Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Brisbane

Nose filler (also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty) is a treatment used to make minor changes to the shape and structure of the nose. Treatment with dermal filler can be an effective alternative to surgical measures, with results lasting up to 24 months.

Our exceptional experience with dermal filler

Known for his extensive experience and work with cosmetic injectables, Dr. Scott Allison has refined his skills in using dermal filler to achieve optimal results. To perform a non-surgical rhinoplasty, dermal filler can be strategically placed to change the shape of the nose, tailored to each patient’s unique features and personal preferences.

As the founder of Ascension, Dr. Allison trains all staff, ensuring that a high standard of care is maintained. Our staff at Ascension Clinic learn Dr. Allison’s refined techniques and maintain a high attention to detail, to perform high-quality treatments.

“The liquid rhinoplasty uses dermal filler to correct irregularities in the nose. In the right candidate, it can produce similar results to a traditional rhinoplasty, but without the same risks, cost and recovery of having a surgical procedure. It is an advanced technique and should only be performed by a qualified Cosmetic Physician who understands the anatomy of this area.” – Dr. Scott Allison.

What can we address with nose filler?

Asymmetry

We can address naturally occurring bumps, asymmetry, and irregularities after surgical rhinoplasty using a small amount of soft filler. Nose filler treatments performed after a surgical rhinoplasty must be done in consultation with your Plastic Surgeon.

The Ageing Nose

As we age, the upper jaw bone, which provides structural support for the nasal tip, experiences bone loss. The tip then begins to sag, and the width of the radix decreases. To rectify this, nose filler can improve support and elevate the tip’s projection.

Structure & Definition

Dermal filler can be used in the midline of the nose to improve a flat nasal bridge and the nasal frontal 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 the nose and create a more defined shape.

Benefits of a non-surgical approach with dermal filler

Nose filler treatments provide a non-surgical option, offering temporary results without needing permanent surgical alterations. By opting for this non-invasive approach, you have the flexibility to adjust the results in future treatment sessions, thanks to its non-permanent nature.

A personalised treatment plan will be developed, considering your preferences and distinct facial features. This means that patients can experience the procedure’s benefits based on their unique needs and preferences.

Pricing

Pricing for nose fillers varies based on individual needs, as the required dosages differ. Prices start at 1,200.

Your consultation at Ascension Cosmetic Medicine

During your consultation for nose filler treatment, we will thoroughly discuss your treatment goals, any concerns you may have, and your suitability for the procedure.

We’ll ask some questions about your medical history to help determine your eligibility for the procedure. Details such as previous surgeries, allergies, medications, and medical conditions are often discussed. These factors are crucial in assessing patient suitability for the treatment.

We will then assess your nasal anatomy, including shape, size, symmetry, and nose proportions. This assessment provides valuable insights to guide the treatment approach and predict the expected outcomes.

With a comprehensive understanding of your goals, concerns, and nasal assessment, we can outline the available treatment options, discuss the potential benefits and limitations of nose filler, and discuss alternative procedures, if applicable. This will allow you to feel well-informed and make an educated decision about whether or not you would like to undergo the treatment.

During your non-surgical rhinoplasty consultation, we will also discuss the possible temporary side effects, including swelling, bruising, and redness. We’ll also address the rare possibility of allergic reactions or complications, ensuring you understand the risks involved.

We can create a personalised treatment plan considering your unique features and needs. This plan outlines the recommended type of filler, injection technique, and the required number of sessions. It serves as a roadmap for the treatment journey. We will provide information on the expected timeline, including the duration of the results and the potential need for touch-up sessions.

We can then provide detailed instructions on preparing for the treatment, including any necessary precautions or restrictions. We will also go over the post-treatment care requirements and potential activities to avoid for a specific period.

It’s during your consultation that we can then estimate the cost of the treatment based on your treatment plan. Since we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach, costs can vary from patient to patient, and a consultation will allow us to accurately calculate your total costs, based on your personal needs.

