The Injectable Nose Job
What if you could have the nose of your dreams but without the invasive surgery and post-op downtime? It’s possible with a popular procedure known as the Injectable Nose Job, or 15-Minute Nose Job, which uses injectables and dermal fillers to get rid of unsightly nasal humps, bumps, drooping tips, and other minor flaws.
Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, an invasive surgical procedure, the injectable nose job involves the use of filler products like Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse. These products are used to change the appearance of the nose without the need for surgery.
The materials are injected into the nose in order to smooth out minor cosmetic flaws while rebuilding the nose and improving the overall appearance of the nose.
The effects are immediate. Minor cosmetic flaws such as a drooping tip, small depression, nasal hump or bump seem to vanish. The results are said to last for up to a year before they have to be repeated to maintain optimal results. The injectable nose job begins with the application of a topical numbing cream so that the patient experiences no pain during the procedure.
The benefits of the non-surgical nose job are that they involve less pain and there is no lengthy recovery period. The cost is also less compared with traditional Rhinoplasty. Moreover, the non-surgical treatments can be done in combination with nasal surgery so as to augment the results. Other benefits include the overall lack of bruising and swelling around injection sites and decreased risk of scarring associated with nasal surgery.
Thousands of patients each year choose to have an injectable nose job because they are on a limited budget or don’t require the full effect of nasal surgery. Nevertheless, the procedure is not for everyone. For larger cosmetic nose problems, the so-called 15-minute nose job is not a solution; surgical rhinoplasty is your best long-term solution. Furthermore, injectables cannot be used for reduction rhinoplasty but rather for augmentation rhinoplasty only, though nasal humps which may be reduced with nasal surgery can be disguised and made less obvious by filling in surrounding areas with injectables. Injectables can also pose a risk for future nasal surgery.
If a minor nasal hump, indent or other imperfection has been bothering you, the injectable nose job is but one of many non-invasive options with short-term results. For more dramatic, long-term results, consider nasal surgery with the knowledge, help and guidance of a qualified plastic surgeon.
