How can I have a non-surgical nose job?

Traditionally, nose reshaping has been done with rhinoplasty. It remains the gold standard for nose reshaping, but for those who do not want a permanent change, or for those who would like to try a temporary procedure prior to rhinoplasty, injectable nose enhancement may be appropriate.

Injectable nose shaping can only build on a nose. Bumps or protrusions cannot be removed, rather, the hollows that may exacerbate the appearance of bumps or protrusions can be filled in. For example, if there is a prominent nasal bridge (where glasses usually sit), then the hollow area above it can be filled to reduce the appearance of the bridge. Another example of non-surgical nose shaping is when a nose is deviated to one side, the other side can be filled to make it appear straighter.

The nose is also prone to ageing, and as you get older, the nasal tip tends to droop. This can also be corrected by injecting areas that have drooped to create a perceivable nasal lift.

Generally, a shorter lasting and reversible filler such as filler type R/ JU can be used to ‘test’ to see if the treatment leads to an aesthetic improvement. The longevity of fillers type R / JU are about 6 months in the nose. If one is happy with the improvement, the second option is usually to try a longer lasting filler like Radiesse.

Radiesse can also be used as a first line filler for the nose, as it has a similar feel to the nose and has greater lift and longevity than fillers type R / JU. Radiesse is not reversible however, and tends to last from 12 to 18 months.

Usually only 1 syringe of filler type R or JU is required or a 0.3mL syringe of Radiesis required to shape noses.
