Rhinoplasty, or getting a nose job, is not something everyone always needs – I can look at a patient and declare, “no nose job needed here!” – but if it’s something you want to do for yourself, you should at least be aware of what it entails. Most people aren’t aware that you can use fillers to even out your nose! Today, I’m looking specifically into nose jobs that use fillers based on a study by Alexander Rivkin.
How it works
While fillers can really be used anywhere on the body, this particular study shows its use on noses that required only minor to moderate modifications. Fillers can be used to blend the bumps and valleys of your nose, lift sagging nasal tips and create a more linear profile for your nose. Using filler, you would typically undergo three to five injection sessions, spaced 30 days apart, where small amounts of material are injected each time and numbing medication is applied to alleviate the pain.
What to expect
It wouldn’t be surprising for bruising to appear, but not so noticeable that it couldn’t be covered up with foundation.
Things to be aware of
It is incredibly important that you make sure the person performing your injections knows their stuff when it comes to the blood supply around the eyes and nose!
Most importantly, be careful if you have had a nose job or any filler in your nose over the past year before proceeding with another treatment. Be sure to receive a proper consultation first, and always know your risks. Best of luck!
