Nose Filler Sarasota

Nose Filler Sarasota | Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Sarasota

Sitting in the center of the face, the nose plays a major role in overall facial aesthetics. This is especially true when considering the facial profile where the shape of the nose becomes clearer. Before the past decade or so, people wanting to change the shape of their noses only had the option of surgery. However, for minor enhancements, dermal fillers now present a non-surgical option. Sarasota Surgical Arts provides the best nose filler Sarasota offers.

A Nose Job Without Surgery: Understanding Nose Filler

Nose filler—commonly referred to as a non-surgical rhinoplasty—uses injections of dermal fillers to enhance the shape and overall appearance of the nose. It is most often used to straighten the bridge of the nose and disguise a dorsal hump. It can also achieve other aesthetic enhancements depending on patient goals and anatomy.

As a completely non-surgical procedure, nose filler is a less invasive option when compared to traditional rhinoplasty. Some people may still require surgery to provide permanent results or address structural issues such as a deviated septum that nose filler cannot adequately treat.


Candidates for a non-surgical rhinoplasty in Sarasota come from a wide range of backgrounds. Considering the procedure does not require general anesthesia, this allows more people to safely undergo nose filler injections. The best candidates for nose filler will:

  • Be in generally good health
  • Be above the age of 18
  • Not have major structural issues that a non-surgical option cannot address
  • Have no history of major allergic reactions
  • Not have major health conditions that may impact their treatment (bleeding disorders, heart disease, etc.)
  • Have realistic expectations

If you have received filler injections without issue before, you likely are a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty. Your provider will evaluate your candidacy and individual risk profile during a consultation appointment.


A non-surgical nose job offers a variety of benefits to patients in Sarasota. Since every patient has different goals, expectations, and anatomy, the exact benefits a patient experiences will vary. Some of the common benefits associated with liquid rhinoplasty include:

  • Create a straighter nose bridge
  • Address a droopy nose tip
  • Treat slight crookedness
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Allows potential surgical patients to try on their results before committing
  • Nearly immediate results
  • Little to no downtime
  • Minimal side effects
  • Reversible (if using hyaluronic acid fillers)
  • Only topical anesthetics used
  • Low risk procedure
  • Unlikely to cause an allergic reaction
  • Quick procedure that takes under an hour
  • Can last a year or more
  • Costs less than surgery

Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Deciding between the temporary, non-surgical nose job and permanent, surgical options can be difficult. Both are highly effective and can treat patients wanting to enhance their nose. Ultimately, the best way to determine the best option is to consult with a qualified provider such as Dr. Sessa. The table below details some of the major differences between the two treatments to help you get an idea of which may best suit your needs.

Before & After Nose Filler Injections


Before undergoing nose filler injections in Sarasota, you will meet with Dr. Sessa or other provider for a consultation. At this appointment, they will discuss what you hope to achieve with the procedure, your medical history, and relevant parts of your lifestyle. Your provider may also perform a physical examination of the nose. This can help them determine if structural deformities exist that surgery may better treat.

If you and your provider both believe a non-surgical rhinoplasty is a good fit based on your goals, they will discuss the procedure in more detail. They will also explain the various filler options available. In some cases, they may proceed with the injections the same day.


To start your non-surgical rhinoplasty, your provider will disinfect the nose. From there, they may apply a topical anesthetic such as a numbing cream. This usually sits for about ten minutes. You can opt to undergo the procedure without topical anesthetics. However, unless you have had nose filler before, it is generally recommended.

Once properly numbed, your provider will inject the chosen filler into the nose. Depending on what you want to achieve, there may be multiple injection sites. The most common injection sites are on the bridge of the nose and the tip of the nose. The injections usually take less than twenty minutes.

Aftercare & Results

For the most part, you can return to your normal, daily activities. Though, you may need to make some minor adjustments to promote the best healing and results. It will take about two weeks for the filler to fully settle. Some of the aftercare instructions your provider may give you can include:

  • Sleep on your back for at least a few days
  • Avoid blood thinning medications and supplements during the healing period
  • Do not drink alcohol or smoke for several days
  • Avoid hot environments where sweating may occur
  • Do not partake in strenuous exercise or activities for two to three days
  • Massage, if instructed
  • Avoid unnecessarily touching
  • Cease use of abrasive skincare while healing

As far as results, any side effects tend to take two weeks or less to subside. Additionally, the filler also needs time to settle into position. While this may only take a few days to a week, your provider will likely advise that you wait two weeks before evaluating your final results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Nose Filler Dangerous?

Non-surgical nose jobs are generally considered safe. The injections carry risks similar to other filler procedures. However, if performed by an unqualified provider or on a patient who is not a good candidate, this can increase the risk. When seeking out a trained and qualified provider like those at Sarasota Surgical Arts, the procedure carries little risk.

Will It Correct A Deviated Septum?

No, non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot correct a deviated septum. While some techniques can address a minor deviation, they are not permanent and not that effective. Since a deviated septum can cause breathing problems, surgery is the best treatment as it is permanent and provides better relief. 

Is A Liquid Nose Job Permanent?

Nose filler is not permanent. The body will eventually break down the filler. However, dermal fillers do tend to last longer in the nose. Patients usually see their results last at least a year. Some studies showing that hyaluronic acid fillers have lasted two years in the nose.

What Fillers Are Used For A Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most frequently used type of dermal filler for the nose. This is because they are reversible and considered the safest fillers on the market. Occasionally, a semi-permanent filler like Radiesse may be used, but this is only in specific situations. Moreover, the type of hyaluronic acid filler used will vary, but some of the common ones used include:
