The nose is a key part to the balance of your face. Making the nose proportionate to the face can enhance and harmonise it with the other facial features. Even the most minor of changes to the nose can make a great difference to the general look of your face. Non surgical rhinoplasty can help to improve your confidence to live life fully and freely.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty has various other names and can often be referred to as the “No Surgery Nose Job”, “3 Point Rhino”, “Nose tip surgery”, “No-Knife Nose job” and “Injection Rhinoplasty”, to name a few.
Long lasting Dermal Filler (hyaluronic acid) is injected in small amounts and in precise locations into your skin into specific areas of the nose. This will then be massaged to reshape the nose. We use a very fine needle to ensure maximal comfort. The areas we inject depends on your original nose shape, and can range from a 3 point to 6 points injection technique. The way in which we inject your nose allows us to make your nose straighter and thus look smaller. During the procedure you are fully awake, and able to participate in getting the most optimal results.
This procedure uses Dermal Fillers (Hyaluronic Acid) and – as the previous terms suggest – is non-surgical. More importantly, this is a medical procedure and therefore, only registered practitioners such as doctors should perform these treatments. We often see patients who describe that the appearance of humps and bumps on their nose, or drooping tip affects their confidence, self esteem and well being.
Following your initial consultation, a qualified practitioner will perform the procedure. A topical anaesthetic is applied before the long-lasting dermal filler is injected in small amounts and in precise locations. This will then be massaged to reshape the nose. We use a very fine needle to ensure maximum comfort. The area we inject will depend on the original nose shape, and the technique will vary from three to six-point injection. You are fully awake during the procedure and are welcome to participate for optimal results. In terms of pain and discomfort, there is very little to worry about. In addition to the topical anaesthetic, there is also anaesthetic within the dermal filler. Therefore, you will experience very little pain and discomfort, if any at all.
You must be 18 years old before you can invest in Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty. While some young patients receive nose jobs for medical reasons, such as for a deviated septum, this is the exception and not the rule. Most cosmetic doctors won’t perform Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty until the nose has finished developing. This is why 18 years of age is a rule of thumb.
The nose is a complex area; therefore, risks are involved with an advanced procedure such as Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty. However, these are low, usually being:
The appointment usually takes 30 minutes. The downtime of this procedure is often minimal, with swelling and bruising being the most common complaints.
Approximately one to three days. The procedure itself is fast and pain-free. The light hand of our experienced cosmetic doctor means the post-procedure downtime is minimal. Usually, people can go about their day straight after treatment. Although they must be wary of wearing heavy glasses or sunglasses, as this may be painful and could unbalance the treatment.
The results are instantaneous and will last for nine to twelve months. At our clinic, we have found that the more the procedure is completed, the longer it tends to last. Some patients report a gap of two to three years between appointments.
Yes, these appointments are often booked after a dissatisfied surgical correction. After a surgical Rhinoplasty (which can take 12 months to settle fully), the nose can contract, fibrosis and scar tissue can occur, and cartilage can be displaced, leading to small imperfections. These don’t warrant a second surgery, which can be complicated, expensive and time-consuming. A non-surgical nose job is a superior alternative allowing you to avoid all the downtime associated with invasive surgery and can improve upon your initial procedure.
