A face is defined by many features; however, because of its central position on the face, the nose is one of the most important aesthetic structures. Irregularities or disproportions in the nose can have a significant impact on one’s appearance. Because our faces form from 2 separate halves, asymmetries are more often the norm rather than the exception with the nose, since it receives a portion from each half of the face. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular and desired cosmetic procedures. For many years, nose correction has been a typical surgical technique that improves many defects of one of the face’s most important features, but, understandably, many patients are concerned about undergoing surgery due to the potential complications and the risk of unfavourable results. With advances in fillers, many patients with minor nasal defects, due to anatomical problems or aging factors are turning toward simple in-office correction of nasal irregularities as opposed to or as a prelude to surgery. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgery for people who wish to change the shape of their noses. This procedure can lift and straighten the tip of your nose, camouflage a bump, unwanted dent or a deviated nasal bridge. A good indication can also be the correction of nasal contour deformities after surgical interventions.
By correcting these imperfections with the dermal fillers, your nose will become smaller, more symmetric, and attractive. The procedure uses dermal fillers – injected in small amounts in precise locations – to change the shape and contour of nose. Non-surgical rhinoplasty offers immediate results, quicker healing time, minimal pain, and patients can return immediately to their daily lives. Treatment sites may be swollen for several days. There is also potential for bruising at the injection site, which may be covered with makeup. Because there is minimal motion in this area, the duration of effect lasts about a year and a half in most instances; however, individual results may vary depending on lifestyle, age and other factors. The primary advantage to using fillers in the nose is the ability to fix a deformity without the financial expense, anesthetic risk, or downtime generally associated with surgical intervention. Results are subtle, therefore you will look better but not like a person who had a nose job. If you are considering nose reshaping, but do not wish to go through invasive and painful procedures, this revolutionary, safe and effective method is just right for you. As patients age there is a natural loss of support in the area of the nasal tip and the cartilage framework that supports the tip of the nose. Some patients are actually born with this and when they smile the tip of the nose naturally turns downward due to the action of the septal depressor muscle. The use of BTx A can create nasal tip elevation and projetion, an effect that usually can only be made possible by surgical rhinoplasty. An evaluation would be needed to determine if you would be a candidate for this procedure.
