Non surgical nose reshaping
Non-surgical nose reshaping is the new safe, non-invasive alternative to traditional nasal surgery (rhinoplasty). The procedure involves the injection of a hyaluronic acid dermal filler into areas around the nose which work to change the overall shape or result in a straighter nose.
The use of dermal fillers can change the appearance of your nose if you are unhappy about the shape, or have an unattractive bump, depression or asymmetry. This technique is also ideal if you have had an accident which has caused a deformity or if you have had nasal surgery and are not quite happy with the results.
The nose-shaping consultation
During the consultation, your ideals and expectations will be discussed and your nasal profile will be examined and assessed in relation to your overall facial structure.
The nose should be proportionate to the facial width and height, and chin and lip projection in relation to the nose is also taken into account.
Why have non surgical nose reshaping?
As the nose is the central feature of the face, it has a significant effect on our facial aesthetics.
The nasal contours and the nasal tip strongly define the character of the nose which is the reason why surgical reduction or alteration of the tip was very popular in the past.
However, this is becoming less desirable due to the risks, complications and long recovery times that accompany surgical procedures.
Indications for non-surgical nose reshaping include:
- To correct asymmetry
- To smooth contours of the nose
- To even out bumps and depressions
- To raise the bridge of the nose
- To raise the tip of the nose
- Nasal tip projection (for the tip to appear more pointed)
What are the side-effects?
Following the procedure there may be minimal swelling or redness, which subsides in a few days. Complications are not common but possible risks of the procedure can include minor swelling bruising and infection.
You will be fully supported during and after the procedure at the clinic.
Patients are given post-procedure instructions, and most people can resume their daily activities and work immediately.
A free follow-up consultation is arranged two weeks later if required.
Is it right for me?
Non-surgical nose reshaping is an excellent, affordable option if you who want to change the shape of your nose but do not want surgery.
Results are instant; there is no downtime, no general anaesthetic and no prolonged healing needed.
It is one of the most desired cosmetic procedures, but many patients are frightened by the potential complications and the risk of unfavourable results.
How does it work?
The procedure takes about twenty minutes and only requires the use of a local anaesthetic cream about 20 minutes beforehand. The dermal filler also includes a painkiller ingredient, leading to a more comfortable treatment experience.
The procedure is fast and painless with no downtime and the dramatic result is seen immediately.
The effect can last up to one year.
