Non Surgical Rhinoplasty and Pain Control

June 2, 2008
Hi Dr. I'm going to have some Restyline injected in the bridge of my nose. The last time I had it done the Dr. numbed the nose with injections on each side of my nose and under the tip. Those injections caused me such emotional distress, the needles were huge. I was wondering if I would really need them to have the Restyline injected in the bridge. Before he did the tip as well, this time he is not. Is it really that painful in the bridge that I couldn't get away with some other kind of measure for pain? Thanks so much for your input.


hi,
the bridge really does not hurt.
you should not need anything more than some good numbing cream and ice just before the injection.
i never use numbing injections to the side of the nose - its more hassle than its worth.
in terms of the tip - i dont usually need anything more than numbing cream and ice. i rarely need a dental block. yes, the tip is sensitive, but injecting the tip takes a few seconds and then its over, whereas the numbing shot makes your lip numb for 3 hours.
are you getting good results with restylane for the tip? i find that i cannot get that much of a lift with restylane - i have to use radiesse to get good results.
also, if you know that you like the effect of the filler in the nose, artefill is a permanent filler that i am now converting my patients to. this way, they can get it done and not worry about it again.
hope that helps
