The nose is one of the very first things we notice about someone’s face when engaged in conversation with them. Some people may be self-conscious about their nose, noticing such things as bumpiness, droopiness, or that their nose is not straight. Occasionally, surgery is required to correct these problems but for many people, there is a way to achieve improvement with filler alone: The non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an alternative to surgery, this procedure is performed using injectable fillers, such as Juvéderm Voluma®, and sometimes botulinum toxin to restore a more symmetric look to your nose. Controlled and precise injections can make the nose look more proportional and smaller in the facial frame.
The use of injectable fillers can also diminish the appearance of bumps on the nose. Injecting fillers into the bridge above the bump, gives the appearance of a straighter nose. The results last approximately two years. This cannot, however, make a bridge smaller, or create a gentle, feminine curve in the bridge that many women desire. While this creates a straighter nose it does not make it smaller.
A droopy nasal tip can also be lifted with injections. A droopy tip of the nose can be caused by an overactive depressor septi muscle that pulls down the nasal tip, especially when smiling. BOTOX® can be injected in between the nostrils on the under-surface of the nose to release this muscle and create a more upturned nose.
