Be wary of injectables for non-surgical Rhinoplasty

+4

Botox can be used on the nose to treat some of the wrinkles that are created when the muscle of the upper nose contract. This won't change the shape of the nose at all, though. The shape, size, proportions will look exactly the same as it did before.

So what is the "nonsurgical nose job"? Some people have been promoting the injection of filler materials, such as Restylane and Radiesse, to change the appearance of the nose. This has been referred to as a "nonsurgical nose job."

I would caution you to be very wary of this. Remember that fillers can only add volume. Injecting them under the skin of the nose will simply lift up that area of skin. The "nonsurgical nose job" (injecting the nose with filler) in 100% of cases therefore makes the nose bigger. The material injected is amorphous or like a gel, and so, it is impossible to "sculpt." Any results you see will be temporary, lasting until the material dissolves.

For these reasons, its pretty unusual for this to be a good choice for someone who wants to look better. I would suggest you (and others who read this), get more than one opinion if you are considering this. Make sure to visit with at least one surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty. It is considered perhaps the most difficult operation in all of plastic surgery. The aesthetics of the nose are nuanced. You deserve to see someone who devotes their practice to rhinoplasty, with years of experience helping people improve the appearance of the nose.

Unusual to use Botox for non-surgical nose job

+2

Botox could be used to change the angle of the tip of the nose relative to the upper lip. Is this what you had done? If you didn't have this particular manuver -- I'm not sure exactly how Botox would make a meaningful difference in your nose.

Generally, a nonsurgical nose job uses some kind of filler (Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse) to fill a deficit in some part of the nose. A very experienced surgeon may offer silicon as a permanent filler, and this can work very well when performed correctly. This works well if the nose has a pushed in appearance on one side or the other. If the nose has a mild to moderate hump it can be softened quite well by injecting filler just above and below the hump. Some tip contouring can also be performed with filler.

How much does something like this cost? Well, that depends on what filler is used, what part of the country you're in, and the particular surgeon you're dealing with. Having said that, I'd count of paying at least $750 to $1000 for a well done procedure.

Hope this helps

It depends on how much volume is needed to correct the problem.

+2

This type of procedure costs between $300-1000 depending on what needs to be done. Remember this is ONLY good for filling in defects. Radiesse lasts 12-18 months. Botox is only used for "bunny lines" at the side of the nose.

Restylane better than Botox for nose shaping

+2

Botox can slightly lift the nose tip, but actual reshaping is done best with Restylane in the hands of an experienced injector. The best part is that it usually requires only 0.4cc and this will cost only about $300-400. It will last at least 6 months, often one year.

Cost Price of Non Surgical Rhinoplasty , Liquid Rhinoplasty , Liquid Nosejob , Fillers, injectable nosejob

+1
Most physicians will inject Perlane or Radiesse for a liquid rhinoplasty, but more recently Voluma has become popular as well. The amount needed on average for a nose is 1 vial. For Perlane, the typical price in beverly hills is around $600-800 depending on the physician.  Radiesse might be a little more.  Voluma is supposed to last 1.5 times as long as perlane and costs anywhere from $900 - $1300 depending on the physician. In general, any material injected into the nose or cheek lasts longer than on more dynamic areas of the face. 

Of these injectables, all are good options, but one must realize the limitations of performing an injectable rhinoplasty / nosejob.  Unlike a surgical rhinoplasty, nothing can be removed or taken away.  Volume can only be added to certain areas in order to camouflage shadowing or provide better and smoother contours.  If this is done on a nose with already high features, it can be problematic.  Another thing to be cautious about is building up the projection or length of the nose which is often required when building up the dorsum or top of the nose.  Over injecting tight skin can be quite risky.  Non surgical or liquid rhinoplasty is easy to do in general and can be very rewarding, but you must always remember that it most definitely has its limits.

How Much a Non-Surgical Nose Job Costs

+1
A non-surgical nose job is typically performed by injecting a hyaluronic acid filler (commonly mixed up with Botox). Hyaluronic acid is very safe and is a substance already found in our bodies. Common hyaluronic acid injectable fillers include Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal products. This method is definitely less expensive than a rhinoplasty, with the average price for one vial of injectable filler being $500-$600. The results should last between 9-12months, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the product. You will need to continue to re-inject the nose along those timelines to maintain your look, however, it is a great option for some people who do not want surgery and who have the desire for the aesthetic look that an injectable filler in the nose can create.

Nonsurgical Nose Job in Atlanta

+1
Botox can be used to improve the wrinkles around the top of the nose and can be a part of a nonsurgical rhinoplasty but usually a filler is the main component.  Botox isn't a filler, however, it does relax muscles that can cause lines like in the forehead.  Fillers, such as perlane, voluma, and Radiesse are great options to contour a nose.  A nose can be made to look narrower, add a bridge, lift the tip, give the tip an appearance of narrowness, and fill shadows or asymmetries.  Sometimes, it can be used to make the nose look straighter or give the illusion of removing a hump.  Cost varies depending on the filler used but more importantly on the experience of the injector as this is what you're really paying for.  You'll see surgeons discourage patients from having this done and others feel its very doable so you want to find a very experienced surgeon when considering this procedure.  Lastly, look for someone who uses a blunt cannula to inject the filler into your nose...there are far fewer risks with blunt cannulas.

Nonsurgical nose job cost

 We do not recommend fillers placed in the nose, since they're only temporary and aad bulk and volume to the nose. There are also complications that can occur with these injections in the nose. Botox can be used for the" bunny lines" along the top of the nose to help with wrinkles.
 Rhinoplasty as a surgical procedure to change the shape of the cartilages and bones located in the nose underneath the skin. Virtual rhinoplasty software is available on the link below, along with our rhinoplasty photo gallery to give you an idea of what can and cannot be accomplished with the surgical procedure
