Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty NYC
As aesthetic medicine advances, new developments become available, including a rhinoplasty (or nose job) performed without surgery. While this may have been unimaginable in the past, the treatment is now available at New Face NY. Are you unhappy with the appearance, size, or shape of your nose? You may be a candidate for a non-surgical rhinoplasty in NYC, without the long recovery and downtime.
How Does a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Work?
While a traditional rhinoplasty involves removing excess tissue and cartilage, and sculpting the area to a more pleasing, balanced shape and size, this procedure involves the use of dermal fillers to change the shape of the nose to a more attractive look. It is an effective method to camouflage cosmetic problems such as a dorsal hump (the bump or rise in the nose structure, visible when your face is viewed in profile), resolve any irregularities or other defects in shape, or enhance the nasal tip so it is more attractive, balanced, and in harmony with your other facial features.
For those who are reluctant to go under the knife but want to boost their appearance, Dr. Westreich offers an innovative alternative in his New York office: the non-surgical nose job. Increasingly popular, this latest advance in aesthetic medicine has made a media splash and may already be on your radar.
After determining which areas of the nose to treat, the process involves injecting Juvederm to create a more pleasing profile. Juvederm is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body. This synthetic form of the acid is easily tolerated, and one of the most effective fillers for various facial flaws and conditions. Whether you are unhappy with a hump on your nose in profile, feel the slope of your nose is unattractive, or have an upturned nose you would like to change, these injections can add subtle but effective volume -- instantly creating a more pleasing profile.
Rhinoplasty vs Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
The non-invasive technique differs considerably from a traditional rhinoplasty and has its pros and cons.
- Immediately visible results, during and after the procedure
- No incisions necessary
- Fast (can be completed in under 30 minutes)
- Little to no patient discomfort during the procedure, no general anesthesia needed
- Little to no bruising or swelling
- No downtime or extended recovery period necessary
- Few risks or potential complications
- More affordable than traditional nose surgery
- Reversible with a secondary injection
- Results are temporary (last 6-12 months)
- Cannot reduce the actual size of the nose
- Cannot address functional and structural issues, such as a breathing obstructions caused by a deviated septum (see deviated nose surgery)
- Cannot only correct a subset of problems or unsatisfactory results due to a previous rhinoplasty (see revision rhinoplasty or secondary nose job)
Because a non-surgical nose job is not a permanent change, the nose’s shape can be refined in a subsequent treatment. The procedure can also be an excellent way to envision the more permanent results of a traditional rhinoplasty, which may be useful prior to committing to surgery.
What Types of Flaws can a Non-Surgical Nose Job Resolve?
While our non-surgical nose job NYC will not resolve every nose problem, it is effective for a range of flaws that impact the facial appearance. Some of the most common aesthetic issues that can be treated non-surgically include:
- Bump on bridge of nose
- Concave bridge of nose
- Upturned nose
- Droopy tip
- Deep nostril humps
Who is the idea non-surgical rhinoplasty candidate?
The ideal candidate for a non-surgical nose job is in overall good health, has realistic expectations, and does not require the removal of bone or cartilage to effectively reshape the nose. Although dermal fillers are generally well-tolerated, certain injectables may cause adverse reactions.
The non-surgical nose job is a relatively straight-forward procedure. However, the technique still requires an expert hand. Dr. Westreich, a rhinoplasty specialist with expertise in dermal fillers, frequently performs the non-surgical nose job and has gained recognition in his field. He has honed his medical and artistic craft, consistently achieving natural-looking and stunning results.
Your First Step in a Non-Surgical Nose Job
To perform the procedure, the first step is a full evaluation of your nose and face. We will determine what can be done to enhance your appearance and bring about a more pleasing balance between the nose and your other facial features. It takes the eye of an artist to understand how the features should enhance each other to create the look recognized as beauty in our culture. Dr. Westreich has an artist’s eye for balance and structure, and will carefully evaluate your condition and advise you of the most effective treatment to bring about the appearance you want. In many cases, our non-surgical nose job NYC will be the right treatment.
A 15-Minute Procedure
This procedure is very fast, typically requiring only 15 minutes to perform, and producing immediate results. To inject the Juvederm into the targeted area, Dr. Westreich uses a tiny cannula, similar to a needle, through which the Juvederm will flow. The procedure is considered pain-free, and does not involve downtime or a long recovery. No stitches, scalpel, or bandages are involved. Most patients can return to their normal activities directly after treatment. There are rarely cases that involve bruising, and swelling is minor. Technique could not be more important in getting the result you want, and this procedure should only be performed by a highly-skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon.

Use of Fractora During Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
The Fractora versatile handheld device utilizes advanced “pin-based” radio wave technology that can be used to improve the results of a non-surgical rhinoplasty. After you’ve had a non-surgical facelift, you may notice “settling” or slight shift in the appearance of your nose over time. Fractora can lift and smooth the skin on the nose, prolonging the results of your non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure.
How Fractora Works
The advanced Fractora device uses radiofrequency with small pin-like structures to penetrate and heat the skin. The wavelength of radio waves used during the procedure can permeate the top layer of skin and heat the subdermal layers of skin without damaging the surrounding tissues.
The heat energy produced by the pins in the Fractora device promote the generation of collagen to smooth and tighten the skin. Although also used in various facial zones such as cheeks, mouth, neck, and eye area, the device can also be used on the nose to correct or enhance the results of your non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Use Fractora to Enhance Your Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
If you are dissatisfied with your non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure from another clinic and would like to revise the outcome, a Fractora treatment can help. The revolutionary device can be used to lift the skin and further narrow the bridge of your nose to help you achieve the proportional, attractive nose you envisioned when undergoing the procedure.
If you had non-surgical rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Westreich some time ago and need to enhance the results, a Fractora treatment can help. Some fillers are absorbed over time, and the collagen production initiated by the device can revitalize the look of your nose. Fractora provides a non-surgical way to alter your previous rhinoplasty procedure and maintain a smooth, straight, attractive nose.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the degree of change needed. Some people will need as little as one treatment to improve the look of their nose, while others may need several treatments. The treatments are usually spaced approximately one month apart. Dr. Westreich will work with you to create a custom treatment plan appropriate for you.
Recovery & Aftercare Following Fractora
Your skin will take approximately two weeks to fully heal. During that time, you should avoid sun exposure to protect your skin. Any side effects are minor, and you will quickly be able to resume work and your other activities. Your results will begin to show as your skin tightens and produces more natural collagen, enhancing your overall facial appearance.
