Everyone has a nose. Right there, smack in the middle of their face for all the world to see. Whether it’s shaped like a ski slope, cute as a button or a bit dented and bumpy, it’s there. For some people, their nose is fine and nothing they pay much attention to. For others, their nose is a constant reminder of something they dislike about themselves.
It used to be that the only way to make changes was to undergo a rhinoplasty – a surgical reshaping of the nose. Thanks to modern medical technology there is now a non surgical option.
What is a Non Surgical Nose Job?
A non surgical nose job is, in short, a less expensive and less invasive procedure than the traditional rhinoplasty that can improve the appearance of the nose. Because of its simplicity, this procedure requires very little downtime and can be performed in a single visit; some practitioners have even referred to it as the 20-minute nose job!
What Does it Do?
The main focus of a non surgical nose job is to alter the appearance and reshape the nose to smooth bumps, dips and any irregularities you find displeasing. By using injectable fillers instead of undergoing surgery, small changes can easily be made to the nose.
What are the Benefits?
If you are simply looking to make just a few adjustments to your nose, than a non surgical nose job is definitely the route you should take. Besides being less expensive, other benefits include:
- Minimizing a hump on the nose
- Correcting contour irregularities such as depressions
- Fixing mistakes from former trauma or a rhinoplasty
- Altering the appearance of the nose to seem straighter
- Build the nasal profile
- Reshaping the tip of the nose
Other benefits include an overall better self-image, fast healing period and no need to block out days or weeks to recover from plastic surgery.
In addition, a non surgical nose job eliminates the risks commonly associated with rhinoplasty including bleeding, infection or scarring. In fact, the most common side effect of the non surgical nose job is simply minor localized swelling and the chance of moderate bruising.
How do I qualify for a Non Surgical Nose Job?
If you have been considering rhinoplasty, you are probably an excellent candidate to receive this procedure instead! If you are looking for reliable results that are quick and easy, as well as affordable, it is always worth having a conversation with your doctor about your options. However, if you suffer from a serious deformity or severe breathing difficulties, a non surgical nose job might not be for you.
