Non-surgical minimally invasive rhinoplasty: tips and tricks from the perspective of a dermatologist

Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat. 2017 Dec;26(4):101-103. doi: 10.15570/actaapa.2017.29.


Introduction: Rhinoplasty is one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed by plastic surgeons all over the world. In recent years, a non-surgical nose job has become the preferred option for most patients and specialists. Minimally invasive techniques already result in high satisfaction rates. Moreover, patients do not need anesthesia and there is no post-operative recovery period.

Methods: Between January 2016 and January 2017, 35 patients (33 female, 2 male) that had undergone nonsurgical rhinoplasty with dermal fillers were included in the study. Clinical and demographic features of the patients, our technique, satisfaction rates, and complications were discussed.

Results: We recorded an extremely high satisfaction rate and did not observe any complications. All of the patients returned to their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure.

Conclusions: Non-surgical nose augmentation with dermal fillers is an easy, safe, and comfortable technique. It appears that dermatologists need to assume a more active role in rhinoplasty.
