Be wary of injectables for non-surgical Rhinoplasty

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

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

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

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.

Nonsurgical Nose Job in Atlanta

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.

Restylane better than Botox for nose shaping

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.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty done with filler materials

Botox can be used on the nose to accomplish two things: diminish "bunny lines" and occasionally lift the tip slightly. A non-surgical rhinoplasty, however, is accomplished using filler material like Restylane. These materials can be used to improve a dorsal hump, camouflage a crooked nose to make it look straighter, lift the tip slightly and smooth out some contour irregularities. The filler material is injected under the nasal skin to create these improvements. But, this is not a procedure to be done by inexperienced injectors, since catastrophic consequences can occur if the nasal blood supply is occluded with filler. Make sure your injector is skilled, both in injection technique and knowledge of nasal anatomy.

Cost of a non-surgical nose job

First of all you will need a detailed consultation to see whether or not this is suitable for you. Remember that the results are not permanent and last 6-12 months maximum. The treatment is useful if there is a small dorsal hump or slight drooping of the nasal tip. Some slight deviation of the nasal bridge can be 'straightened' but the nose will be slightly wider. However, the overall appearance of the nose will be more aesthetically pleasing. 

It is a highly skilled procedure and detailed anatomical knowledge is necessary to help minimise complications. It does not always treat the same indications as a surgical rhinoplasty.

In my practice the fee starts from £500.

How Much Does a Non Surgical Nose Job Cost?

Medicine versus marketing(and cost) are a  important recurrent themes in today's global economy.. While your question is important, "how much does it cost?," I remind you that this is your face(or body, as the case may be) and therefore,  caveat emptor---buyer be ware. Remember the doctor-patient relationship; trust medically, surgically and aesthetically with reversibility.Back to injectable rhinoplasty:The same dermal fillers that provide volume in facial rejuvenation are effective when treating the nose. The advent of the new generation of injectable agents such as hyaluronic acids (Restylane, Juvederm) and Radiesse, a calcium based filler have provided a quantum shift in the ability to treat soft tissue changes of the face secondary to aging. It is possible to re-volumize and treat the forehead, temples, brow, lower lids, cheeks, nasolabial folds, jawline and chin. The same agents are just as effective when treating the nose. For those born with cosmetically imperfect nasal features, these injectable agents are able to treat virtually all minor cosmetic issues and can in many cases mimic the result of a surgical rhinoplasty with the exception of the functional breathing component. Injectable nose reshaping provides an alternative to surgery if timing, a minor alteration or budget is of concern. In most cases one treatment can adequately deal with the vast majority of aesthetic priorities. Occasionally a touch up will be required once swelling has resolved. Bruising is rare and swelling is expected the first 24-48 hours. The treatment takes about 30 minutes and is done with a local block. While many patients are satisfied with their injectable nose reshaping and are happy to be re injected every 2-3 years, others use this procedure to gain confidence and trust by test driving the physician’s aesthetic and then move forward with their plan for operative rhinoplasty. Injectable Rhinoplasty allows the patient to “test drive” the surgeon’s aesthetic style as well as his or her bedside manner. Injectable rhinoplasty allows patients to preview a surgical result in a more realistic fashion than computer imaging where virtually any change can be drawn on a computer screen. CAD is not as legitimate as many assume. I prefer to show actual “before” and “after” photos of other patients with similar conditions. Fillers can enhance a surgical rhinoplasty post operatively.  When minor irregularities are present after surgical rhinoplasty, fillers can help avoid the necessity of additional surgery to make subtle corrections. In fact, injectables may be a more well suited and accurate modality when treating minor soft tissue irregularities. Correcting a droopy tip with injectables is actually an anti-aging procedure. The nose changes with aging of the face. Contrary to popular belief the nose does not technically grow bigger or longer. It does however change shape—especially the tip. Pointing the tip upwards with injectables can soften the patient’s appearance. There are certain conditions where surgery is the better/only option for the desired result. Patients who are candidates for functional reconstruction (e.g. deviated septum) cannot avoid surgery. Injectable rhinoplasty will not address a broad or boxy tip or a nose that is too large. However, the illusion of a smaller nose can be created with carefully placed injections at the tip and between the eyebrows.The cost is approximately $750-1500 and routinely lasts two to three years.

Botox Can Raise the Tip

A tension tip caused by the nasal depressor muscle pulling the tip down can be improved with BOTOX.
This muscle can be activated with smiling and it pulls the tip down.
A little BOTOX in this area can stop the active pull down with smiling and raise the tip slightly at rest. The result is only for some months while the BOTOX is working.  A more permanent solution for the muscle tension tip is to trim the muscle from the inside of the lip.
