Today, more and more patients tend to favor less invasive cosmetic treatments to correct aesthetic issues. This is the case for nose defects that can be corrected with no surgery, which can be done through what is called medical rhinoplasty. This procedure involves filler injections (hyaluronic based products are used in the vast majority of the cases) in specific areas to correct visible defects. Medical rhinoplasty can raise the nasal tip, erase nasal humps and improve facial profile. However, internal defects such as septum deviations cannot be corrected with this approach. Final results can last between 10 to 15 months. If you are planning on getting your rhinoplasty in Tunisia, this non-invasive approach is one of your treatment options.
How is medical rhinoplasty performed ?
The practitioner will perform a clinical examination in order to confirm the need for treatment. He will carefully examine the nose from a front and side view angle and listen to his patient’s request. For more comfort, an anesthetic cream can be applied on the nose a half hour before the injections. The procedure is approximately 30 minutes long and painless.
What precautions should I take before the procedure ?
This procedure is extremely safe and it has been used in the field of aesthetic medicine for many years. Most fillers are hyaluronic acid based products, which is a substance our boy naturally produces. Therefore, there is close to absolutely no risk of allergic reaction to this type of filler. The only precautions patients can take are avoiding taking blood thinning or anti-inflammatory medication, vitamin C and Omega 3 as those contribute to limit risks of post-treatment hematoma.
What precautions should I take after the procedure ?
The practitioner will check the result after swelling has resolved entirely, corrections can be made then if necessary. After their treatment, patients must avoid wearing glasses if those rest on the injection site. Even light pressure can cause the injected product to migrate where volume is not needed.
