Ever heard of a non-surgical nose job? Well, whether you’re new to the process, are interested in having the treatment yourself, or are considering having a second one, we’re here to help. In this post, we’ll look at what’s involved in a non-surgical rhinoplasty or ‘nose job’, and how we can help achieve a nose shape you feel happy and confident with.
So, what’s it all about?
First off, we want to stress that the process is non-surgical. There are no incisions needed, no scalpels involved, and minimal to zero downtime expected afterwards. It’s all done with a few well-placed injections (and a numbing agent if required).
How can a needle change my nose?
Well, the procedure uses dermal fillers to shape, sculpt and refine. Injecting just the right amount in just the right places can help to smooth out lumps, bumps and humps, while targeting the tip could create a more balanced look that feels harmonious with your other facial features.
What are the risks?
Injectables always carry a small risk and of course, there are side-effects to every kind of procedure. But, with needles, you’re most likely to experience only mild redness, swelling, bruising and tenderness. This typically eases in a matter of days, doesn’t usually affect day-to-day life and is often managed simply with over-the-counter pain relief. Any risks, of course, will be discussed with your during your consultation – and the decision to go ahead with any treatment is always down to you, with no pressure or judgement from ourselves.
What else could I try?
The only alternative is really a surgical procedure. However, surgery carries greater risks (such as infection and scarring), typically requires lengthy downtime and can be a more invasive, painful method. Surgery is also permanent – with non-surgical rhinoplasty, results will fade over time, so it’s your choice whether you top up or change your approach in the future.
