A non-surgical nose job, also known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty, utilises hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to improve the shape of the nose without the need for surgery. Even though filler is being added to the area, the appearance of the nose actually becomes smaller.
Using injectable fillers in the nose offers a less invasive alternative to traditional rhinoplasty surgery, allowing for immediate results with minimal downtime. A nose filler treatment can address various aesthetic concerns, including:
Symmetry Enhancement: Fillers can correct a deviated or crooked nose, blend out a dorsal hump, or refine the nasal tip, delivering a more symmetrical look.
Camouflaging Imperfections: Dorsal humps, bumps, or hooks on the nasal bridge can be smoothed out, giving the nose a more even profile.
Balancing Facial Features: By adjusting the shape of the nose including adding height to the bridge of the nose.
Post-Surgery Refinement: For after a surgical rhinoplasty but are left with minor imperfections, fillers can provide the finishing touches.
Addressing Other Minor Concerns: Whether it’s a slight tweak or more significant change, fillers offer a versatile treatment option to improve the appearance of the nose.
What are dermal fillers and how do they work in the nose?
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a gel-like substance derived from a natural plumping component already in the skin. When used for non-surgical nose reshaping, filler can smooth bumps, lift the nose tip, and fill depressions, offering immediate enhancements. The body will naturally break down and slowly absorb the filler over time, the results from a nose filler treatment usually last an average of 18-24 months.
The results from nose filler are also able to be maintained long-term with periodic touch up treatments as needed. Additionally, any unwanted results or potential complications can be quickly reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, making fillers a flexible and safe choice for nose shape adjustments.

WHAT DOES A NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY INVOLVE
Having the Procedure
What happens during an appointment to get dermal filler in the nose?
A liquid rhinoplasty treatment uses dermal fillers for nose reshaping without the need for invasive surgery. During the appointment to have nose filler, the following steps are common:
Consultation: The appointment begins with a consultation to assess the nose and desired result outcome.
Preparation: The treatment area is cleaned, and a topical local anaesthetic numbing cream is applied.
Injection: Using a fine needle or cannula, dermal filler designed to be used in the nose is injected into precise areas of the nose.
Shaping: After the injections, the nose area may be gently moulded, or the filler shaped and into the contours, to achieve the desired results.
Immediate Results: One of the benefits of a filler treatment in the nose is that results are visible almost immediately.
Less Downtime: There might be some minor swelling, redness, or bruising, which may slightly obscure the final results, but these side effects typically subside within a week.
Result Longevity: Depending on the individual, the results of a non-surgical nose job whilst temporary, typically last an average of 18-24 months.
The appointment length typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes, and most patients resume their normal daily activities following treatment, however this does depend on the individual. Aftercare information will be given, with a follow up appointment scheduled for about two weeks post-treatment.
Who is a good candidate for a liquid rhinoplasty with dermal fillers?
A good candidate for a non-surgical nose job are individuals looking for subtle enhancements or corrections to their nose shape without undergoing invasive surgery, including:
To smooth out small bumps or irregularities on the bridge of the nose.
To correct asymmetry and improve the appearance of the nose to compliment other facial features.
To augment the nasal tip or elevate a flat nasal bridge.
A preference for a procedure with minimal downtime and immediate results.
It’s essential for individuals wanting nose filler to always see a qualified injector to confirm their suitability for the procedure, and reduce the possibility of complications occurring.

Is there any downtime after a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
The downtime after having a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure is minimal when compared to the recovery time needed after a surgical rhinoplasty. Most patients can resume their normal daily activities following treatment, but this will depend on the individual and their activities. Experiencing small side effects is perfectly normal, and these can include:
Swelling and Bruising: Some patients may experience slight swelling or bruising at the injection sites. This typically subsides within a few days to a week.
Tenderness: The treated area might feel tender or sensitive for a day or two post-treatment.
Redness: There might be some redness around the injection sites, which usually fades within a day or two.
To aid with recovery and expedite any downtime following an injectable treatment, patients are advised to:
Avoid Touching: It’s crucial to avoid touching or pressing on the treated area for the first 48 hours. This helps the filler to settle properly without being displaced.
Cold Compress: If you experience swelling or bruising, you can gently apply a cold compress without pressing down too hard. Ice should not be applied directly on the skin.
Limit Physical Activity: Heavy exercise or any intensive activities that increase facial blood flow should be avoided for at least two days post-treatment.
Stay Upright: For a few hours after the procedure, try to stay upright and avoid lying down flat. This helps in preventing any potential filler migration.
Avoid Alcohol and Blood Thinners: Alcohol and blood-thinning medications can increase the risk of bruising. It’s best to avoid them for 24-48 hours after the procedure.
Avoid Extreme Temperatures: For a few days stay away from extremely hot places like saunas and steam rooms.
Stay Vigilant: If you observe any unusual side effects or have concerns about the treated area, it’s imperative to contact your professional immediately.
When is surgical rhinoplasty a better option than a liquid rhinoplasty procedure?
The choice between a non-surgical nose job and a surgical rhinoplasty surgery depends on the specific needs and desired outcomes of the individual, and not all those who wish to have non-surgical nose reshaping are candidates. Having a plastic surgery procedure, such as a surgical rhinoplasty with a plastic surgeon, may be a more suitable treatment choice in situations including:
Structural Changes: If there is a need for significant reshaping, severe asymmetry, or correcting structural issues like a dorsal hump or a crooked nose.
Nasal Tip Reduction: To reduce the size of the nose, including refining and augmenting the tip of the nose.
Breathing Issues: For individuals with breathing problems due to the nose structure, such as a deviated septum.
Permanent Results: For those wanting permanent results and significant changes made to the appearance of the nose, a surgical rhinoplasty might be a better treatment choice.
Are there any serious risks or side effects from a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure?
Side effects or complications may occur from having any cosmetic procedure with injectable fillers. However, vascular occlusion where the filler blocks a blood vessel, is a rare but serious risk with nose fillers. It can cut off blood supply, potentially leading to tissue death. Signs of vascular occlusion in the nose include:
Skin whitening immediately after injection.
Severe pain beyond typical post-injection discomfort.
Skin turning a dusky or purplish colour.
Skin feeling unusually cold.
Choosing an experienced injector who understands facial anatomy is vital in the event a rare complication could possibly occur. If vascular occlusion is suspected or has occurred, the filler is instantly dissolved with hyaluronidase to restore blood flow to the area.
Does a non-surgical rhinoplasty treatment cause scars?
A non-surgical nose job using fillers doesn’t create visible scars. The treatment involves small injections, which can cause temporary redness and little marks where the skin has been broken. These marks typically fade quickly and don’t usually result in any form of permanent scarring.
When will I see the results after liquid rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty provides results that can be seen immediately after treatment. Whilst any minor swelling or bruising can temporarily obscure the final outcome, these minimal side effects usually resolve within two weeks. Depending on the individual, the results of nose filler typically last for 18-24 months.
How many non-surgical rhinoplasty treatments will I need?
Most patients achieve their desired results with one treatment. The filler used in non-surgical rhinoplasty is designed for use in the nose and naturally absorbs over time. Whilst the results usually last for 18-24 months, this absorption rate might vary, and patients can opt for periodic top-up treatments as needed.
What other non-surgical procedures use dermal filler?
At Cosmos Aesthetics Gold Coast, a nose filler treatment can be combined with other non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the same appointment. Facial rejuvenation using cosmetic injectables for beauty enhancement can include additional treatment options such as anti wrinkle injections, lip filler, and chin filler.
