Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a solution to correct a previous rhinoplasty that didn’t give you the results you wanted. The HA fillers produce a beautiful, new shape to your nose without the need for revision surgery. You can also use a non-surgical rhinoplasty to build up a low bridge or undefined tip, common concerns with Asian and African noses. A nonsurgical rhinoplasty replaces the need for a cartilage graft.
A non-surgical could be your best solution if your nose is:
- Flat or scooped on the bridge
- Shapeless at tip
- Wide at tip
- Pinched at tip
Removing bumps and asymmetries with non-surgical nose job sometimes creates the illusion of a shorter nose, too.
During your consultation in Charlotte, Dr. Kulbersh and his staff devote ample time to discuss your concerns about your nose. He examines your nasal tissue, including cartilage and bone, and also considers how well your current nose shape harmonizes with your face. Dr. Kulbersh or the other injectors on staff will let you know if non-surgical rhinoplasty is your best solution, or if you’d benefit more from surgery.

Dr. Kulbersh or his nurse injectors should be able to perform your nonsurgical rhinoplasty within an hour. During the session, your injector will place filler in strategic locations around and on the nose to produce the desired result. Patients receive topical numbing prior to the injections to ensure they are comfortable throughout the procedure.
Your results are instantaneous and you can return to regular activities immediately following your procedure. There can sometimes be minimal swelling with any type of injection, but this should resolve in a few days.
When used in the nose, HA fillers tend to last a little longer than in more mobile areas of your face. You’ll need a touch-up every year depending on your correction. Dr. Kulbersh and his staff help you schedule touch-ups to maintain your new look.
As a Beverly-Hills trained facial plastic surgeon who is double board-certified, Dr. Kulbersh and his staff bring a wealth of understanding of anatomy and aesthetics to every nonsurgical rhinoplasty. He’s corrected thousands of noses with his expert surgical techniques and transfers this knowledge to non-surgical procedures, too.

Frequently asked questions
Liquid rhinoplasty is reserved for patients that have minor imperfections they would like addressed without surgery. This treatment cannot reduce the size of the nose. If your concerns cannot be addressed satisfactorily with this treatment, Dr. Kulbersh may discuss your options in surgical rhinoplasty to ensure a better outcome for you.
One of the greatest benefits of a nonsurgical rhinoplasty is that it’s temporary and even reversible. That means you can “try on” a new nose and, if you don’t like it, the HA fillers will dissolve in time to restore your original appearance. If you don’t want to wait, Dr. Kulbersh can dissolve the HA for you in his office with hyaluronidase injections.
Many of Dr. Kulbersh’s patients who aren’t quite sure they’re ready for surgery start with a nonsurgical nose job as a way of easing into their new look. Once they’re used to their “new nose” and are ready to commit to a more balanced and harmonious appearance permanently, Dr. Kulbersh schedules a surgical correction.
Dr. Kulbersh uses numbing medication to keep your nonsurgical rhinoplasty virtually pain free. If you feel any discomfort after the treatment, you can control it with over-the-counter pain medication. You may feel a little bruised or swollen for a couple of days.
