Are you happy with the shape of your nose? If so, great. We’re happy for you. But there are many people who simply don’t like the shape of their nose. So what can you do if you want to make a small change to your nose?
Traditional nose job surgery seems a little radical and risky, but other options may be worth considering. Rhinoplasty (technical term for 'nose jobs') is one of the most common and desired cosmetic procedures, but understandably many patients are frightened by the potential complications and the risk of unfavourable cosmetic results. We now have more and more options for performing non-surgical procedures to the nose.
What is a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Sometimes it is called the '15-minute nose job' for its quick procedure time and its instantaneous results - or you may hear it referred to as 'the liquid nose job' as the treatment involves only dermal filler injections to reshape the nose.
Firstly an anaesthetic cream is applied to the nose to aid in an almost painless procedure. The dermal filler is then injected in small amounts in precise locations of the skin to ensure total control and for the perfect finish. For almost all patients, there is essentially no downtime, and depending on the filler selected, the results can generally last from one to two years.
Is a non-surgical rhinoplasty for me?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an extremely adaptable procedure and can treat a number of different issues. In many circumstances, it could offer a better alternative than surgery for patients (though it is important to be realistic about expectations).
It can be used for those who may have a noticeable bump or kink in their nose, asymmetry they wish to be corrected, or even a small nose that needs building up.
What are the advantages of having non-surgical nose reshaping over the traditional rhinoplasty?
Having a non-surgical rhinoplasty means less risk, fewer side effects and it is great a non-invasive alternative to traditional rhinoplasty. For the right patient, it is safer, faster and pain-free, compared with surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty saves time, money, and pain.
It is an excellent, affordable option for people who want to change the shape of their nose without the stress of surgery. Results are instant; there is no excessive downtime, no general anaesthetic and no prolonged healing. Unlike a traditional rhinoplasty the results aren't permanent so if there was a chance that you didn’t like the effects this would be easy to correct.
Are there any side effects?
Following the procedure, you should see great results immediately, however, some minor side effects can occur leaving you feeling a little tender. Some side effects include redness, swelling and bruising but these are never very serious and they will resolve in a matter of days.
And finally remember, non-surgical rhinoplasty should always be carried out by a medical professional.
