Non-Surgical Nose Augmentation With Dermal Fillers
To fill out a nose that is underdeveloped, non-surgical solutions in the form of dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Versa may be sufficient to do the trick. These fillers may be used to widen a nasal bridge that looks too narrow or nostrils that appear underdeveloped. A combination of fillers applied to the nose as well as to the cheeks may also produce a more harmonious and proportional facial contour.
How Is the Nose Dermal Filler Procedure Performed?
To reduce the possibility of any discomfort during the procedure, a topical numbing agent will be applied to prepare the treatment area so that you won’t feel the injections. Dr. Bachilo will typically use a combination of dermal filler injections to increase volume and definition in specific areas of the nose in order to sculpt the desired results. Dr. Bachilo can help you determine which combination of treatments is best suited to your needs, based on your aesthetic goals, skin type, and other factors.
While the procedure is not particularly painful, you may experience temporary swelling, redness, and soreness in the treatment area for a few hours following treatment. You may alleviate any discomfort by applying ice packs to the treatment area and taking over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol. You must also avoid rubbing or handling the nose for several days, and protect the nose from impact for several weeks.
What Can Nose Fillers Achieve?
While a nonsurgical nose job cannot reduce the actual size of the nose, it can improve the overall appearance of the nose by bringing the bridge and tip of the nose into better balance. A non-surgical rhinoplasty can correct such conditions as an asymmetrical tip, a ski slope nose, a nose with bumps in the ridge, a nose with undefined or flared nostrils, a nose that is too flat or too thin, and various other concerns that you may wish to correct in the appearance of your nose.
How Long Do Results Last?
The non-surgical nose job is a temporary procedure, and results may last anywhere from about six months to as long as two years, but for most patients, results will last between 12-18 months, depending on the products used in the treatment. Repeat treatments will be required in order to maintain optimal results.
