Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty : Getting the Nose You Want Without Surgery

Robert H.Burke, MD,FACS

A nonsurgical rhinoplasty offers improved nasal appearance with no invasive surgery, and no scars.

Who are the best candidates for this procedure?

Men and women who do not wish an invasive surgical procedure, may be poor surgical risks due to health issues (yet want visible nasal correction), and those who lead busy lives and don’t have time for recovery from surgery, are all potential candidates for the procedure.

Is the procedure permanent?

Although this is not a permanent procedure, the results are often long lasting.  (Many last over 1 year). Treatment can be repeated as needed.

Can this procedure be reversed?

Yes, this procedure can be reversed if necessary.  In actual practice it is very rare to reverse the effects.

How do I know if this will work for me?

Dr.Burke uses predictive multidimensional digital imaging in preprocedure treatment planning to help you see your own possible results before any treatment. This review and discussion help define your personal treatment goals and possible realistic outcomes prior to treatment.

Can you show an example of a nonsurgical rhinoplasty?

This patient of Dr.Burke is in her 20’s. She presented to his office seeking correction of a nose lacking its normal size and contour (dorsum).  She was aware that cartilage and/or bone grafting could be done, but did not want an invasive procedure. She was able to breath through her nose without difficulty and was concerned only with her nasal dorsal appearance. Due to a heavy work schedule, the desire for immediate correction, and a wish not to undergo invasive surgery, she chose a nonsurgical rhinoplasty.  These are the lateral before/after photos showing the dorsal nasal correction. She returned to work 2 days after the procedure.
