A non-surgical or injectable rhinoplasty is a viable option for people who would like to enhance the appearance of their nose and face without surgery. It primarily functions to camouflage small imperfections in the nasal tip as well as a small bump on the nasal bridge. Dr. Zimm uses dermal fillers such as Juvederm® or Restylane® to achieve smooth and natural results. It is performed as an office procedure using topical numbing cream and typical takes 15-30 minutes with minimal discomfort. You will see the results in real time as its being performed!
Dr. Zimm believes it’s important to involve his patients actively during the process. As a result, he will have his patients look in the mirror to see the immediate results during the procedure and provide feedback in real time.
Also, there is no “down time.” Most patients go back to work the same day. Since Dr. Zimm only uses temporary fillers in the nose, your results will last anywhere from 6 months to 18 months on average.
Non-surgical (injectable) Rhinoplasty will not make the nose smaller, narrow a broad nasal bridge, nor refine a wide/bulbous nasal tip. Also, it will not improve your nasal breathing. It cannot replace the results of a surgical rhinoplasty which remains the gold standard for improving both nasal aesthetics and breathing.
Injectable rhinoplasty should be performed by a rhinoplasty expert (who performs this surgery regularly) familiar with the detailed anatomy and function of the nose. Since every case is unique, Dr. Zimm meets with each patient to review the options and determine what solution is ideal for them at that particular time in their life.
