Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty – Virginia Beach, VA
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also referred to as a non-surgical nose job, is an alternative to traditional rhinoplasty surgery for altering the shape of the nose using injectable fillers. Good candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty include individuals who are looking to improve a small dorsal hump, a bump on the nose, or asymmetry of the nose.
While not a replacement for surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty with filler injection can be a useful tool for those who are not yet ready for or would like to avoid surgery and for those seeking subtle changes in their nasal appearance. In addition, as most injectable fillers are temporary, this can be an ideal way to preview the possibilities of rhinoplasty before committing to surgery.
Dr. Kyle Choe performs non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures in the office setting at his AAAHC-accredited surgical center in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The procedure takes just a few minutes to complete and may be performed with a topical anesthetic or no anesthetic. There are no incisions necessary and, as a result, no resultant scarring. A variety of injectables may be used to alter the shape of the nose including Juvederm®, Restylane® and Radiesse®.
There is no recovery or downtime following non-surgical rhinoplasty with injectable fillers and patients are able to immediately return to work and other normal activities. Minor swelling, bruising or redness may occur in some patients but these side effects are generally short lived and typically fade within a day or two. The duration of results will vary depending on the particular injectable filler that is used. Juvederm® typically lasts for six months or longer, Restylane® for up to one year, and Radiesse® for one to one and a half years.
