Nonsurgical rhinoplasty has many great features compared with traditional surgical rhinoplasty. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is less drastic, but can have just as dramatic results, lasting between six and 18 months, and best of all, downtime is minimal after your procedure. Your nose can be reshaped in less than an hour with long-lasting results.
Considerations you and your cosmetic dermatologist need to make are:
- What sort of dermal filler is best suited to your nose shape and needs?
- Do you want your rhinoplasty to be temporary, or do you just want to try it out?
- Are you allergic or sensitive to any ingredients in fillers?
- Do you have any special risks?
Types of dermal filler used in rhinoplasty
There are several types of dermal filler used in rhinoplasty, some which last longer than others. The nature of each ingredient varies, but modern fillers tend to improve your skin over time.
Dermal filler injections for nonsurgical rhinoplasty are used with locally applied anaesthetic so you don’t feel a thing. Usually the procedure is less than half an hour, but this will depend on how many injections are required. A small nose adjustment may take just a few minutes, while a larger sculpting procedure may take 30 minutes or longer.
While many patients only require one nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure, some will need to have further treatments until we have optimal results, and with temporary fillers, you’ll need to plan to have filler injections regularly to maintain your new nose shape. How regularly will be explained by your cosmetic dermatologist at our Melbourne clinic.

The dermal filler is injected into the nose in various areas with a very fine needle, using just drops of filler solution. The type and amount of dermal filler will depend on your needs.
Once your nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure is finished, you can leave and go back to work or home. There is likely to be some minor bruising immediately after treatment or later on that day, with some nose tenderness for a few days.
Preparing for your nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure
Having a good experience usually means having a very experienced, skilled practitioner who has an eye for a beautiful nose. Once your nonsurgical rhinoplasty is done, however, there are some steps you can take to get the most out of your skin during healing.
Key tips for when you get home from your nonsurgical rhinoplasty (Melbourne clinic)
- Don’t put any pressure on your nose for about five days.
- Sleep on your back.
- Stay away from the sun, chemical peels and any laser procedures for about a week. Inflammation can be detrimental to the healing process.
