Correcting even minor deformities of the nose normally means spending an hour or several hours in surgery, waking up to two black eyes, and facing months of swelling and pain, not to mention results that can take a year or more to become visible.
Dr. Rivkin has pioneered a revolutionary, non-invasive alternative to surgical rhinoplasty. By using injectable fillers, Dr. Rivkin can correct the appearance of bumps, drooping tips, and crooked noses, safely and quickly without the risks and long, painful recovery normally associated with a nose job.
A topical numbing cream is applied to the top of the nose. Restylane, Radiesse or Artefill (according to your preference) is injected to camouflage imperfections by filling depressions and creating an even plane. This restores symmetry and makes your nose appear smaller (by blending in to the rest of your face) and more attractive. During the procedure you will have the opportunity to look at yourself in a mirror and see the results as they happen. You have complete control over the results of the procedure.
The Non Surgical Nose Job procedure does not usually cause bruising or swelling, and there is no recovery period. The results of this procedure last 10 months to a year if Radiesse is used, six to eight months with Restylane and are permanent when Dr. Rivkin uses Artefill.
