As a focal feature of the face, the nose plays a vital role in facial proportions and perceived beauty. A surgical nose job can result in significant swelling for several months and potential side effects such as scarring and loosened nose cartilage.
However, a misshapen nose or a nose needing more definition can be treated simply and quickly without an expensive nose job operation. Improving the shape or appearance of your nose or facial symmetry is achieved through non-surgical rhinoplasty, often termed the ’15 minute nose job’. If you would like to find out more about this amazing procedure as well as other treatments that we offer, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly and professional team in London and Buckinghamshire.

Nose-reshaping, medically termed as non-surgical rhinoplasty, is a specialist area for many of our medical practitioners. It is a safe and non-invasive alternative to a surgical rhinoplasty operation with instant results and without the need to endure months of swelling and bruising as a result of having.
We only use the safest, most effective FDA-approved, naturally biodegradable nose dermal fillers at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic. These are clear hyaluronic acid gels which closely mimic the natural hyaluronic acid in our skin.
Small amounts of facial filler are injected just beneath the surface of the skin in precise locations to change the nasal shape or straighten the nose. Filler can even be inserted in the nose tip for an upturned appearance. Your medical practitioner will then massage the area treated to re-shape the nose.
A non-surgical nose job procedure using hyaluronic acid filler injections can treat a number of misshapen nose concerns as follows:
You should be able to spot an immediate difference to the shape of your nose.
Dermal fillers are not permanent and will break down over time (approximately 9-12 months depending on the area treated is realistic), so further treatment may be required to maintain your desired appearance.
We always recommend a subtle approach to create a natural looking reshaped nose. You can always build on the effect with subsequent top up treatments, which will be tailored at every visit so that the desired nose shape is achieved in a soft and subtle way. Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
Millions of dermal filler treatments have been performed worldwide and are extremely safe and effective when injected properly, resulting in the most natural of differences.

Nose reshaping treatment usually takes approximately 30 minutes. There is little or no downtime and you can resume normal activities right away.
There is no need for allergy testing because the fillers contain hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in your skin anyway and is used in other medical treatments. If there is a little light swelling, you can easily camouflage it with makeup, though should avoid doing so or touching the treated area for six hours to avoid infection.
Many people find their procedure at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic more comfortable than expected, and most dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic. Our medical practitioners are highly skilled and precise; you should merely feel a light sting on your skin during the injection procedure.
