Non-surgical nose jobs are a recent and modern alternative for patients who are interested in improving the appearance of their nose without invasive surgery and the recovery and downtime required for a surgical rhinoplasty but who still want aesthetic, satisfying results.
A few of the benefits of a non-surgical nose job are:
- faster healing times
- instant results
- little to no pain
- little chance of long-term scarring
- no down-time
- no nosebleeds
- no persistent swelling
- cost is 1/10th of traditional rhinoplasty
How can you do a nose job without surgery?
Rhinoplasties can be accomplished without surgery through the use of injectables like BOTOX®, Radiesse® or Bellafill® to contour and shape the nose. The filler is injected into preselected areas of the nose to help camouflage bumps and to shape the tip and give volume where needed. The procedure is relatively painless and is accomplished from start to finish in just a few minutes.
While some patients are concerned that adding filler will make their noses look larger, this is not true. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is about enhancing the contours of the nose. When this is done, the resulting appearance of the nose is simply more aesthetic and smooth, not larger.
Who is a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty or an instant nose job?
People who want to significantly reduce the size of their nose or those with major nasal deformities are not candidates for an instant nose job and would need to get satisfactory results. Non-surgical rhinoplasty has no effect on nasal breathing because it involves only injections that do not affect the breathing passages.
Other good candidates for a non-surgical rhinoplasty are those who have already undergone surgical rhinoplasty but are not completely satisfied with their results. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can produce the original result intended without requiring an additional invasive nose surgery.
Instant rhinoplasty can be more more precise than surgical rhinoplasty in some cases as it more directly affects the external shape of the nose so very detailed adjustments to the contour of the nose are possible.
Non-Surgical Nose Job Procedure
Patients are fully awake during the procedure, so they will experience no negative effects of general anesthesia or sedation. Patients are also given a mirror to watch every stage of their procedure and offer feedback throughout the process to ensure they are satisfied with their results. Once the procedure is complete, patients can return to work or their normal routine the same day. Results of a non-surgical rhinoplasty last about two years. At that time, a touch-up would be required to maintain results.
