‘The ten minute nose job…’
As a new alternative to nasal surgery (surgical rhinoplasty), the non surgical nose job involves injecting small amounts of hyaluronic acid filler around the nose, which works to alter its shape and leaves you with a straighter and more symmetrical look.
If it is the shape of your nose, rather than its size, that you are unhappy with, then non surgical dermal fillers could be the answer. Dermal fillers can be used in several ways to straighten nasal curves or hooks, or to plump out areas or dents that could have been caused naturally or in an accident.
A tip projection can also be carried out whereby filler is inserted into the tip of the nose, giving it a lifted appearance, which results in better symmetry and more defined contours of the nose.
The non surgical nose job will only take around ten minutes. Local anaesthetic cream will be applied for approximately 20 minutes’ prior. The procedure is less expensive than surgery and also prevents the side effects associated with it, such a scar formation and loosening of nasal cartilage.
The procedure is quick, painless and has no downtime. The results are immediate and can last up to one year. *
Why have Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping?
The nose is the face’s central feature, which means its appearance will have a significant effect on a person’s facial aesthetics. Since the shape, contours and tip of the nose strongly define its character, surgical alteration or reduction has been very popular in the past. However, due to the known complications, risks and recovery times that are associated with surgery, this is becoming less popular. The trend now is to have a more natural, un-operated appearance.
This is where the new, safe, non invasive alternative to nasal surgery comes in. The procedure involves injecting dermal fillers into the crucial areas around the nose, altering its overall shape and resulting in a straighter nose.
If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose, have an unattractive bump or dent, or are simply looking for symmetry, then dermal fillers can fix this. It is also ideal if you have had an accident which has resulted in a deformity, or if you have undergone nasal surgery and are not quite satisfied with the result.
When to choose a non surgical nose job:
- To correct Asymmetry
- Smooth contours of the nose
- To even out bumps and depressions
- To raise the bridge of the nose
- To raise the tip of the nose
- Nasal tip projection (For the tip to appear more pointed)
- To make the nose appear slimmer
- To decrease the flare of the nostrils
- To achieve symmetry of the nostrils
- To centralise the columella of the nose
The Nose Reshaping Process
Your expectations and ideals will be discussed during the initial consultation at our London clinic, at which time a nasal profile will be taken and examined to assess the nose in relation to overall facial structure. Your nose should be in proportion to the width and height of your face, and chin and lip projection are also considered.
Before the procedure, topical anesthesia is applied to the surface of the nose, which delivers a good numbing effect. The filler itself also contains local anaesthetic and is injected into the required areas. The procedure is quick, lasting only ten minutes and you will experience no pain. *
After the procedure, you may experience minimal redness or swelling which will subside in a matter of days. Most patients are able to continue their day-to-day activities and return to work immediately. The clinic provides all patients with post-procedure instructions and a follow-up consultation is scheduled for two weeks after, if necessary.
Complications are very uncommon, but possible risks may include minor bruising, swelling or infection. Patients will be fully supported throughout the entire process, including after the procedure.
*Treatments are bespoke for every individual and results may vary.
