Our appearance plays a huge part when it comes to our own self-esteem. For many, undergoing plastic surgery to improve facial features is either a step too far or prohibitively expensive. The good news is that there is a less drastic, more subtle solution; non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Nose reshaping, or rhinoplasty as it’s technically known, is a process where a dermal filler is injected just under the skin on the nose to alter its shape. The process is much less invasive than surgery and can be used to augment your profile. This can include filling in depressed areas, lifting the angle of the tip or simply to smooth out any bumps on the bridge of your nose. The filler used to achieve this is hyaluronic acid, a perfectly safe substance found naturally in the body so there are no nasty chemicals to worry about.
The treatment is very simple and you will be awake throughout, giving you total control over the procedure. Our cosmetologist Doctor Q will place small injections in specific places on your nose. He will then mould the area and expertly sculpt your nose into the shape that meets your requirements. As you’ll be awake, you will be able to see the transformation taking place through a handheld mirror.
Q. Is there any recovery time after the procedure?
A. For the vast majority of patient’s, there is no recovery time and they can continue with their daily routine immediately afterwards.
Q. How long will the results last?
A. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is not a permanent solution but, typically, the procedure will last anywhere between 6 and 12 months. If you wish to maintain or adapt your new look over time, we can agree a plan for regular follow-ups to prolong the effect, once your initial treatment has been completed.
Q. Is there anything I should avoid once the treatment has been completed?
A. Yes. We advise that you avoid applying make-up to your nose for up to 6 hours and to avoid wearing heavy spectacles (including sunglasses) for 2 weeks after the procedure to minimise the impact on the affected area.
