In Aesthetic Clinics the world over, nose jobs – or more correctly – non-surgical rhinoplasty have become by far, the most popular forms of aesthetic treatment.
Surgical Rhinoplasty itself provides a permanent solution for many physical nasal defects – but it requires considerable recovery time, and is expensive – which puts it out of reach for most people who would like to improve the shape of their noses, quickly and economically.
That is, until aesthetic doctors began to get creative with Nose Fillers
Today, non-surgical nose jobs that use fillers to shape the nose are on the rise. Just a few years ago it was a relatively new procedure, but now the in-office treatment is becoming more commonplace.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty isn’t all that different from getting fillers in other areas of the face. The procedure can be done in as little as 15 minutes after having an initial consultation.
What to Expect?
The aesthetic doctor will prep the area with a topical anaesthetic. Filler is then injected.
Once it’s been injected, the filler will then be massaged, to mould it into place.
Filler will be injected into various spots on the nose depending on what problem you are trying to correct. Many people use non-surgical rhinoplasty to increase the height of their bridge or reshape the tip.
Types of fillers commonly used for non-surgical nose jobs include:
The Benefits and Drawbacks of Getting a Liquid Nose Job
It’s Reversible – If you opt for a Juvederm or Restylane non-surgical nose job you can actually reverse the procedure if you don’t like the results, or if you decide you want to do a surgical rhinoplasty procedure. A hyaluronidase enzyme can be used to dissolve either of the fillers within hours.
No down time – If you have surgical rhinoplasty you won’t be going to work the next day. There is a considerable amount of bruising and swelling for a week or more. With non-surgical rhinoplasty there’s a little redness right after the procedure, and possibly some light bruising and swelling for just 5 to 7 days afterward.
You can try out a different nose before committing to surgery – Many people are now using non-surgical nose jobs as a stepping stone to having surgical rhinoplasty. While the results won’t be exactly the same, the liquid version can give people an idea of what they would look like with a straighter nose, less nasal show or a more defined tip.
It’s not permanent – results are quoted to be typically the same as other fillers, around 9 to 12 months. However, because there is very little movement in the nose, some physicians say the results can last up to two years.
