You don’t like your nose and have been thinking about rhinoplasty but are too scared to go under the knife? Have a feeling everyone is always looking at your nose which affects your self-confidence?
We are pleased to inform you hyaluronic acid filler is the answer to all your problems.
Until recently, the only option for people who wanted to reshape their nose was a surgical rhinoplasty which requires general anaesthetic and the patient to stay in the hospital for few days. Also, side effects of severe bruising and swelling keep patients indoors for few days because no one wants people pointing finger at them on the street.
While surgical rhinoplasty still remains the best option for major size and shape nose changes, non-surgical rhinoplasty or non-surgical nose job is better for those who need moderate and minor nose reshaping.
Nose occupies the centre of the face, so any mild asymmetry can be quite striking. A non-surgical nose job is used to correct a wide range of nose defects by reshaping and resizing it.

Many people who had surgical rhinoplasty but are still unhappy with the results decide to have a non-surgical nose job as well. Small amounts of filler are used to treat nose deformities and fine-tune postsurgical noses.
- No general anaesthesia
- Dermal fillers are temporary
- Results are visible immediately
- No downtime after the procedure
- Quick procedure
In contrast to surgical rhinoplasty, non-surgical nose job (using dermal filler) has minimal or no downtown with immediate results.
Prior to the treatment, you will have a consultation with Dr Matic during which you will discuss your expectations and go through all the aspects of the procedure.
The non-surgical nose job procedure is quick and simple and lasts 10-15 minutes. Even though the fillers we use for non-surgical nose job contain a built-in anaesthetic which helps to minimise pain, we routinely apply additional anaesthetic cream as well. The thick hyaluronic acid filler is then injected with a tiny needle or a blunt cannula. You will be awake during the procedure. After the procedure, you will be free to continue with your daily routine.
Non-surgical nose job will not affect your breathing because the filler is placed superficially onto the bone under the skin.
There is no need for supportive tape or a splint because the bone and cartilage have not been altered.
The most common side effects that can happen are nose swelling, tenderness, bruising and redness which normally resolve within few days.
Considering we do not do any incisions and only use a needle or a cannula, there will be no scars.
Results typically last about 12 months but it is important to highlight that with repeated treatments the results last even longer.
Post-treatment advice for individuals who had non-surgical nose job is the same as it is for all dermal fillers procedures. It is also important to avoid wearing sunglasses for 2 weeks because it can press on the filler and alter its position.
