Rhinoplasty has been one of the top requested cosmetic surgeries for decades. The nose plays such a significant role in the symmetry and balance of the face – if it is oddly shaped, it can distract the eye from other features. While reshaping the nose can make the face more attractive, not everyone is ready to pursue a surgical nose job. Another option for many people with cosmetic nose flaws is non-surgical rhinoplasty.
What Is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
Rhinoplasty surgery requires incisions, anesthesia and up to two weeks of recovery time. What if you could avoid that process and achieve almost instant nose reshaping with no downtime? Non-surgical nose reshaping can provide just that. The nose is reshaped using injectables such as Botox® and dermal fillers. By relaxing certain muscles, you can erase lines on the sidewalls or raise a drooping nasal tip. Filler injections are used to smooth bumps or reshape the nasal tip, creating a more balanced nose appearance.
Pros and Cons of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be a wonderful option for some patients with an oddly shaped nose. The treatment can be performed in a quick office visit with no anesthesia or downtime needed. Filler injections are usually noticeable immediately, while Botox treatment takes a few days to work. A non-surgical nose job is less invasive and less expensive, but it does have some drawbacks.
Not all aesthetic concerns with the nose can be resolved with non-surgical methods. If you have a large hump on your bridge or you want to reduce the width of your nose, facial fillers and neuromodulators will not be helpful. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be beneficial for some minor nose flaws, but it is only temporary and needs to be repeated to maintain results.
If you want to hide a crooked spot on your nose or slightly reshape a narrow nasal tip, non-surgical rhinoplasty may be right for you.
