Although no one has a perfectly symmetrical or smooth nose, some people struggle with more pronounced cosmetic problems than others when it comes to the size, shape or symmetry of their nose. If this sounds like you but the thought of extensive surgery has you feeling a little queasy, a nose job without surgery could be right for you.
How Does a Nose Job without Surgery Work?
An experienced plastic surgeon with an artistic eye can use injectable fillers to temporarily smooth minor lumps and bumps in your nose, or to slightly alter the shape for a more balanced, symmetrical look.
Fillers such as JUVÉDERM contain hyaluronic acid to help plump and smooth your skin by drawing in and holding onto large amounts of water molecules. This is the same way that injectables can help to temporarily erase lines and wrinkles and restore lost facial volume.
How Long Does a Non-Surgical Nose Job Take?
Discuss your injectable filler options with your plastic surgeon to help you pick the best one for your needs and goals.
One of the biggest benefits of a non-surgical nose job is that the process usually only takes minutes… and you don’t have to worry about taking time off work. Although you might notice some swelling or bruising for a few days, these side effects are typically mild and should go away on their own shortly after your procedure.
How Long Do Fillers Last?
Fillers do offer temporary results, but sometimes these can last over 6 months. This, however, will depend on the type of filler that you choose, so you’ll want to ask your plastic surgeon about the details of your particular treatment.
