One of the most popular ways to reshape the nose without getting cosmetic surgery is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty or liquid nose job. It involves injecting hyaluronic acid fillers to correct the flaw. It is a minimally invasive method for a nose bump removal or if you want to alter the height of the nose or enhance the look of the nostrils.
If you are considering it, here are 6 essentials factors that you need to think about:
Your purpose is the best motivation to undergo the process. It is important to clarify your reason and expectations because Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty comes with certain limitations compared to the traditional surgical method. It does not allow drastic alteration of the nose shape, improve its functionality, or minimize the size of the nose tip. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is ideal for enhancing the appearance of a crooked or wide nose, camouflaging a dorsal bump on the nose bridge, or reshaping the tip of the nose.
Risks and Side Effects
Like other cosmetic procedures, there are certain risks that you need to know about this procedure. They may include slight swelling of the nose, bruising, tender to the touch, nausea, or filler migration (the injectable moves to other parts of the nose or under the eyes, causing an overfilled appearance.)
The problems usually occur when the dermal fillers are not properly injected, you do strenuous activities right after the procedure, or forget to take the recommended post-treatment medications. It is also best to avoid wearing heavy sunglasses or eyeglasses during the recovery time to prevent unbalancing the treatment or experiencing mild to severe pain.
In rare cases, there is a possibility of adverse reactions like infection, necrosis, minor to severe deformities, vascular complications, or skin damage. It is therefore important to speak to the doctor if you experience blurred vision, hives and other allergic reactions, fever, and bruising or redness that is getting worse.
Dermal fillers to use
You have the option to choose the type of dermal filler for your non-surgical nose job. Hence, the necessity to gain a complete understanding of the procedure. There are available synthetic and natural fillers to choose from. But a lot of cosmetic professionals and surgeons suggest using the natural dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid because they dissolve over time, are reversible, and highly effective.
Efficacy of the procedure
Non-surgical nose contouring or reshaping result is not permanent. Although it yields your desired outcome almost immediately, the dermal fillers do not hold the shape for a long period. The result typically lasts for six to twelve months only.
This procedure is only a short-term solution that works great for minor adjustments, like filling an area that is slightly curved to create an illusion that the nose is straighter. It is also perfect for people who are afraid of the risks and do not look forward to the long recovery time of a surgical procedure. The recovery time of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is 1-3 days, and you can go back to your work right after the procedure.
And when there are complications or you hate the outcome, the hyaluronic fillers can be easily dissolved by injecting hyaluronidase to resolve the problem.
Compared to expensive cosmetic surgery, Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is cheaper. It is a good option for people who are still weighing the risks or saving up for a nose cosmetic surgery. It helps them see how the result looks like. The cost depends on the provider you select, the professional fee of the injector, the type of dermal filler, and the number of injections you need. This cosmetic surgery is also not covered by insurance.
Finding a provider
Look for certified professionals or cosmetic doctors with extensive experience and an impressive history of successful procedures. They know the inside out of the process, helping you become more familiar with the pros and cons of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty. Ask questions and explanations for some areas that are unclear to you. Safety is your foremost concern.
Have a shortlist of trusted and reputable providers with positive reviews from their clients. The success of this procedure greatly depends on the injector, so check their credentials. Don’t be tempted to choose the cheapest provider with questionable or little experience in the nose reshaping procedure. The experts in this field give a guarantee that they will deliver the desired outcome without downplaying the potential side effects and risks. You need to be one hundred percent sure that you will be in good hands, and you get the value of your money.
Remember that non-surgical rhinoplasty will only camouflage the irregularities of your nose, but will not alter its natural structure. The dermal filler will address the flawed area, which in turn contour your face, harmonize your facial features, and enhance the overall appearance. Before making a decision, make sure to understand the risks and complications. Once done, you can look forward to enjoying the benefits of a new and improved appearance.
