Non Surgical Nose Job for African American Woman?

I am interested in defining the bridge of my nose and wanted to know if I would be an ideal candidate for a non surgical nose job. I am not looking to reduce the size of my nostrils or the tip of my nose. I noticed that many pics feature side profiles so I wonder if I will see a big difference from the front as well. Pls advise, thxs!

African American patients can have successful non-surgical rhinoplasty!

Hello Antoinette74,

Thanks for your question.  Yes, non-surgical rhinoplasty can be used successfully to increase definition from the frontal view.  It is important to note that this definition comes at a cost: a larger nose.  Depending on the type of nose you have, and the deficient areas present, this could actually be a good thing.  I recommend that you consult with a board-certified plastic or facial plastic surgeon that specializes in rhinoplasty to see if your particular anatomy can be complemented by non-surgical rhinoplasty.

I hope this helps.

Good luck,

Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

The non surgical nose job can be used to build up the bridge of your nose.  This is most noticeable from the side profile.  Please consult with a board certified specialist who can assist you in achieving the results you seek that are also balanced for your face.

I don't think that a non-surgical rhinoplasty will define your bridge the way you may think. In order to see great results you would do best with a custom carved silicone implant. I have done hundreds of these with great success. See link below for before and after photos and testamonial video.
