For those displeased with the nose on their face, a non-surgical nose job is a way to improve appearance without having to take weeks off from work or from other activities. There are many people in Tampa that are unaware of the benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty but this procedure can help change the contours of the nose or surrounding tissue to help fix several common complaints. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can reduce the appearance of a hump on the nose, extend the tip to enhance the profile as well as correct many other nasal flaws.
What is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty is a nose job that is done using dermal fillers rather than a scalpel and stitches. A skilled plastic surgeon can use a combination of dermal fillers to fill depressions or add volume to the nose or in the surrounding tissue to create desired look. While not a permanent fix, the procedure can last for three months up to eighteen months depending on the filler used and the area treated. For many, this is a way to “try on” a new nose before undergoing permanent nose job surgery. For others, a non-surgical nose job is a way to improve their appearance for a specific event or period of time.
According to Tampa facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Dominic M. Castellano of the Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, a non-surgical nose job can “accomplish a multiple of objectives. A non-surgical procedure can reduce the appearance of a bump or curve in the nose, make the nose look straighter or increase the projection at the tip of the nose. It can also correct deformities associated with a previous treatment or trauma, fill depressions or remove scars.” For a patient seeking to reduce the overall size of their nose, a non-surgical nose job may not be the best course of action depending on how much of a reduction is desired. It can be used to mask the size of a large nose by adding volume to the cheeks and chin areas, but cannot diminish the actual length or width of the proboscis.
Little to No Downtime Required for Non-Surgical Nose Job
One of the benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty is that there is literally no downtime required for recovery. As with other dermal filler procedures, the nose job is done with a series of injections rather than any incisions. This means that there are no wounds to heal or stitches to remove. The dermal filler injections take an hour or less to complete and the results will appear fully in three to five days post procedure. Other than some occasional minor bruising, there are generally no side effects from dermal filler treatments. So in most cases, the majority of patients people return to work the same day or following day after having a non-surgical nose job. There are no bandages or coverings to wear after the injections are done so most people resume normal activities right away.
The lack of recovery time is another reason why some patients choose a non-surgical nose job. Dr. Dominic states that he has seen a large increase in patients seeking non-surgical procedures because they are much easier to schedule and can provide most of the same benefits of surgical rhinoplasty… even if they do not last as long. This makes having a nose job a more realistic procedure for many who cannot take a long time off from work. This also allows people to more easily fix nasal flaws in order to look more attractive for a specific event such as for a wedding or reunion. Dr. Dominic also says that he will sometimes recommend a non-surgical nose job for someone who is considering surgical rhinoplasty. This helps a patient to really see how much their nose can be improved and feel more comfortable scheduling surgery once they have undergone a dermal filler treatment.
