Nose jobs fall out of fashion as more patients are choosing non-surgical alternatives, medics say

  • The number of nose jobs has plummeted from 4,878 in 2013 to 1,330 in 2021
  • Experts say that people are now turning to non-surgical alternatives
  • ‘Reversible’ alternative puts a stop to customers’ later regretting plastic surgery 

Going under the knife for a nose job is becoming less popular as people turn to non-surgical alternatives instead, surgeons have said.

The number of nose jobs performed each year has plummeted – down from 4,878 in 2013 to 1,330 in 2021. 

One of the advantages of a non-surgical treatment is that injecting a temporary filler can change a nose’s shape for up to two years, experts claim.

The ‘reversible’ alternative puts a stop to customers’ later regretting plastic surgery – such as in the case of model Bella Hadid, who felt the decision to go under the knife at 14 was a mistake.

Ifeoma Ejikeme, founder of Adonia Medical Clinic, told The Sunday Times: ‘Five years ago, nobody was thinking about a non-surgical nose procedure. Now it is one of the fastest-growing treatments.’

The recovery process is also quicker as clinics say a person could return to work the same day compared with having to take two weeks off wrapped in bandages.

But surgeons warn that while fillers can help straighten a bumpy nose, they are not able to reduce its size.
