Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Using Fillers Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Using Fillers

Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery is a popular aesthetic procedure designed to harmonize the appearance of the nose with other facial features. But a few patients may not be ready for an elective surgery to enhance facial aesthetics, while still wanting to improve their nose appearance. In such cases, the surgeon may recommend a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure using FDA approved, injectable dermal fillers.

Unlike surgery, the dermal filler treatment will involve minimal pain, almost no downtime, and will avoid all the risks and complications that are typically associated with a surgery procedure. Board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Trang Vo-Nguyen (Dr. V) provides facial filler based rhinoplasty to patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and surrounding communities.

Suitable Candidates

Any individual who is desirous of achieving an improved shape or size of the nose and reducing its aberrations without surgery may be a suitable candidate for non-surgical filler based rhinoplasty. As long as the improvements required are subtle and less complex in nature, filler treatment can serve the purpose in most cases.

Undesirable humps and bumps on the nasal bridge, poorly defined nasal tip, and relatively undermined appearance of the nose are some of the conditions that can be corrected with non-surgical nose reshaping. Working people and busy moms usually make good candidates because they may be more interested in receiving a procedure that involves little risk and minimal downtime.

Injectable Procedure

The surgeon will prepare a detailed and customized dermal filler treatment plan, keeping in view the patient’s condition of the nose, and their personal aesthetic needs. The complete injection procedure can be performed in about half an hour or less. A local anesthetic injection or topical numbness cream will be applied prior to the treatment.

The choice of dermal fillers will be made at the time of treatment planning in consultation with the patient. Some of the popular FDA approved fillers include Juvederm and Restylane for nose augmentation. These are hyaluronic acid based fillers, which require no prior allergy testing. The filler will be injected into the targeted areas of the nose in a pre-determined volume to improve nose profile, symmetry, shape, and projection.

Advanced soft tissue fillers such as Radiesse or Sculptra may also be used in some cases to achieve more dramatic or longer lasting results. Two or more fillers in combination may also be used in some cases for more comprehensive outcomes. The procedure will be performed on an outpatient basis.

Dr. V receives patients from Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby locations for this procedure.

Recovery and Results

Minor swelling and redness may occur after the procedure, which will resolve on its own in a few days. For the first week, slight tenderness will remain in the treated areas. Results with filler based rhinoplasty can usually last for about six months to a year. The treatment may be repeated after about 12 to 18 months to prolong the effects.
