Non-invasive nose jobs utilize fillers like Botox to blend bumps and contours without going under the knife.
Nose jobs are one of the most common plastic surgery procedures on the market, but there’s a new type of rhinoplasty that’s quickly becoming the talk of the town.
Plastic surgeons are now offering non-invasive nose jobs that can be performed so fast that you can get a makeover during your lunch break. It may sound too good to be true, but it’s all made possible by repurposing fillers like Botox to blend bumps and contours rather than wrinkles.
“Nothing is done to the bones or cartilage,” NYC-based plastic surgeon Matthew Schulman told womenshealthmag.com. “This is an alternative for patients who want a subtle and natural improvement to the appearance of their nose and offers the advantage of avoiding surgery.”
While the revolutionary rhinoplasties can be administered in a fraction of the time as their surgical counterparts, the results aren’t nearly as long-lasting. The fillers naturally dissolve in the body over a year or two, but injections to the nose last longer than when used to smooth fine lines. Another pro of the procedure is that side-effects are much less common.
“Allergic reactions are extremely rare,” says Schulman. “More commonly are lumps, bumps and bruises, which are temporary.” Depending on the type of filler, non-invasive nose jobs retail for approximately $500 to $800, which is a much more affordable price point than the traditional procedure.
