Everyone has at least one physical aspect that they dislike about themselves and let’s be honest, for many people there are several things they hate. Most people spend their lives trying to conceal, improve upon or even deflect attention away from their unwanted physical features. When it comes to the face, however, especially a prominent feature like the nose it can be very difficult to evade from others from seeing it. Nose jobs are one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the UK and typically people strive to avoid invasive surgery where possible. This article outlines all you need to know on non-surgical nose reshaping.
What is Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping?
A nose-job is very invasive surgery that leaves you with a severely bruised and swollen face that usually requires a mask to be worn for a week or so after the procedure. It can be very painful and can disrupt your professional and social life dramatically. Thankfully Dr Darren McKeown, a prestigious clinician in aesthetic medicine offers an, non-invasive alternative to nose surgery. Non-surgical nose reshaping takes advantage of a recent trend in rhinoplasty to rebuild as opposed to removing tissues when changing the shape of the nose. This procedure is not suitable for everyone as many people looking to change their nose require reduction, therefore surgery is unavoidable. This innovative treatment is ideal for people who are looking for subtle changes to the profile of the nose and who do not want to have extreme surgery.
What Does the Procedure Entail?
Non-surgical nose reshaping relies on a series of injections being applied to the nose that will build up certain areas. One of the most common requests for nose reshaping is someone who has a bump on the bridge of their nose that they want to be smoothed out. Instead of having surgery to shave down the bump, the filler builds up the gap below and above the bump which can either reduce or in many cases completely eliminate the bump. Some patients also request that filler be added to the tip of the nose to create a more upturned effect. Depending on the natural shape of the nose and the look that the patient requires, this cosmetic treatment can be a fantastic alternative to invasive surgery. It does work best for those who only require small changes their nose appearance.
Results of Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping

However for those who are suitable candidates for non-surgical nose reshaping you must fully understand the nature of the filler. Results will vary from person to person however it is common to require a “top-up” one year after the first treatment.
