One of the more common reasons for dissatisfaction following rhinoplasty is the presence of a small depression. These often occur during the postoperative healing phase and may be palpable or even visible. Other imperfections which may occur include dips, divots, bumps, thickening, and convexity. Dr. Clevens often corrects these imperfections in the office setting at his Melbourne, Florida practice with a steroid or cortisone injection performed with a topical anesthetic cream. These medications can flatten bumps and raise depressions with no downtime and at a much lower cost. Dr. Clevens can even demonstrate the outcome with a temporary saline or sterile salt water solution which will instantly show the desired effect but disappear within an hour or so. This “trial” treatment can help you to determine if a non-surgical injection can indeed be an acceptable alternative to revision rhinoplasty for you.
