An injectable rhinoplasty is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses dermal fillers to enhance and improve the shape of the nose. The advantage of this type of injectable nose job is that instant results can be achieved with no downtime, general anaesthetic or need for invasive surgery.
Non-surgical nose job is a simple and effective procedure that uses dermal filler to achieve a more desirable nose shape. Non-surgical nose augmentation with dermal filler can dramatically improve a patient’s profile, by camouflaging bumps or indentations to create a more symmetrical and overall appealing appearance.
Many patients are pleasantly surprised to notice that correcting imperfections in the shape of the nose, such as the hump, can make it appear smaller, when the size of the nose has not actually been changed. With a non-surgical nose job, injectable fillers can be used to correct a crooked nasal bridge, droopy nasal tip, and many other aesthetic concerns. When performed by an experienced cosmetic physician or nurse injector, the procedure takes less than an hour, and can produce life-changing results.

An improved nose shape without the need for surgery
The appearance of the nose can be improved by using small amounts of dermal filler to achieve balance, symmetry, or to camouflage bumps. While a topical numbing cream works to eliminate pain, dermal filler is precisely injected into the deeper layer of the skin in the nose (the perichondrium or the periosteum layers). The filler is then shaped to create the desired structure. Procedure time is short, only taking about 20 to 30 minutes, and patients will be able to walk out of the clinic and resume their daily activities.
Results are instant and can last for 18 months to 24 months, only needing additional procedures to maintain results once the filler has begun to naturally dissolve. The downtime for the procedure is minimal, as well as the associated risks and side effects. The injectable nose job treatment can produce optimal results with a far less time-consuming and physically taxing procedure than traditional surgical nose jobs.
Non-surgical nose job costs in Melbourne
Non-surgical rhinoplasty treatment prices at Cosmos Clinic Melbourne will vary, as the procedure costs will depend on your individual needs, goals, and expectations. Costs typically vary due to the amount of hyaluronic acid dermal filler that will be used during your individual treatment, and the amount of filler will be based on your procedure goals. It is important to note that if patients wish to maintain results in the long term, additional ‘top-up’ procedures will be needed. Usually, dermal filler will dissolve at around one to two years after treatment, but this will depend on the individual and how quickly the body metabolises the filler.
Cost starts from $700

Suitable candidates for a non surgical rhinoplasty procedure
Good candidates for an injectable rhinoplasty treatment are those who wish to improve the shape of their nose and address unwanted aesthetic factors such as asymmetry, bumps, or a droopy nose tip. The simple, fast, and pain-free procedure can create satisfying results for patients and can instantly increase confidence levels, without needing to undergo a surgical procedure. Results can last for as long as one to two years, but are less permanent than surgical rhinoplasty, which can be suitable for patients who are hesitant to undergo a permanent surgical change.
Suitable candidates may also be patients who have previously had a surgical nose job and want to make further tweaks or improvements with dermal filler.
While the procedure is suitable for most patients, some patients may be better suited to other treatments to achieve desired results. This could be due to health concerns such as allergies to certain medications, affecting eligibility for the procedure, or having a nose structure that alternative treatments would be able to improve upon more efficiently, such as a nose with a very high dorsal hump.
Suitability for a Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping procedure will depend on the patient’s personal goals, features, and expectations for treatment. Therefore, a consultation with one of our experienced nurses or doctors at Cosmos Clinic Melbourne would be the easiest way to determine if this procedure is the right option for you.
Injectable rhinoplasty recovery
Recovering from a non-surgical nose job is quite simple as the downtime is minimal to non-existent. You might notice some minor swelling or bruising, but this should subside quite quickly, and you will be able to return to your usual daily actives straight after treatment.
You will be given detailed recovery instructions to care for your new nose after your procedure. Some of these recovery instructions or tips may be to:
Reduce swelling or bruising by applying cold compress, such as an ice pack, to the treated area
Manage swelling or bruising by applying topical creams
Wait 24 hours after the procedure to resume wearing makeup or using skincare products
If you can, avoid wearing eyeglasses for about 48 hours, to avoid applying pressure to the nose
Avoid strenuous exercise for 48 hours to help any bruising subside quicker
Avoid excessive heat or exposure to the sun for about one week
Try not to press down on or apply pressure to the nose area
Nose fillers risks and complications
No procedure is without risks or the chance of side effects, so it is important to choose an experienced clinic for your non-surgical nose job procedure to maximise your chance of attaining the best results possible. Cosmos Clinic Melbourne provides patients with highly trained and extensively experienced nurses and doctors, specialising in injectable treatments.
Some patients may experience minor swelling, bruising, or tenderness, but these symptoms should only be noticeable for a few days after the procedure. On very rare occasions, and if performed by a non-experienced practitioner, dermal fillers can affect the blood vessels in the nose, which can lead to further complications. This is why, despite the fast and simple nature of the injectable rhinoplasty procedure, it is essential that a knowledgeable nurse or doctor performs the treatment as they understand the structures of the nose and know how to reduce the chance of complications occurring.
When is a non-surgical nose job a better option than a traditional surgical rhinoplasty procedure?
A nose reshaping procedure may be a more suitable choice for patients who have less prominent aesthetic concerns, that don’t need to be addressed with surgery to be improved upon. Thanks to the precise nature of the procedure, as it uses only small amounts of dermal filler at a time, minor concerns can be addressed in detail.
Patients who wish to avoid the procedure time, recovery time, costs, and risks that are involved with surgical rhinoplasty can opt for an injectable nose reshaping procedure that can create noticeable improvements in minutes. Those who are hesitant to undergo a permanent change may also prefer to undergo a non-surgical nose job, as although results are long-lasting, they are not permanent, unlike surgical changes. While results are more temporary than results that are produced by surgery, they are still quite long-lasting, as results can remain for one to two years.
What are the benefits of injectable rhinoplasty with dermal fillers?
A non-surgical nose job using dermal fillers can balance the aesthetic appearance of a patient’s face, and effectively hide bumps or indentations on the nose. Although the procedure involves adding dermal filler to the nose, it can in fact make the nose appear smaller, without the need for surgical change. Advantages of the procedure include that it is a fast, simple, and painless treatment, and it enables patients to continue with their daily activities straight after treatment. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, minimal downtime and less costs are associated with the procedure. Results are long-lasting as dermal fillers can remain for up to two years, however, they aren’t permanent, which is an advantage for those who are hesitant to undergo a permanent surgical procedure.
Results can be maintained in the long term by undergoing another treatment once dermal fillers have dissolved, or they can be easily removed by letting the filler gradually disappear over time, allowing you return to your natural nose if you prefer.
Will I need multiple injectable rhinoplasty treatments?
To maintain your results, you will need another non-surgical nose job procedure after about 18 months to two years, as the dermal fillers gradually dissolve. How soon you will need another treatments to refresh your results will depend on how quickly the fillers dissolve, and this will vary from person to person.
Will an injectable rhinoplasty procedure leave scars?
Dermal filler procedures only require small injections with small amounts of filler at a time, so scarring is very rare. On the rare chance that scarring occurs, it would be somewhere that is concealed, such as on the inside of the nostril. Our nurses and doctors will always strive to create scar-free results by utilising effective techniques.
When will I see the results of my procedure?
Thanks to the fast and simple procedure that can be performed using dermal fillers, results are instant. However, final results may become noticeable about ten days or a few weeks after treatment, if any swelling or bruising needs to subside.
