Non-surgical Nose Correction
Non-surgical nose correction, or a non surgical nose job, is the only method available to reshape the look of your nose without the need for a scalpel. Because of its fast treatment, minimal risk, and long-lasting results, this cosmetic procedure is becoming more and more popular each day and is quickly overtaking the use of traditional plastic surgery.
While there are some limitations to what the non-surgical nose job can do (such as altering bone structure, or correcting air flow), there are many cosmetics issues that patients can have easily resolved using only a few fine injections. Non-surgical nose correction works by using a variety of dermal fillers to restore volume to certain areas of the nose. Because the nose is so important in facial aesthetics, even the smallest subtle changes can have a huge difference on your overall look. Non-surgical nose correction is used primarily to resolve nasal bumps and nasal asymmetry, but it can also treat downward pointing noses, and help ease the appearance of broad nasal bridges. Using only a series of quick injections, it is possible to smooth out any areas of the nose and change how the nose projects from the face.
Many patients that want a nose alteration do not have the three weeks of downtime required for the surgery. With this non-surgical nose job, not only can the painful and uncomfortable recovery be avoided, but you can get a taste of the results should you wish to undergo more permanent cosmetic surgery later. In traditional rhinoplasty, a number of factors can contribute to whether the nose will turn out ideally, and if there is an unsatisfactory result, the wait-time before it can be operated on again can be over a year. The non-surgical nose job is both a great preview and a great alternative, free of anesthesia, the need for surgical clearance, and the risks of bleeding or infection.
The injectable filler of choice for non-surgical nose correction is Radiesse®. Radiesse is a 100% biodegradable product derived from a protein compound found naturally in the body. For this reason, it will not be rejected and there is no need for allergy or immune testing. As a plus, Radiesse has been found to last almost twice as long when injected into the nose when compared to other areas of the face; this may be due to cartilage structure that makes up the majority of the nasal shape, which prevents the fillers from dissolving. Radiesse is designed to boost collagen production, which will actually leave your skin looking smoother and more vibrant.
