The One-Stitch Nose Job can narrow the base of the nose using a single stitch under local anesthesia. It can be combined with dermal fillers to straighten the nose or tilt it. The procedure takes about twenty minutes and the results can be permanent.

Non-surgical/Liquid Nose Job
A non-surgical rhinoplasty refers to the correction of a nasal deformity using injectables (fillers) rather than surgery. It can be done in the office under local anesthesia in just under 30 minutes.
Hyaluronic acid such as Restylane®, Jevederm®, Perlane®, Lift®, or Voluma® can be used. Radiesse® which is calcium hydroxylapatite is also a good product for a liquid rhinoplasty.In a non-surgical rhinoplasty, one must ADD volume. Nose job surgery is generally subtractive in nature where cartilage is removed and bones are either broken or filed down. With humps on the nose, the deformity can be viewed 2 ways; either the hump sticks out too far, or the area above the hump doesn’t protrude enough. When we think of humps as the latter, the solution can be as simple as filling in the depression above the nose. This in turn will blend the hump into the nose without making the nose look bigger overall.The product is simply injected into the dorsum of the nose , under the skin, extending to where the nose begins to slope from the forehead.Another uses of this technique are to correct a pinched tip from prior rhinoplasty or create symmetry on the front view. Product added to the sides of the nasal tip will fill in the pinch. In cases of asymmetry, volume addition to one side of the nose will often fix the deformity.
Candidates for this procedure have a hump, a pinched nose, or some other type of nasal deformity. Collapsed noses from over-resection from a prior rhinoplasty may also benefit. Men and women who have had a rhinoplasty within the last six months may still be too swollen for this procedure.
Plan for about a one to one-and-a-half-hour visit to the Los Angeles office. Dr. Neavin will want to review your medical history and any prior nasal surgeries. Patients who have had a prior rhinoplasty generally have to wait until swelling subsides. This can range from a couple of months to up to a year, depending on the region and type of prior surgery.
During the visit, you may wish to have your nose injected the same day. Because the procedure can be performed in 30 minutes or less, this request often doesn’t need additional scheduling.
The results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are immediate. The photo below was taken immediately after injection. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty that has some unpredictable element of healing, a non-surgical rhinoplasty is visible immediately. Depending on the product, the correction can last one to two years.
Topical anesthesia will be applied to the nose. With a fine needle, the product will be injected into the deformity. The most commonly used fillers are Restylane, Juvederm, or Radiesse. For more on specific properties of fillers, please visit the “injectables” section (link).Depending on the area, tape may be applied for a couple of days to a week to hold the product in place. While this isn’t always necessary, the tape can help stabilize the product if a significant amount was injected into the glabella area (where the nose joins the forehead). After the procedure, you may go home. Pain medications can be prescribed but are not usually necessary.
Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, a liquid rhinoplasty will have minimal swelling and bruising is unlikely. Depending on the product, correction may last a year to two years.
A small needle is used for non-surgical rhinoplasty that leaves no visible scarring.
