A non surgical nose job is a cosmetic procedure that uses dermal fillers to change the shape of the nose. The advantage of injectable rhinoplasty is there's considerably less downtime and no need for invasive surgery or general anaesthetic.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty or a non-surgical nose job, is a simple procedure that uses dermal filler to achieve a more desirable nose shape. Non-surgical nose surgery can dramatically improve a patient’s appearance. It can camouflage bumps or indentations and create a more symmetrical and appealing profile.
Many patients are pleasantly surprised to learn that fixing abnormalities in the shape of the nose can make it appear smaller, when in fact the size has not changed. With a non-surgical nose job, injectable fillers can be used to correct a crooked nose by reshaping the nasal bridge and nasal tip.

Flat bridge correction: Nose fillers can be used to create a subtle increase in height
Symmetry correction: A deviated or crooked nose, and even the tip of the nose, can be made to look more even
Camouflage: A bump or hook on the bridge of the nose can be hidden with hyaluronic acid dermal filler
Create balance: The size of the nose can be made more symmetrical in comparison with other facial features
Droopy nose tip correction: A droopy-looking nose tip can be lifted with dermal filler
Rounded nose tip refinement: A round nose tip can be defined with filler by creating a more desirable shape
Shape refinement: Dermal filler can hide minor imperfections following surgical rhinoplasty

Dermal fillers are used to reshape the nose without surgery
To improve the appearance of the nose, small amounts of dermal filler are injected into the deep layer of the skin (the perichondrium or the periosteum layers), in the necessary areas. A topical numbing cream will be applied to the nose to create a comfortable treatment for the patient. The simple procedure will only take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete, and results are instantaneous.
Dermal fillers will create a less permanent result than surgical nose surgery, however, results are long-lasting as they will remain noticeable for one to two years after treatment. The procedure demands very little recovery time and is associated with less risks and complications than a surgical rhinoplasty.

Good candidates for injectable rhinoplasty
Suitable candidates for nose job fillers are patients who want to improve the shape of their nose and address aesthetic concerns such as symmetry, bumps, and a droopy tip. The quick, simple, and painless procedure can produce effective results for patients whose aesthetic concerns have been weighing on their confidence and self-esteem, without the need for surgery. Results are long-lasting yet temporary, so the procedure can be far less intimidating to undergo than a surgical rhinoplasty that creates permanent changes.
The non surgical nose reshaping procedure can also achieve aesthetic improvements for patients who have undergone a surgical rhinoplasty procedure in the past and would like to make further adjustments.
Sometimes, other options may be better for some patients, due to health concerns such as allergies to certain medications or having a nose structure that may not particularly benefit from dermal fillers, such as a very high dorsal hump. Suitability will depend on your individual features, goals, and expectations, and discussing your desired results with a nurse or doctor can help you to know whether a non-surgical nose job with dermal fillers is the most appropriate choice for you.
Ultimately, booking a consultation with one of our highly experienced doctors or nurses at Cosmos Aesthetics Sydney is the best way to determine your eligibility for a cosmetic nose reshaping procedure.
Non-surgical nose job recovery
Often referred to as a produce with no downtime, recovery from injectable rhinoplasty is minimal and patients can continue their daily routine after the procedure, unlike surgical nose reshaping operations.
Minor swelling or bruising may be experienced, but post-procedure symptoms like these will subside quite fast. To care for your new nose after treatment, our team will provide you with detailed recovery instructions that you can follow. Recovery instructions or tips might be to:
Manage swelling and bruising with cold compress such as an ice pack, or with topical creams
Avoid wearing eyeglasses for a couple of days, if possible, so that no pressure is applied to the nose area
Avoid wearing makeup or applying skincare products for 24 hours after the procedure
Wait two days to resume any strenuous exercise so that bruising can disappear faster
Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight and heat, including saunas, for about one week
Make sure not to apply too much pressure on the nose area
Make sure that you follow any specific post-procedure care instructions that one of our Sydney nurses or doctors has given you, as it can help you to ensure that you maintain optimal results and can continue to enjoy your improved nose shape.
Procedure risks and complications
All treatments are associated with some risks and possible side effects. Therefore, it is important to select an experienced clinic to undergo your procedure. Cosmos Aesthetics Sydney is fit with a highly experienced and trained team of doctors and nurses that specialise in injectable procedures and want to make sure that you achieve the best results possible.
You may experience some swelling, bruising or a sensation of tenderness, but this should completely subside within about three days after treatment. Very rarely, and if incorrectly performed, injectable rhinoplasty can affect the blood vessels in the nose, leading to more severe side effects.
You should always choose a clinic with great nurses, doctors and practitioners who are backed with years of experience and knowledge, for any dermal filler procedure. Despite the simple and fast nature of the non-surgical nose job, the procedure requires sound knowledge of the structures in the nose and needs to be performed by a qualified and extensively-experienced nurse or doctor to minimise risks and the chance of complications occurring.
When is it better to have a non-surgical nose job as opposed to a traditional surgical nose job?
Using dermal fillers to improve nose shape can be a better solution for those who have minor or less severe aesthetic concerns, as the procedure is very precise, using only small amounts of filler at a time in the necessary areas. Patients who only need minor improvements can avoid undergoing a surgical nose job, and thus avoid the procedure time, recovery time, and costs that are associated with surgery.
Those who are hesitant to undergo a surgical nose job due to the permanent changes that it causes can also be better suited to a non-surgical nose job, as results are less permanent.
What are the positives of the nose reshaping procedure?
Injectable rhinoplasty, or a non-surgical nose job, can improve aesthetic concerns and bring balance to a patient’s face, without the need for surgery. Dermal fillers can effectively conceal bumps or indentations in the nose, create a more symmetrical appearance, and can even make the nose look smaller even though the nose has not been reduced in size.
The procedure is quick, simple, and pain-free, allowing patients to resume their regular daily routine straight after their treatment due to the minimal downtime. Nose job fillers are associated with less costs, procedure time, recovery time, risks, and side effects than surgical nose jobs, and can be the perfect solution for patients who are hesitant to undergo a permanent surgical change.
While results aren’t permanent, they are long-lasting, and fillers can remain for one to two years after the procedure. Those who love their new nose can maintain their results in the long term with additional or ‘top-up’ procedures when needed or can return to their natural nose gradually if preferred.
Will I need more than one injectable rhinoplasty procedure?
Dermal fillers gradually dissolve over time, so you may need to undergo another non-surgical nose job procedure after 18 months to two years in order to maintain your results in the long term. The frequency of the need to have another treatment will vary from patient to patient as it will depend on how fast the dermal filler dissolves. Filler might last for longer in some patients than others.
Does non-surgical rhinoplasty leave scars?
Scars are very rare as dermal filler procedures simply require small injections, and our doctors and nurses will always aim to produce scar-free results with any treatment. If scars occur, they would be on the inside of the nostril, which is hidden.
When are results noticeable?
Results of a non-surgical nose job using dermal fillers are instant. However, if any minor swelling or bruising has become noticeable, it may take up to ten days or a few weeks for final results to show, as these small symptoms will need to subside.
