Non Surgical Nose Job using Fillers

We receive frequent calls in Houston for patients requesting non surgical nose jobs using fillers. This is a technique utilized to minimize postoperative recovery and an attempt to make a nose job more affordable.

However, non surgical rhinoplasty is truly indicated for very few patients. A non surgical nose job or rhinoplasty will actually make the nose larger as you are adding volume to the nose. Filler such as Restylane, Juvederm or Radiesse can be injected above the hump to give the illusion that the nose now has a straight profile. However, this would make the nose bigger. This will also not rotate the tip, refine the tip, make the nostrils narrower, or straighten the nose.

Therefore filler for the nose can adjust small irregularities in the nose but is not a great option for rhinoplasty.
