Non Surgical Rhinoplasty
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping, can be perfect for people with minor nose irregularities, looking to smooth out minor lumps and bumps with minimal downtime and no invasive surgery.
Bumps or protrusions cannot be removed with dermal fillers, rather, hollows can be filled in to straighten the nose. For example, if there is a prominent nasal bridge (hook nose), then the area above and below the bend can be filled to straighten the nose. Another example of non-surgical nose shaping is when a nose is deviated to one side, the concave side can be filler to make it appear straighter.
Nasal tip elevation is often desired by patients. This can be achieved by injecting the tip of the nose, as well as the by injecting filler in the base of the collumellar (the underside of the nose separating the nostrils) to lower it, which makes the tip appear elevated.
Subtle adjustments can make a big difference to the overall appearance of your nose. Dr Targett has the medical qualifications and extensive experience in state of the art injection techniques required to achieve optimal aesthetic results.

Why Have Non Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is one of the most desired cosmetic procedures, but many patients are frightened by the potential complications and the risk of unfavorable cosmetic results. Non surgical rhinoplasty is a safe, non-invasive alternative to traditional rhinoplasty. Sometimes it is called the 15 minute nose job as the treatment involves only dermal filler injections to reshape nose.
This is an excellent, affordable option for people who want to change the shape of their nose but do not want surgery. Results are instant; there is no excessive downtime, no general anaesthetic and no prolonged healing.
Who is suitable to have this treatment?
Non Surgical Rhinoplasty is suitable for anyone who has :
- Slightly crooked nose
- Small nose that needs building up
- Hook shaped noses that would like straightening
- A mild to moderate bump on the bridge of the nose
- A mild to moderate drooping of nasal tip
- A nose that needs refinement after surgical rhinoplasty
- Noses that would like more height, definition and a nose tip
What Does the Non Surgical Rhinoplasty Procedure Involve?
Prior the treatment :
Topical anaesthetic will be applied for 20-30 minutes prior the treatment for additional comfort
The procedure :
Dermal filler is injected in small amounts and in precise locations into your skin so that there is total control over the shape and contours created by the procedure. The doctor will then massage the product to re-shape the nose. During the procedure, you are fully awake. You hold a mirror and you are in complete control of the procedure’s results
Post treatment :
You should avoid touching or applying make up on the treated area for 6 hours in order to prevent infection. Specific post treatment instructions will be given during your visit by our Clinic Coordinator. The results are immediate and last from 6-12 months. As the results are relatively temporary, adjustments can be made as your face changes over time to ensure you always retain a natural look
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the types of dermal fillers that can be used in the nose?
Generally, a shorter lasting and reversible filler can be used to ‘test’ to see if the treatment leads to an aesthetic improvement. The longevity of these fillers are about 6 months in the nose, and are usually made from hyaluronic acid. If one is happy with the improvement, the second option is usually to try a longer lasting filler like Radiesse. Radiesse can also be used as a first line filler for the nose, as it has a similar feel to the nose and has greater lift and longevity than the hyaluronic acid fillers. Radiesse is not reversible however, and tends to last from 12 to 18 months. The average volume required of Radiesse for a nose is approximately 0.3 to 0.4mL.
What are the risks of non-surgical rhinoplasty?
One of the rare, but important risks to consider when having non-surgical rhinoplasty is the risk of compromising the blood supply. It is possible for filler to be injected directly into the arteries that supply the nose, which causes an immediately blanching of the skin and can lead to death of the skin and scarring. Another possibility is when the filler causes compression of the local blood supply (the space in the nose becomes too tight), which can also lead to similar problems.
The risks increase significantly if one has had surgery on the nose in the past, as this alters the normal blood supply and anatomy of the nose, making it more likely for dermal fillers obstruct the blood supply.
To avoid the above risk, we mostly use blunt cannulae rather than needles, as cannulae are less likely to directly enter the blood vessels than a sharp needle. Our practitioners’ experience also allows them to have a better feel of what is happening during the injection due to feedback from the amount of pressure imparted on the syringe plunger.
What type of dermal filler is used to re-shape nose?
The most common dermal Filler used for nose area is Hyaluronic acid.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Is one of nature’s most versatile and fascinating substances. It is found throughout the body as well as in most other living organisms. It has many functions, from giving the skin elasticity and providing our skin with volume to giving it a youthful appearance. They contain no human or animal DNA and have the best safety profile of all the fillers currently on the market as it is the only type of filler that is reversible.
What is the recovery time?
There is very little to no down-time involved in the procedure. In fact, most patients return to their normal, daily activities right after their visit. There is no significant swelling, bruising or pain. However, sunglasses or heavy eyeglasses must be avoided for two weeks after the procedure
How long does the result last?
The results generally last from 6-12 months. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you. Our treatment provides a long-lasting but not permanent result leaving you the option of refining your treatment in tune with changing taste and fashion
What is the aftercare for dermal fillers?
First 24 hours Avoid excessive alcohol, and aerobic exercise after the procedure. If you get any bruising, apply ice and arnica cream, and only use mineral based makeup. Depending on bruising, take arnica tablets for 1 to 5 days afterwards. Gently massage the treated areas at home over a clean cloth. If you are prone to cold sores and you have been treated in that area, ask your GP to prescribe zovirax tablets to be taken just before the treatment, and for a few days after.
24-48 hours Do not apply any cosmetics to the treated area for the first 48 hours. Especially avoid moisturisers or products that contain AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids/Glycolics), BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acids) or Retinoids.
Avoid taking Aspirin/Disprin, anti-inflammatory and pharmaceutical blood thinners.
Avoid sunbeds and saunas, and excessive sweating and sun exposure.
Gently massage the treated areas with clean fingers smoothing away any remaining Dermal Filler llumps from the procedure.
First 14 days Avoid having facials, waxing, Gycolic or AHA peels, liquid Nitrogen or Laser treatments on the treatment area for the next 14 days. Laser resurfacing should only be be done after the dermal filler has disappeared from the skin.
After 14 days Continue to apply Results Active Protect SPF 30+ sunscreen every day to avoid further sun damage and aging of your skin from the Australian sun.
We recommend you to return to Results Laser Clinic within two to four weeks after treatment, so we can assess your satisfaction with the outcome.
How soon will I see results?
The improvement from fillers is immediate whereas anti-wrinkle injections usually show results in 1 to 2 days.
