Why choose Dr. Stella for a non-surgical nose job?

In the right hands, dermal fillers create remarkable results that also look natural and subtle. Dr. Stella's advanced training in facial plastic surgery includes being board certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery. Her experience with injectable treatments is extensive. Her knowledge of fillers, and her skill in using them, resulted in Dr. Stella serving on the teaching faculty for Allergan, Medicis, and Palette aesthetic courses, and she has been training other doctors and nurses how to administer fillers for years.

Am I a candidate for a non-surgical rhinoplasty?

Patients with a number of different cosmetic concerns make good candidates for a non-surgical nose job, and the procedure is especially popular among Asian patients, who often want a more defined nasal bridge or a more pronounced tip. Here are some of the many things a non-surgical nose job can do:

  • Augment the bridge, or dorsum
  • Create symmetry and fill in concave areas of the nose
  • Enhance the tip by improving definition or smoothing an upturned nose
  • Smooth, or mask, a nasal hump

It's also a good procedure if you're interested in surgical rhinoplasty but want to get a sense of the possible improvements before making a decision. If you want to reduce the size of your nose or are considering nose surgery because nasal obstruction is making it difficult to breathe, you should choose surgical rhinoplasty.

What are the benefits of using fillers for rhinoplasty?

Dr. Stella prefers using hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® for her Seattle non-surgical rhinoplasty patients. These fillers provide predictable, long-lasting results and are commonly used in other areas of the face, as well. The benefits of using fillers to improve the appearance of your nose are many:

  • The changes are temporary. Fillers such as Restylane and JUVÉDERM last between 6 and 12 months before being gradually absorbed by the body.
  • In the hands of an experienced provider such as Dr. Stella, fillers can be injected with precision, resulting in specific, detailed improvements that might not be possible with surgery.
  • There is no downtime following a non-surgical rhinoplasty. Nose surgery usually produces swelling that takes weeks to diminish, and the full results of a surgical nose job may not be apparent for up to a year due to residual swelling. The results of a non-surgical procedure are seen within days.
  • General anesthesia isn't used, so you are awake during the procedure.

Because the changes are temporary, you'll need to return periodically for touch-up treatments to maintain your results.
