Utah Facial Plastics is known for beauty transformation with both surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty options here in Utah. With the nose being the center of the face, it’s an important facial feature for balance and overall appearance. For many patients with nasal cosmetic concerns hoping to avoid surgery, a non-surgical rhinoplasty is often a great option.
The Utah Facial Plastics Difference
Utah Facial Plastics currently offers non-surgical rhinoplasty with the use of dermal fillers. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be a riskier procedure and it takes the right candidate for this treatment to be an option. It is more of a temporary option to treating irregularities in the nose, as rhinoplasty surgery will treat long term concerns and is a safer route to go overall.
Since we offer both surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty options, Drs. Henstrom and Thompson will recommend the procedure option that is best to achieve your goals. Every patient is different in regards to facial features and personal desires which is why it’s best to schedule a consultation at 801-776-2220 to learn more about what is right for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is achieved by injecting hyaluronic acid filler to certain areas of the nose as determined by your injector. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin and therefore not foreign to the body. Overtime, it is absorbed by the body and can also be dissolved if a patient is unhappy with their injection results.
The cost depends on the filler recommended for your situation. Once a syringe is purchased, there are no additional charges to come back for more if not all of it is used at the initial treatment. How long a syringe will last for a patient is dependent on how much filler is needed with each treatment to achieve the desired results.
The cost typically ranges from $625 to $675 and patients can receive discounts through the Alle or Aspire program depending on the product used. We also offer monthly specials that often include discounts on fillers. See our monthly specials here.

With any injection, there is also the possibility of bruising and swelling but it’s typically minimal with ]non-surgical rhinoplasties at Utah Facial Plastics. Bruising and swelling subside within 2-7 days following treatment, although normal activities can be resumed immediately. To help minimize potential bruising, it’s recommended that patients avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, Vitamin E and Fish Oil 3-5 days prior to treatment. It helps to avoid alcohol 2-3 days before and after treatment as well.
It is important to know there are serious risks associated with non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures. You definitely need to see an experienced, well-trained injector who understands these risks and how to avoid them. Possible risks include asymmetries, necrosis (failure of blood supply to the skin) and potential blindness.
Undergoing a full facelift or MACSlift (mini facelift) is a process and one that is much more comfortable to undergo with the help of others who have gone through it before. Most patients initially have questions about scarring, recovery downtime, pain level, safety and results. Utah Facial Plastics offers a group of Facelift Friends who are here to help you through the process if you wish.
Our Facelift Friends program was developed by a group of facelift patients who felt it would have been nice to have others to speak and meet with who had been through surgery before. As helpful and knowledgeable as the UFP staff members are, most have not undergone facelift surgery. By combining their experience with multiple patients who have had surgery, you can rest assured you’re receiving the best support network available. They are here to meet beforehand or give you a call to answer all your questions from a personal experience.
