Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a 15-minute nose job, is an in-office procedure in which nasal shape can be improved with simple injections rather than extensive surgery. 15-minute rhinoplasty is performed in the office with minimal discomfort and simple topical numbing cream. Various FDA approved injectable materials are used to contour the nasal profile and tip. Through precise dermal filler injections, nasal bumps and irregularities are easily camouflaged. Some dermal fillers are made from calcium hydroxylapatite crystals, which are similar to the material found in teeth and bone. Calcium hydroxyl is an ideal substance to place in the nose along the nasal bridge because of its similarity to naturally occurring materials found in your body. Non-surgical nose job results typically last 8-12 months, but a 15-minute nose job only takes a few minutes with minimal downtime and only mild discomfort. Sometimes, bruising and swelling can occur, but both typically resolve within a few days.
For patients who are considering rhinoplasty, a non-surgical nose job is a great way to see what results are possible before actually undergoing rhinoplasty. For patients not interested in traditional rhinoplasty surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty is a perfect way to avoid going under the scalpel and still getting beautiful results. 15-minute rhinoplasty is also ideal for patients who have undergone a previous rhinoplasty surgery and are unhappy with the results. By simply injecting the defects and contouring irregularities, vast improvements can be obtained without undergoing extensive revision surgery.
Is non-surgical rhinoplasty right for me?
A non-surgical nose job may be right for you if you would like the results of rhinoplasty without the downtime of traditional surgery. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can also be used to see what rhinoplasty results are possible for you to achieve prior to undergoing rhinoplasty surgery. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can help even out nasal bumps and irregularities and provide a nose that is more balanced with your facial features in just 15 minutes.
Non-surgical nose job surgery:
A non-surgical nose job is performed using FDA approved dermal fillers. The use of these fillers can help contour and fill out any irregularities in the shape or profile of your nose non-surgically. Dr. Zimbler can make your nose look smaller and more balanced with your facial features following non-surgical rhinoplasty. A non-surgical nose job provides immediate, beautiful results. While there is still a period of healing where your nose will be sensitive, there is little to no downtime where you cannot continue normal activities. The most common request that Dr. Zimbler receives is to fill out any bumps or lumps along the nasal bridge. This is easily accomplished with a 15-minute nose job. By injecting dermal fillers above a bump, 15-minute rhinoplasty can help make your nose look smaller and more harmonious with your face.
A non-surgical nose job is often requested by patients who are not happy with their rhinoplasty results from a previous procedure. When rhinoplasties are performed by less skilled physicians, complications can occur that affect a patient’s results. With a non-surgical nose job, Dr. Zimbler can help reduce any irregularities that you may have gained from a previous rhinoplasty with another physician. A 15-minute rhinoplasty is popular with patients who have undergone a rhinoplasty because it can provide beautiful results without having to undergo a second rhinoplasty surgery. If you have subtle or small imperfections that you would like to fix, non-surgical rhinoplasty can help give your nose a more beautiful appearance without having to undergo rhinoplasty surgery. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can help fill hollowed areas, reduce the appearance and severity of bumps or notches, and create a more harmonious nasal profile and shape.
Non-surgical nose job recovery time:
In most cases, there is little to no downtime associated with a non-surgical nose job. Most patients can return to work immediately after their 15-minute rhinoplasty. It is normal to experience some slight discomfort, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites after your non-surgical nose job. These symptoms typically resolve in 2 weeks after your non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure. 15-minute nose jobs results will vary depending on the type of injectable filler used, but the results from a non-surgical nose job using Radiesse® will typically last 10-12 months.
Although there is little downtime associated with a non-surgical nose job, we suggest that you rest as much as you can the remainder of the day following your procedure. You can resume normal activity immediately, but it is important not to upset or disturb the nose for 1-2 weeks after your non-surgical nose job. Do not wear sunglasses or eyeglasses for the first week following your procedure.
