The nose is one of our most prominent facial features. It affects the aesthetics of the entire face, influencing facial balance and attractiveness. A nose that is too large or small, crooked, or otherwise out of proportion with the other facial features can negatively impact our facial aesthetics.

While surgery was once the only option for augmentation of the nose, recent advances have allowed for non-surgical rhinoplasty – when performed by an expert specialist. Dr. Nik Rana has over a decade of experience working exclusively on the face and nose, fine tuning his technique for non-surgical rhinoplasty in McKinney, TX to deliver customizable results for each and every patient.

What is non-surgical rhinoplasty?

Some patients who require minor revisions can achieve an excellent result without undergoing surgery. The custom application of dermal fillers can subtly raise the nose tip, smooth a minor hump, or create a more attractive nose tip if it has depressions or has a pinched look.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

The rhinoplasty procedure offers patients many potential benefits, which include improved appearance and function of the nose along with improved self-esteem.

Patients can expect to receive subtle or dramatic aesthetic improvements to the nose based on their desires. Because it is so versatile, the procedure offers custom results that can maintain a very natural facial appearance.

A skillfully performed procedure, such as Dr. Rana’s non-surgical rhinoplasty in McKinney, TX, ensures the focus of your face no longer remains your nose and becomes what its true role should be, an accent piece.

Aside from the aesthetic benefits of a non-surgical rhinoplasty, the procedure often provides psychological benefits as well. It can help patients gain confidence and self-esteem, feeling more open and comfortable in social situations and in photographs.

Recovering from Non-surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty at our McKinney office requires no downtime. Patients are encouraged to keep their head elevated for several hours after the procedure and to avoid applying makeup or touching the area for a brief time. 

Minor bruising and some redness is common and may create some social limitations. Still, most patients return to work immediately after the procedure and perform low-level activities on the same day.

FAQ

What kinds of cosmetic concerns can rhinoplasty address?

Primary rhinoplasty is an extremely versatile procedure that can address a wide range of aesthetic issues. We tailor each procedure to help each patient reach his or her individual goals. Dr. Rana routinely performs rhinoplasties in Mckinney, TX to correct cosmetic concerns such as:

  • Droopy tip
  • Saddle nose
  • Over-Projected Nose
  • Deviated Septum
  • Turned Up Nose
  • African American nose
  • Revision Rhinoplasty
  • Wide Nose
  • Bulbous Tip
  • Twisted Nose
  • Ethnic Nose

Can teenagers get rhinoplasty?

The nose is slow to mature. Maturity typically occurs around age 15-16 in girls and 16-17 in boys. Sometimes teens do get rhinoplasty surgery with parental permission, but it is important to wait until the nose has matured. If performed before this point, the nose could become distorted due to the natural changes caused by the growth process.

What can be done if the rhinoplasty results don’t turn out as expected?

Sometimes, rhinoplasty patients are disappointed by their results. This is sometimes legitimate, due to complications or other issues, but it can also be due to unrealistic expectations or just simply needing time to adjust to the new look. Revision rhinoplasty can be performed after 12 months if the results are still not satisfactory, but this procedure is even more difficult than primary rhinoplasty and should not be taken lightly.

Does the nose have to be broken during rhinoplasty surgery?

Many patients are worried that their nose will have to be broken during rhinoplasty. In reality, this process is nothing like an accidental break—the bones are instead cut and re-set for optimal positioning, function, and aesthetics. This process is quite common and shouldn’t cause any additional recovery time or discomfort.

Will I need to have my nose packed after rhinoplasty surgery?

These days, most surgeons have done away with nasal packing for rhinoplasty since it’s not needed anymore. Modern nasal surgery is safer and more comfortable than ever!

Where does the cartilage grafts for rhinoplasty come from?

In most cases, the cartilage will be taken from the nasal septum and shaped for use during rhinoplasty. However, if there is an insufficient quantity of cartilage in the septum, cartilage from the ear or rib may be used instead.

Will there be any scarring after rhinoplasty?

Depending on the technique used, external incisions are sometimes not needed, and scarring is not visible. Even when the incision is made externally, such as on the columella, the scar typically fades very well and is nearly undetectable.

What should I look for in a surgeon for rhinoplasty surgery?

Only an expert facial plastic surgeon should perform cosmetic rhinoplasty procedures. It is an extremely complex surgery requiring a great deal of artistry, skill, and expertise. It’s not something you want to take chances on. Choose your plastic surgeon carefully, as they will be the biggest factor in the success of your procedure.
