Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Really Work?

Though over 15 million people get plastic surgeries every year in the United States alone, a number that keeps growing, it can still be daunting to get under the proverbial scalpel. If you’ve been looking for ways to reach your cosmetic and aesthetic goals without undergoing surgery and without the consistent upkeep of makeup or creams and lotions, a non-surgical method may be possible. If you’re looking to subtly alter your nose then non-surgical rhinoplasty may be for you.

What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty? 

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that temporarily changes the appearance of your nose using something called dermal fillers. Though it is a non-surgical procedure, it should still be performed by a professional, ideally trained in cosmetic surgery, because of the concentration of blood vessels and proximity to the eyes of the nose area.

Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty As Effective As Surgical Rhinoplasty? 

It depends on what your aesthetic goals are. If you’re looking for a noticeable, but small change to the appearance of your nose, such as smoothing bumps, adding volume, or distinguishing the tip of your nose, then the effects can be similar. Non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot make your nose smaller, nor help you undergo more dramatic changes. Non-surgical rhinoplasties also do not last as long as surgical rhinoplasties, with most non-surgical rhinoplasties lasting about six months.

Non-surgical rhinoplasties are a great alternative to surgical rhinoplasties if you’re looking for small, volume adjustments.

What Does Recovery Look Like for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

With the entire procedure taking around half an hour, the recovery of most people typically includes minor ailments such as swelling or bruising around the nose. However, unlike surgical rhinoplasties, there is no downtime and you should be able to return to your routine right away.
