Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty in GREENWICH, CT & Westchester, NY – Dr. Sandra Margoles

Non-surgical nose jobs are growing in popularity, but if you’re dreaming of getting this procedure, you’ll need to use caution. While a skilled provider can safely create stunning results, filler injections into the nose pose significant risks if you have your injections performed by someone lacking education and skill. Dr. Sandra Margoles is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive training and experience using cosmetic injectables for facial rejuvenation and nasal reshaping. Patients can trust that they are receiving the best possible care when they come to Dr. Margoles for their nasal injections.

What Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Can and Cannot Do
A non-surgical rhinoplasty reshapes your nasal appearance by adding dermal filler to the nose and the surrounding tissues. A surgical rhinoplasty works differently. With surgery, Dr. Margoles can remove excess bone and tissue or build up areas of the nose using nasal implants. While dermal fillers can create a dramatic change in your nose’s appearance, there are limitations to this procedure.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty can’t achieve everything rhinoplasty can, but it can go a long way. This procedure can:
- Enhance the nasal tip
- Correct asymmetry
- Camouflage a nasal bump or depression
- Add height to a flattened nasal bridge
- Improve the nose’s appearance after injury or trauma
- Bring the nose into better harmony with other facial features
However, there are limitations to non-surgical rhinoplasty. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, this procedure cannot:
- Make the nose smaller (though it can help create the appearance of a smaller-looking nose)
- Correct breathing problems or airway obstructions
- Modify the bones and cartilage that create nasal structure
Non-surgical rhinoplasty uses the power of illusion to temporarily change the nose’s appearance. In contrast, surgical rhinoplasty changes the nose’s structure, rebuilding it from within.

As Dr. Margoles places the filler, she’ll massage your nose to mold it into the desired shape.
