Surgical rhinoplasty, aka nose job, is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure. The nose occupies a prominent location on the face, and the size and shape of the nose can significantly affect the attractiveness of a person. Individuals with noses that are out of proportion to their face, with a crooked bridge, or other minor imperfections often choose a surgical rhinoplasty. However, surgical rhinoplasty is a major procedure, with a lengthy recovery time. The 5-minute nose job was developed as an alternative to surgical rhinoplasty for selected individuals.
What is a 5-minute nose job?
During a 5-minute nose job, soft-tissue fillers are injected into the nose during a simple, minimally invasive procedure. The fillers are the same ones used to restore volume to the cheeks and face. When used on the nose, they are used to create a more attractive, symmetrical, and proportional shape.
What types of noses can it be used on?
Many types of noses can be made more attractive with a 5-minute nose job. Minor bumps, indents, and crookedness of the bridge can be covered up and smoothed out. Noses that are wide can be made to appear thinner by careful application. A 5-minute nose job is non-invasive and is used for making cosmetic corrections.
What to expect
After an examination and a discussion with the doctor about desired cosmetic results and realistic results, the provider will plan the procedure. On the day of the procedure, the provider will inject the filler at the necessary locations. There may be some minor discomfort. As the name suggests, the actual procedure only takes a few minutes. There may be visible bruising and swelling for a couple of days after the procedure. The nose will look better after the procedure, and may achieve its final form within two to three days, after the bruising and swelling go away.
