If you, like many others in Tampa, do not like the shape or size of your nose, there is a solution. A non-surgical nose job (rhinoplasty) is a way to reshape your nose to better fit your facial features and it can be done without any surgery. In the past, a surgical nose job was the only way to make any corrections to the nose and often this type of procedure involved high cost and long recovery time. A non-surgical procedure can be done in about an hour and the results will be fully evident in less than a week’s time. If you are unhappy with your nose, read on to find out if a non-surgical nose job procedure is the answer for you.
What a Non-Surgical Nose Job can Fix
A non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure can help correct many flaws and help allow for better balance across the entire face. Since the nose is one of the most prominent features, even a small irregularity can stand out and disrupt an otherwise beautiful appearance. A non-surgical procedure involves the use of dermal fillers to change the shape of the nose or of the facial tissue in the cheeks. A skilled plastic surgeon can use injectable fillers to add volume in strategic areas of the nose or mid-face region to alter the form. Some of the benefits that a non-surgical nose job can offer are:
- Reducing the size of a hump on the nose
- Making the nose look straight
- Increasing the projection of the nose – add volume to the tip
- Correcting flaws or deformities associated with a previous rhinoplasty or trauma
- Filling dips, depressions or contour irregularities
- Increasing the projection of the nose by building up the nasal profile
The one issue that a non-surgical procedure cannot do is to actually reduce the size of a large nose. However, fillers injected properly can change the symmetry or add contours that make the nose appear smaller on the face if that is the issue you wish to address.
Procedure for a Non-Surgical Nose Job
The actual procedure for a non-surgical nose job often takes less than an hour to accomplish in an outpatient setting. It is so quick that some have dubbed the operation the “15 minute nose-job” even though it does require a slightly longer office visit to complete. Usually, the dermal filler RADIESSE is used to provide the right amount of volume and profile. This brand is often chosen because it is one of the longer lasting injectable fillers on the market today. While the non-surgical nose job is not permanent, the effects can last for a year to 18 months before further treatment is necessitated to recreate the desired look.
Since this procedure does not involve surgery, a recovery period is not generally required. The patient can return to normal activities within the day although may experience temporary, slight bruising around the injection site for a few days. The final results will show within a day or two of the procedure, once any minor swelling has fully subsided.
