Cosmetic treatments are growing in popularity in the UK, but it isn’t just women who are using them now. The number of men getting injectable filler treatments almost doubled between 2000 and 2017. Men are increasingly concerned about their appearance and more willing to take steps to boost their own self-esteem and confidence.

One area that men are particularly likely to be concerned about is the nose. Nose jobs are one of the most common cosmetic surgeries for men, but there are also some popular non surgical options that can achieve the same effects without the need for an operation.

What is a Non Surgical Nose Job?

Non surgical nose jobs have become a very popular choice for women, but growing numbers of men are also turning to these treatments in order to avoid rhinoplasty surgery. A non surgical nose job can achieve many of the same effects as surgery, but without the same risks or the need for a long recovery period.

A non surgical nose job uses dermal fillers to reshape the nose. The dermal fillers that we use at Dermadoc are made from a substance called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in our skin. We can inject the filler right where it is needed and sculpt it to create the desired effect. During a non surgical nose job, we might add filler around a prominent bump to make it look smoother or add some volume to one side of the nose to make it more symmetrical. The results can be as subtle or dramatic as you want and they should last for 12-18 months.

Non Surgical Nose Jobs for Men vs. Women

The basic techniques used in non surgical nose jobs are the same for men and women, but every treatment that we perform will be tailor made to the individual. Although it can be useful to look at celebrities and think about who you would like to emulate (Jude Law, Josh Duhamel and Ben Affleck have particularly popular noses), it’s important to remember that you are unique. We will discuss your needs in detail and help you to decide what you want to achieve with your non surgical nose job.

When we perform non surgical nose jobs on men, we’re often asked to correct lumps and bumps, or to make the nose more symmetrical. Issues like this are particularly common in men who play contact sports or who have had nose injuries in the past. Men are also more likely than women to ask for a larger nose, although some do still want to have a slimmer or smaller looking nose. We’ll take your preferences into account, but we’ll also help you to consider how the changes will fit in with the rest of your face and what other options you might want to consider.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your nose for any reason, then make an appointment at the Dermadoc clinic to discuss the non surgical treatment options with an expert.
