Estimated Read Time: 3 minutes 48 seconds – Published 30/07/2021
For many years if you did not like your nose, the only way to change it was by going under the knife and having a painful and lengthy recovery time. However, these days no one bats an eyelid when a celebrity steps out onto the red carpet with a new nose and no signs of surgery thanks to the non-surgical nose job using dermal fillers. Nose jobs and fillers, in general, have become hugely normalised, and the skillsets of the doctors performing the procedures ensure that you often can’t tell when people have had a few tweaks to perfect their nose.
The liquid nose job is ideal for people searching for a non-surgical alternative to rhinoplasty, with the advantage of being reversible while giving you instant results with next to no recovery time. Dr. Matla’s non-surgical nose job takes fifteen to thirty minutes to perform and helps to restore symmetry and balance to your face.
How Does The Non-Surgical Nose Job Work?
The procedure will start with a consultation with your doctor to discuss your aesthetic goals and any questions you may have. Dr Matla can tailor your procedures to specifically fit your goals by using his medical expertise and knowledge.
Small amounts of dermal fillers will be injected into the areas of your nose and could include the bridge, tip and sides. Your doctor will massage the filler into place as it settles into your deeper skin layers and sculpts it to create a smooth, more symmetrical appearance. You might feel pressure or a slight pinching feeling whilst this is done.
What Filler is used in our Non-Surgical Nose Job?
Hyaluronic acid is used for a non-surgical nose job, and this component is naturally found within the body. Hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge and can retain large quantities of water to keep the skin plumped and soft.
What Can it Help With?
Some people find that their nose shape or size does not always flatter their facial structure, which can have a significant impact on their confidence. A non-surgical nose job is tailored to the individual patient, and by injecting dermal fillers into specific areas, we can sculpt the nose to resolve a range of issues such as:
- Smooth out small bumps in your nose, camouflaging them and creating a smooth side profile.
- Correct the appearance of a septum deviation.
- Make the tip of your nose more prominent or lift the tip.
- Add volume to your nose.
- Refining the shape of the nose after a surgical rhinoplasty procedure.
A non-surgical nose job from Dr Matla can help balance your facial features and the proportions of your face without any invasive surgery. Some patients with more prominent noses are hesitant to try this treatment as they think it might make their nose look bigger. However, by placing dermal fillers in precise areas of the nose, we can reduce the nose’s appearance, which gives the illusion of a smaller nose.
PREPARING FOR THE PROCEDURE
As this procedure is minimally invasive and often dubbed as the “15-minute nose job” it should be no surprise that there isn’t much preparation needed beforehand. That being said, there are a few things you can do to improve your experience, such as avoiding anti-inflammatory medication (ibuprofen, high dose aspirin) and blood-thinning supplements the week before the procedure. Boosting your vitamin K intake can help to reduce the risks of bruising so try to eat lots of green, leafy vegetables in the weeks before and ensure you’re drinking plenty of water before your appointment.
AM I SUITABLE FOR THIS PROCEDURE
This procedure is suitable for most people as it is non-invasive and uses hyaluronic acid filler, which is naturally found in the body. However, hyaluronic acid injections must not be used in combination with peeling, laser or ultrasound-based treatments in pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers. You shouldn’t get this treatment if you have a known allergy or hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid. If you are still uncertain if this procedure is suited to you, a consultation with Dr Matla will ensure you receive the safest, personalised treatment plan available and should put any concerns to rest.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS TREATMENT COST?
The “liquid nose job” is a great, affordable option for people who want to change the shape or appearance of their nose but do not want surgery, and prices start from £350 for this treatment.
ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?
As with all injectable procedures, you should expect some mild bruising, swelling or redness; however, most people heal within a few days. There is no recovery time necessary, which means you can carry on as usual, although you may briefly experience some slight tenderness of the nose area.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
A non-surgical nose job can last anywhere from 9 months to a year.
WHO CAN PERFORM A NON SURGICAL NOSE JOB?
The non-surgical nose job requires a highly-skilled, medical professional to carry out the procedure. By choosing an experienced doctor, you are ensuring that you will get the best treatment plan for you as they will have a fully developed understanding of the procedure as well as human anatomy and how to balance out the features safely and effectively. Choosing your practitioner is a vital step in achieving your aesthetic goals, and researching your doctor is highly recommended.
The aftercare of this treatment is very minimal compared to rhinoplasty surgery; however, for the first 72 hours after your treatment, we recommend you:
● Avoid alcohol
● Don’t do any sport
● Avoid taking a plane
● Do not sleep on your side or face
We suggest avoiding wearing glasses for the first 48 hours after your treatment to ensure the filler is not moved. However, if this is not realistic for you, then we suggest your glasses are placed lightly on the bridge of the nose when possible.
We recommend that you avoid dental treatments, aesthetic procedures, sun exposure and extreme temperatures (saunas, hot baths, ice packs) for two weeks following your treatment.
With Dr Matla’s wealth of experience and ability to create a unique course of high-quality treatments for each patient, you’re only a consultation away from reaching your personal aesthetic goals.
