What is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
A non-surgical nose job is also known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty or a 15-minute nose job.
Although you might think that 15 minutes is a bit of an exaggeration, it is not a hoax! Not only can it be accomplished in that short amount of time, but over 90% of the people who have undergone this non-surgical, facial cosmetic procedure give it the thumbs up and are pleased with the results.
Contour Features And Restore Volume
The entry of injectable fillers into the market has opened the door to many non-intrusive options for people who are little nervous about plastic surgery. A naturally-occurring substance in our skin called hyaluronic acid has been synthetically produced into a gel-like substance. This liquid is safely injected into areas of the face to contour features and restore volume. In 2002, a facial plastic surgeon realized that fillers could be injected to achieve moderate nose shaping. Dermal fillers are able to:
- Straighten the profile, if there is a nose hump or bump
- Make the nose more symmetrical with other facial features
- Straighten the appearance of a crooked nose
- Augment a very tiny nose
- Raise the bridge and define the nose tip
There are several things injectable fillers cannot change because they fill or augment areas. Injections are unable to narrow wide nostrils or shrink the size of a large nose. Facial plastic surgery in the form of rhinoplasty is necessary to minimize these problems. Juvéderm, Restylane, and Teosyal are the most popular hyaluronic acid fillers used by dermatologists and facial plastic surgeons today. Dr. Cory Torgerson prefers these products when sculpting a non-surgical nose job, as they have an excellent safety record and provide excellent results.
Making Your Non-surgical Rhinoplasty as Comfortable as Possible
In order to make your non-surgical rhinoplasty as comfortable as possible, a topical cream is applied to numb the skin so injections are not felt. The dermal fillers also come with lidocaine as part of them, which works quickly to numb the injection area and make the procedure more comfortable. The procedure takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes, and the results are immediate! A vial of filler costs approximately $1,000 (this price is subject to change over time).
You will retain your non-surgical nose job for the next 9 to 12 months, after which your body will metabolize the product, and the look will need to be maintained. If there is a downside to this procedure, it would be the necessity of having to re-inject in order to maintain the appearance you love. A surgical rhinoplasty obviously costs more money and requires more downtime, but the results are long lasting.
