I hate my nose, but I’m terrified of having cosmetic surgery – what can I do?

Nez_d'hommeRhinoplasty – or a nose job, to you and me – may be one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures but it does come at a price, not just financially but also psychologically and even physically.

The prospect of having your nose broken and rebuilt – whether under general anaesthetic or not – is too much for many people to handle. But if you really want to change the shape of your nose, is there any other option?

Non-surgical nose job

Thankfully, the answer to that is a resounding “yes”. Here at Dr Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic in Mayfair, top London cosmetic doctor Joney De Souza performs a procedure known as the “non-surgical nose job”, using dermal fillers to reshape the nose into a more desirable shape.

Using dermal fillers in this way is a highly specialised technique, and it is vital that you see an advanced practitioner like Dr Joney if you want to be certain of a good result.

Can it do everything a surgical nose job can do?

One thing that can’t be done with dermal fillers, of course, is to make the nose smaller. However, for the vast majority of people the real problem is not so much the size of the nose, but the shape, and judicious use of fillers can straighten out even the most hooked of noses.

The procedure is also not permanent, with top-ups needed every six to twelve months in order to maintain the results. However, for many people the temporary nature of the non-surgical nose job is actually an advantage – whereas with a traditional rhinoplasty, if you are unhappy with the results you either have to live with it or undergo further surgery, with a non-surgical procedure the effects will wear off after a few months, or can even be dissolved.
