Liquid Rhinoplasty Pittsburgh

Are you unhappy with bumps on the bridge of the nose, depressions, or indentations; but do not have the time for a long recovery?

This procedure allows one to correct mild to moderate cosmetic issues of the nose with little to no downtime.

About Non-surgical Rhinoplasty

What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Often called a liquid rhinoplasty or liquid nose job, non-surgical rhinoplasty utilizes dermal fillers to alter the nasal structure producing significant results. Using Restylane®, a hyaluronic acid filler, Dr. Pautler injects a small amount (typically 0.5–1 mL) into the problem areas of the nose to produce the desired cosmetic appearance.

With over two decades of use, dermal fillers have been helping patients achieve remarkable results without needing a surgical procedure or taking extended amounts of time off work. A non-surgical nose job is also less costly than the surgical alternative providing insight into what the surgical procedure can do to improve your appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is ideal for mild to moderate cosmetic issues of the nose including dorsal humps (bumps on the bridge of the nose), depressions, indentions, crookedness, and downturned or upturned tips of noses. Liquid rhinoplasty is an option for individuals who have never had nasal surgery before and patients who wish to improve the irregularities of a previous surgical rhinoplasty. Liquid rhinoplasties don’t correct but they camouflage several nasal deformities.

This non-invasive rhinoplasty option can be ideal for those unable to undergo a surgical procedure due to health conditions. However, ideally, candidates are healthy and are not currently taking blood thinning medications. For optimal results, patients should have realistic expectations for the procedure and understand its limitations.

How Much Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Cost?

The average liquid rhinoplasty cost in Pittsburgh can range from $500 to $2500. This range varies depending on surgical location, physician experience, and type of dermal filler used.

Physicians located on the East Coast and with high levels of expertise in performing non-surgical rhinoplasties are in increased demand. In addition to the higher costs of living along the East Coast, these procedures will typically be priced higher than less populated areas.

The type and amount of dermal filler used during the injection factor into the overall cost of the procedure. With every patient having their individual needs, a customized plan will be developed which allows Dr. Pautler to provide the overall cost for the procedure during the initial consultation.

The procedure is performed at Dr. Pautler’s office and typically lasts about an hour. This helps to lower the costs by avoiding surgical facility and anesthesia fees.

Does health insurance cover liquid rhinoplasty?

Unfortunately, health insurance companies classify non-surgical nose job Pittsburgh procedures as cosmetic procedures and thus do not provide coverage for these procedures. Therefore, this procedure must be paid for out-of-pocket.

What to Expect During a Consultation for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

During the initial consultation, an examination of the nose and face will be performed to identify cosmetic issues amenable to non-surgical correction. A thorough review of your medical history will be performed to ensure no conditions or medications that could increase the risk of complications exist. Dr. Pautler will review your goals for the procedures and determine if a liquid rhinoplasty Pittsburgh can achieve these expectations. Finally, the procedure, risks, and recovery will be discussed and you will be provided with a detailed explanation of the total costs of the injection. Dr. Pautler will also show you before and after photos of previous liquid rhinoplasty cases.

Recovery from Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty in Pittsburgh

Immediate results are visible after the procedure but some redness and pain may be experienced and will typically disappear after a day or two. The full results may take one to two weeks to appear as the swelling gradually resolves. If bruising occurs, this will resolve over the first week or two.

Patients may return to work and routine activities immediately after the procedure; however, strenuous activities should be avoided for 24 hours.

The results of a non-surgical nose job Pittsburgh will typically last patients from eight to ten months with touch-ups helping to extend the life of the procedure. During these touch-up procedures, significantly less dermal filler is needed.

Risks of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Dermal fillers are associated with common side effects including temporary bruising and swelling. However, rare but serious side effects can occur. These include:

  • Occlusion of vein or artery. This can cause skin and tissue death, scarring, and even blindness.
  • Inconsistent aesthetic results. Under or over-correction and residual asymmetry can occur especially in inexperienced hands.
  • Allergic reaction. Allergic reactions to a component of the injection can cause redness, swelling, itching, and pain.

To minimize these risks, Dr. Pautler uses a blunt-tipped, small cannula to deliver precise amounts of dermal filler to the areas of need. This helps to precisely correct the cosmetic issues and prevent the inadvertent puncturing of an artery or vein.

Featured Testimonials

Here’s what our clients have to say

"Dr. Pautler is an amazing person. I wanted to have a breast augmentation but was nervous. She took the time to fully explain everything to me. I never felt as if a question was stupid or not worth her time. I quickly realized that I had found the right doctor. My surgery went very well, thanks to the expert hands of Dr. Pautler. The first few days of my recovery were as expected. Then I noticed that my incisions were becoming increasingly itchy. On a Saturday morning, I called the number Dr. Pautler had given me. A little while later, she met me in her office. I was having a rare allergic reaction to the adhesive. She was able to treat me and told me to come into the office on Monday. I was very grateful for this weekend visit with her. Much to my surprise, I got a phone call the next day, from Dr. Pautler. It was a Sunday! She was calling to see how I was feeling. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. I wish more doctors were as caring and as compassionate as her.”

"I recently went to Dr. Pautler to have my first breast augmentation back in May 2017. Dr. Pautler is such an amazing women and surgeon. From the moment I walked into her office for my consultation to my last follow up appointment, every one in her office was so welcoming, professional, and made my experience so much better. She took a lot of time with me during our initial consultation to discuss all of my options. She was so honest with me from the get go and I instantly felt comfortable putting my personal appearance into her hands. I never once felt that she tried to pressure me into doing anything that I was not comfortable with. Her bedside manner is absolutely amazing...and I am a nurse who works on a post surgical unit and frequently see how surgeons do not always have the best bedside manner. The staff in her office are so friendly and remember you when you come in for all of your appointments...and that meant a lot to me that I was not just another patient. During my pre-op and post op stages at the hospital, all of the staff had great things to say about her. They often refer to her as "amazing", which made me feel so good! I am now completely healed from the surgery, and I could not be happier with my results. She made me feel so much better about my physical appearance and I have so much more confidence now thanks to her!”

"Worth the long drive. The local surgeons close to me have 2 hour long office waits, incompetent staff, change pricing and hospital locations at zero hour, and don't explain everything well. Dr. Pautler came recommended to me and I'm glad she was.”

"Wonderful doctor who is so caring! Having her perform my mommy makeover was the best decision of my life!! My body looks amazing thanks to her!”

"A lifetime of being thin and in shape and still... fat arms. At age 44 I was approaching 1,000 barre classes (yay!) and I told myself, if I still hate my arms after 1,000 barre classes, I will get the arm lipo. I had received quotes for the procedure twice before but chickened out - also my husband and even plastic surgeon has said 'you're thin and in great shape. You don't need it'”

"I was on the fence with going through a Breast Augmentation for a few years. There were obvious reasons on why I wanted one, but I knew that going through with this surgery would need to be done at the best time with the best doctor. After visiting a few doctors that I was uncomfortable with, someone I knew personally suggested trying her doctor, Dr. Pautler. I immediately called the office...”
