Non-Surgical Nose Job San Jose
The importance of a well-balanced nose cannot be overemphasized. As one of the most prominent features of the face, the nose is essential for facial harmony and, for many people, a positive self-image. For men and women frustrated by the appearance of their nose, dramatic improvement can often be accomplished with nonsurgical nose job with various dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, or Bellafill®.
Dr. Jane’s Nonsurgical Nose Job (Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty) takes about fifteen to thirty minutes to perform. A topical numbing cream is applied to the top of the nose.Juvederm (Dr. Jane’s usual filler of choice for the nose) is injected to fill depressions, smooth out sharp angles, or change the angle of the tip of the nose, restoring symmetry and making your nose appear smaller and more attractive. During the procedure you will have the opportunity to look at yourself in a mirror and have control over the results.
In 2007, Bellafil was approved by the FDA. Bellafill is the first permanent injectable filler approved for the US market. Some doctors have been using injectable Silicone in the lips and other areas as a permanent filler, but safety concerns have made the use of Silicone less common. Bellafill provides a safe alternative if used correctly by an experienced injector. Composed of methyl methacrylate (a safe, non-reactive plastic that has been in use for many years as a surgical implant) in a bovine collagen carrier, Bellafilldoes require a collagen skin test prior to use.
Dr.Jane currently offers Bellafillas a permanent version of her nonsurgical treatments. Bellafill is injected gradually, over five sessions spaced one month apart. Over time, the collagen component is replaced by the body’s own cells. Careful use of Bellafillfor the Nonsurgical Nose Job has resulted in many people having the long-lasting effect of surgical rhinoplasty with a simple series of 15 minute injections!*

A. Non-surgical nose job is currently an off-label use for fillers. All of the fillers used by Dr. Jane are FDA-approved for safety in the face, but some unwanted side effects may occur, such as:
There is a risk for bruising; however bruising with non-surgical nose job is usually minimal.
Compared to surgical rhinoplasty, non-surgical nose job is a substantially less painful procedure. Because the dermal fillers contain an anesthetic, the area is numb for 1 to 2 hours, but there may be an initial “pinch” felt at the point of injection. Any remaining discomfort is generally mild and should subside within a few hours.
Swelling around the injection site is normal and usually resolves after 2 weeks. As the swelling decreases, some irregularities in shape may appear as the filler settles. This can often be corrected by gently massaging the area to ensure even distribution. Dr. Jane will examine your results for balance and symmetry during your 2-week follow up appointment and make adjustments as necessary.
- Adverse Reactions
Although uncommon, as with any medical procedure there is a chance for developing adverse reactions such infection, skin injury, or skin irregularities. These side effects are typically rare and most of our patients do not experience serious consequences after treatment. More common reactions include slight redness or irritation at the injection site.
