COVID-19 Reopening Updates View Update Virtual Consultation

People who would like to correct the shape of their nose but are wary of surgery now have an alternative through the use of dermal fillers. Topical creams or local anesthetics can be used to make the injections pain-free. The procedure takes under 20 minutes and lasts as long as three months to two years.

Unlike rhinoplasty surgery, there is little bleeding and virtually no downtime. Patients can return to work immediately. There may be slight swelling and be bruising, but it can be remedied with light icing and acetaminophen. Do not take NSAIDs as they can lead to excess bleeding. Pain and swelling should subside within a day or two. People of all races, genders, and ages can use dermal fillers to smooth an irregularity on their nose.

Reduce Humps on the Nose

Dermal fillers can be used to smooth a hump on the nose, depending on how large it is. The fillers are usually temporary and include reputable brands such as Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane. The filler is injected on either side of the protuberance, which often occurs along the bridge of the nose. By lifting the skin that surrounds the bump, it gives the appearance of an even surface and a smooth nose.

Depressions and Lines on the Tip

The same method can be used to fill in depressions and lines on the tip of the nose. Other abnormalities may be caused by certain birth defects, trauma, or failed surgical rhinoplasty.

Large Nostrils

Dermal injections may also help to fill in large nostrils. Regardless of the cause, many irregularities can be corrected and give the patient a smooth profile at a much lower cost than surgical rhinoplasty.

  • Artefill is a more long-lasting dermal filler. Artefill is injected above the fat layer whereas other fillers are subcutaneous. It is sometimes recommended that people use more temporary fillers first to get an idea of the shape they want. A skin test is also needed for them to be sure the patient is not reactive to the filler.
  • Restylane or Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the body. These injections plump up the skin in the area in which they are injected. They usually last for around six months but can be dissolved with an injectable enzyme if the shape is not to your liking.
  • Radiesse can last one to one-and-a-half-years. It is a calcium-based dermal filler. It is a non-allergic option.

Other Pros to Non-surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty costs around a $1,000 for a series of treatments, whereas surgical rhinoplasty can cost from $5,000 to $9,000 at Dr. Vincent Marin’s practice.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is safer than traditional surgery. It does not require anesthesia or prolonged recovery. Traditional rhinoplasty also runs the risk of numbness, nosebleeds, and unwanted damage to cartilage and airways. When performed by an inexperienced surgeon, it can also result in permanent, undesirable aesthetic results.

TO OUR MARIN AESTHETICS PATIENTS:

In light of the state wide restrictions on non-essential businesses to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are rescheduling all of our elective appointments until the global circumstances improve. Our necessary post-operative appointments will be made, as needed, to address immediate surgical concerns such as suture removal and acute postoperative issues. All non-acute follow up appointments, fillers and Botox will need to be postponed until after the quarantine period mid April. Our office will reach out to all patients who need to be rescheduled.

We will be offering new patient virtual consultations online and via Skype that can be scheduled through our website or by emailing info@marinaesthetics.com. Also, we will offer follow-up appointments in the same manner to help manage our patients’ concerns while still respecting the need for social distancing.

We appreciate all of your understanding during these difficult times for all of us.

Stay safe,

Dr. Main and the Marin Aesthetics Team
