Non-Surgical Nose Job Put To The Test

Could the nose of your dreams be achieved without going under the knife? The Doctors examine a non-surgical option.

Kimberly was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident that required her to be airlifted to the hospital. She recovered, but was left with a misshapen nose after her glasses hit her face during the accident. The change in her appearance is a constant reminder of the painful incident.

“When I look in the mirror, I see a bump and I’m acutely aware of the accident happening, over and over and over,” she says, holding back tears. “I don’t see the lighthearted girl anymore. I’m grateful because it could have been worse, but what would make me happy is to look in the mirror and not have the constant reminder of the accident. I want to move on, I want to be better.”

Dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer joins The Doctors to perform a “non-surgical nose job,” or a filler rhinoplasty, on Kimberly. He injects hyaluronic acid into her nose adding volume and hiding the existing bump.

Following her procedure, Kimberly joins the panel with Dr. Emer to discuss the results. He says the initial bruising and swelling following the injections is expected, but after around a week, a straight contour can be expected. The results can last up to two years. A procedure like this will cost approximately $2,000 dollars, which is cheaper than a traditional nose job and has a much shorter recovery period.
