Introduction to

Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non surgical rhinoplasty uses dermal filler injections to transform the overall shape of the nose. The results from these filler injections will typically wane in 18-24 months, but there is virtually no recovery time for patients. You will also be able to see your results from these injections immediately. There are a significant number of advantages to taking a non invasive, non surgical approach to your rhinoplasty.

Who is a Good Candidate for

Non Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non surgical rhinoplasty is usually a good fit for candidates who want to make small, subtle changes to the nose and who also do not want to undergo a surgical procedure. If you want to make big and bold changes to the nose, a surgical procedure may be more likely to deliver your desired final results.

If you want a smaller nose, or if you want volume removed from areas of the nose, a surgical procedure may be a better fit. However, there are some ways in which a non surgical nose job can create the illusion of a smaller nose.

You should be prepared to discuss your desired final outcome with Dr. Ogilvie, as well as your medical history, when you arrive for your consultation. Non surgical rhinoplasty procedures can be used to treat a wide variety of issues, from a shallow bridge to a drooping tip and much in between.

The Non Surgical Rhinoplasty


Non surgical rhinoplasty is a non invasive procedure that requires a few simple injections in order to achieve your desired results. No anesthetic is usually required, so a non surgical rhinoplasty can be performed right in our Chicago office.

A non surgical rhinoplasty will usually follow these basic steps:

Anesthesia — For a non surgical rhinoplasty, anesthesia is usually not required. However, a topical numbing agent may be used for patients who are particularly uncomfortable.

Injection — Dr. Ogilvie will make several injections of dermal fillers into the nose (as dictated by your desired results). These injections typically take roughly fifteen minutes or so to administer.

Recovery and


Patients will see immediate results from their dermal filler injections. Non surgical rhinoplasty is typically used to make small but noticeable changes to the nose–some patients seek to increase the size of the bridge or change the overall shape of the nose. In some cases, non surgical rhinoplasty can even correct some cases of bulging or crooked noses.

Results from most non surgical rhinoplasty procedures will last anywhere between 18-24 months, depending on the patient and on the dermal filler chosen for the procedure.
