"When performed by a skilled physician, a non-surgical rhinoplasty offers an opportunity to enhance the appearance of the nose by reshaping its structure, particularly the dorsum and tip, without resorting to surgery. These refined adjustments to the nasal contours have the potential to yield remarkable enhancements in the overall facial aesthetics." – Dr. Vishaal Govan
What is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
Let’s start with the basics. A non-surgical nose job, also known as liquid rhinoplasty, is a popular cosmetic procedure that provides an attractive alternative to traditional rhinoplasty. Instead of surgery, this non-invasive method utilizes injectable dermal fillers to reshape and lift the nose, resulting in a more defined and contoured appearance. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, which involves invasive techniques such as cutting and modifying cartilage and bone, liquid rhinoplasty offers several advantages, including a shorter recovery period, faster procedure time, and the ability to achieve prompt and long-lasting results.
At MD Skin Lab, we use hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to contour the nose and restore volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, is known for its ability to provide plumpness, smoothness, and a youthful appearance to the skin. By injecting hyaluronic acid under the skin, we can fill in nasal bumps, lift the nasal tip, correct nasal asymmetry, and enhance desired features. When opting for a non-surgical nose job, it is crucial to seek the expertise of a skilled physician injector at MD Skin Lab, as this procedure requires precision and expertise.
Let’s get into the benefits of a non-surgical nose job!
"As a doctor, I understand that one of the key advantages of opting for a non-surgical nose job is the avoidance of a lengthy recovery period. When individuals contemplate rhinoplasty, they often express concerns about the time required for recuperation and the potential risks associated with undergoing plastic surgery. The considerable ease and comfort offered by a non-surgical approach greatly influence the decision-making process for many patients, making it a popular choice." – Dr. Soreya Dhanji
Non-Invasive and Minimal Downtime
Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, which involves incisions, cutting, and modifications to the nasal structure, a non-surgical nose job is a non-invasive procedure. It eliminates the need for extensive recovery time and reduces the associated risks and complications of surgery. With minimal downtime, individuals can resume their daily activities relatively quickly after the procedure, making it a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.
Customizable and Precise Results
A non-surgical nose job offers high customization and precision in achieving desired results. The ability to tailor the treatment to each individual's unique needs allows for a more personalized approach, resulting in natural-looking and harmonious outcomes.
Here are some of the key areas that your physician can treat during this procedure:
Correcting Asymmetry: If you have asymmetry in your nose, where one side appears different from the other, a non-surgical nose job can help. By precisely injecting dermal fillers, your physician injector can strategically adjust the shape and volume to create a more symmetrical and balanced appearance.
Smoothing Out Dorsal Hump: A dorsal hump refers to a noticeable bump or prominence along the bridge of the nose. With a non-surgical nose job, dermal fillers can be strategically injected to smooth out the dorsal hump, resulting in a straighter and more harmonious nasal profile.
Refining the Nasal Tip: The tip of the nose plays a crucial role in the face's overall appearance. A non-surgical nose job can be used to refine and reshape the nasal tip. By injecting dermal fillers in specific areas, your physician injector can enhance the definition, projection, and contour of the nasal tip, achieving a more refined and balanced look.
Reducing Flaring of Nostrils: If your nostrils are too wide or have a flared appearance, neuromodulators like Botox or Dysport can help address this concern. By skillfully injecting the neuromodulators around the nostril area, your physician injector can create a subtle lifting effect, reducing the flaring of the nostrils and achieving a more proportional and pleasing shape. Also, by straightening the bridge of your nose, your physician injector can help you achieve the appearance of a more slim nose.
It's important to note that the specific treatment areas and techniques used during a non-surgical nose job will depend on your individual needs and goals. During your consultation at MD Skin Lab, your physician will assess your nose and discuss your desired outcomes, tailoring the treatment to address your specific concerns and achieve the desired improvements.
Quicker Procedure and Immediate Results
Compared to traditional rhinoplasty, which typically requires general anesthesia and longer operative times, a non-surgical nose job is a relatively quick procedure. Depending on the extent of the treatment, the appointment can be completed within 30-60 minutes.
Moreover, one of the remarkable benefits of this procedure is the immediate visibility of results. Individuals can witness the transformation in their nasal appearance right after the treatment, providing an instant boost in confidence and satisfaction.
Keep in mind that multiple sessions may be required to achieve the final desired result.
Reversible and Adjustable Outcomes
One of the advantages of a non-surgical nose job is the ability to adjust and fine-tune the results. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, where alterations are permanent, the effects of dermal fillers used in a non-surgical nose job are reversible.
If desired, adjustments can be made during subsequent appointments to further refine the shape or address any evolving preferences. This flexibility allows individuals to have more control over their final aesthetic outcome.
Reduced Risks and Side Effects
While all medical procedures have inherent risks, a non-surgical nose job presents fewer risks than surgical alternatives. Using Health Canada-approved dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based products, ensures high safety. Common side effects, such as temporary swelling, bruising, or redness, subside within a few days to a week. Proper aftercare and guidance from an experienced physician injector at MD Skin Lab can minimize potential discomfort, resulting in a smoother recovery process.
It’s important to note that a non-surgical nose job is a risky area for fillers to be injected. With that said, having a physician injector perform the treatment is crucial. Our physician injectors at MD Skin Lab specialize in advanced nose injection techniques. Dr. Vishaal Govan and Dr. Soreya Dhanji are trained at Dr. Ayad Harb’s 3-point nose job technique and completed their Aesthetic Intelligence Fellowship, making them highly qualified.
Although the longevity of the results varies for each individual, a non-surgical nose job can provide long-lasting improvements. The effects of dermal fillers can be seen for up to one year, allowing individuals to enjoy their enhanced nasal appearance for an extended period. Periodic touch-up appointments help to refine the result and maintain the desired outcome over time, ensuring continued satisfaction.
