Many of us do get insecure about our nose shape sometimes. But what if you could get rhinoplasty that only lasts as long as your lunchtime and is almost painless? Well, there is such a thing as a painless non-surgical nose job in case you haven’t heard.
What is a non-surgical nose job/rhinoplasty?
A surgical nose job is an in-demand cosmetic procedure that involves many risks and side effects. On the other hand, non-surgical nose job offers a good alternative to the surgical one. What it does is make use of dermal fillers to correct the shape and size of the nose. It can correct the minor imperfections in the nose to improve the client’s facial profile.
How is the non-surgical nose job done?
It involves injecting dermal fillers, most commonly hyaluronic acid ones like Restylane and Juvederm or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse), that are injected into the nose area to correct the imperfections. Hyaluronic acid consists of proteoglycan similar to what is naturally occurring in our bodies. It is reversible, and can be naturally breakdown by the body over months or by dissolution. This makes it quite safe for facial contouring.
Varying amounts of filler are injected by the doctor into the nasal bridge or tip depending on the client’s nose profile. Afterward, the doctor will carefully mold the filler into the client’s desired shape.
Time required for non-surgical nose job procedure
The complete non-surgical nose procedure usually takes about 15-30 minutes. You can call it a ‘lunchtime procedure’ and the client can resume routine activities immediately after treatment. Normal after-effects may include redness or slight bruising that lasts at most a week.
This non-surgical nose job is more suitable for people with:
- Humps on the bridge/hooked nose
- Flat nasal bridge
- Drooping nasal tips
- Crooked or asymmetrical noses
However, do note that this nose procedure does not involve any nasal reduction. In fact, it fills areas to minimize the jarring contour of the nose shape e.g. the hump.
A non-surgical nose job procedure should be performed by an experienced and professional cosmetic doctor, and after proper consultation. If you are looking for instant improvements in your nose shape with minor corrections without the invasive surgery, then this procedure is recommended for you. No doubt, every procedure will still come with certain risks. In any case, even if this non-surgical nose job sounds too good to be true, we still celebrate the idea of natural beauty and avoid getting the procedure if unnecessary.
