Everything you need to know about non surgical rhinoplasty

Aesthetic treatments can do wonders for your self confidence if there are aspects of your appearance that you want to alter. Many individuals choose to make alterations to their nose, which can be achieved using a non surgical nose job. In this blog we’re telling you everything you need to know about non surgical rhinoplasty.

What is non surgical rhinoplasty?

Non surgical rhinoplasty involves a trained professional using an injection to reshape your nose. A non surgical nose job can be used to alter the nose in small ways. Some reasons why people choose to have nose fillers is due to small bumps under the skin, to fix a slightly crooked nose, or to make changes to a drooping nasal tip.

Non surgical nose jobs are not advised when trying to drastically alter the appearance of the nasal area, as it is not a permanent method. Upon a consultation, a professional will be able to advise you on the best course of action based on your personal circumstances and the desired appearance. If you have a moderate bump or moderate drooping, your trained practitioner can offer you advice.

One of the main reasons why people choose to alter the appearance of their nose is due to its size. It is worth noting that non surgical liquid rhinoplasty is not the most appropriate option if you are wanting to achieve a small nose. Despite a non surgical nose reshaping not being a permanent solution, it is a great non invasive alternative to a surgical procedure and does not require general anaesthetic.

What does non surgical rhinoplasty involve?

A non surgical nose job is completed using injections, usually containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found throughout the body naturally. Sometimes non surgical rhinoplasty is referred to as a liquid nose job.

Before you are invited for the non surgical nose job, you will need to attend an initial, thorough consultation whereby we will discuss the procedure and what you wish to achieve from it. While considering your facial anatomy, we will provide our opinion and answer any questions you may have.

You will be asked to attend your rhinoplasty appointment 30 minutes earlier than the specified time so that the practitioner can apply numbing cream to the area. This means that you should not feel most of the procedure. After the topical anaesthetic cream has taken effect, they will begin the non surgical nose job. You may be wondering ‘does a non surgical rhinoplasty hurt’ the answer is no. As the filler is injected, you may feel some pinching and feelings of pressure around the nasal area.

The nose filler treatment may be injected into multiple areas of the nose to give you the desired outcome. These areas can include the nasal bridge, the sides of the nose and the nose tip. These are typical areas that can be altered easily using non surgical rhinoplasty. Generally, the process of non surgical rhinoplasty is easy and doesn’t take too much time. Usually the procedure takes between 30 and 45 minutes.

Is non surgical rhinoplasty safe?

The procedure of a non surgical nose job is safe for anyone over the age of 18. The treatment uses dermal fillers which are highly safe and are handled well by most individuals. Dermal fillers are also FDA approved. When choosing a salon and beauty therapist to conduct the procedure, you should check that they are qualified. If you choose to use someone who is not qualified, you may end up with results you are not happy with and even further complications.

Who can complete a non surgical rhinoplasty treatment?

A non surgical nose job treatment should be completed by a qualified practitioner with experience. This will help you to have a safer experience and also means you will have more access to support following the procedure. You should always ensure that the treatment is provided in a medically led clinic. Be sure to check out the cleanliness of the beauty salon.

Non surgical rhinoplasty results

The results of a non surgical rhinoplasty procedure are usually positive, with individuals being happy with the small changes achieved.

Due to this aesthetic treatment using dermal fillers, the results are visible immediately after the treatment, however you may experience minor swelling so more accurate results are visible after the swelling has gone down.

How long do the results last?

Non surgical nose filler is only a temporary answer, if you are looking for a permanent solution, a traditional rhinoplasty may be better for you.

What are the side effects of a non surgical rhinoplasty?

As with all facial aesthetics, you may experience some mild side effects. A non surgical nose job can lead to slight swelling, temporary redness, bruising and tenderness. You may also experience some bleeding at the injection site. Although these side effects are common, not everyone will experience them and you may only have one. They also do not usually last very long, after a few hours, they may disappear, but it can also take up to 48 hours.

Occasionally, some people can be allergic to hyaluronic based dermal filler, if you are concerned about this, you should speak to your practitioner before you have the treatment.

One of the main reasons individuals choose this filler treatment is due to its minimal recovery time and the minimal discomfort involved. Your side effects should not stop you from continuing to complete normal tasks, for example, some individuals feel comfortable going straight back to work after having the procedure, others prefer to rest due to experiencing side effects. If you plan on having the procedure more frequently, due to it being a temporary fix, you may gain a better understanding of how your body reacts to the treatment and can therefore make the necessary plans for future appointments.

Non surgical rhinoplasty aftercare

Upon completion of the non surgical nose job procedure, you will receive all of the information you need to ensure quality aftercare. We would recommend that you avoid exercise and drinking alcohol, apply ice or a cold compress to the area, apply an arnica cream to bruises, apply mineral makeup after the treatment and avoid sunbeds and saunas for a few days.

If you wear glasses, you should speak to the practitioner about this, as they may not be suitable due to weight. Your practitioner will provide you with the best way of dealing with this.
