What Is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
A non-surgical nose job is how to make your nose look smaller without the additional concern. A non-surgical nose job works the way its name suggests ― without the use of surgery. As the procedure is surgery-free, there are no incisions, general anesthesia, or lengthy amounts of recovery time needed. Instead of fixing the skin, cartilage, or bone in your nose, the process involves the use of fillers. Surgeons inject liquid filler in specified areas in the nose to create the desired size and shape. Thus being the reason non-surgical nose jobs are also known as liquid rhinoplasty. As the procedure adds more volume into one’s nose, it is best used for those wanting to straighten a curved or crooked nose, balancing it out and making the nose appear more symmetrical.
An Overview of the Procedure
A non-surgical nose job procedure takes no more than 20 minutes. It starts out with the doctor numbing the designated areas, then inserting the filler to contour the nose. The filler can be placed above and below bumps, between the eyes, and in the tip of the nose. Anywhere that helps create a more symmetrical look. Once the procedure is completed, you are able to carry on with the rest of your day with no recovery time or need to hide side effects; Only in occasional circumstances do any kind of bruises or swelling appear.
Non-surgical nose jobs are much more painless, and less permanent. Therefore, if you are unsatisfied with the look of your new nose, the injected filler can be dissolved to give you your former appearance back. In addition, non-surgical nose jobs are also much less expensive. As the procedure requires a fraction of the resources of a rhinoplasty (i.e., no need for anesthesia, surgery rooms, antibiotics, etc.), the average cost for a non-surgical nose job is only a fraction of the price.
Types of Filler
Juvederm: Juvederm is a common filler used for non-surgical nose jobs. Using hyaluronic acid, Juvederm fills out spaces in the skin to create a fuller appearance. The results of Juvederm typically last up to six months, however, occasional touch ups can extend the life of the results.
Restylane: Restylane is a gel-like substance providing instant fullness effects. The hyaluronic acid composed filler lasts much longer than various filler alternatives, with results lasting up to one year.
While fillers may be a more common approach to creating a different appearance of one’s nose, there are other alternatives and approaches to changing the look without the use of surgery.
Fat Grafting: Fat grafting is similar to filler in the sense that it injects product into a specified area. Fat grafting, other times known as fat injection or fat transfer, involves transferring small amounts of fat from one part of the patient’s body to another. Fat grafting can be conducted in one’s face to create more fullness around the nose, and in turn, making the nose appear smaller.
