Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure that is performed to reshape the nose. Not that long ago a Surgical Rhinoplasty would have been the only option available if you wished to reshape the nose. Fortunately with the improving technology and safety amongst non-surgical injectables patients now have the option of a Non-surgical rhinoplasty. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a procedure that uses injectable dermal fillers to alter the shape of the nose without the need for surgery. Here is everything you need to know about non-surgical rhinoplasty.
How Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Work?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty involves the use of injectable fillers usually hyaluronic acid, acid based to alter the shape of the nose. The fillers are injected into specific areas of the nose to improve its contour, symmetry, and balance. The procedure is relatively quick (15-30 minutes) and painless, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is ideal for patients who want to improve the appearance of their nose however are not keen on the Surgical route perhaps due to cost or downtime. It is most suitable for patients who have minor imperfections such as bumps or depressions on the nose as well as droopy tips that can be corrected with fillers. However, it is important to note that non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot correct major deformities or breathing problems.
What Are The Benefits Of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
One of the main benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty is that it is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require anaesthesia or incisions. The procedure is also quick, relatively painless, and requires minimal to no downtime, which means that patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can also produce immediate results that last for several months, depending on the type of filler used.
What Are The Risks Of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
As with any medical procedure, non-surgical rhinoplasty comes with certain risks. Some of the common side effects include bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site. In exceptionally rare cases, patients may experience an allergic reaction to the filler, which can cause severe swelling, itching, and difficulty breathing. Due to the vascular anatomy of the nose it is possible to develop a vascular occlusion whereby filler is injected directly into an artery which compromises the blood supply, fortunately this can be reversed as long as it is identified early.
It is for the above reasons extremely important patients choose a qualified and experienced Medical Professional who is fully aware of the risks and has experience in both reducing the risk and dealing with any possible complication caused.
What Is The Recovery Process Like After Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that requires minimal to no downtime. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment. However, they may experience some swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site, which can last for a few days. Patients are advised to avoid touching or rubbing the treated area for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
How Long Do The Results Of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Last?
The results of non-surgical rhinoplasty can last approximately 1 year depending on the type of filler used. Patients can maintain the results of the procedure by scheduling maintenance treatments once or twice per year with their Aesthetic clinician.
In conclusion, non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe and effective alternative to traditional rhinoplasty. It is a minimally invasive procedure that can produce immediate and dramatic results without the need for anesthesia or incisions.
The results from this procedure can be lifechanging and from my perspective one of the most rewarding treatments I offer, to ensure you have the best outcome it is imperative you choose a Medical Professional with both the relevant skills and experience to ensure you are in safe hands.
