Rhinoplasty for Men: Make a No-commitment Change to Your Nose

By Dr. Charles J. Galanis

Sniffing around for a new nose without having to go under the knife? The needle may be your best shot at attaining natural-looking results without the cost, commitment, and cutting.

If you’re a male considering undergoing a nose job or “nose reshaping” but unsure how your results will look or worried about cost, scarring, or potential side effects, then an innovative, non-surgical rhinoplasty may be the perfect solution, but there are limitations. Nevertheless, non-surgical rhinoplasty or “liquid rhinoplasty” may be a great way to test drive a nose job before committing to a more traditional, permanent procedure.

What is a Non-surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a noninvasive, in-office cosmetic procedure that uses dermal fillers (Juvéderm or Restalyne) to modify the shape of the nose temporarily and painlessly. With results lasting up to 6 months or longer, this noninvasive approach to a traditional rhinoplasty can deliver desired results without the commitment, cutting, and cost.

 However, non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot make a nose smaller but instead balance asymmetries, add volume, improve/enhance the tip of the nose, visually camouflage a bump on the bridge of the nose, or slightly straighten a crooked nose. It also cannot improve the functionality of the nose or correct impairments, such as breathing, sleep apnea, or a deviated septum. Non-surgical rhinoplasties are great for temporarily correcting minor imperfections for an aesthetically appealing appearance. Still, they are not recommended for more extreme, permanent modifications.

Patients can expect a non-surgical rhinoplasty to achieve the following:

  • · Makes the nose more proportioned to the rest of facial features for a more defined, balanced look
  • · Doesn’t make the nose smaller or narrower – just smoother and symmetrical
  • · Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers add volume to help smooth bumps and balance asymmetries
  • · Fills indentations, such as a deep nasal bridge
  • · Corrects a concave nose
  • · Lifts/adds structure to the tip of the nose, giving the illusion of a narrower nose
  • · Delivers natural-looking, subtle results in less than an hour

Remember, if patients seek to improve their nose’s function and/or want to significantly reduce its size. Then, a traditional nose job will be a better option to meet their nose goals.

Benefits of a Non-surgical Rhinoplasty

A non-surgical nose job is performed in-office using a numbing cream to minimize discomfort. It is usually completed in less than an hour. Patients can enjoy the following:

  • · No downtime (expect minor swelling and/or bruising at injection sites that should subside within a few hours or days)
  • · Immediate results
  • · No scarring
  • · No severe side effects, such as infections or hematoma
  • · Long-lasting, temporary results that last up to six months or longer
  • · Boost in confidence


If you’re a male looking to upgrade the appearance of your nose with just a few minor tweaks from a syringe, consider the no-commitment, non-surgical alternative to traditional rhinoplasty. While results are immediate, yet temporary, a non-surgical nose job is a great way to “try on” a nose job without making any commitments. You can experience what a traditional rhinoplasty will look like if you decide to take the plunge. 

It’s essential to remember that although non-surgical rhinoplasties offer convenience, affordability, flexibility, and aesthetic enhancement, there are limitations. The noninvasive option won’t work if you want to better your breathing or correct a deviated septum. Furthermore, non-surgical rhinoplasties cannot remove tissue to make the nose smaller but add volume and “even out” imbalances.
