The nose is considered one of the most noticeable features of a person’s face. Having a well-balanced nose brings facial features into harmony and plays a significant role in a person’s self-image. It can have a positive or negative effect. The good news is if you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose, there are alternatives available. One effective option, which does not involve surgery, is known as the Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty.
The Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery or Nose Job) procedure is considered an alternative for minor irregularities of the nose, which can be altered without traditional nose surgery.
How Does a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Work?
Minor irregularities of the nose, like a pinched tip or high nostrils, can be fixed with this method. The injectable fillers are placed under the skin tissues to amplify the outer appearance of the nose. The patient usually undergoes a simple non-surgical procedure for as little as 15 to 20 minutes without any significant downtime.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is temporary and involves enhancements to specific portions of the nose with fillers that are safe and simple. The changes are immediate and do not result in permanent changes.
The filler is injected under the skin tissue through a process called the micro droplet technique, which very gentle on the skin. Since this procedure does not involve surgery, the patient is fully awake throughout the process. You can actually view the procedure with a mirror as Dr. Slupchynskyj applies an anesthetic to the nose portion and injects the injectable to specific portions of the nose during the entire process. The only aspect, which needs attention after this simple procedure is to do follow-up, visits to further enhance the developments.
The dermal fillers, which are used for camouflaging the deformities of the nose in this process, are usually Restylane®™, Juvéderm®™ or Radiesse®™, all considered safe and healthy by the FDA.
For irregularities which may involve an asymmetrical nose, dentations or a sharp nose that appear too small or too large in comparison to the overall facial structure, this type of non-surgical procedure is a good alternative.
Here are a few benefits of dermal fillers:
• The results are natural-looking and immediately noticeable.
• There is no downtime following the procedure. Patients can resume their daily activities.
• Dermal fillers are considered temporary. So, if you’re not completely satisfied with the enhancement, the results will eventually fade and a different approach can be pursued.
Prior to any Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Slupchynskyj will assess the facial structure and do an in-depth analysis of the specific areas of the nose, which would benefit from a filler lift. During this initial assessment, the treatment options and the realistic outcomes from this procedure are thoroughly discussed.
With this particular procedure you cannot make more advanced changes to the nose topography like a thinner bridge, a narrower tip or removal of large dorsal humps. However, just like any cosmetic enhancement, the Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty method is capable of camouflaging minor nose deformities.
Advantages of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty offers an array of benefits. Often, patients with minor facial flaws mention to Dr. Slupchynskyj that they experience low self-esteem. Many people who have undergone a Rhinoplasty have experienced a great increase in their self-confidence. Here are a few additional benefits:
• Easy recovery.
• Decreases a rounded nasal tip.
• Provides a lifting effect for a curved nasal tip.
• Decreases dents or grooves.
• Lifts up a horizontal bridge.
• Camouflages crookedness.
• Camouflages a nose bump by filling up the bridge area.
