The Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty arrives at Aurora
How do you spend your lunchtimes? A quick bit of shopping, grabbing a sandwich, maybe running an errand to the bank? We’re guessing you’ve probably never had a nose job. Well now you can do just that – as the non-surgical rhinoplasty touches down at our clinics…
Traditionally, if you were unhappy with the shape of your nose – maybe a bump on the bridge or a wonky tip – the only way to do something about it was to have surgery.
And it seems there’s no shortage of us wanting to change our noses. Rhinoplasty is a consistently popular procedure in the UK, with 3,690 people having surgical nose reshaping last year.
But if you don’t fancy the expense or the invasiveness of surgery, and you’re looking for a fairly subtle change to your nose, there’s a new kid in town.
The non-surgical rhinoplasty is a quick, non-invasive way to finesse the shape of your nose – and if you want to, it really can be done in your lunch break – hence its nickname, ‘the lunchtime nose job’.
But what’s involved in a non-surgical rhinoplasty – and could it be right for you? Read on for a quick guide to our newest treatment.
Who is it suitable for?
The non-surgical nose job is aimed at those looking for an improvement, rather than a dramatic change.
Though it’s highly effective on the right patient, there are limits to what it can achieve. It’s best for people who have a slightly uneven profile, i.e. with a small bump or irregular tip. Anything more complex like a deviated septum or large hump will usually need surgery.
The treatment can also be useful for those who are thinking about rhinoplasty, but aren’t ready to commit to surgery just yet. It’ll give you a good idea of the results you can expect from surgery, which can be a very useful aid in your decision-making process.
How does it work?
Treatment is individually tailored to each patient, and uses a combination of Botulinum toxin injections and hyaluronic acid-based fillers (exactly the same kind used in facial filler treatments).
Botox is usually used in the tip, where it can be used to correct excessive drooping when you smile. Fillers are used to build up areas on the bridge, either side of a bump, to give you a straighter profile. They can also be used to fill out depressions in the tip cartilage.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment is super-quick, usually taking only around 15 minutes from start to finish. So when we say lunchtime nose job, we really mean it!
Is there any down time?
As with any injectable treatment, you may experience a bit of swelling immediately afterwards. This can last for a couple of days or so, and can be treated at home with a cold compress. Otherwise, you’re fine to return to normal activities.
How much does non-surgical rhinoplasty cost?
Treatment costs £500 in total – roughly ten times cheaper than the average surgical rhinoplasty.
How long do the results last?
As the procedure is carried out mainly with dermal fillers, you can expect your results to last a similar length of time – around 18 months to two years.
