The same minimally invasive options are available for rhinoplasty.
Dermal Fillers and PDO absorbable threads can provide satisfactory aesthetic outcomes with little to no downtime. For this reason, this procedure has become a popular alternative to the surgical Rhinoplasty. Superficial nasal deformities, such as a crooked bridge or dorsum hump, can be temporarily corrected without surgically altering the underlying structure of the nose. When carefully injected into the proper areas relative to the “hump,” hyaluronic based fillers like Juvederm TM can create the straight, appearance desired. By adding volume to the areas injected, fillers help to sculpt and reshape the nose.
Polydioxanone threads (PDO) when placed beneath the skin act as a scaffolding structure which helps contour and shape the nose to the desired state. You can use short PDO threads and stack them to give the nose more of a nasal bridge. Depending on the preferred outcome, whether it be to correct an injured or crooked nose, correct imperfections caused by surgical rhinoplasty, or even build up and shape the nose to fit an individual’s personal preference, one or a combination of these two procedures can be used.
Dr. Reyes uses a canula, or blunt needle, for both of these procedures. Because of this, there is minimal bruising. A patient can get back to normal activities the day after the procedure is performed.
While surgical rhinoplasty is the best option for functional defects like septal deviation, non-surgical rhinoplasty is an excellent option for those who want a purely aesthetic correction with minimal downtime. These procedures offer a solution to many of the problems individuals have with the appearance of their nose rather than correcting a functional defect they need to correct.
