Lunchtime Nose Job: Everything You Ought to Know

Posted on June 4, 2021

The times when surgery is the only option for changing nose appearance has passed. Nowadays, people have the choice to get a fast non-surgical procedure also known as the lunchtime nose job.

Yes, you guessed it right. It’s called a lunchtime nose job because it can change your nose’s appearance within lunchtime. That’s how quick the procedure is.

On the other hand for a more permanent change, surgical rhinoplasty remains popular and effective. It can produce stunning results in the hands of a skilled rhinoplasty surgeon.

On the upside, your nose’s issues can be corrected without surgery. This means no extreme pain and lower recovery time.

What can a lunchtime nose job do for me?

A lunchtime nose job can solve the following issues and problems:

  • A small nose that needs more volume to fit the dimensions of the face
  • Mild to moderate bridges or bumps in the nose
  • A crooked or asymmetrical nose
  • A hooked shaped nose
  • A nose requiring some finishing touches after a surgical treatment
  • A nose requiring more definition
  • A nose needing a more balanced tip
  • A nose that was injured and requires mild reconstruction

What happens during a lunchtime nose job?

After your initial consultation with one of the medical practitioners at Harley Street Filler Specialists London, we’ll determine if a lunchtime nose job is fit for you.

During treatment day, topical anaesthetic will be applied first. In particular, it will be applied on the treatment points of your nose. This is done so you feel minimal pain. At Harley Street Filler Specialists London, your comfort is one of our priorities.

Next, we’ll use a cannula instead of a traditional needle to administer the dermal filler.
Cannulas are better than traditional needles because they are blunt-ended. They reduce the risk of bruising as well.

Once the cannula is inserted, small quantities of the chosen dermal filler will be administered.

After the dermal filler is in place, the doctor may mould or shape it using their fingers. This is done to achieve a smooth and natural look. The whole process should take no longer than 30 minutes (except numbing time).

Am I suitable for a lunchtime nose job?

At Harley Street Filler Specialists London, we recognise that although surgery is highly effective and permanent, dermal fillers offer benefits that it does not.

For starters, a lunchtime nose job is quicker, requires lower recovery time, brings less pain, and is more affordable.

However, before we can administer this treatment, we must conduct a consultation with you.
The consultation will determine if you are physically fit and suitable for non-surgical rhinoplasty.

We also need to rule out any medical conditions and possible contraindications. Plus, we have to carefully examine your facial features for any supplemental treatment needed.

How long is recovery time for a lunchtime nose job?

The downtime involved with a non-surgical nose job is significantly less than traditional rhinoplasty.

You can return to your daily activities immediately. However, you need to take care of yourself by following an aftercare routine.

  • Do not touch or rub the affected area for at least 24 hours.
  • Do not sleep on the treated area for 3 days.
  • Avoid hot baths, saunas, and excessive exercise that can cause heating of the skin for 4 days.
  • Apply mineral makeup after 24 hours if you want to conceal any possible bruising.
  • Minimise bruising by keeping the area cool.
  • Don’t drink an excessive amount of alcohol, tea or coffee the night before or after your treatment.

Please take note that you may experience slight bruising and swelling after the lunchtime nose job. However, this should subside in a day or so.

The area might also feel tender, so please take things easy for a couple of days.

Being careful during the days after your treatment will optimise the results.

How long do the results last from a non-invasive nose job?

The results vary from patient to patient. As nasal fillers are thick and heavy, they tend to metabolise slowly. Therefore, some patients can enjoy the results for up to 18 months.

If you take care of your skin, eat well, avoid UV rays, and don’t smoke, you should experience results longer than someone who doesn’t have a healthy lifestyle.

Dermal fillers have come a long way. The instant results of a lunchtime nose job can be astounding.

You can return to work immediately and won’t have any bandages & stitches. This means that no one will be able to tell that you had your nose done.

A lunchtime nose job is a godsend for those who want to keep their cosmetic work discreet. Your friends, family, and colleagues won’t notice drastic changes because the results look natural.
