    Liquid Rhinoplasty: The Non-Surgical Nose Job [Part 3 of #RiedlerKnowsNoses]

    Liquid Rhinoplasty: The Non-Surgical Nose Job [Part 3 of #RiedlerKnowsNoses]

    You might think the only option for reshaping your nose is to undergo a surgical rhinoplasty. But there’s another way to change the shape of your nose that isn’t so serious. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kiersten Riedler educates us about the liquid rhinoplasty, known as the “non-surgical nose job.”


    In this procedure, an injectable filler like Juvederm Voluma XC is used to change the shape or contour of the nose. Deep indentations or depressions above the hump can be filled in, camouflaging any irregularities.


    You may see the word “filler” and think it would make your nose larger, but adding filler along the center of a wide nose bridge can actually make it appear thinner. A liquid rhinoplasties can also correct a crooked nose, asymmetric nostrils, and more.


    The best candidates for the liquid rhinoplasty are people with mild issues, such as humps along the bridge, or minor asymmetries. If you want to “test drive” changing the shape of your nose before taking the permanent step of having surgery, a non-surgical rhinoplasty is a great option to try beforehand.

    Septoplasty + Septorhinoplasty: Combining Deviated Septum Surgery and Cosmetic Nose Surgery to Breathe Better (and Look Great!) [Part 2 of #RiedlerKnowsNoses]

    Septoplasty + Septorhinoplasty: Combining Deviated Septum Surgery and Cosmetic Nose Surgery to Breathe Better (and Look Great!) [Part 2 of #RiedlerKnowsNoses]

    Breathing through your nose is one of those basic things you take for granted until you can’t do it anymore. Guest host Laura Cain talks with facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kiersten Riedler about nose surgery, specifically the septoplasty and rhinoplasty surgeries she does to fix the inside and outside of the nose.


    If you’re used to going through life with restricted nasal passages, you might not even realize how much better it could be. The septoplasty is surgery to straighten or correct a deviated septum, while a rhinoplasty is surgery to change the shape of the nose for either cosmetic or functional purposes.


    If someone wants to change the inside of their nose as well as its outside structure, it can be done in two surgeries, but it’s preferred to do them together (septorhinoplasty) because it’s less time under anesthesia, less recovery, and easier on the surgeon.


    Laura asks Dr. Riedler all the questions people are too afraid to ask, from the impact of past cocaine use on the inside of her nose to her honest thoughts on Michael Jackson’s nose.


    Even though nose surgery looks dramatic on tv shows like Botched, it doesn’t require a hospital stay and Dr. Riedler reassures us that it’s not that scary and you can go home the same day.


    Dr. Riedler discusses the ins and outs of recovery after a rhinoplasty and septoplasty, where to find reliable information about nose procedures, the revision rate for nose procedures, septal perforation caused by addiction and whether it is fixable, and more.

    Rhinoplasty: Everything You Need to Know About Changing Your Nose [Part 1 of #RiedlerKnowsNoses]

    Rhinoplasty: Everything You Need to Know About Changing Your Nose [Part 1 of #RiedlerKnowsNoses]

    Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kiersten Riedler answers important questions about noses and rhinoplasty, like do your nose and ears really keep growing as you age? How old do you have to be to have rhinoplasty? What should you do if you get hit in the nose with a baseball?


    Although no two noses are the same and no two rhinoplasty procedures are the same, the approaches to surgery are fairly standard. Dr. Riedler explains the open approach, in which an incision is made externally between and inside the nostrils, and the closed approach, which consists of more extensive internal incisions, but none on the outside.


    Many people worry about recovery following nose surgery, and the most common complaint Dr. Riedler hears from patients after surgery may surprise you (hint: it’s not pain).


    On this episode, Dr. Riedler shares what you need to know about cosmetic rhinoplasty and what to do if your rhinoplasty is needed as a result of an injury.
