Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a convenient alternative to a surgical nose job. Dr. Khan performs this procedure in the office using injectable soft dermal fillers to reshape the exterior of the nose and to smooth bumps and other cosmetic concerns, including the angle of the tip. Liquid rhinoplasty provides is not permanent but provides long-term significant improvements to the profile and look of the nose without adjusting the cartilage or bone.
Dr. Khan can adjust the position and shape of the nasal tip, straighten the nose, and camouflage bumps using injectable fillers. She recommends traditional rhinoplasty for men and women who desire permanent results or need to repair a congenital disability, address breathing problems, improve their nose after a traumatic injury, or address cosmetic issues that require surgery. Many traditional surgical rhinoplasty patients are satisfied with the outstanding results they experience with a liquid rhinoplasty lone.
How Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Work?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an in-office cosmetic procedure that adds temporary volume to specific areas of the nose in order to improve nasal cosmetic concerns like bumps, divots, drooping nasal tips, and more. Dr. Khan performs customized liquid rhinoplasty procedures with FDA-approved injectables like Restylane and Juvéderm, which she then uses to mold, reposition, and reshape the nose without incisions or stitches.
Liquid rhinoplasty fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm contain hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible gel that does not require allergy testing because it is naturally found in the human body. After a liquid rhinoplasty, the body gradually reabsorbs the hyaluronic acid over the next 9 to 12 months. Dr. Khan may also perform Botox injections to relax the muscles in the brows or around the nose to enhance the appearance.
Dr. Khan recommends maintenance injections after the initial treatment. Her follow-up non-surgical rhinoplasty treatments typically produce longer-lasting results ranging between 12-18 months, and less product is needed to maintain results after repeat treatments. Dr. Khan’s liquid rhinoplasty patients experience natural-looking, safe, and long-lasting results without surgery.
