Restylane ® and RADIESSE ® are the most popular dermal filler options when it comes to non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures. Dr. Kevin Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon who is based out of Newport Beach, is now offering these injectable treatments to his Orange County patients. This is a great option for patients who might want to see the same results as a nose job, but do not require a major surgical procedure.
California patients who are interested in this option should know a little bit about each of the dermal-fillers before making a final decision. First, both RADIESSE ® and Restylane® are considered injectable fillers that are used in non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures. It is important for patients to understand that these fillers will not provide permanent, long-term results. Restylane ® is considered a short-term solution, but it is effective in correcting minor aesthetic issues with the nose.
The procedure is quick and relatively painless, so patients often do not mind returning to the surgeon every six months to have it re-administered. RADIESSE does not provide the same long term results that a surgical nose job provides, but it does last a little bit longer than Restylane®. The average patient returns every 9 months to a year to have RADIESSE® treatments re-administered by the surgeon. No matter which filler options a patient chooses, the best results will be achieved if the patient returns for several treatments.
While this is a great option for patients who want a quick and easy fix on their nose, Dr. Sadati thinks it is important to be upfront and honest about this procedure. It does provide results that look similar to that of a surgical rhinoplasty, however, the only way to achieve permanent results is to have the traditional procedure done. Patients who are disappointed in the way that their nose looks and feel it is not harmonious with the rest of their face should contact the office today to set up a free consultation.
At this appointment, the patient can then talk about their misgivings with the doctor and together, the doctor and the patient can come up with a plan of action. Dr. Sadati will recommend non surgical techniques if the patient only requires a simple reshaping or augmentation, but if there are structural issues present, Dr. Sadati will likely recommend a surgical rhinoplasty procedure. No matter which choice a patient makes, Dr. Sadati makes every effort to ensure that he creates a new nose that works better for the person’s face and lifestyle. He always takes into account genetics, personality and patient desires, whether performing a surgical or non-surgical rhinoplasty.
