A non-surgical rhinoplasty, is a non-invasive procedure to improve the appearance of the nose with filler. The filler is used to improve the aesthetic contour and dimensions of the nose by adding to areas of the nose that are deficient. It can be added to the nasal dorsum to improve the profile of the nose and to the tip to increase tip projection. Filler can also be used to fill the base of the nose to increase projection of the nose. It is important to know that a non-surgical rhinoplasty is not permanent but the results can last for up to a year. As with a surgical rhinoplasty procedure, every nose is unique, which is why each patient at our practice receives personalized care, an individualized course of treatment, and the safest and most innovative techniques.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty can also be useful to treat:

  • A nasal profile with a depression or hump on the bridge of the nose
  • An asymmetrical nose
  • Poor tip projection
  • Poor tip aesthetics

Am I a Candidate for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

If you have minor asymmetries of the nose, a dorsal hump, or a low nasal tip, you may be a candidate for a non-surgical rhinoplasty. If you are not sure about having a surgical rhinoplasty and would like to see what minor adjustments will look like, a non-surgical rhinoplasty may be a good starting point for you. It is important to know that a non-surgical rhinoplasty will not improve breathing issues related to your nose. There are specific indications for a non-surgical rhinoplasty and your board certified plastic surgeon will be able to determine if the procedure is right for you.

Patients who smoke or are otherwise not in good physical health are typically not ideal candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty.

What to Expect from a Consultation

Any medical center or practice you choose should be willing to sit down with you and take the time to explain all aspects of the procedure beforehand, including associated risks and recovery. At the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, we thoroughly review your medical history, speak with you about your expectations, and provide you with an extensive overview of the aesthetic details of a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure.

How a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is Performed

First, a local anesthetic is placed on the nose and surrounding area. Next, the filler is strategically placed in the nose to address the specific aesthetic goals of the patient. This can be placed along the nasal dorsum to improve the contour of a dorsal hump. The filler can also be placed at the tip to increase tip projection and improve the aesthetics of the nasal tip. The procedure is quick and can be performed in 10-15 minutes. The results can last up to 1 year.

Recovery after a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Recovery after a non-surgical rhinoplasty is similar to the recovery after the placement of any dermal filler. The dermal filler results are almost immediate, as are the visible results. Ice packs are used after the treatment to reduce swelling. The injection sites will likely feel tender for a couple of days after the injections, but are not typically painful enough to require medication.

With some dermal fillers, you may experience an “overfull” appearance in the treated areas, or hypersensitivity that may seem like an allergic reaction. These conditions usually resolve within a few hours. If symptoms persist, be sure to speak with your plastic surgeon.

Potential Risks of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Patients should be aware that non-surgical rhinoplasty, as with any medical procedure, come with potential risks. Each individual should consider both the benefits and known risks before making the decision to have a non-surgical rhinoplasty. Such risks may include:

  • Swelling and bruising at the injection site
  • Asymmetry
  • Lumps beneath the skin
  • Changes in skin sensation

Always make sure that the plastic surgeon performing the procedure is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery because experience and credentials matter.

What Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Cost?

The cost of this type of procedure is going to fluctuate based on location, surgeon, center, and the individual patient’s needs. Dermal filler injections can range from $500 to $1000 per syringe depending on the product used and the site to be injected. Be sure to discuss costs with your plastic surgeon during your consultation. The Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago always provides a detailed breakdown of costs during your initial consultation.

A 1 year follow-up on a patient who wanted a rhinoplasty to remove the dorsal hump and improve the aesthetics of her tip. In this case the dorsal hump was removed, the nose made straighter, the tip refined, and the tip rotated and projected more. Her new nose fits her face without overtly changing the ethnic features of her face. Posted with permission.

Male patient in his late 60’s who was able to turn back the clock after undergoing a #facelift, #neck lift, #blepharoplasty, and #fattransfer. Pay close attention to the “bags” underneath the eyes, the jawline, and neck. The scars have healed nicely and are inconspicuous even with short hair. In the post-operative photos, the patient has maintained his natural facial features and anatomy, but just looks like a more youthful version of himself. Posted with permission.

#Primaryrhinoplasty to fix the dorsal hump, droopy tip, and crooked nose. In the post-operative photos, the patient has a nice dorsal profile on side view, the tip has been lifted, and the nose is straight. To evaluate how straight the nose is, look at the dorsal aesthetic lines on bird’s eye view and follow the two light reflexes along the dorsum. Posted with permission.

Relatively small surgeries can yield big changes. This patient wanted to improve the contour of her chin and the overall profile of her face. The patient’s lower 1/3 of the face and chin were short and set back. Additionally, the patient had asymmetries of the chin and jawline that she wanted improved. The patient underwent a #slidinggenioplasty to achieve these goals where the chin was cut and mobilized forward and downward. In the post-operative photos, you can see a more aesthetic and balanced facial profile. The advantages of a #genioplasty over a #chinimplant are that the chin can be moved in numerous planes, the advancement can be more significant, and asymmetries can be addressed.

This patient had a bilateral constricted ear deformity where the top portion of the ear folds over the rest of the ear. In this deformity, the ear appears shorter in height and there are abnormalities of the outer and inner folds of the ear. In the postoperative photos you can visualize the ear is longer in height, the helical rim or outer portion of the ear is lifted up and the antihelical fold or inner portion of the ear is more defined.

Plastic surgeons pioneered microsurgery and free flaps nearly 50 years ago. The surgery involves harvesting tissue with its arteries and veins and transplanting it to another part of the body. The arteries and veins are re-attached at the new site using a microscope and sutures smaller than human hair. In this case, this patient was in a bad car accident where he had an open wound of the leg with exposed and fractured bone. Before microsurgery was invented, many of these patients would have their limb amputated. To salvage his leg, I took a muscle from his thigh and transplanted it to the lower leg to cover the exposed bone after Ortho fixed the broken bone. As you can see in the video, he is on his way to a full recovery and can walk now. After more physical therapy, he will be able to walk without a walker. Posted with permission.

A former collegiate wrestler who developed moderate cauliflower ear of the left that resulted in a thick and more protruding ear. A cauliflower ear forms after blunt trauma to the ear where a blood clot develops. If left untreated, the ear cartilage becomes thick and hard, which makes these cases difficult to treat. After surgery, the patient now reports feeling more confident when he looks in the mirror and when he is communicating with people in social settings. Posted with permission.

Maintaining masculinity and core features without major alterations were the plan for this patient who underwent a #revisionrhinoplasty. The patient reports that when people see him now after surgery, the comments he receives are along the lines of “you look well rested or more handsome” and not “did you have a rhinoplasty or you look completely different”. Exactly what we like to hear. Posted with permission.
