CASE OF THE MONTH

Seattle rhinoplasty surgeon Sam Naficy, MD performed this rhinoplasty procedure to help refine the tip and reduce the hump on the bridge of the nose. The patient also had a deviated septum which was corrected at the same time as the rhinoplasty.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

A non-surgical rhinoplasty or non-surgical nose job is a type of procedure that uses injection of safe and effective filler materials to alter the shape of the nose. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a quick and easy alternative for those who want to improve certain features of their nose but are not yet ready for a surgical rhinoplasty. Non-surgical rhinoplasty typically takes 10 minutes to perform and has minimal discomfort and minimal recovery associated with it.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty by Dr. Sam Naficy for correction of undesirable nasal contour following rhinoplasty many years ago.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty can help with the following types of noses:

  • Noses with small humps or bumps
  • Noses that have had prior surgery and are overly scooped (ski slope noses)
  • Saddle nose deformity, also known as boxer's nose, which is caused by collapse of nasal structures typically caused by fracture
  • Pollybeak (aka poly Beak or supratip deformity) deformity
  • Nose with a retracted columella (a sharp and deep angle between the upper lip and the nose)
  • Noses with slight asymmetry

What Filler Material is used for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

The most common filler material used for non-surgical rhinoplasty is Radiesse. Radiesse is ideal for non-surgical rhinoplasty because it is soft enough that it can be injected and molded into shape, yet firm enough that it maintains its shape after injection. Radiesse is made up of tiny granules Calcium (the main element of human bone) so it is very safe and well tolerated by the body. Dr. Naficy has also performed a number of non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures using Restylane and fat injections. It is very important that the filler material is injected deeply, just above the bone of cartilage of the nose.

How Uncomfortable is a non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

We use a number of different numbing techniques designed to reduce your discomfort during a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure. These include topical numbing creams, skin cooling devices, and numbing medications.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty for Nasal Humps or Bumps

Nasal humps or bumps are the most common reason for rhinoplasty. Non-surgical rhinoplasty allows for correction or softening of nasal humps. Whereas with a surgical rhinoplasty procedure the portion of the nose causing the hump is removed, with non-surgical rhinoplasty the hump is camouflaged by injection of filler material next to the hump. The illustrations below show how a non-surgical rhinoplasty can be performed for correction of nasal humps and bumps.





Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed by adding filler above the hump to help blend the hump with the rest of the nose. After appropriate numbing treatments the needle is inserted under the skin and the filler material (typically Radiesse) is gradually introduced into the nose.





Typically in less than 1-2 minutes an appropriate amount of filler is placed and the nose has a new and improved shape with the bump being camouflaged and less visible.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty for Flat or Overly Scooped Noses

Sometimes after rhinoplasty the profile of the nose is overly scooped and sloped (sometime referred to as a ski-slope nose). Non-surgical rhinoplasty allows for correction of overly resected noses. Asian noses sometimes have naturally flat and broad bridges which can also be helped with this technique. The illustrations below show how a non-surgical rhinoplasty can be performed for rebuilding the bridge of the nose.





Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed by adding filler to the bridge of the nose to elevate the bridge and to improve the profile of the nose. After appropriate numbing treatments the needle is inserted under the skin and the filler material (typically Radiesse) is gradually introduced into the nose.





Typically in less than 1-2 minutes an appropriate amount of filler is placed and the nose has a new and improved shape with a more natural slope to the nose.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty for Saddle Nose Deformity

A saddle nose deformity (aka boxer's nose) is typically the result of prior injury and fracture of the nose where there is significant damage to the cartilage structure of the nose. Saddle nose deformity may also be caused by repeated nasal drug use (cocaine or decongestants) which can result in destruction of the septum. Non-surgical rhinoplasty allows for improvement of the saddle nose deformity by adding more structure to the collapsed middle part of the nose using Radiesse. The illustrations below show how a non-surgical rhinoplasty can be performed for correction of a saddle nose deformity.





Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed by adding filler material to the region of cartilage collapse. After appropriate numbing treatments the needle is inserted under the skin and the filler material (typically Radiesse) is gradually introduced into the nose.





Typically in less than 1-2 minutes an appropriate amount of filler is placed and the nose has a new and improved shape with a more desirable profile.

Non-SurgicaL Rhinoplasty for Polly Beak Deformity

A polly beak deformity (aka pollybeak deformity or supratip deformity) is typically the result of surgical rhinoplasty in which there was excessive removal of bone and cartilage, reducing the strength of the framework of the nose and resulting in the extra skin settling down above the tip . Non-surgical rhinoplasty allows for improvement of the polly beak deformity by adding more structure to the nose using Radiesse. The illustrations below show how a non-surgical rhinoplasty can be performed for correction of a pollybeak deformity.





Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed by adding filler back to the region where too much bone and cartilage was removed during the original rhinoplasty. After appropriate numbing treatments the needle is inserted under the skin and the filler material (typically Radiesse) is gradually introduced into the nose.





Typically in less than 1-2 minutes an appropriate amount of filler is placed and the nose has a new and improved shape with a more natural profile.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty for Retracted Columella

A retracted columella is typically either the result of surgical rhinoplasty or septoplasty, due to removal of a portion of the septal cartilage that gives the desired fullness to the angle between the nose and lip. This gives a sharp and droopy angle to the nose. Non-surgical rhinoplasty allows for improvement of a retracted columella by adding more structure to the nose using Radiesse. The illustrations below show how a non-surgical rhinoplasty can be performed for correction of a retracted columella.





Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed by adding filler to the base of the columella, at the angle between the lip and the nose. After appropriate numbing treatments the needle is inserted under the skin and the filler material (typically Radiesse) is gradually introduced into the nose.





Typically in less than 1-2 minutes an appropriate amount of filler is placed and the nose appears lifted and has an improved shape with a more natural nasolabial angle (angle between the upper lip and nose).

Cost of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

The cost of a non-surgical rhinoplasty is $595 for most patients, which is a fraction of the cost of a surgical rhinoplasty. If additional product is needed for touch-ups, the cost will be an additional $595.
