Every individual is interested in looking good and having a beautiful nose, and they are willing to undertake the procedure without giving much thought to it, only if it is non-surgical. The only way a nose could have been improved until recently was through surgery. It had its risks, and the fact that it was irreversible. More so, people viewed it as something that can be dramatically transformative, but surgery of the nose required a lot of finesse and training, and only a well experienced and trained Cosmetic Surgeon could provide an expected outcome.
Lately, Non-surgical or Non-invasive Rhinoplasty is being sought after by patients. This procedure involves the use of Hyaluronic Acid injections to augment areas of the nose. It can only be used when the nose looks flat and is ill-defined. It is more of a camouflage procedure where the discrepancies and depressions are improved by injecting fillers to get a defined nose. Dr. Mohan Thomas, Senior Cosmetic Surgeon, Cosmetic Surgery Institute, talks extensively about Non-Invasive Rhinoplasty.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is ideally suited for people who have a flat and a wide nose. A bulbous tip can also be defined by the non-surgical procedure. Depressions, deviations, and unevenness can be smoothened out with these non-surgical procedures. It is also very helpful in people who need minor touch-ups after nose surgery, or do not have time for recovery from surgery.
Dr. Mohan Thomas is of the opinion that, “Surgical Rhinoplasty is always the first and the safest choice to reshape the nose.The result obtained is permanent, and the shape looks natural. Non-surgical Rhinoplasty cannot reduce the size of the nose, cannot straighten a crooked nose, cannot improve breathing problems nor can it be done to address cleft lip nose deformity. We recommend this procedure only if the patient wants to augment the nose,does not have enough time for recovery, or is strictly against nose surgery. About 2-5 patients are offered this procedure every month, and after discussing the procedure in detail and acknowledging the need to repeat this every year, most of them decide to undergo Surgical Rhinoplasty”.
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty can be easily combined with non-surgical facial procedures to improve the overall look of the face. This procedure is not combined with any surgical procedure as it has to be done in the sitting position.
The usual time taken is about 45-60 minutes depending on the extent of improvement required. Once the area is marked, numbing cream has to be applied and left for about 30 minutes. This is then followed by filler injections to get the Non-surgical Rhinoplasty result.
The Pre-treatment measures include:
• To stop smoking if the patient is a smoker.
• If the patient is on blood thinners then they have to be stopped 5 days prior to injection under the guidance of the doctor who prescribed them.
• Any procedure if done on the nose should have completely healed before coming in for the procedure.
• If the patient has medical issues like Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, etc., then these should be under control before coming in for the procedure.
The chances of risks in a Non-surgical Rhinoplasty are small but very prominent. The usual concerns include bruising and swelling of the area where the injection has been made. Over-injection can give a lumpy look or a bump, which can be reduced by the dissolution of the filler. Touch up procedures may be required if the area has been underfilled. The greatest risk of Non-surgical Rhinoplasty is loss of vision, which is extremely rare.
