A permanent non-surgical nose job, also known as injection rhinoplasty or a 15 minute nose job, is just what it sounds like…. a permanent, minimally invasive, non-surgical nose reshaping procedure.
Am I a candidate for a permanent non-surgical nose job?
A non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure has the best results on:
Injection rhinoplasty can’t make your nose smaller or improve conditions inside your nose.
Many people considering cosmetic facial surgery are not certain if their particular situation is appropriate for either the surgical or non-surgical improvement. To help those just beginning the important research and homework, we offer an opportunity for Dr. Kotler to review your photos.
Sterile salt water is injected under the skin via a tiny needle. In fewer than 60 seconds, patients will know if they will be satisfied. Holding a mirror, they see exactly what the permanent filler will accomplish. It’s a dress rehearsal, a “test drive”. Two hours later the saline’s gone but photos taken before and after and emailed to the patient document the improvement for the patient’s review and study at home. One happy patient dubbed it “The Cinderella Procedure”.
In our 38 years’ experience, the permanent, non-surgical rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty technique has had a near perfect record of success and patient satisfaction. Free of the standard surgical complications and side effects, patient endorsement, as noted in our practice reviews, has been extraordinary.
Nearly all other cosmetic or plastic surgeons use temporary fillers. For 38 years, our practice has specialized in performing non-surgical rhinoplasty using a permanent filler. Our technique delivers tiny micro-droplets of filler just under the nasal skin only in the places where your nose needs attention. Your body automatically surrounds the filler with an invisible microscopic wall of natural tissue which renders the improvement permanent.
A 27 or even 30-guage needle, one of the finest known at .01025 of an inch, about the thickness of six human hairs, delivers the liquid from a specialized injection syringe graduated in 1/100ths of a CC (5 ccs per teaspoon).
To assure patient comfort, a prescription anesthetic ointment is applied to the skin prior to the procedure.
Most commonly, patients require three office appointments six or more weeks apart to complete the mission. Such incremental or graduated filling allows for more precision and neutralizes any possibility of overfilling. Very unusual or complex cases may require one or two additional treatments.
After the injection, it’s back into the world. No swelling. No bruising. No at-home recovery. Appropriate for a lunch-hour office visit.
