgery, a non-surgical nose job cannot address significant humps, crookedness, or functional concerns. These issues will require surgical rhinoplasty.

Is it painful?

Although injections can be painful, the process is short and over quickly. A topical anesthetic will be administered before treatment to avoid any discomfort.

Can I get a surgical nose job after a non-surgical rhinoplasty?

Yes, once the fillers are absorbed fully, you can move forward with a surgical rhinoplasty. The non-surgical nose job is a great way to see if your new look is what you want before choosing surgery.

Who should perform my non-surgical nose job?

Even though a non-surgical rhinoplasty is minimally-invasive, you should seek a board-certified facial plastic surgeon to perform the procedure. A highly trained plastic surgeon will be able to provide optimal results while keeping risks to a minimum.

Are allergic reactions possible with dermal fillers?

Yes, although rare. However, a skin test can reveal any allergy you may have toward any injectable considered.
