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.


Any areas on the face and neck with saggy skin can be treated. This includes the double chin, jowls and other areas with deep lines and loose skin.

Ideal Canidate

  • someone who is seeking a minor, temporary alteration
  • cannot or does not wish to undergo surgery
  • wants to look better for an upcoming event such as a wedding
  • someone who is considering a surgical rhinoplasty and wants to see what a specific change may look like


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.

Who Should Perform It

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.

"World-class Surgeon with a Small-town Manner"

“I was really impressed by how much he knew about state-of-the art surgical techniques and practiced them. He is clearly an extremely skilled surgeon. He is also a very intelligent and kind person. As someone who doesn't love the idea of surgery, I felt comfortable and confident… As someone who works as a professor and an artist, I can say that Dr. Zimm sets a high bar for engaging with people and teaching them about their condition, for putting people at ease and building trust, and for clearly being passionate about both the artistry and the technical dexterity of his work. I couldn't recommend him more.”

"He won me by his demeanor, his experience, strive for perfection and honesty."

“Need a perfect, natural-looking nose? Go nowhere else but to Dr. Zimm!...Being involved in the industry myself, I went to 13 different rhinoplasty consultations in NYC to find the right surgeon. After hearing lots of opinions, prices and seeing different images of the "perfect" nose, I chose Dr. Zimm. He won me by his demeanor, his experience, strive for perfection and honesty. He also didn't have a "signature" nose he puts on every one of his patients (walk around the UES and you'll know what I'm talking about). He is truly an amazing surgeon and anyone who works with him at the hospital will tell you the same.”

Without hesitation, I have to say I could not have made a better choice in surgeons!!!! Dr. Zimm was confident and competent, he also had a wonderful bedside manner and made me feel as though he was treating a friend or family member of his own. Fantastic! Not to mention the results are amazing!!!! Completely natural, but amazing Thank you Dr. Zimm!!!!!!”

"From the moment you step into Dr. Zimm's office you feel at ease."

"I spent the bulk of my life feeling self conscious about how my ears were set on my head, and I started to look around for surgeons for my otoplasty to help correct them. After my first meeting with Dr. Zimm, I cancelled my remaining consultations with other surgeons. Dr. Zimm and his staff make you feel at ease and informed at every step of the process. From the consistent and clear communication all the way through to the fantastic results and follow up care, Dr. Zimm was without a doubt the right choice to handle my case. Thank you Dr. Zimm and team!"


Frequently asked questions

A non-surgical nose job in New York City involves injecting dermal fillers into the soft tissues of the nose, temporarily altering its shape. One advantage of these fillers is that the results are immediate but will only last a finite amount of time.

Dermal fillers used on the nose provide results that typically last up to 12 months. This can be extended with touch-up procedures around 6 months post-injection. While the results are not permanent, the lower cost and minimal to no recovery have made non-surgical rhinoplasty a great option for many.

A non-surgical or liquid rhinoplasty in New York City involves the injection of dermal fillers. The injection can produce some discomfort or mild pain, but the majority of patients will agree the pain is bearable or even more tolerable than they expected. However, certain areas such as the nasal tip and lip area are more sensitive than others. 

Many surgeons will use numbing creams and dermal fillers containing lidocaine or other local anesthetics to reduce injection-associated pain. Overall, the procedure takes 10–15 minutes and the majority of patients return to work or school immediately after the procedure.

The use of dermal fillers for nose jobs can be a risky procedure, especially when performed by an inexperienced injector. While the most common side effects include temporary bruising and swelling, there are rare but serious side effects that can occur during non-surgical nose augmentation. 

  • Occlusion of vein or artery. The inadvertent injection of filler into a vein or artery can result in the blockage of the vessel causing skin and tissue death, scarring, and even blindness.
  • Infection. The risk of infection is low when proper procedures are followed during the injection but can not be completely eliminated.
  • Allergic reaction. Some patients may find they are allergic to a component of the injection causing redness, swelling, itching, and pain.

Overall, dermal filler injections, especially in the nasal area, should not be taken lightly and should be performed by experienced surgeons with knowledge of the complex anatomy of the face. 

Dermal fillers such as Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® are frequently used to perform non-invasive rhinoplasty in New York City. Of these two fillers, Restylane® can be the preferred agent in certain circumstances. 

Restylane® provides increased durability and more naturally looking results. It is composed of a sugar molecule that is safe and compatible with the body. For these reasons, it is regarded as one of the best fillers for use in non-surgical nose reshaping procedures.

The cost of liquid rhinoplasty in New York City can range from $3,000 to $4,500 depending on various factors. The price will vary depending on the type of filler used, how much filler is needed, and the experience/expertise of the surgeon performing the injection. The total cost will be discussed before any injection allowing patients to determine if the injection is the right choice for them.
