Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty in Houston
A More Attractive Nose Without Surgery
Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, has always been an excellent option for reshaping or resizing the nose. But for those who aren’t ready for surgery or can’t spare the downtime, a new option is now available: the nonsurgical rhinoplasty.
Dr. Siegel combines his extensive expertise in dermal fillers and his years of perfecting his rhinoplasty technique to create a more attractive nose without any surgery. He uses proven dermal fillers Juvederm® and Restylane® to sculpt and shape the nose during one short office visit.
A nonsurgical nose job can correct many of the issues people have with their noses. Though it’s not the same as surgery, Dr. Siegel’s nonsurgical rhinoplasty can:
- Smooth out humps and bumps on the bridge of the nose
- Straighten a crooked appearance
- Make a flat or wide nose look more defined
- Add fullness to a nose that’s too narrow
- Add attractive shape and definition to the tip
- Disguise and smooth a bulbous tip
- Correct issues from a prior rhinoplasty, particularly when another surgery is not recommended
A nonsurgical or noninvasive rhinoplasty is done with no incisions, no anesthesia, and no downtime! This special noninvasive procedure uses only injections to give you a more attractive nose. Results are often visible as soon as the procedure is done, which typically takes 30 minutes or less. Remember, however, that this procedure should only be performed by a skilled facial plastic surgeon who can use careful precision and experience to give you a beautiful and natural-looking result.
How long do the effects of nonsurgical nose jobs last?
The dermal fillers used in a nonsurgical rhinoplasty will last for up to a year or more in most patients. Though it is not permanent like a surgical rhinoplasty, it offers patients a long-term yet temporary option that can be readministered once its effects start to wear off.
What is the difference in results for surgical vs nonsurgical rhinoplasty?
A nonsurgical rhinoplasty can enhance the nose’s appearance, but it cannot make a large nose smaller. It also cannot correct very prominent humps or bumps. The effects from a noninvasive rhinoplasty may be more subtle than those that can be achieved with surgery.
Traditional nose jobs offer permanent results, and can reshape almost any type of nose in the hands of a qualified facial plastic surgeon. A nonsurgical nose job is a great option for those who want a better looking nose without surgery, or want to “try out” a new nose before deciding upon rhinoplasty.
How do nose fillers work?
Juvederm and Restylane contain an ingredient called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body’s healthy tissue. These fillers have been used safely for years to add smoothness and a more youthful look to the face. When used in a non surgical rhinoplasty, these safe, powerful treatments can minimize or eliminate common problems with nose shape or size, smoothing or contouring key areas. Your facial plastic surgeon can discuss exactly where he will inject the fillers to give you the look you want.
How safe are nose injections for me?
Nose fillers are extremely safe and amazingly effective if you use the right provider. It’s important to know that an inexperienced injector will raise the risk of complications or an unattractive result.
If you use a board certified facial plastic surgeon who understands the unique characteristics of nasal tissue, you’ll likely be extremely satisfied with the appearance of your nose and have a very low chance of experiencing any side effects.
Is noninvasive rhinoplasty painful during or after the treatment?
Most patients report little to no discomfort during a nonsurgical nose job. In some cases, minor injection-related reactions such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration, and tenderness can occur. These problems subside quickly and are manageable. Any redness or discoloration can be covered with makeup and most patients do not require any downtime afterward.
