Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty, also called nonsurgical nose jobs and liquid rhinoplasty, can be an option for those who can’t spare the recovery time that comes with nose surgery or for those who are simply not ready for it.

As one of the top rhinoplasty surgeons in Houston, Dr. Funk typically prefers the surgical approach to rhinoplasty or nose job surgery, which will have more permanent results. However, the non-surgical rhinoplasty approach is to use dermal fillers to create an attractive nose that you can be happy with. Making use of Juvederm, Restylane, or Radiesse he can form and shape your nose in a single visit to the office. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in the body’s tissue and has been used for years to add smoothness and make other corrections to the nose and face.

What is the Recovery Time for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty or Nose Fillers?

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is performed with no incisions and no anesthesia, generally taking 30 minutes or less to complete. There is no downtime after the procedure and results can often be seen as soon as the procedure is over, although it is important to note that this is not something you should do at home. An experienced plastic surgeon with a precise and careful hand should always perform nonsurgical rhinoplasty for the results of your nose to be beautiful and natural-looking.

What Can Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty & Nose Fillers Do?

There are certain things injectable rhinoplasty or non-surgical rhinoplasty can do for one’s nose and but the options can be limited.

  • Smooth humps on the bridge of the nose
  • Improve and create a straighter nose
  • Create a fullness in more narrow noses
  • Create a fullness in more narrow noses
  • Filling indentations which may result from nasal trauma
  • Correct issues from prior rhinoplasty when another surgery is not recommended

Nose fillers will not address any functional issues you may have.

How Long Does a Non-Surgical Nose Job Last?

In most patients, the effects of the dermal fillers used in the procedure last for 6-12months. It does, however, wear off because it is not permanent like surgical rhinoplasty, but it does provide a temporary alternative for those who are not good candidates for surgery.

Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is used generally to enhance the nose’s appearance at its current size. It cannot reduce the size of a nose. Prominent bumps are also something outside of nonsurgical rhinoplasty’s realm, which only encompasses smaller or more subtle bumps.

It must be noted that traditional nose jobs provide more permanent results and can offer more solutions to reshaping and correcting different nose problems. Dr. Funk’s professional recommendation leans toward traditional rhinoplasty unless someone is not a good candidate for surgery for medical reasons or if touch-ups are needed on a previous surgery.

Is Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty Safe?

Nose fillers are completely safe and effective with the condition that the procedure is performed by an experienced professional. Inexperienced plastic surgeons and injectors will greatly increase the risk of complications. Dr. Funk is double board certified facial plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist. He performs over 200 rhinoplasty procedures in Houston each year and has an intricate understanding of the anatomy of the nose for both aesthetics and function.

Is Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty Painful?

Another benefit to a nonsurgical nose job with nose fillers is that the majority of patients report little to no pain during the procedure. Minor swelling, redness, pain, itching, tenderness and discoloration can occur but will subside quickly. Most patients do not require any downtime whatsoever after the procedure.
