Liquid Rhinoplasty, AKA Non-Surgical Nose Job or Nose Filler
Liquid Rhinoplasty is a popular treatment for noses at our Kent and Sussex clinics.
The nose could be considered the “anchor” of the face, because it plays such an important part of the level of attractiveness.
Common nose issues that we see and treat at our clinic are Asian nose bridge lifting, disguising humps and dips, straightening the bridge, lifting nose tips and fixing asymmetries.
There are many areas on the nose that can benefit from injections.
Beauty of the Nose
Some people were born with great noses, and others were born with noses whose appearance could be improved. For those who weren’t born with the perfect nose, a non-surgical nose job can be used to improve the appearance.
Many anatomical features are important in the beauty of the nose: the nasofrontal angle, the width and height of the radix, the projection of all parts of the nose.
Asymmetries can be improved. Nose tips may be improved, and the angle of the columella may be changed.
NOSE FILLER CAN IMPROVE:
A Flat Nose Bridge
Often patients present with flat or low nose bridges. It is a simple procedure to inject dermal filler to lift the nose bridge
Skin of the Nose
Dermal filler or skin boosters can improve the skin of the nose.
The Shape of the Nose
The client will be assessed and the practitioner will have a discussion with the client about their anatomy, and how it can be improved.
The Nasofrontal Angle
The nasofrontal angle is an important one in beauty and can be improved with nose filler injections.
The Height and Width of the Radix
The radix is just above the bridge where bumps can be present. The radix may be improved with dermal filler.
The Projection of the Nose
The projection of any areas of the nose from the radix through the dorsum and the tip can be improved.
May be lifted and repositioned.
Bumps and Imperfections
May be disguised with dermal filler.
Symmetry of the Nose
Asymmetry of the nose is very common, and can be improved with dermal filler treatment.
The Columella-Labial or nasolabial angle is important in determining which way the nose appears to be pointing. The columella may be injected to alter this angle to make the appearance of the nose more upturned.
As we age, the nose changes, dermal filler may be used to reduce the age appearance eg by lifting the nose tip and widening the radix
What happens during the nose filler treatment?
The nose will be cleaned with alcohol prior to treatment and a numbing cream like EMLA or LMX will be applied.
Filler will be injected using a fine needle. A cannula is rarely used in the nose.
How long will nose filler last?
Every client is different and how long the filler will last is dependant on various things, such as anatomy, metabolism, age etc.
On average nose filler will need to be carried out every 12-18 months.
Nose filler injected at the bridge of the nose usually tends to last longer than filler in the tip.
What to expect after the nose filler treatment?
The effect of the dermal filler will be obvious immediately. There may be bruising, redness and swelling.
Most of the swelling from the dermal filler will have resolved by 2-3 days after the procedure. There may be a small amount of swelling for up to 2 weeks after the procedure.
We usually split treatments into two over two weeks for clients having filler to straighten the bridge. This is so we can account for swelling and to make sure the bridge is straight even once the swelling has gone down.
Nose Filler Aftercare
No makeup for 24 hours
No heavy exercise for 48 hours
Avoid face products for 24 hours
No spas or saunas for 1 week post treatment
If you wear glasses / sunglasses you may need to wear some gauze over the bridge of the nose for the first day.
RISKS / SIDE EFFECTS
Bruising occurs in a significant number of cases.
Swelling in the injection area will occur. The worst of it will last for approx 48 hours, but there may be a small amount of swelling for up to 2 weeks
Infection is a very rare complication, but always a possibility when the needle goes into the skin.
Necrosis (blood vessel being blocked, interfering with blood supply to the skin) is very rare. This could lead to scarring. Unfortunately the nose is more susceptible to this complication than other areas on the face eg cheeks and chin.
Blindness is a rare but devastating complication
Prolonged redness or facial capillaries in the area after injection: This can be permanent, but may resolve when the dermal filler dissolves. Very uncommon
Need for further treatment: Often when creating a nose bridge completely more than one treatment is required.
