What is a non - surgical rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe, non-invasive alternative to the traditional rhinoplasty and is sometimes referred to as the '15-minute nose job'.

The procedure uses injectable fillers, most commonly hyaluronic acid, to alter and shape a person's nose without invasive surgery. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic facial procedures, but many patients are worried about they may look after surgery.

As a new alternative to nose reshaping surgery (rhinoplasty), small amounts of hyaluronic acid filler is injected into the nose to straighten and soften sharp angles, fill depressions, or change the shape of the tip of the nose to give it a lifted appearance. This quick technique results in better symmetry and more defined nose contours.

If it is the shape of your nose, rather than its size, that is causing concern then a non-surgical rhinoplasty is an excellent, affordable option for those who want to change the shape of their nose without invasive surgery, as there is no excessive downtime, no general anaesthetic and no prolonged healing. The patient retains complete control over the procedure, as they are able to see the results unfold as the injections are administered.

This procedure is also less expensive than a surgical nose job (rhinoplasty) and can be reversed via hyalase injections should the result not be in line with expectations. Unlike a surgical rhinoplasty, the non-surgical results are immediate and can last up to a year.

What are the benefits of a non surgical rhinoplasty?

  • Quick 10-15 minute treatment
  • Performed by highly experienced plastic surgeon
  • Immediate, natural – looking results 
  • Reversible results
  • Avoid invasive surgery 
  • No surgical scarring
  • No downtime, and an immediate return to work and daily routine

Why do people have non surgical rhinoplasty?

A non- surgical rhinoplasty is a highly effective treatment to:

  • Smooth bumps and uneven contours 
  • Improve nose profile 
  • Correct asymmetrical noses
  • Straighten a hooked or crooked nose
  • Add height and profile to a flat nose 
  • Correct nasal tip droops

A non surgical rhinoplasty is also a highly effective tool to refine any remaining imperfections following a surgical rhinoplasty.

This treatment can also be combined with Anti Ageing Injectables, Dermal Fillers and Lip Fillers for the maximal impact.

How does a non surgical rhinoplasty work?

Nose fillers are a series of small injections of hyaluronic acid gel which will are applied to the soft tissue in the nose to shape, straighten and contour.

Injecting the dermal filler takes less than half an hour and the results will be instant and should last roughly 12 months.

What are the different types of nose filler used at the Cadogan Clinic?

There are several different types of nose fillers and choosing the right type for you will depend on your desired results.

At the Cadogan Clinic we only use temporary or 'resorbable' fillers based on naturally occurring hyaluronic acid that dissolves over time, as these are the safest and lower the risk of any long term side effects.

There are many different types of temporary fillers, at the Cadogan Clinic we only use the following best in-class brands:

  • Juvederm: industry leading filler product made by Allergan and most popular hyaluronic product on the market with over 30M users worldwide 
  • Restylane: industry leading filler product made by Galderma, and another exceptionally popular product on the market 

Pricing

Non surgical rhinoplasty treatments at the Cadogan clinic vary in cost depending on the filler product used and the amount used, but treatments typically start from £550

Frequently Asked Questions

Non surgical rhinoplasty employs the use of dermal fillers to reshape and recontour the nose, without the use of invasive plastic surgery.

The treatment lasts for up to a year, and delivers immediate, natural – looking and reversible results.

Non surgical rhinoplasty is best suited for improving the appearance of any minor cosmetic imperfections, whilst surgical alternatives are better suited to more major cosmetic and structural changes to the nose.

A non- surgical rhinoplasty is a highly effective treatment to:

+ Smooth bumps and uneven contours
+ Improve nose profile
+ Correct asymmetrical noses
+ Straighten a hooked or crooked nose
+ Add height and profile to a flat nose
+ Correct nasal tip droops

A non- surgical rhinoplasty is not a suitable treatment for:

+ Reducing the overall size of the nose
+ Correcting major nose asymmetry
+ Nose tip reduction
+ Reducing large humps in the nose

The treatment can take between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Repeat visits can be shorter, and take between 10 – 15 minutes

Dermal Filler treatments in the UK are currently unregulated meaning any aesthetic practitioner can perform them. This has led to the proliferation of low quality 'high street' providers, and filler treatments even being made available in non-medical environments such as gyms.

At the Cadogan Clinic we believe such practices are extremely risky and highly correlated with unsafe and poor aesthetic outcomes.

We only offer consultant – led filler treatments, performed by highly qualified plastic surgeons. This is particularly important when it comes to nose fillers given the importance of advanced techniques to deliver optimal aesthetic outcomes in the nose area.

