What is a non-surgical nose job?
What is the procedure used for?
To resize or reshape the nose non-invasively.
Who is the treatment suitable for?
Anybody who would like to change the appearance of their nose but does not want to have surgery. The technique can be used on any of the following:
- A hump on the nasal bridge.
- Left to right, or right to left asymmetry.
- A depressed nasal bridge.
- A nose that is small, or lacks definition
If you have had previous nasal surgery, it is unlikely that you are suitable for this procedure.
What happens during the procedure?
Our surgeon Dr Maini will apply a local anaesthetic if necessary to make you comfortable, and then the filler will be inserted into your nose. There are two methods for this - either a very fine needle is used, or a blunt tube (cannula) is inserted through a pinprick. The latter is our preferred method with the cannula because it is much safer.
It is our normal practice to do the treatment over 2-3 sessions, to gradually add the filler, so as not to cause build up of excessive pressure.
Doing this treatment in one go has risks in some people, as the blood supply in the nose is precarious and can be compromised.
What are the side effects or risks?
The procedure is very safe but you may experience:
- A small amount of bruising or swelling.
- Redness at the needle entry points.
We offer 24-hour care from Dr Maini following your procedure in case of any issues. This is unlikely, but we like to be careful.
What results can I typically expect?
You will see the initial results immediately and this will improve further after your follow-up sessions.
Depending on the type of filler used, your result should last at six to 18 months. Most people don't need any top up for 12 months, but this depends on your skin quality and whether or not you smoke.
Before your procedure
We offer a full, in-depth consultation with our doctor, who will give you guidance on whether this procedure is suitable for you, and whether we can meet your expectations.
There is very little downtime after having filler injected and you can usually return to normal activities straight away.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can any trained injector perform this procedure?
No! Be careful, this is a treatment that MUST be done by an experienced, qualified medical practitioner. The reason is that it requires a great deal of care with regards to the blood supply of the nose. If this is damaged due to careless technique the nose can be permanently damaged.
