Thinking of a nose job without going under the knife? Liquid rhinoplasty can help one get the desired results! Nose is a prominent part of the face and adds beauty to the facial aesthetics. There is no definite shape that can be considered ideal for all because other facial features also play a role in determining the ideal nose shape for a person.


Surgical rhinoplasty commonly referred to as nose job is a popular procedure among most individuals who want extensive changes in the appearance of their nose. This approach focuses to provide the desired nose appearance to the patients according to their complete facial structure. It is also a solution for medical reasons like birth defects and breathing difficulties faced by people after a traumatic injury or illness. This treatment corrects deviated septum problem and helps one to have restful sleep and exercise without any trouble.

Traditionally, nose jobs involved surgery to restructure or reframe the imperfect nose features. Although, it has been one of the most selected aesthetic procedures many people are frightened by the potential complications and risks of unexpected results after invasive rhinoplasty.

Thankfully, non-surgical rhinoplasty came as a safe, more affordable alternative to surgical rhinoplasty. It is also referred to as a 15-minute nose job and has no downtime, provides instant results. There is no surgical scarring involved, no need for general anesthesia, and no lengthy healing. One can avail of the benefits of Non-surgical Rhinoplasty at Rakshaa Skin Clinic in Delhi.


Non-surgical rhinoplasty involves the use of dermal fillers (especially hyaluronic acid), hence it is also known as a liquid nose job or liquid rhinoplasty. This can temporarily alter or correct the flaws in nose structure. To maintain the results one can repeat the treatment.

Purpose of non-surgical rhinoplasty

It helps avoid the surgical procedure in patients who are not ready for it or have been unsatisfied with the result of previously undergone surgical rhinoplasty (i.e. minor imperfections). The non-surgical approach is often used by people who wish to make smaller, more discrete modifications to the nose area. Following are some of the reasons why people opt for non-surgical rhinoplasty:

  • To change nose shape and appearance
  • To make the nose tip more prominent or lift the (mild to moderate) droopy nasal tips
  • To build up a nasal bridge or lift a shallow bridge of the nose
  • To straighten the hook-shaped noses
  • To correct or balance out a dorsal nose hump
  • To add symmetry and volume to the nose
  • To treat unevenness in individuals with very thin skin and provide an improved height and definition to the nose

The overall result of using nose filler is an aesthetically pleasing, well-contoured nose that helps beautify the face.


1. Initial consultation
People who are considering non-surgical rhinoplasty must make an appointment with an experienced doctor who holds expertise in non-surgical rhinoplasty as well as in-depth knowledge of the underlying anatomy of the nose. Dr. Rakesh Jangra, an expert dermatologist in Delhi at Rakshaa Skin Clinic is a trained and experienced aesthetic injector. During the initial consultation, the dermatologist will explain what the procedure entails and what to expect from the treatment. A discussion is also made between the patient and doctor regarding the areas of concern to be addressed and the medical history of the patient, so as to design the best treatment plan suitable for the patient.

2. Preparation for the treatment
The patient is made to lay down with face tilted up and a topical anesthetic is applied over the nose for 20-30 minutes before the nose filler is administered. This is done to make the patient feel comfortable throughout the treatment. It is not a painful treatment as such but some people have low pain tolerance level. So, topical anesthetic is helpful. The areas to be treated are marked. Dr. Jangra makes sure that the nose job is done in a sterile environment to reduce the chances of infection.

3. Procedure
Nose filler is injected in small amounts into the soft tissues of the nose with precision using a thin needle. Depending upon the treatment area to be covered, a series of dermal filler injections may be required. At this point, the patient may feel slight pressure or pinching sensation as the syringe filled with filler is injected. The doctor massages the area wherein the filler has been administered to mold the nose into the sought-after shape. During the treatment, the results are under the full control of the doctor as well as the patient who can see the changes with the help of a mirror. The overall procedure can finish within about half an hour and the patient can leave the clinic right after the treatment to continue with his/her daily routine.

4. Result
The patient can experience the desired results immediately after the treatment and enjoy the effects of dermal fillers for 6 to 12 months or even longer to a maximum of 2 years. It is normal to have some minor swelling, redness, or bruising after the procedure which usually subsides within a few days.


Specific post-treatment instructions given by the skin doctor in Delhi at Rakshaa Skin Clinic must be followed by the patients. These include:
  • Apply an ice pack or cold compresses on the treated area to minimize any discomfort after the treatment.
  • Do not touch, scratch, pick, or rub the nose skin and avoid putting makeup or any cosmetics over the treated area at least for 48 hours after the procedure to prevent the risk of infection. Only the cosmetic products that are approved by the dermatologist must be used.
  • Avoid hot baths, saunas, steams, tanning beds, or vigorous exercise at least 24 hours post-treatment.
  • Do not wear sunglasses or heavy eyeglasses that sit on the nose at least for two weeks after the procedure.
  • Revisit the doctor after two weeks to check for the visible optimal results and if there is a need for a re-balancing or top-up session.


Dermal filler is a natural or synthetic material (a kind of soft tissue) that is used as a quick injectable for cosmetic purposes like treating scars, wrinkles, or other skin depressions. When dermal fillers are injected into the areas of the nose, they can immediately lift the skin in areas that require additional support. They form a scaffold for the skin epidermal layers when administered into the underlying skin tissues, thereby providing an attractive appearance.


Most commonly, hyaluronic acid and calcium-based microsphere (calcium hydroxylapatite) fillers are used for reshaping the nose. Hyaluronic acid is the most versatile, naturally occurring substance that can hydrate the skin and provide the required volume and elasticity to the skin, thereby giving a youthful, glowing appearance. Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) filler is an injectable implant composed of CaHA microspheres suspended in a carboxymethylcellulose gel carrier. It acts as a skin scaffold underneath the skin surface and a new collagen growth inducer.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an unsuitable or ineffective treatment for:
  • Reduction of the nose tip
  • Correction of the severe asymmetrical nose
  • Reduction of the overall size of the nose
  • Correction of a deviated nasal septum
  • Reduction of large nasal humps
  • Rectification of breathing issues
The preparation involves no drinking of alcohol for at least 2-3 days before the treatment. The patient must keep the body well-hydrated and come for treatment after having a night of restful sleep. A calm and relaxed mind and body are important before the procedure. It is also advised that the patient avoids intake of blood thinner medications or anti-inflammatory drugs at least 1 week before the procedure to prevent the risk of bleeding or bruising at the time of the treatment.

If the hyaluronic acid filler is used as a nose filler and its effect are not satisfactory for the patient, the results can be reversed by injecting a hyaluronidase enzyme which naturally occurs in the body and is capable of breaking down hyaluronic acid. This counteracting treatment can be done within 10 minutes and full visible results can be achieved after 24 hours of its administration.
