Non-surgical nose job uses a dermal filler, like Juvederm®, to correct a variety of problems patients have with their nose. Injections can disguise a slight hump on the bridge of the nose, change the bridge, or reshape the tip. Being that rhinoplasty surgery is both a popular and expensive treatment—frequently costing thousands of dollars—this noninvasive procedure offers a quick and relatively painless solution. Results are immediate and there is zero downtime needed for recovery.
What Are The Benefits?
The typical rhinoplasty surgery leaves patients bruised and disabled for a few days. Liquid rhinoplasty offers similar results without the need to recover, all for a fraction of the cost. Additionally, using dermal fillers to treat problem areas on the nose is completely reversible! If the desired effect ultimately is what the patient wants, the treatment was successful! Over time, the body will absorb the filler. This treatment, however, cannot reduce the size or appearance of the nose, but only help reshape it.
A Nose Lift or A Nose Job?
A nose lift is an excellent addition to a non-surgical nose job. Nose lifts involve using dermal fillers to lift the tip of the nose, so it’s not quite as down-turned. Depending on each individual case, your doctor may inject Botox several days prior to the nose lift to reduce the muscle function under the tip. Then, dermal fillers are placed between the medial crura. This technique is similar to that used in a traditional rhinoplasty, where grafts are used to support the tip of the nose. In this case, fillers act as the support. The result is pleasant, especially when you smile.
Are There Side Effects?
Side effects are minimal and may include swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are rare and typically mild in severity, lasting a few days at most.