The nose filler or non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure

The nose filler or non-surgical rhinoplasty treatment typically begins with applying a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. This helps minimise any discomfort during the procedure. After the cream has taken effect, one of our experienced nurses or Dr Scott Allison will carefully cleanse the nose.

Your injector will inject small amounts of dermal filler into specific areas of the nose using a fine needle. The filler and injection technique choice will depend on your treatment goals and the individual’s unique facial anatomy.

The filler is strategically placed to address the patient’s personal concerns, such as a dorsal hump, asymmetry, or a drooping tip.

The treatment progress will be carefully monitored, ensuring the filler is distributed evenly. Your injector may gently massage the treated area to help the filler distribute properly.

Some patients may only require one treatment session, while others may need multiple to work towards their aesthetic goals. This will be discussed during your consultation when creating your treatment plan.

After the treatment is complete, we will provide aftercare instructions. These instructions generally include avoiding touching or applying pressure to the treated area for a specified period and any other relevant post-treatment guidelines.

Following the procedure, it is normal to experience some swelling, redness, or mild bruising around the injection sites. However, these side effects typically subside within a few days to a week.

The results of the nose filler treatment are often immediate, though they may continue to improve over the following days as any initial swelling subsides.

Nose filler treatment results are temporary, and the duration of the results can vary depending on factors such as the type of filler used and individual metabolism.

Suitable candidates for nose filler treatments

Candidates should have realistic expectations and understand the limitations of non-surgical rhinoplasty. They should be in good overall health and free from active infections or skin conditions in the treatment area. Candidates need to have a stable mental and emotional state, as they need to make informed decisions and clearly understand the procedure.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty with nose filler is also suitable for individuals who prefer a quicker recovery than surgical options. It is a good alternative for those not ready or willing to undergo invasive surgery, as the results are temporary and may be adjusted or reversed.

 

Aftercare and results

Aftercare is a vital aspect of your nose filler treatment journey. One of the key recommendations is to avoid touching or applying pressure to the treated area. This helps prevent any displacement of the filler and allows it to settle in its intended position. We recommend refraining from touching your nose for 24 to 48 hours after your treatment.

As well as avoiding direct contact, applying a cold compress to your nose can be beneficial during the initial aftercare stages. Cold compresses help reduce swelling and alleviate any discomfort you may experience. Gently place a cold pack or a clean cloth soaked in cold water on your nose for short intervals. However, it’s important not to apply excessive pressure or keep the cold compress on for extended periods, as this can impact the filler’s distribution. It is also generally advised to avoid vigorous physical activities, excessive sun exposure, and excessive heat or cold for a few days.

As the days progress, it’s common still to experience mild swelling or bruising around the treated area. This is a normal healing process and should subside within a week or two. Sleeping with your head elevated for the first few nights following the treatment is advisable to minimise swelling. This helps improve blood circulation and reduce fluid accumulation in the nasal area.

Nose filler results are not permanent. Over time, the filler will gradually break down and be naturally absorbed by the body. The duration of the results can vary depending on factors such as the type of filler used and your metabolism. On average, nose fillers tend to last between six to 12 months. Consider scheduling follow-up appointments for touch-ups or repeating the treatment as needed to maintain your original results.

Risks and complications

Like any medical procedure, non-surgical rhinoplasty carries certain risks. Most patients experience temporary swelling that subsides within a few days. Discomfort, bleeding, and bruising are also possible.

Further risks of nose filler treatments can include the potential for an allergic reaction to the filler material, redness, infection, and rare complications such as those that occur if the filler is inadvertently injected into a blood vessel.

In rare cases in Australia, unintentional filler injection into a blood vessel has resulted in potential skin necrosis or visual loss.

This is why it is essential that an experienced and qualified injector, such as a nurse or doctor, performs the procedure, as they have a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy and underlying structures.

If there are any signs of complications, immediate dissolution of the filler would be required, so be sure to get in touch with the clinic immediately.
