According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFRPS), rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is the most requested surgical procedure for both men and women for the fifth consecutive year.
Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, our experienced physician, is thrilled to offer a minimally invasive option to achieve the nasal shape and contour patients desire.
In many cases, a non-surgical nose job from our practice can be completed in as little as 10 minutes. This technique utilizes dermal fillers to help address and correct nasal bumps, irregularities, and asymmetry without surgery. During the initial consultation, Dr. Ebrahim will examine the areas of concern and discuss the patient’s aesthetic preferences. She will then develop a customized treatment plan based on the individual’s anatomic needs and cosmetic goals.
The dermal fillers we use for the non-surgical nose job typically will be comprised of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body. This can help to minimize the risk for allergic reaction in patients with sensitivities.
To further enhance patient comfort, we offer both a topical numbing cream and local anesthetic, which will be utilized if requested. As the procedure is usually quite quick, most individuals report little discomfort.
One of the primary advantages of a non-surgical nose job is the long-lasting result. The nasal bridge experiences little mobility and, as a result, typically will absorb the dermal filler at a slower rate than when this product is administered to other areas of the face. Although ultimately temporary, the benefits of this procedure can continue for up to a year! Patients may also extend the effects with occasional maintenance treatments.
Following treatment, improvement in the nose should be immediately visible. Additionally, there is usually little to no downtime. Some minor bruising may occur, though this should fade quickly, and the effect can be concealed with light makeup.
Our non-surgical nose job can offer a wide range of benefits for patients who have:
· An irregular, depressed, or asymmetrical nasal bridge
Flat or concave nasal bridge
· A desire for a minimally invasive method for nose reshaping
During a complimentary consultation, Dr. Ebrahim will be happy to discuss your goals and suitability for the nose procedure. She can also provide alternative options and a breakdown of treatment costs. Contact us today to reserve your appointment or call 604-980-3993.
