Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a “non-surgical nose job,” has gained immense popularity in recent years as a non-invasive alternative to traditional surgical procedures.

This minimally invasive treatment involves the injection of dermal fillers to reshape and enhance the appearance of the nose.

While non-surgical rhinoplasty offers quick results and minimal downtime, one question on the minds of those considering the procedure is: How long does the transformation last?

In this blog, we will be exploring how long non-surgical rhinoplasty lasts, the factors that affect this and much more.


What is Non-surgical Rhinoplasty?

Before jumping into the longevity of non-surgical rhinoplasty, it’s crucial to understand the basics of the procedure. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, which involves permanent alterations to the nasal structure, non-surgical rhinoplasty is a temporary solution.

The key components in this cosmetic procedure are dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based products, which provide a plumping effect to reshape the nose.


What is the Longevity of Non-surgical Rhinoplasty?

The duration of non-surgical rhinoplasty results varies from person to person. On average, the effects typically last anywhere from 12 to 24 months.

However, factors such as the type of filler used, the individual’s metabolism, and the specific area of injection can influence how long the treatment lasts.

The choice of filler significantly impacts the longevity of non-surgical rhinoplasty. Hyaluronic acid fillers, commonly used in these procedures, are recognised for their safety and effectiveness.

While nose fillers are temporary, they generally provide longer-lasting results compared to other types. The gradual breakdown of hyaluronic acid in the body leads to a natural fading of the treatment results over time.


How Does Your Metabolism Affect Your Results?

Individual metabolic rates play a crucial role in determining how quickly the body breaks down the injected filler. If you have a fast metabolism, you may process the filler quicker, therefore shortening the duration of the treatment.

However, if you have a slower metabolism, you might enjoy prolonged results. Genetics, age, and overall health can also influence how the body responds to the filler, all playing a part in the longevity of non-surgical rhinoplasty results.


Maintenance Appointments May be Required

To extend the effects of non-surgical rhinoplasty, some individuals opt for maintenance sessions or touch-ups. These frequent injections help maintain the desired appearance, and many find that subsequent treatments may require smaller amounts of filler.

Regular communication with your practitioner is crucial in assessing the progression of the procedure and determining the appropriate timing for touch-up sessions.


The Natural Fading Process

As the filler gradually disperses, the nose returns to its original state. One of the advantages of non-surgical rhinoplasty is the gradual and subtle nature of the fading process.

This allows individuals to assess whether they wish to maintain the enhancement or explore other options without the abrupt changes associated with surgical procedures. However, if you would like your results to last, then a surgical procedure is the solution for you.


Factors Influencing Longevity

Several external factors can influence the duration of non-surgical rhinoplasty results. Sun exposure, smoking, and certain medications may speed up the breakdown of fillers.

Conversely, a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, can contribute to prolonged effects. Adhering to post-treatment care guidelines provided by the practitioner is crucial to ensuring optimal results.


Consultations Are a Must

Before undergoing non-surgical rhinoplasty, comprehensive consultation with a qualified and experienced practitioner is crucial. During this consultation, the practitioner assesses the individual’s concerns, discusses expectations, and develops a tailored treatment plan.

By understanding each person’s unique anatomy and aesthetic goals, the practitioner can recommend the most suitable filler type and quantity to achieve the desired results.


Potential Risks and Considerations

While non-surgical rhinoplasty is generally considered safe, you must be aware of potential risks and complications. Temporary side effects such as bruising, swelling and redness at the injection site are common but typically subside within a few days.

In rare cases, more severe complications may occur, which is why you must choose a qualified practitioner and maintain open communication throughout the process.


Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Right For You?

Deciding whether non-surgical rhinoplasty is right for you involves careful consideration of your aesthetic goals, medical history, and preferences. Non-surgical rhinoplasty involves the use of injectable dermal fillers to reshape and enhance the nose without surgery.

It is a popular option for those seeking subtle adjustments, such as smoothing out bumps or improving symmetry.

One of the key advantages of non-surgical rhinoplasty is its non-invasive nature, resulting in minimal downtime and fewer risks compared to traditional surgery. However, it’s crucial to understand that the effects are temporary.

Ultimately, your decision should align with your expectations, preferences, and the level of permanence you desire in reshaping your nose.

I visited Dr Yusra’s clinic for non surgical rhinoplasty. I was so impressed with the whole experience from start to finish. Dr Yusra and her team were extremely professional, listening to my concerns and what I hoped to achieve from the procedure. I’d like to give a special mention to Lucy who looked after me pre and post treatment, she was so friendly, knowledgeable and made me feel completely at ease. I look forward to my next visit.

September 2023: I’ve been going to Dr Yusra’s clinic for the last nine months and can honestly say the change in my skin is so apparent that people on Teams calls at work tell me I’m glowing. Dr Lauren has been doing my skin treatments since May with Co2 laser (following secret pro with Olivia) and 3 rounds of subcision with skin boosters. Dr Lauren takes time to explain the science behind the treatments before we do them so I have a realistic idea of the healing and results process. Dr Yusra is also always on hand for any queries too and as soon as you enter the Liverpool clinic, you’re given such a warm and friendly greeting by the team. Despite it being far from me, it is without a doubt worth the drive to get high quality results. Update: I've had two sessions of SecretPro with Olivia and can see a huge difference in my skin so far. Olivia is so professional, patient and took the time to go through the process before and after treatment to ensure I was comfortable. Couldn't recommend Olivia and the team at Dr Yusra's enough! Having been to Dr Yusra’s clinic before, I’ve always found them to have a high standard of care. I’ve recently been in contact with Olivia to help me with the next stage of my skin journey and have been so happy with the helpful advice and assistance she’s given me. I decided to start treatment at Dr Yusra’s clinic because the treatments being offered are different to those I’ve seen elsewhere with really impressive results on other patients. I trust I’m in good hands and excited to continue this journey to finally sorting out my skin!!

I had 3 areas of Botox as well as masseter Botox with Dr Emily and she is so lovely, listens to any queries you have (even if you think it’s a silly question) and puts you at ease through your procedure. I have a lot of pain in my jaw when eating and grinding my teeth in my sleep, Dr Emily was able to talk me through the procedure for helping this and since having masseter Botox I haven’t had pain while eating and there’s no pain when I wake up. Would definite recommend the clinic and Dr Emily.

I have had treatments from Dr Yusra and team over the past few years and despite having to travel quite a distance for this clinic it is 10000% worth the journey. They are careful and expert in the treatments they deliver, and I always feel in safe hands. I would like to thank Dr Emily especially, I have not visited a different clinician or clinic since first seeing her for my treatments and I am always very happy with the results. As well as being talented she is just lovely and a pleasure to visit.
