Can a non-surgical nose job make your nose appear smaller?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty, nose fillers, West Malling, Maidstone, Kent

The nose is considered the ‘anchor’ of the face since it plays a vital part in facial balance and attractiveness. Whether it’s related to size or shape, many people have insecurities about their nose – bumps, depressions, and concerns about crooked or hook-shaped noses are some of the most common concerns, all of which can be easily remedied with non-surgical rhinoplasty. But how does it work? And can filler really make your nose appear smaller?

What does a non-surgical nose job do?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a corrective procedure that works to straighten the nose using strategically placed injectables. Long-lasting hyaluronic acid filler is injected at specific points on the nose to straighten it and correct deformities, irregularities or bumps, lifting the tip of the nose to better define it. Non-surgical rhinoplasty offers an effective way to shape your nose proportionately with your face, both from the side and face on.

How does injecting filler into the nose make it smaller?

Faces are perceived by how light reflects off the surface of the skin. A non-surgical nose job cannot physically reduce the size of your nose, but by carefully injecting dermal filler along the bridge of your nose, tracing the areas where light reflects off it the most, a non-surgical nose job can nicely narrow the nose bridge, creating a smaller appearance.

We inject a hyaluronic acid filler through a tiny needle into the areas it is needed, almost like we are sculpting. Once done, we mould it a little bit, and you can continue with the rest of your day as usual. The entire non-surgical nose procedure takes only 10 to 15 minutes, and the results are instantaneous lasting for 12-18 months, making it a long-lasting solution without going under the knife.

What other issues can non-surgical rhinoplasty address?

Because of its convenience, affordability and minimal downtime, non-surgical rhinoplasty is growing in popularity. Compared to surgical rhinoplasty, non-surgical rhinoplasty has fewer serious risks, complications and side effects.

You may be a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty if:

  • You want to diminish the appearance of a bump on your nose
  • You want to improve your nose symmetry
  • The bridge of your nose is flat, and you would like more definition
  • Your nose has contour irregularities that you would like to smooth out
  • The tip of your nose is drooping downwards and needs lifting
  • You want to improve your side profile
  • Your nostril rims are too high.

Is a non-surgical nose job safe?

A non-surgical nose job is carried out using hyaluronic acid fillers to shape, contour and straighten the nose. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are derived naturally and are made with extensive laboratory research.

Over time the fillers dissolve naturally in the body as the body breaks the filler down, and the results of the treatment gradually fade. The filler breaks down and is re-absorbed by the body, just like the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid has gained a reputation for being safe, effective and an excellent alternative to surgery.

While it’s a rare, if injected into an artery, fillers can compromise the blood supply to your nose. Which, if not dealt with swiftly and appropriately, can cause the skin in the area to die. On rare occasions, dermal filler can cause the local blood supply to compress, resulting in scars and death of the tissues. Keep your face safe – do your research before treatment and choose a practitioner who is highly trained and experienced in treating this area. In the right hands, fillers are very safe treatments and can produce beautiful, life-changing results.
