How is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Performed?
Dr. Sajjadian begins a non-surgical nose job by applying a topical numbing cream to maximize patient comfort. Once the treatment area is numb, Dr. Sajjadian places a series of filler injections (usually containing Hydroxyapatite or Hyaluronic acid fillers) in precise locations throughout the nose. The entire procedure takes only 15 minutes!
In some cases, fat can be harvested from other areas of the body and used in place of conventional fillers for the nose. Dr. Sajjadian will discuss your options in-depth to determine if you might be a good candidate for this procedure, or if a conventional rhinoplasty would be a better choice to achieve your desired look.
