Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty refers to nasal augmentation with the use of dermal fillers. Using fillers in the nose is not the same as elsewhere on the face because there are unique anatomic and functional considerations when dealing with the nose. It can be performed as an in office procedure similar to other dermal fillers, and patients are typically happy with the fast results and minimal downtime. Results may last for well over one year, or even longer, as the filler lasts longer in the nose compared to other parts of the face.
Too much bulk in a part of the nose that does not have adequate support can lead to nasal airway problems, and using fillers in certain areas can lead to problems because the blood supply can be compromised. As the risks are higher than with fillers used elsewhere in the face, it is important that the practitioner is experienced with non-surgical rhinoplasty, and preferable that they are experienced with surgical rhinoplasty.
In the examples below, we have patients that wanted subtle modification of their nasal profiles. The first patient had a prominent hump on the profile view, and her nasal profile was straightened out with a non-surgical rhinoplasty. The second patient wanted more projection to her nose and nasal bridge, which was achieved using Restylane. The third patient also had a subtle hump seen in pictures that she wanted to address, and had great results with a subtle augmentation above the hump.

Get in Touch
The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog is here to give you the most honest, up to date information from us to you, in our “sponsored by nobody” style. Our discussions will include topics that interest our readers, with a focus on facial plastic surgery. We will use this space to answer frequently asked questions and also discuss current trends, new products, and emergent technologies. Information is widely available on the internet, but good information that is not marketing material in disguise is hard to find, and often times constitutes a majority of what patients read as their “research”. The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog differs, as we are an independent practice that has no exclusive deals with any vendors, companies, or other entities that would influence the quality and honesty of the information we provide you.
Our First Series
One of the most common discussions that we have with patients are about the differences between products that we offer, as there is some overlap. The single most common question we get asked is, “what is the difference between Botox and Dysport?”. Our first three-part series will explore the differences between the three neuromodulators currently available in the USA, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Several topics, such as differences in the strength, longevity, or “spread” between the products will be discussed. Despite being broken into a three-part series, there is quite a lot of information, as the information from these posts are rooted in science, and the claims are supported by multiple articles published in high quality, peer-reviewed medical literature.
