Q:  Hello Dr. Repta.  Thank you for taking my question.  My question is:  What exactly is a non-surgical rhinoplasty?  —Dee

A:  Hello Dee.  Thank you for the question.

A non-surgical rhinoplasty is any nose shaping that is done without actually using an incision or having to go into the operating room.   It is essentially using dermal fillers like Juviderm to add volume and shape to the nose.  Notice that a non-surgical rhinoplasty does not subtract from the nose but only adds to it.  Sometimes when there is a hump on the bridge of the nose that needs to be reduced we can add volume above and below it to camouflage the hump.  It seems counterintuitive but it can work quite nicely if it is done properly.  Please see below a recent example of a non-surgical rhinoplasty where dermal filler was used to camouflage the hump but also used to give the tip a little more projection to match up with the now higher nasal bridge.  Since we are using a dermal filler, a non-surgical rhinoplasty is not permanent and must be done every 6-18 months depending on the filler chosen.
