While the number of UK cosmetic surgery procedures decreased by 40 percent, non-surgical procedures have steadily grown in popularity.
In addition to more well-known treatments such as Botox and lip fillers, it is also possible to change the shape of your nose with non-surgical rhinoplasty.
A non-surgical nose job uses dermal fillers (hyaluronic acid) to add volume to your nose. This serves as a way to smooth bumps and give the appearance of a smaller, straighter nose. And, as the name suggests, this is a non-invasive procedure, without the pain, cost, and complications of surgical rhinoplasty.
Read on to find out more about how a nose filler injection could help you reshape your nose and improve your appearance in under an hour!
1. Correct a Variety of Imperfections
Those with hooked noses are ideal candidates for an injection nose job. As the before and after photos of blogger and influencer Sophie Milner show, dermal filler injections give her former hooked nose a smooth and straight appearance.
But, dermal fillers are not just for correcting bumps. Fillers can also be used to correct a variety of other imperfections on the nose.
This procedure can help to heighten and point the tip of the nose if it droops down as the filler will help to lift it up. Non-surgical nose jobs can also help to improve nose positioning and slightly crooked noses, as the filler will correct any sharp angles.
A filler nose job can also soften the appearance of the bridge and straighten and fill bumps or dents on the nose. And, dermal fillers can even reduce nostril size.
2. Harmonise Your Facial Features
A non-surgical nose job cannot make your nose smaller or thinner, and it cannot correct a broken nose.
But, while those with wide or large noses cannot directly alter these imperfections with a non-surgical nose job, fillers can help balance your facial features and improve your overall look.
Although your doctor will add volume with filler, the end result is a nose that appears smaller. This then makes the nose proportionate to the face, enhancing and harmonising it with the rest of your face to create a balanced appearance.
3. Improve Self-Esteem
Many aspects of the female form are undergoing positive revision. But, when it comes to noses, conventional beauty standards remain the same, showing a preference for smaller, straighter noses.
As a result, many people with bumps or hooks in their nose can experience low self-esteem and bullying from an early age.
But while rhinoplasty may seem too extreme, a filler nose job is a quick, easy and painless way to boost your self-esteem and get the look you have always dreamed of.
And, like the most effective changes we make to our appearance, it's also subtle enough to improve your look without making it obvious that you've had a cosmetic procedure.
4. An Affordable Option
This procedure is a fantastic, affordable option for those who want to change their appearance without going under the knife.
In fact, a key advantage for many people is that dermal nose fillers cost much less than surgical rhinoplasty, which can set you back thousands of pounds.
5. Immediate Results
Patients who undergo an injection nose job love that the results are immediate.
Because the procedure is non-invasive, although swelling and/or bruising can be present, this is usually minimal. As a result, patients do not have to wait to see their results in the same way that they would have to after a surgical rhinoplasty.
In fact, as you are fully awake you can view your appearance in a mirror to see your new nose take shape.
And, since the injections are small and precise, there is more control over the contours and shape created during the procedure, which is reassuring for patients to see.
6. No Downtime
As well as being a quick procedure which takes between 30 and 45 minutes, there is little to no recovery period.
As non-surgical nose jobs don't use a general anesthetic, there is no grogginess after the procedure.
And, unlike surgical rhinoplasty, which generally means some serious nose bandages for weeks, there is no downtime with dermal fillers nose jobs.
You may experience sensitivity for up to 24 hours and you should refrain from rubbing the treated areas for around 12 hours, but otherwise, you can resume normal activities right afterward.
7. Lasts for Up to 18 Months
After the procedure, the hyaluronic acid is naturally absorbed into the body and broken down over time. Results will vary from person to person due to the skin's natural genetic makeup and the way it reacts to the fillers. But, on average, a non-surgical nose job can last from 12 to 18 months.
As the results are fairly temporary, adjustments can be made as your nose begins to change back over time to ensure that you maintain a natural look.
8. It's Reversible
In the unlikely event that you're not happy with the result of your non-surgical nose job, it is also reversible.
Your doctor can use a dissolving substance to restore your nose to the shape it was before the procedure within 48 hours. For many people, this is a distinct advantage to the permanent and sometimes undesirable results of rhinoplasty. And, the fact that it is reversible offers added reassurance to those who have reservations about changing their appearance with cosmetic procedures.
