Non-surgical Nose Job to Fix Nose Hump?

I am considering a non surgical nose job but i am scared that it will not look right. I want the hump filled in but Im just nervous about it. Will a non surgical nose job fix my nose hump or do I need a rhinoplasty for this?

No such thing



There is no such thing as a non-surgical nose job - no matter what some doctors say or how they market it. These terms have been recently introduced to the market due to patient demand and its mostly a product of California cosmetic surgery. If you look at the top rhinoplasty surgeons in the world, non of them do a non surgical nose job. A nose job is a surgical procedure.

Now you can inject a little safe restylane or juvederm (nothing else) above the bump to make your profile more linear but the problem is that the nose may look too large and the bigger problem is that the fillers can cause scarring, infection, etc, leaving you worse off than where you started. However, there are plenty of surgeons doing bad nose jobs leaving you worse off as well. IDEALLY you want to find a great surgeon and get a great true nose job or just leave it alone. You are a beautiful girl and you dont need to mess with your face unless its in the right way.

Nonsurgical Nose Jobs Can Work Well For Nasal Bumps and Humps


There is no question that  nonsurgical nose jobs can work well for curved  noses, bumps and saddle deformities (as well as downturned--or drooping-- nasal tips).

I have been performing these procedures for more than eight years and have found nonsurgical nose jobs quite effective for straightening humps and bumps (and depressions) along the bridge and top of the nose.

From the before and after pictures of my patient shown in the side bar to this answer, I believe that it is clear that you indeed appear be a candidate for this kind of treatment. If necessary, to confirm this before proceeding, a small amount of salt solution can be injected as a test into the appropriate areas of the nose to confirm this.

Filling a dorsal hump?


If you are unhappy with your profile because of a dorsal hump, the best way to treat that is with a rhinoplasty. I would not recommend a filler in that case.

Nose reshaping can improve your profile


Nasal reshaping can improve the balance and symmetry of the nose.  With modern techniques, there are both surgical and non surgical options.  If you have a problem with breathing from your nose a surgical option may be the best.

Surgical and Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Will Work


Both surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty will work to improve your profile. It appears that you have a low starting point for your nose. If you want a permanent solution, nothing will beat a rhinoplasty though.

Injectable Rhinoplasty will make your nose straight.


An injectable rhinoplasty can make your nasal profile straight. Your hump on the bridge of your nose will be camouflaged by filling in the valleys above and below. However your nose will be the same size and in fact probably slightly larger. This may be unacceptable. The best way to help you decide before hand is to have your face imaged and then computer assisted modified. You may then decide you will have a classic rhinoplasty as you may feel the nose also needs to be reduced in size overall.

You are NOT a candidate for a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty.


Dear MJay,

Unfortunately, your nose is a bit too large to consider Injectable Fillers to correct your hump. You don't need the hump filled in; you need a Surgical Rhinoplasty to lower the hump so your nose is less of a prominent feature on your attractive face.

I've attached a photo of small hump improved with Injectable Fillers in a male patient. You can see your profile is much different.

I hope this helps, and best regards.

Filler Injection instead of Rhinoplasty


I would not recommend that for you. You would need a bit more that injections to make your nose the way you would want it. The hump needs to be take down, your tip then will be too long or what we call overly projecting once the hump is taken down, so that would need to be addressed and slightly rotating the tip upwards.

You will not be content with filler injections.

You need a rhinoplasty


You are not a candidate for a "non surgical nose job" - that is designed to fill in minor defects and is not permanent. You need removal of the bump and a slight rotation of the tip. You want to be evaluated by a plastic surgeon who has experience in rhinoplasty. The result should then be permanent with one surgery.

Non-surgical nose job


A non-surgical nose job is a temporary means of assessing how you may look by filling in the area just above your hump. This will make you hump look smaller. The only way to acheive a permanent solution is to undergo a traditional rhinoplasty. IF this is something you would like to try you may want to consider a hyalurnic filler that can be "reversed" with off label use of hyaluronidase.
