15-Minute Non-surgical Eyelift

Non-Surgical Nose, Cheeks And Chin Augmentation

The 15-minute Nose Job

Many individuals are concerned about the contour or imperfections of their noses. For this reason, a surgical nose job, known as a rhinoplasty, is the third most popular cosmetic surgical procedure.

However the number of rhinoplasty procedures performed has been declining partly because of a non surgical rhinoplasty alternative developed by a small group of leading physicians. While surgery may still be the best option for many individuals, the non surgical nose job alternative is a viable option for a large number of rhinoplasty candidates.

Non Surgical Nose Contouring

The procedure is sometimes called the 15 minute nose job because it typically takes between 10 and 15 minutes. In some cases, you may hear the procedure called an injection rhinoplasty or injection nose job becaue the procedure involves injecting an advanced dermal fifller such as Juvederm® and Aquamid® to fill in depressions, smooth out sharp angles, and perhaps to change the angle of the tip of the nose. The 10 minute non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure requires no sedation, and patients are back to most normal routines following the 10 or 15 minute non-surgical nose job.

The procedure is designed to restore the desired facial symmetry and to make the nose contour more appealing. Since you are awake, you may interact with the physician with the goal of achieving your desired results.

Side effects may include some bruising or swelling at the treatment site, which typically subside quickly; however it is not uncommon for there to be almost no bruising and minimal swelling. Please consult your physician for a complete list of potential side effects. Depending upon the products chosen, results may last from 6 months to several years.

Non Surgical Receeding Chin Contouring

A weak chin can play an important role in diminishing a person’s overall appearance.

If a receding chin is accompanied by jowls, then lifting the jowls will give the lower face better balance, diminishing the appearance of a weak or under formed chin. One method to subtly help the appearance of a weak chin is to use liquid face lift products such as Sculptra®, Juvederm® Ultra or Voluma® on the areas of the cheek bones or sub malar region below the cheek bones on the flat plane of the face (see Cheek Contouring). This will add volume and gently lift the jowls up and away from the chin. Not only do the jowls become less prominent and less noticeable, but the chin appears to stand out more as a result.

Another method some physicians are using to augment a weak chin is to place either Aquamid® like Polyacrylamide Gel or bulking liquid face lift products, such as Voluma, directly on the chin area. This method can help rebuild the prominence of the chin.

For persons considering a chin implant, one or both of these methods might provide enough noticeable improvement to forgo surgery.

Non Surgical Upper Cheek Contouring

Cheek implants are one of the top 20 cosmetic surgical procedures. The number is declining, however, because of the non surgical alternative. With advanced medical techniques, some patients can regain enough of their original natural, cheek lines to forgo surgery.

The zygomatic or malar area of the cheeks is the area of the high cheek bone below the rims of the eyes that extends out to the sides of the face. The cheek bone area is a key treatment zone for many individuals who are seeking a lift in one of several aspects of the face. Over time, skeletal changes, fat loss and collagen depletion will flatten the malar area of the cheeks. This can accentuate sagging in many areas of the face like the hollows under the eyes, the jowls and a downward turn of the lips.

Correction of the cheek area with dermal filler products such as Voluma®, Sculptra® and Juvederm® can effect a subtle, yet dramatic, improvement in the appearance of an aging face. The technique of the medical practitioner is very important in creating a natural lift. Medical practitioners typically cross thread the liquid face lift products in the deep dermis or subdermal area of the cheek bone region of the face.

Depending upon the facial characteristics of the patient and personal goals, physicians can give the cheeks a smooth curve or a more defined ‘apple’ effect. Patients desiring more of an apple-type cheek can ask for additional filler in the upper portion of the cheek bone area.
