Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES NONINVASIVE NOSE RESHAPING WITH FILLERS WORK?
The Non-Surgical Nose Augmentation* (also known as the 15 minute nose job) is performed by injecting a FDA approved dermal filler in certain parts of the nose bridge and or nose tip to achieve a number of cosmetic outcomes. Within a few minutes, immediate correction will be achieved with minimum to no pain and minimal recovery and downtime.
The Non-Surgical nose job is ideal for those who wish to have a more attractive nose without having to go through the possible complications, downtime, and high costs associated with Rhinoplasty (surgical nose correction). It is ideal for individuals with a wide variety of aesthetic nose complaints. This includes: crooked nose, depressions, small bridge, sharp angles, unattractive tip, bumps, etc. By correcting these imperfections with the FDA approved dermal fillers, your nose will become smaller, more symmetric, and attractive. Juvederm™ and Radiesse™ are the fillers of choice in this case.
WHAT NOSE IMPERFECTION CAN NON-SURGICAL NOSE RESHAPING CORRECT?
This procedure can lift and straighten the tip of your nose, camouflage a bump, unwanted dent or a deviated nasal bridge. It can easily increase the height of the nasal bridge while retaining ethnic identity which is a common request by Asian clients.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
Lidocaine cream applied for about 30 minutes before the procedure yields minimum to no pain.
IS THERE ANY SOCIAL DOWNTIME?
Usually the client can return to work the same day since there will be no to minimal swelling or bruising.
WHICH FILLER IS BETTER FOR ME, RADIESSE OR JUVEDERM?
Both products are FDA-approved for implantation in the human face and have been safely used for years. Radiesse lasts about 12-18 months. Juvederm lasts about 1 year. Juvederm may be a better choice for first time clients who wish to ensure that they like their new look. It is possible to reverse the results of Juvederm within one day by injecting a special enzyme –Hyluronidase, which will dissolve Juvederm.
WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER NON-SURGICAL NOSE JOB?
It is minimally invasive; therefore there is no much downtime and risks of surgery. 2) It is much more affordable since traditional nose Rhinoplasty costs about $5000-8000. 3) Non-surgical nose job is reversible. 4) The client has a control over results of the procedure by looking in a hand held mirror and advising the physician of his/her opinion of the progress of work. 5) Results are subtle, therefore you will look better but not like a person who had a nose job. 6) It is a great choice for teenagers since cosmetic needs may change as client’s face grow.
