What is non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Many people are unhappy with how their noses look but are unprepared to undergo surgery. It’s for this reason that non-surgical rhinoplasty has become increasingly popular.
Also known as liquid rhinoplasty, this procedure uses dermal filler to correct small nasal bumps, drooping nasal tip, or an uneven nose. There really is no one description of what a perfect nose should look like. Your nose needs to be perfect for your face and not what you think looks good on someone else.
Factors such as gender, race, age and other facial features all need to be considered when altering the size and shape of the nose.
What to expect
Prior to your non-surgical rhinoplasty, we will apply a numbing cream to your nose. This will keep you comfortable throughout your procedure.
A series of small injections will then be used to inject filler into the areas of the nose that need reshaping. We use our knowledge of dermal fillers and an artistic eye to achieve a shape that suits your face. This may need to be done over several appointments.
The entire procedure won’t take longer than an hour, and there will be some mild bruising and swelling afterwards. However, no downtime is required after the procedure, so patients are free to return to work.
It is highly recommended that you refrain from touching or rubbing your nose for at least 24 hours to give the filler time to settle. You should also avoid strenuous exercises and high temperatures for a day or two afterwards.

Ideal candidates for a non-surgical nose job
Your medical history and skin will need to be evaluated to determine whether you’re an ideal candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty. However, almost anyone can undergo non-surgical rhinoplasty, provided they have realistic expectations about what can be achieved. This procedure is suitable if you are concerned about small bumps on the nose. It’s also ideal for anyone who wants to increase their nose’s size or make the tip more prominent. Dermal fillers can also be used to lift the tip of your nose and smooth out the contours of your nose profile. However, if you want to decrease the size of your nose or address larger bumps, surgery will be necessary. Non-surgical rhinoplasty also can’t address any issues related to functionality.
Can the procedure address large bumps in my nose?
No, the procedure can only treat small bumps in your nose. If you have large nasal bumps, you will need to undergo surgery.
Can the procedure correct issues related to functionality?
If you have breathing problems related to a deformity in your nose, then the procedure is not right for you. You will need surgery to correct it.
When will I see the final results of the procedure?
The results of your liquid nose job will be immediate, however there will be some mild swelling present at first. You will need to wait for the swelling to subside before seeing the final results of your procedure. In some instances, non-surgical rhinoplasty can last up to two years. However, this depends on how quickly your body metabolises the ingredients. If you’re unhappy with your results after the swelling has subsided, the effects can be reversed using a dissolving enzyme.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty side effects
The side effects associated with this procedure are fairly minimal. It is normal to experience redness, swelling, bruising, and sensitivity in your nose. This can last for a few days and can be managed using ice packs. Your doctor will also prescribe medications to reduce discomforts.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty downtime
There is little to no downtime required after your treatment. In fact, you can immediately resume your work and daily activities afterwards. Just make sure to follow the post-treatment instructions to achieve your desired results and prevent unwanted outcomes.
Reversing the results
If you are unhappy with your results for any reason, we can inject an enzyme into the nose to reverse the results of the treatment. This special enzyme dissolves the particles of the filler ingredient. As a result, your nose will return to its original appearance. The enzyme can also be injected in case a serious complication occurs.
Does the procedure hurt?
The level of pain and discomfort associated with non-surgical rhinoplasty injections is different for every patient. You may feel a slight pinch or stinging sensation, however, this is usually tolerable.
To prevent any discomfort during your treatment, we will apply a numbing cream to your skin. In addition, the needles used during the injection are very small, so they should not cause significant pain. After your treatment, we will provide you with specific instructions on how to manage discomforts, such as the use of ice packs and pain medications.
