About Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty
Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Geoffrey Keyes can reshape your nose, but it does not always require surgery. With nonsurgical rhinoplasty with dermal fillers, Dr. Keyes can inject fillers for subtle changes to add height, projection, to straighten a curvature, or fill in an imperfection like a scar or birth defect. At Geoffrey R. Keyes. M.D., F.A.C.S. in Los Angeles, CA, we provide rhinoplasty consultations and injectable filler injections with the family of medical-grade fillers and products by Juvéderm® and Restylane®. Noninvasive procedures continue to grow by leaps and bounds as more and more patients choose to forgo major surgery. While these procedures are aimed at shaping the face and eliminating wrinkles, fillers are also finding success in treating problem areas on the nose. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a quick and easy way to get a great looking appearance without having surgery. Dr. Keyes is highly trained in the use of cosmetic injectable fillers for the nose while maintaining the highest levels of safety.
The benefits of filler injections to help fix problem areas of the nose gives fantastic results, allowing you to put off rhinoplasty (for now or altogether), and get back to living your life. Call and schedule a consultation to privately discuss this matter with Dr. Keyes in our Los Angeles, CA office.
"I chose Dr. Keyes after looking for the best plastic surgeon in California for my daughter’s rhinoplasty. From the very first appointment, I felt she was in the right hands. He showed us exactly what he was going to do and what we could expect and sure enough, that’s what he delivered. She had very little pain and her nose looks amazing. I’m so glad we selected Dr. Keyes and Kimberley to care for my daughter. I highly recommend Dr. Keyes and staff!"- M.G. / Google / Jun 14, 2019
"Finding Dr. Keyes was fate. After having one of the worst rhinoplasty consultations from a top plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills (that quoted me an obscene amount),I was kind of unmotivated and scared to keep looking. Out of nowhere, Dr. Keyes showed up at my workplace. I remember thinking how kind and welcoming he was in our interaction. When I found out he was a plastic surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty I knew this was meant to be! He answered all my questions right then and there and told me to call his surgical assistant and manager, Kimberley, and let me tell you...Kimberley is AMAZING!!! Not only did Kimberley answer the phone immediately with the most comforting voice but she scheduled a consultation based on what worked best for my schedule. The consultation was so easy. I didn't even have to wait. They brought me in the room, took photos of my nose and next thing I know Dr. Keyes was in the room showing me what my nose could look like. He listened to what I had to say, what I was self conscious about, and really incorporated me into the treatment and what I could get out of it. Dr. Keyes and Kimberley made me feel welcome, comfortable, excited, and confident about my decision on getting my nose done. Scheduling my surgery was crazy because of my schedule at school and work. Kimberley always answered my calls and answered my concerns about rescheduling my surgery which made it very convenient for me. Surgery day was nerve wracking but exciting. The anesthesiology nurse even called me a few days before to make sure I was aware of the process and what would happen, addressed my concerns about surgery, and eased my nerves. Dr. Keyes, Kimberley, and all the nurses made sure I was okay, talked me through the process, and kept me updated on what was happening next. Next thing I know, I was waking up with Dr. Keyes and Kimberley by my side. They called that night to make sure I was okay and scheduled a time for me to come in the next day.From the time I woke up from surgery, I had barely any pain! Besides the swelling and bruising(which is expected), recover was so easy. I was up and about within a few days. The bruising and swelling went down within 5 to 7 days but that's patient specific.When I finally got my cast off, I couldn't believe how amazing my nose looked! I couldn't help but cry my eyes out. It was just what I wanted for sooo long. To this day, I still look at myself in the mirror and get all giddy inside. The best part is how NATURAL it turned out. I still look like ME and I LOVE it. People that knew me before the surgery just look at me and tell me something as changed but they can't pinpoint it. If you are looking for a natural looking nose that compliments your face and who you are as a person then Dr. Keyes is your guy!I have never felt so confident and beautiful in my life. I owe it all to Dr. Keyes and Kimberley!!!"- L.F. / Google / Jun 14, 2019
"Dr. Keyes and Kimberley are amazing! They treated me with respect and provided incredible care before and after surgery. I am 3 weeks post op from rhinoplasty surgery. The swelling has gone down tremendously and will continue to do so. I am thrilled with how it looks so far and I know it’ll only get better!"- A.W. / Google / May 22, 2019
