In early 2004, Dr. Rivkin pioneered a revolutionary, non-invasive alternative to surgical rhinoplasty. Injection Rhinoplasty (Non Surgical Nose Job or 15 Minute Nose Job) resolves the appearance of bumps, drooping tips, and crooked noses, safely and quickly, without the risks and long, painful recovery normally associated with rhinoplasty surgery.
Over the last several years, Dr. Rivkin has performed over 2500 Non Surgical Nose Job (Non Surgical Rhinoplasty) procedures, more than anyone else in the world. He trains other physicians in the technique, making sure that his exacting standards will be maintained by his trainees.
This Asian female in her thirties had been self-conscious for many years about the appearance of her nose. From a profile view her nose was relatively small and flat and from the front her nose appeared wide. The flat and wide appearance was attributed the lack of structure in the bridge of her nose. She wanted a permanent solution to her concerns so she decided to have the Artefill non-surgical nose job. With a series of injections spaced several weeks apart Dr. Rivkin was able to build up the bridge of her nose to a degree that she was happy with. By raising the bridge her nose was given a thinner appearance and a more defined profile. She was extremely happy with the end results.
This 30 year old female patient from Los Angeles was unhappy with her small and undefined nose. She lacked definition and height in the bridge of her nose, which gave her nose a disproportionately small appearance on profile view. From the front, the lack of definition of her bridge overly emphasized her tip, making it stand out more than she wanted it to. To remedy her issues Dr. Rivkin injected Voluma, a hyaluronic acid based filler, into the bridge of her nose and slightly into the tip. This resulted in a raised bridge and a better structured, less rounded tip, which gave her nose the thinner and more defined appearance she was looking for. Her nose was now more proportional to her face and overall she gained a more balanced and proportional appearance. She was very happy with the natural looking results and she was more confident about her new appearance.
This is a young female patient who was not happy with the appearance of her nose. During her complimentary consultation with Dr. Rivkin she expressed her concerns with the short and wide look of her nose. She was happy to find out that her concerns would be easily fixed non-surgically with the use of a filler. She decided to move forward with the procedure and quickly saw a significant improvement in the shape of her nose. Dr. Rivkin used Radiesse to add volume and raise the bridge of her nose to take away the flattened appearance. He also injected into the area just below the bridge to take away the slight scoop and to smooth out her profile. She was happy with her results and the overall look of her face.
This is a 23-year-old Vietnamese patient who traveled to our Los Angeles office from San Francisco to see Dr. Rivkin. She was concerned with the low bridge and the large tip of her nose that is commonly seen in Asian women. Not wanting to undergo surgery she sought out Dr. Rivkin for his expertise in non-invasive procedures. After her initial consultation she decided to proceed with Radiesse, a temporary calcium-based filler, to improve the shape and balance of her nose. Dr. Rivkin was able to raise the bridge of her nose to correct the wide and flattened appearance. This gave her nose better proportions and caused the tip to appear less pronounced. With the subtle, yet noticeable change our patient was very happy with the outcome.
