Do You Need Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty? 

It’s difficult to focus on your best features when the nose is out of balance. No matter how much you try to camouflage them, nasal irregularities are front and center. Its prominent position makes the nose a key component of an attractive face. While a good nose goes almost unnoticed, one that is too large, crooked, or irregularly shaped will draw immediate attention. For many people, insecurity about their nose keeps them from feeling confident and beautiful. 

Our Solution: Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty/Nose Contouring 

Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty Treatment with Dermal Fillers

At Mabrie Facial Institute, we are uniquely qualified to use fillers to improve nasal contours, and have earned a reputation for the remarkable results we create through nonsurgical rhinoplasty (nose job) for our San Francisco Bay Area patients. The development of nonsurgical rhinoplasty has been one of the most transformational developments in facial aesthetic procedures in recent years, and Dr. Mabrie has been heavily involved in its advancement.  

As a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Mabrie specialized in surgical rhinoplasty for more than 10 years, and trained at Johns Hopkins and Stanford. He has in-depth, hands-on experience with the complexities of nasal anatomy, and was one of the first surgeons to offer nonsurgical rhinoplasty in the Bay Area. He has performed the procedure daily for more than 15 years, and has dedicated thousands of hours to training his associates in this advanced technique. Each of our providers has mastered the art and science of applying fillers to specific anatomic locations to contour and sculpt the nose for optimal results and safety.   

Many individuals unhappy with their noses are pleasantly surprised by how much contouring our team can do with the innovative and artistic use of fillers. No matter your age, gender, or ethnicity, we can make subtle changes that vastly improve the appearance of your nose without stripping it of its character.

Real Patient Examples

What can be addressed with nonsurgical rhinoplasty?

Augmenting the Bridge

Some patients lack projection or definition and need their nasal dorsum/nasal bridge augmented.

Reducing a Bump/Hump on the Bridge

A bump or hump on the bridge of the nose can distort the profile and make the nose overly prominent. Streamlining the nasal bridge is a component of many of the nonsurgical rhinoplasties Dr. Mabrie performs.

Straight, smooth nasal contours are key to an attractive nose. If the nose is crooked, asymmetrical, or indented, it can detract from the beauty of the face. Whether it’s a congenital condition or the result of trauma or prior surgery, our team is uniquely qualified to address these concerns. 

Defining the Nasal Tip

As the point of farthest projection, the tip of the nose is very important to the overall appearance of the nose. If the tip is bulbous, undefined, droopy, or asymmetrical, it can overshadow other features. 

Rotating a Droopy Tip

For patients with a drooping tip, well-placed injections can increase rotation and create an upward tilt.

Narrowing the Bridge

When the bridge of the nose looks broad and sometimes flattened, we can build with filler to create a defined, narrower appearance.

Straightening the Bridge

A crooked bridge can be visually “straightened” by balancing the lines with the strategic application of filler.

Sometimes surgical rhinoplasty weakens the nasal bones or cartilage, resulting in indentations or other irregularities. We use fillers to restore symmetry and a natural, attractive shape.

Your Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty Procedure 

When preparing for your nose contouring procedure, it is important to evaluate both the three-dimensional shape of the nose and its relation to the rest of the face. For example, it is key to evaluate not only the projection of the nose but also its relative proportion/projection to the chin and the lips on profile view. It is also important that your nose contouring procedure is staged over 2 (or more) appointments.

Initial Appointment    

The external appearance of the nose, like the rest of the face, is determined by the form and structure beneath the skin. At Mabrie Facial Institute, we have mastered the art and science of using filler as a sculpting material to create a more ideal appearance. The filler—typically Restylane®—is injected using a blunt-tipped microcannula or a microneedle for improved comfort and increased safety. Our experienced providers inject at a precise anatomic depth where there are fewer arteries, and they use a low-pressure injection technique. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a delicate procedure, and while complications are rare, it is best left in the hands of highly skilled facial specialists like the team at Mabrie Facial Institute. 

