Non surgical Nose job

Hey so if your nose is a little bit wide, thick and European. Is it possible that a non surgical nose job could camouflage the wide tip to make it appear more sharper or more straight?

Thick and wide nose

Non surgical procedures such as fillers are very helpful to improve the shape and contour of the nose but it is impossible to make recommendations without seeing you in person or at least your photographs.  Fillers can’t make the nose smaller.  If the nose is a little bit too wide and thick a non-surgical Rhinoplasty with filler will probably not be helpful. Only a consultation with a plastic surgeon that’s also an experienced injector can help you determine which approach is right for you.

Non Surgical Rhinoplasty -- Fillers Like Voluma, Restylane, Juvederm

Fillers cannot take a wide nose and make it look smaller. I suggest you post photos and see an expert for a consultation to determine what is best. Dr. Emer.

nonsurgical nose job

A non-surgical nose job is going to make the nose bigger, wider, and taller on a temporary basis. If the nose is already wide and thick, the injections will make it worse. In addition, there are significant complications that can occur with placement of fillers in the nose, and it is not FDA approved for that application.

Nonsurgical Nose Jobs Work Best For Dorsal Humps & Bumps; Lifting Droopy Tips; & Addressing Some Irregularities & Asymmetries

Without seeing photos, I can only make a few general comments. Nonsurgical nose jobs using fillers work well for straightening bumps at the bridge of the nose; correcting some surface irregularities left by rhinoplasty along the spine of the nose; elevating the tips of the nose; filling in clefts at the tip;  and correcting asymmetries (such as if one side wall being a bit more depressed than the other or if one side of the nasal tip is pointier or projects a bit more than the other side). Not uncommonly when the bridge area is filled in order to straighten a bump or curve, the secondary pull on the remainder of the nose, particularly on the lower portion, imparts a desirable appearance of general nasal thinning and tapering. Whether the latter can be helpful to you can best be determined by an in-person consultation. If deemed necessary, a small amount of saline or diluted anesthetic solution may be injected at the time of consultation as a quick (the results last only about five minutes), real-world test to see whether and how much you might benefit from an actual nonsurgical nose job. Best of luck to you.

Usually no

Non surgical nose jobs are often a waste of money and time. They are for very tiny problems and need to be repeated as the fillers go away.
