Frequently Asked Questions

Who is it for?

A nose job without surgery is an excellent option for people who wish to have a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure and who are looking for fast, satisfying results. Unfortunately, those with major nose deformities and those who are looking to significantly reduce the size of their nose are not candidates for this procedure. For these people, surgical intervention is necessary.

Why you should consider a non-surgical rhinoplasty?

  1. Non-surgical nose reshaping is far less invasive than surgical rhinoplasty
  2. This treatment does not require general anaesthetic
  3. Bruising is far less evident and there will not be the typical black eyes gained following surgery
  4. There’s no downtime
  5. It is far cheaper than surgery
  6. If you really do want to have a surgical procedure but are still unsure, a non-surgical nose reshaping treatment will let you see what your nose would look like before making a final decision
  7. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe procedure, but only when carried out by a skilled and experienced medical professional

The Procedure

To do the nose job, a fine instrument is used to place a small amount of soft tissue filler beneath the skin. Once injected, Dr Bong can then mold the substance into a more desirable nose for you, with only his fingers!

During the procedure you will have the opportunity to look at yourself in a hand-held mirror and have control over the results.

Blunt-tipped instrument

Safety of our patients is very important to us. Dr Bong is one of the very few doctors in Scotland who uses a blunt-tipped instrument for this procedure. This is an advanced technique and requires high level of precision and a steady hand. It is also the safest way of injecting soft tissue filler because this instrument is designed to avoid accidental injection of filler into a blood vessel. See the next question for more information about the advantages of using this instrument.

Sharp tip needles vs blunt-tipped cannula

While traditionally soft tissue fillers have always been injected using sharp tip needles, a new alternative to using needles is using blunt tipped cannulas. Although there is a role for both methods of injection, the cannula does offer some excellent benefits to patients.

  1. Sharp needles can pierce veins and arteries beneath the skin. Since blunt cannulas simply push aside any arteries and veins encountered beneath the skin, there is a reduced risk of bleeding and bruising.
  2. Sharp tip needles use a very thin, short, sharp needle to inject dermal fillers. When using needles, multiple injection points are required, which can increase the risk of hitting a vein. If a vein is hit with a needle, there is a higher chance of bruising after the procedure.
  3. Sharp tip needles may also result in trauma to the skin, causing swelling.

Advantages of blunt-tipped cannulas

Cannulas have a hollow bore, just like needles, allowing the filler to pass through into the tissue. However, instead of a sharp tip like needles, cannulas have a rounded, blunt end. It is a bit like a long needle, but the tip is blunt. The process involves numbing the skin with ice, then injecting a small amount of local anesthetic beneath the skin with a tiny needle. When the skin is numb, a needle is used to pierce the skin, and then the cannula is threaded into the puncture site, sliding along the natural planes of tissue, providing access to a large area for filler placement.

  1. Less Pain During Treatment – Being injected multiple times with sharp needles can be painful, but while it may sound a bit uncomfortable to have a cannula beneath your skin, there is very little discomfort. Patients often note that they experience a strange “pushing and tugging” feeling, but there is very little pain. Fewer actual pokes with needles also reduces the amount of pain, even when multiple areas of the face are being treated.
  2. Decreased Risk of Bleeding and Bruising – Sharp needles can pierce veins and arteries beneath the skin. Since blunt cannulas simply push aside any arteries and veins encountered beneath the skin, there’s a reduced risk of bleeding and bruising.
  3. A Safer Option – When using needles for filler injections, one of the scariest potential complications is accidentally injecting filler into an artery, which can cause tissue death. In extremely rare cases, blindness has occurred. Cannulas do not pierce arteries, so they offer a much safer option for patients.
  4. Minimal Downtime – Since needle injected fillers can cause swelling and bruising after the procedure, they do often have some social downtime. Since the cannula injection method cuts down on swelling and bruising, there is minimal downtime post-procedure.
  5. Precision – With blunt-tipped cannulas, fillers can be injected more accurately, reducing the amount of filler needed to achieve the desired results.
  6. Greater Flexibility – A much larger surface area can be treated with just a single injection site when using the cannula method, making it possible to get more done with fewer injection points.

After the Procedure

The results with dermal fillers are instant. After the treatment the treated area may be slightly red and/or slightly swollen. However, you can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment.

How long will the effect last?

The results typically last 9-12 months although the exact length of time will depend on the structure of your skin and other factors such as lifestyle, age and the degree of perfection demanded by the individual. Additional touch up treatments can be performed at any time after the initial treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Although uncommon, possible adverse effects may include:

There may be some mild redness in the treated area which usually resolves after a few hours. Noticeable swelling is uncommon. Occasionally bruising can occur which if significant may last 5-7 days. During this time make-up can be applied.

15-minute nose job avoids the risks of surgery and has no effect on nasal breathing since it involves only injection into the skin. The procedure is much more precise than surgical rhinoplasty, so detailed adjustments to nasal contour are possible. The procedure does not cause nosebleeds or persistent swelling.

Is the procedure painful?

Not at all. Dr Bong prides himself in his innovative approach to advanced non-surgical facial treatments, and is well known for his unique methods of achieving beautiful yet natural results with minimal pain and downtime.

90% of our patients do not require any form of anaesthetic agent at all and they describe this procedure as less uncomfortable than getting a vaccine or having blood sample taken from your arm . To provide further relief and alleviate as much pain as possible, we use only premium, industry-leading soft tissue fillers which contain pre-mixed anaesthetic agent.

It is dangerous in the wrong hands

All injections come with risks – swelling, bruising etc. But the nose is a particularly delicate area of the face. We believe that patients need to understand the safety principles of filler injections, and have a healthy fear of filler injections in the nose.

In terms of what is dangerous, the nose ranks up there as the most dangerous. That is because the blood supply to the nose is quite weak, particularly in noses that have already undergone a previous surgery. If you inject too much filler into the tip or nostril, you can overrun the blood supply to the skin and deprive it of vital oxygen. There can also be a risk of accidental injection of filler into a blood vessel.

This treatment is not a procedure you want to shop around for a cheaper deal

How much time is needed for this treatment and can I go on with my day following the treatment?

Typically the treatment only takes 15 minutes to complete. Most people feel comfortable going back to their normal activities immediately following their appointment. Mineral make-up may be applied immediately after the treatment.

What can I expect from my consultation and will I have treatment the same day as my consultation?

You are required to have a face-to-face consultation prior to having this treatment. In the consultation Dr Bong will examine your nose and face in general. Dr Bong will then offer you a treatment plan and quote you a price. He will also discuss in detail the advantages and limitations of this treatment and the alternatives.
