If you've been thinking about getting a nose job recently, or even for the past few years, you're not alone. While there are no Canadian statistics on plastic surgery procedures, it was recorded that over 218,000 Americans underwent nose reshaping surgery in 2017. While the numbers have been slowly decreasing, it's not unusual that you or your friends have talked about wanting your nose reshaped.
If you want one, no shame girl! We won't promote going under the knife, but if that's what you choose, then you do you. But on the other hand, there is a non-surgical "nose job" option that could totally change your life! And it's quick and painless.
The purpose of the procedure is to contour, define, and correct the shape of the nose using hyaluronic acid filler without the invasive use of surgery. It "corrects" bumps by actually adding volume in specific areas to smoothen out the contours of the nose -- but it will look as if your nose is slimmer. All it takes is a few rather painless injections to the nose and BAM, you've got an instant nose job!
While many doctors call it by different names, the non-surgical nose job is also nicknamed the "lunchtime nose job" for how fast it takes. The procedure only requires 15 minutes of your time, and that's pretty much it. And if you were wondering, recovery time is practically non-existent as the procedure is so minimal. There may be mild bruising, but it won't take too long to heal.

While it's always important to consult with your physician first before considering undergoing any kind of procedure, there's now a way to get a nose job done without really getting a nose job!
