Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty in Long Island

Rhinoplasty is the most effective option for changing the nose’s shape, size, or function. This surgical procedure can correct breathing abnormalities and create dramatic changes in your appearance. Unfortunately, rhinoplasty comes with a lengthy recovery. For people who want to improve their nasal appearance without surgery, a non-surgical procedure is an excellent option. 

Dr. Meredith Vandegrift offers non-surgical rhinoplasty to her patients in Long Island. She uses dermal fillers to reshape your nose without the discomfort, downtime, or recovery of a surgical procedure. Learn more about non-surgical rhinoplasty by contacting Dr. Vandegrift at (631) 935-0303.

What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an innovative aesthetic treatment that uses dermal fillers for nasal reshaping. In a traditional rhinoplasty, tissue reshaping and removal alter the nose’s appearance. In a non-surgical rhinoplasty, Dr. Vandegrift doesn’t remove any tissue. Instead, she injects dermal fillers into your nose. By adding volume with biocompatible fillers, Dr. Vandegrift can treat various nasal issues, including dips and depressions, asymmetry, and a lack of facial balance.

Unlike the permanent changes that are possible with a surgical rhinoplasty, dermal fillers typically provide temporary results. If you love your new look, you may need to have a non-surgical rhinoplasty repeated once or twice per year to maintain results.

The Benefits of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Surgery is the gold standard for long-lasting, permanent rhinoplasty results, but there are many benefits to a non-surgical procedure. These include:

  • No downtime 
  • No incisions or stitches
  • No scars
  • Less discomfort
  • Not permanent (ideal for patients who want to try on a new look)
  • Reversible with a quick in-office procedure (for hyaluronic acid fillers)

Non-surgical rhinoplasty isn’t the right choice for every patient. This procedure is ideal if you want to reshape your nose without surgery or downtime. However, it may not be the right choice for you if you have breathing difficulties or desire a permanent result.

What Happens During a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Procedure?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an in-office procedure. Dr. Vandegrift performs the injections in one of our treatment rooms; no operating room is necessary. After cleansing your nose to remove dirt, oil, and bacteria, she injects filler into your nose and the surrounding tissues until she has created your desired shape.

To ensure each patient loves their results, Dr. Vandegrift performs an in-depth consultation before each non-surgical rhinoplasty. In this in-person meeting, she’ll ask you about your desired outcomes and lifestyle. Your answers to these questions will help her plan the non-surgical rhinoplasty. She’ll also ask about your medical and plastic surgery history to ensure the procedure is safe for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty in Long Island

Many different types of fillers are used in a non-surgical rhinoplasty. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is also a naturally occuring substance in the body. Dr. Vandegrift can tell you which specific filler she plans to use during your procedure.

Pricing for a non-surgical rhinoplasty varies depending on the complexity of the anatomy, and desired aesthetic goals. Dr. Vandegrift will provide an estimate of your costs during your consultation before the procedure begins.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure. Patients return home on the same day as their procedure. Since this treatment is much less invasive than surgery, you can immediately return to work and other activities if you wish. There is no need for downtime. 

On the day of treatment, tenderness, redness, and swelling are common. These side effects are temporary and resolve quickly. Results are immediately visible after treatment, but will improve and refine as the swelling goes down.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be very safe, provided it is performed in a medical facility by an experienced injector. Dr. Vandegrift is a board-certified plastic surgeon with an excellent safety record. Her patients generally have good outcomes from this procedure, and severe complications are rare. 

The dermal fillers used in non-surgical rhinoplasty are not permanent. Patients who want to maintain the results of their non-surgical rhinoplasty may  need to return to our office every six to 12 months for reinjection. 

Non-surgical rhinoplasty adds filler to the nose and cannot reduce its size. However, by balancing your nasal appearance with your other facial features, non-surgical rhinoplasty may be able to help your nose look smaller. Dr. Vandegrift can help you decide if non-surgical rhinoplasty will yield your desired results or if you would be a better candidate for a surgical procedure. 

Many of our patients opt to pair non-surgical rhinoplasty with Botox or dermal filler treatments on other areas of the face. Botox and fillers can refresh the facial appearance and enhance the results of this procedure.
