It's not the best option if significant structural problems need to be addressed, but nonsurgical rhinoplasty offers a quick and easy fix for minor imperfections.

However, as with any surgical procedure, traditional rhinoplasty comes with inherent risks. While rare, bleeding, infection, complications from anesthesia and nasal blockages can occur.
Thankfully, Dr. Kevin Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon in Orange County at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, specializes in nonsurgical rhinoplasty. The procedure uses safe and effective dermal fillers to correct minor aesthetic issues with a patient's nose.
"Patients who aren't pleased with the appearance of their noses, but don't want to undergo a surgical procedure, will benefit from this approach," Dr. Kevin Sadati said. "It's not the best option if significant structural problems need to be addressed, but nonsurgical rhinoplasty offers a quick and easy fix for minor imperfections."
Dr. Kevin Sadati is a highly experienced cosmetic surgeon who has completed thousands of procedures during the past decade. His keen eye for facial harmony and skill as a sculptor and artist allow him to create balanced, natural-looking results for each of his many patients. His techniques have been published in highly regarded academic journals, and he has served as a presenter at several professional conferences.
During a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, Dr. Kevin Sadati uses one of two injectable dermal fillers - RADIESSE or Restylane - to reduce the appearance of bumps or make a curved nose appear straighter. This technique can also help a saddle nose to look more straight and blend in with the rest of facial structures.
RADIESSE and Restylane have each been approved the Food and Drug Administration to improve the contours of patients' nose. Radiesse is made of Calcium Hydroxyl Apatite: A substance compatible with living systems that is identical in composition to the mineral portion of teeth and bone and can last about 2 years. Restylane is synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that attracts water molecules, thus making skin appear fuller and more voluminous. These products can also be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines elsewhere on the face and can last up to one year.
While dermal fillers offer patients an effective way to improve the appearance of their noses without an expensive, invasive surgery, there is a downside. The fillers aren't permanent, and the process will need to be repeated every few months. Restylane usually lasts about one year, while RADIESSE lasts around two years.
"It's important patients realize that nonsurgical rhinoplasty doesn't provide a permanent change like a traditional surgical nose job. The procedure will have to be repeated to maintain the appearance," Dr. Kevin Sadati said. "However, the process is relatively painless, quick and comes with no downtime. Patients can usually return to their normal routine immediately after receiving the injections."
