What causes a nasal dorsal hump?
If genetic, a dorsal hump can be an inherited trait from either parent. In this instance, the nose will continue to grow and develop with age, including the bump.
Alternatively, the trauma from an injury to the nose can lead to bone growth or the development of calcium deposits, forming a bump on the nose.
Am I a good candidate for nasal dorsal hump correction?
For most doctors, the ideal candidate is someone who wants to make slight improvements to their nose. They will use filler to disguise the bump and make it straighter. If you want to know for certain whether your nose is suited for dorsal hump correction, it is best to speak with a cosmetic doctor. We recommend that you bring a photo of your ideal nose, as we may be able to utilise fillers to make further adjustments, based on your preference.
How long does a non-surgical nose job last?
Non-surgical nose jobs are not permanent. As with all fillers, the body gradually breaks down the substance; so further follow up treatments are required if you wish to maintain the results.
On average, the changes last approximately 12 months. This makes it a good idea for people who are interested in testing the effects before they commit to full Rhinoplasty surgery.
What are the risks of a non-surgical nose job?
As with any medical procedure, things could go wrong. Although people assume this procedure is completely safe because there is no surgery involved, the nose is quite fragile, and care must be taken.
Similar to other procedures, there is a risk of:
- Skin damage
- Minor to severe deformities
How long does the treatment take?
We insist on an initial consultation to ascertain your vision and whether this form of treatment is suitable for you.
The procedure itself usually takes ten to 15 minutes. Once you’re in the chair, your cosmetic doctor will clean the skin on or around the nose. Then, the dermal filler will be injected.
You will see the results almost immediately following the procedure.
What are the side-effects?
Like most non-surgical procedures, the side-effects and recovery times after treatment are far, far better than those associated with more invasive procedures.
That said, there are still side-effects that you need to be wary of. For example, your nose may swell slightly, and there will likely be some bruising which will fade after three days or so. The nose will also feel tender to the touch, especially where the filler was injected.
Adverse reactions to the filler are possible in very rare cases. However, dermal fillers can be dissolved if necessary.
Is the procedure reversible?
In the unlikely event that you’re unhappy with the results, it is possible to reverse the procedure.
Your doctor will use a dissolving substance to restore your nose to its original shape within 48 hours. For many people, this is a distinct advantage to the permanent and sometimes undesirable results of Rhinoplasty. And, the fact that it is reversible offers reassurance to those who have reservations about changing their appearance with cosmetic procedures.
