I could not be more pleased with the results of Dr. Rivkin’s work (Botox and some fillers) – my face still shows full range of emotions and looks completely natural. I look like myself – about 7 years ago. Kairi S.
Improving Non Surgical Procedures
One of the hallmarks of cosmetic surgery is innovation–and that includes Non Surgical Nose Job innovation. By endeavoring always to bring patients high quality results while minimizing pain and discomfort, cosmetic surgeons have been able to find new and amazing ways to deliver results without sacrificing comfort. This drive towards innovation was certainly present in the development of a procedure called the non-surgical nose job. Dr. Alexander Rivkin, one of the primary drivers of this particular non-surgical innovation, developed this procedure in Los Angeles, where he noticed many patients interested in rhinoplasty, but hesitant about the pain and discomfort that come from surgery.
The primary innovation of the non-surgical nose job involved taking a product that was already on the market, with a strong reputation for safety and effectiveness, and repurposing that product for a new procedure. Dermal fillers were widely used to add volume to the face for a more youthful visage. The non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure essentially applies the same logic to the nose. By adding volume to strategic places in the nose, and by carefully sculpting that newly added volume, Dr. Rivkin and Dr. Cohen are able to give patients the nose and the proportions they’re looking for.
The Next Big Thing in Rhinoplasty
The innovation hasn’t stopped with the development of the non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure. Indeed, Dr. Rivkin has worked to continue perfecting the procedure, giving patients more options. Thanks to these innovations, patients are able to get the look they want—a look that can be temporary or virtually permanent. Innovation has also been achieved in areas of pain control and minimizing risks, especially when compared to the traditional, surgical rhinoplasty procedures that were available before non-surgical rhinoplasty was popular among the public.
There are a few key areas in which non-surgical rhinoplasty offers a significant innovative advantage over traditional, surgical procedures:
- Pain Control: Because the nose is such a sensitive organ, recovery from surgery of the nose can be incredibly painful. A non-surgical nose job procedure generally involves nothing more severe than a couple of quick injections, ensuring that patients do not have to struggle with a painful recovery.
- Non Surgical Rhinoplasty Duration: Most dermal fillers last a matter of months. Most patients, then, can expect to enjoy their nose for six months to a year without maintenance injections. However, if you like the result, there are some dermal filler options that can last for the better part of a decade.
- Minimizing Risk: Risk is inherent to plastic surgery. It’s true that modern plastic surgeons have done much to minimize that risk, but any time a scalpel is used in combination with an anesthetic, there is the risk of complications. Non Surgical Rhinoplasty minimizes these risk by removing both the scalpel and the anesthesia from the equation—meaning that non-surgical procedures are generally safer than their surgical counterparts.
The Non Surgical Nose Job Innovation Never Stops
Because innovation is the hallmark of cosmetic surgery, it’s important to note that the innovation never stops. While Dr. Rivkin and Dr. Cohen both offer the non-surgical rhinoplasty as an alternative to traditional surgical rhinoplasty, they still look for ways to improve results further, and to bring those results and techniques to other parts of the face and body.
