A nonsurgical rhinoplasty is an injection technique where filler material is injected into areas of the nose to create the illusion of a rhinoplasty procedure. A patient who has a nasal hump can be injected above the hump where there is a relative depression compared to the prominence of the hump and this can then give the illusion that the hump is smaller. If there are any depressions or irregularities to the nose, these can also be filled with filler material. The far majority of individuals that perform nonsurgical rhinoplasties are individuals that do not have the ability to perform a proper rhinoplasty in the first place. I blog on nonsurgical rhinoplasty only to, for the most part, condemn it as I do not feel this is a proper technique for treatment of the nose except in extenuating circumstances such as a patient that has contraindications to a surgical procedure or in a patient that has a prominent depression or irregularity and is only seeking a temporary solution to the problem until they can have a formal rhinoplasty performed. Otherwise I feel that the nonsurgical rhinoplasty especially if performed with longer lasting or permanent fillers is fraught with complications that are extremely difficult to rectify. I have personally performed nonsurgical rhinoplasties, but only in the circumstances previously mentioned. I would therefore recommend that anybody that desires a nonsurgical rhinoplasty seek a very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon, so that all of your options can be discussed. If you seek out a person who advertises nonsurgical rhinoplasty, more than likely you will be seeing someone who is not experienced in the actual rhinoplasty surgery and your options will therefore be very limited. I describe this to my patients as the saying of “when your only tool is a hammer, all the world is a nail”, which means that if you do not know how to do a rhinoplasty, you will never offer this surgery to your patients. I once again therefore highly recommend you seek out an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon so that you can have all of your options explained to you in detail.