Refinement Appointment 

Adding too much filler at once can cause it to pool or spread. That’s why we start conservatively at the initial appointment, then build on that foundation at the second appointment. We wait 1 to 3 months between treatments to allow swelling to subside completely. Then, we refine your initial results, layering on additional filler only where it’s needed. We take our time to get it just right, with stunning, natural-looking results that can enhance your entire face.

Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty FAQs  

Can I have nose fillers after rhinoplasty? 

It’s a common misconception that individuals who have had nose surgery should not have fillers placed in the nose. It is true that patients with previous surgical rhinoplasty have an increased risk of vascular occlusion, therefore they must be evaluated case by case for candidacy. That said, we have treated numerous patients with fillers after surgical rhinoplasty with great success. In fact, in the hands of a very experienced and skilled provider, this can be an excellent alternative to undergoing revision surgery. To learn more about the advantages of using fillers after rhinoplasty surgery, read our blog post, “Are Fillers Safe After Rhinoplasty.”  


What if I don’t like my nonsurgical rhinoplasty results? 

One of the greatest benefits of nonsurgical rhinoplasty is that the procedure is reversible in most cases. If a patient is unsatisfied for any reason, a special enzyme-based product called Hylenex® can be injected into the treatment area within the first 24 hours. This immediately dissolves hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane®JUVÉDERM®, and Restylane® Lyft. RADIESSE® is not a hyaluronic acid and can not be reversed. Ultimately, the effects of dermal fillers are temporary as they are naturally reabsorbed by the body over the course of a few months. 


How much does nonsurgical rhinoplasty cost? 

A “liquid nose job” costs $3,000 at Mabrie Facial Institute. This includes your first appointment and the products used, as well as your second appointment and one additional syringe of filler. If additional syringes are needed, those are priced at a discount. Qualified borrowers may be eligible for 0% financing for 6 to 12 months through CareCredit and Alphaeon medical financing.    


What are the risks of nonsurgical rhinoplasty? 

As with any facial dermal filler injection, there is some risk of vascular occlusion (when an artery or vein is blocked by filler). There is also a very small (1-500,000) risk of blindness. The risks are higher in the nasal area, making it all the more important that you choose a provider who specializes in this procedure. The injector must be very familiar with the nasal anatomy, in particular, the vascular anatomy. At Mabrie Facial Institute, we have the knowledge and experience needed to minimize risk, as well as recognize signs of complications and effectively treat them. For example, we have the products and the training to dissolve the filler immediately if there are any signs of vascular occlusion.  

Some temporary side effects such as bruising, swelling, and irritation at the injection site may not be completely avoidable but can be reduced or managed with proper care. Although very rare, there is a risk for injury to the skin, especially those who are concerned with refining the nasal tip. After treatment it is important to watch for signs of vascular compromise, paleness of the skin, increasing pain, or redness. 


What are the advantages of nonsurgical rhinoplasty? 

In addition to being reversible, dermal fillers are versatile, so our associates are able to achieve delicate, very specific improvements that look natural. This type of precision may not be possible with nose surgery. Results are visible very soon after the procedure (if not immediately), and you can provide real-time guidance to ensure the results meet your expectations and goals. The quick, comfortable procedure takes only 15 to 30 minutes, whereas surgery can take 4 to 6 hours and requires general anesthesia. There is no downtime with nonsurgical rhinoplasty, whereas surgery requires an extended recovery, and results take up to a year to materialize. Learn more by reading this blog post.

Loving my results so far! I can't wait to come back again! The staff was so friendly and made me feel welcomed and very safe. The office is beautiful and clean! I was immediately greeted and did a COVID screening with a temp check. They escorted me to my room with a beautiful view of SF. I felt pampered, and their customer service is excellent! The injector Tiffany answered all my questions and made me feel at ease, since this was my first time getting Botox. After she marked my face, she explained where and why she was placing the Botox in certain areas. My frown muscles were so bulky and I didn't like how it always looked like I was frowning even when my face was at rest. Now, I don't always look like I'm frowning! My frown muscles look less bulky, forehead looks smoother and I got a subtle brow lift -- I love it!

