In the past, there have been patients who only require small adjustments to their nose in order to achieve the results that they want, but the only option has been a surgical rhinoplasty procedure. Now, thanks to state-of-the-art technology, patients who want minor adjustments done have the option of non-surgical procedures. Dr. Kevin Sadati, of Nose Job Recovery, is now utilizing two of the newest dermal-fillers on the market, RADIESSE and Restylane. Patients at his Newport Beach practice have been pleased with the results thus far, and this procedure is becoming more and more popular.
Essentially, Restylane and RADIESSE are dermal-fillers. This means that the surgeon will utilize one or the other during an injectable rhinoplasty. Injecting these fillers into the nose allows the surgeon to shape and augment the nose in order to provide the results that the patient is looking for out of the procedure. There are a few differences between the two fillers, but the biggest difference lies in how long the results last for the patients. Restylane is a popular choice in Orange County, as it is effective and efficient. Patients can have the surgeon inject Restylane into their nose, reshape a certain portion, and continue on to work immediately after the procedure is complete. However, Restylane is not known for being especially long-lasting. Results last typically a few months, and patients often have to return to keep up the results.
RADIESSE is also considered a short-term solution, but the results do last a little bit longer. Patients enjoy the surgeon using this product because it is still quick and easy, but they likely will not have to return to the surgeon’s office for several months. On average, Dr. Sadati sees his non-surgical rhinoplasty patients every 9 months. During these visits, Dr. Sadati will touch up their nose in order to maintain the results that were provided with the initial procedure.
Patients who are looking for more permanent results need to understand that the only way to achieve that is through a traditional surgical rhinoplasty procedure. Patients who are unhappy with their appearance and are considering improvements to their nose should set up a consultation with Dr. Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon. Together, the patient and the doctor can discuss the various surgical and non-surgical options available, and ultimately decide what will work best for that particular patient. Everyone is different and willing to take different measures to improve their appearance. Patients should recognize though that no matter which type of rhinoplasty procedure they choose, Dr. Sadati will ensure that he provides natural-looking results that improve the appearance of the entire face. He is highly-skilled, and is able to meet these goals either through surgical or non-surgical techniques.
