Non-surgical Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic medical procedure of augmentation to alter and reshape a person's nose without carrying surgery. The process involves filling of depressed areas of the nose by lifting the angle of the tip, smoothing out the appearance of bumps, and making it less angular. The process involves the use of dermal fillers most commonly hyaluronic acid to beautify the nose and an overall face symmetry, but not helps in size reduction of the nose. The process is also known as liquid Rhinoplasty, liquid nose job, 15 minutes nose job, and non-surgical nose job.
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty involves the use of hyaluronic acid fillers to be injected beneath the skin of the nose to modify its tip to make it crispier, refined, and to provide temporary facial rejuvenation and harmony. Filler ingredients settle into deeper layers from the site where it is injected. Hyaluronic acid filler holds its shape and can change the look of your nose at any desired location, from six months to three years.
Non-surgical nose job is a more straightforward cosmetic procedure which gives desired outcomes without getting under the knife, and just a needle can create wonders. The process starts by applying local anaesthesia to the nose and surrounding areas to minimize the effect of pain and pressure produced by the injection needle. Usually, lidocaine is used for temporary numbness of the site of the nose and surrounding areas. After the local anaesthesia agent takes its effect a sterile syringe prepacked with filler and a hypodermic needle, i.e. 27-G, 25mm is used to inject material under nasal skin deep inside subcutaneous tissues present above the periosteum. Dermal filler (hyaluronic acid) is injected into the desired area of the nose, maybe nose bridge or tip. The patient may feel the slight pinching sensation while the procedure is carried out.
The whole treatment procedure of non-surgical Rhinoplasty takes about fifteen to forty minutes, depending upon the area to be treated and desired outcomes.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are temporary dermal fillers which are used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds and to give structure to temples, chin, jaws, and nose. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our body, especially in skin, eyes, and joints. It is responsible for retaining water and for keeping your skin moist and hydrated. Different varieties of hyaluronic acid are present like Beletero Balano, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Voluma, Liquid silicon, Polyacrylamide gel (PAAG or Aquamid), and polymethylmethacrylate (Artefill).
Each of the hyaluronic acid fillers has unique characteristics, and they produce the best results based on the location and the area they are injected. Hyaluronic acid fillers used in non-surgical Rhinoplasty are Restylane, Juvederm or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse).
Dermal fillers used to modify the shape of the nose can be injected at any part of the nose, but usually targeted sites are the bridge, tip, and sides of the nose. Non-surgical nose job successfully smooths out small bumps in the nose, and it can also make the tip of nose more prominent by giving it volume and lifting it at a suitable angle. The broader nose cannot get smaller; also, large nose bumps cannot be smooth out by non-surgical Rhinoplasty. One has to undergo cosmetic surgery to achieve such goals. Following are the details of targeted areas corrected by non-surgical Rhinoplasty;
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty is an excellent alternative to surgery in many cases, but some areas of nose cannot get desired outcomes without getting under the knife. Here are few sites of the nose which cannot be treated by non-surgical Rhinoplasty.
Patients who want to raise their nose bridge by adding volume, filling in nose dip, and want to flatten the appearance of small to moderate size bumps are ideal candidates for non-surgical Rhinoplasty.
Patients who are not willing to undergo surgery by traditional means can quickly correct symmetry of their nasal features by a liquid nose job.
Candidates for non-surgical Rhinoplasty must be in good health, and they must have a realistic approach for the procedure.
Patients with bleeding and clotting disorders are not ideal candidates for non-surgical Rhinoplasty.
Desired cosmetic outcomes can be achieved with a prior detailed discussion with the aesthetic practitioner who will assess the candidate’s requirements and will elaborate achievement of best possible nose contour illusions.
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty can be referred to as the lunch break procedure.
It takes fifteen to forty minutes to get completed. The patient must have a realistic approach for nose reshaping.
Fillers of hyaluronic acid may last for about six months to three years, so maintenance touch-ups will be required from time to time as the process of liquid nose job is not permanent in its outcomes. A slight pinching pressure may be observed after the filler injection is applied.
The patient would be able to carry everyday activities after the procedure. Some patients might have mild bruising for a few days after the dermal filler is injected.
Here is a list of broad guidelines associated with non-surgical Rhinoplasty.
Blood-thinning agents like aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, Vitamin E supplements should be avoided one week before non-surgical Rhinoplasty.br />
Increased level of Vitamin K helps in reducing the risk of bruising at the site of administration of filler injection. Taking green leafy vegetable help in boosting vitamin K levels
Drinking plenty of water, eating starch and proteins is advised before getting into procedure. Eating a lot of food is not recommended as it may cause nausea during or after the nose job session.
