Did you know that in many cases you can enhance the look of your nose without surgery and the downtime that it requires? The techniques used for these kinds of “nose jobs” usually involve the use of dermal fillers, which can reshape, define, or even augment the nose without the lengthy recovery time after a surgery—and at a substantially lower cost too.
Depending on the filler used, most non-surgical rhinoplasty results can last between 8 to 12 months. This impermanence also allows patients who don’t wish to commit to the permanent changes of a nose surgery to test the waters—and many find that they’re more than adequately pleased with the results of these non-invasive forms of treatment.
The Benefits of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Dermal fillers can be targeted to specific areas of the nose to smooth out wrinkles or to add volume to areas of the nose in order to straighten and improve a patient’s profile. Other benefits of “non-surgical nose jobs” are that they have very little to no down time and that they are a fraction of the cost of a surgical rhinoplasty.
Juvederm™, and Restylane® are common choices for non-surgical rhinoplasty. Selecting the one that is right for you depends on your unique anatomy, aesthetic goals, and the advice given to you by your medical professional.
Who Should Not Have Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is generally intended for the purpose of aesthetic enhancement. Therefore, those patients who need corrective rhinoplasty performed, to correct breathing problems due to a congenital condition or after an accident will not benefit from these kinds of treatments, and will still need to have traditional rhinoplasty surgery. However, after that surgery takes place, the use of dermal fillers may be desirable for ongoing maintenance when concerned about the appearance.
How Long Does It Last?
Dermal fillers are not permanent. Patients generally have a window of eight to fifteen months of effectiveness before they need to have the treatment done again, but this process is relatively simple and straightforward—most appointments will take under half an hour. If the patient is pleased with the results, they may continue to have these kinds of treatments for years.
Are You a Candidate for a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
As long as you’re in good physical health, the odds of being a patient who could benefit from the non-surgical approach of dermal fillers for the nose are quite high. These kinds of treatments offer a non-surgical, affordable way to smooth wrinkles, reshape, and redefine the nose. To learn more about this style of cosmetic treatment, its benefits, and an approximate cost, the best thing you can do will be to have a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon trained in the application of dermal fillers.
