Non-Surgical Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

non-surgical nose surgery

If you read rhinoplasty advertisements, you’ll see many that promote a procedure widely known as non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Non-surgical nose surgery is the process of making a nose look better by injecting semi-permanent fillers such as:

  • Juvederm
  • Restylane
  • Radiesse

What the ads don’t say:  non-surgical nose surgery is primarily for noses that need only minimal augmentation or small touch-ups.

Consequently, rhinoplasty sans surgery accounts for less than five percent of nose shaping procedures. Plus, the fillers last only about a year or less.

In any case, you should probably consider health before beauty. A lot of people opt to have a nose surgery because that can also be used to improve one’s breathing or fix certain breathing problems they might have. If you’re interested, you can read more about the benefits of nose fillers at Tai Tai Magazine. After this, you might want to consider how much the non-surgical rhinoplasty cost.

The human body is a complicated thing and a lot of things can go wrong when you start changing things and inserting things that shouldn’t be there naturally. This is why you should always look for the best and most experienced medical professionals you can afford, and saving money on such procedures is never a smart idea. Especially in the facial area where there are a lot of muscles and nerves – a lot can go wrong.

On average, a non-surgical nose job in Singapore costs around $800-$1000.

Filler injections are actually used only in very few places on the nose, including:

  • Around small nasal bumps
  • To fill in the depression on a boxer’s nose, something your surgeon knows as a saddle nose deformity
  • Ski slope noses
  • Small pits or depressions on the sides of the nose
  • The depressed area between the top lip and nose

However, you would need an invasive rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of very large noses, for tip reductions and large humps. Many Asian and African-American patients, who have a flat bridge, ask for facial fillers to build up that part of the nose.

In a few cases, silicone – instead of face fillers — is injected into the nose. I personally don’t recommend silicone due to the high chances of developing lumps and bumps, or granulation, just under the skin and due to the possibility of infection.
