Patient Testimonial: 

After a rhinoplasty surgery with a premier plastic surgeon in California 10 years ago, I had to have a revision due to complications of tissue atrophy on the bridge of my nose. A second surgery a year later helped but didn’t completely solve the problem, so I just lived with a noticeable dent on the bridge of my nose. A few months ago, I happened across a Before/After photo on Silk Touch Med Spa’s website of a nose job revision using liquid fillers. I hadn’t even known that was possible!

At a single appointment and at a fraction of the cost, Dr. Kerr used Voluma (one of a few fillers available for this procedure, but the best option for me) to sculpt the deficit on the bridge of my nose. I could not be any happier with my results; it’s perfect. Thank you Dr. Kerr and staff! I only wish I had known about this years ago!

About The Treatment:

Traditional Rhinoplasty can be quite expensive. On top of that, it might involve numerous revisions and it requires a long recovery period – during which your face is screaming to the world “I just had a nose job!!!”

Dermal fillers have changed the cosmetic surgery playing field.  Often you can correct a nose for less in no time by just injecting temporary fillers. If you want something more permanent, Artefill is the only long lasting filler-- lasting 5 years or more.   Forget the anesthesia, the packing and the sutures – instead the only tools needed are a syringe and dermal fillers. A lot less gruesome than anything you see on Nip-Tuck.

10-minute Nose Job! Non-surgical rhinoplasty!

Posted by Susan Kerr on Oct 22, 2013 2:36:00 PM

Guess who's had a nose job?   

Walk down the streets of any big city and I bet you will encounter over 100 people who have had a nose job. It is one of the most common changes people make to their face when getting plastic surgery.

While the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports a drop in rhinoplasty procedures, there has been an increase in alternative rhinoplasty treatments. 

Traditional Rhinoplasty can be quite expensive. On top of that, it might involve numerous revisions and it requires a long recovery period – during which your face is screaming to the world “I just had a nose job!!!”

 Dermal fillers have changed the cosmetic surgery playing field.  Often you can correct a nose for less in no time by just injecting a favorite filler like Radiesse or Juvederm.  Some doctors prefer using a Fat Transfer using your own fat.  If you want something more permanent, Artefill is the only long lasting filler-- lasting 5 years or more.   Forget the anesthesia, the packing and the sutures – instead the only tools needed are a syringe and dermal fillers. A lot less gruesome than anything you see on Nip-Tuck.

The only downside to non-surgical rhinoplasty is that unlike a traditional nose job, the results are not permanent for life. Although with long lasting fillers like Artefill, your results can last indefinitely as the microspheres in Artefill do not break down. By injecting fillers into the nose, we can fill small depressions and even out bumps and humps. It is a great procedure for correcting nasal deformities and for adding height to make a bump less noticeable.

Dr. Kerr &  nurse injector Rachel are very experienced Artefill Trainers.  Rachel often travels to other medical offices teaching other doctors and nurses the injection techniques used at Silk Touch Med Spa in Boise.  Their recent move to their new facility on Eagle Road allows them the room and ability to have other physicians and nurse injectors travel to Silk Touch for training.

Artefill Before and After Photos - Non-surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty (nose job) can be done with the following fillers or Fat Transfer- juvederm, radiesse and artefill.  

What do you think about this alternative to the traditional nose job? I think anytime you can avoid an expensive surgery it's a good thing. Especially when the problem you have with your nose is minimal and can be fixed with a simple injection.

Artefill may also be used for the face to correct tear troughs, acne scarring and to volumize the face. artefill before and after photos, tear trough and nose rhinoplasty
