A non-surgical nose job is where the nose is reshaped using dermal fillers as an alternative to a surgical rhinoplasty procedure. The procedure is used to resize or reshape the nose non-invasively.
Anybody who would like to change the appearance of their nose but does not want to have surgery. The technique can be used on any of the following:
If you have had previous nasal surgery, it is unlikely that you are suitable for this procedure.
Our surgeon Dr Mainiwill apply a local anaesthetic if necessary to make you comfortable, and then the filler will be inserted into your nose. There are two methods for this – either a very fine needle is used, or a blunt tube (cannula) is inserted through a pinprick. The latter is our preferred method with the cannula because it is much safer.
It is our normal practice to do the treatment over 2-3 sessions, to gradually add the filler, so as not to cause build up of excessive pressure.
Doing this treatment in one go has risks in some people, as the blood supply in the nose is precarious and can be compromised.
The procedure is very safe but you may experience:
You will see the initial results immediately and this will improve further after your follow-up sessions.
Depending on the type of filler used, your result should last at six to 18 months. Most people don’t need any top up for 12 months, but this depends on your skin quality and whether or not you smoke.
