Non-Surgical Nosejob in New York City

by Dr. Cameron Rokhsar

A non-surgical nose job is the only method available to reshape the look of your nose without the need for a scalpel or any incisions at all. This gives patients who have modest cosmetic goals to even out the bump on their nose, create a thinner bridge, fill in a bridge, or a more narrow tip in order to make their profile more aesthetically pleasing, yet the thought of surgery deters them from making a desired change to that crooked bit in your most prominent facial feature. The non-surgical nose job is a simple procedure, pioneered by Dr. Rokhsar.  Dr. Rokhsar has been featured on Rachel Ray, where he performed the 15-minute non-surgical nose job in front of a live audience, while he explained the benefits of the procedure.

Non-Surgical Nose Job Before & After

A small amount of the filler, Radiesse, is placed using controlled, precise injections, in order to camouflage bumps and asymmetries, create an up-turned tip, or to build a more prominent bridge. Just as fillers are used to smoothen out wrinkles, they can fill out areas of the nose to correct minor deformities. Radiesse is a calcium-based filler which is why it will provide results that last longer and provide adequate restructuring for the nose. It is made up of calcium hydroxyl apatite crystals, which is very similar to what is found in bone and teeth, so really it is a nice complimentary substance to add in the treatment area. In addition, the added benefits are that it stimulates the cells in your skin to produce more collagen, which will further enhance the natural contour of your nose (so long as the filler is present). The wrinkle filler, Radiesse, has been around for several years but once it received approval from the Food and Drug Administration for use in reshaping the nose (and also augmenting the chin), it has become a revolutionary success in the world of cosmetic surgery. It is also user to add volume to the face when age has hollowed out the face, and also fill in wrinkles by stimulating collagen production and smoothening out the skin’s surface.

In the past, rhinoplasty has been the only option for people who are unhappy with the shapes of their noses.  While this procedure is extremely effective, many people are dissuaded because of recovery time or cost, and some are still not satisfied ever after undergoing surgery.  Unlike rhinoplasty, the non-surgical nose job is a fraction of the price of surgery, can be performed during a patient’s lunch hour, and has no down-time.  An added benefit of the non-surgical nose job, is that you can work with Dr. Rokhsar as he is performing the procedure in order to obtain an optimal cosmetic result.

Rhinoplasty, or nose jobs, are one of the most desired cosmetic procedures although the non-surgical route is not as permanent, this procedure is ideally designed for people who want the nose reshaping benefits of rhinoplasty quickly and safely, without undergoing extensive rhinoplasty. Non-surgical nose job is a nose job which does not actually alter the structure of the nose itself.

What happens during the procedure?

Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream is placed on the nose for thirty minutes.  This helps to decrease discomfort during the procedure.  After the application of a topical numbing cream, and once it has been removed, Dr. Rokhsar injects the filler, Radiesse, beneath the skin on the nose.  The small amount of Radiesse, a safe, reliable dermal filler is injected into depressed areas of the nose. The filler is then carefully sculpted to smooth out bumps, irregularities and asymmetries. The result is a subtly re-contoured nose that looks natural without having to make an incision.  Surgical nose jobs can result in over or under-correction, with possibility of an undesirable cosmetic outcome. Whereas, with the non-surgical procedure, the filler is precisely injected in small amounts so that there is total control over the shape and contours created by the procedure. The results are immediate and last from eight months to two years, depending on the type of filler that is used. Because the results are relatively temporary, adjustments can be made as your face changes over time. The procedure itself takes less than fifteen minutes.

Is there any down time?

There is no down time after the procedure, but you may experience some bruising or swelling.  These can be minimized by icing directly after the procedure and typically resolve in a week or less. There are so many benefits to a surgery-free nose job. Traditional nose jobs require the use of anesthesia, therefore it carries certain risks like anesthesia complications, infections, scarring, long recovery and lay-off from work, unwanted or unexpected cosmetic surgery results. Whereas, non-surgical nose jobs do not need anesthesia and avoid the risks of surgery since it involves only injection into the skin. The procedure is much more precise than surgical rhinoplasty, so more detailed adjustments to nasal contour can be made. The non-surgical nose job procedure does not cause nosebleeds or persistent swelling. The procedure is temporary and there are no long term scarring complications.

Are there any restrictions after the procedure?

You may return to most of your normal activities.  Dr. Rokhsar asks that you do not wear glasses or engage in any contact sports for one week following your procedures.  This allows the filler to set. Considering all of the advantages and the low risk of a non-surgical nose job compared to traditional rhinoplasty, it is easy to see why it has been such a popular and successful treatment option since its introduction.

How long does this procedure last?

In the nose, Radiesse lasts between nine months and a year.   Most patients return annually, and a few return before the year is over for a touch up. Most patients return to work on the same day as the non-surgical nose job, procedure. The results are immediate and there is no significant swelling or pain. However, it is advisable to avoid sunglasses or heavy eyeglasses for two weeks after the procedure, as the filler material becomes integrated into the skin of the nose.
