What is it?
Patients who desire to improve the appearance of their nose will often need a rhinoplasty. But many patients with minor or less severe irregularities of the nose can have a non-surgical reshaping of the nose with a dermal filler injection, soft tissue augmentation, which is painless, safe, with a quick recovery and minimal downtime.
A non-surgical nose reshaping is an excellent and affordable option for patients who would like to achieve a more pleasing appearance without the risks of a rhinoplasty.
What is a non surgical nose job?
The non-surgical non invasive nose job or reshaping or non-surgical rhinoplasty involves the use of a dermal filler (Radiesse or Juvederm 4) injected to reshape and contour the nose / soft tissue augmentation, to achieve a natural aesthetic appearance, in a quick, safe and effective out-patient treatment.
How much does it cost?

Who is the ideal candidate?
Any patient with a deformity of the nose who desires to improve the shape may be suitable for a non-surgical rhinoplasty / nose reshaping. Patients with a large nose or severe deformities will require a full rhinoplasty but with less severe deformities the Dermal filler can reshape the bridge, dent, bump or tip of the nose to the desired shape with soft tissue augmentation.
Patients who have irregularities or deformities following a rhinoplasty, are ideally treated with the non-surgical nose reshaping with dermal fillers, avoiding revisional surgery. Also, patients who have deformities of the nose either from birth or from injuries can achieve significant improvement without the pain, risk and recovery associated with a Rhinoplasty.
What do I need to know before the procedure?
Initial consultation will determine the goals of treatment, make note of any associated abnormalities or asymmetry and plan the optimum non-surgical nose reshaping to achieve the ideal result in each patient. Treatment is carried out in the out-patient setting and takes 15 - 20 minutes. A local anaesthetic injection is used to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible. During the procedure you will be able to interact with your doctor to achieve your suitable new nose. After the procedure most patients are able to resume normal activities immediately.
What is the difference with surgery?
One of the major advantages of the nose job compare to surgical rhinoplasty is obviously the cost and complication involved.
When can I see the results?
Improvement in nose shape will be seen immediately following non-surgical nose reshaping. Any swelling will resolve in 1 week.
How long does it last?
Depending on the dermal filler used the results can last between 6 to 18 months. Repeat treatments are recommended to maintain the nose shape as desired.
What are the side effects?
Reactions following the treatment are almost unheard of but some individuals can experience common reactions such as discomfort, swelling and bruising which will usually resolve in 3 -5 days. Use of Arnica tablets and Arnica cream will aid rapid healing following treatment.
