Dermal fillers can be used to shape the nose as an alternative to the surgical nose procedure known as rhinoplasty.
This procedure is also known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty or the “15 minute nose job”.
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe, much less painful, and non-invasive procedure that can completely reshape a client’s nose.
WHO IS SUITABLE FOR NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY?
A nose that is slightly crooked
A flat nose
A small nose that needs volume/building up
Noses with a mild to moderate bump on the bridge
Drooping nasal tip
A nose that needs “fixed” after surgical rhinoplasty
Noses that need more of a defined tip
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
A topical anaesthetic cream will be applied half an hour prior to the procedure in order to minimize any discomfort. A very fine needle is then inserted into the parts of the nose to be shaped. In between the injections of filler, the nose will be massaged to ensure that the filler spreads correctly and the desired shape is achieved.
WHAT KIND OF DERMAL FILLER IS USED?
We use Juvederm Ultra. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in our body.
ARE THE INJECTIONS PAINFUL?
There may be minor redness, swelling, or bruising for the few days following the procedure. However, icing the area daily can help. Also, if the patient is insecure about any bruising, light cover-up can be used.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
IS BOTOX SAFE? CAN IT GO WRONG?
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
No, there is no downtime. Patients that receive this procedure will be able to resume their normal activities immediately.
You will be able to see results immediately, and the results last between six to twelve months.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET RESULTS? HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?
I'M NERVOUS... IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
A topical numbing anaesthetic cream will be applied thirty minutes prior to the treatment, minimizing any discomfort. Also, the Juvederm filler contains lidocaine and so the process gets easier as it goes on. It is a quick, stress-free, and almost painless procedure.
