Nose Job Bellevue: How Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Done?

By | Injectables, Rhinoplasty | No Comments
When considering a non-surgical rhinoplasty, patients often wonder: how is non-surgical rhinoplasty done? With major nose enhancements usually requiring surgery, it is understandable to question how the non-surgical method is done and if it can provide good results. Based on a patient’s individual goals and needs for their nose, a non-surgical rhinoplasty may offer a satisfactory result. Dr. Jonov performs non-surgical nose jobs on a regular basis. While the specific technique and locations can vary due to patient variations, in general, patients can expect a non-surgical rhinoplasty to be injections of dermal fillers into specific areas of the nose. Commonly, fillers are injected into the bridge of the nose to fill in unwanted humps or divots.  The entire procedure usually does not take more than a half hour to complete and does not require any sedation. Topical anesthetics are applied if requested. Dr. Jonov will inject the filler into the locations of your nose that will give you the result you want. Non-surgical rhinoplasties are a great way to try out possible and future surgical results.  The answer to the question: how is non-surgical rhinoplasty done?, is fairly straightforward. It is done with targeted injections of dermal fillers to enhance the nose. To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Bellevue: Surgical Lasers vs. Non-Surgical Lasers

By | Laser Skin Resurfacing | No Comments
Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that removes dead skin and the upper layers of skin to create smoother, better quality skin. There are two main methods for laser skin resurfacing: surgical and non-surgical. Surgical laser skin resurfacing is often performed with a CO2 laser. Non-surgical resurfacing typically uses a non-ablative CO2 laser. What are the differences between surgical lasers vs. non-surgical lasers?   The main difference between surgical and non-surgical lasers is that surgical lasers are ablative while non-surgical lasers are usually non-ablative. Ablative lasers remove the top layer of the skin to stimulate the creation of new skin. This boosts collagen production and can aid in the repair of damaged skin. In contrast, non-ablative lasers use a more targeted approach that addresses the lower levels of skin. Like surgical lasers, this also stimulates collagen and elastin production.   The approach that will best fit your skin and goals is best discussed during a consultation at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery. Patients who will benefit best from surgical CO2 lasers may have extensive skin damage from the sun or age. While those who want to treat the early signs of aging may benefit more from non-surgical lasers.   To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

Cheek Implants Kirkland: Are Cheek Implants Safe?

By | Face, Cheek Augmentation | No Comments
High cheekbones have become a common goal among plastic surgery patients. Whether patients want a slimmer looking face or the “apple” appearance to the cheeks, cheek implants are one way to achieve this appearance. With a common non-surgical option, cheek filler, many patients opt for this procedure instead. However, cheek fillers cannot always achieve the results patients are looking for and are not a permanent solution. When deciding on cheek implants, patients often wonder: are cheek implants safe? Cheek implants are often designed to match each patient’s anatomy and made of non-toxic materials such as silicone. This makes the rejection rate low and steady with roughly any other implant procedure. As a surgical procedure, the cheek augmentation surgery itself comes with basic surgical risks like infection, unsatisfactory results, fluid collection, and scarring. Overall, chronic complications or risks are rare, especially when you choose a capable surgeon like Dr. Jonov.  Overall, the answer to the question: are cheek implants safe?, is yes. In good surgical candidates, surgical cheek augmentation is a safe procedure with few risks. Dr. Jonov can evaluate your individual risk during a consultation.

Rhinoplasty Bellevue Questions: Rhinoplasty Side Effects?

By | Face, Rhinoplasty | No Comments
A nose job is one of the most common facial plastic surgeries performed in the United States. It also is one of the most popular plastic surgeries among men. A rhinoplasty can alter the shape, size, and projection of the nose. The procedure can also address certain features such as humps, bumps, or the size of the nostrils. Prior to surgery, patients often ask about rhinoplasty side effects. What are they and how long do they last?   Rhinoplasty procedures are performed under general anesthesia which is associated with side effects like nausea, sore throat, vomiting, muscle aches, and many others. If a patient experiences side effects like these, they should subside in about a day. Longer term side effects or complications are possible, but extremely rare in good surgical candidates. It is important to discuss if you have experienced side effects or complications from general anesthesia in the past.    Like any surgical procedure, a Bellevue rhinoplasty comes with some side effects. Dr. Jonov will prescribe pain medications following surgery to keep you comfortable. Swelling, redness, and bruising can occur. Some patients may have black eyes depending on the extent of the procedure. Rhinoplasty side effects should subside in 7-10 days. While some residual swelling may remain, it should be virtually unnoticeable.   To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
