A non-surgical nose job is nasal reshaping performed with the use of dermal fillers instead of a scalpel. It can be used to correct nasal bumps, nasal asymmetry, downward pointing noses and broad nasal bridges. These treatments are best performed by board certified dermatologists and is a quick outpatient procedure with minimal downtime.
Many patients desire a nose job but don’t have the 3 weeks of downtime required for surgical rhinoplasty, and in these cases non-surgical nose jobs can be a great alternative.
What is the material used to perform a non-surgical nose job?
The most common filler used for this procedure is Radiesse. During the procedure, Radiesse is injected below the skin and laid directly on the nasal bone and cartilage. Radiesse is an FDA approved product, composed mainly of Calcium Hydroxylapatite, a substance that is found in human bone tissue. To read more about Radiesse, click here.
Can you tell me about the actual procedure and how it works?
Before the filler is injected, topical anesthesia is applied to the nose to reduce any discomfort and numb the area. Dr. Schweiger then injects small amounts of Radiesse using a small needle into precise locations on the nose to give fill in bumps, creating optimal results. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and patients can leave the office immediately after. Results are visible instantly, and final results occur within one week.
How long does Radiesse last?
For non-surgical nose jobs Radiesse lasts for about 1 year.
Who performs the Radiesse Injections?
All Radiesse nose jobs are performed by New York City dermatologist, Dr. Eric Schweiger. Dr. Schweiger is board certified in dermatology and considered an expert injector of Radiesse.
