Sitting smack dab in the center of the face, the nose is a defining feature of our appearance. Men and women with bumps, asymmetry or other cosmetic concerns involving the nose may be self-conscious as a result of these appearance issues.
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can improve the look and shape of the nose, and has been the go-to procedure for countless men and women through the years. But is it possible that a non-surgical nose job can offer the same results?
What Is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
A non-surgical nose job can shape the nose without surgery.
Dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE® or Sculptra® may be used to correct the appearance of bumps or other asymmetrical features on the nose. Because there’s no surgery involved, this type of nose job involves minimal swelling and bruising.
Injectable fillers are temporary and will dissolve over time, so you’ll need to have treatments every 8 to 12 months to maintain your results. Some people start with a non-surgical nose job to “try out” their new look before committing to the permanent results of a traditional, surgical nose job.
When It’s Time for Traditional Rhinoplasty
A non-surgical nose job has its merits as well as its limitations. Not everyone wants to be bothered with repeat visits to the cosmetic surgeon to maintain their preferred nose appearance. With just one surgery, a traditional nose job can address both functional and cosmetic concerns for an enhanced and even younger-looking appearance. For the best results, men and women who are considering rhinoplasty should consult with an accomplished cosmetic surgeon who specializes in nose job surgery.
