Botox® Tip of Nose Lift Treatment

When you hear the term “nose job,” you may picture in your mind bandages, swelling, bruising around the eyes and a nasally voice during days of recovery. Surgical rhinoplasty can be quite the experience. Not all nose jobs require surgery, though.

Many people are turning to non-surgical nose jobs for convenience. Others use it as a way to determine if they want a more permanent change through surgery. A nose lift is an example of non-surgical treatment for changing the appearance of your nose. Raising the tip of your nose can be accomplished with Botox® treatment.

Nose Lift with Botox

At the junction of the base of the nose and top of the lip is a muscle that can pull the tip of the nose down when you laugh, smile and in some cases, talk. This is the depressor muscle. In some individuals, this action is more pronounced than others.

When injected into this muscle, Botox inhibits nerve signals to the brain, which results in the muscle moving less and becoming more relaxed. With the movement of the depressor muscle inhibited, the nose is no longer downturned, and the tip is automatically released. Fillers may be added to the tip of the nose to provide more support and structure.

What to Expect From Botox Nose Lift

A nose lift using Botox is very effective. Small needles are used to inject the Botox directly into the depressor muscle at the base of the nose. Topical anesthetic or an ice pack may be used to numb the area for your comfort, though you should not feel any pain.

You will not see the results of the treatment immediately since it takes a few days for the Botox to take effect. Once it begins to work, the depressor muscle will no longer pull the tip of the nose down when you smile, laugh or talk. If you are also receiving filler, the Botox treatment will occur about a week before the filler is injected. This waiting period is to give the Botox time to relax the muscle. You will see immediate results when the filler is injected for shaping.

The Botox treatment will last for a few months, and the filler may last a year or longer. Follow-up Botox injections are necessary to maintain your non-surgical nose lift.

You can explore the possibilities of a non-surgical nose lift when you schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Khosh or Michele Rivard, PA, at Creative Facial Aesthetics located in NYC.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
