The focal points of the face could be defined as the eyes, mouth and nose. For many people the shape of their nose can impair their confidence level immensely. Until recently, the only solution for anyone looking for a nose reshaping was a surgical rhinoplasty. While surgical nose job remains the solution for major size and shape changes, the majority of the issues faced by individuals are small concerns easily rectified with dermal fillers, soft gel like substance, to camouflage the issues. In many cases the results are far better and accurate than a surgical nose job with a higher level of patient satisfaction achieved.

Dermal fillers are temporary but long lasting. The patient and the doctor could opt for a new approach because of the temporary nature of the fillers.
A typical session of non-surgical nose job london procedure is preceded by a consultation with our cosmetic doctor. This is an essential step where the doctor examines the patient and tries to understand their expectations about the outcome of the procedure. The consultation may include taking pictures from various angles and using them in the discussion of the treatment. Our cosmetic doctors can provide expectant results to a very accurate degree by examining the different parameters of the nasal anatomy & overlying skin.
The next step is the nose job london procedure itself. The average duration of the session is 15-30 minutes. The dermal filler is injected in various points. Fillers we use have built in local anaesthetic called lidocaine that makes the injections very comfortable. The client monitors the progress as they are provided a mirror and repeat photographs taken from different angles that aid both the physician and patient.
After the procedure of non-surgical nose job is complete, the patient is free to go without any stay in the clinic. If required a follow up treatment may be arranged.
Following a significant nose fracture a few years earlier our patient opted to not have a surgical rhinoplasty. Instead he opted for a non surgical procedure with fillers our clinic. This was an extremely complex nose to work on but the outcome speaks for itself.
The procedure and fillers used should not change how you breathe. As the injections are placed in the skin, the nasal breathing passages should not be affected and should not worsen breathing.
No supportive tape or splint is required afterwards as the bone and cartilage has not been altered.
We use a combination of very small needle and cannula (thin blunt tube) which reduces the risk of extensive bruising. Most clients are able to return to work with just a few needle marks and minor bruising that can be covered up.
Additionally, there will be mild swelling afterwards. In the nose this is not as evident as in other areas such as the lips and for most clients this is hardly noticeable. In some cases the swelling adds to the results and hence we recommend that final results are visible after around 2 weeks.
It is advisable to avoid wearing glasses or sunglasses afterwards if possible for up to 2 weeks. The bridge or the nose pads on glasses may press on the filler and alter its position. Additionally, there is a risk of glasses being ‘knocked’ and affecting the procedure results.
It is possible to start light exercise the following day. Contact sports, where there is a risk of your nose being knocked, should be avoided for up to 2 weeks.
Yes. As there is no general anaesthetic and most patients feel well immediately afterwards, it is possible to drive home.
Migration of the filler can occur with aggressive massaging or pressure on the nose. It is therefore advisable to avoid palpating the treatment area afterwards and to avoid any activities where there is a risk of the nose being inadvertently bumped.
As there are no incisions, just a needle is used, it is very rare to have any scars following a non surgical nose job.
Although not essential, we are happy to review each case to monitor progress. Additionally, we offer supportive care on the phone and via emails if patients are unable to visit for a review appointment.
Yes, most surgeons will advise to wait till the dermal filler in the nose reduces naturally before planning a rhinoplasty.
