The thought that you can get your ideal nose shape in under 15 minutes sounds impossible, but Los Angeles-based cosmetic surgeon Alexander Rivkin has found a way to do it in — wait for it — approximately five minutes. In less than the time it takes to run a mile, Rivkin injects the bridge of the nose with hyaluronic acid filler (he prefers Restylane), creating a smooth, heightened nose using a treatment dubbed the non-surgical nose job. Given all of this, I decided to have the procedure. Here's what happened.
Although people have told me that my nose is just fine, I am extremely unhappy with it. I think it's a bit too wide and I wish it wasn't so flat. When offered the chance to get a non-surgical nose job, I jumped at the opportunity. The catch? The procedure would be filmed live (as in during a Facebook Live), so I had to keep my cool while on camera.
