While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity, the appearance may have been altered in an injury or during prior surgery.
Non -surgical rhinoplasty can improve the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence.
A major benefit of opting for non-surgical treatment is the ability to get beautiful results with no downtime. Most people are able to immediately resume their normal activities. the results of a nonsurgical nose job are long-lasting, yet non-permanent, and can be reversible if desired. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of a non-surgical rhinoplasty, you can simply wait for the effects of the injected filler to gradually fade or have it removed with a dissolving agent.
Nose size, in relation to the other facial structures
Nose width, at the bridge
Nose profile, with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
Nasal tip, that is too upturned
Is it right for me?
Non -surgical rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. Non -surgical rhinoplasty is a good option for you if:
Your facial growth is complete and you are 13 years of age or older
You are physically healthy
You stop smoking
You have specific yet realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance
Non -surgical rhinoplasty is best suited for those who are dealing with cosmetic issues resulting from lack of volume in the nose. For instance, a collapsed or pinched nose tip can be made fuller and look more balanced with your other facial features by injecting small amounts of filler into select areas. Bumps or dips in the nose bridge can also be smoothed out via this treatment.
How it works:
During non-surgical rhinoplasty, small amounts of a dermal filler such as Restylane or Juvederm is injected into the nose in order to strategically alter the shape and size of these areas. The fillers that are used in these treatments typically last between 18 months and 2 years. Although patients can look forward to long-lasting benefits, this is not a permanent procedure. Moreover, unlike surgical rhinoplasty, a non-surgical nose job is only capable of producing aesthetic enhancements, rather than making functional improvements such as improvement with any breathing issues.
Monday on KHOU Channel 11 at 10:00pm; Houston, Texas – Meet Rachel Busch and see her dramatic transformation following reconstructive surgery to restore her beauty following a brutal assault featuring KHOU reporter Lauren Talarico & Dr. Franklin Rose
Donated surgery gives Houston woman disfigured in brutal assault strength, new purpose in life
Rose found out about Busch’s case through her GoFundMe page, she said. “Several people in Houston saw my GoFundMe, knew my story and reached out to Dr. Rose. His office contacted me,” she said. Through his Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, which offers free reconstructive surgery to cancer survivors and abuse victims, Rose performed a seven-hour surgery, on Busch for free to help her regain her natural look.
“Now, 10 months later, I can put makeup on and feel like a normal human being again,” Busch said. “I feel like I hit the jackpot. Dr. Rose was so understanding. I feel happy to look in the mirror again.” Although Busch did not take from her GoFundMe account, she said she is still raising money for future surgeries.
“I am still missing bones in my face and teeth,” she said. On, Oct. 2, which was Rachel’s 35th birthday, more than 50 people gathered for her big post-plastic surgery reveal at the InterContinental Houston – Medical Center.
“It was surreal. At that moment, at the reveal, I knew that I would be okay,” Busch said. “That was the first time I did my hair and makeup since it all happened. I feel like a woman again. It was a magical night.”
After almost a year of emotional and physical pain caused by a traumatic incident, Dr. Franklin A. Rose performed multiple surgeries on Rachel Busch with the the support of The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation. This surgical transformation has offered her a new lease on life and the opportunity to return to being the beautiful women she is both on the inside and the outside after undergoing her year-long survivor’s journey.
On Wednesday, Rachel spoke publicly about the assault to be an advocate for others like her.
Busch suffered a skull fracture, shattered cheek bones, shattered teeth, a broken jaw and broken eye sockets.
Doctors were able to save her life but the injuries forever changed her appearance.
“There have been times where I have felt like I wish that he would’ve taken my life because everything that I’m going through is so hard,” she said.
But through it all she’s found a strength and now wants to help other survivors. Her story reached thousands of people, including Houston’s Dr. Franklin Rose, plastic surgeon and owner of Utopia Plastic Surgery and Medspa.
“I felt terribly sorry for this pretty girl,” said Rose. “Just as I do if I see a burn patient.”
Through the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, Rose offers his work for free to some patients, including Busch.
“What do I get out of it? Helping people,” said Rose.
In August, Busch underwent a seven-hour operation. She then spent five weeks healing before revealing the results to her family and friends at her birthday party.
Busch said she was with several friends in early January when she met Jones in a coffee shop. She described him as well-dressed, well-spoken and told her he was named as one of “Houston’s 30 under 30.”
Busch said she and Jones hung out twice in a group setting, the last time was Jan. 16. According to Busch, they had a few drinks, and Jones offered to let her crash on his couch. That’s when the attack occurred, according to police.
“People are looking at me and they are thinking, ‘Oh…Rachel is better now.’ But I’m not. It’s a 3- to 4-year recovery,” Busch said.
On Wednesday, Busch did spoke to those who attended her reveal party at the brand-new Houston Intercontinental Hotel organized by Kristen Cannon and decorated by Rexberry events.
Busch shared her story at the party and also advocate for others like her, which she plans to do more of as she continues to recover.
“There are so many women that feel like victims,” Busch told the room, “and they feel ashamed when something like this happens.”
She also took the opportunity to thank the community for the overwhelming support.
“In a time like this you really need people. You need people to stand by you and I have that, and I am really thankful,” Busch said to family and friends who gathered for an evening of celebration of her life and rebirth.
Busch needed extensive surgeries to reconstruct her face. Dr. Franklin Rose provided her plastic and reconstructive surgery pro-bono on behalf of The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation.
