The nose is probably the most prominent and noticeable feature of the face. The slightest asymmetry or disproportionate sizing can have a significant effect on our overall facial appearance. If you are not entirely happy with the size and shape of your nose and would like an effective solution to this concern, without going under the knife, we offer the non-surgical nose job (rhinoplasty) using dermal fillers here at CAREFORSKIN in Clitheroe.
What is a non-surgical nose job?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a method which utilises hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, injected in to various parts of the nose to re-shape and sculpt its form, without the need for invasive surgery. Commonly known as the ’10 minute nose job’, non-surgical rhinoplasty requires no overnight hospital stay, no breaking of the nasal bones for reshaping (which can lead to extensive downtime and two black eyes!) and no general anaesthetic.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance within the body, responsible for youthful skin which is hydrated and toned. HA when mixed with a thick gel and injected in to the areas of concern, can build and re-shape areas of the nose, producing immediate and natural-looking results.
The benefits of the non-surgical rhinoplasty over surgery include:
- No general anaesthetic
- No hospital overnight stay
- No invasive techniques such as breaking the bones – leading to extensive bruising and discomfort
- Little to no downtime
- Walk-in-walk-out treatment
- Immediate results
- Minimal discomfort
- Temporary results, so effects can be altered over time as the face ages
The non-surgical nose job can correct the following concerns:
- A crooked or misshapen nose
- A smaller nose needing enhancement
- A hooked shaped nose which needs straightening
- Bumps and irregularities of the nose
- A nose requiring further refinement following a surgical procedure
- A nose that requires more height and definition or a nose tip
Most people with misshapen or asymmetrical features of the nose can benefit from rhinoplasty using dermal fillers. However, prior to any treatment here at CAREFORSKIN we will ask you to attend a no-obligation consultation with Dr Syed, so that she can discuss your individual concerns, assess your nose shape and how it compliments your facial anatomy and come up with a suitable treatment plan for you.
When both Dr Syed and you have decided that non-surgical rhinoplasty will be right for you, you will then be invited back to the clinic to undergo the procedure.
Your results and aftercare
You will be able to see the results immediately after your non-surgical nose job as the HA filler will plump out and add volume to the treatment area. However, you will need to allow a period for the product to settle in (usually around 1 to 3 weeks) before you will see optimum results and may have a little swelling, redness and some bruising in the days that follow. This will subside naturally and with the assistance of an ice pack and arnica gel.
You will be given some aftercare advice to adhere to, following your non-surgical nose job, such as not to rub or touch the area treated for at least 4 hours and to try and sleep on your back as much as you can, so that you do not put any unnecessary pressure on your nose. It’s important to follow the instructions of Dr Syed to obtain and maintain superb results and to negate any complications.
If you follow your initial aftercare instructions, your results can last between 6 to 18 months. This will also depend on your skin quality, lifestyle choices and natural absorption rate of the dermal filler within your system.
Because the results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are temporary, minor adjustments can be made each time you have your treatment, to compliment the natural changes that your face will go through as you age. This means that you will always retain the most natural and complimentary results for your face.
