If you told your cosmetic doctor you wanted a smaller or straighter nose a few years ago, your only option would have been to undergo rhinoplasty – a plastic surgery procedure that can leave you 50 shades of black and blue for at least 2 weeks and out of pocket between $8,000 – $20,000 (or more)! Not to mention, you may need to wait up to a year to see the final results of your nose surgery operation. Yikes! Fast-forward to 2018, however, and all you need to do is book an appointment at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine during your lunch hour. You’ll be walking out with instant results. No surgery necessary!
Dubbed the “non-surgical nose job”, cosmetic doctors like Dr Targett have mastered the technique of using natural product (term forbidden by TGA) (injectable fillers) to alter and reshape the nose – providing similar results to a traditional “nose job” (rhinoplasty) without invasive surgery.
This treatment has gained popularity in recent years and is being used to lift the nasal tip, correct minor bumps or curves on the nose and it can even make the nose appear smaller and more symmetrical. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it gets even better! As mentioned, there are minimal risks associated with a non-surgical nose job compared to rhinoplasty and you can expect to return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment. Some patients may experience swelling and/or bruising post-treatment, however, risks of this happening are reduced even further at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine thanks to a handy little device called AccuVein. LED Light Therapy can also be used in conjunction to stimulate new collagen production, reduce swelling or bruising and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Winning!
The non-surgical nose job itself is a generally pain-free treatment that’s performed in approximately 30 minutes using local anaesthetic cream. After your personalised facial assessment with Dr Targett is done and the area feels numb to you, the filler will be injected into the particular area/s of concern. For example, the bridge of the nose can be lifted to make the nose visibly straighter from a side profile and thinner front on. Results are instant, super natural-looking and will typically last anywhere from three months to a year. Price for one treatment ranges between $700 and $1,300.
This type of treatment has gone viral largely due to its instant results, affordability and the low-risk associated. It’s also a great way for people concerned with the appearance of their nose to “try before you buy” rhinoplasty so to speak, as natural product (term forbidden by TGA) will naturally dissolve in the body over time or can be dissolved by a cosmetic injector if the patient wishes to reverse the procedure. In saying this, it’s important to understand that there are still nose corrections that simply require surgery and it’s best to speak to a cosmetic doctor or surgeon about all your options and the risks associated. For some, rhinoplasty can be used to fix breathing problems, whereas the non-surgical nose job cannot. Non-surgical nose jobs also cannot alter the size of the nose.
