How does non surgical nose augmentation work?
Non surgical nose augmentation involves the use of dermal filler injections to achieve the desired contour of the nose.
We can inject the dermal filler into the nose to correct the following
- Build the bridge of the nose
- Improve the shape and height of the tip of the nose
- Even out nose hump
- Correct small defects of nose surgery (rhinoplasty)
Firstly, the nose is numbed using a local anaesthetic for your comfort. The dermal filler is injected into the specific areas of the nose based on what is being corrected. The treatment typically takes around 30 minutes, with results often visible immediately. However, recovery times can vary, with some patients experiencing swelling and bruising.
The results of non surgical nose augmentation are temporary and can last anywhere from 12 to 18 months, though this can vary between individuals. If the results are not what you expected, there is a possibility to dissolve the dermal filler product, though this process has its own risks and limitations.
At me clinic our injectors have had many years experience and will discuss whether this treatment is right for you at your initial consultation.
What should you expect after non surgical nose augmentation treatment?
In the first day or so after your treatment you may experience some redness, swelling and tenderness in the treated areas. These reactions are commonly observed and usually resolve within a short period of time. However, individual experiences may vary, and there are potential risks associated with the treatment. It helps to apply a cool compress to the treated areas to relieve swelling and any bruising.
It is advisable to avoid strenuous exercise, excessive alcohol consumption, and extreme temperature changes, as these factors may potentially affect recovery and increase the risk of bruising or swelling. It is advisable to consult with your healthcare provider regarding the use of cosmetics, moisturisers, and skincare products after the treatment to ensure proper healing and minimise potential complications.
