Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty
Improving Your Results
Westside Aesthetics is located in the Brentwood area of the busy and beautiful city of Los Angeles. As the metropolitan capital of the West Coast, residents here have no time to waste. Many Los Angelenos want to avoid the risk and long downtime associated with cosmetic surgery and Dr. Alexander Rivkin has designed the procedures at Westside Aesthetics to fit this busy lifestyle. As the inventor of Non Surgical Rhinoplasty (Non Surgical Nose Job), Dr. Rivkin is an international expert in the procedure. He provides patients with nose reshaping similar to what is seen in traditional rhinoplasty, but without the risks and weeks of recovery involved with invasive surgery.
Correcting the Results of a Surgical Rhinoplasty
The nose is a delicate aesthetic feature with important physiologic functions. Repeated surgical procedures can be dangerous and could result in irreversible and catastrophic consequences. If your primary rhinoplasty operation resulted in cosmetic flaws that you would like addressed, contact Dr. Rivkin to see what your options are. There are a variety of approaches that he can take to restore the look of your nose without intruding upon its subtle architecture.
If the results of your first (primary) rhinoplasty surgery are less than ideal, there are several options you can take to reshape your nose. Most patients are hesitant about returning to a plastic surgeon and going under the knife again. They understand that a revision rhinoplasty surgery is significantly riskier and the chances of success are much less than with the primary procedure. The recovery process is, on average, longer and the cost is about double that of the initial procedure. After doing their research, many have decided that Non-Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty is their best option, and Dr. Rivkin is here to guide you through the process.
Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty
Non-surgical revision rhinoplasty requires a detailed consultation in the same manner as primary Non Surgical Rhinoplasty. As with primary Non Surgical Rhinoplasty, the procedure does not involve incisions. All of Dr. Rivkin’s contour adjustments are done using fine needles and a variety of dermal fillers. The obvious restriction of this approach is that the structural anatomy of the nose cannot be altered. Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty cannot physically reduce a bump or make a large tip smaller. However, it is the perfect procedure for problems like post surgical dorsal asymmetry (where the bridge of the nose is crooked because scar tissue or over-resection has caused one side of the dorsal cartilage to buckle or shift off center) or polybeak deformity (where too much was resected from the bridge during a hump removal surgery, causing the bottom third of the nose to become disproportionately prominent) or nasal tip asymmetry (where post surgical scarring has caused indentations and shifting of the cartilage of the nose). A nose with these kinds of irregularities can look “done” and unnatural. Non Surgical Rhinoplasty can make a nose like this look perfectly natural in 15 minutes. It is not uncommon that after healing from the first rhinoplasty surgery, there will be some noticeable grooves or depressions around the nose. Instead of undergoing surgery to correct this and risk more aesthetic blemishes, a simple dermal filler can fix the problem easily and, if Bellafill is used, permanently.
Most of the temporary dermal fillers used today contain derivatives of proteins found naturally in the body, enhanced for prolonged durability. Most of today’s fillers do not use animal products and there is no requirement for allergy testing with any filler except for the permanent filler Bellafill (this filler has a purified animal collagen as one of the ingredients, but allergy to this component is extremely rare).
Results of the Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty procedure can be seen immediately. The procedure involves minimal if any discomfort, hence topical anesthetic cream is almost always sufficient for pain control. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after treatment and any mild swelling or bruising resolves within a couple of days.
