Would You Get a "No Knife" Nose Job?
A new procedure makes it possible to improve your nose without undergoing surgery
"Nose Shaping" is a five-minute procedure that uses fillers to address several different issues. It can, according to the Daily Mail, "treat a dorsal bump, straighten the nose, build up a flat nose, [be used for] nasal shaping and for uneven noses post-injury."
The procedure, pioneered by one Dr. Milojevic, is gaining momentum as word spreads. "In the last two to three years -- since I really perfected my technique -- it has become increasingly popular," the London based doctor says.

Does word of this make you want to click on over to Travelocity and book a flight ASAP? Not so fast, the procedure isn't suitable for everyone. As Milojevic explains; "The ideal candidate for this non-surgical procedure is somebody who hasn't got a big problem --someone who has a small bump on the nose or slight unevenness or a small hole after a surgery -- with them we can achieve amazing results. However, the bigger the nose, the bigger the problem. The thicker the tip of the nose is, the harder it becomes. We tend to turn away about 20-30 percent of patients who have that kind of the problem with their nose, and recommend rhinoplasty."
Still, this is a big step in moving away from the operating table when treating body issues that bug us.
