Nose augmentation is a non-surgical correction of the nose by dermal fillers also known as liquid rhinoplasty. This is an aesthetic treatment gaining popularity, especially in women, due to social media and celebrity influence. It is a quick ‘lunchtime’ treatment that can be done in just ten to fifteen minutes with practically no pain. In this procedure, hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler is injected into the nose to temporarily improve its shape.
Being non-surgical there is minimal risk, downtime, and side effects. Yet it gives results comparable to surgical rhinoplasty which usually takes a month or longer to recover.
The injection is given above and below the ‘bump’ on the nose and we can very easily make the most ‘hooked’ of noses, look completely straight.
After cleaning the surface of the nose and the surrounding area, a thin needle or cannula is introduced to inject hyaluronic acid. We at Dr. Titoria’s Clinics use the most modern fillers that come as a combination with the local anesthetic. This makes the procedure quicker and painless. Once injected, molding or sculpting is done. Post-procedure instruction to not wear sunglasses for a few days is given. The entire process takes not more than10 to 15 minutes. The result is instantaneous and lasts as long as 12 to 18 months. With repeated treatments, the results can last further longer.
Dermal fillers used for nose corrections are very safe, biocompatible and biodegradable meaning its degradation is not harmful to the body and its removal from the body is natural.
Few people may develop some post-procedure mild side effects like redness, pain, swelling and bruising at the injection site, which usually resolves within 2 to 3 days.
