The non-surgical nose job is also known as a non-invasive rhinoplasty, liquid nose job or non-surgical nose reshaping.
Many women and men are unhappy with the shape of their noses, but surgery is an expensive option involving lengthy recovery and often lacking the subtlety to make fine aesthetic improvements.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty could offer a better alternative for some patients (though it is important to be realistic about expectations). For the right patient, it is safer, faster and pain-free.
How does non-surgical nose job work?
The doctor uses advanced, long-lasting dermal fillers. These are delivered as a series of injections into the nose, where they build up volume to disguise or fill out deformities in the bridge of the nose (i.e. humps/bumps) and rarely the tip to help with profile, creating a straighter nose shape.
What can non-surgical nose job help with?
- Humps and bumps, depressions and dips
- Creating a more pleasing shape
It is important to be realistic about what this procedure can achieve
- Cannot make the nose smaller or change its shape
- Greater risks of bruising due to thin tissues
Non-Surgical Nose Job Costs:
The non-invasive rhinoplasty using dermal fillers is a bespoke procedure carried out by Dr Ross Perry at our London clinics. Prices vary according to the quantity of filler required for the optimum result.
The price will therefore be confirmed at consultation. As an indication, the expected cost of a procedure is outlined below:
|Non-surgical nose job using advanced dermal fillers||£400-500|
A full dermal facial filler consultation for the non-surgical nose job costs £50. Please ask for an appointment with Dr Ross Perry.
Prices for treatments carried out in the same appointment as the consultation will include the £50 consultation fee (note: same day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge).

Non-Surgical Nose Job FAQs
How long does it take?
Non-surgical nose reshaping takes a matter of minutes as it is very quick to do.
Sometimes we will arrange a second session for further injections to create the best result. This allows any swelling to settle and ensures a measured transition.
This does not include the consultation, which is a really important part of the process.
Does it hurt?
Not at all, the experience is pain free as the injectable gel contains a fast-working local anaesthetic.
How about recovery
Recovery is very quick. You can expect some initial swelling and may see the injection marks, but this does not last long.
What product do you use?
At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, our doctors only use advanced and long-lasting Juvederm® hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers.
Is this the same as a liquid rhinoplasty?
Essentially yes. ‘Rhinoplasty’ is the medical term for a nose job. Common ways to describe the non-surgical version are ‘injectable’, ‘liquid’, ‘fillers’, ‘non-invasive’ or ‘non-surgical’.
How long will results last?
Results will vary depending on the individual. We advise around 15-18 months for the full result and up to 2 years before the fillers have completely dissipated.
Can the procedure be replenished?
Yes – we can tweak the results at any point. When the fillers start to wear off, we can carry out another treatment for you.
How quickly will I see results?
Results in terms of the new nose shape are literally immediate – you’ll see the difference in a mirror straightaway.
It will take 24-48 hours for initial swelling to dissipate, revealing the finished result.
Is there anything I need to avoid after the procedure?
We recommend not doing strenuous exercise, going in a spa/sauna or drinking alcohol for the first 24-48 hours.
Is it as good as surgery?
There are limitations of this procedure. It cannot reduce the nose nor address breathing problems. However, where the issue is cosmetic, dermal fillers can be used to disguise humps and dips in the nose profile for a straighter looking nose.
As dermal fillers are used, the result is not permanent (unlike surgery). However, the procedure can be repeated when the fillers wear off.
Why not surgery?
Nose job surgery is a drastic procedure. Sometimes, it is the best option (for example, if there are breathing problems or the nose has been broken in a certain way). However, aesthetic concerns – even quite significant ones – can be very effectively treating using dermal fillers.
Downsides of rhinoplasty surgery
- Expensive – £5k or more
- Highly invasive, often involving breaking the bone or removing cartilage
- Requires hospital stay
- Wearing a splint/bandages/dressings for at least a week
- Bruising and swelling around the eyes/cheeks/nose
- Usually 10-14 days off work
- General anaesthetic required (entailing a series of risks/complications)
- Often requires breaking bone/removing cartilage
- Long recovery – up to a year for full results
- Higher risk of infection
For the right patient – where the focus is literally to smooth out humps and bumps – a non-surgical nose job is a much easier solution which can fit into a lunchtime rather than using significant amounts of annual leave.
It allows for more subtle adjustments and the focus is on the end result.
