One of the ways humans instinctively gauge attractiveness is through symmetry. Your gorgeous eyes and mouth can be all for naught if your nose detracts from them because of unsightly lumps or a droopy tip due to aging.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a procedure in which injectable dermal fillers are used to alter the shape a person's nose without invasive surgery.
The procedure fills in depressed areas on the nose, lifting the angle of the tip or smoothing the appearance of bumps on the bridge. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an augmentation procedure, so it cannot reduce the size of someone's nose.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Can Correct
Non-surgical rhinoplasty can:
- Fix the appearance of a flat or bumpy nasal bridge
- Volumize nasal sidewall depressions
- Increase the height of the dorsum on the bridge of the nose
- Add shape and definition to the tip of the nose
- Straighten the bridge and correct a dorsal hump
- Fix the appearance of a crooked nose by adding balance and improving symmetry
- Improve irregularities or deformities from a previous rhinoplasty surgery
The procedure cannot:
- Correct functional defects
Decrease nose size (although it can make the nose appear smaller by making it look straighter and more symmetrical)
The Best Candidates
If you want to change the profile of your nose, but don’t want to undergo surgery, don’t want an extensive recovery period, don’t have much time to spare and want to see results immediately, then non-surgical rhinoplasty may be a suitable option for you
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Procedure
First you will have a consultation to discuss your concerns and help you determine the desirable amount of change to your nose.
Non-surgical nose surgery takes just a few minutes to perform. Dermal fillers are injected using a fine needle to fill depressions, smooth out sharp angles, or change the angle of the tip of the nose, restoring symmetry and making your nose appear more attractive and in better harmony with your face. Anesthesia is not required for this procedure because there is minimal pain and discomfort. You are completely awake during the procedure, and you have the opportunity to look at yourself in a mirror and contribute to your final results
After Your Procedure
Because the procedure is not invasive, bruising and swelling are minimal.
Depending upon the filler used, injection rhinoplasty can last anywhere from nine months to a year. Towards the end of that time, your body breaks down the filler in a gradual, symmetrical manner. At no point during this process will your nose look awkward or misshapen. It will simply return to its native shape in a uniform manner.
