Nose reshaping procedures are amongst the most popular cosmetic procedures in the US, with over 350,000 rhinoplasty surgeries performed each year.

While still widely popular, traditional rhinoplasty surgery requires significant downtime and recovery. Non-surgical rhinoplasty provides an ideal solution for patients who don’t wish to undergo surgery but still want to change the shape of their noses.

What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a “liquid nose job,” is a cosmetic procedure that uses injectable fillers, such as Restylane and Radiesse, to subtly alter the shape of the nose without the need for surgery.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is far less invasive than traditional rhinoplasty. Traditional rhinoplasty involves making incisions and breaking and manipulating the bones and cartilage of the nose. On the other hand, non-surgical rhinoplasty involves several injections of dermal fillers to achieve the desired aesthetic. It is normally performed without anesthesia and can take as short as twenty to thirty minutes.

The procedure adds volume to the nose, smooth out bumps or irregularities, and straighten the nose. The results of a non-surgical rhinoplasty are not permanent and the effects typically last for about six months to a year before the filler is metabolized and absorbed by the body.

Who is a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Good candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty are typically those who are looking to make minor adjustments to the shape of their nose or who are not ready for the commitment or potential risks associated with traditional surgical rhinoplasty.

It can be an effective option for people who have a small bump on their nose that they would like to smooth out, or who have lost volume in their nose due to aging or injury. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can also be used to straighten the nose or improve its overall shape and appearance.

However, it is not suitable for people wanting to make major changes to the nose, those who are looking for permanent results, or for treating severe structural abnormalities.

What Alternatives are there to Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

The main alternative to non-surgical rhinoplasty is traditional surgical rhinoplasty, which is a more invasive procedure that involves making incisions in the nose and reshaping the underlying bone and cartilage. Rhinoplasty surgery is typically more expensive and has a longer recovery time, but it can produce more dramatic and long-lasting results.

Wellesley Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty FAQs

The results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are not permanent and typically last for about six months to a year before the filler is metabolized and absorbed by the body. The exact length of time that the results will last can vary depending on factors such as the type and amount of filler used, the individual’s metabolism, and the skill of the practitioner.

Whether or not a liquid rhinoplasty is worth it will depend on the individual’s goals and expectations, as well as their budget and overall health.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be a good option for people who are looking to make minor adjustments to the shape of their nose without the need for surgery or who are not ready for the potential risks and downtime associated with traditional surgical rhinoplasty.

Non-surgical nose-jobs aren’t very painful and are generally well-tolerated, and most people do not experience significant discomfort.

Your practitioner may use a local anesthetic cream to numb the area before injecting the filler, which can help to minimize any discomfort. Some people may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days.

It is generally best to avoid touching or manipulating the area around the nose after a non-surgical rhinoplasty. This will minimize the risk of infection and ensure that the filler is evenly distributed, allowing the nose to maintain its new shape.

It is important to follow the post-procedure instructions provided by your practitioner, which may include avoiding activities that can cause pressure or trauma to the nose, such as wearing glasses or sunglasses, blowing your nose, or exercising vigorously. If you have any concerns or questions about how to care for your nose after the procedure, it is best to contact your practitioner for guidance.
