In the past, if you wanted to change the appearance of your nose, plastic surgery was your only answer. However, with the advancement of dermal filler technology, many Sydney residents are now opting for a non-surgical nose job over the traditional rhinoplasty procedure.

While non-surgical nose jobs are nothing new having been around for over 10 years now, Cosmos Clinic Sydney has seen a surge in the number of patients undergoing the cosmetic procedure. If you’re contemplating a non-surgical nose job, there are several things to consider that go beyond its popularity, but it’s interesting to know why many Sydneysiders and visitors to the city are drawn to the procedure.

Here, we take a look at the appeal of the non-surgical nose job and why it’s gaining traction.

It’s natural-looking results

One of the appealing attributes of non-surgical rhinoplasty using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is the natural-looking results. When in the hands of an experienced cosmetic surgeon or qualified injector, precise contouring of the nose can be achieved without scars or a plastic appearance.

By using small amounts of dermal filler at a time, the shape of the nose can be enhanced just enough to compliment the patient’s facial features. Perhaps that means camouflaging an indentation or minimising the size of the nasal hump.

Minimal downtime

With no requirement to go under the knife or general anaesthetic, the cosmetic treatment of a “liquid nose job” results in minimal downtime. In fact, it’s not uncommon for patients to visit Sydney Cosmos Clinic for a non-surgical nose job in their lunch break.

Unlike a traditional rhinoplasty treatment that takes 1-2 hours and is performed by a plastic surgeon in a hospital, non-surgical nose reshaping can be conducted in as little as 30 minutes depending on your desires. In addition, the end result is seen immediately and the patient can resume their normal activities after the procedure.

More invasive procedures tend to require greater downtime. It’s typically 7-10 days before patients return to work after rhinoplasty surgery and the bruising and swelling tend to subside after a few weeks.

Affordability

A big drawcard for filler treatments including the “injectable nose job” is that its affordability when compared to surgical procedures. The cost of a non-surgical nose job at our Sydney clinic starts at $700 depending on your individual situation and expectations.

While the results aren’t permanent, patients choosing to repeat the dermal fillers in the future may still enjoy a significant saving. This can make this procedure appealing, especially for those who can’t afford the upfront cost of surgical rhinoplasty or time off work to recover.

Increased social media buzz

There’s no denying it, social media has played a huge role in the surge in popularity of cosmetic surgery procedures, particularly non-surgical nose jobs.

Many of our Sydney patients are drawn to transformation photos on Instagram or Facebook highlighting the effectiveness of the cosmetic procedure. Not to mention the number of celebrities and influencers who have openly enjoyed the benefits of dermal fillers. The appeal of immediate results, minor pain and zero downtime are commonly discussed on social platforms. Quick and inexpensive “lunchbreak” cosmetic treatments have become commonplace.
