We all know there’s no absolute definition of beauty, and what’s inside is much more important than outside looks. But we also know that when we’re happy with our appearance, it gives our self-confidence a massive boost and we have a much more positive outlook on life. Some of us have little nose imperfections that make us feel self-conscious that we would like to have fixed and nose reshaping is one of these.

For clients who are reluctant to go under the surgeon’s knife, the Skin to Love Clinic offers non-surgical rhinoplasty at our Hertfordshire clinic which is also called a non-surgical nose job, for people who do not want or require a dramatic correction but would like to make their nose appear straighter or more symmetrical. This allows you to make corrections to your nose without having to resort to cosmetic surgery. When looking at your options for nose reshaping relating to plastic surgery, you can either look into closed rhinoplasty or open rhinoplasty. Both of these involve a nose-reshaping operation and are permanent.
This procedure does have limitations in comparison to the surgical alternative, open rhinoplasty, but can be an effective nose-reshaping treatment for some people with a lump or bumps on the nose bridge. It is also perfect at correcting an asymmetrically shaped nose to give a more balanced profile without the need for invasive surgery. It allows for nose corrections without having to break and restructure your nasal bones or your nasal septum, meaning that the non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure has far less downtime than its nose-reshaping surgery counterpart. Furthermore, it is reversible, unlike nose surgery, if you require corrections and changes post your treatment, this is possible.

With advanced techniques, our medical practitioners reshape the nose by injecting dermal fillers through microfine needles and filling in any small depressions to help soften the shape of the nose and make it look more refined.
It’s a virtually pain-free procedure and most patients only report slight discomfort in the form of the sensation of pressure, rather than pain. However, we apply a local anaesthetic cream prior to treatment to make it as comfortable as we can for you. Results are instantly visible and whilst it is not a permanent treatment and not a replacement for having a nose surgery, the effects can last up to 18 months. There is very little downtime too, with mainly some swelling and redness in the area that has been treated and this usually calms down within 48 hours.
This treatment uses an advanced filler technique and it does require a lot of knowledge and experience to make sure you’re in safe hands, as with all dermal fillers, it does have associated side effects. Make sure that your practitioner is a registered medical practitioner prior to treatment, after all, your safety is more important than anything else.
Prior to treatment at Skin to Love, you’ll have a full consultation with our medical practitioner who will assess how your nose presents and decide if this will be a suitable treatment for you and make sure that you have all of the information you need. If they feel that you would be more suitable for surgical treatment, they will discuss this with you. So if you are looking for non-surgical rhinoplasty near you, contact us today.
Many individuals who consider rhinoplasty have aesthetic concerns about their noses. These concerns often revolve around the bridge and the tip of the nose. For instance, some people may be bothered by a prominent hump lump on the bridge of their nose. Others may find their nasal tip droops downwards.
In certain cases, individuals opt for rhinoplasty due to medical reasons. These medical reasons can include nasal injuries resulting from accidents, which may lead to a broken or bent nose. Some of these outward appearances from injury may be suitable to correct with non-surgical nose reshaping however, others may have functional breathing issues related to their nasal airways non-surgical rhinoplasty will not be able to help.
From a psychological point of view, non-surgical rhinoplasty may help some individuals whose mental health is being negatively impacted by the appearance of their nose. Non-surgical rhinoplasty may help in some circumstances.
The most common objectives of rhinoplasty procedures include:
When considering whether to choose nose surgery or non-surgical rhinoplasty, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of each option. Both approaches have their own advantages and suitability for different individuals and circumstances.
Nose Surgery (Surgical Rhinoplasty):
Rhinoplasty surgery is an invasive procedure that involves making incisions and reshaping the nose’s structure whilst under general anaesthetic.
It is typically chosen by individuals who seek major changes to their nose’s appearance, such as altering the size.
Recovery time for surgical rhinoplasty is longer, and there may be post-operative swelling, bruising, and discomfort.
The results of surgical rhinoplasty are often permanent, making it suitable for those seeking a lasting transformation.
Non-Permanent Results: Non-surgical rhinoplasty offers temporary results, providing individuals with the flexibility to see if they like the changes to their noses or revert to their natural features over time. This is particularly appealing for those who may be uncertain about permanent changes.
Immediate Transformation: Unlike surgical alternatives that require weeks or even months for recovery and results to fully manifest after the swelling subsides, non-surgical rhinoplasty delivers immediate changes to the nose’s appearance. Patients can see their transformed noses right after the procedure. It is worth noting that you can expect some swelling post-non-surgical treatment, but in our experience, this does not last as long.
Reduced Risk: Non-surgical rhinoplasty doesn’t involve the same risks as surgery and general anaesthetic.
Non-Invasive Procedure: Non-surgical nose reshaping, often referred to as “nose filler” or a “non-surgical nose job,” utilizes dermal filler injections. These injections are minimally invasive, involving no surgical incisions, scalpels, or general anaesthesia.
Expert Care: Experienced medical practitioners only perform non-surgical rhinoplasty at our clinic, ensuring that the procedure is carried out with skill, precision and safety in the forefront of their minds. Patients should seek the skill of a qualified medical practitioner who is trained in this advanced technique, experienced in it, and is insured.
Quick Treatment: Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a swift procedure that can often be completed in approximately 30 minutes. This makes it a convenient option for individuals with busy schedules. You should also factor in that you’ll need a consultation prior to arranging your non-surgical nose reshaping treatment.
Minimal Recovery Time: Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, which may require extended downtime for healing, non-surgical rhinoplasty typically involves minimal recovery time. Patients can typically resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure.
Instant Results: The results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are instantly visible, allowing patients to enjoy their enhanced appearance almost immediately after the treatment.
Long-Lasting Effects: While non-surgical rhinoplasty is not permanent, the results can last for approximately 12 months. This duration provides individuals with a substantial period to enjoy their improved nasal aesthetics.
Versatile Application: Dermal filler, the key component used in non-surgical rhinoplasty, can be employed to reshape, define, conceal imperfections, and straighten the nose. This versatility makes it an effective solution for a wide range of nose-related concerns.
The procedure is reversible: Fillers used gradually break down over time. This means that if someone is unsure about permanent changes, they can opt for non-surgical rhinoplasty to test the waters. Additionally, if you don’t like the changes to your nose, you may be able to dissolve the filler at a separate appointment.
While non-surgical rhinoplasty can achieve impressive results, it may not be suitable for individuals seeking significant structural changes or the removal of tissues, which surgical rhinoplasty can provide.
Whether opting for the precision of surgical rhinoplasty or the convenience of non-surgical rhinoplasty, safety, and practitioner expertise should always be a priority in ensuring a successful outcome.
