The Ultimate Guide to Rhinoplasty

Going under the knife isn’t the only way of getting your nose reshaped. Depending on what look you are looking for, you can always opt for a nonsurgical procedure to get a nose job. You can get a bump concealed, or get a thinner looking nose without getting a permanent surgery.

How? Through nonsurgical rhinoplasty. Getting dermal fillers is the most effective alternative to invasive nose surgeries.

However, deciding to have a rhinoplasty shouldn’t be taken lightly. It is essential to educate yourself about the different options available and to understand the steps involved in the treatment. Most importantly, make sure you are doing this for yourself and not being pressured into by others. It is about how the results will make you feel.

If you want to know more about nonsurgical nose reshaping treatment in Belsize Park, West Hampstead, Harley Street, or other areas of London, then here are some crucial things to get you started.

1.     Conduct a Thorough Research before Treatment

Before getting any treatment done, the first step is to get as much information as you possibly can about it. The same applies to nose job treatment. It is crucial to have a clear idea of the procedure and the expectations you have from your advanced aesthetic practitioner.

It would be best if you determined what changes you want and what look you are hoping to achieve from the procedure. Keep in mind that you should also consider the recovery period. Even though nonsurgical nose reshaping has minimal downtime, it is still wise to take a few days off to rest in case of any swelling or bruising.

2.     The Initial Consultation

Before the treatment starts, there will be an initial consultation in which the practitioner will discuss the process and your expectations. All the paperwork will be done at this stage, and photographs of your nose will be taken during this meeting. Most importantly, you will be able to share your concerns regarding your nose with your practitioner. If you have any medical issues, then it is essential to let them know.

Your practitioner may show before and after treatment pictures of their patients that had similar concerns as yours. The next steps and the action plan will be explained to you in this consultation.

You must ask questions or discuss any issues or confusion you may have with your practitioner to make sure that the entire process goes smoothly, and you get the expected results. The cost of your nonsurgical nose job will also be discussed in this consultation meeting after the practitioner has determined the right treatment to help you achieve your desired results.

3.     What Happens During the Procedure?

A nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a painless procedure. The practitioner will inject dermal fillers into the problematic spots of your nose. You can get a more refined and thinner looking nose by getting fillers on the tip of your nose.

You will be injected with one or more dermal fillers to get the result you want. You may experience slight discomfort, as well as some bruising or swelling around the injected area. However, don’t be alarmed as the area will heal naturally after a few hours, and the bruising will subside within a few days.

The entire treatment completes within an hour, and in most cases, patients can resume their daily activities as usual.

4.     The Reveal

The reveal is not as dramatic as you might imagine. Since it is a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, your nose will still look natural without any apparent signs as the case with surgical rhinoplasty. It takes some time for some patients to adjust to the new nose as the difference becomes more evident to them gradually when the bruising and swelling, if any, subsides.

5.     Are the Results Long Lasting?

While the results of surgical rhinoplasty are permanent, the results from nonsurgical nose reshaping are temporary. Your results will last as long as the fillers are still intact – between six to twelve months.

The fillers start dissolving gradually, and the nose eventually returns to its natural shape. The dissipation of the dermal fillers is quicker for some patients but takes longer for others. You will have to get treatments yearly or after every two years to maintain the shape of your nose.

6.     Rhinoplasty Safety and Side Effects

Since this procedure is nonsurgical, it is entirely safe as long as you get it done by an advanced aesthetic practitioner. Typically the problems arise when an inexperienced practitioner performs the treatment.

Moreover, the fillers used in the procedure are biodegradable and biocompatible, which means they are not harmful to the body. Most of the dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid that is a gel-like substance. They naturally dissolve and are removed from the body.

The side effects are minimal and are injection-related, including bruising, swelling, tenderness, and redness. They are not severe and subside within a few days.

7.     What if you are not happy with the results?

One of the significant advantages of nonsurgical rhinoplasty is that the dermal fillers can quickly be dissolved by injecting an enzyme. In the majority of these treatments, the hyaluronic acid fillers are used. The enzyme dissolves these fillers through a process called hyaluronidase.

What does this mean? If you aren’t happy with the result, you can get the fillers removed instantly and get your natural nose back.
