What is a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is becoming increasingly popular, with many people opting for this procedure instead of a traditional nose job. You might hear it referred to as a ‘liquid nose job’ or even a ’15-minute nose job’.
If you’d like to make a significant change to your appearance without an operation, non-surgical rhinoplasty might be your best option. Read ahead to learn more about this simple procedure and determine if it’s right for you. Simply put, you don’t have to ‘go under the knife’ to achieve the dramatic results you’re looking for or get the ‘new nose’ you desire. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a dermal filler into your nose to change its shape. It tends to last around six months, allowing you to assess the results of a more permanent procedure.
How does it work?
A cosmetic doctor will inject dermal filler ingredients (often hyaluronic acid or another gel) into the parts of your nose you wish to change. In some cases, they might also add anti-wrinkle injectables, such as Botox.
After an initial consultation, the doctor might apply a topical anaesthetic (if they deem it necessary). Next, they’ll inject the filler into the areas you’ve discussed, and you’re done! The entire appointment will be between 15 minutes to 45 minutes long. In the week after the procedure, the filler settles into your skin and gradually changes its shape. Within a week to ten days, you’ll be able to see the final results.
Who is suitable for a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is ideal for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of lumps and bumps in their nose or make it more symmetrical. If you think your nose is too ‘pointy’ or angular, non-surgical rhinoplasty can be a great option. It allows you to ‘try out’ the results from a surgical procedure without the permanent commitment.
It’s ideal if you want to address the following:
- Small bumps on the bridge of your nose
- Reducing the prominence of the tip of your nose
- Add more volume to your nose
- Lift your nose tip
- Camouflage a large bump on the bridge of your nose
- Change the shape of your nostrils
How long do the results last?
In most cases, the results of non-surgical rhinoplasty last around 8-18 months. If you don’t like the way it looks, the filler will gently dissolve, and you’ll soon be back to your old nose. On the other hand, if you like your new appearance, you can schedule further procedures or consider a more permanent surgical nose job.
How much does a non-surgical rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure varies based on the clinic you choose and the amount of filler you need. Expect to pay between £280-450 for non-surgical rhinoplasty from a reputable clinic.
