Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Nose filler (also known as the non-surgical rhinoplasty) is a treatment used to make minor enhancements to the shape and structure of the nose. As the central point of the face, the nose plays an important aesthetic role and is often a source of frustration for patients who have lived with asymmetrical elements or are experiencing age related changes.

Non-invasive rhinoplasty can be an incredibly effective alternative to surgical measures and has minimal to no downtime with results lasting up to 24 months.

What we can enhance

ASYMMETRY

Using a small amount of soft filler, we can address naturally occurring bumps and asymmetry as well as irregularities after surgical rhinoplasty, this would need to be done in consultation with your Plastic Surgeon.

THE AGEING NOSE

As we get older bone is lost from the upper jaw bone which is the structural support for the nasal tip. As a result the tip starts to droop and the width of the radix reduces. This can be corrected with nose filler to add support and raise the tip projection.

STRUCTURE & DEFINITION

Dermal filler can be used in the midline of the nose to improve a flat nasal bridge, and the nasalfrontal angle of the bridge when viewed side on. This is a commonly sought after feature in Asian patients.

We can also increase the projection of the tip of nose and create a more defined aesthetic.

Dermal filler FAQs

What type of filler?

The amount of filler depends on the degree of correction required, however a typical amount would be 1mL of filler per side of the jaw (so 2mL in total). In this area a higher density filler is used to mimic bone. This enhances structure of the jaw so that skin and soft tissue can sit more naturally over the bone.

Pain relief during procedure

Pain is very minimal during the procedure. Topical anesthetic can be used, but is very rarely required.

The jawline filler procedure

For jawline filler a combination of sharp tip needle and cannula is used to slowly build and shape the jawline.

Possible side effects

As with any medical procedure there are some risks to consider. Most patients will have some degree of swelling associated with this treatment, but this will settle over the following few days. There may be some discomfort, bleeding or bruising. There have been cases in Australia of vascular injury whereby filler is inadvertently injected into a blood vessel. It is very rare but if it occurred could lead to necrosis of the skin or visual loss. A thorough knowledge of facial anatomy and safe injecting techniques can greatly minimise this risk, however if any signs were to occur the filler would need to be dissolved immediately.

Recovery

There is minimal (if any) recovery for this procedure. As the filler is placed deep on bone, it would be rare that there would be bruising or swelling associated with the procedure.

After care

No makeup or lipstick for 4 hours. No exercise for the next 24 hours. Avoiding alcohol that evening will minimise any bruising. Applying ice will also help with swelling and bruising. No swimming for one week.
