In the past, if you weren’t happy with the shape of your nose, you would have to opt for painful surgery where the bones where broken and re-situated. Nowadays, the emphasis is on non-surgical treatments and one doctor has come up with an alternative to the nose job.
Dr Simon Ourian is well known in the US as the go-to cosmetic specialist to the stars. Based in Los Angeles, he is credited with creating Kylie Jenner’s famous pouting lips.
Kylie has come out publicly in an interview with the New York Times and named Dr Ourian as the best:
“I still do Juvéderm for my lips. I go to Dr. Ourian in Beverly Hills. He’s the best, and he’s super natural about it. I was going to somebody before, and it was just looking crazy.”
She also has some advice for anyone who wants to try fillers:
“I would recommend that anyone who gets it done go for a filler that lasts only two to four months. It’s annoying to keep going back, but you have the option of stopping it.”
Dr Ourian has a host of other Hollywood starlets on his patient list including UK model Cara Delevingne, many of the Housewives of Beverly Hills, Sofia Vergara and of course, the Kardashians.
Dr Ourian has his own clinic in uptown Beverly Hills called Epione, where he offers a number of non-surgical treatments. These include the famous Kylie Jenner lip filler, non-surgical face-lifts using fillers, chin enhancements, jaw definition and non-surgical liposuction.
His latest treatment on offer is the non-surgical nose job. The way the treatment works is that fillers are placed at strategic points along the bridge of the nose until the desired effect is achieved.
The non-surgical nose job can be used to correct a number of problems:
- Reducing bums and humps
- Lifting the tips of the nose
- Filling in dents in the sides
- Repairing injuries
- Reshaping the noses
- Reducing the size or adding volume
- Concealing nasal deformities or congenital defects
- Reshaping noses to copy celebrities, models or sports stars
- Enhancing flat nasal bridges
- Repairing failed surgical rhinoplasties
The price varies from $1,500 to $3,000 (£1,000 to £2,000) – depending on the product used. Restylane is the cheapest but only lasts six months whereas Voluma lasts two years or more but is the most expensive. The procedure lasts around 18 months, as the fillers will naturally dissolve back into the body.
And the treatment doesn’t take long either, only around 5 to 10 minutes at most.
“This treatment is becoming increasingly popular will people who just want a subtle change and don’t want to go into surgery,” says Dr Ourian.
The treatment is not painful but a tad uncomfortable and Dr Ourian says that if the results are not liked then unlike surgery, there are options:
“I prefer this strategy because it’s far more direct,” says Dr. Ourian. “Surgery is very permanent. With this if the result is not as desired I can easily dissolve the filler, reversing the treatment.”
As with all procedures there are risks involved and the non-surgical nose job cannot correct major deformities or help with those who want a significantly smaller nose.
There are minor side effects including bruising, redness, swelling and irritation.
