Everything you need to know about getting a non-surgical nose job

Did you know that there is a way to fix your nose tip without surgery? 

It’s common for people to imagine a nose job as a painful procedure that takes weeks to recover from. But there is a non-invasive procedure that is known as a “liquid nose job” (non-surgical rhinoplasty).


In response to the growing demand for noninvasive aesthetic procedures, “liquid rhinoplasty” is becoming more popular as a nonsurgical alternative to the standard nose operation. Because of its low cost, simplicity, and quick recovery time, nonsurgical rhinoplasty, is gaining popularity.

What is a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty, AKA a Liquid Rhinoplasty Using Dermal Fillers?

Known as a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, a non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty involves the injection of dermal fillers into the nose to reshape it. 

Who is this procedure for?

This procedure is for people seeking a slight (but noticeable) change in their nose who may find non-surgical nose jobs appealing. The minimally invasive approach using dermal fillers doesn’t need anesthesia or downtime. Non-surgical rhinoplasty allows you to alter your nose without general anesthesia. 

By injecting fillers in different places on your nose,  a more refined or straight profile can be created. It can also stretch out the tip of the nose, and even out any imperfections.

Can I change a bulbous nose tip without rhinoplasty surgery?

Unfortunately, you can’t change a bulbous nose tip without surgery. The bulbous nasal tip cartilage must be reduced surgically through rhinoplasty. Surgical rhinoplasty is done through suture techniques and conservative cartilage removal.

What is a nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure like?

In comparison to surgical rhinoplasty, liquid rhinoplasty is a very straightforward procedure.

Your doctor will have you lie down with your face tilted up after a consultation in which you discuss your desired results. A topical anesthetic may be administered to your nose and the surrounding region to prevent pain from the needle.

Your doctor will inject the filler into the region surrounding your nose and maybe the bridge of your nose once the anesthesia has taken effect. While this is being done, you may feel a tiny pinching or pressure.

The entire operation might take anything from 15 minutes to 45 minutes.

Is a non-surgical nose job permanent?

No, a non-surgical nose job is not permanent. When it comes to the life of a filler on your body, there are a lot of variables that come with it, and one of those is your metabolism. Yet, in general, a filler will last around 12 months.

Can I get a liquid nose job if I’ve previously had a surgical rhinoplasty? 

The answer varies from patient to patient.

What is the price difference between a rhinoplasty and a nonsurgical nose job?

Compared to traditional rhinoplasty, nonsurgical rhinoplasty is considerably less expensive. The cost of a traditional rhinoplasty is $5,000 USD vs 350-550 per syringe for a nonsurgical nose job at VIDA Wellness and Beauty. 

Will my nose be the same with a nonsurgical nose job vs a rhinoplasty?

No. Although fillers can reshape and give your nose a whole new look, they add volume to the nose in order to reshape it. A rhinoplasty removes cartilage and makes the nose smaller. A liquid nose job also cannot correct breathing problems.

What should I expect from recovery?

One of the most exciting aspects of a non-surgical nose job is that there is almost no recovery time. Surgeons just use local anesthetic, and no sutures or incisions are used. 

The sole indication of a non-surgical nose job is that a few individuals report minor soreness for a few days after the filler is injected. In comparison to the recovery process for a rhinoplasty which takes weeks of swelling and bruising.

Patients frequently want to get their non-surgical nose job on a Thursday or Friday so that they may return to work on Monday.
