The non-surgical rhinoplasty has overtaken surgery to become the go-to option for reshaping your nose. While it cannot truly replicate the full scope of a surgical rhinoplasty, it has a large number of applications.
Imperfections a non-surgical rhinoplasty can address
- Best suited for: Bumps on the bridge (dorsal hump) or tip (lobule hump) that are small to moderate in size.
- How it works: Placing fillers above and below the bump to camouflage it.
- Limitations: Cannot fully address large bumps, but it can improve them.
Indentation or hollow areas
- Best suited for: Slight depressions on the bridge, tip, or sides of the nose.
- How it works: Fillers volumise hollow areas.
- Limitations: Deep depressions can be partially improved.
Asymmetries or deviations
- Best suited for: Slight asymmetry in the direction of the nose.
- How it works: Placing filler on the ‘weak side’ helps to centralise the appearance.
- Limitations: Can only treat mild asymmetry.
Refining tip definition
- Best suited for: Enhancement of tip projection or definition.
- How it works: Fillers add central projection to the nose tip.
- Limitations: Dramatic tip changes or correction of drooping tips are not achievable.
General limitations of the non-surgical rhinoplasty
- Imperfections requiring surgery: Fillers cannot address a wide nose, or completely improve a large bump.
- Skin tightness: The tightness of your skin will determine how much of a sustained correction can be achieved.
- Previous nose job surgery: There are more risks and limitations when using the non-surgical rhinoplasty to improve surgical results.
- Individual suitability is crucial. Consult an experienced doctor with expertise in facial fillers and nose anatomy.
- Be realistic about your expectations and clearly communicate your desired outcome.
- Respect the limitations of the non-surgical rhinoplasty.
- Prioritise safety and seek treatment from experienced professionals to reduce risks.
