Serving Scottsdale, Phoenix, Gilbert, and Surrounding AZ Cities
Gilbert and Scottsdale, AZ surgeon, Dr. Jude LaBarbera, performs non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures to help patients achieve a beautiful and symmetrical nose appearance. A few years ago, patients who needed a nose job had only one option – rhinoplasty. Fortunately, newer approaches are available that can achieve excellent cosmetic results, but without the inconvenience of surgery. Dr. LaBarbera uses botulinum toxin and injectable fillers to give countless men and women in Scottsdale and surround AZ areas a symmetrical facial frame.
The nose takes a center stage appearance on the face and can have a dramatic influence on your overall appearance. Though non-surgical rhinoplasty, or ‘liquid rhinoplasty’, Dr. Jude LaBarbera can:
- Straighten a bump at the nasal bridge
- Make the nose look smaller
- Correct nose asymmetry
- Fill facial depressions and acne scars
- Lift a droopy nose tip
Patients who had prior rhinoplasty surgery and are dissatisfied with the results can benefit from a non-surgical approach. Some of Dr. LaBarbera’s patients are individuals who have minor irregularities (such as small depressions around the nasal tip) from a previous surgery. He works individually with each patient and formulates an effective treatment plan to meet their aesthetic goals.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, cosmetic adjustment can be a good solution. A non-surgical approach to nose reshaping offers many benefits:
- There are no incision sites, no sutures, no surgical risk, and no healing period involve
- Injections are shallow, and local numbing can help make the patient comfortable
- Results are immediate
- Typically no downtime – any bruising or redness resolves quickly and can be easily camouflaged with makeup
- Results last up to a year
Non-surgical nose reshaping is an outpatient procedure usually performed under topical numbing. The procedure takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. The surgeon uses various methods to add volume to depressions, soften out sharp angles, and generally alter the tip of the nose. Over the years, Dr. LaBarbera has discovered that straightening out the nose by removing bumps, fixing asymmetry and lifting the tip usually makes the nose look smaller. The surgical option to be used will be determined based on the unique needs of each patient.
a) Injectable fillers – the surgeon typically uses injectable fillers such as Radiesse and Voluma XC. Radiesse is a reliable and safe filler that is made up of calcium and cellulose. It’s been around the years and offers excellent results without any adverse side effects. It also does not require pre-procedure testing for allergy. Dr. LaBarbera may also use the Juvederm’s Voluma XC dermal filler that is created from hyaluronic acid. In some cases, Volume XC has been shown to last up to 2 years. It also does not require pre-allergy testing and is completely reversible in case the patient is not happy with the results. Injectable fillers like these will naturally (and evenly) break down and are absorbed by the body. Thus, they are a temporary solution and patients need to be re-injected in order to maintain their cosmetic results. Dr. LaBarbera usually recommends this option to patients who have never had injections before. The patient and the surgeon can work together to achieve precise results, while also exploring alternatives for a more permanent solution.
b) Bellafill – for patients who prefer permanent results, Dr. LaBarbera will use Bellafill. Previously known as Artefill, this is the first FDA-approved permanent injectable filler in the US market. Bellafill is created from a non-reactive material that can serve as a surgical implant for decades. It provides a safer and more reliable alternative to silicone-based nose enhancement. The surgeon will inject this filler gradually over a period of 3-5 sessions (spaced 6 weeks apart). Skilled use of Bellafill in non-surgical nose jobs has helped countless patients achieve permanent results without the need for surgery.
