NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY TREATMENT
BY Dr Berry
Dermal filler can be used to reshape, define, hide bumps, and straighten the nose. This is an exceptional and affordable option for those wanting to change the shape of their nose and do not want surgery. The results are instant with no excessive downtime, no general anaesthetic and no prolonged healing process.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as liquid rhinoplasty or non-surgical nose job, is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of dermal fillers to reshape the nose without the need for surgery. This treatment is a popular alternative to traditional rhinoplasty, which involves surgery and requires a longer recovery time.
The procedure involves injecting a hyaluronic acid-based filler into specific areas of the nose to create a more balanced and symmetrical appearance. The filler can be used to smooth out bumps or humps on the bridge of the nose, lift the tip of the nose, and even out asymmetries.
One of the main advantages of non-surgical rhinoplasty is that it can be performed in a relatively short amount of time, and patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately afterwards. There is also little to no downtime, and most patients experience only mild swelling and bruising at the injection sites, which typically resolves within a few days.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is not appropriate for everyone, however. Patients who require significant changes to the structure of their nose or who have breathing problems may not be good candidates for this procedure. Additionally, the results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are temporary and typically last for 12-18 months, after which the filler will gradually break down and be absorbed by the body. To maintain the results, patients may need to undergo repeat injections.
