Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Using FillersNon-Surgical Rhinoplasty Using Fillers

Rhinoplasty is one of the top five most sought-after plastic surgery procedures in the US today. The procedure is designed to enhance the shape and size of the nose in harmony with other facial features. While rhinoplasty is highly popular, some patients may not like to go for a surgery even if they wish to improve the appearance of their nose.

Such patients have a safe and proven treatment option in the form of facial fillers. These injectable dermal fillers can be used effectively to achieve nose reshaping results in a completely non-surgical manner. Millions of women and men in the US receive the benefits of FDA approved dermal fillers every year.

Board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Trang Vo-Nguyen (Dr. V) provides non-surgical rhinoplasty to patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and surrounding communities.



When a patient choose non-surgical rhinoplasty, they can be reassured that they will avoid all the potential risks and complications that they would have otherwise faced in case of a surgical nose job. The dermal filler based rhinoplasty will be performed as an outpatient procedure. It will not involve general anesthesia or sedation. Most patients will experience only minimal pain or discomfort.

The duration of the procedure will be much shorter than a rhinoplasty surgery, and post-op recovery period will also be minimal. Busy mothers and working people can ideally choose filler based rhinoplasty, where a single injectable treatment is enough to maintain results for as much as one year. Treatments can be repeated later for prolonged benefits.


Suitable Candidates

Adults who wish to improve their nose appearance but are reluctant to choose a surgery may make good candidates for dermal filler based rhinoplasty. The surgeon will typically recommend this treatment to patients who require relatively less prominent changes and are not candidates for nasal reconstruction.  

Candidates who want to remove a hump or bump on the bridge of the nose, refine the nasal tip, or augment the overall nose appearance can benefit from filler rhinoplasty. Leading facial plastic surgeon Dr. V receives patients from Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby areas for dermal filler nose reshaping.


Filler Procedure

A customized injection plan using appropriate dermal fillers will be created to meet the specific aesthetic goals of the patient. The treatment provider will administer a local anesthetic injection or use a topical numbing cream to ensure a painless procedure. Injections in pre-determined volumes will be administered into the targeted areas of the nose.

The entire injectable procedure will usually get completed in less than 30 minutes, depending on the extent of treatment. Hyaluronic acid based facial fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane are more popular for filler rhinoplasty. Advanced volumizing fillers such as Sculptra Aesthetic or Radiesse may be used in a few cases.



The treated area will show some amount of redness and swelling in the first few days. Tenderness in the nose may be experienced in the first week. Results will last for about six to 12 months, depending on the fillers used.
