Nose Filler

Surgical rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is one of the top cosmetic procedures in the U.S. but the surgery-aspect deters many from changing that part of their face. Now there's a new, non-surgical way to improve the nose. When it comes to noses, doctors can now give patients a new look in just fifteen minutes.

The results from the 15-minute nose job will last for about a year. At that point, you can get a touch-up. When it comes to noses, doctors can now give patients a new look in just fifteen minutes "the non-surgical 15-minute nose job is a procedure where we can change the shape of someone's nose without surgery."

Instead of a scalpel, he uses a needle and the filler material, radiesse, "it's made up of calcium hydroxylapatite crystals, which is similar to bone and teeth mineral. So as such, the consistency of the material is very similar to the consistency of your nose."

Michelle Dean came to Dr. Rokhsar before her wedding because she wasn't sold on a surgical approach. "I was always afraid that I wouldn't necessarily look like myself and again I didn't want to look back at my wedding pictures and say, who, you know, who was that?"

In Michelle's Case, she wanted to mask a bump on the bridge of her nose. So Dr. Rokhsar basically just injected here and a little bit here towards the tip of my nose, and now I have a pretty streamlined nose."

It only takes a tiny amount of the filler to even out imperfections, "it's important to place it where you want to place it, so a millimeter here and there can actually make a difference."

Adding radiesse should seemingly enlarge the nose, the perception is different, "by restoring symmetry, by making a more proportional nose, it can make someone's nose smaller."

The results from the 15-minute nose job will last for about a year, at that point, you can get a touch-up.
