A “Nose Job” Without Surgery?

Posted on June 4, 2013 by Ella Fedonenko

When we talk about the “fabulous fillers,” everyone knows we’re referring to the most popular non-surgical “face lift” alternatives in the beauty industry today. Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane and Radiesse.

For hollows and folds, deep wrinkles and strategically placed “lift and firm” areas of the face, these derma fillers have revolutionized the industry.

But, over time, ultra-skilled physicians and experienced practitioners have discovered new and exciting ways to expand the use and take full advantage of the benefits these drugs have to offer. Just as BOTOX, the granddaddy of all wrinkle and line erasers, is now used for so many other disorders – like migraine headaches, muscles spasms, etc. – facial fillers are serving double-duty, as well.

The non-surgical nose job, chin or cheek augmentation and jowl camouflage are a few of the procedures gaining the most popularity in dermatology offices from New York to L.A.

In a matter of about 15 minutes, with the artistic touch of a top-notch practitioner, the right amount of volume can be injected to correct a surgical rhinoplasty (nose job) or to simply re-shape a nose or to diminish the appearance of a bump, etc.

The average cost of a nose job, in the U.S., is in the range of $5,000 – $6,000, depending upon where you live. Could go considerably higher; probably not much lower. Pain and down-time is also considerable.

As for the results, the good news and the bad news is the same. If you love it, it’s yours forever. If you hate it, it’s yours forever.

For the non-surgical nose job, the good news is that the cost is in the range of $800 – $1,000. Depending upon the filler of choice, the results could last up to 12 – 14 months and adjustments can be done immediately.
