Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
What is the difference between surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty?

 

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Chicago

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.

The hardest type of rhinoplasties for plastic surgeons to perform are cleft rhinoplasties. A major reason is that the anatomy of the nose and midface are asymmetric, therefore, you have an asymmetric nose sitting on top of an asymmetric midface. In this case, I used rib cartilage to rebuild the cartilage of the nose and fat transfer to improve asymmetries of the midface and lips. In the post-operative frontal views, you can see a straighter nose, the tip has been lifted, and the right nostril has been brought down and inwards. On profile view, you can see the dorsal hump was lowered, the tip of the nose has been lifted, rotated, and refined. The fat was placed in the cheeks and upper lip to improve the midface deficiency that is common in cleft lip patients. Posted with permission.

Plastic surgery can be dramatic or understated. This is a before and after with subtle changes to improve the proportions and aesthetics of the nose in a natural way. This patient wanted only small changes of the dorsum and tip. In the post-operative photos, you can visualize the dorsal hump has been removed and the tip has been refined, slightly rotated and projected. Posted with permission.

Couldn’t be happier for this beautiful patient and her natural before and after results. This patient is 3 months out from a deep plane or sub-SMAS facelift, neck lift, and facial fat transfer. Pay close attention to the neck, jawline, and midface or cheeks. In the post-operative views you can see a well-defined neck and jawline. The face appears less bottom heavy, there is restoration of the midface volume, and the overall facial configuration is more heart-shaped and youthful. Posted with permission.

It’s been a minute but this is a great before and after of a facial feminization case and this patient is only 6 weeks out from surgery. Pay close attention to the hairline, the forehead, orbital rims, eyebrows, nose, chin and jawline. Does this patient look like they had major surgery 6 weeks ago? Posted with permission.

Check out this interesting rhinoplasty case where I performed a combined primary rhinoplasty and sliding genioplasty. Fixing the crooked or deviated nose is very challenging for all rhinoplasty surgeons and the goal is to achieve a straighter nose because a perfectly straight nose does not exist. On the frontal view, you can see a nose that is midline and with beautiful dorsal aesthetic lines. On the profile view, you can visual a nice nasal profile with a slight break at the tip. The sliding genioplasty complements the nose and improves the overall proportions and balance of the face. A chin implant would not be able to achieve this amount of chin augmentation or chin length.

It’s never too early to starting thinking about that summer body. This patient underwent a mommy makeover or a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck. Pay close attention to the belly button, this patient had an umbilical hernia, which made the reconstruction of her belly button even harder. Most plastic surgeons take their time trying to make the belly button look as natural as possible since the appearance of the belly button can be an obvious sign that the patient had a tummy tuck.

A facial feminization case that highlights how subtle changes can have a major impact on the balance and proportions of the face. Do the post-operative images appear softer, less angular, more refined, and more heart-shaped rather than square-shaped? Can you tell what surgeries were performed? Hint: look closely at the forehead/orbital rims, nose, chin, jawline, and neck. Posted with permission.
