A Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Using Injectables
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is an innovative procedure that offers patients a way to improve the shape and contour of their nose without surgery. Dr. Kristina Tansavatdi is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon who performs non-surgical rhinoplasty at her facility in the Thousand Oaks area. The injectable fillers Dr. Tansavatdi uses during a non-surgical rhinoplasty include Restylane® and Radiesse®. Depending on the issues being addressed, she may also decide to use BOTOX® Cosmetic.
5 Reasons Patients Choose A Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Below are five of the reasons patients request a non-surgical rhinoplasty.
1. To Lengthen A Short Nose
Dr. Tansavatdi uses dermal fillers to lengthen a short nose.
2. To Build Up A Wide, Flat Bridge
Wide, flat bridges are common facial features within African American and Asian populations. The results of building up the bridge of the nose with a non-surgical rhinoplasty are very similar to the results achieved through surgical rhinoplasty because the surgical procedure involves using an implant or cartilage to build up the bridge; whereas, its non-surgical counterpart uses dermal fillers.
3. To Fill-In And Even-Out Contour Irregularities
Dr. Tansavatdi diminishes bumps by injecting filler in the bridge of the nose directly above the bump; thus, making the bridge of the nose appear straighter. In addition, non-surgical rhinoplasty can address irregularities such as scars and indentions.
4. To Create A More Symmetrical Nose
Dr. Tansavatdi uses dermal fillers to balance the bridge with the tip of the nose; consequently, making the nose appear more symmetrical.
5. Add Some Definition And/Or Height To The Nasal Tip
An individual who is unhappy with the fact that his or her nasal tip points down might be a good candidate for a non-surgical rhinoplasty. Many times, it is an overactive muscle that pulls the nasal tip down. This issue is especially noticeable when the individual smiles. During a non-surgical rhinoplasty, Dr. Tansavatdi can use BOTOX® Cosmetic to release this muscle; furthermore, she can use dermal fillers to add definition to the tip of the nose.
Although these are some of the common reasons that patients request a non-surgical rhinoplasty, there are other issues that this procedure can address. To determine if you are a good candidate for a non-surgical rhinoplasty, schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Tansavatdi at her facility near Thousand Oaks today.
