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 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 an 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:
- Minor swelling
- Possible bruising
The extent to which these effects present themselves is significantly lower than with surgical correction. Any potential risks will be discussed in-depth during your consultation. Additionally, because the face is a sensitive area, if the filler is injected incorrectly into the nose, it can lead to blood supply damage. However, the hyaluronic acid in dermal fillers is both dissolvable and reversible if required.
