Rhinoplasty is one of the most desired cosmetic procedures in the UK, but many people are frightened by the surgical procedure involved and the potential complications.

non-surgical rhinoplasty

At Malmin we offer a non-surgical nose reshaping procedure known as non-surgical rhinoplasty. It is a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgical rhinoplasty. It is sometimes referred to as the 15 minute nose job because the treatment involves only dermal filler injections to reshape and sculpt the nose.

what do dermal fillers do?

Dermal fillers can be used in several ways to straighten nasal curves or bumps, or to plump out areas or dents that could have been caused naturally or in an accident. A tip projection can also be carried out whereby filler is inserted into the tip of the nose, giving it a lifted appearance, which results in better symmetry and more defined contours of the nose.

This treatment is an excellent, affordable option for people who want to change the shape of their nose but do not want surgery. Results are instant; there is no downtime, no general anaesthetic and no prolonged healing.

when to choose non-surgical rhinoplasty:

  • To smooth contours of the nose
  • To even out bumps and depressions
  • To raise the bridge of the nose
  • To raise the tip of the nose
  • Nasal tip projection (For the tip to appear more pointed)
  • To make the nose appear slimmer
  • To decrease the flare of the nostrils
  • To achieve symmetry of the nostrils

Benefits of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

One of the major benefits of opting for non-surgical rhinoplasty is avoiding the risks associated with surgery. In many cases there is no downtime or recovery time required at all. This means there is no painful congestion, no uncomfortableness and no dramatic looking bruising and swelling.

The procedure is much quicker
Whilst not all issues can be corrected non-surgically, ones that can be corrected are often completed much quicker than with a regular nose job, and non surgical rhinoplasty is often referred to as the 15 minute nose job because it can be completed so quickly.

The procedure is very safe
Another fantastic benefit of non-surgical nose reshaping is that it’s incredibly safe as we use only a slight amount of local anaesthetic. There is much, much less bruising, and there is no need for stitches or dramatic looking bandages either. Most people are even able to return to work or to whatever they were doing beforehand on the same day.

Am I suitable for non-surgical rhinoplasty?

Non surgical nose reshaping can be performed on any patient who wishes to improve the appearance of their nose but does not want surgical Rhinoplasty. However, a large nose cannot be made smaller, although a bump or hump on the bridge can be smoothed out using this procedure. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is ideally suited for refining the nose or correcting small areas where they affect the general look of the nose. At your consultation we will listen to your concerns about your nose and let you know if non-surgical rhinoplasty is the right treatment for you.

Does non-surgical rhinoplasty require a general anaesthetic?

20-30 minutes before treatment topical anesthesia is applied to the surface of the nose, which delivers a good numbing effect. The filler itself also contains local anaesthetic and is injected into the required areas.

How long is the procedure?

The procedure is quick, lasting no more than 20 minutes.

How long is the recovery time?

You should avoid pressure on the nose for 5 days, so for example, avoid sleeping on the front or side. Minimal bruising may occur which usually resolves in 5 – 7 days. The nose may be tender for 3 – 5 days following treatment.

How long do the results last?

The results of will last from 6 to 18 months in general. Results vary from patient to patient so the above is a general guide.

Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty an alternative to a traditional Rhinoplasty?

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty cannot replace traditional Rhinoplasty if your concern is significant or the nose needs to be reduced in size.

Why have non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

The nose is the face’s central feature, which means its appearance has a significant effect on facial aesthetics. Since the shape, contours and tip of the nose strongly define its character, surgical alteration or reduction has been very popular in the past. However, due to the known complications, risks and recovery times that are associated with surgery, this is becoming less popular.

This is where the new, safe, non-surgical alternative to nasal surgery comes in. The procedure involves injecting dermal fillers into the crucial areas around the nose, altering its overall shape and resulting in a straighter nose.

If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose, have an unattractive bump or dent, or are simply looking for symmetry, non-surgical rhinoplasty can fix this.

How much does it cost?

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is priced at £299. The consultation is free.

“Ever since I caught a side angle of my face when I was much younger, it’s stayed with me until now, how much I hated my nose, it wasn’t that it was a big nose, but I just disliked it, didn’t like the bump that was clearly there and didn’t feel comfortable with people seeing my side profile, or, dreading photos that may have captured me from the side.”

“I did contemplate rhinoplasty, and the thought of saving up for months seemed impossible, plus it’s a huge decision, taking into account the time off I’d need, it didn’t seem feasible at this moment in time. 

So when I found out you could have a non surgical nose job, I thought hooray, my prayers have been answered! I had every confidence in Dr Melanie Castelhano, she has done lots of aesthetic work for me.

I felt slightly nervous before the procedure, because I didn’t know what to expect. I was given some numbing cream before hand, to which I applied liberally. Then Melanie talked me through each stage, taking her time, and making me feel completely comfortable and reassured. I thought it would be a painful experience, but it honestly wasn’t and it took no more than 15 minutes if that.

Straight after I could see the results, and I felt amazing, no pain, no swelling. The day after I had some slight bruising on my nose, but nothing major, it just looked like a little scrape. 5 days later, the bruising has almost gone, and my nose looks amazing, I catch myself in the mirror, and it’s now the nose I always dreamt of. It strangely seems smaller in shape too!”
