What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Although the face is the most visible part of a person at first glance, the correction of deformities in this area is critical for both aesthetics and psychology. Due to medical advances and the discovery of new methods, much simpler surgeries can now be performed for rhinoplasty than in the past.
Nasal aesthetic applications, also known as rhinoplasty, can be an important requirement in terms of both aesthetics and health expectations. As a result of removing the defect on the face with an aesthetic procedure, the person can breathe more easily and achieve the desired nose. Also known as injection rhinoplasty or “15-minute rhinoplasty“, this non-surgical procedure is one of the preferred aesthetic procedures in recent years because of its low risk and low cost. There is less discomfort and disruption to daily life. It can be very comforting to hear that such an option exists for those who cannot afford the surgery, cannot afford the disruption of daily life caused by the surgery, or are really afraid of going under the knife. The following answers can be given to the question “What is non-surgical rhinoplasty“; While it cannot reduce the size of a large nose, it can make the nose appear smaller on the face by creating symmetry or correcting contour irregularities.
When it comes to “non-surgical rhinoplasty”, the results obtained with botox and fillers in the nose come to the fore. Both are non-surgical treatments used to treat various nasal problems. Although it can be effective alone in some patients, their combined use usually gives better results.
How is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Performed?
In order to achieve a smoother, more symmetrical appearance, a small amount of dermal filler such as Radiesse, Artefill, Juvederm or Silicone is injected into the areas that require filling for the “non-surgical rhinoplasty” procedure. The filler is injected in very small quantities using a technique known as the microdroplet technique. This is not a quick process because full results can be seen after several treatments lasting at least 4-6 weeks between sessions. Because of the way fillers work, this stepwise approach is necessary. After the injection, your body’s defenses begin to remove every microdroplet of filler material, creating a tissue capsule that holds it in place. As the natural tissue formed around the filler creates more volume in the area over time, the result cannot be accurately evaluated at the end of each injection session. Only after the specified time has passed can the doctor and patient determine whether and how much additional injections are necessary. This allows both the doctor and the patient to decide when enough is enough.
Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Safe?
It is performed under local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia. For those who have non-surgical rhinoplasty, this combined with the fact that there is no real incision makes this method less risky than a surgical rhinoplasty procedure. However, it does have some risks, which include:
- Hypersensitivity in the nose
- Lumpy, unsatisfactory and asymmetrical noses
- Nasal skin problems
- There are risks against silicone injection such as migration (transferring the applied silicone to a different part of the face) and granule formation.
There is no rule that these risks will be seen in every patient. These are risks that can be experienced even if they are very unlikely.
The Reason for Preferring Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a preferred procedure in cases where the deformity of the nose is not severe. In this method, also known as nasal filling, dermal filling is applied to the bridge of the nose. Non-surgical rhinoplasty applications, which are a very reliable option in the treatment of mild problems such as nasal tip droop, nasal contour problem, wrinkled nose appearance, nasal congestion, are relatively simple operations, but the products used for filling are completely aesthetic. Reliably the most widely used injectable gel-like filler is hyaluronic acid. After the injection, the dermal fillers that reach the skin layers of the skin in that area give the desired shape. Although it varies according to the process and the filling material used, the obtained appearance can last effectively from 4 months to 3 years. Compared to surgical rhinoplasty interventions, liquid rhinoplasty applications are quite simple procedures. In aesthetic applications where this method is used, in addition to giving a new appearance to the nose, the desired appearance can be obtained in congenital miscarriage or nasal tips that fall with age.
In Which Situations Shouldn’t Be Done Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty may not be a suitable method for everyone. Expert opinion should be taken and the decision should be made accordingly. In the following items, it is stated that it is not suitable for whom.
- It may cause the nose to appear larger in people with thick nasal skin.
- Those who do not have pits and belts at the nose-forehead junction,
- Those who have a long nose,
- It should not be preferred in cases such as those with a larger nose than their face.
Your doctor may say that nasal filling or nasal botox is not suitable for you, and rhinoplasty is a better option for you.
Botox Application in Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
- The tip of the nose, especially those that move downward while talking,
- My nose wings grew when I laughed.
In such cases, nasal botox loosens the muscles that do not work in many people with these movements, prevents the tip of the nose from being pulled down, and causes the tip of the nose to rise. The same effect is achieved by reducing the movement of the muscles that expand the wings, ensuring that the wings are more stable and not expanding, and reducing unwanted movements in the nose posture and shape.
Filling Procedure in Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
- Deterioration of the nose-forehead junction,
- Situations where the tip of the nose needs to be raised (it should be reconsidered for those considering nose surgery),
- Situations where the base of the nose needs to be supported,
- Defects on the back of the nose,
The purpose of nasal filling is to create smoother lines when viewed from the outside and to hide the bridge of the nose in general. The disadvantage of nasal filling is that it cannot be used in every patient.
“Laser rhinoplasty” is non-surgical rhinoplasty. The nose is shaped by injecting a laser into the nose. This procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete. It is not an anesthetic procedure.
- However, the age of the person,
- If the nose needs to be shaped, this procedure is not appropriate,
- If you have adenoid problem or other similar factors, laser rhinoplasty can be performed under anesthesia.
Generally, laser rhinoplasty is used to burn the adenoids to solve problems such as nasal breathing or sleep problems. It is done by surgeons who are experts in shaping. There is less pain and shorter recovery time. It is also much more cost-effective when compared to other known methods.
Advantages of Laser Rhinoplasty
Laser rhinoplasty has numerous advantages. These;
- Provides a rapid recovery period,
- There is no need for a major surgical procedure,
- Local anesthetic is used,
- A buffer is not needed,
- The patient’s hospital stay is shorter than other known nasal surgery methods,
- The complication rate is extremely low compared to other methods,
- The healing process of the patient’s thick skin tissue is rapid.
If the patient does not receive any blow to the nose after the surgery, the benefits of laser rhinoplasty are noticed. At the same time, the benefits of using the medicines and creams prescribed by the doctor in the healing process are also critical.
