Non-Surgical Nose Jobs: Cut-Free Correction
Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about that bump in your nose, but too scared to go under the knife to fix it? With the surge of injectables and fillers being used in cosmetic procedure in the last decade comes an ever-expanding list of ways they can be used. Injectables like are commonly thought of as wrinkle-diminishing, but they’re capable of so much more than that. The latest and greatest? Non-surgical, non-invasive rhinoplasty—otherwise known as a nose job.
If you think this sounds too good to be true, it gets even better. You can be in and out of this procedure in less than an hour, and then go straight to work or for a night out without anybody knowing. So how does this seemingly miraculous nose job work?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is ideal if you’re looking to smooth out bumps, bulges, or crookedness in your nose. (Unfortunately, it can’t be used to fix more serious problems, such as a deviated septum, or the actual size of the nose.) The procedure, pioneered in Los Angeles by Dr. Alexander Rivkin, is a simple one. It begins with numbing cream, which is applied to your nose; as this is a cut-free procedure, there is no anaesthetic required—in fact, not only can you remain fully awake during the “surgery,” but you can have your say on the end results as they happen.
Once your nose has been numbed, the filler is injected just under the skin’s surface. Where it goes depends on what type of correction you’re having made. After a few injections and a bit of moulding, you’re done—your nose is now smooth and shapely, with results that can last up to two years. No bruising, scarring, or long, painful healing time.
