Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also called injection rhinoplasty, is a method to reshape the nose through the use of dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Juvéderm and others. The benefits of this nose-reshaping technique are that it’s less expensive and has a faster recovery than does traditional, surgical rhinoplasty. While it doesn’t work for everyone, for those with specific nose configurations, it is a viable option.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Addresses These Concerns

  1. A nasal bump that can be “hidden” by filling out the area around the bump
  2. Grooves, dents or other depressions in the nose
  3. A droopy nasal tip
  4. A flat nasal bridge
  5. A “saddle” nose in which the center of the nose appears “scooped”

 

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Cannot Address These Issues
If you wish to have a thinner bridge, reduction in a large bump, a smaller or more narrow nose, a surgical rhinoplasty is the correct procedure for you. As well, non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot remedy a deviated septum or improve breathing problems cause by internal nasal defects. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Galante at his Indiana plastic surgery office can help you understand your options.

How Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping is Performed
After an application of an anesthetic cream, the surface of the nose is cleansed, and then injected with dermal fillers, chosen specifically to treat the patient’s specific concerns. Although some improvement can be seen immediately, the end result may require a series of injections, with approximately 4-6 weeks between each session, as natural tissue will increase around the filler, resulting in more volume. After some time has elapsed after each session, Dr. Galante will decide whether more filler is needed and, if so, where and how much.

If you have concerns about your nose, schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Gus Galante through this online consultation form or call our Valparaiso or Schererville office at 800-721-3244.
