Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Using Fillers
A proportionate nose is an aesthetically significant facial feature. However, while not many are willing to go under the knife to reshape their nose, there are a few who are apprehensive about how a permanent nose shape change might affect their face.
For all those, willing to undergo a cosmetic surgery for their nose, but either scared of the surgical process or undertake a permanent nose shape change, there is a new, non-surgical medical procedure, gaining popularity called Non-surgical Rhinoplasty with Fillers.
What can Non-surgical rhinoplasty with fillers do?
• Smoothen the flat nasal bridge (depressed dorsum).
• Straighten the nasal projection tip.
• Reduce the nostril size.
• Correct the nasal hump (saddle nose deformity).

In this non-invasive procedure, patients are given a topical cream or a local anesthesia before the filling. The anesthetic procedure may take 15 minutes and it numbs the nose. Then using a sterile syringe with hypodermic needle, the prepackaged fillers are injected at the precise nose locations. The fillers are injected as deep as the subcutaneous tissues. This procedure may take 15-30 minutes. The patients can leave the surgeon’s office in another 15 minutes after receiving post care instructions. They are free to do their usual, every day activities.
Choice of fillers
With the advancement in the field of cosmetic surgery, there is a wide range of choices available for fillers. The fillers are usually hyaluronic acid such as like Restylane and Juvederm or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse) or Silikon – 1000
An experienced surgeon who has thorough knowledge of the anatomy of the nose can make the right choice of filler depending on the patient’s nose structure, immune system and desired longevity of the treatment.

The effects of the procedure are evident immediately. Photos taken 30 minutes after the non-surgical rhinoplasty with fillers reveal an aesthetic nose. The results however are not permanent as in the case of nasal corrective surgery. The results last from nine months to two years unless you have a nose job done with Silikon 1000.One advantage of non-surgical rhinoplasty with fillers is that if you don’t like the new look of your nose, you can have your old nose back after 9 months – two years.
