Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping
Reshape your Nose Without Rhinoplasty! Explore your Options at Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center
Is your nose slightly asymmetrical, too thin or not as straight as you want? Do you have a bump, dent, or imperfect nasal tip? Just a short time ago, your only option for correcting concerns such as these was to undergo rhinoplasty surgery. While your nose would clearly be in good hands with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, you may feel apprehensive about the prospect of surgery. We can understand why! More than that, Dr. Reichel and her team are thrilled to have the artistic ability and training to enable us to help improve your nose. At Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, you can discover a straight path to a beautiful nose without a scalpel in sight.
Let's Explore Non-surgical Nose Jobs
Recent developments in aesthetic medicine have brought about a windfall of opportunity to look and feel your best. While there is widespread awareness of Botox and filler solutions for wrinkle-reduction, the idea of facial contouring, sometimes called a liquid face lift, is still relatively new. However, patients are quickly learning that non-surgical enhancements to the nose carry several advantages:
- Healing time is much shorter than surgical rhinoplasty
- Downtime is minimal with only temporary redness and swelling
- Results are instantaneous
- Dr. Reichel uses only topical numbing cream, there is no need for anesthesia
- No incisions mean no scarring
- No nosebleeds
- The cost of treatment is a fraction of surgical rhinoplasty
How is a Non-surgical Nose Job Done?
To reshape the nose without incisions, shaving, or other techniques, Dr. Reichel relies on the characteristics of various injectables, such as BOTOX®, Radiesse, and other fillers. Soft tissue fillers are formulated with adequate consistency that makes it possible to "avoid" certain areas of tissue similar to the techniques for making sculptra. This can minimize the appearance of other areas, such as a hump on the bridge.
Adding to the nose may seem counterintuitive, especially if the goal is to create a smaller, more streamlined feature. With precision technique, Dr. Reichel’s team achieve this objective in a single visit. And, because the effects of soft tissue fillers are immediately visible, the process is precise and fluid, like creating a work of art right in front of your eyes.
Are you a good Candidate for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
We are happy to consult with you in our Seattle or Renton office to discuss your needs and concerns. Those who make good candidates for this outpatient treatment are individuals who are interested in disguising minor flaws such as a poorly defined tip of the nose, a broad nose or a “hump” in the middle of the nose.
What to Expect
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is only minimally invasive. If you have ever had BOTOX®, you know how painless injections can be. You are fully alert during your procedure. The advantage of this is that you get to see your nose as it progresses toward your desired appearance! You can offer feedback, let us know how you are feeling, or just sit back and relax. After the work is complete, you may have minimal redness and swelling, but these side effects will dissipate quickly.
Dermal fillers are not intended to last forever. That means you will require periodic touch-ups to maintain your desired aesthetic. Typically, results from a non-surgical nose job will last up to two years.
