When do we recommend Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is a procedure whereby a nose’s appearance is changed with the application of either a Dermal Filler, also known as a Tissue Filler, embedded Threading or a combination of both treatments.

The treatments either alone or in combination are offered to patients who:

  • Do not like the shape or appearance of their nose
  • Have undergone prior surgical rhinoplasty and are unhappy with the results
  • Have a nasal appearance typical of an ethnic group and wish to change it
  • Have had trauma to the nose and surgery may not be an option.

 Patients will describe their nose as:

  • Too narrow
  • Too pointed
  • Skew
  • Is too short or too long
  • Has a hump or bump
  • Having a ski slope appearance
  • Unbalance where the bony and cartilaginous or soft parts are out of balance
  • Being too wide either at the bone area or where the cartilaginous area is too broad.

 The Tissue Filler is used to enhance the appearance of the nose by attending to all these issues except the width or size of the apertures of the nostrils. This indication is taken care of with the embedded threading. Often a combination of the two treatments will achieve the desired effect and your clinician at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre will guide you accordingly.

The ultimate effect is to create balance in the nose itself and harmony with the rest of the facial structure. The treatments are highly effective in achieving this without the risks and downtime associated with surgical rhinoplasty.

 How does it work?

Once numbing cream has been used to numb the skin for enough time, our Physician will inject the Tissue Filler into the area of the nose that needs reshaping. The use of Tissue Filler in the nose requires an artistic eye to create the correct shape for each different patient. There are very few tissue fillers that should be used on the nose.

With Threading, a thin thread is placed under the skin and through the soft or cartilaginous part of the nose to narrow the opening of the nostrils. In doing so, the opening changes from a flattened to a more rounded appearance and the effect may also lift the tip of the nose. Tissue Filler’s are invaluable in this instance to give the nose overall balance. The results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are visible immediately. There may be a small amount of swelling and bruising, but this settles within a short period of time.

 What are the possible side effects?

Slight swelling may occur at the injected site, but most patients return to their normal routine immediately. There is a minimal amount of pain experienced post procedure. Ladies can reapply make-up immediately, so no one ever needs to know that a treatment was performed. The longevity of the results is dependent on many factors, including your age, the area injected, the quantity of product used, the nature of the actual product used as well as your overall health and lifestyle. *

Tissue Fillers

Most soft Tissue Fillers are either Hyaluronic Acid, or collagen based. Both are naturally occurring substances in the body.  Hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance, is injected below the skin in areas that need plumping and filling, to temporarily reverse sagging, hollowness, and lines and wrinkles, by adding volume and hydration the skin. The result is an immediate improvement in the appearance of deep wrinkles and facial folds and so a more youthful and radiant appearance, which can last up to a year. Lips can be redefined and plumped up, noses reshaped and subtle changes made to facial imbalances and imperfections with the use of soft tissue fillers as well. Read More
