With the advancement in technology Non-surgical nose jobs have increasingly become a popular option for those who don’t want to go under the knife to reshape or augment their noses. Though surgery is the best way to go, however, these non-surgical options which are less invasive give you immediate result with almost no downtime. This procedure is referred to as injection rhinoplasty procedures, which are executed using hyaluronic acid-based fillers. If you have been considering a non-surgical nose job, then we have answered some of the frequently asked questions for you which will help you to make a more informed decision.

Who is a perfect candidate for the procedure?

Though it is a non-surgical procedure, but not everyone is an ideal candidate for it. If you wish to significantly reduce the aspect of your nose or need an internal structural correction, then the traditional rhinoplasty procedure is the best choice.

How long does the procedure last?

The length of the non-surgical nose job varies from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. These dermal fillers which are used in the procedure can be injected quite easily and quickly without any pain at all. The best part is that the results are visible almost immediately, which means that you will walk out of the procedure while enjoying the appearance of an improved nose.

How long is the recovery time?

The recovery period of the non-surgical procedure is easier and simpler than the surgical procedure. In most cases, patients are able to return to their daily routines almost immediately. There is a chance that you may experience a bit of swelling for about a day to two, which may linger on for the next ten days. But the swelling which is experienced is usually minimal.

How long do the results last?

The results of the non-surgical rhinoplasty can last from 9 months to a year, depending upon the treatment that you have opted for. Once the life of the filler begins to end, your body will start to break it down in a gradual and symmetrical manner. After that your nose will return to its regular shape in a uniform manner.

Will the filler make my nose look wide or bulbous?

During the procedure very fine needles are used with great precision in order to ensure that the shape, slop and the contour of your nose reflects your expectations. The careful and delicate approach will make your nose look smaller and not bigger.

What are the various problems that can be dealt with?

Fat grafting can increase the height of the dorsum on the bridge of the nose, add shape and definition to the tip of the nose, straighten the bridge and correct a dorsal hump, fix the appearance of a crooked nose by adding balance and improving symmetry, improves the irregularities or deformities from a previous rhinoplasty, smoothens sharp angles and restores symmetry and balance.
