There are plenty of reasons why non-surgical nose jobs using dermal fillers are on the rise in Sydney with impressive results, no downtime and affordability at the top of the list. The cosmetic nose reshaping procedure also has reduced risks when compared to the more invasive rhinoplasty procedure, but there are still things you should consider before booking in for the treatment.
5 things to consider before a non-surgical nose job
Here are 5 things you should contemplate before deciding if a non-surgical rhinoplasty at our Sydney Cosmos Clinic is right for you.
Your desires for a nose job
Like many cosmetic treatments, a non-surgical nose job is designed to improve the natural appearance of your nose so that enhances your facial features. When considering nose reshaping using dermal fillers, it’s important you clarify your desires and expectations for the procedure as it does come with some limitations when compared to traditional rhinoplasty.
Using dermal fillers, the non-surgical nose job cosmetic procedure can enhance the appearance of several aspects of your nose including:
- Increase the height by correcting a flat bridge
- Enhancing the symmetry of your facial features by correcting a slightly off-centre or crooked nose
- Camouflaging a bump or hook on the bridge of the nose
- Balance the size of the nose in comparison with your other facial features
- Refine the shape following rhinoplasty plastic surgery
If you are looking to drastically alter your nose shape, reduce the size of the tip of the nose or improve the functionality of your nose, you may need to consider plastic surgery instead.
The type of dermal fillers used
When considering a non-surgical nose job, it’s important to gain a full understanding of the cosmetic procedure including the types of dermal fillers used.
There are a variety of natural and synthetic dermal fillers used for non-surgical procedures, including nose reshaping. Some of the more common injectables include Restylane, Juvederm and Aquamed. Cosmos Clinic recommend using a natural dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid for non-surgical nose jobs.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are not only effective but they are naturally dissolved by the body and can be reversed in the event of overcorrection or a change of mind. In comparison, synthetic semi-permanent fillers last longer but are harder to alter and the dermal filler substance remain in the body.
The impermanence of dermal fillers
Dermal fillers, whether for nose contouring or anti-wrinkle treatment, don’t last forever. The results of a non-surgical nose job typically last between 18-24 months whereas rhinoplasty surgery results are permanent. This means in order to maintain the new appearance of the nose, patients will require touch-ups in the future.
The impermanence of dermal fillers may deter you from booking a non-surgical rhinoplasty if you desire longer-lasting results. However, there are benefits. Firstly, as small amounts of dermal filler are used at one time, you can contour the nose until the desired appearance is achieved. Secondly, in the event the nose is overcorrected or you change your mind and fall back in love with your unique hump, you can allow the nose filler to naturally dissolve.
The experience of the Sydney cosmetic clinic
The experience of the Syndey cosmetic clinic and the injector is vital to ensure your safety and the overall results of your non-surgical nose job.
When enquiring with a cosmetic surgery clinic about any cosmetic procedure, do your due diligence. Request thorough explanation of cosmetic treatment, ask to see before and afters and check their credentials.
The risks and side effects of cosmetic surgery
With any cosmetic surgery procedure, there are risks involved, however, some will have greater than others. An injectable nose job negates the need to go under the knife, instantly reducing the risks and side effects.
However, if the dermal fillers are not injected properly there can be complications. There can also be side effects if you don’t follow the treatment recommendations such as taking blood-thinning medications like Asprin or taking part in strenuous exercise immediately after your treatment.
