Can a non-surgical nosejob be done on a wide nose?
A non-surgical nose job uses dermal filler to the nose and is a treatment for only very experienced practitioners to perform.
Often, dermal filler is injected on the bridge of the nose to add volume to correct any dorsal humps, for a straighter, slightly higher nose bridge. Unfortunately, without surgery, the width of the nose cannot be shrunk. However, dermal fillers add volume, and can give an optical illusion of a smaller nose bridge by adding more height. This would obviously have to be assessed in a consultation with one of our practitioners who perform this procedure, to see if it would be a suitable option for you.
The nose consists of a high vascular structure, which supplies blood to the eyes. This is what considers a non-surgical nose job to be a higher risk area and must only be performed by a very experienced practitioner. Unfortunately, we cannot see through the skin, and if filler is injected into one of these arteries, it could potentially cause blindness. Sometimes, a cannula can be used for this area. A cannula is a long, blunt tip needle, which can reduce the risk of the filler piercing though an artery. This may aid as a safety precaution.
At Cityskin, only Dr. Erik Koppert at Hawthorn, Melbourne, performs this treatment due to the level of experience of who should perform this procedure. He uses a minimum of 1mL of filler for this treatment.
