How does non-surgical rhinoplasty work?

How do I look? This is the most common concern in both males and females and this worry is increasing day by day. Increasing number of studies have shown how cosmetic procedures influence how patients see themselves, their self-confidence, and public interactions. Patients who have had a satisfactory cosmetic procedure tend to feel better about themselves and are happier.  Of course, facial attractiveness and youthfulness are unique to each person. The idea of an ideal face is long hair, large eyes, pink bow-shaped lips and a sharp nose.

The nose plays a vital role in enhancing beauty because it is the centre part of the face. It impacts both front and side profiles. The nose is something that first comes to notice when you meet somebody.  Whether you are born with a nose that does not accentuate the features of the nose or if your nose’s shape has changed because of ageing, deviated septum, injury, surgery or trauma, the shape of the nose is an increasing concern in men and women of all ethnicities. A prominent hump on the bridge of the nose can make your nose look hoked in the side profile. It can also make the tip of the nose look droopy. Grooves and indentations on the nose can also cause it to look unsymmetrical.

The basic cosmetic concerns of the nose can be corrected through nonsurgical rhinoplasty or liquid rhinoplasty. A nonsurgical nose job is the quickest, and simplest way to reshape and modify the shape of the nose. Liquid rhinoplasty does not actually or permanently change the size of the nose or change its actual size but it will make the nose straighter and defined and hence the nose looks smaller and better fit to the other features of the face.

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is done using a dermal filler that is injected into the tip and the bridge of the nose strategically to enhance the natural structure of the nose without making it appear unnatural. While it can provide temporary improvements to the nose’s shape and contour, it is important to understand the limitations and considerations involved. Non-surgical rhinoplasty may be suitable for individuals who:

  • Desire minor changes: non-surgical rhinoplasty is ideal for individuals who are looking for subtle changes or enhancements to their nose’s appearance. It can be used to address concerns such as minor asymmetries, dorsal humps, or minor irregularities.
  • Seek a non-permanent solution: Injectable fillers used in non-surgical rhinoplasty provide temporary results. If someone wants to test the desired changes or prefers a non-permanent option, a non-surgical rhinoplasty may be considered.
  • Wish to avoid surgery: non-surgical rhinoplasty offers a non-invasive alternative to traditional surgical rhinoplasty. It involves minimal downtime, no general anaesthesia, and avoids the risks associated with surgery.
  • Have realistic expectations: It is essential to have realistic expectations regarding the outcomes of non-surgical rhinoplasty. While it can address certain aesthetic concerns, it may not be able to correct severe nasal deformities or functional issues such as breathing difficulties.
  • Seek a reversible but long-lasting option: One advantage of non-surgical rhinoplasty is that the effects can be reversed. Injectable fillers can be dissolved if the individual is unsatisfied with the results or wishes to pursue a different treatment option. Fillers last comfortably from anywhere to six months to one year and are low maintenance.

Many people try to make the nose appear straighter and narrower with the help of makeup but makeup is very time consuming, costly and needs to be applied once or twice a day to keep the look intact. It is crucial to consult with a qualified cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon who specializes in non-surgical rhinoplasty. They can assess your specific concerns, evaluate your nasal anatomy, and discuss the available options to determine if non-surgical rhinoplasty is suitable for your needs. They can also provide guidance on the expected outcomes, potential risks, and limitations associated with the procedure.

More and more people are turning towards nonsurgical rhinoplasty because

  • Its non-invasive
  • It is quick and has minimal downtime
  • Gives immediate results
  • Can be reversed. Hyaluronic fillers can be dissolved using hyaluronidase.
  • Fillers are safe for the body as they are biocompatible and biodegradable and are naturally flushed out of the body as time passes.
  • There are no surgery related risks with liquid rhinoplasty and there is no scaring
  • Cost effective. Non-surgical rhinoplasty cost in India is much less than the surgical rhinoplasty. It typically involves lower medical fees, no hospitalization expenses, and avoids costs associated with anaesthesia or post-operative care.

Nonsurgical nose job is used to correct imperfections like dorsal hump, minor asymmetries, or irregularities in the nasal contour. It can help achieve smoother nasal profiles and enhance overall facial harmony but it cannot correct a deviated septum or a crooked nose.

