Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your nose, but don’t want the risks and recovery time of surgery? The non-surgical rhinoplasty is among the most popular trends in cosmetic surgery today.

A rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job” is the surgical correction of the nasal shape by modifying the bones and cartilages of the nose. It’s understandable that many patients want a gentler alternative, and look for non-surgical rhinoplasty in Las Vegas.

What Can a Non-Surgical Nose Job Fix?

A non-surgical rhinoplasty is most effective for camouflaging a hump on the bridge of the nose, building up the nasal bridge, improving mild asymmetry and for “lifting” the nose by altering the shape of the nasal tip.

Patients well-suited to non-surgical rhinoplasty include:

  • Those who want only a subtle change to their appearance
  • Patients advised to have cartilage grafts, but do not want surgery or general anesthesia
  • People with no structural problems affecting breathing
  • Patients seeking a “tester” nose job with reversible effects

How Does It Work?

The non-surgical or “liquid” rhinoplasty involves injecting fillers, typically either hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite, into the nose. Only a fraction of a millilitre is used in each injection. Your doctor uses highly specific injection sites and techniques, carefully controlling the angle of the needle and ensuring that no fillers enter the bloodstream. For example, disguising a hump requires fillers along the midline of the bridge, while a crooked nose is hidden through injections along the sidewall, and tip projection is changed by adding filler.

What To Expect After Nose Fillers

Notable advantages of a non-surgical rhinoplasty are that there is little to no downtime, very minimal discomfort during the procedure and immediate results. You only need local anesthetic, so your nose may feel a little numb for a few hours.

You can expect hyaluronic acid fillers to last 6-12 months, while calcium hydroxyapatite may last up to 18 months. Permanent fillers are made from synthetic material and are far less safe, as they can cause tissue damage and be attacked by the immune system.

Can Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Make Your Nose Smaller?

No; as it only adds filler to your nose, a non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot make your nose smaller. It does, however, make certain features such as a hump less noticeable.

Cost of Non-Surgical Nose Jobs

The cost of a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure varies depending on a number of factors. Your doctor’s level of skill and expertise and regional economic factors will often affect the total price.
