For many people, the size or shape of their nose is something they are constantly aware of, something that causes them a lot of stress. Traditionally, rhinoplasty has the been the only method of augmenting the shape or size of the nose. But rhinoplasty can feel like a big step, as it is permanent, expensive, and requires some major downtime. Luckily, there’s a new way to get a nose job that’s simple and effective: the non-surgical nose job.
What is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
What exactly is a non-surgical nose job? A non-surgical nose job is a way of altering the appearance of the nose through strategically placed fillers. Fillers like Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, which is what Dr. Zadeh uses for non-surgical nose jobs, are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. When injected into the skin, this hyaluronic acid adds volume to the skin.
Adding volume to the nose can straighten its profile, masking bumps. It can also raise the tip of one’s nose and fix certain deformities, such as a hooked or crooked nose. Using fillers to strategically change the shape of the nose can allow it have a much more harmonious look with the rest of the face.
What is Getting a Non-Surgical Nose Job Like?
Getting a non-surgical nose job is simple and fast. During the procedure, a series of strategically placed injections are carefully applied to the nose. The treatment takes less than 20 minutes and the results of the treatment are instantly seen. Unlike with a traditional rhinoplasty, there is little to no pain, bruising, or swelling and patients can immediately resume their normal activities after treatment.
Generally, only one treatment is needed, though some touch up injections may be made at your follow up appointment three weeks after the first session. After your desired look is achieved, the effects of a non-surgical nose job will last for about a year.
Non-Surgical Nose Job Vs Rhinoplasty
A non-surgical nose job is a great option for many patients. It’s an excellent choice for those who want to fix smaller imperfections, such as bumps or asymmetry. It’s also a great way for many people who have been considering getting a traditional nose job to try out nose augmentation. It’s fast, simple, and temporary, so it comes with less pain and risk. Plus, a non-surgical nose job is far more affordable than traditional rhinoplasty, as it usually costs about 90% less. On top of that, a non-surgical nose job is instantly reversible for those who decide that they dislike their results, as Juvederm can easily be dissolved by your doctor.
For some people, like those who want to shrink the overall size of their nose or those who want to minimize wide nostrils, this treatment may not be the right choice. For those who want to significantly reduce the size of their nose, rhinoplasty would be the better option. However, for many people, filler injections are a great way to get their desired aesthetic look, without the risks and downtime that come with surgery.
