Dr Oz: Liquid Rhinoplasty & Frown Lines
Dr Oz’s Show on 5 Cutting Edge Fixes for Facial Flaws started with a segment on how to fix Acne Scars, Raccoon Eyes and how to shape your eyebrows (click here to read about these three procedures: Dr Oz Face Flaws). Then Doctor Oz brought Dr Mathew Avram and Dr Keri Colen to demonstrate two more non-surgical procedures: a Frown Line Restylane Treatment and a Liquid Rhinoplasty, Non-Surgical Nose Job!
Dr Oz: Frown Line Fix with Restylane
Dr Oz’s first guest was Debbie, a 52-year-old lady who wanted to fix her Anger Frown Lines. She said that she used to look happy and was even in beauty pageants, but now her Frown Lines are very defined and she wants to remove the angry look from her face. Dr Mathew Avram said that as we age, we lose volume in our skin and our face loses its structure. This Frown Fix is something that cannot be done with Botox or Lasers, but again, it uses Restylane which is mainly Hyaluronic Acid. The Frown Line Procedure lasts 9-12 months and there is no recovery time, which is always very nice.
Dr Mathew Avram applied alcohol to the area and started to inject to Restylane into Debbie’s Frown Line. She said it only hurt a little bit, but was nothing unbearable. Within seconds of the Restylane injection, the Frown Line had already improved dramatically. Dr Avram said that this Frown Line Procedure costs $600 – $1100 depending on how much filler you need. He always shows his clients the result after doing just one side of their face, because then you can really see the huge difference from one side of the face to the other. Debbie said that she loves it and was thrilled that she could get these results without surgery.
Dr Oz: Nose Bump Procedure or Liquid Rhinoplasty
Dr Oz’s final guest was Kim, who is 29-years-old, and she hates the bump on her nose. She said the front of her face does not bother her, but that she hates her profile. She always tries to angle her face so that people cannot see the bump. She considered Rhinoplasty or a Nose Job, but is scared to do something as permanent as surgery.
Dr Kari Colen did a Liquid Rhinoplasty procedure on Kim where a filler is injected into the nose. It is immediate and temporary, so if you do not like it, you can easily reverse it. On average, the Liquid Rhinoplasty costs $8 00 – $1000 (depending on the filler that you use), there is no recovery time, it lasts around 6 months and it takes 10 minutes or less to do the procedure. Dr Colen said to camouflage the Nose Bump, first you draw a small circle above the Nose Bump and below it to show where you need to inject the filler to make the bump disappear. Then she began injected the filler into Kim’s nose. Kim said it just felt like a little pressure but did not hurt at all. Even after filling in just one area on Kim’s nose, her nose already looked remarkably straight compared to the before picture. Kim told Dr Oz that her sister had a Nose Job to fix her Nose Bump, but that with this Liquid Rhinoplasty, she just might be able to avoid a Nose Job!
