Bump On Your Nose? Could A Non Surgical Nose Job Be The Answer?
A bump in the nose (also known as a dorsal hump) is one of the most common reasons people opt for rhinoplasty. But could a non surgical nose job give you the smooth, straight nose you want without going under the knife?
In previous decades, the only solution for a bump on your nose was surgery. You could have the bump chiselled away or you could put up with it. Now, thanks to the huge advancements in aesthetics and the development of dermal fillers, a non surgical nose job gives you the opportunity to change the look of your nose without any cutting, slicing, chiselling or stitching!
Why Do People Have A Bump In Their Nose?
For some people, the bump on their nose is down to genetics. You might have always had a bump as a child or you might have developed one as your nose took its shape through adolescence.
For others, a bump in the nose can occur due to a trauma or injury. A broken nose can lead to the nose healing with a dorsal hump – or in some cases- a bump can even develop as a result of surgical rhinoplasty!
Is A Nose Bump Really A Problem?
So you’ve got a bumpy nose – does it matter? From a health perspective, a bump in your nose is not a problem. It doesn’t affect your ability to breathe and there’s no medical reason for treatment.
But what about non-medical problems? Your nose is the most prominent part of your face. Back in early Europe, having a bumpy “Roman” nose signified beauty and nobility, but if you’re embarrassed or uncomfortable with the appearance of your nose it can have a negative impact on your life.
Do you avoid photo opportunities because of the way your nose looks? Do you spend ages contouring, to try to reduce the bump in your nose? Is the bump on your nose having an impact on your self-confidence, social life or mental health? If so, then it could be time to do something about it.
But What Can You Do About It?
If you’re looking to improve a bump on your nose you’ve got two options: surgery or a non surgical nose job.
The Problem With Surgical Rhinoplasty
Surgery can certainly remove the bump in your nose. But it’s a pretty drastic solution.
Surgical rhinoplasty is an invasive surgical procedure. First, you’ll be put to sleep using a general anaesthetic. Then the surgeon will cut open your nose and chisel away at the bone to remove the hump.
Following the surgery, you’ll need medications to help with the pain and you’ll likely have bruising, swelling and black eyes while your body heals. The full recovery time is several months and most people need to take the first two weeks off work.
While surgical rhinoplasty can offer you a permanent solution, it doesn’t always go so smoothly. Some people experience unwanted consequences such as permanent numbness, difficulty breathing or scarring.
How Non Surgical Nose Jobs Work
Thankfully, due to the advances in non surgical procedures people now have an alternative option. A non surgical nose job can help reduce the visibility of a dorsal hump – giving you a straight nose and more confidence in your appearance.
But how does it work?
A non surgical nose job uses dermal fillers – similar to those used in lip fillers – to contour and shape your nose. When strategically placed these fillers can be used to hide a bump in the nose and give you a smooth, aesthetically pleasing profile without going under the knife.
What To Expect During A Non Surgical Nose Job Procedure
A non surgical nose job is considered a minimally invasive procedure.
During the procedure, your aesthetic doctor will apply a local anaesthetic to the areas in which they are going to insert the filler. Some fillers, such as the ones we use here at Elite Aesthetics, actually contain a local anaesthetic too. This helps to make your treatment more comfortable.
The anaesthetics will help to reduce any pain, but you will feel some pinching as the needle is inserted into your skin. As the filler is injected you’ll feel a strong pressure sensation.
A non surgical nose job for a bump in the nose usually takes around 15 minutes to complete. There’s no need for a general anaesthetic and you won’t have to take any time off work to recover. The results usually last around 18 months, making it a great and long lasting solution without going under the knife.
What To Look For In An Aesthetic Doctor
A non surgical nose job is a safe and effective treatment when it’s completed by a professional aesthetic doctor. But as with all aesthetic procedures, it can go wrong if the person performing the procedure is not qualified or experienced.
You should choose your aesthetic doctor carefully. Look for someone who is fully trained and has been practising for some time – so that they’ve built up the knowledge needed to be able to make your non surgical nose bump reduction a success.
There’s more to non surgical rhinoplasty than just injecting filler. Your aesthetic doctor needs to have the strategic knowledge that allows a bump on the nose to be resolved using fillers alone. They need to be skilled at carrying out the actual procedure, carefully injecting the filler into all the right places to give you a great result. And they need professional training so that they know what to avoid and how to keep you safe.
