Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

The nose is the central feature of the face. The non-surgical nose reshaping is a relatively new treatment concept with little down time. The innovative technique was made possible by:

  • High lifting potential dermal fillers
  • Long lasting dermal fillers

The nose reshaping procedure although straightforward, it requires an aesthetic eye and advanced training to achieve the changes possible to positively alter the shape of your nose with a few strategically placed injections. After all, small changes to the nose alter the person’s appearance considerably. There are many placement options each of which are unique to each individual patient.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and takes about 15 minutes, and sometimes referred to as the 15 minutes nose job. The results are visible immediately. Many patients can return to work or social activities straight away with minimal discomfort, mild swelling and minor bruising.

After a thorough interactive assessment, I can decide with you if you are a suitable candidate for this technique as well as the desired final shape you require. During the procedure I place a series of injections of long lasting dermal filler such as Radiesse or Ellanse to enhance the shape of your nose.

Ideal Candidate for the Procedure

Ideal nose shapes for correction are patients who wish to diminish the appearance of central hump or multiple bumps or irregularities on their nose. Also patients who have a flat nasal bridge, and wish to create a bridge or augment their original bridge, such as commonly requested in the Oriental patients and those who have a down turning nasal tip.

Nose reshaping is popular for both men and women. This is one cosmetic procedure where the ratio of the two genders availing of the correction are similar. Patients who have a non-surgical nose job may have to have the procedure repeated when the filler dissolves, and that could be every 12 months for Radiesse while Ellansé lasts much longer. There are 4 sub-types of Ellanse lasting for 2 years, 3 years or 4 years depending on the type of Ellansé sub-type used. The advantage of this is that if the patient does not like the result of the non-surgical rhinoplasty, it is not permanent, while if they do (most likely they do!) then we can use a filler with long lasting correction.
