Everything You Need to Know About the Non Surgical Nose Job

By  | 

Meet the procedure that’s helping thousands of people get their dream nose without going under the knife. The non-surgical nose job involves injecting dermal fillers into your nose bridge to straighten out bumps and even out the shape of your nose. It might not be as permanent as an actual nose job and does not reduce the size of your nose, but not having to go under anesthesia and taking time off work is priceless.

The cosmetic procedure involves using injectable fillers like hyaluronic acid (Restylane) and calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse) to fill the depressed areas on the nose, lifting the tip a little further, and evening out bumps on the bridge. The 30-45 minutes procedure does not involve general anesthesia, and  also doesn’t cause swelling or bruising of the nose hence favored by many.

Who makes a good candidate for the non-surgical nose job?

Anyone with a slightly crooked nose, a small nose that needs building up, a droopy- tip nose, a bumpy nose, or a hooked nose, would make a perfect candidate for the non-surgical nose job.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure involves three steps. The prep phase involves applying local anesthesia on the bridge of the nose. That step can take 15-30 minutes. Then, the injection of dermal fillers in small amounts occurs over the course of another 30-45 minutes. Any adjustments to nose shape will be done upon your request as you watch your nose transform. After all this is over, you’re ready to go home. No bruises, scars, or swelling.

How long does it last?

The results of the non-surgical nose job last anywhere between 6-12 months.  Regular follow-up treatments can be scheduled to make sure everything looks good.

Is it painful?

No, actually one of the reasons why the procedure is so popular is because it’s almost painless. Results are seen almost instantly.

Whether or not you decide on getting the non-surgical nose job, consult with your dermatologist before agreeing to inject fillers in your nose.
