Is it possible to undergo a non-surgical Nose Job to Reduce Nose Size?

One reason people choose to undergo rhinoplasty (nose job), is to reduce the size of their nose, in order to improve facial balance. But while some people are eager to get a nose job, they don’t’ want to go the surgical route. But is it possible to undergo a non-surgical nose job to reduce nose size? Let’s take a look at the facts.

What is a non-surgical nose job?
A non-surgical nose job is a procedure that involves using soft tissue fillers to shape and contour the nose. The fillers used are typically those derived from hyaluronic acid, such as Juvederm and Restylane. The procedure is beneficial for patients that need to add volume in specific areas, and improve symmetry. However, fillers are a temporary solution, and the procedure has to be repeated in order to maintain the results.

Can a non-surgical nose job reduce nose size?
While a non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot reduce the size of the nose, the procedure can be done to make the nose appear smaller. The fillers can be injected from the base to the tip of the nose to create a smoother, straighter line, to give the illusion of a smaller nose.

A non-surgical nose job is more suitable for someone with a small bump or unevenness that needs correction. It is not recommended for people who have a big problem with their nose.

If you are considering a nose job to make your nose smaller, consult a board certified plastic surgeon that performs both surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty.
