Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty: Things To Know Before Treatment

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty: Things To Know Before Treatment

If you’re interested in cosmetic facial treatments, you might have heard of ‘non-surgical rhinoplasty.’ This refers to a procedure that can alter the shape and appearance of the nose using less invasive methods than surgery. The treatment can suit people who wish to alter their nose shape or size but without the extensive recovery process of a surgical rhinoplasty.

Before you make a decision about any cosmetic treatment, it’s important to consider what it will entail and the risks involved. In this article, we will discuss various aspects of this treatment, including how to candidates, aftercare, risks, and other things to be aware of. Read on to learn all you need to know about non-surgical rhinoplasty or contact Skin Confidence Clinic in Brisbane to speak with a professional.

What is non-surgical rhinoplasty?

The first thing we will address is: What is a non-surgical nose treatment? It’s a cosmetic volume treatment that should only be performed by a trained practitioner. It is non-surgical, which means it doesn’t involve any incisions or stitches.

The procedure involves creating volume in certain areas of the nose according to the patient’s aesthetic ideals. This volume is created beneath the dermis (skin), which means it does not form part of the permanent structure of the nose and will fade over time. For patients who want permanent changes to their nose structure, the surgical route may be a better option.

The following are some key things to consider if you are thinking about getting non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Things to know about non-surgical rhinoplasty:

Who is a candidate?

Candidates for this procedure are generally in good health and understand what’s involved in the before, during, and after of the treatment. A candidate is also someone who wishes to adjust the appearance of the nose by adding volume to certain areas. They should understand the risks involved and have realistic expectations for what their procedure can achieve.

Some patients may have cosmetic concerns about a surgical rhinoplasty they have undergone in the past, and they may not wish for a revision surgery. In such cases, our practitioners at Skin Confidence can help address the issue non-surgically. If you’re unsure whether you’re a candidate, it’s always best to consult our doctor by seeking a private consultation.

What does the procedure achieve?

It’s important to know that non-surgical rhinoplasty does not reduce the nose. Instead, it increases volume. This doesn’t necessarily create an overall larger nose, but it can create volume in areas where it is lacking in order to address certain cosmetic concerns. These concerns may include:

  • A dip or divot in the nasal bridge
  • A low nasal bridge
  • Nose bumps or other irregularities
  • Issues from a previous surgery

What does the procedure NOT achieve?

The treatment is not for people who want to reduce the size of their noses. If you are concerned about a large hump or wide nostrils, for example, the procedure may not be for you. Only a surgical procedure can reduce the size or shape of the nose (rather than increasing it in certain areas).

The best way to find out if you’re a candidate is to consult a professional for guidance unique to your situation.

How long does it last?

The procedure outcomes are generally long-lasting but not permanent. There are no changes to the bone or cartilage of the nose, and this means the result will not last forever. Most patients find that it lasts for up to a year. After this, they may choose to undergo a follow-up treatment.

What’s involved in the recovery?

Compared to a surgical rhinoplasty, the recovery after a non-surgical treatment is minimal. This is because there are no incisions that need to heal. However, the nose will be sensitive, and you will need to care for your treatment site. Your clinician will give you some aftercare guidance to help your nose recover, for example:

  • Avoid rubbing or touching your treated area
  • Avoid extreme temperatures on your treatment area

What are the risks and side effects?

Although the procedure doesn’t have the risks associated with surgery, complications and side effects are possible even with non-surgical procedures. It’s expected that patients will have some swelling and minor bruising right after treatment, which may present some discomfort. This is normal and should resolve in a few days.

However, uncommon risks can also occur. This might include infection, poor results, ongoing pain, and vascular problems. If you have concerning symptoms, make sure to get in touch with a medical professional.

What are the results?

Slight changes to the nose can have a significant impact on its look, and, therefore, on a person’s overall facial appearance. On the one hand, this means the treatment is very versatile in altering the nose. On the other hand, it also means that results will vary and getting the exact outcome you want is never something your practitioner can guarantee.

Every person’s face and nose shape is unique. Therefore, what works for someone else’s facial appearance may not be the best option for you. Make sure that you discuss your goals and facial proportions with your clinician to ensure you’re on the same page about potential results.
