What is a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
The nose is seen as the anchor feature of the face, and so it is rather common for individuals to feel unhappy regarding the aesthetics of their nose. And though surgery can be used, the use of a non-surgical nose job to aesthetically correct perceived defects have been in use since the turn of the 19th century and provide a non-invasive procedure with minimal bruising and swelling. The non-surgical rhinoplasty has gained popularity due to its less invasive nature, effectiveness and quick recovery.
What is involved in a non-surgical nose job?
Here at LINIA Skin, our non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures involve injecting the award winning Juvederm filler under the nasal skin, most commonly within the deep subcutaneous tissue above the periosteum.
The full procedure typically only takes 20 to 30 minutes and requires very little if any recovery time, allowing you to immediately resume normal activities.
Here at LINIA Skin we proud ourselves in utilising the renowned filler Juvederm due to its fantastic results along with its safe non-allergenic properties.

What can a non-surgical rhinoplasty be used for?
Non-surgical rhinoplasties can be used to help correct a wide range of atheistic nasal defects such as:
- augmentation of a flat nasal bridge
- added projection of the nasal tip
- correction of retracted columella
- small reduction of nostril size
- the perceptual diminution of a nasal hump
- filling a nasal sidewall depression
- enhancing a retracted anterior nasal spine
- enhancement of a retracted maxilla lateral to the pyriform aperture to displace the anterior plane
- elevation of a saddle nose deformity caused by a failed primary rhinoplasty
- traumatic injury
Depending on the look needed or the defect that needs to be fixed, we can achieve your required look with careful injection of dermal filler.
For example, a ‘hooked’ nose can be made completely straight with careful injection underneath and on top of the ‘bump’. This can make your nose look completely straight.
For a thinner looking nose, we would precisely apply filler to the surrounding area of the nose tip. This technique can make a nose look slimmer and more refined.
In combination, if you need a lift in the tip area of your nose to complete the look, a botox injection could be suitable.
The muscle responsible for the nose being pulled down is the depressor nasalis. A careful botox injection will relax this muscle, thus providing a nose lift.

How long will my nose filler result last?
Typically around a year to 18 months. This is longer than other areas of the body that are treated with filler because our nose isn’t a body part that we move around often. The stationary nature of the nose means the filler isn’t absorbed as quickly.
What if I don’t like my non-surgical nose job result?
One of the biggest benefits of a non-surgical rhinoplasty is that, unlike a traditional rhinoplasty surgery, it’s not permanent. In fact, this treatment is commonly used to correct rhinoplasty that patients are unhappy with or have been botched.
If you don’t like your non-surgical nose job result, you can wait a few months for the filler to be naturally absorbed by your body, or we can simply reverse the procedure if you don’t want to wait.
What are the Potential Side Effects of a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Juvéderm is a dermal filler that consists of hyaluronic acid which is biodegradable by the body and is naturally broken down and removed by our body over time. The side effects tend to be related to the injection instead, like bruising, redness and swelling. These subside in a few days and is completely normal.
Other less common side effects may include:
- Minor pain
- Bumps or lumps
These side effects will almost always resolve in a few days, but your Doctor will always be available for aftercare should this not be the case.
Your Doctor will sit with you in your consultation and answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding side effects and the suitability of a non-surgical nose job.
