A non-surgical nose job offers a lot of benefits when compared to a surgical nose job.  The results are practically the same but there is a lot less pain involved, no recovery time needed and it is a mere fraction of the cost of surgery.  Reshaping and contouring the nose does not have to be done by surgery, excellent results can be achieved with this non-surgical approach.

How is the Non Surgical Rhinoplasty Done

The non-surgical nose job is performed with injection fillers such as Silicone or Radisee when are injected into the problematic area of the nose.  These fillers help make the area smoother and more even which will hide any bumps or humps that may have been the problem.  The procedure doesn’t take a lot of time - about 15 minutes and the results are immediate.  This is one of the biggest advantages over the surgical rhinoplasty where you have to go under the knife for a couple of hours and spend days or weeks recovering before you see the final result.  The risks associated with surgery such as scarring and excessive bleeding are minimised as is the risk associated with going under anaesthesia.  With passing time, more and more fillers are being approved by the FDA and this is improving the results of non-surgical nose jobs.  Radisee along with Juvedrem and Restylane last for about 10 months and give a great, smooth, natural look. Another option is the HIKO Nose ThreadLift from Cambridge Medical. It's not very invasive, performed under local anaesthesia and is perfect for straightening the nose with basically no downtime. 

Non Surgical Nose Job – Who can it Help?

However, this non-surgical procedure is not an option for people with nasal deformities or those looking to reduce the size of their nose.  These people will need to have surgical rhinoplasty as the non-surgical version is simply for cosmetic purposes when small details need to be fixed.  Non-surgical nose jobs besides offering speed, comfort and ease, also offers a much reduced cost when compared to surgical rhinoplasty.  At a tenth of the cost, it is definitely worth looking into.

If you are one of the people that have had to have surgical rhinoplasty, injectables may be used following the surgery to correct the shape of the nose until the end results of the rhinoplasty come into effect which may take up to a year.  The type of injectable used will determine how long the results last as there are permanent injectables and temporary injectables. Using a temporary injectable while the nose heals after surgical rhinoplasty allows you to enjoy the new shape of your nose while waiting for the nose to heal.

Rhinoplasty Alternatives

The non-surgical nose job is a great alternative to rhinoplasy and it has proved to be a safe and effective procedure that minimizes the risks and pain normally associated with rhinoplasty.  A topical anaesthesia is all that is needed for the procedure to be carried out, along with icing of the nose prior to the injection to lessen the swelling and bruising.  Over-the-counter pain medication can be taken after the procedure to deal with any pain if necessary.

As you would do for any medical procedure, you need to do your research and find the best doctor to carry out the non-surgical nose job.  Finding a doctor with experience is paramount with this procedure as the filling has to be done with the utmost care.  The doctor also has to have a very good understanding of nasal anatomy along with very detailed knowledge about the filler that he is using.  The doctor needs to be fully-versed on where to inject the filler, how deep into the skin to inject as well as how much filler to use.  This is crucial information as it will affect the end result of the non-surgical nose job.  A good doctor will inject small amounts of the filler into the nose gradually, as using too much filler will cause the nose to look even worse than before.  Most well trained doctors prefer to bring the patients back to have more filler than to over-fill on the first attempt.
