Medical rhinoplasty is a nose reshaping procedure that does not involve surgery. This technique uses filler(mainly hyaluronic acid) injections to correct defects or improve the appearance of the nose. The procedure can take place in the practitioner’s office. Most hyaluronic based products include local anesthetic, which avoids the need for a anesthetic cream before the injections and shortens the process.
Medical rhinoplasty is an excellent technique to provide volume where needed, which is an augmentation rhinoplasty.
Hollows in the nasal root
Hollows in the root of the nose are an excellent indication. Hyaluronic acid can easily raise the nasal root and create a harmonious angle between the forehead and the nose. Results are excellent in those cases.
Nasal humps can mislead patients,which is why the surgeon’s assessment is essential. In each case, the nasal tip has to be balanced with the corrected nose, which can require an improvement in projection.
Deviated noses are often the result of a cartilage asymmetry with no real deviation of the nasal septum. In those cases, hyaluronic acid (HA) injections can correct the nose ridge by filling in hollowed areas. The non-surgical technique offers moderate improvements compared to surgery. This is because in most deviation cases, part of the nose is excessively projected outward, which requires repositioning at the center with osteotomies. Be that as it may, HA injections can help improve the deviated appearance of the nose.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty benefits
- Immediate and reversible results
- HA does not cause adverse reactions
- Medical rhinoplasty is an excellent alternative for patients who do not want to go through surgery.
- The treatment can adapt over time in order to correct defects as the nose ages.
