Injection Rhinoplasty, Non-Surgical Nose Job – “The 15 Minute Nose Job”
As the most prominent facial feature, the nose has the most significant impact on a person’s appearance. For many people, committing to Rhinoplasty surgery, is a challenging decision due to the permanency of the procedure. Therefore, it has become quite common for both men and women to opt for injection rhinoplasty first, a non-surgical approach, allowing individuals to see how nose reshaping can help them enhance their facial appearance, temporarily.
What Is Injection Rhinoplasty?
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure performed to alter the nose in some way. It is usually done to change the nose’s structure or form. Injection rhinoplasty’s greatest strength is its ability to subtly alter the contours of your nose to improve your facial aesthetics.
It is a less-invasive procedure that involves injecting dermal fillers into the nose. This can be used to alter the angle of the nasal tip or lessen the appearance of nasal bridge bumps.
During the injection rhinoplasty procedure, either a topical anesthetic or a local anesthetic will be applied to your nose. Most surgeons prefer the topical anesthetic, which is usually applied as a cream. Once the area has been numbed, the surgeon will use a syringe to inject the filler into the deep subcutaneous tissues. Depending on the amount of work involved, most injection rhinoplasty procedures are completed in about a half hour.
Is Injection Rhinoplasty Right For Me?
Injection Rhinoplasty may be a good choice for patients who are anxious about having incision-based surgery and want to see how changes to their nose will appear before committing to a more permanent change. Injection rhinoplasty can also be used on patients who would like subtle enhancements after rhinoplasty surgery, as well as patients who are considering a revision rhinoplasty and want to test how the changes would look before they commit to undergoing a permanent procedure. Patients who have had a “botched” rhinoplasty surgery can also potentially fix some of their issues instead of undergoing another surgical procedure.
Am I A Good Candidate For Injection Rhinoplasty?
As with any procedure performed at the clinic and with your safety being the top priority, Dr. Philip Solomon will need to ensure that you are a good candidate for injection rhinoplasty. A good candidate is someone who is looking for subtle changes that include filling in depressions and small divots on the nose, and perhaps smoothing out nasal bumps.
Are There Any Limitations?
Despite the versatility of injection rhinoplasty, the procedure does have some limitations. One limitation is that it cannot make your nose smaller. If you are looking to decrease your nose, you’ll have to get a traditional rhinoplasty procedure. Another is internal structural issues. You will also have to have a traditional rhinoplasty procedure if you want to correct certain medical conditions that can only be corrected through a surgical procedure inside the nose. If you have any medical conditions or are currently on any medications it is advisable to be completely honest in order to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
The First Steps To A Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Once Dr. Solomon has completed his examination, he will work with the patient to come up with an individualized treatment plan. Several different options will be explored, and Dr. Solomon will be sure to explain the risks and benefits of each. The computer imaging technology will also help show patients the projected result and help give them the information they need to make the decision that works best for them. The procedure can be performed the same day as the consultation if you so choose.
Again, it is important to note that being realistic is key. While a non-surgical rhinoplasty can improve almost anyone’s appearance, it is important to have realistic expectations to avoid disappointment after the procedure has been performed. When you consult with Dr. Philip Solomon, please discuss your expectations, and be as specific as possible about what you want the procedure to accomplish. Dr. Solomon has worked with patients to improve all kinds of issues, from medical to cosmetic. He will be able to guide you on what can realistically be obtained and how he will technically approach your case in order to give you the desired results you wish to achieve.

What Is The Recovery Time?
Injection Rhinoplasty is also referred to as the “lunch time nose job” because patients can return to work right after the procedure as pain and swelling are minimal. Many physicians say two hours should be more than enough time to recover from an injection rhinoplasty, while others say to give yourself two days. However, Dr. Philip Solomon, Otolaryngologist, Head and Neck Surgeon practicing Facial Plastic Surgery and his staff of registered nurses and medical professionals, will be sure to assess the healing process while you recover and advise you on when you can expect the pain and swelling to go away.
While injection rhinoplasties are not as invasive as a surgical rhinoplasty surgery, patients should still avoid wearing any glasses that press into the nasal bridge and avoid any facials that involve extractions, as you do not want to apply pressure to your new nose for up to two weeks. Dr. Solomon will provide you with guidelines on how to care for your newly reshaped nose, right after the procedure.

How Long Will The Results Last?
The results of an injection rhinoplasty will last about a year depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the product. The body does absorb the filler naturally over time. This will allow patients time to adjust to their new appearance and determine if they wish to continue with injection treatments or pursue permanent rhinoplasty surgery. Patients can repeat injection treatments to experiment with re-shaping. While rhinoplasty does have a reputation for having a high revision rate, Dr. Solomon has the medical skills and experience to create an injection rhinoplasty that should meet your desired goals.
It’s Important To Trust An Expert
In order to minimize risks and complications, it is important to seek an experienced injector.
