The phrase “going under the knife” can strike fear even in the most courageous patient. This may never be truer than when contemplating any kind of rhinoplasty. As the nose is our most prominent facial feature, even small modifications and enhancements can significantly impact our overall appearance. So it is no surprise that some of our patients are not quite ready or comfortable with the commitment and cost required for surgery. At Eos Rejuvenation, Dr. Nima has enthusiastically honed his technique in utilizing injectables to perform what is called a “Non-Surgical Nose Job.” With a skillful hand and artistic eye, Dr. Nima carefully places small amounts of “fillers” to hide bumps, straighten lines, lift and refine nasal tips, all without any incisions. The results are immediately evident and there is virtually no recovery downtime.
The decision as to whether or not a non-surgical rhinoplasty is appropriate for you will be made in collaboration with Dr. Nima during your initial complimentary consultation. Dr. Nima will evaluate your nasal anatomy, your medical history, and will also cover your questions and concerns. He will take particular time to go over the type of results that can be expected from a non-surgical rhinoplasty and what types of issues can only be addressed surgically. Together, you will determine the most appropriate procedure for you at this time. By way of example, if your wish is to even out a few dents, or to accentuate the tip, the non-surgical route may be the most appropriate. However, if you wish to shrink the overall size of your nose, surgery would still be your best option.
Once the decision is made to proceed with a non-surgical rhinoplasty, Dr. Nima has a variety of solutions he may employ. For instance, the nose’s aesthetics can be subtly and favorably addressed with a combination of dermal fillers (such as Perlane or Restylane) and muscle relaxers, such as Botox or with Dysport. While most non-surgical rhinoplasty results are temporary, the effects can be maintained with periodic injections over time. Additionally, with repeated treatments, some filler will actually “adhere” and become semi-permanent in some patients.
With non-surgical rhinoplasty, there is minimal to no downtime or discomfort. You can go back to work almost immediately. Results are instantaneous and, depending on the treatment, can last from months to 1-2 years. With repeated injections, results can last even longer.

“I have had a sharp bump on one side of my nose since I was about 12 years-old (I broke it a few times). As I got older, I just got used to the look of it, and never thought my nose could look any different without surgery. I also didn’t want to go through the expense and downtime associated with a surgical procedure. Thankfully, a few months ago, I learned about using fillers to non-surgically improve the look of my nose.
When I met Dr. Nima, we discussed my desire to maintain the look of my nose, keep it very natural, and ultimately just get it back to the way it should have looked had I not broken it. He reassured me, explained the whole process to me, and made me feel completely at ease. The staff applied this amazing numbing cream on my nose, too, so the whole process was virtually painless. Right after he finished, he handed me a mirror and I could not believe how amazingly straight and natural my nose looked. Dr. Shemirani completely exceeded my expectations!” – Taylar S.
