A non-surgical nose job is a suitable procedure if you are looking to make a small modification to the appearance of your nose. You will be able to improve the appearance of dorsal humps, bridges, tips of the nose, crooked noses, flat or low bridges, or asymmetrical noses.
The non-surgical nose job involves injecting dermal fillers into the nose to achieve the desired look. This can help to remove bumps, as well as make the nose look thinner and more refined.
You will be a good candidate for a non-surgical nose job if you:
Those who are wanting to reduce the size of their nose or are wishing to fix breathing difficulties will not be suitable for a non-surgical nose job.
Before undergoing a non-surgical nose job, you will have a consultation with one of the surgeons, who will discuss your reasons for wanting to undergo the procedure. They will also assess your nose and see if you are an eligible candidate, or whether you would be more suitable for a surgical rhinoplasty.
The non-surgical rhinoplasty is a relatively straightforward procedure.
The dermal fillers will be injected into the nose at various points to achieve the desired look. The exact location of the injections will vary from person to person, depending on the structure of the nose and the end outcome.
Once the filler is injected into the nose, the surgeon may massage the nose to ensure the filler sits in the right position.
You will be awake throughout the entire procedure and will be able to notice the results right away.
The non-surgical nose job will take around 30 minutes to complete.
Unlike a surgical rhinoplasty, the results of a non-surgical nose job will not last forever. Typically, the fillers will last between 9 to 12 months. Factors such as metabolic rate and physical activity will also have an impact on how long the fillers will last.
As this is a non-surgical procedure, there is a very short recovery period.
You may notice some bruising or swelling, which will subside after five days.
We recommend avoiding putting any pressure on the nose for at least five days. You will also have to avoid wearing any glasses for two weeks, as this may impact the filter and change the appearance of the nose.
You will have to avoid sleeping on your side or front; make sure you sleep on your back for at least five days.

If you would like to maintain the appearance of your new nose, you will need to have more fillers after this point.
Unlike a surgical rhinoplasty, if you do not like the appearance of your nose after a non-surgical nose job, it is easy to reverse.
You can wait for the fillers to naturally dissolve. However, if you do not wish to wait that long, you can have injections which will dissolve the filler. This will leave your nose looking as it did prior to having the dermal fillers.
