Our nose is our most prominent facial features as it lies in the center of our face and is one of the main areas of focus when communicating with others. Unfortunately, some asymmetries, disharmonies, past surgeries or injuries may draw unwanted attention. Many are unhappy with the appearance of their nose as a result of these issues, and may also include birth defects or even genetics. Here at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre in Calgary, AB, we offer a non-surgical nose job.
What is Nose Reshaping?
When people here the phrase “Nose Reshaping”, they automatically jump to rhinoplasty. However, not all nose enhancements are surgical. Dermal fillers can, by the skilled injector, reshape and contour the nose and in many cases correct the drooping acute angle of the nose. When fillers are used to alter the shape of the nose, this is known as nose reshaping, or a non-surgical nose job.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
You may be an ideal candidate for a non-surgical nose job if you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose but are hesitant to go under the knife. Patients looking to fix the size of the tip of their nose, straighten a hump, or balance out a curse on the bridge make good candidates.
Not every nose is amenable to the contouring effects of fillers within the confines of proper nasal proportion. The length, width and shape of the nose is determined by many factors; including genetics, ethnicity, past injury and surgery.
Benefits of Non-Invasive Nose Reshaping
Benefits of a non-surgical nose job include:
- Making the nose appear smaller
- Lifting tip of nose
- Create symmetrical appearance
- Fill scars on nose
- Straighten bump on bridge of nose
- No surgery – no scars or stitches
- Immediate results
In addition to improving the cosmetic appearance, re-creating the support and strut work of the external nasal values greatly improves nose breathing, and can improve snoring.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Before and After
Non-Surgical Nose Job Procedure
Dramatic improvement can be seen after only one treatment session. Topical numbing cream is applied prior to the treatments making the nose restoration project much less uncomfortable. A touch-up treatment may be recommended 4-6 weeks after the first session. Maintenance for the best improvement is minimal and many patients may not need a touch up for 2 years.
