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.

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.
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.

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.
Facial feminization surgery is a procedure that many transgender women choose to undergo to create feminine facial features. Every surgery will differ based on patient expectations, goals, and anatomy. Before the procedure, many patients wonder: what procedures are performed during a facial feminization?When looking at the major differences between masculine features and feminine features, the most common areas addressed during facial feminization are the forehead and chin. Men tend to have wider foreheads and longer chins. Therefore, a brow lift and chin reduction sometimes feature during the procedure. A bullhorn lip lift can also be performed during facial feminization since men often have thinner upper lips than women. The bullhorn lip lift exposes more of the upper lip to create a more feminine appearance. It also shortens the distance between the nose and upper lip.While every patient’s face will have unique needs, other procedures that Dr. Jonov may perform as part of a facial feminization procedure including: rhinoplasty, tracheal shave, midface lift, brow reduction, cheek implants, and chin implant surgery. After a consultation with Dr. Jonov, he can determine if you are a candidate for the best facial feminization Bellevue offers. To schedule a consultation call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online

Otoplasty, or ear pinning, refers to any surgery that addresses the shape, size, or position of the ears. It most commonly pins ears that stick out. Most patients experience a fairly easy recovery and find that they can return to the majority of their daily activities within a week or so. Bellevue plastic surgeon, Dr. Craig Jonov, details the timeline of an otoplasty recovery.Immediately following surgery, you may feel groggy and nauseous from the anesthesia. You will go home the same day to rest and begin recovery. Dr. Jonov will likely provide a headband to wear, as this will help reduce swelling. The day of surgery you should rest. In the days following surgery, many patients find that that can get up and around. Dr. Jonov will prescribe pain medications and antibiotics to keep you comfortable. It is important to avoid touching or scratching the ears or incisions. You may experience side effects such as swelling, pain while chewing (a soft diet may be required), and redness. These side effects should subside within a week or so. A week after surgery, patients often return to work. Most, if not all swelling, has resolved. At this point, persistent side effects can be covered with makeup. The ears should begin to settle into their new position, although it will take a few months to see the final results. Overall, most patients find an otoplasty recovery comfortable.To schedule a consultation with Dr. Craig Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
On the surface, a breast lift and breast reduction sound like extraordinary different procedures. However, when looking at the incisions and techniques used, the two plastic surgeries look almost identical. Both surgeries remove excess skin and fat, may reposition the nipple, and often result in more lifted breasts. What is the difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction?The answer to the difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction comes down to the goals of each procedure and the reasons for operating. A breast lift primarily targets sagging of the breasts and changes in shape due to age, breastfeeding, and volume/weight loss in the breasts. A breast reduction typically treats overly large breasts by reducing the size. Often, this can alleviate symptoms like back pain and rashes. In short, a breast lift mainly addresses the shape and a breast reduction mainly addresses the size. While similar methods are used, the two procedures treat different concerns and conditions.Additionally, breast lift patients are typically women who have had children and experienced volume loss due to motherhood and age. Breast reduction is more common in younger patients who genetically have larger breasts. Therefore, breast occurs on breasts of all sizes, while breast reduction only treats breasts too large for a patient’s frame.To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
Like any surgical procedure, plastic surgeries require rest and recovery time. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, our routine post-operative instructions require a patient to have a caregiver for the first 24 hours after surgery. There are many reasons The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery considers caregivers after plastic surgery a necessity. Firstly, major complications from surgery are most likely to happen in the first 24 hours. This is due to many factors including, complications associated with general anesthesia, and the body returning to normal function following surgery. While major complications rarely happen, it is important that they are handled well if they do. Secondly, patients often do not have full range of movement and experience pain following surgery. Caregivers can ensure the patient rests adequately and is taken care of. They may also need help moving around to prevent blood clots or use the bathroom. Finally, caregivers provide vital emotional support. Plastic surgery causes a variety of emotions in patients and it is important they feel supported. While Dr. Jonov and The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery team support patients as much as possible at post-op appointments, having a trusted person with them following surgery can make recovery more bearable.

Liposuction encompasses the most invasive aspect of the surgery in most cases.Non-surgical BBLs have become more popular and usually do not require general anesthesia like a surgical Brazilian butt lift.