How does nonsurgical rhinoplasty work?

In the past the fillers were made of hard substances like paraffine wax and silicone which felt firm to touch and often gave an artificial contour to the nose. But the modern fillers used today are made of better materials which mould to the skin in a real looking manner.

Before liquid rhinoplasty the surgeon will discuss your concerns regarding your nose and the things you want to change. The surgeon will examine your skin, its thickness and affects of ageing on the nose. They will do a pinch test to check skin laxity and determine the suitability of the fillers for the results expected. Liquid nose job is not done on pregnant and breastfeeding ladies and if you have any other medical condition then you should let your cosmetic surgeon know about it. The cosmetic surgeon will also take some pictures of the nose and the face for measurement and marking purposes.

The treatment procedure

During the nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure, the plastic surgeon will begin by cleansing the treatment area. A numbing cream will then be applied to your nose and allowed to take effect for a few minutes. Next, the surgeon will carefully mark the specific injection points on your nose for the fillers or threads.

Once the numbing cream has sufficiently numbed the area, the surgeon will use small injections to administer the fillers or insert and anchor the threads under the skin using a cannula-type syringe. This entire process takes only a few minutes, and you should not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

Top plastic surgeons prioritize the use of high-quality fillers and nasal threads for non-surgical rhinoplasty. Commonly used nasal fillers include Calcium hydroxyapatite, Hyaluronic Acid, Liquid Silicone, Polyacrylamide gel, and Polymethylmethacrylate. These options are chosen based on their safety and effectiveness in achieving the desired aesthetic results.

It’s important to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your specific goals and concerns regarding non-surgical rhinoplasty. They will be able to evaluate your individual case, recommend the most suitable fillers or threads, and provide personalized care throughout the procedure.

Here are the things that the nonsurgical rhinoplasty can help with

Dorsal Hump Correction: Injectable fillers can be used to camouflage a dorsal hump or bump on the nasal bridge. By strategically injecting filler above and below the hump, the profile of the nose can be smoothed out, creating a straighter appearance.

Nose Tip Enhancement: Non-surgical rhinoplasty can address concerns related to the nasal tip. Injectable fillers can be used to refine and reshape the tip, adding volume or definition. This can help create a more lifted, defined, or balanced tip.

Nasal Bridge Augmentation: Injectable fillers can be used to augment or enhance the nasal bridge. By strategically injecting filler along the bridge, the appearance of a higher or straighter bridge can be achieved, improving overall nasal aesthetics.

Correcting Asymmetry: Non-surgical rhinoplasty can help address minor asymmetries of the nose. Injecting fillers in specific areas can help create a more symmetrical appearance by balancing out uneven contours or proportions.

Non-Surgical Tip Rotation: Injectable fillers can be used to adjust the rotation of the nasal tip, providing a subtle upturn or downturn as desired.

Who cannot get a non-surgical nose treatment

While non-surgical rhinoplasty offers several advantages, it may not be suitable for everyone. The procedure has limitations and cannot address significant structural changes or correct functional issues with the nose. If you are looking for permanent changes in the appearance of the nose then a surgical rhinoplasty will be a better option for you. For example, the dermal fillers can augment the nose tip but cannot reduce the size of the bulbous area. also, fillers cannot reduce the width of the nostrils or pick up a heavily plunging nose because of the thickness of the nose in that area.

Recovery and Results

The results post nonsurgical nose job are instantaneous but you should wait for a few days for the bruising and swelling to settle down to see the full impact of dermal fillers in the nose. In the meantime

  • Avoid wearing sunglasses on the nose as it may disrupt the filler placement
  • No touch or press the treatment area
  • Avoid activities that can cause trauma to the nose
  • Take it easy for a few days post the treatment i.e., avoid jumping, bending etc. to give the fillers the time to settle in.

However, it’s important to note that the price of a non-surgical nose job in Mumbai includes not only the surgeon‘s fees but also the facility fees. Additionally, the specific type of fillers used can also impact the overall cost. In India, the pricing for filler and thread rhinoplasties may differ. To get a clear understanding of the complete pricing, it is recommended to discuss it with your surgeon. They will be able to provide you with detailed information about the costs involved and can also guide you through various payment options available.
