While a rhinoplasty can make an excellent choice for those looking to reshape or resize the nose, not everyone is ready to commit to the cost, recovery, and potential complications that are associated with nasal surgery. Luckily, it is often possible to achieve the same smooth, contoured results without an invasive operation. The nonsurgical rhinoplasty from Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery enhances the shape of the nose, disguising imperfections, to better balance facial features and improve the appearance.
The Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty Can
- Smooth humps or bumps on the nasal bridge
- Straighten a ‘crooked’ nose
- Improve definition on a flat or wide nose
- Add fullness and shape on a narrow nose
- Lift and highlight a small nasal tip
- Disguise a misshapen or bulbous nasal tip
The nonsurgical rhinoplasty from Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery utilizes soft tissue fillers, such as Restylane Silk, Radiesse, and Juvederm, to meticulously add volume and fullness to nasal tissues. The cutting-edge technique can be useful in improving the appearance of a nose that is misshapen, due to either genetics or trauma, even correcting issues that are the result of a previous rhinoplasty procedure. By carefully applying a series of injections with a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, Dr. Paul Vitenas can improve the contour of the nasal bridge, straightening and highlighting the nose’ shape.
The ideal candidate for a nonsurgical rhinoplasty will be in overall good health, understand the dermal filler treatment process, and hold realistic expectations for their final results. While Dr. Vitenas’ technique is excellent for those looking for mild to moderate correction, the nonsurgical rhinoplasty is not for everyone. Before the procedure, a complimentary consultation appointment will be scheduled. At this time, Dr. Vitenas will perform an in-depth examination of the nasal anatomy and discuss the desired aesthetic results, determining if a nonsurgical rhinoplasty is the right technique for an individual patient.
Each nonsurgical rhinoplasty will be performed in a private treatment room, normally taking less than 30 minutes. Treatment with fillers is not considered painful, and is generally well-tolerated by most patients. However, for additional comfort, Dr. Vitenas may also add a topical numbing cream. No downtime is required after a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, getting patients back to their normal routine immediately. Although side-effects are mild, the nose may be mildly swollen, red, and tender for a few days. Bruising is also common. More serious complications, such as infection or nerve damage, are rare.
Dr. Vitenas combines close to 30 years of plastic surgery experience, with extensive training in state-of-the-art noninvasive techniques, to provide patients with the safest and most rewarding results available.

Am I a good candidate for the nonsurgical rhinoplasty technique?
Anyone in generally good health, who is unhappy with the shape or contour of the nose, yet not ready to commit to a surgical procedure, may make a good candidate for nonsurgical rhinoplasty. Potential patients should understand the filler treatment and hold realistic expectations for their results.
Where is the nonsurgical rhinoplasty performed?
Dr. Vitenas will perform his nonsurgical rhinoplasty in a comfortable, private treatment room at Houston’s Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery.
Is a nonsurgical rhinoplasty painful?
Most patients find their nonsurgical rhinoplasty easily manageable, with little to no pain. Each injection, however, may result in pressure or a pinching sensation. Additionally, many dermal fillers are premixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which numbs the treatment area with every injection.
Will anesthesia be used with my nonsurgical rhinoplasty?
With a noninvasive, nonsurgical rhinoplasty, there is no need for general anesthesia. To ensure total comfort, Dr. Vitenas can add a local anesthetic or a topical numbing cream.
How does Dr. Vitenas perform a nonsurgical rhinoplasty?
Dr. Vitenas will use a very thin needle to inject the soft tissue filler directly under skin, along the targeted area of the nose. Each nonsurgical rhinoplasty is custom-tailored to the specific needs of the individual patient.
How long does a nonsurgical rhinoplasty take to perform?
A nonsurgical rhinoplasty normally takes under 30 minutes to perform.
When can I go back to work after my nonsurgical rhinoplasty?
As a nonsurgical rhinoplasty does not involve any incisions or sutures, there is no downtime required. Most patients tolerate their treatment well, and can be back to their normal activities the same afternoon.
How long will the results from my nonsurgical rhinoplasty last?
The benefits of dermal fillers are temporary. Depending on the exact filler used for your nonsurgical rhinoplasty, and the extent of correction, your results will last from three months to over a year. Once the benefits begin to fade, the nonsurgical rhinoplasty treatment can safely be repeated.
What are the potential side-effects and complications from a nonsurgical rhinoplasty?
Dr. Vitenas utilizes cutting-edge dermal fillers and noninvasive techniques for safely improving the shape or contour of the nose.

Risks of fillers can include infection, nerve damage, asymmetry, and scarring.
How much will my nonsurgical rhinoplasty cost?
The exact cost of a nonsurgical rhinoplasty will depend on the exact filler used and the extent of correction, generally ranging from $800-$1500. During your consultation, Dr. Vitenas will create a treatment plan around your specific needs, determining the exact price at this time.
