A nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting fillers into the nose to alter its shape, the nostrils or bridge height done by a medical professional. Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most common fillers used in this procedure.
The actual procedure takes about 15 to 20 minutes but might be slightly longer if numbing cream is applied beforehand. The process is pretty painless, though some patients might feel a little discomfort for a short period afterward. Bruising is a possibility and swelling is likely. Unlike a surgical rhinoplasty, the results from this nonsurgical procedure are temporary, and last only as long as the fillers do, which can be anywhere from six to 12 months.