They are amazing here w/ customer service, amiable, listen fully to your desires, and work their hardest to bring them to fruition whether it’s the initial appointment or in my case, complementary touch up w/in set timeframe. Just for clarification, when I put “they” I mean everyone from whomever answers the phone/anyone greeting you when the elevator’s doors open and you arrive at your appointment to your departure via the elevator again. Side note: I would include the security/door men as they’ve always been pleasant to me, but they aren’t apart of this business🙂

For my first time ever getting work done on my face, this was a great experience. They made me feel at home and comfortable which eased my fear. I got my mid-area done by Kimberly and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to fly back out there for my second session! If your looking to have work done I highly recommend them, you’ll be happy you did.

I came in earlier today and got a 360 facial treatment done. Everyone in the office made me feel really comfortable. It’s a really lovely space and it’s chic but really homey. I definitely would go back and I feel safe with the results. I feel like Dr. Mabrie was very transparent about the pricing and what he would be using and where. I do still have some swelling in my chin mainly. But excited to see what it looks like when I’m healed!

Dr. Mabrie is a wizard. After extensive research across California (SF to LA and everywhere in between) for who to consult for some of my skin concerns, I chose this clinic for Dr. Mabrie's multi-faceted expertise and reviews on meticulousness. I wasn't shorted, him and his team are incredible.

I've visited Mabrie Facial Institute twice, and both visits were stellar. All staff members, from the font-line staff, to assistants, all the way up to Dr. Mabrie were kind, caring, thoughtful- I honestly just can't say enough. At no time did I feel pressured about anything. Honestly (and trust me, I'm skeptical of most people), everyone there made me feel appreciated and cared for. They were patient with my endless questions, did very careful work, and were just overall so lovely and personable. I've honestly never had such a great experience before.

I first came across Dr. Mabrie’s practice when I was reviewing the top 100 US aesthetic injectors list for 2019. While I had been to other offices in LA and NYC, I had been dying to go someplace in The Bay (where I live). Finally I had found a practice where I could draw up a beauty plan and see tangible, top of the line results. Fast forward to 2020 and I’m on my second visit with Kimberly for lower face enhancement and masseter slimming with Botox. The warmth, professionalism, and artistic vision of Kimberly and the Mabrie team is unparalleled — I highly recommend if you’ve been considering any type of cosmetic beautification, that you jump right into the chair at Mabrie Facial Cosmetics. Thanks again Mabrie team!! I love my results, and can’t wait to see you again in just a month’s time.

Previously, I've used online coupons offers which slightly improved my sunken eye look, as well as the furrows on my brow and mouth. After receiving Dr. Mabrie's facial treatment, my husband who hadn't been too impressed with my coupon treatments, immediately said, "WowI Baby, you look so beautiful!" I cannot give a greater testimonial than that. And I too share my husband's sentiment - I do look damn amazing! 🙂

Truly, the best practitioner in the Bay Area, and one who keeps up to date on new developments in the field. Since 2017, when I first went to see Dr Mabrie after noticeable loss of volume in my face, he's carefully restored me back to my younger appearance. He doesn't ever suggest unnecessary treatments or over-inject; he's not cheap (nothing in San Francisco is), but his expert approach to fillers guarantees very natural-looking results that will elicit "Oh, you're looking so great!" comments, rather than the dreaded "Got some work done, huh?" Highly recommend him!

Dr Mabrie's office was in a convenient location in Union square. It is an elegant office, I was greeted warmly. I was nervous as I had other facial experiences that I did not want to repeat. Matt gave me details on the products and answered all my questions even ones I didn't know I had. When Kimberly can in I was ready. With a steady gentle touch she made such a difference in my appearance. I am excited to get back in and continue down the path of renewal. I look like me only refreshed. Comments like you look great, had some time off? I love it!
