Non-surgical nose jobs are the modern-day alternative to surgical rhinoplasty and are proving to be incredibly popular thanks to the effectiveness of dermal fillers.

If you’re considering undertaking any cosmetic or plastic surgery, including “injectable nose reshaping” it’s important to be prepared for your procedure. While the non-surgical nose job treatment is relatively quick, affordable and pain-free there are some things you should consider.

In this article, we share the answers to some of the common questions we get asked about undergoing a non-surgical nose job at our newest Cosmos Clinic in Melbourne. Reading these will give a better understanding of the procedure and help you determine whether non-surgical rhinoplasty is right for you.

What’s it like getting an “injectable nose job”?

One of the advantages of visiting our Melbourne cosmetic surgery clinic for an injectable nose job is that your problems areas can be treated in as little as 30 minutes and with a few injections.

The Melbourne Cosmos Clinic team aim to make you as comfortable as possible for your treatment. A topical anaesthetic cream will be applied to your nose to ensure the injectable procedure is pain-free. Once you’re numb and the treated areas defined, the dermal fillers will be injected into your nose to enhance your appearance.

This is a “walk-in, walk-out” procedure and you can return back to work the same day.

What can be achieved with the non-surgical nose reshaping?

Non-surgical nose surgery can effectively provide aesthetic benefits and balance your facial features. The cosmetic procedure can disguise bumps and indentations that may be affecting your body confidence.

It can correct abnormalities in the shape of the nose, making your nose shape appear smaller and proportionate to your face. Injectable fillers can also be used to improve the appearance of the bridge of the nose and nasal tip by creating a subtle increase in height.

How do the results compare to a traditional rhinoplasty?

There are several differences between a non-surgical rhinoplasty and a surgical rhinoplasty. In regards to the final results, the key differences are:

  • Nose fillers, while precise and effective, are best suited for minor aesthetic irregularities and contouring whereas a doctor can correction functional abnormalities and significantly reshape the nose during a traditional rhinoplasty procedure.
  • You’ll see the results of your non-surgical nose reshaping immediately. The final results of plastic surgery will be seen after the recovery period of 7-10 days and once the bruising and swelling subside.
  • The results of surgical rhinoplasty are permanent, whereas dermal fillers last for 18-24 months before being naturally dissolved.

What dermal fillers are used?

High-quality dermal fillers are used at the Cosmos Clinic in Melbourne for all non-surgical nose reshaping procedures to allow for greater control and natural results.

These dermal fillers are of a hyaluronic acid substance which is composed of natural complex sugar. As the body naturally produces this substance, the side effects are minimised and will eventually get absorbed by the body. Synthetic injectables, on the other hand, aren’t naturally absorbed. This will provide semi-permanent results with some of the substance remaining in the body.

How long will the results of the cosmetic procedure last?

The results of a non-surgical nose job using hyaluronic acid fillers typically last between 18-24 months.

What is the downtime required?

Another drawcard for non-surgical nose reshaping is that there is no need for downtime. Unlike a surgical procedure where patients require 7-10 days off work and bruising and swelling will persist for several weeks.

How much will it cost?

The cost of a non-surgical nose job in Melbourne will depend on your expectations of the treatment. Initial consultation to discuss the procedure and your desires for cosmetic surgery costs between $120-150 and is redeemable should you choose to proceed.

The cost of the non-surgical nose job starts from $700 – significantly less than surgical rhinoplasty.
