Alternatives Nose Surgery
There is good news for patients that are not ready for getting a surgical rhinoplasty performed. Non-surgical rhinoplasty or liquid rhinoplasty is a filler-based technique that can treat minor nasal deformities. Minor cosmetic imperfections within the nose can be corrected by using a soft tissue filler injection.
Your plastic surgeon will use an FDA approved dermal filler injection for filling in the dents or depressions in the nose area. This will create an effect similar to a structural change helping improve the overall facial appearance. Temporary injectable fillers are used in the procedure. Periodic touch-ups may be required by patients for maintaining treatment results in the long run.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is favored by a number of patients over surgical techniques because it is safer, quicker and minimally invasive. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides non-surgical rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
