What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Surgery isn’t something that everyone wants to undergo. But just because surgery isn’t for everyone, it doesn’t mean that you can’t have the nose you’ve always wanted. Non-surgical rhinoplasty involves using dermal filler to change your nose’s shape for up to twelve months. For people who are struggling with bumps on their nose or those who want to make it less angular, but do not want to commit to a surgery and the downtime, a non-surgical rhinoplasty may be the best solution.

It should be noted that changing the shape of the nose is never entirely risk-free. To determine whether non-surgical rhinoplasty is for you, it’s important to understand all the facts. Here we will talk about what you need to know about non-surgical rhinoplasty.

What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Using dermal filler components, nonsurgical rhinoplasty reshapes the nose without the need for surgery. A gel-like substance is placed beneath the skin to fill in areas of the nose and change nasal contours.

During the procedure, topical anesthesia might be applied to the area around your nose. The doctor will then inject the filler into the desired area, which might cause a slight pinch or pressure. The procedure is short, usually taking no more than 45 minutes, and recovery time is very minimal.

How Much Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Cost?

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is considered an optional cosmetic surgery, so it won’t be covered by health insurance.

Filler procedure costs differ, depending on what kind you choose, who provides it, and how many treatments are required. The provider should give you with a detailed cost breakdown after your consultation so that you know what to expect. The breakdown should include all the costs so you can easily tell what’s what.

Risks and Side Effects

Because it’s a minor cosmetic procedure, a little redness and sensitivity in the injection site will most likely be the only side effects of non-surgical rhinoplasty. Other possible side effects might include bruising, swelling, nausea, and filler migration. You should speak to your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Blurred vision
  • Allergic reactions symptoms such as hives
  • Redness or bruising that gets worse or spreads

What To Expect After The Procedure

Even though some swelling is normal immediately following your procedure, a couple of hours after the injection, the swelling should subside. You should notice your desired results improving as the redness and swelling lessens.

Using ice packs can help to reduce redness and inflammation. Within two weeks following your procedure, any redness or bruises should have completely subsided. Because the procedure is so minor, normal activities can be resumed on the same day as your non-surgical rhinoplasty.

A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a great option for those who wish to address minor issues with their nose without the need to go through surgery.
