What is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
As a main feature of your face, your nose can have a big impact on your confidence and self-esteem. Many individuals who are interested in rhinoplasty are hesitant to get plastic surgery because they would rather not pay the high cost and experience the extended downtime and recuperation that this surgical procedure requires. At Wasserman Ulitsky Dermatology, we offer non-surgical nose jobs in and around Venice, FL. If you’re considering a non-surgical nose job, or if you’re just curious about the procedure, we think you’ll find this article informative!
How It’s Different from a Traditional Nose Job
A non-surgical nose job is far different from a surgical nose job as there is no general anesthesia used nor any cutting involved. Instead, a safe and effective injectable filler is used to alter the appearance of the nose for improved aesthetics. A non-surgical nose job is a quick and easy alternative for anyone who wants to improve certain features of their nose without having to undergo surgery. Also called non-surgical rhinoplasty, this procedure can address the following issues:
- Noses with droopy tips
- Noses with a "bump"
- Asymmetrical noses
- Crooked noses
- Too-broad or too-narrow noses
How the Procedure is Done
When you visit us for a non-surgical nose job, Dr. Wasserman or Dr. Ulitsky will begin the procedure by numbing the area to be treated with a special topical cream. Then, your doctor will inject dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Sculptra, into the predetermined target areas to help you achieve the aesthetic you want. Whether you want a smoother, bump-free nose, a more lifted nose tip, or just a straighter nose overall, Dr. Wasserman and Dr. Ulitsky are committed to helping you look your very best.
All in all, a non-surgical nose job only takes about 30 minutes to complete. This is pretty quick compared to a traditional nose job, which can take anywhere from an hour up to 4 hours to complete. After the non-surgical nose job procedure is complete, your nose will appear smaller and more attractive. Because you don’t have to worry about any downtime, you can leave our office and go about the rest of your day. You can expect these results to last for about a year, at which time you can have the procedure done again if you wish.
As with any cosmetic procedure, you may experience some redness, tenderness, and swelling. These symptoms tend to be more common when treating the tip of your nose. That being said, one major advantage of a non-surgical nose job is that you don’t have to worry about any severe pain after the procedure is complete.
