The secret of natural attractiveness is the harmony of each element of the individual's face. Although personal tastes and preferences may differ, it may be necessary to change the shape of the nose in order to capture the aesthetic foundations that apply to all ethnic origins and cultures, and to achieve balance and harmony in facial features.
The nose has an undeniable importance in the appearance of the individual due to its position in the centre of the face. Nose filling, which has come to the fore in recent years as an alternative to rhinoplasty surgery, which is one of the most frequently performed aesthetic surgery procedures today, is considered the fastest and most effective way to eliminate many nasal defects.
Nasal filling, also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty, allows changes in the nose to be made without surgical intervention.
What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, ie nasal filling; It is a medical aesthetic procedure based on the injection of dermal fillers in order to redefine and reshape the nose, hide the swelling in the nose and correct the shape of the nose. Nasal filler is a safer and non-invasive alternative to rhinoplasty, so it is frequently performed.
Nasal filling is the fastest, most effective and comfortable method that can be applied to achieve the desired appearance of people who are not satisfied with the shape, appearance or size of their nose. However, nasal filling is an effective method for the elimination of minor defects in the nose. It is not a suitable treatment for people who have serious size or shape problems in their nose or who have nasal congestion.
Who is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Suitable for?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be applied to selected patients whose nasal development is completed and whose nasal filling is sufficient for the desired changes in the nose. The most suitable candidates for nasal filling are people with a slight arch in the nose, a drop in the tip of the nose and a slight curvature in the nose. In addition, non-surgical rhinoplasty can also be performed on people who have undergone rhinoplasty, that is, rhinoplasty surgery, but who need revision rhinoplasty to make some minor corrections after surgery. Nasal filling is considered an effective solution to camouflage the defects in the nose or to add volume to areas with tissue loss.
If it is desired to reduce the nose, remove severe bumps or excessive curvatures, nasal filler injection does not provide the desired result. Therefore, people who will undergo nasal filler injection are examined in detail and the decision of suitability for non-surgical rhinoplasty is made in line with the results of the examinations performed.
How is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Performed?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a procedure applied by dermal filler injection to the target area in the nose. Local anesthetic cream is applied to the application area and the area is expected to become numb. Within the scope of non-surgical rhinoplasty, which usually takes 10 to 15 minutes, dermal filler is injected into the points determined specifically for the patient.
The results obtained after the rhinoplasty procedure are not permanent. How long the results will be permanent may vary depending on factors such as which filler material is used, injection technique, injected dose and structural characteristics of the patient. Although it may vary individually, generally the results obtained after nasal filling maintain their permanence for 1 to 2 years.
Recovery Process After Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Care should be taken not to rub the nose and not to make any physical contact with the nose for 24 hours after non-surgical rhinoplasty, ie nasal filling. Care should be taken to be sensitive in touching the nose and around the nose for 3 days after the nasal filler injection. Similarly, hot shower, Turkish bath and sauna should be avoided during this period. Direct sun exposure and heavy sports movements should be avoided. In addition, care should be taken not to smoke, drink alcohol, caffeinated drinks, aspirin and blood thinners. If the nasal filling area is close to the nasal bridge, glasses should not be worn for the specified period.
