In a matter of minutes, Dr. Damico can give you a new nose with the use of injectable fillers instead of invasive surgery.
Rhinoplasty, or altering your nose, is one of the most-sought after treatments in the cosmetic medicine world. Yet another option, a non-surgical nose job, also offers minor tweaks to improve the appearance of your nose with injectable fillers.
While the thought of getting a new nose in under 15 minutes might sound appealing, whether you’re a good candidate for quickie nose job really depends on your nose’s structure and history, and your doctor’s analysis.
You may be wondering which fillers are typically used in a non-surgical nose job. A non-surgical nose job, or liquid rhinoplasty, uses hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm to almost instantly transform your nose. However, Dr. Damico examine’s everyones unique anatomy and may decide that a filler such as Voluma would be a better choice. It all depends on you!
You are probably also interested in knowing how long non-surgical nose job results last! “The benefit of a non-surgical rhinoplasty is that it is relatively quick and can be done in a treatment room,” said Dr. Barry M. Weintraub, a New York plastic surgeon. “The drawback is that the result is temporary, and only a few nasal configurations can be appropriately treated with this approach.” There might be some slight bruising after a non-surgical nose job, but typically there is little to no downtime. Results last between nine months and two years and are reversible. If you don’t like what you see after a non-surgical nose job, your doctor can use a dissolving substance called hyaluronidase that’ll get you back to your pre-procedure nose within 48 hours. For many, that’s a distinct advantage compared to surgery’s permanent changes.

Sometimes, fillers just won’t be able to give you the results you want. If that’s the case, Dr. Damico would recommend rhinoplasty. If Dr. Damico believes you are not a candidate for a liquid nose job, he will be happy to suggest a plastic surgeon in the Fort Worth, Texas area who will help you achieve the look you want! Expect to spend around $7,475 on a surgical rhinoplasty. (Surgical rhinoplasties are not provided by Dr. Damico at Skin Care Fort Worth.)
It’s important to maintain realistic expectations. Not every nose will work for every face. The celebrity nose you admire might not be the right choice, or even possible for you. Plastic surgeon Dr. Weintraub says that a personalized approach is essential: “It is extremely important to take into account a patient’s specific facial structure — width of cheekbones, length of face, the delicacy of features — and to produce a nose that is harmonious and natural-looking, so the patient appears to not have had any surgery, but to simply be a product of good genetics.” Dr. Damico agrees with taking a full-face approach to achieve aesthetic harmony.
The right nose for you should be all about you!
The procedure itself takes 10 or 15 minutes and there’s minimal recovery time. Patients love that they can immediately see the results.
Not that non-surgical nose jobs don’t come with some risk. “Make sure your doctor is an experienced injector and knows the nasal anatomy,” says Washington, DC, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Somenek. This will help minimize potential compression of the nose’s delicate blood vessels. Vascular compromise leading to skin necrosis is “the dreaded risk of non-surgical rhinoplasty,” says New York facial plastic surgeon Dr. Dara Liotta. “Studies have shown a rate of vascular compromise after filler injection of approximately 0.05%,” she says.

Who are good candidates for a non-surgical nose job? Doctors agree that non-surgical nose jobs work best to correct minor imperfections. “Adding filler to the tip of the nose can improve tip symmetry, tip projection, and tip shape with respect to the bridge of the nose. Filler can also be used in the nostril rims to bring them down or in the columella to help rotate the nose tip up.” Says Dr. Remus Repta.
“In the right candidate, a liquid rhinoplasty can even out irregularities along the bridge of the nose, make the nose appear straighter, raise the nasal bridge, or camouflage a dorsal hump on the profile view,” says Dr. Liotta. “Although you are technically adding volume with filler, the end result is often a nose that appears smaller.”
For those looking to correct any nasal obstruction or chronic breathing issues, non-surgical nose jobs won’t help with those.
Who’s getting non-surgical nose jobs? As for who’s doing the research, RealSelf data shows 74 percent of interest came from users aged 18 to 34. The lower price tag of a non-surgical nose job may make it more appealing to a younger crowd who’s not positive surgery is the right choice.
“For as long as I can remember, I was unhappy with my nose,” writes one young woman in a RealSelf review. “Being only 19, I wasn’t ready for a permanent change.” Then she learned about non-surgical nose jobs. “I was handed a mirror and in no less than five minutes, I was given a new nose,” she says. “It turned out exactly how I wanted and I couldn’t be happier with it.”
