Nose jobs are one of the most common plastic-surgery procedures, but not every form of rhinoplasty is as involved – or as permanent – as you might guess. In fact, one type of nose job happens so quickly – in just 10 minutes – that you practically could do it over your lunch break before heading back to the office.
Instead of surgery, this nose job involves an injection – and it’s an option that’s gaining in popularity, according to a recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association. “Some people don’t want to go under the knife and they aren’t after significant and permanent changes to their nose,” says Dr. Deepak Raj Dugar, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. “Instead, they are looking for subtle, temporary results.”
Dugar specializes in the Scarless Nose (closed rhinoplasty) surgical technique.
