Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe, effective and non-invasive alternative to surgical rhinoplasty. The non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure provides excellent cosmetic results with little or no pain and recovery time.
Surgical rhinoplasty is one of the most desired cosmetic procedures; however, many individuals are scared of the potential complications and the risk of unfavourable aesthetic results.
- Surgical Rhinoplasty
Surgery always carries inherent risks including scarring, infection, and anaesthesia complications. Risks associated with surgical rhinoplasty include:
- Unwanted or unexpected cosmetic results like pinched looking nostrils, too small nose, ski-jump nose, etc.
- Difficulty breathing through the nose
- Persistent swelling and numbness
- Collapsed cartilage
- Frequent nosebleeds
– Non-surgical Rhinoplasty
During the procedure, you are fully awake. You hold a mirror, and you are in complete control of the procedure’s results. A non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure does not cause persistent swelling or nosebleeds. There are no long-term scarring complications associated with the procedure, and the results are temporary.
The recovery process from surgical rhinoplasty generally lasts about two weeks, most patients go back to their regular activities several weeks following surgery. A splint will be worn over the nose during the first week after rhinoplasty surgery. Nasal congestion can last for around seven to ten days. Most swelling and bruising around the eyes dissipates in about two weeks. Cold compresses and pain medication and are required during recovery.
Most patients return to work on the same day as the procedure. The results are immediate. There is no significant pain or swelling. Try to avoid wearing heavy eyeglasses or sunglasses for at least two weeks following your non-surgical rhinoplasty, as the filler substance becomes integrated into the skin of the nose.
The results of surgical rhinoplasty are often optimal, however, whether the results are bad or good, they will always be permanent. Rhinoplasty surgery can result in under or over correction, with possible poor cosmetic effects. The end results can sometimes only be seen a year following surgery. While you’re waiting for the results to be visible, your nose may not look desirable, and the final result may be difficult to foresee.
A filler substance is used in a non-surgical rhinoplasty which is injected in small amounts in precise locations so that there is complete control over the contours and shapes created by the procedure. During the procedure at London Cosmetic Clinic from the Gold Coast, you will be asked to look at your nose so that you can give feedback — this means that you have complete control over the results.
The results are instant and normally last for about eight months to two years, depending on the type of filler. Because the results are temporary, alterations can be made as your face changes over time.
