Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as non-surgical nose job, is a cosmetic procedure that involves reshaping the nose without surgery. Instead of using surgical tools, non-surgical rhinoplasty uses injectable fillers such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, or poly-L-lactic acid to modify the shape of the nose. The procedure is typically performed by a trained healthcare professional, such as a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Before the procedure, the healthcare professional will conduct a physical examination of the patient's nose and discuss the patient's aesthetic goals.
During the procedure, the healthcare professional will inject the chosen filler material into specific areas of the nose to improve its shape and contour. The filler material can be used to fill in depressions, smooth out bumps, or change the angle of the nose tip. The entire procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes, and most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is considered a safe and effective alternative to traditional surgical rhinoplasty for patients who wish to improve the appearance of their nose but do not want to undergo surgery. The procedure can produce immediate results, with minimal pain, swelling, or downtime. However, the results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are temporary, typically lasting between 6 to 18 months, depending on the type of filler material used.
It is important to note that non-surgical rhinoplasty is not suitable for all patients. Patients with significant deformities or functional issues, such as a deviated septum or breathing problems, may require surgical rhinoplasty. Additionally, patients with a history of allergic reactions or autoimmune diseases may not be suitable candidates for the procedure. Overall, non-surgical rhinoplasty is a viable option for patients who wish to enhance the appearance of their nose without undergoing surgery. However, it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if the procedure is suitable for you and to discuss the potential risks and benefits.
“ I've been to Dr. Farrugia many times for Botox. He was able to put me at ease and listened carefully to what I was hoping the outcome to be. He is always willing to adjust the procedure each time if required. I feel like I look younger in a natural way. I couldn't be more pleased Thank you St. Marys Clinic.” Mary Deguara.
