Many patients with minor or less severe irregularities of the nose can have a non-surgical reshaping of their nose with a dermal filler injection, avoiding invasive surgery. Benefits include minimal discomfort and a safe, quick recovery with minimal downtime.
A non-surgical nose reshaping with dermal fillers is an excellent and affordable option for patients who would like to achieve a more pleasing appearance without the risks of a rhinoplasty.
Nose Contouring and Reshaping
In Gainesville, Dr. Allison uses dermal fillers injected into the skin of the nose to smooth humps and bumps to achieve a natural aesthetic appearance in a quick, safe and effective outpatient treatment.
Candidates for Nasal Dermal Fillers
Any person who would like a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure to improve the shape and contour of their nose quickly and with satisfying results is a good candidate for this procedure.
Non-surgical reshaping avoids the risks of surgery and has no affect on nasal breathing because it only involves injections into the skin. The procedure is very precise and detailed adjustments to nasal contouring are possible.
Non-surgical reshaping with dermal fillers can also be done in conjunction with a surgical rhinoplasty to “fine tune” the shape of the nose.
How the Procedure is Performed
An initial consultation with Dr. Allison will determine the goals and plans of the treatment to reach an ideal result for each patient. The procedure takes 20–30 minutes. Local anesthetic injection is used to assure minimal discomfort to the patient. The dermal filler chosen is then injected into the nose to improve the shape, profile, projection and symmetry with soft tissue augmentation.
What you can Expect Post Procedure
There is a small possibility of minor bruising which should subside after 1 week and your nose may feel tender for the first 3–5 days. You may see improvement immediately and any swelling will resolve in 1 week.
Depending on the dermal filler used, the results can last from 6-12 months. Repeat treatment is recommended every 12–18 months to maintain nose shape as desired.
