Most of us have something that we’d like to change about our face and/or body, and that thing is usually very personal to each individual. As the nose is often seen as a prominent facial feature, many people feel the need to alter its appearance in some way. Some people would like to change the shape of their nose while others prefer to change its size.
If you’re interested in changing the shape and/or size of your nose but you’re afraid to undergo drastic surgery or rhinoplasty, there is another solution available. This solution is non-surgical and may be referred to as ‘nasal shaping’ or ‘nose reshaping‘.
But how do nose jobs work without surgery you might be asking? Read on, as we’re about to tell you all you need to know.
Nasal shaping/nose reshaping is a term used to describe corrective surgery or reshaping of the nose. It differs from nose jobs and rhinoplasty in the sense that no surgery is needed. In contrast to surgery, it is a simple procedure which includes the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can alter the shape to subtly straighten and improve the look of the nose. They work by making your nose look more filled out, smoother and better proportioned. For those that have a dip in the nose or a prominent bridge, a dermal filler can make it look straighter and more even. However, a non-surgical nose job is only suited to those that want to slightly change the appearance of their nose as they won’t work for more drastic changes.
There are two great advanategs of getting dermal fillers to reshape you nose:
Patients are always happy when they find out that the entire treatment can be successfully completed in under 30 minutes (yes, 30 minutes!). Dermal filler treatments can be administered quickly and easily, and the outcome is instantaneously gratifying.
Additionally, you’ll be able to get back to your normal life straight away after a nasal shaping. Some patients can experience swelling for about 2 days to 10 days, but it’s only minimal and won’t get in the way of your regular routine.
