What You Need To Know About Non-Surgical Nose Job
Committing to a surgical rhinoplasty can be a challenge, both financially and emotionally. If you are not sure that a surgical nose job is a good choice for you, a non-surgical nose job might be the route for you. Non-surgical procedures are just that: not surgical. With the invention of injectable fillers, you could be able to achieve your desired result without going through surgery. This is what you need to know. #1. Non-surgical nose jobs are temporary. This means that you do not need to commit for the long term when deciding to change your nose. The injectable fillers dissolve slowly, wearing off over several months, up to two years. It is recommended that you come in for a new filler treatment before the previous one completely dissolves in order to maintain your desired appearance.
#2. The non-surgical route can correct several aesthetic concerns. The non-surgical procedure is highly effective when it comes to helping a patient who has a pronounced bump on the bridge of his or her nose. The injection will fill in the area surrounding the bump, resulting in the appearance of a completely straight nose. Additionally, non-surgical nose jobs can help crooked noses look straighter by removing any sharp angles and help lift the tip of droopy noses. The results can be subtle, but you will be amazed at what a difference it can make in your entire facial features. If the bump is too large or the nose is too crooked, however, injections may not be enough to achieve the desired result and a surgical rhinoplasty may be needed.
#3. The procedure is relatively quick. A non-surgical nose job can be done in as little as 15 minutes, meaning you can have one done during the day without taking a lot of time out of your schedule. Dr. Pirani will numb the area, inject the filler, and before you know it, you will be done and back to the rest of your day without interruption.
#4. A non-surgical nose job is relatively painless. On a pain scale, injectable fillers is at the bottom. Dr. Pirani will use a topical ointment to numb the area so you will not feel the injection themselves and the fillers will not cause much discomfort going in. The injections are really micro-droplet injections, meaning it is a small needle being used, limiting the amount of pain that you would have. Following the procedure, you may have mild soreness in the area, but you may also have no pain at all.
#5. The recovery is easy. The best thing about a non-surgical nose job is that it is something you can get done on your lunch break and head right back to work. There is a risk of light bruising and redness for a few days following the procedure, but is practically unnoticeable and will resolve quickly. The tip of the nose is the most sensitive area to have done, but even then the recovery is quick.