Dermal filler treatments are generally not painful, although the amount of discomfort you experience may vary depending on the area.

Treatments around the lip and nose area are typically the most uncomfortable but this can still easily be tolerated with topically applied anaesthetic cream.

There is typically no downtime at all.

There may be a slight mild redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, or itching which usually subsides after a few hours following treatment - most patients can return to work or to their regular activities immediately after receiving treatment, although we recommend 24hrs before doing any vigorous exercise.

Dermal fillers work instantly so you should start to see the results immediately. We typically recommend allowing a week or so before expecting to see the final results, in order to allow for any minor swelling or bruising to subside.

We specialise in the delivery of exceptionally precise treatments, and our consultants can control your outcome based on your stated personal preferences. Some patients prefer an extremely subtle change, whilst others may prefer something slightly more meaningful.

Either way your results will look natural, as our specialists will use the natural contours of your face to deliver the very best outcomes. You will also retain a full array of facial expressions.

This will all be discussed comprehensively at your consultation.

The vast majority of fillers used in the UK are temporary and reabsorbed by the body over time.

We only use temporary dermal fillers at the Cadogan Clinic. Our Dermal Filler treatments are therefore not permanent. How long they last depends on things like the type of filler and where it's injected. They usually last between 6 and 18 months.

Dermal Fillers are extremely safe when delivered by a trained medical practitioner. Outcomes can be managed precisely by a technical practitioner, and results are also not permanent and can be rectified ('dissolved') if they are not to your satisfaction.

That said, whilst extremely rare when fillers are delivered in a medical environment by a medical professional, possible risks include:

+ Asymmetry, or uneven result
+ Allergic reaction
+ Bruising, bleeding on injection site, swelling
+ Damage to skin and possible scarring
+ Lumps of filler under the skin
+ Skin necrosis
+ Infection

These risks will be fully discussed at your consultation prior to your consent.

Although there is no evidence that indicates dermal fillers are not safe during pregnancy, the Cadogan Clinic does not perform any injectable treatments on patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

During your consultation you will discuss your expectations in detail with your trained medical consultant, so there really should not be any surprise when it comes to the results.

That said, if you are unhappy with the results you are free to revisit the Clinic to see if your concerns can be rectified by the addition of further dermal filler, or neutralised by administering a solution that dissolves the filler almost instantly, leaving no lasting damage or effect.

It is best to arrive at the Clinic with your skin as best prepared for your dermal filler treatment as it can be. This would ideally include not drinking alcohol for 2-3 days prior to your appointment to lessen the risk of bleeding and bruising, as well as having had plenty of rest the night before your treatment to ensure you arrive feeling calm and relaxed.

It is also advised that you do not consume ibuprofen and aspirin for 1 week prior to your appointment as these can also thin your blood making bruising more likely.

Over time the naturally occurring active agent in dermal fillers – hyaluronic acid – will wear off. At this point you will need to visit the Clinic for additional treatment.

We do not offer permanent dermal filler treatments. For more permanent solutions, we typically recommend a surgical rhinoplasty as opposed to permanent fillers.

A vial is a measurement of the injectable liquid administered during dermal filler treatment. Typically, treatment for nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) requires 1-2 vials, marionette lines require 1 vial, lips require 1 – 2 vials and cheeks require 2 vials.

The cost of your treatment will relate to the number of vials you require during treatment.

Yes, all nose filler procedures are reversible if you are not happy with the results. This can be done in 10 minutes using the properties of a solution called hyalase.

No. Filler injections cause very little pain and are only slightly uncomfortable. The procedure is very straightforward and will only take around 30 minutes.

In some instances some topical local anaesthetic may be applied.

Yes, invasive and non invasive rhinoplasty procedures are highly complementary in their aims and outcomes, and work well together as combination treatments.

We recommend you wait at least a year however to allow for the full results of your surgical rhinoplasty to be visible.

If there are any remaining minor imperfections at this point, a non surgical rhinoplasty can be the optimal treatment to deliver your goals.Yes, invasive and non invasive rhinoplasty procedures are highly complementary in their aims and outcomes, and work well together as combination treatments.

You will certainly want to take good care of your nose area after your non surgical rhinoplasty treatment. Wearing glasses, is generally fine however.

Rhinoplasty surgery is generally a better option for those looking to make more significant changes to the size, shape and function of their nose.

We recommend you speak to your consultant about both during your consultation
