With such a central location, it is no wonder that the nose contributes largely to how we feel about our overall appearance. While some people are seemingly born with the perfect nose, others are left dissatisfied with their natural shape or size. The right nose can help to define the face and create beautiful symmetry. It can masculinise or feminise a person’s face, and therefore many people make the choice to alter this particular aspect of their appearance.
Up until recently, surgery was the only available option to those seeking change. With permanent results, high levels of dissatisfaction, long downtimes (estimated 2 weeks recommended absence from work), expensive costs (average procedure is priced between £5,000-£10,000), and health risks that include those associated with general anaesthesia, quite understandably, surgical rhinoplasty is not for everyone.
However, in more recent years, the soaring popularity of the dermal filler industry has led to the evolution of an exciting alternative to surgery. Non-surgical rhinoplasty involves using small increments of dermal filler to blend lumps, lift the tip of the nose and straighten the overall appearance, with potentially life-changing results for the client.
Unlike the surgical alternative, medical rhinoplasty is not permanent. Results last 12-18 months on average, but this will vary based on individual anatomy, metabolism and lifestyle habits. However, the procedure has little to no downtime and can be performed in as little as 15 minutes without the need for a general anaesthetic or invasive surgical methods.
Dermal fillers range vastly in quality and physical characteristics, with some brands offering a higher calibre of product then others. Examples of popular brands with good longevity and excellent safety records are Juvederm, Teoxane and Belotero, to name but a few. Each of these companies produce Hyaluronic Acid based fillers (HA) that are semi-permanent and dissolvable, making them an incredibly popular choice for treatment.
Due to the complexity of nasal anatomy, it is crucial for us to be treated as individuals when it comes to treatment planning, and therefore it is highly advisable to see a clinician who favours individual assessment, to allow correct diagnosis of the anatomical structures in need of a little support. Performed properly, this will allow for robust treatment planning that aims to provide you with pleasing results.
