Non Surgical Rhinoplasty by Dr. Kassir.
Dr. Kassir went Instagram LIVE! with his patient and performed a Non Surgical Rhinoplasty.
it literally took only a few minutes with no pain! No surprise since Dr.Kassir pioneered this procedure in 2006.
Our lovely patient here had a previous Rhinoplasty years ago in Mexico and developed what’s called a “Saddle Nose”. It happens when too much cartilage and bone is removed and the nose loses support and caves in causing saddling. It can also be associated with nasal trauma and cocaine use. Whatever the cause, it is characterized by a loss of height of the nose,( bridge of the nose sags in the middle) which causes a collapse.
An excellent way to treat a “Saddle Nose” is with a surgical Rhinoplasty Revision; in her case we treated it nonsurgically with fillers so she can look better at her son’s wedding in 3 weeks and will plan a surgical revision in the future.
