Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Alternatives
Patients often assume they need to undergo rhinoplasty, a surgical treatment, in order to change the appearance of their nose.
While a traditional rhinoplasty may be necessary to achieve certain goals, simpler modifications can be achieved with non-surgical care.
The non-surgical rhinoplasty alternatives offered at our office in Darien, CT, can make a significant difference in your appearance...
What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Many patients think that plastic surgery is the only way to change the appearance of their nose. However, if you have minor issues that can be addressed without a surgical nose job, Dr. Fredric Newman may recommend using injectable dermal fillers, a non-surgical alternative.
In some cases, dermal fillers can balance your facial features as effectively as surgical rhinoplasty.
Benefits of Non-Invasive Alternatives to Rhinoplasty
Because this rhinoplasty method uses injections, significant cosmetic improvements can be achieved with little to no pain. Patients may feel some minor discomfort at the time of injection, but this fades immediately.
A nose job with dermal fillers avoids the need for general anesthesia, side effects such as bruising, and the risks of surgery. Further, patients don't have to wait weeks to fully recover and can generally return to work the next day.
Because the results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are not permanent, you can decide to stop undergoing treatment or safely undergo re-treatment. Periodic retreatment allows you to enhance your nose and other features as you age.
Quick Treatment and Results
Many patients who want subtle adjustments or refinements can benefit from a non-surgical nose job because it is a simple procedure that takes less than an hour in our Darien office and provides virtually instant results.

How Are Dermal Fillers Used to Shape the Nose?
Non-surgical treatment cannot reduce the size of the nose or correct functional issues, but it can be very effective in improving the shape and contours of the nose. Because of this, many patients believe that the nose will look bigger if injected with fillers. However, they are often surprised to find that an even, more symmetrical nose enhanced with injectables can actually appear smaller, complementing your other features. Dr. Newman is able to meticulously alter specific areas of the nose to create desired results. Fillers can:
- Build up a flat or low nasal bridge
- Reshape a crooked tip
- Fill a depressed area
- Improve nostril size
- Create more symmetry
- Conceal the effects of injuries to the nose
- Address results from previous treatment
Which Treatment Is Right for Me?
If you want to make subtle improvements to your nose or want to achieve a symmetrical nose without undergoing surgery, non-surgical alternatives to rhinoplasty may be suitable for you. For patients who want to address small issues such as unevenness, or patients who have been left with small imperfections after an injury or previous surgery, Dr. Newman can recommend a non-surgical alternative to rhinoplasty using injectable dermal fillers at our Fairfield County office. Patients should bear in mind that using facial fillers is only a temporary solution.
Surgical rhinoplasty is often a better recommendation for adults who want a dramatic, permanent change to the contours and size of the nose. Depending on your facial features, Dr. Newman may recommend ethnic rhinoplasty to achieve your aesthetic goals. You can depend on Dr. Newman to conduct a careful analysis of your nose, the underlying nasal structure, and your goals in order to determine if a nose job with or without surgery will truly offer you the greatest benefits. He will also decide whether the open or closed technique is best suited to your needs.
