In this close up we see that the front face of her right ear looks
unnaturally smooth in the before picture. Some of the normal folds and hills and valleys of the
ear cartilage are missing, and the lack of those folds contributes
to the ear's position out away from the head. One of the tasks of the
otoplasty operation is to recreate those folds by placing sutures that force the cartilage into a folded position.

Am I a candidate for non surgical rhinoplasty?
So I've been considering rhinoplasty, but I am much more in favor of a non invasive non surgical procedure. I was wondering if I would be a candidate and benefit for a nonsurigical nose job
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Nope, nope, nope. No non-surgical rhinoplasty for you
I'll throw my hat in the ring with the other physician posters who said not to have a non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Understanding non-surgical rhinoplasty is easy. Stuff is injected into the nose; the nose looks bigger. If you want your nose to look smaller, non-surgical rhinoplasty is the wrong approach.
In fact, non-surgical rhinoplasty is reasonable only in the very very rarest of cases -- usually after previous surgery, when a persistent dent that cannot be further corrected with surgery can be lifted with a tiny, tiny amount of filler, like 1/100 of a cc or so. It's a way to salvage a minuscule improvement when further surgery is not a good idea.
Also, in general, you shouldn't have a non-surgical rhinoplasty from a doctor who does not regularly do *standard* rhinoplasty. If the doctor *only* does *non-surgical* rhinoplasties, then he likely will recommend one to you when I wouldn't think it reasonable.
