A Non-surgical Nose Job (Tokyo, Japan)


This is how you get tall nose in 5 minutes.

Nose reshaping has been a trend for quite a long time now since people who are unhappy about their nose appearance can head forward to the clinic and get the job done timely. A nose job can be both ways, either to get rid of the bump or make it look taller. While the typical rhinoplasty surgery can simply fix it, a liquid nose job makes it even easier nowadays.

A liquid nose job, or in other words: nose injection is known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty. No surgery needed to be done, just injecting the liquid filler is sufficient enough to reshape the nose with hands.

What is it?

A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure which involves injecting fillers into the nose to alter its shape, the nostrils or the bridge height. The most common fillers used in the procedure is hyaluronic acid fillers (HA filler). The whole procedure takes just 5 minutes to complete unless a numbing cream is pre-applied. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes for the numbing cream to function prior to the treatment.

Before and After, any painful experience?

From the scale where we compare nose injection with BOTOX, cheek injection and lip injection, BOTOX is known to have the least painful experience whereas cheek injection falls at the most painful experience among all. Lip injection falls in the middle and nose injection surprisingly lands near to BOTOX.

Nose injection, however, can cause some people to feel a slight discomfort after the treatment along with possible bruising and most likely swelling.

How long does nose injection last?

Being a non-surgical procedure, unlike a surgical rhinoplasty, it somehow indicates itself as a temporary result which last only as long as the fillers do between 6 to 12 months. Some people have it last for 10 to 12 months, depending on the conditions.

Need a redo?

As mentioned the nose injection does not last permanently, it can be considered as a benefit where a redo is completely possible. For the ones who are really not happy with the result anymore and wish to redo it, the process can be removed by injecting enzyme hyaluronidase that dissolves the HA fillers. This breaks down the fillers that is hyaluronic acid. Unfortunately if the fillers are not hyaluronic-acid based, the process cannot be done the same way.

Another tip of nose injection is that people actually make a use of this to try out if having a straighter nose would suit them before going for an actual rhinoplasty surgery. Once again, the procedure can be undone, as long as the fillers used are truly hyaluronic acid-based.
