Rhinoplasty is the traditional facial procedure to resolve cosmetic and functional concerns of the nose. Whether a patient wishes to change the length of the bridge or eliminate a deviated septum that causes breathing problems, Dr. David Whiteman has over 20 years of surgical experience and has refined his techniques for nose surgery. He specializes in ethnic rhinoplasty as he has produced natural-looking results for patients of different backgrounds including African-American, Hispanic/Latino and Asian. Now he has developed and refined the use of facial fillers to rejuvenate the nose and surrounding area.
Facial fillers are non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments in the form of an injectable. Composed of naturally-occurring substances found in the human body, facial fillers restore lost facial volume and smooths wrinkles and lines. Also known as dermal fillers or just simply fillers, these treatments are great for patients with moderate to minimal signs of aging or to help maintain plastic surgery results. While these are typically injected in the cheeks, mouth area, and jaw line, Dr. Whiteman now uses fillers to resolve nose issues.
For patients concerned with lost volume or a sunken nasal appearance, Dr. Whiteman can inject an amount of filler to restore the lost volume for a more balanced, youthful appearance. By adding volume, he can straighten the bridge or add volume to a flattened appearance. Patients also enjoy the benefits of minimal to no downtime and quick, short injections to treat targeted areas. However, while fillers can improve the bridge, tip, and base of the nose, it does not have permanent results like a rhinoplasty procedure and will require additional treatments over time.