"I have been a patient of Dr Keyes for over 17 years now and I highly recommend Dr Keyes. Over that period of time I have had breast augmentation, brow and lid lifts, nose job, lipo and botox treatments. I have been completely satisfied with the results and have always received professional and caring service from Dr Keyes, Kimberly, and staff. I recommended Dr Keyes to a college friend of mine years ago and she is also very happy with her breast augmentation from Dr Keyes. Unlike some cosmetic surgery offices, Dr Keyes will not comment on a body part unless YOU ask first. Check out his impressive credentials and go visit him for a consultation !"- I.G. / Google / May 22, 2019
"After interviewing three other Doctors for my girlfriends augmentation, we decided to go with Dr.Keyes. From his office, to his staff, Kimberley is amazing, we felt comfortable from the get go. We always felt he cared about us as people and the surgery was a marvelous success, he is a talented sculpture and he had had us following up with visits for months now just to make sure the healing is going along as it should. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!"- D.S. / Yelp / Feb 26, 2019
Not every nose has an aesthetic flaw that requires surgery. You are a good candidate for a nonsurgical rhinoplasty if you want to reshape your nose without surgery or have:
- A need for a height increase for your nose
- A nasal hump that needs
- A curvature that can be straightened out with the placement of a filler
- A desire for the appearance of an extension in the projection of your nasal tip or to narrow the tip
- A few minor depressions or irregularities that can be smoothed out with a filler
With these kinds of minor changes, nonsurgical rhinoplasty can be an appropriate treatment.
Once you have had a consultation with Dr. Keyes, he will perform the dermal filler injections in his private practice in Los Angeles, CA for your cosmetic issue.
Common Cosmetic Strategies
- Nasal Hump
If your nasal hump is too large to be transformed with fillers, then Dr. Keyes may recommend that you have surgery to correct this abnormality. Otherwise, you may qualify for injections of a dermal filler on both sides of the hump to even out the scooped nasal top.
- Shallow Nasal Height
When the nasal bones are shallow and the tips are wide, you do have an opportunity to have volume replaced with fillers. For more height in your nasal bones, Dr. Keyes will place an injection of a dermal filler into the nasal bone, over the nasal tip cartilage for definition, and reduce the appearance of a bulbous tip.
- Bulbous Nasal Tip
If you have a bulbous tip on the end of your nose, this is caused by a widened and/or separated nasal tip cartilage. Dr. Keyes can inject a dermal filler to create the optical illusion that your nasal tip has more projection, yet still narrow.
- Cartilage Warping and Irregularities
To camouflage cartilage imperfections (such as warming and other irregularities), Dr. Keyes can inject a filler as a solution. The cartilage can be twisted, bent, or appear sharp. If the cartilage is twisted, bent, or sharp then it can often be seen through the skin.
What to Expect
After your series of injections with your chosen dermal filler, your nasal features may be red, tender, swollen, or slightly bruised. These are all normal and will go away within a few days. You will be free to go about your day once you leave our office. You may also want to schedule a follow-up injection session as Dr. Keyes recommends (most patients visit 1 – 2 times per year for touch-ups based on the product used and how fast your body metabolizes the filler). If you have questions at any time after your treatment, please call our office for assistance.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a nonsurgical nose job cost?
The cost of a nonsurgical rhinoplasty will vary from person to person as each case is different. Some patients require more fillers than others depending on their specific cosmetic goals. During your initial consultation, our cosmetic team will be able to discuss the exact cost of your unique treatment plan in detail.
What filler is most commonly used for a nonsurgical nose job?
The most common fillers we use for nonsurgical nose jobs are Juvéderm or Restylane. These are both hyaluronic acid gels that are soft and tissue like. Both are FDA approved for nonsurgical rhinoplasty and are a safe way to get the results you want without surgery. These gels can even be dissolved if you are not satisfied with the procedure.
How long does a nonsurgical nose job last?
The longevity of your results will be dependent on the type of fillers used and your unique biology. With Juvéderm, results can last up to two years. However, this is not always the case for every patient. Some patients may need touch-ups at month 9 – 10.
When are results visible?
Although results can be seen almost immediately, optimal results will occur after 2 – 4 weeks. You will have some minor swelling, redness, and bruising in the area that may take a few days to fade away. We advise that you have a cold compress and over-the-counter pain relievers available and on hand to reduce these after effects.
After the procedure, there is some minor swelling and redness that may take a few days to disappear. These symptoms can be eased with a cold compress and over-the-counter medication.
