5 Minute Nose Jobs

Surgery-Free Rhinoplasty in Canada

— May 3, 2007 — Luxury
Five minute nose-job, eh? You betcha! Best of all, you won’t have to break the bank or your nose.

Stephen Mulholland, a Toronto plastic surgeon has gained widespread popularity for his “injectable rhinoplasty” – that means no more surgery to fix that schnozz. Anyone who has researched nose jobs, or is familiar with TV makeover shows, knows that in order to reconstruct a nose—particularly the bridge of the nose—that the bone must be broken before it is reshaped.

Dr. Mulholland lets patients forgo this torturous $4,000-$8,000 step. After freezing the flesh in the nose, he injects either Restylane or Juevederm, then reshapes it using only his hands. Without any surgery, he can entirely eliminate bumps in the nose bridge.

Restylane and Juvederm are popular in cosmetic surgery, but are most commonly used as fillers to permeate fine lines and winkles. Mulholland was the first to use this technique for rhinoplasty which is gaining fame rapidly. He has taught many other North American surgeons too as demand is rising.

Nobody wants to look older these days, and while the procedures can get costly, these injections make it possible to avoid the six to eight months of swelling and bruising that follow surgery. To top it off, there’s no need to wear a nasal splint—a dead give away that you’ve had work done.

“Individuals seek me out because they don’t want surgery,” Mulholland said. “They just don’t want the risk or the recovery or the stigma of surgery or the financial commitment.”

You can walk in during your lunch break and be back in the office without anyone knowing your afternoon “Starbucks runs” are really the secret to your youthful perfection. It may be the most expensive coffee break you take though: think $1,000-$1,500.

The most incredible part is that patients no longer have to commit to their new look. Restylane injections last about six months. If you don’t opt for round two, you can have your old honker back. On the other hand, if you’re happy with your new profile, recent formulas can provide results that last up to 10 years.

Think there’s no hope for your beak? Mulholland works magic! “If a nose is crooked, I can add on one side to create the illusion of a straight nose.” The man can do it all folks, for less money, less pain, no bruising, swelling or the nose splints that accompany traditional rhinoplasty.

Now you can fix your nose temporarily, and if you’re pleased with the new look and compliments you’re getting, you can still opt for cosmetic surgery—without any surprises when your new snout is revealed.
