Transform Your Appearance with the 30-Minute Non-surgical Nose Job
If you have a big bump on your nose or an asymmetrical nose shape that is making you self-conscious about your appearance, you might have considered getting rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery, to fix your facial profile. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that 255,972 rhinoplasty procedures were performed in 2009 alone. While the nose job continues to be a popular procedure for both men and women, it does have some risks. The non-surgical nose job can be performed in 30 minutes or less, and offers an alternative to going under the knife.
Dr. Alexander Rivkin of Westside Aesthetics is the inventor of the non-surgical nose job procedure. Thousands of patients have turned to him for the non-surgical nose job as an alternative to surgery and he performs an average of 25 nonsurgical nose jobs every week at his practice in Los Angeles, California. Take a look at these non-surgical rhinoplasty before and after pictures to see examples of successful outcomes with this type of procedure.
We talked to Dr. Rivkin to find out why this has become such a popular procedure, and to find out what you could expect from this nose job alternative.
Dr. Rivkin’s Non-surgical Nose Job
Dr. Alexander Rivkin developed the nonsurgical nose job just about a decade ago. He was the first facial cosmetic surgeon in the United States to perform this type of procedure, and he is currently an international authority on non-surgical cosmetic treatments. He has dedicated his career to finding surgical alternatives and has performed thousands of non-surgical nose jobs to date.
To achieve results similar to a regular nose job, Dr. Rivkin uses Radiesse or Artefill injectable fillers to add volume to various parts of the nose. He can administer just the right amount of the injectable to the tissues around the nose to create the ideal nose shape. Radiesse fillers are used to perform a temporary nose job procedure which lasts between 10 to 12 months. Artefill is used to produce permanent results. There is virtually no downtime involved.
Dr. Rivkin states, “Some patients experience some redness and bruising, but it’s nothing compared to regular rhinoplasty”. Most patients get this procedure because they have fears of an unwanted outcome with nose job surgery, and are just scared of going under the knife.
Top Benefits of a Nonsurgical Nose Job
Dr. Rivkin says that the non-surgical nose job has become an incredibly popular procedure for the following reasons:
- Fast recovery process and virtually no healing involved
- Cost-effective procedure – a temporary procedure costs $1,000 while a permanent procedure costs $2,000
- Corrects many types of deformities of the nose
- Performed in a single visit, with a touch up treatment as a follow up
- Can camouflage bumps, make a nose appear smaller, and also corrects any facial imbalances or asymmetries
