Non-Surgical Nose Job
What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasy?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a simple alternative to surgical rhinoplasty. It is performed using injections of dermal filler to reshape the nose. While traditional rhinoplasty is among the most frequently requested cosmetic procedures, many are turned off by the potential complications and risks involved in surgery.
The non-surgical nose job is an affordable, effective method for individuals who are looking to make minor to moderate changes to the shape of their noses. Results are immediately visible; there is no downtime, no lengthy healing and recovery time, and no risks associated with general anesthetic or invasive surgery.
The traditional nose job procedure, even for correction of minor imperfections, requires at least an hour or more in surgery, extensive bruising, swelling, pain and discomfort with results becoming fully apparent only after six months to a year.
The non-invasive, non-surgical alternative using injectable fillers can alter the appearance of bumps, drooping, asymmetry or other minor abnormalities safely and rapidly without the aforementioned drawbacks.
How does a Non-Surgical Nose Job work?
After your thorough consultation, during which your goals and expectations will be fully addressed, your doctor will begin the procedure. A topical numbing agent will be applied to the area of your nose and surrounding area to be treated.
Next, the dermal filler best suited to your needs will be administered, filling fill depressions and evening out planes and surfaces. Once better symmetry is achieved, your nose will appear less prominent and your face will have more aesthetic appeal.
Throughout the procedure, your doctor will give you opportunities to examine yourself in the mirror to evaluate the changes in progress. Your input will be used to guide the changes as they happen.
What happens after the procedure?
There is no downtime after the procedure. Patients almost always continue on with their regular daily activities.
How long do the results of the Non-Surgical Nose Job last?
The results last approximately six months to one year. A less permanent result is one of the benefits of this treatment since the results can be fine-tuned or changed according to your personal taste, fashion, or changes to the shape of your face over time.
