There is a very good reason why rhinoplasty is one of the most sought after plastic surgery procedures for all ages, ethnicities, and genders. The surgical technique can provide dramatic improvements in nose shape and size, ultimately improving appearance by reformulating features. However, what prevents some men and women from seeking surgical rhinoplasty is the high cost, long recovery, and the possibility of post-operative complications. In short, not everyone is ready for the commitment of surgery.
Fortunately, an innovative, non-surgical nose repair is now available, creating amazing results without the need for nasal surgery or days away from work. The revolutionary non-surgical rhinoplasty uses the same injectable soft tissue fillers that plastic surgeons use to smooth the skin and lift the fallen tissue. Although the benefits sound promising, can a non-surgical rhinoplasty pass the nose test? Yes, it can.
Benefits of a non-surgical rhinoplasty:
- No downtime. Bruising and swelling are minimal.
- The procedure takes less than an hour
- Results are immediate
- Changes are reversible
- Results last approximately 12 months
- The procedure is less expensive than surgery
- No anesthesia is needed during a non-invasive rhinoplasty, which means that patients can return to their normal routine in a matter of hours.

Since non-surgical rhinoplasty does not involve any incision, suture, or anesthesia, the technique can be safe for almost anyone. The ideal patient will look for slight to moderate improvements in the shape or appearance of their nose. The benefits of a non-surgical rhinoplasty are temporary, lasting 12 to 18 months, making the treatment perfect for someone who wants to try changes without having to undergo surgery.
Best of all, using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, the results of hyaluronic acid fillers can be reversed. For those patients who like what they see, and update treatment can be performed safely when the benefits start to decrease, keeping the original results. However, a non-surgical rhinoplasty is not for everyone. Those patients seeking more dramatic results may not find the benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty enough to meet their needs. The treatment works well on external issues, but a non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot correct internal issues, such as deviated septum or nasal function. Also, since non-invasive rhinoplasty needs to be repeated every one to two years,
