While many of us harbor the desire to have a well defined and sharply contoured nose, we prefer not to go under the knife for a surgical nose job. However, thanks to several cutting edge advancements in the medical industry, it is now possible to achieve a beautifully sculpted nose without undergoing any surgery!

What is the Secret of a Non-surgical Nose Job?

If you are constantly bothered by an irregularity on your nose, you might want to consider a nose enhancement or correction using dermal fillers. A non-surgical nose job, as it is commonly referred to as, is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure that is not only minimally-invasive, but also highly effective in achieving a straighter, narrower, and more symmetrical nose.

The procedure is a safer and more convenient alternative to the traditional Rhinoplasty surgery. It is known as the 15 minute nose job since it makes use of dermal filler injections for reshaping the nose without the complications and downtime associated with the invasive surgical procedure.

Since most injectable dermal fillers are infused with a numbing agent called lidocaine, the procedure involves negligible discomfort or pain.

What are the Various Dermal Fillers Used for the Non-surgical Nose Job?

Some of the dermal fillers that are typically employed in the procedure are:

Juvederm– A collection of injectable dermal fillers that are made from hyaluronic acid, a compound that is naturally present in our bodies and is associated with providing volume and hydration to the skin tissues.
Restylane– A dermal-filler that is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid or NASHA. Restylane is FDA approved and one of the most popular fillers used for skin rejuvenation and nose enhancements.
Radiesse– An injectable dermal-filler that is made from calcium based microspheres that are suspended in a water based gel solution and is naturally compatible with our body tissues.
Bellafill – A dermal-filler that is produced by purification of bovine collagen and polymethylmethacrylate beads for providing additional structural support to the skin tissues.

What you Can Expect from your Non-surgical Nose Job?

While it cannot produce the dramatic results of the traditional surgical Rhinoplasty, the nonsurgical nose job yields fairly impressive results in correcting mild to moderate imperfections and obtaining a more streamlined and sculpted nose.

Prior to the treatment, the target site is administered with a topical anesthetic to easy any discomfort that may arise during the procedure. The chosen dermal filler is then injected into the target locations with great precision using a fine syringe.

Since there is no scarring or bruising, you can resume your regular activities soon after the session.  You might be required to schedule a follow up session to maintain the results for a longer period of time.
