Am I a candidate for a non surgical nose job? Would just like to even out a bit, can it be done without surgery? (Photo)

You may be a candidate for a non-surgical nose job.
If you want to even the nose out, I would suggest consulting with a surgeon who has long experience using the fillers. Permanent fillers are excellent. You could also opt for temporaries, but be sure to have the technique in which sterile salt water is injected into the nose to show the predicted result. The salt water disappears in a couple of hours, but you will have a good idea about what can be accomplished. Also, it allows you to give your input because you are just sitting there in the treatment chair, watching in a mirror.
You also may want to have computer imaging when you consult with the surgeon, but be sure to consult with somebody who has facility and long experience with the non-surgical approaches. These are becoming much more popular.
I hope this information helps.
Best wishes from Beverly Hills, California.

Nonsurgical Nose Jobs Work Well For Smoothing "Hills & Valleys" Along The Spine Of The Nose
For a good idea of how the result may actually look, your physician might inject a little salt or anesthetic solution. The results of this test usually last about five minutes before all the solution is absorbed, which it generally enough time to get a decent idea of what the actual result will look like.
In my Upper East Side Manhattan practice I would use a combination of Radiesse plus Perlane L. In my Israel satellite office, where many more regulatory agency approved injectable fillers and volumizing agents are available, I would choose Radiesse plus Restylane SQ.
in experienced hands, the procedure should not take more than five or ten minutes and the results are immediate and typically engender a "Wow!" response.
