Should You Try a Non-Surgical Nose Job?

Tina West January 25, 2019 0 comments 0

Whether you are bothered by a small dorsal hump or simply unwilling or unable to undergo an invasive procedure, a non-surgical rhinoplasty can offer you a safe and effective way to reshape your nose.

In fact, this dermal filler treatment can be performed over your lunch break, without pain, incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

Best of all, it produces almost-instant improvement in nasal contours and symmetry to enhance your facial structure.

If you would like to improve the appearance of your nose, continue reading to learn whether a non-surgical nose job is right for you.

What Is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?

A non-surgical nose job, often referred to as a liquid rhinoplasty, is an injectable treatment that reshapes the nose and improves facial harmony.

It typically involves a temporary hyaluronic acid filler, like Restylane or Juvederm, but in certain instances, a more permanent dermal filler, such as Bellafill, may be used.

What Concerns Can be Treated with a Non-Surgical Nose Job?

Patients that would like to refine their nasal appearance and correct any bothersome irregularities may wish to consider a non-surgical nose job.  The treatment takes just 20 minutes and can achieve many of the same benefits as a traditional rhinoplasty, including:

  • Improve nasal symmetry
  • Soften sharp angles
  • Conceal bumps and imperfections
  • Straighten nasal bridge
  • Lift a droopy nasal tip

Despite these advantages, a liquid rhinoplasty cannot provide permanent results or reduce the size of the nose in the same way as a traditional rhinoplasty.

How Is the Treatment Performed?

On the day of your non-surgical rhinoplasty, a topical anesthetic will be applied to numb your nose and improve your comfort during the procedure. Then your provider will precisely inject dermal filler into various sites on the nose and shape it until desired effects are achieved.

Are There Any Side Effects or Recovery Associated with a Non-Surgical Nose Job?

In the hands of a leading injector like Dr. West, a non-surgical nose job is an extremely safe treatment with virtually no side effects or downtime.

Immediately after treatment, you may note some slight swelling, but are free to return to work and resume normal activities right away.
