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 allows patients to see how reshaping could help improve their facial appearance.
An Injectable Rhinoplasty is used to:
This procedure involves using dermal fillers, most commonly hyaluronic acid based fillers are used to smooth and improve the contours of the nose. A consultation at epiclinic® will allow each patient to discuss the pros and cons of the treatment before the procedure. Injectable rhinoplasty normally takes less than half an hour and no anaesthetic is required. It’s also an excellent alternative for individuals who are considering revision rhinoplasty.
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 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.
The results after this procedure are subtle but effective. 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. Because the tissue surrounding the nose is sensitive, these surface bruises are likely to occur and shouldn’t be a concern. Patients can return to their regular activities immediately after because any swelling and pain are minimal.
