ProDerma has a varied selection of treatments that can be combined for an optimal result
Are you tired of feeling like you have to camouflage your nose? “The 15-minute nose job” is an advanced treatment that provides aesthetic benefits and balance in the face without requiring an operating theatre and general anaesthesia. With the right use of skin fillers, it is possible to recreate results that were previously only achieved with the use of advanced surgical treatments. You will not regret such an “intervention” as this procedure, unlike surgery, is completely reversible.
What is non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty or Liquid Nose Job as it is colloquially known, is a procedure that uses dermal fillers to achieve a more desirable shape to the nose without any invasive surgery. Called “the 15-minute nose job”, this is an advanced treatment that brings aesthetic benefits and balance to the face without requiring an operating theatre and general anaesthesia to perform. By camouflaging bumps or indentations in the nose, it creates a more symmetrical and appealing appearance. Also, correcting abnormalities in the shape of the nose, like straightening the tip and correcting a crooked nasal bridge, often results in the nose shape appearing smaller although the size has not changed.
Botox isn’t typically used for a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, but the neurotoxin does have its place when it comes to improving the nose. For instance, it can be used to relax the depressor septi, a small muscle that pulls the tip of the nose down and widens the nostrils. And if you get bunny-style wrinkles (often called “bunny lines”) on the bridge of your nose when you smile, Botox can soften them.
What are the benefits of non-surgical nose job compared to surgery?
- Duration: a nonsurgical nose job takes only about 20-30 minutes.
- Pain: involves minimal discomfort.
- Recuperation: there is no downtime.
- Cost: you’ll pay significantly less than you would for plastic surgery up front. The cost is only 10-15% of a surgical treatment.
- Control: your doctor can inject a little, then a little more, until they achieve the result you want.
- A liquid nose job can improve your results from a previous rhinoplasty, correcting lumps, bumps, or slight asymmetries. You do not need anaesthesia and have no downtime after treatment.
- The results last for at least 9-18 months.
- If you don’t like the results, they can be dissolved with Hyalase.
- The procedure can be used as a “test” for surgical rhinoplasty, by giving you an idea of what you might look like if you decide to go under the knife.
What can’t a liquid nose job do?
Filler can’t reduce the size of the nose, but a straight and even nose can create the illusion of a smaller nose.
What happens during a non-surgical nose job?
During your consultation, your doctor will listen to your goals and explain what can be achieved. The treatment itself typically takes less than 20 minutes. Your doctor will apply topical numbing cream about 5 minutes beforehand. The procedure itself is performed using multiple microdroplet injections. The doctor places small amounts of filler in the radix (where the forehead slope meets the nasal bridge), dorsum (bridge), sidewalls, tip, columella (the tissue that separates the nostrils), and alars (nostrils), as needed to correct irregularities. The most commonly requested corrections are increased tip definition and straightening of a dorsal hump. As it’s injected, the filler is massaged and moulded to the desired contour.
What can you expect during recovery after a non-surgical nose job?There’s no downtime after a non-surgical nose job. As far as side effects go, you’ll have mild swelling for up to two weeks, and maybe some redness or slight bruising that makeup can hide. You should avoid pushing on, massaging, or applying pressure to your nose for the first week.
How soon will you see non-surgical nose job results?
You’ll see a difference right away and final results appear up to two weeks later, after the swelling has gone down.
How long does a non-surgical nose job last?
How long your results will last is hard to predict, because everyone’s body metabolizes fillers differently. A good rule of thumb is that results will last at least 9-18 months. The fillers we use can last up to two years in an ideal situation, but for some patients those fillers don’t last that long. We’ve seen patients after three years who still have good results and on the other side of the spectrum are patients after three months who need to do it again.
Why choose ProDerma Scandinavia for your non-surgical nose job?
A non-surgical nose job is much less invasive than traditional rhinoplasty, but it’s not without risk. Placement of fillers in the nose can have, in the worst case, significant complications such as ischemia due to a blocked blood vessel, necrosis (cell and tissue death) and blindness due to arterial occlusion (complete artery obstruction) and embolization (clot formation) of the filler. Therefore, it is extremely important to choose a certified aesthetic doctor in order to be in absolutely safe hands.
