4 Nose Flaws That Can Be Corrected Without Surgery

Non-surgical Liquid Rhinoplasty

When it comes to your face, your nose takes up prime real estate. In fact, it is likely the first feature on your face that you notice when you look in the mirror. If there’s something about your nose that bothers you, you may have even considered a rhinoplasty, better known as a nose job. Nose jobs are permanent, and not necessarily needed — so if you’re nervous about making a big commitment, another option you may want to consider is non-surgical nose reshaping. In fact, there are four common nose flaws that can be corrected without committing to surgery.

What is non-surgical nose reshaping?

Non-surgical nose reshaping is a temporary, non-surgical option to help correct certain asymmetries in the nose. Using various dermal fillers, nose reshaping can correct a host of flaws and bring you closer to the nose you desire. Dr. Hooman Khorasani performs this treatment in his New York City office — and the treatment only takes about 20 minutes. The results are also temporary, so you don’t have to worry about making a lifetime commitment.

Why choose non-surgical nose reshaping?

Did you know that surgical rhinoplasty is one of the most sought-after plastic surgeries — ranking in the top 10 — because of its widespread impact on your appearance? Still, the idea of going under the knife for a permanent change to the center of your face can be nerve-wracking. It also comes with a considerable amount of downtown, as well as the risks that are part of any surgery.

We offer a different approach to nose correction, artistically using dermal fillers to reshape the nose. Dr. Khorasani helps his patients obtain subtle, and not-so-subtle results, with this innovative and minimally invasive technique.

To give you an idea of the possibilities, here are four common nose flaws Dr. Khorasani can correct, without surgery.  

1. Reduce a bump on your nose

One of the main reasons patients come to Dr. Khorasani is to minimize bumps along the nose. While a rhinoplasty tackles the problem by surgically removing the bump, Dr. Khorasani can use dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid to provide a more symmetrical and straight look. These are similar to the fillers he uses to plump up lips and add restore volume to the face.

While it may seem counterintuitive to add volume to your nose when you’re trying to get rid of a prominent bump, the results will surprise you. By creating a straight line, the effect will actually make your nose look the same size or smaller — not bigger. This is because Dr. Khorasani is able to restore balance to your overall face.

2. Reshape the tip of your nose

Another way Dr. Khorasani can improve the shape of your nose is by adding dermal filler to the tip. If your nose tip dips down or is too short, he can use fillers to re-sculpt and shape your nose. In fact, he can de-emphasize a bulbous nose by creating better symmetry, and thereby making your nose more proportionate to the rest of your facial features.

3. Straighten your nose

If your nose is crooked, Dr. Khorasani can use fillers to offset the asymmetric angles and give your nose a straighter appearance. By filling in areas where shadows emphasize these angles, Dr. Khorasani can make your nose look more straight.

4.  Minimize scarring on your nose

If your nose has scarring from an accident or previous surgery, Dr. Khorasani can use dermal fillers to smooth out skin around a scar, or to fill in a scar, to reduce its appearance.

How long does non-surgical nose reshaping last?

The fillers Dr. Khorasani uses will vary depending on your goals. It is important to understand that the results are temporary, and how long they last is based on many factors- one of which is your own metabolism. He always starts with fillers that can be dissolved, if desired, so you can give your new look a test run. If you’re pleased with your new nose, he can use more permanent fillers for longer-lasting results.
