About Nonsurgical Nose Job
In the past, the only way to correct the appearance of your nose was with a surgical rhinoplasty. Now, however, you may be able to sculpt your nose with injectable dermal fillers for quicker results through a minimally invasive procedure. The same dermal fillers used to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face can now be used to correct the shape of your nose by making it look straighter, masking a bump, or filling in an indentation. Known as a nonsurgical nose job or liquid rhinoplasty, plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Kasden offers nose shaping with Juvéderm injectable fillers at his practice in Southlake, TX. If you are interested in nonsurgical rhinoplasty with dermal fillers to sculpt your nose and balance the proportions of your profile, schedule a consultation at the plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D.

Ideal Candidates for Nonsurgical Nose Job
A nonsurgical nose job may allow you to avoid the time, risk, and expense of nose surgery. A nonsurgical nose job uses dermal fillers to improve many cosmetic problems, including adding height to your nose, reducing the appearance of a nasal hump or bump, making a crooked nose appear straight, and increasing the projection of the nasal tip. Dermal fillers may also help to narrow the tip of your nose or smooth minor depressions and irregularities. Since a nonsurgical rhinoplasty uses dermal fillers, your results will be temporary. You may consider a nonsurgical nose job if you want to preview possible results before committing to nose surgery (rhinoplasty) or to look great for a specific event like a wedding.
Procedure Technique for Nonsurgical Nose Job
Before your injections, Dr. Kasden will listen to your needs and goals so he can create your personalized treatment plan. Dr. Kasden uses the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers for nonsurgical nose shaping and he will choose the best formula(s) to fit your needs. Since a nonsurgical nose job is a minimally invasive procedure, it can be performed in our office. Depending on the depth of the injections and your comfort level, a local anesthesia may be applied to your nose to numb the area. Based on your goals, Dr. Kasden will inject the dermal filler into the needed areas of your nose. Once he is done, a cold compress will be applied to your nose to reduce swelling.
What to Expect from your Nonsurgical Nose Job
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is considered an outpatient procedure, which means you are free to return to your daily activities immediately after treatment. Once the procedure is complete, you can expect minor redness, tenderness, or swelling. These symptoms are temporary and usually dissipate within 1 – 2 days and you should be able to see visible improvements to your nose. Although fillers can create a balanced look that enhances your natural beauty, routine injections are required to maintain results. During your consultation, Dr. Kasden will discuss how often you should schedule appointments based on the Juvéderm formula used during your treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions about Nonsurgical Nose Job
How much does a nonsurgical nose job cost?
The cost of a nonsurgical rhinoplasty will vary based on your goals and the amount of filler used. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kasden will listen to your concerns and goals before creating your unique treatment plan. After this, he can estimate your costs and discuss payment options.
What fillers can be used for a nonsurgical nose job?
The fillers Dr. Kasden uses for nonsurgical nose jobs are from the Juvéderm family of fillers, which have a hyaluronic acid-based formula. These are soft and can last about one year. Some of the formulas, Voluma and Volbella, are also commonly used to add volume to the cheeks and lips so they are ideal for shaping the nose.
Is it safe to use dermal fillers in my nose?
While most dermal fillers are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to improve wrinkles and add facial volume, they are not currently approved for nasal shaping. This is why it's important to select an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Kasden who understands how to safely perform a nonsurgical nose job with dermal fillers. Be open with him about your medical history and current medications to avoid complications and side effects.
How long does a nonsurgical nose job last?
The longevity of your results will be dependent on the type of fillers used and your unique biology. During your consultation, Dr. Kasden will discuss which fillers he is using and how long he estimates your results will last. Based on this, he will make a recommendation on when you should schedule your next appointment to maintain your results.
When will my results be visible?
Although some results can be seen almost immediately, optimal results will occur after 2 – 4 weeks. After the procedure, there is some minor swelling and redness that may take a few days to disappear. These symptoms can be eased with a cold compress and over-the-counter medication.
