Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty, or “nose job,” is a delicate surgical procedure and often leads to results that are not what the patient expected – either too large, too small, or a reshaped nose that does not suit the other facial features and is obvious. Our San Francisco non-surgical rhinoplasty is a new option that can produce impressive results in facial harmony and balance.

How Long Does a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Last?

While dermal fillers are not permanent, permanent facial fillers are now available so your nose enhancement can last and last. Are you ready to create a more appealing look to your nose, but don’t want to undergo invasive surgery? Let Dr. Sheena Kong evaluate your nose structure and determine whether this procedure can make your nose more attractive. This procedure is an excellent way to transform your nose and is appropriate for the following:

  • Correcting minor bumps
  • Resolving droopy nose tip
  • Correcting uneven nose structure
  • Evening out a depressed or bump on bridge
Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

Preparing for a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

While a surgical rhinoplasty requires patient preparation, in a non-surgical nose job almost no patient preparation is required. The entire process requires only a short appointment to complete, and many patients return to work immediately after the procedure. Prior to injecting the dermal filler to create a more attractive nose appearance, a topical numbing cream will be applied to make the treatment more comfortable.

To limit the risk of excessive bruising at the injection site:

  • Avoid blood-thinning medications
  • Avoid blood-thinning herbal remedies
  • Avoid some supplements and foods (including vitamin E, garlic, and ginseng)
  • Avoid aspirin and ibuprofen

Planning Your Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty: A Personal Consultation

While the procedure itself requires only a few minutes, Dr. Sheena Kong works closely with each patient in planning the procedure. Whether you want to increase volume on the nose bridge or smooth or even out an irregularity, we want to meet your expectations for results. We will share information about the treatment and whether it will be effective for you.

Balancing Your Features with a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

An evaluation of your facial features and your nose will reveal whether a non-surgical nose job will create a more pleasing, balanced look – and it often will. The procedure is far superior to surgery for in improving a minor nose defect and adding volume to the bridge of the nose – as it involves no incisions or extensive recovery time.

Benefits of a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

This treatment has many benefits and becoming increasingly popular as the right treatment to increase nose bridge volume or smooth nose imperfections. The benefits include:

  • Non-surgical – no scalpel, no incision
  • No downtime
  • Immediate results

Candidates for a Non-Surgical Nose Job

Not every patient can have a nose defect resolved with a non-surgical rhinoplasty, but a surprising number of people are candidates. Those who are unhappy with the appearance of the nose should schedule a consultation to determine if this treatment will be effective. Some of the aesthetic issues that can be resolved with the treatment include:

  • Flat nose bridge
  • Droopy nose tip
  • Uneven nose structure
  • Hump on nose bridge

While it may seem amazing, it is true – a hump on the nose bridge can appear much less prominent with a non-surgical rhinoplasty. Adding subtle volume on either side of the hump serves to make the profile straight and smooth, and the nose can appear much smaller, even though some volume has been added. Dermal fillers are lasting, but each product varies in how long it will produce the improved look. If you love the change in your facial profile, you will need to maintain the look by repeating the process, or via the use of a longer-lasting filler.

Fun Fact: Non-Surgical Treatments Take Over the Plastic Surgery Field

In the past, only surgery could resolve many facial flaws, including a less attractive nose. In recent years, non-surgical treatments have become so effective and popular that they are taking over the field. In fact, many plastic surgeons now offer these options – that’s what patients want.

Dr. Sheena Kong has been a believer in advanced technology from the start and has stayed at the forefront in new non-surgical aesthetic treatments throughout her long, successful career. Will plastic surgery become a thing of the past? It may be possible as new technologies are developed.

Our office is open starting on June 15, 2020. We consider the well-being of our patients and staff as our highest priority and it is always best to take sensible precautions during a time like this.

Please note the following in regards to all patient appointments:

We are asking patients who experience any of the following symptoms to self-quarantine and cancel their appointments: fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat, coughing, and/or chest pain.

(This also includes those that have been in contact with COVID-19 positive individuals such as traveling to and from any high risk areas such as New York/New Jersey to self-quarantine and cancel appointments.)

  • All patients will have temperatures taken and are requested to wear a mask throughout their appointments.
  • We are limiting the number of appointments to reinforce social distancing.
  • Only the patients who are receiving a treatment are allowed in the office (pets, children, family and friends are asked to stay at home).
  • For procedures that patients cannot wear a mask, we request patients to obtain a COVID-19 test 3-5 days prior to their scheduled appointments (see below for testing information).
  • These treatments include:

Contact our office for setting up a Consultation or Appointment: Virtual Consultation

COVID-19 Testing Information:

For COVID-19 testing, you can do either the nasal swab or the saliva test, of which the latter may be more comfortable.

You can order your saliva test at the following link 2 weeks before your appointment for it to arrive in time; Vault health will prepare the paperwork for your reimbursement. Your first test should be covered by your insurance under the CARES Act:


Once the test arrives, please schedule your consultation about one week prior to your appointment. With the guidance of a Vault Health nurse, collect saliva for the test and then overnight your completed kit via FedEx (provided by Vault Health). Your results will be available about 2-3 days afterwards. You will then email Dr. Kong at info@sheenakong.com the results once you receive them.

Lastly, in addition to our already extensive level of cleaning and sterilization, we have supplemented these efforts with additional deep cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces. I appreciate your efforts in keeping our practice a safer place!

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Kindest Regards,
Dr. Sheena Kong
