"Amazing Liquid Rhinoplasty! - I was unhappy with my facial profile so I went to Dr. Layliev for a liquid rhinoplasty(nonsurgical nose job). He listened to all my concerns, and discussed exactly how he would mold the filler to smooth the bridge of my nose. At the end he suggested adding some to the tip to give it a little turned up look, which I elected to do, and LOVE. He gave me my dream nose, all with filler, no..."- L. / RealSelf / Sep 28, 2018

"I went to Cherie the other day to get lip fillers and honestly she was amazing. I normally use a cannula and I wasn't sure i was getting the results i wanted with that technique. She spoke to me about using a different technique which i was nervous about since I've never used it but I trusted her and my lips came out beautifully!! Not only that but i get nervous around needles and started to feel weak and Cherrie and Carrie came back in with ice packs and ginger ale For me to feel better. I am so pleased with the way my lips look and my experience at Romanelli!"- A.L. / Yelp / Nov 21, 2019
Ideal candidates for nipple correction surgery are men and women who have oversized, malformed, or inverted nipples. Typically, those with inverted nipples are either born with this condition or develop this trait later on in life (specifically after certain medical conditions like breast cancer). Overly large or mishaped nipples can be caused by genetics or can develop after breastfeeding. Regardless of the cause of your condition, our team can perform a thorough assessment to determine if you are a great candidate for nipple correction.
Nipple correction surgery is performed under local anesthetic and usually only takes about 30 minutes. Since each patient case is unique, the procedure techniques will vary. Typically, an incision is made around the nipple to divide and separate the ducts. This process allows the nipples to sit naturally. Once the ideal contour is achieved, dissolvable stitches will be used to hold the nipple in place. The results will yield a more forward and natural projection of the nipples.
What to Expect
Patients may experience some mild discomfort or swelling in the treatment area but these symptoms should subside within 1 – 2 days. Any pain may also be eased with over-the-counter medication such as acetaminophen. Optimal healing usually takes a few weeks and reveals a perkier appearance. The level of scarring will be dependent upon your specific condition and the surgical technique used during your procedure. Our highly trained and skilled surgeons will do their best to make incisions strategically to conceal scarring as much as possible.
