A non-surgical rhinoplasty utilises a filler material to alter the shape and position of the nose.
The principal advantage of the technique is that it avoids a surgical procedure, however by definition the treatment is not permanent. A non-surgical nose job can be effectively used to correct these nasal appearances: a nose with a small hump, a nose that has a depression along the bridge (termed saddle nose deformity), nasal collapse from previous trauma, droopy nasal tip, beak-shaped nasal bridge (termed Polly beak). A non-surgical nose job can also be used to improve certain features of a patient’s nose who is not yet ready for a surgical rhinoplasty and to refine or augment the appearance of a person’s nose who has previously undergone rhinoplasty.

At The Centre, you can expect to see relatively ‘instant results’ with our filler treatments. There will be minor swelling after filler treatment that for most patients resolves overnight, more rarely there can be mild swelling for 5-days (in approximately 5%). There is a small possibility, <2% of a minor bruise, this will resolve over a few days. We use the latest in technology to enhance recovery such as ‘no-needle” cannula techniques that enhance recovery. For most patients, the final results of nasal fillers will be evident approximately 5-days after the swelling subsides. With our techniques (cannula based technique, application of filler at deeper levels) and filler choice will last 12 – 18months, although results may vary from patient-to-patient.
At The Centre, we specialise in natural-looking results. We believe in a natural augmentation of the nose area. Our aestheticians have pioneered research in the area of facial beauty and this has been published in the mainstream media and multiple TV channels. We have also developed the application of the Phi Golden Ratio (used in many of the most famous Renaissance paintings of Leonardo Da Vinci) to the human face and we have multiple trained specialists at The Centre to apply the principles of this facial balance and beautification technique. At The Centre we have treated many celebrities and A-listers with these techniques to enhance natural beauty, a term we describe as beautification of the face, enhancing the natural Phi Golden Ratio lines.
Of key importance with filler rejuvenation is avoiding excessive filler use as this no longer looks natural or beautiful. The key application of filler in specific areas of the face differs depending on each individual’s facial characteristics. The application of nose filler is different in masculine and feminine faces. In women, it is focused along the Phi Golden Ratio lines and a softer feminine shape. In men, it is focused along a straighter nose profile. If you have already had treatment that has been excessive it may be necessary to dissolve the existing filler or wait for the filler to resolve. At The Centre we specialise in natural-looking results.
We use a combination of treatments to minimise discomfort, these include the use of a powerful numbing local anaesthetic cream that is specially made us. We use a state-of-the-art cannula (no-needle) technique to minimise discomfort.
We use fillers that have incorporated anaesthetic into the injectable fillers to increase patient comfort.
At The Centre, we use additional numbing and vibration devises that use the Nobel Prize-winning research on ‘The Gate Control Theory of Pain” to minimise discomfort.
At The Centre, we take the above measures to ensure most patients only experience minor discomfort.
Studies on the safety of fillers have reported filler treatments as relatively safe with few side effects when completed by trained specialists. Recorded adverse events are usually minor including temporary injection site redness for less than three days. Patients may occasionally report temporary symptoms of redness, swelling, discomfort, lumps-bumpy changes, bruising, itching or change in colour. Infection is very rare however it is important that the treatment is completed in a CQC (Care Quality Commission) registered site and sterile precautions when having filler treatments. At The Centre, all treatments are completed in our specialist Facial Centre on Harley Street. Serious side effects such as damage to the skin (termed Necrosis) or damage to vision have very rarely been reported. Our staff has pioneered the teaching of other doctors to avoid these serious issues in both National and International Conferences since 2012. Fillers are currently lacking from regulation, which remains a controversy in the UK. Precautions can be taken with competent practitioners to avoid these serious complications.
We use a combination of treatments to focus on a natural rejuvenation that is both long-lasting and safe. Over the last 5-years, fillers have become more and more popular as both the product has reached new levels of quality and safety and our techniques and skills at using them have matured with experience. Our team has been using non-surgical treatments for patients for over ten years. At The Centre, we believe that it is important to avoid potential issues and there are certain products that are associated with high risk, including non-HA products, as in some patients this can result in serious long-term issues. At The Centre, we specialise in facial treatments and only advocate ‘Gold-Standard products with an established record of safety. Some patients may have characteristics of their nose that are unsuited to filler treatment, and these patients are better suited to a surgical Rhinoplasty correction.
