The nose is the most prominent facial feature, therefore it has the most powerful impact on the overall aesthetic balance and impression of the face. Before going through surgical rhinoplasty, some patients try injectable rhinoplasty first; an effective non-surgical method that can augment the nasal bridge and reduce the appearance of a nasal depression.
This procedure involves using dermal fillers to smooth and improve the contours of the nose. Most dermal fillers are formulated with an anaesthetic for comfort. Injectable rhinoplasty normally takes less than half an hour. A consultation at epiclinic® will allow each patient to discuss all aspect of the procedure with an experienced doctor.
The best way to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for injectable rhinoplasty is to schedule a consultation with us. We will listen to your concerns and perform a thorough examination of your nose and medical history and suggest the most appropriate procedure. It is equally important that you have realistic expectations about what this procedure can and cannot do to address your cosmetic concerns.
Ultimately, patient suitability is determined during a consultation with a doctor.
The results after this procedure are subtle but significant. Because the nose acts as an anchor for the rest of the face, minor adjustments can make a huge difference in rejuvenating the face as a whole. It’s important to note, however, that injectable rhinoplasty can only achieve aesthetic results. Any functional problems including sinus or breathing difficulties need to be addressed through surgical rhinoplasty.
The downtime following injectable rhinoplasty is minimal compared to the surgical alternative. Some bruising, swelling and redness may appear straight after the treatment, though any side effects will often subside in a couple of days. Patients can return to their regular activities immediately after because any swelling and pain are minimal.
All side effects and potential complications will be explained to you by your consulting doctor.
