Could a Non-Surgical Nose Job Really Work?

With the increased use of injectables through out the face, injectables as known as dermal fillers have come to play a role in managing small deformities of the nose.  Sometimes people refer to these derma filler injections to the nose as a non-surgical nose job.  In reality, it is not really a nose job, but rather the camouflaging of a deformity that can be corrected without the need of surgery.

A few examples of deformities that would possibly fall under this category would be:

1. A small dent on the side of the nose

2. A skin deformity related to scar and/or trauma

3.  A small nasal hump on a nose in which an experienced cosmetic or plastic surgeon could add dermal filler above and below the hump, adding volume to create the illusion of a straight nasal dorsum or straight nasal bridge.

While I do find patients who fall in this category in our consultations for nasal surgery in both Bloomington/Normal and Champaign/Urbana, it is the minority of the noses that can be corrected through injectables.  Most of the patients seeking a nasal change do require changes about nasal cartilages and/or bones that would necessitate surgery as the treatment of choice.

When injectables can be used, one of two substances can usually be utilized.

1. Hyaluronic Acid– [Voluma, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lift, Juvaderm, Perlane, etc.,)

2. Hydroxy Appetite (such as Radiesse)

If you are thinking about undergoing nasal surgery and/or changes to your nose, your surgeon can easily point to the areas that can be corrected with either injectables and/or surgery and should be able to show you pictures of corrections that he has performed.  We have an extensive showcase of before and after photos of multiple types nasal deformities to demonstrate the corrective surgeries we have performed in our practice.  Our patients find this helps in a significant way when they are trying to address his own personal issues.
