    What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

    Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a medical cosmetic procedure where injectable dermal fillers adjust the size and shape of a person's nose without surgery. The method is a solution for patients interested in eliminating imperfections on their noses without committing to a traditional surgical nose job. It is also the answer for those not ready to change their noses permanently.

    Hyaluronic acid filler is injected under the skin in areas of the nose that require smoothing. The filler integrates into the skin's deeper layers, supporting and smoothing imperfections by maintaining its shape. The results can persist for six months or longer. While the procedure is generally not painful, there might be some discomfort when the injection needle penetrates the skin. Some individuals may experience redness and swelling, which typically subside within a few hours.

    A non-surgical rhinoplasty is convenient as it takes a short time to perform and has minimal downtime. In some cases, the patient can get back to their normal activities on the same day.

    What Are Its Benefits?

    Promising a minimally invasive, convenient procedure with a short downtime, non-surgical rhinoplasty delivers a cosmetically pleasing nose with several benefits.

    Minimal downtime

    You can get on with your activities right after your non-surgical rhinoplasty. General anesthesia is not used, so there is no recovery time and hardly any post-procedure side effects.

    The procedure takes less than an hour

    The procedure is short - it can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the amount of customization required.

    Results are immediate, with few side effects

    The results can be seen right after the procedure. The redness and swelling that is sometimes experienced can resolve in a matter of hours, and you will be able to enjoy your "new" straighter, smoother nose immediately.

    Results can last up to 12 months

    The smoother, more symmetrical contours resulting from the procedure can last up to a year. This will allow you to rest easy about the imperfections of your nose for a considerable amount of time.

    Results are temporary

    If, for any reason, you do not like the results of the procedure, you can reverse them. The results are not permanent. The dermal will metabolize naturally after six months.

    Less expensive than a surgical nose job

    A non-surgical rhinoplasty costs much less than a traditional nose job. Considering the convenience, safety and flexibility that this procedure offers, it is a cost-effective way to enhance the appearance of your nose.

    How Does It Compare to Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)?

    Non-surgical rhinoplasty is rapidly becoming a popular alternative to traditional surgical rhinoplasty, favoured by those seeking to avoid the permanent changes, discomfort, and extended recovery time associated with surgical nose reshaping.

    This minimally invasive approach forgoes general anesthesia, utilizing only topical numbing agents, thereby eliminating recovery time linked to anesthesia. In contrast to surgical procedures, non-surgical rhinoplasty carries a lower risk of significant side effects and infection, typically only causing temporary redness and swelling that dissipates within a few hours to days. On the other hand, surgical rhinoplasty can result in longer-lasting swelling and potential scarring that requires time to heal.

    One of the key advantages of non-surgical rhinoplasty is its reversibility. Patients can return to their original nose shape if the outcome doesn't meet their expectations, an option not available with the permanent results of surgical rhinoplasty. Additionally, the cost of non-surgical rhinoplasty is significantly lower than its surgical counterpart, making it an accessible option for those seeking cosmetic nose adjustments without the commitment and expense of surgery.

    Who Are Good Candidates for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

    The procedure works well for those who want to smooth out bumps on their noses, lift the tip of the nose or make it more prominent. It is also suitable for those who want to add volume. The procedure is not recommended for those who want a nose reduction.

    How to Prepare for the Treatment

    Patients are advised to avoid any blood-thinning medicines or supplements in the week before the procedure. Please inform the dermatologist if you are on any medications. The clinic will provide you with any other preparation instructions related to your procedure.

    What Does a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Session Look Like?

    The doctor will prepare you for the procedure following a consultation and agreement on the desired results. You will be required to lie down. Topical anesthesia will be injected into the area surrounding your nose. If desired, the dermatologist will inject the filler into the area around the nose and the bridge. A pinching sensation and some pressure may be felt at this stage. This procedure can last between 15 minutes to an hour.

    Recovery Timeline

    Some redness and swelling may result from the procedure. This inflammation typically starts to subsidize after a few hours, making the results visible. There is no recovery time, and patients should be able to continue their normal activities on the same day. The procedure's results should be fully visible within a week or two.

    Post-Treatment Care

    • Cold Compress: It's advisable to consult your doctor about using a cold compress or ice pack to alleviate swelling and redness following the procedure. This can help minimize discomfort and accelerate recovery.
    • Pain Management: Discuss the appropriate pain relief options with your doctor. Over-the-counter medications may be sufficient, but it's important to confirm which ones are safe to use, as some medicines can increase the risk of bruising or bleeding.
    • Handling the Treated Area: Avoid touching, rubbing, or applying pressure to your nose for the first few days post-procedure to prevent disrupting the filler's placement. Facial expressions that significantly move the nose, like scrunching, should also be avoided.
    • Activity and Skincare: Refrain from vigorous physical activities that can increase blood flow to the face, potentially exacerbating swelling. Steer clear of harsh skincare products or cosmetics that irritate the treated area. Gentle cleansing and moisturizing are recommended, but avoid directly applying heavy products on the nose for at least a week.
    • Hydration and Follow-Up Care: Staying hydrated is beneficial for overall recovery. More importantly, adhere to any specific aftercare instructions from your cosmetic dermatologist. These instructions might include guidelines on sleeping positions, sun exposure, and follow-up appointments to monitor your healing process.

    Ensuring thorough and proper post-treatment care is crucial for optimal outcomes and minimizing the risk of complications after a non-surgical rhinoplasty.

    Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty FAQs


    Is non-surgical rhinoplasty safe?

    Non-surgical rhinoplasty is considered safe when performed by qualified and experienced cosmetic dermatologists or plastic surgeons. As a minimally invasive treatment, it carries fewer risks compared to surgical procedures. However, as with any medical treatment, it's important to discuss potential risks and your medical history with your healthcare provider.


    Are there any side effects?

    The most common side effects include temporary swelling and redness at the injection sites. Some individuals may experience mild bruising or discomfort. Nausea is less common but can occur, particularly in those sensitive to needles or medical procedures. Although rare, there is a risk of filler migration, where the filler moves from the original site, which underscores the importance of choosing a highly skilled practitioner.


    How long will the results last?

    The longevity of non-surgical rhinoplasty results varies depending on the type of filler used and how the individual's body metabolizes the material. Typically, results can last from six months to over a year, with some fillers maintaining their effect for up to two or three years. The duration can also be influenced by the treated area's movement and the individual's lifestyle factors. Follow-up treatments may be necessary to maintain the desired outcome.
