Nose Augmentation with Filler
The non-surgical rhinoplasty is a real favourite of ours. The non-surgical rhinoplasty is one of our signature WOW factor procedures, as it magically reshapes noses, without the need for a scalpel. The procedure takes only 30-60 minutes to perform, with no pain or side-effects and great results. With this procedure, we can do many things. We can correct imperfections after a surgical rhinoplasty, we can straighten injured noses, and we can even build up and shape noses in Asian and Afro-Caribbean patients who want to have more prominent more European looking noses. All of these three applications are performed by a careful injection of hyaluronic acid fillers. The results are long-lasting, up to 12-18 months. The most beautiful use of these non-surgical nose shaping techniques, however, is undoubted that in many cases we can replicate the surgical procedure alternative, by straightening the nose, evening out the dorsal hump, lifting the tip of the nose, changing the shape of the nostrils, and optically we can even make the nose look smaller. Of course, not all patients are suitable, but this modern cutting edge technology now provides a great alternative to all those who would never consider an operation.
How Does It Work?
Considerable expertise needed with this procedure, but by carefully injecting dermal filler above and below the “bump” on the nose, we can very easily make the most “hooked” of noses, look completely straight. Additionally, by applying filler around the tip of the nose, we can make it look thinner and more refined, and can further lift the tip of the nose by injecting botox into the depressor nasalis, the muscle which continuously pulls the nose down. After around 4000 cases which we have performed, we are still amazed each time with the possibilities of this procedure.
What are the advantages of this procedure over surgery?
We will assess every patient thoroughly before deciding whether they are suitable for this non-surgical procedure. Many patients who previously thought that their only alternative was surgery, are pleasantly surprised when they say that this quick and straightforward procedure can solve their problem. However, there are still some patients who would not be suitable for this procedure and who would even have to have surgery.
The advantages of avoiding surgery are many:
- No surgical scarring
- No General anesthesia
- No hospital overnight stays. Treatment is a daytime procedure, and the patient can usually get on with their normal daily routine straight away.
- No time off work.
- In many cases, the result show better and more natural results than with the surgical alternative.
How Long Does The Procedure Take?
The procedure takes only 30-60 minutes and the results are instantaneous.
Does It Hurt?
We will do some local anesthetic before the procedure, and this coupled with our light handed technique, the procedure is easy and painless.
How Long Does The Result Last?
As we do not move the nose too much, the results can last as long as 12-18 months, and with repeat treatments, they can last even longer.
Is it Safe?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human skin and various part of the body. Filler made of hyaluronic acid is biocompatible and biodegradable and hence can be used safely in the human body.
Furthermore, the usage of hyaluronic acid is unlimited for aesthetic purpose, but FDA has also approved the use of hyaluronic acid during certain eye surgeries including cataract removal, corneal transplantation, and repair of a detached retina and other eye injuries. It is also used for joint rejuvenation.
Are There Any Side Effects??
Some injection-related side-effects can occur including redness, tenderness, swelling and bruising and none of these is ever very serious, and they will resolve in a matter of days.
After every procedure, we will give you aftercare advice.
