A non-surgical nosejob or rhinoplasty is when injectable fillers are used to build up certain areas of the nose, most commonly the upper bridge of the nose to smooth out a small hump in the nose. It is not for narrowing or reshaping parts of the nose, such as the button nose you describe. A button nose is due to the cartilages that make up the tip of the nose being too wide. That can only be narrowed by actual tip rhinoplasty surgery.

Non-surgical nosse jobs
I am not a big fan of using fillers solely for the purpose of imrpoving the appearance of the nose. It is nice for a small contour deficiency in either a post-rhinoplasty patients or someone who is not a great candidate for a rhinoplasty.
Without seeing a photo, I can't tell if your "button nose" could be improved by a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure.
Feel free to email your photo, along with a description, and I'll be happy to share my thoughts with you. If you would like to have your nasal bridge raised, a non-surgical nose job may be an excellent option for you. In my practice, I prefer Silikon-1000 for permanent results.
I hope this helps you.

A non-surgical nose job (fillers in the nose) is a a B-grade procedure, period. I would not recommend it for reshaping the nasal tip. If you have concerns bout the appearance of your nose, see an experienced Rhinoplasty Surgeon.
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty Can Change Nasal Shape
The use of fillers to change the nasal shape is being offered as an alternative to surgery. An important consideration is that injecting a filler will make your nose bigger. Generally, tip concerns revolve around making the tip smaller. If your only concern is the tip, I would recommend consulting a board-certified facial plastic or general plastic surgeon. Generally, there is an option that has very little recovery and the result is permanent.
The injection of fillers can primarily change the bridge of the nose, and the tip. If restylane or juvederm are used, it willlast for about 6 to nine months. Radiesse lasts about 18 months. For a more detailed answer, please post a pic.
