The 15 minute nose job
For many people, unhappy with their nose, the prospect of having surgery is dauntingly painful, expensive and high risk with numerous complications including black eyes, breathing difficulties and infection.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a non-surgical nose job, injection rhinoplasty, or the 15-minute nose job, can be a lower-risk, lower-cost alternative allowing patients to get straight back to their day to day life without any downtime compared to the surgical rhinoplasty or nose-job. For those who cant afford the expense or downtime associated with surgery, or for those who are simply afraid to actually have surgery, it can be quite a relief to hear that there is a safer, effective option available.
The non-surgical rhinoplasty involves reshaping, recontouring and modelling of the nasal framework without using surgery but by safely placing a dermal filler between the bone, the nose cartilage and the skin to correct unwanted deformities. The dermal filler used is hyaluronic acid; a substance that can be naturally found beneath our skin.
For many patients, we have been able to relieve a life time of worry and dislike of their nose and having their photo taken. Our most caring Dr Alexandra Day will always invite you to join us in our relaxed clinic to discuss all your concerns and really establish what you would like to achieve. Patients are always delighted to find the treatment is pain-free, only takes 15 minutes and allows them to have complete control of the design of their nose, and see the results immediately. Results are soft, natural and beautifully harmonised with all your facial features.
What can be achieved with a non-surgical rhinoplasty?

What are the advantages of a non-surgical rhinoplasty?

- Risks associated with surgery including, infection, severe bruising, bleeding, breathing difficulties significantly reduced.
What does the non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure involve?
Before the procedure:
Topical anaesthetic will be applied for 20 minutes prior the treatment for additional comfort
The procedure :
Dermal filler is injected in small amounts and in precise locations under the skin, so that there is total control over the shape and contours created by the procedure. The doctor will then massage the product to re-shape the nose. During the procedure, you are fully awake. You hold a mirror and you are in complete control of the procedures results
Post treatment :
You should avoid touching or applying make up on the treated area for 6 hours in order to prevent infection. Specific post treatment instructions will be given during your visit. The results are immediate and last from 12-18 months over which time the filler will naturally be broken down by the bodies own enzymes.
What is the dermal filler used?
We use only safe and highly tested dermal fillers based on man made hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is naturally found throughout the body as well as in most other living organisms. It has many functions, including giving the skin elasticity, volume and providing us with a youthful appearance. The gels we use at Chelsea and Fulham Dentist consist of non-animal, cross-linked, hyaluronic acid (HA) and are made in a laboratory. They contain no human or animal DNA and have the best safety profile of all the fillers currently on the market as it is the only type of filler that is reversible.
What is the recovery time?
There is very little to no down-time involved in the procedure. Most patients return to their normal, daily activities right after their visit. There is no significant swelling, bruising or pain. We advise sunglasses or heavy eyeglasses must be avoided for two weeks after the procedure. If you have a major event such as a wedding or photo shoot, we recommend you leave minimum 2 weeks before the event to have your treatment.
What is the cost of the treatment?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is 1/10th of the cost of surgical procedures and start from £250 including your consultation and follow up review appointments.

Having had the humps in my nose straightened, the asymmetry corrected and the tip of my nose lifted I feel so much more confident, I just wished Id done it sooner. Dr Alexandra was so gentle and understanding and I felt completely relaxed and trusting in her hands. Thank you to all the team for looking after me. I love my new nose!
My nose was broken in two places due to being a tomboy as a child (who knew.) It never bothered me until I reached my teenage years and I became incredibly self-conscious of my wonky nose. I considered having it fixed and initially decided to go ahead. The procedure would mean I was unable to work or go out for 3 weeks and after all that it may not actually work. After a lot of soul searching I decided to just stick with my wonky nose. When Alexandra came to work at Black Swan and spoke about a simple procedure to fix noses I was intrigued after a full assessment she said it wouldn’t be a problem. After being in the chair for about 5 minutes with a bit of filler placed at the top of my nose (layman’s version) my nose was at last perfect. I cannot believe such a simple procedure has made such a difference to my face and has increased my confidence so much. Thank you Alexandra.
