An asymmetry in facial features can lower the self-esteem of many people. Since the nose is a central facial feature, it’s very common to feel unhappy with its size or shape. Seeking perfection in this part has led to rhinoplasty being quite popular. Yet, its demand has been waning with the “nose filler”, also known as a non-surgical nose job London, being on the rise.
A Non-Surgical Nose Job Overview
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive treatment that can change the nose’s shape and contour. It uses dermal filler (usually hyaluronic acid) to:
- smoothen out lines and bumps in the nose,
- increase its volume,
- uplift the tip of the nose to make it more prominent,
- straighten the bridge of the nose.
This nose reshaping treatment is also known as a 15-minute nose job because you can see the results immediately. As an affordable procedure, non-surgical nose job London is preferred by many people to change the shape of their noses and create greater facial harmony.
How Much Does a Non-Surgical Nose Job London Costs?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a non-invasive procedure which is why it isn’t as expensive as a traditional nose job. Since this treatment aims to make minor changes to the shape of the nose, it doesn’t take that long. To avoid the hassle of travelling and save cost, many people prefer getting it in London.
They can find many cosmetic surgery clinics that offer this procedure at an affordable price. By staying close to home, they also don’t have to worry about the additional expenses of flight tickets, hotel accommodation, private transfer, and meals.
Who Can Have a Non-Surgical Nose Job London and Why?
Non-surgical nose job treatments have become more popular among people. Since it’s a 15-minute nose job and a safe non-invasive alternative to rhinoplasty surgery, many patients choose this procedure to change the shape of their nose. Plastic surgeons can fix the nose tip, bridge, or sides through this nose reshaping treatment.
The non-surgical nose job London is most suitable for those who’re looking to enlarge the size of their nose, smooth out small bumps, or make the nose tip crisper and raised. Besides, if the patient is thinking of getting a permanent rhinoplasty surgery, a liquid nose job is usually a good way to find out how the nose will look after the surgery.
It’s important to stress that the purpose of non-surgical nose jobs is to take care of the aesthetics of the face. If you have breathing problems or have to undergo major reconstruction of the structure of the nose, then surgical rhinoplasty is the one that can help you.

What Could Go Wrong After a Non-Surgical Nose Job London?
The nose is a sensitive area and there are many blood vessels around it. Therefore, a non-surgical nose job is a more complicated aesthetics treatment compared to other injectable fillers. If the dermal filler blocks a blood vessel, the possible complications can be:
- necrosis (tissue death)
- vision loss
- vascular complications
Although the risk of developing a complication from a non-surgical rhinoplasty is quite low, sometimes people complain about the failure of their non-surgical rhinoplasty. The problem arises because of unskilled surgeons. They might overfill the bumps or target areas in the nose, giving it a misshaped and unsightly look. An unlicensed practitioner may be completely unaware of the anatomy of the nose and can end up causing nerve damage along with tissue death, among other complications.
Regardless of everything, you should always consult your doctor about the possible risks that are associated with the treatment. As a person’s skin type and possible conditions can also influence the results of the non-surgical nose job London. The risk and complications can also vary.
