Nonsurgical Nose Job
Many patients who have expressed dissatisfaction with the shape of their nose can now achieve a more desirable appearance without surgery! The 10-Minute Non-Surgical Nose Job allows patients to reshape their nose quickly and easily, with little to no downtime. Due to the convenience of this treatment, it can often be a suitable alternative to rhinoplasty. To find out if the Non-Surgical Nose Job is right for you, schedule a consultation with our doctors, please contact us today.
How Does it Work?
Using a combination of strategically placed cosmetic injectables, our doctors are able to reshape the areas of concern, leading to a more balanced appearance. Treatment is customized for each patient’s unique concerns. Many of the dermal fillers typically used – such as Restylane® and Juvéderm® – contain hyaluronic acid (HA). This naturally-occurring substance bonds to moisture in the skin and expands, allowing our doctors to carefully “re-sculpt” the area. The procedure usually takes only about ten minutes to complete.
How Long Does it Last?
Results are typically seen immediately after treatment, and often last up to 12 months, due to the slow absorption rate of the tissue in the nasal bridge.
What Issues Can Be Addressed?
Unlike rhinoplasty, the 10-Minute Non-Surgical Nose Job cannot reduce the size of a nose or address breathing problems. However, it can be a temporary solution for several other common concerns. This non-surgical alternative is most frequently recommended for:
- Smoothing humps or bumps
- Creating a more balanced appearance for crooked noses
- Giving the tip of the nose a “lift”
- Providing a rounder appearance to flat nasal bridges
Does it Hurt?
We want your experience to be as comfortable as possible, so we utilize topical numbing creams and other forms of anesthesia as needed to minimize any discomfort during treatment.
What is Recovery Like?
After the Non-Surgical Nose Job, some individuals may experience some modest swelling or bruising, but these side effects should fade one to two days after the procedure. Little to no downtime is usually required after treatment – most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately.
