The nose is one of the most commonly focused-on features of the face, and for good reason: the nose is such a significant part of the face, even subtle changes can dramatically alter one’s overall appearance. In modern times, it’s possible to alter the appearance of the nose without undergoing traditional surgery. Here’s everything you need to know about non-surgical rhinoplasty, from our team of cosmetic surgery specialists at 8 West.
More popular as of late, the word is getting out that it is actually possible to change the nose without a significant surgical procedure. But, how? The answer to non-surgical rhinoplasty is simple: dermal fillers.
Dermal Fillers to Change the Nose
As in the above photo, dermal fillers can be used to camouflage certain aspects of the nose, such as a dorsal hump. In this case, injections of dermal fillers are used to fill in either side of the hump which improves its overall appearance, giving it a much smoother hump. A crooked nose that is concave on one side, giving it a C appearance, can also be a candidate for dermal fillers to change the nose, allowing the injector to fill the concave side. Experienced injectors can also use dermal fillers in some cases to elevate the nasal tip slightly.
What Dermal Fillers Can’t Do
Dermal fillers like Restylane can do a lot for refining the nose, but there are certain things they just can’t do, including:
- Dermal fillers can’t make a large nose smaller
- Dermal fillers can’t refine a bulbous nasal tip
- Dermal fillers can’t refine the nasal tip much, if at all, because of the mass of dermal fillers
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
When using Hyaluronic Acid fillers like Restylane for your non-surgical rhinoplasty, you can expect the results to last about six months. While other forms of fillers may last longer, the benefits of HA fillers used at 8 West Cosmetic Surgery include reversibility (if the results are not desired) and the natural substance of HA itself.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Treatment and Results
While a highly experienced injector, nurse, or cosmetic surgeon must be relied upon to perform the highly technical non-surgical rhinoplasty, results are instant. This no downtime procedure is quick and relatively comfortable, with only topical anesthetic being used for most patients.
