Rhinoplasty is one of the UK’s most sought after surgical procedures and can be extremely effective in reshaping and sculpting the nose. However, a surgical approach can mean a lengthy stay in hospital, moderate to severe discomfort and a lot of healing time. For some of us this is just not an option and may not really be necessary. At DrMediSpa in Loughton in Essex, we offer non-surgical rhinoplasty as an alternative to surgical nose reshaping. It only takes 15 minutes, offers little to no downtime, and offers great value for money compared to going under the knife.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty involves the application of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers via injection to reshape and rebalance the nose. Sometimes known the lunchtime nose job, this treatment can be performed in clinic by Dr Munir Somji, with very little discomfort, minimal downtime and no need for a general anesthetic or hospital stay. Dr Somji is a medical aesthetics specialist and has vast experience in shaping the nose; get your perfect profile in the hands of an expert.
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty: How Do The Fillers Work?
HA, the main component of dermal fillers, is a naturally occurring sugar which is produced by the body which, alongside collagen and elastin, gives your skin that youthful, plump and hydrated look: synonymous with young skin. Dermal fillers are medically synthesised, match our own tissues and are accepted by the body with no side-effects. These temporary fillers fill out areas of lost volume and unevenness, creating a natural scaffold under the skin.
Non-surgical Nose Job: Your Treatment
As with any cosmetic procedure, you will be required to have a full consultation with Dr. Somji so he can assess your individual concern and confirm you are suitable for non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dr Somji can also use PDO/PLLA threads in the nose to create a combination treatment alongside dermal fillers – these can lift the tip of the nose and produce an even cleaner contour.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty using dermal fillers, with or without threads, can treat the following:
- A small nose that needs building up
- A crooked nose
- A hooked shaped nose that requires refinement
- Mild to moderate bridging or bumps in the nose
- A nose requiring some finishing touches following surgical treatment
- A nose that requires more definition or a nose tip
Non-surgical rhinoplasty with dermal fillers is a very straightforward treatment. A topical anesthetic can either be applied prior to treatment or will be contained in the dermal filler itself. The HA filler is injected into the areas of concern and the doctor will then massage and shape the product to achieve the best results. You are fully awake during the treatment and therefore can monitor the process and communicate with your doctor on results.
After Your Non-surgical Rhinoplasty
Post treatment you might experience some swelling, tenderness and bruising but this is perfectly normal and will reduce in a few days. You will be advised not to touch the area or apply make up for around 6 hours after your treatment so that the treatment area can settle.
Results are immediate and can last from 6-18 months, depending on the product used and your own response to the dermal filler, skin quality and general health lifestyle and absorption rate of the dermal filler over time. We do also offer longer-lasting fillers (up to 4 years); if you would be interested in these please bring them up at your no-obligation consultation.
