What is a nonsurgical nose job?
Your nose is the center of your face, so what if you feel like it’s just not you? A nonsurgical nose job can change the shape of your nose by adding volume with injectable fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane, or Voluma. There’s no downtime with a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, and it’s very quick, about 5–10 minutes. It’s also relatively comfortable.
Is a nonsurgical nose job right for me?
A nonsurgical rhinoplasty can be a good choice if you’d like to:
- camouflage small humps
- raise a flat bridge, fill indents
- make your nose more symmetrical
- try a temporary change without the cost and downtime of surgery
How much does a nonsurgical nose job cost?
“The cost of this procedure, like any other procedure, depends on the case, complexity, location, surgeon, and filler,” says Dr. Jeffrey Jumaily, a Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon, in a nonsurgical nose job Q&A. “Nonsurgical nose job does not use a lot of filler, but it does take a lot of time, work, and skill by the surgeon to get an optimal result.”
What should I expect during a nonsurgical nose job?
A nonsurgical nose job is typically done with topical anesthesia. Your doctor will select the right filler for your goals and inject it into the bridge, tip, or other areas of your nose to add volume.
Your results should be visible immediately after your treatment, and you may have a small bruise that you can cover with makeup. It’s quick enough to be done over your lunch break, and you can typically return to work without any evidence of the procedure.
Several weeks after your treatment, you may have a follow-up visit with your doctor to review your before-and-after photos and see if your goals were reached.
What is nonsurgical nose job recovery like?
A nonsurgical nose job is relatively simple and requires little to no downtime. Slight swelling or bruising may appear around injection sites, but it’s typically mild. Most people are able to return to work immediately after their injections.
How long will my nonsurgical nose job results last?
The longevity of your results depends on the type of filler used. “Hyaluronic acids such as Restylane and Juvéderm can last six months to two years,” says Dr. Jaime Perez, a Tampa, Florida plastic surgeon, in a RealSelf Q&A. “Other products such as ArteFill, Sculptra, and Radiesse will be more permanent. However, I do not recommend them because of the high rate of complications associated with the use of these products as fillers in the nose.”
According to Dr. Devgan, everyone metabolizes fillers differently, so the longevity will vary. “Most of the fillers doctors use for this, like Voluma or Restylane Lyft, can last 1 to 2 years, in an ideal situation. But there are patients where those fillers don’t last that long. I try not to disappoint people by giving a long range, so I’d say the average is 8 to 16 months. I’ve seen patients after 3 years who still have good results, and I’ve also seen patients after 3 months who need to do it again.”
“Nonsurgical nose job using microdroplet Silikon-1000 may lead to safe, permanent, and natural looking results,” says Dr. Eric Joseph, a facial plastic surgeon in West Orange, New Jersey, in a RealSelf Q&A. “Microdroplet Silikon-1000 works particularly well for permanent nonsurgical nose job treatments. Several treatments are typically necessary for achieving a permanent desired result.”
