Are you bothered by a bump on your nose or do you wonder if a differently shaped nose would better highlight your other facial features? Rhinoplasty is a popular surgical procedure to reshape the nose, but it isn’t the right choice for everyone. Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also referred to as liquid rhinoplasty or nose fillers, can give you the experience of a reshaped nose without the commitment of surgery. For patients considering surgical rhinoplasty in the future, a non-surgical rhinoplasty with dermal fillers can be an intermediate step. Non-surgical rhinoplasty at Elle Aesthetic Arts in Ashburn, VA can allow you to achieve a nose that inspires confidence—in less than 30 minutes with no incisions and no downtime.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty With Fillers—How it Works
Non-surgical rhinoplasty reshapes the nose with strategically placed injections that can smooth away bumps or asymmetries. While this procedure cannot deliver the kind of size reduction or some of the significant changes that can be achieved with surgical rhinoplasty, nose reshaping with dermal fillers can:
- Camouflage a dorsal hump or uneven profile
- Lift or otherwise improve the appearance of the nasal tip
- Add height to the bridge of the nose
- Correct asymmetry
- Refine the overall appearance of the nose
Preparing for Your Procedure
During your consultation appointment with Dr. Lickstein, he will take the time to understand your aesthetic goals before explaining your treatment options. Minimal prep is required for this non-surgical procedure and treatment is offered the same day as your consultation.
What to Expect During Your Procedure
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed in-office with dermal filler injections and typically takes less than 30 minutes. Dr. Lickstein will confirm your treatment plan with you, including the type of filler that will best meet your needs. He will then apply a numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the procedure. You may feel a mild pinch or sensation of pressure while he places the injections. An ice pack can be applied after your procedure to minimize swelling.
Recovery After Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
You can expect some mild swelling or redness after the procedure, but no downtime is required. Any temporary side effects will resolve within a day or two and most patients resume their regular activities right away.

Frequently Asked Questions About Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Can non-surgical rhinoplasty make my nose smaller?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot reduce the actual size of the nose. However, sometimes what is perceived as a “large nose” is actually just a nose with some asymmetry, a hump, or a drooping nasal tip—all of which may be improved by non-surgical rhinoplasty.
How long do non-surgical rhinoplasty results last?
Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, non-surgical rhinoplasty is not permanent. Your individual results may vary based on a number of factors, including the choice of filler, but many patients enjoy results up to one year.
Are there any risks involved with non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Any procedure involved some risk, but serious complications involved in non-surgical dermal filler procedures are very uncommon.1
Am I a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an option for many people who would like to refine or reshape their nose.
