A 10-Minute Nose Job

A 10-Minute Nose JobMost of the statistics show that the number of people who are so unhappy about their nose that they would go to extreme lengths to fix it isn’t anywhere close to small. However, rhinoplasty can’t always be the option because, first and foremost, it is an expensive procedure that also requires plenty of recovery time. This is why another intervention has come to gain popularity: the nonsurgical reshaping of the nose with the help of fillers.

Basically, this procedure consists of injecting cosmetic filler that is already used for other areas of the face in certain points of the nose in order to alter its shape and make it better looking. It lasts about ten minutes and leaves no bruising or scarring because it requires no recovery time. Of course, it is not permanent either, since the filler is broken down and naturally eliminated by the body in about 12 to 18 months tops, but that is not seen as a setback by those who have already tried it.

Still, Nigel Mercer, president of the British Association for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, warns all those rushing to get the procedure that they should put it off for a while longer until further tests are carried out as to its safety. As it is now, those who agree to undertake it are nothing short of guinea pigs, he explains, because the long-term effects have not yet been determined.
