Find out everything you need to know about the non-surgical nose job and why people turn to the procedure instead of traditional surgical methods.
In the last couple of years, non-surgical nose jobs have become extremely popular in the medical cosmetic field –and for a good reason! Not only is it an inexpensive alternative to the traditional rhinoplasty, but it also less risky and is accompanied with little to no recovery time with immediate results.
What is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
For those of you who are unaware, a non-surgical nose job uses dermal fillers to fix the face’s side profile by injecting filler into the bump or other impurities that are located directly above the nose to create a straighter and smoother appearance from both the front and side.
It is also common for doctors to inject the derma filler into the nose’s tip to make it appear smaller and refined.
Are the results permanent?
Generally speaking, a non-surgical nose job procedure lasts anywhere from a year to a year and a half and will gradually begin to fade. However, this is dependent upon how quickly your body dissolves the derma filler.
The critical thing to remember is that you can book another appointment and have the doctor inject more filler into the nose, as commonly seen in lip injections.
However, suppose you do enjoy the results of your non-surgical nose job. In that case, it is essential to understand that it is possible for the amount you spend on the non-surgical treatment will add up over time to the amount of surgical rhinoplasty. Therefore, it is ultimately your decision if you would like to pay the cost upfront or a fraction of the price every year or so.
Does the procedure hurt?
The non-surgical nose job is accompanied by minor discomfort compared to that of a surgical nose job. Because the doctor injects the filler into different areas of your nose, you will experience a slight pinch as the needle enters your skin.
However, it is nothing more than what you would expect from receiving a shot at the doctor’s office.
What is the recovery like?
After your procedure is finished, there is a chance that you will experience some minor tenderness, swelling, or slight bruising around the injection site. It is recommended that patients ice their noses as they feel necessary.
However, you are welcome to go about your day and not worry about any severe pain symptoms expected with a surgical nose job.
How much is the non-surgical nose job?
The pricing of a non-surgical nose job will vary with each case. Patients also need to consider the region they are in and which doctor’s office they have contacted.
However, you can expect the cost to be anywhere from $500 to $2000 depending on the unique characteristics of your nose.
Can a non surgical nose job fix my breathing?
Unfortunately, because there are not permanent changes being made to the structure of your nose, the non-surgical nose job can only help smooth and balance your front and side profiles. Suppose you do suffer from a deviated septum.
In that case, your doctor may provide his professional opinion and inform you that you would benefit more from a surgical nose job as opposed to a non-surgical one.
Things to consider before following through with the procedure
Before following through with the procedure, consider your nose’s unique circumstances and whether it is worth proceeding non surgically rather than surgically. Remember that a non-surgical solution is more for aesthetic purposes rather than medical/aesthetic.
It would help if you also considered whether you are willing to pay the yearly cost of injecting derma fillers rather than paying a lump sum the first time around.
If you are still undecided on whether or not a non-surgical nose job is worth it for you and your nose, there is no harm in booking a consultation with a doctor who will be able to work through your unique desires and determine the right course of action.
