Non-invasive cosmetic treatments offered at Cosmos Clinic in Melbourne such as “liquid nose jobs” are growing in popularity. And while it may only be a quick walk-in walk-out procedure, but preparing for your non-surgical nose job is still important.

How to prepare for your liquid nose job in Melbourne

From understanding the procedure and the dermal filler injectables used to knowing how to maintain your results, our Cosmos Clinic team want to help answer all your questions and help you prepare for your non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure in Melbourne, Australia.

Here, we talk about what you should consider before your procedure, when to schedule it and what you can expect during your treatment.

Before your non-surgical nose job procedure

Cosmos Clinic Melbourne patients interested in a non-surgical nose job will be required to attend an initial consultation.

A health questionnaire will be undertaken and a physical examination of your nose and facial features. Your desires and expectations of the procedure will be explored to help determine if non-surgical rhinoplasty is the appropriate treatment for your cosmetic concerns.

In the event, you’re wanting significant changes to the shape of the nose including the nasal bridge or nose tip, surgical rhinoplasty may be recommended. In this case, you may be referred to a plastic surgeon for this procedure.

During your initial consult, the cosmetic surgery team will discuss the procedure, explaining the benefits and risks of injectables. Time will be taken to answer any questions you may have.

Some common questions you may want to ask:

  • Can I see some before and after photos?
  • What type of dermal fillers are used?
  • What is required for my recovery and how long will it take?
  • Beyond bruising and swelling are there any other common side effects?
  • How long will the results of the cosmetic procedure last?
  • Do you have any post-treatment aftercare recommendations?

Scheduling your non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure

We have many people enquiring about dermal filler appointments, including non-surgical rhinoplasty, before a big event such as a wedding or milestone birthday.

While this cosmetic procedure itself requires no downtime and patients can return to work immediately, it may be advisable to plan your treatment a month or two in advance in case of bruising.

This also gives you the opportunity to avoid any medications, supplements or herbal remedies that many thin your blood and increase the risk of bruising or swelling. Please note, this should be down under the advice of your general practitioner and discussed at your initial consultation.

On the day of non-surgical nose job procedure

So it’s the day of your non-surgical nose job at Cosmos Clinic Melbourne. How should you prepare?

The truth is, unlike cosmetic or plastic surgery, there isn’t a lot you need to do in the lead up to your procedure.

You’ll be advised to avoid certain medications including over the counter analgesics such as aspirin or ibuprofen. You may also want to avoid supplements containing vitamin E, garlic and ginseng which may increase your risk of bruising.

Once ready for the non-surgical nose reshaping procedure, topical numbing cream will be applied to the treated areas. You may also be provided with an ice pack to minimise any discomfort.

The dermal filler injections will be strategically placed into the marked up areas to improve the nose shape and enhance the natural beauty of your facial features.

The total time of your filler treatment can be as little as 30 minutes and your results, instantaneous. Some minor redness and tenderness may be experienced, but no downtime will be required. You can resume your daily activities and return to work immediately.
