If you’ve wanted to tweak a few things about your nose but you just can’t commit to the recovery of a nose job, there’s good news for you! Dermal fillers, which are typically used to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, are now being used for breakthrough non-surgical nose jobs.
What Does a Non-Surgical Nose Job Entail?
Using a filler instead of going through a complete rhinoplasty is best if you have a small cosmetic flaw in your nose. The “ideal” problems a non-surgical nose job corrects are lifting the tip of the nose, flat bridges, a crooked nose, or smoothing small bumps.
When your doctor has established a plan, they will numb your nose with a topical anesthetic cream. Then they will inject small amounts of dermal filler under the skin of the nose to create small but dramatic changes. The fillers soften sharp angles, fill depressions and add to a very flat bridge. The fillers create symmetry and make your nose look smaller because it now has better definition. The difference will be noticeable but subtle enough that no one will ask if you went and had a nose job. You’ll notice a difference in your nose immediately.
How Long Do Results Last?
Your results should last anywhere from six to 12 months. It will depend on how much was injected, the type of filler used, and how your body absorbs it. When you start noticing your old nose is reappearing, you’ll just need to go into your doctor for touch-up injections.
Possible Side Effects
The most common side effect is redness and soreness at the injection sites. This is expected and not abnormal. The redness should resolve within 24 hours.
Who isn’t a Good Candidate for a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
Since the fillers only correct minor cosmetic problems, this procedure isn’t meant for patients who need an actual rhinoplasty for significant changes in the structure of their nose. It also isn’t for people who want to reduce their nose size or if they need to improve their nasal breathing.
Non-surgical nose jobs are an excellent alternative to a surgical nose job. If you only need to improve something small on your nose, you don’t need to go through the pain and trauma of a nose job surgery. All you need is a few well-placed dermal filler injections, and you’ll have a brand new nose. Contact Las Vegas Laser and Lipo today to schedule your appointment.
