Nose Augmentation, or otherwise known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty, can be performed to correct the shape of the nose using dermal filler injections. This technique of modifying the shape of the nose through injection is perhaps new to most that associate modifications of the nose exclusively to surgical rhinoplasty. However, with precision injections, one of our medical professionals can correct and modify the shape of the nose without altering the innate physical structure– hence the usage of the term non-surgical. In the expert hands of our doctors, a more asymmetrical nasal feature is attained; the results are immediate and will last approximately 9 months and up to a year.
Using dermal filler injections to augment the nose is associated with a myriad of benefits, especially for individuals who are ineligible for surgery or unwilling to undergo the downtime associated with a surgical procedure. Furthermore, individuals who are unsure about a permanent nose job, and would like to test trial a semi-permanent procedure initially – given that it is conceivable through augmentation – gain to benefit. The absence of downtime post-procedure is perhaps the most alluring aspect of nose augmentation via dermal fillers. Patients can receive such a procedure within our clinic in 30 minutes or less, and with relative comfort, resume with their daily routine.
The procedure is as follows:
Upon consultation and full consent to the procedure, the medical professional will apply a topical anesthesia (lidocaine) to the injection site to maximize comfort and minimize pain. The medical professional will thereon make precision injections to achieve a symmetrical and contoured nose to compliment the rest of the features of the individual’s face.
Due to the injectable nature of the augmentation, patients may experience mild irritation, redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. Such side effects subside in 4-5 days and can easily be concealed with make-up. However, nose augmentation is typically a discrete procedure, and thus, does not impede with the patient’s will to return to their busy schedules.
Dermal Filler injections have the ability to contribute to the following aesthetical measures by sculpting a more pleasing and symmetrical nasal shape:
- Dermal Filler Injections can be used to correct a hump on the dorsal bridge of the nose – significantly easing the visibility of a scoop when perceived from a profile view.
- Shape and definition can be supplied to the apex (tip) of the nose by adding projection
- A crooked nose can be smoothed out by adding fillers to correct sharp angles and contour a more symmetrical shape.
- Deformities can also be corrected by dermal fillers; including to previously unsuccessful rhinoplasty procedures, deformities genetic in basis, as well as traumatic accidents.
It is important to note that nose augmentation cannot replace a traditional rhinoplasty procedure for individuals who require a structural reconstruction and physical intervention of the bones. Furthermore, as the body begins to catalyze the hyaluronic acid, the nose will resort back to its original shape, in a gradual and symmetrical manner. To maintain the results, a touchup is recommended at every 6 month interval.
