Who is the ideal non surgical Rhinoplasty candidate?
This procedure is ideal for the person who does not want to undergo a traditional surgical Rhinoplasty procedure. The non surgical Rhinoplasty provides patients with enhanced results and appearance, without an invasive surgical procedure. The candidate should be someone seeking to correct mild to moderate nasal conditions, such as bumps, humps, or drooping tips.
How long does the non surgical nose job take, and what should I expect?
The procedure is also dubbed the injection Rhinoplasty and the 15 Minute Nose Job™. The procedure takes 15-30 minutes, is virtually pain-free, and has a very minimal recovery time. Typically, patients are back to work or class the same day. Dr. Rivkin, a non surgical nose surgeon, applies a numbing cream to the area, and then uses one of two safe dermal fillers, Radiesse, or Artefill, to smooth, restore, shape, and create a more attractive nose. The doctor works very closely with the patient to ensure that all areas are addressed as they desire.
What type of filler will be used by the non surgical nose surgeon?
The two fillers that Dr. Rivkin routinely uses are Radiesse and Artefill. Both are safe and have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Both are widely used as fillers to address wrinkles, bumps, and other blemishes, with results that last up to 10 years or more.
How much experience does Dr. Rivkin have, doing non surgical nose surgery?
Los Angeles-based and Yale-trained, Dr. Rivkin is the leading physician conducting non surgical Rhinoplasty. He perfected the non surgical nose job in 2004 and, since then, has trained other physicians around the country on the procedure, as well as having performed over 600 of them himself.
