The Non-Surgical Nose Job

Many people may be born with noses that can attract attention away from the natural harmony of the face. Nose bumps and crooked noses can be a reason for people to feel self-conscious about their appearance, or feel as though their nose does not fit in with the rest of their surrounding features. They may have also considered having a rhinoplasty or nose job to address this, but do not want to undergo a surgical procedure and a long recovery period.

The Non-Surgical Nose Job

Surprisingly, there is a way to improve various nose irregularities without surgery with a non-surgical nose reshaping procedure. This is a non-invasive, revolutionary procedure that can reshape the nose with injections of soft dermal filler to create shapes, angles, and contours that can help a nose appear straighter, narrower, and smoother. With almost zero downtime and no incisions, the non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to surgery. It has the ability to correct minor imperfections to restore harmony and symmetry with the rest of your features, resulting in a very natural enhancement.

During your initial consultation, the McLean Clinic team will determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this procedure. Patients will be able to browse through before and after photos of patients who have received a non-surgical nose job in the past before making their decision.

How It Works

Once you have decided on your course of action, the non-surgical nose job can be completed on the same day as your initial consultation. The procedure will take only 15 minutes and many patients find it extremely bearable and virtually painless. Soft tissue filler, such as Juvederm, will be injected into areas of the nose to enhance and create desirable contours and shapes.

Results

Your results will be noticeable immediately and you will be able to return to work and resume normal activities right away. You may experience mild swelling and bruising at the injection site, but this should resolve on its own within 24 hours. Patients are usually extremely satisfied with their results from the non-surgical nose job due to how easy, quick, and instant their results are.

How Long Do My Results Last?

Due to the temporary nature of hyaluronic acid based fillers, your results will usually last approximately 1 year. Optimal results can be maintained with follow-up treatments every 9 months to 1 year, depending on how quickly the substance is metabolized by your body.

Sometimes, a non-surgical nose job can be used after a formal rhinoplasty procedure when the final results are not the most ideal. In these cases, the nose cannot be coaxed back into a better configuration through surgery and the non-surgical nose job is a great way to address any concerns. This procedure can also be used if patients are considering or want to try out a new nose before committing to a permanent procedure.

If you have a nose that is not working for you and you would like to see if you are a candidate for the non-surgical nose job, book your appointment to see the McLean Clinic team in the privacy and comfort of our Mississauga office.
