NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY

The size and appearance of your nose are very important to the overall beauty of your face. A large or wide nose often takes away attention from your beautiful eyes and lips. Sometimes, a small change in the appearance of your nose can make very significant improvements in the way your facial features complement each other. There’s so much to gain from a perfectly sculpted nose, but the price and downtime of traditional surgery can make achieving this seem impossible.

If you’ve always dreamed of a nose job, but aren’t ready to spend a few thousand dollars and deal with bruising and downtime – Injectable rhinoplasty is your answer! Dr. Kay’s signature “Tinkerbell Lift Tip” is the perfect way to get a cute, feminine nose without surgery! In addition to altering the tip, Dr. Kay can shape the bridge of the nose to smoothen any bumps or ridges through expertly placed fillers. Adding volume can actually make your nose appear smaller, driving attention to your other important facial features and giving you that confidence you’ve been missing!

NON-SURGICAL RHINO IN PASADENA AND BEVERLY HILLS LOS ANGELES AT BEAUTY BY DR. KAY

Dr. Kay’s many years of surgical experience have aptly prepared her to perform this procedure, as she is an expert on the anatomy of the face. Please be aware that this is an advanced procedure, as the nose contains important blood vessels, so please do not see an inexperienced injector for this. Come see Dr. Kay instead! Her patient satisfaction and beautiful results are reflected in her high reviews and real patient outcomes, illustrating why she is one of the top choices for injectable rhinoplasty in the Los Angeles area.

WHAT IS NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY?

Nonsurgical (Injectable) Rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure in which hyaluronic acid fillers are expertly placed to temporarily reshape the nose. It can be used to hide bumps and deformations, straighten the bridge, raise the tip, or make your nose look more symmetrical. Additionally, injection rhinos are frequently performed to correct imperfections from prior surgical nose jobs. By subtly reshaping the nose and making it look more symmetrical, attention is refocused to your eyes and lips, making the nose appear smaller. The procedure itself takes about 15 minutes and produces instantaneous, fully reversible results with no downtime! In experienced hands, this is a safe procedure that yields beautiful results, enhancing the appearance of the face as a whole and giving the patient newly found confidence.

WHICH FILLERS ARE USED FOR THIS PROCEDURE?

Many different types of hyaluronic acid fillers can be used for non-surgical rhinoplasty. Which specific filler(s) chosen will depend on your unique situation and what you wish to accomplish and will be decided by Dr. Kay during your consultation. Dr. Kay’s favorite filler to use for this procedure is Restylane Lyft, which is great for sculpting and adding volume.

PROCEDURE

Liquid Rhinoplasty is a quick and pretty painless procedure. The actual injection lasts about 15 minutes with no downtime, so you can complete your consultation and injection in the same day! Before beginning the injection, you will have photos taken in order to help you track your results and identify areas of concern. Dr. Kay uses an effective numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Multiple micro-droplet injections are strategically placed, then massaged and molded to achieve the desired shape.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?

Generally, if you are a healthy adult seeking non-surgical remodeling of the nose, you are a fit candidate. However, if you have any hyaluronic acid allergies or have experienced any reactions to fillers in the past, you should avoid non-surgical rhinoplasty. Injections cannot be performed if any infections are present at the injection site. Prior to injecting, you must inform us of any medications, vitamins, and/or supplements you are taking.

IS INJECTABLE RHINOPLASTY SAFE?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe, minimally-invasive procedure with minimal risk of complications when administered by an experienced and qualified injector. However, due to the complex anatomy and extensive vasculature of this area, complications are possible and finding an experienced injector is key. However, the risk and significance of these complications is much less than that of surgical rhinoplasty. Results are fully reversible with the administration of hyaluronidase in the event of a mishap or unsatisfactory result. Dr. Kay’s many years of surgery experience have aptly prepared her to perform this procedure, as she is an expert on the anatomy of the face.

DOWNTIME, RESULTS, AND FOLLOW-UPS

The best part about the liquid rhino is that you can return to your normal activities and work as soon as you walk out of the office because there is no downtime. Results vary in every individual, but you should see final results after 2 weeks once the swelling has completely resolved. The duration of these results differs from patient to patient, but can last up to 16 months. We recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment 4-6 weeks out in order to evaluate the results and give additional injections to enhance the effects if necessary.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY?

  • Before coming in to receive your treatment, you should follow these pre-procedure instructions to minimize the risks of adverse reactions:
  • Avoid alcohol, as it may increase your risk of bruising
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood-thinning medications 2 weeks in advance if possible, as these can increase your risk of swelling and bruising (Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, and other NSAIDs).
  • Avoid coming in with makeup or be prepared to remove it.
  • Try to schedule appointment two weeks before special events, as swelling can take up to two weeks to resolve.
  • Stay hydrated and eat well before your appointment.

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER RECEIVING INJECTABLE RHINOPLASTY?

Although there is no downtime, and you can return to your normal activities, it is important to follow these post-treatment instructions in order to maximize the results and avoid complications:

  • Ice area for the first day for 30 min. Ice is helpful every 2 hours for 30 min at a time. 2 – 3 times a day is plenty.
  • Light aerobic exercises only for the first two days post-treatment.
  • Avoid saunas — minimal sweating recommended.
  • Gently massage any visual lumps or nodules daily for a week.
  • Avoid salty foods and alcohol during first two weeks post-treatment.
