Non-Surgical Nose Job

Scottsdale & Phoenix, AZ


Also referred to as liquid rhinoplasty, a nonsurgical nose job uses artificial fillers to reshape the nose. This relatively new treatment has been gaining traction especially for patients who are not willing to have a surgical rhinoplasty. Most patients who have received this treatment at our clinic are happy with the extremely minimal downtime involved. It also creates immediate results as well as aesthetically enhances your facial profile. When done by skilled cosmetic surgeons, nonsurgical nose reshaping can be pleasantly transformative, even indistinguishable from classic rhinoplasty. This article tells you everything you need to know about nose jobs without surgery in Arizona.


The demand for nonsurgical nose filling has increased significantly over the last 2 years. Popular with both men and women, this purely aesthetic procedure aims to give patients a facial profile that they are happy with. Your plastic surgeon will inject small amounts of filler in order to straighten the nasal bridge or lift the tip of the nose. The technique used during this cosmetic procedure will vary depending on the patient’s condition, as well as their expectations. Our team uses only safe non surgical methods to make sure that we give our patients the best possible results within the confines of safety. Typically, the procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete and the results are evident for up to a year. Most of our patients notice that results last even longer after the second treatment. Because this procedure does not alter the anatomy or functioning of the nose, it leaves the option of surgical reshaping open to patients in the future.


  • Some of the key benefits of non surgical nose reshaping include:
  • Quick results – this procedure is also referred to as the ’15-minute nose job’ because it takes about this long to complete.
  •  Non surgical rhinoplasty is largely painless and is performed under a numbing cream as opposed to anesthesia. There’s no swelling or bruising associated with this procedure.
  • Because patients are conscious at the time of the procedure, they can monitor progress in the mirror and provide instant feedback to control the outcome.
  • Liquid rhinoplasty yields immediate, noticeable results.
  • This is a low-risk procedure with a lower likelihood of complications.
  • Liquid rhinoplasty is available at a fraction of the cost of a traditional rhinoplasty in Phoenix, AZ
  • This procedure is reversible. If you do not like what you see, your surgeon can dissolve the filler using an enzyme injection.


  • Patients who are looking for a more permanent outcome to their bumps and humps may view the temporary nature of this treatment as a drawback.
  • Artificial fillers used during non surgical reshaping may not sufficiently address all types of cosmetic concerns.
  • Nonsurgical nose jobs do not alleviate functional problems such as deviated septum and respiratory impediments.

Nonsurgical vs surgical rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty without surgery is common with patients who are not happy with the current appearance of their nose. This procedure can be used to correct bumps on the bridge of the nose, a drooping nose tip, as well as a crooked nose. Unlike a surgical rhinoplasty where plastic surgeons actually have to perform surgery on your nose, the process for this procedure is far simpler. Your doctor will start by applying a topical numbing cream to increase your comfort during the nose job. Once this is done, small amounts of a safe, reliable dermal filler are injected into the depressed parts of your nose. The surgeon will then carefully sculpt the filler in order to smooth out any imperfections, asymmetries or bumps on the patient’s nose. Compared to surgical nose reshaping, this cosmetic procedure entails lesser risk, quicker procedure time, and instant results.


What does liquid rhinoplasty entail?

Non-surgical nose reshaping entails using hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane Perlane to correct bumps and other cosmetic imperfections on the nose. Your surgeon will use a very small needle to inject tiny amounts of filler on depressed areas. This is then sculpted to achieve the patient’s desired appearance. Once the procedure is complete (in about 15 minutes) your cosmetic surgeon will provide precise instructions for aftercare.

What if you do not like the results?

Non surgical rhinoplasty is not permanent. If you are not happy with the results, you can wait it out a few months or have it reversed by your cosmetic surgeon.

How safe is nonsurgical rhinoplasty?

Cosmetic surgeons use biocompatible and biodegradable fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane Perlane that are not harmful to the body. These substances are produced in laboratories and delivered in the form of a sterile gel. Over time, they are broken down and removed naturally.

Are there any side effects?

In some cases, side effects such as tenderness, redness, bruising, and swelling may be evident after the procedure. However, these are not serious and usually resolve by themselves in a matter of days.

How long do results last?

Results of a liquid rhinoplasty are evident for about 12 months. However, with repeat treatments, they can last much longer (up to 18 months or even more).
