There are plenty of reasons why a rhinoplasty (or more commonly referred to as nose job) would be on anyone’s radar. From repairing defects and damage to cosmetic purposes, rhinoplasty can dramatically change an individual’s appearance by restructuring them.
However, there are a few reasons why someone may be hindered from pursuing such a surgery; with potential post-op difficulties, long recovery period, and high costs, the surgery is reserved for those who can afford not only the cost, but also the time.
Thankfully however, technology has progressed to allow rhinoplasty without any invasive surgical procedures.
What is non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty involves the use of injectable fillers that focus on the small changes in one’s nose. Not only do these small adjustments translate to big improvements in appearance, the fillers themselves are also dissolvable and easily reversible should one decide against it.
It is also important to note non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed purely for cosmetic reasons. Physical restructuring of the nose to alleviate certain deformities still requires an individual to perform surgical rhinoplasty instead.
Types of non-surgical rhinoplasty
Nose Thread Lift
As the name suggests, the procedure uses polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift and shape the nose until the desired effect is reached. The fine threads are inserted under the skin whilst stimulating collagen to provide a new set of support for the nose. Not only are the threads 100% bio-compatible, and absorbable, effects can be seen immediately after the procedure is done.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are injected into the nose to provide the desired lift effect. Local anaesthesia will be administered first before the HA fillers are injected in the tip and bridge of the nose.
Who requires non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty may be beneficial for people looking to:
- Fix a bump or hump at the bridge of their nose
- Lift their nose profile (especially cases of broad, wide, or flat nose)
- Fix any asymmetrical features on their nose
- Lift a droopy nasal tip
Benefits and Advantages
There are numerous benefits to doing non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Treatment is short. In most cases, the entire procedure will last 10 – 15 minutes.
- You gain natural-looking results immediately.
- If you are not satisfied, the results can be reversed.
- No surgical scarring means there are no visible signs of the procedure whatsoever.
- No downtime is required.
How long will the surgery last?
A nose thread lift procedure can be expected to last around 1 – 2 years, while injectable fillers will last around 1 – 1.5 years, due to the body gradually breaking down the fillers. Fortunately, to maintain such results, a patient can repeat the treatment as frequently as they like with no adverse side effects.
