Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Definition and Benefits

The need to improve a part of the face from an aesthetic point of view leads to the birth of new procedures or surgical methods. Among them is non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Among various cosmetic procedures, non-surgical rhinoplasty has several advantages in improving the shape of the nose without surgery. In particular, the procedure using hyaluronic acid filler is relatively simple.

Although hyaluronic acid fillers have their risks and limitations, they can help correct the shape of your nose.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Definition and Purpose

Non-surgical rhinoplasty or ‘rhino modeling’ is a combination of rhino (nose) and modeling. In other words, it is a procedure that corrects various aesthetic problems by reshaping the nose without surgery.

For this purpose, the most commonly used filler for injecting filler is hyaluronic acid. The purpose of non-surgical rhinoplasty is as follows.

  • resizing
  • Nose bridge improvement
  • nasolabial fold relief
  • flap width adjustment
  • Reshaping the tip of the nose and adjusting the sagging of the tip of the nose
  • Deformation, protrusion, bowed nose and minor asymmetry adjustments

All performed to improve the overall harmony of the face . Rhinoplasty is also applied to offset the undesirable effects of previous rhinoplasty.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Procedure

The non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure is quick and simple. Since it is performed as an outpatient, no hospitalization or special preparation is required.

It is not common to undergo a pre-operative examination, but cases of suspected filler allergy or local anesthetic allergy are excluded.

Of course , close observation of the face and nose is performed . During molding, computer simulations are also run to determine the most satisfactory shape. All procedures must be performed by medical professionals in a space that meets appropriate hygienic conditions.

In general, non-surgical rhinoplasty follows the following procedure.

  1. Apply local anesthesia to the area to be treated and wait for a while for the effect to take effect.
  2. Proceed with microinjection of hyaluronic acid. Calcium hydroxyapatite, which promotes collagen production, can also be used.
  3. Inject strategically into the bridge of the nose or the tip of the nose, depending on the most appropriate shape.
  4. Although hyaluronic acid is a liquid, it hardens when it enters the skin, but does not require a bandage or splint.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty takes about 30 to 45 minutes. You can leave the hospital immediately after the procedure is complete.

Care after rhinoplasty

It is a simple procedure, but requires a series of care, especially in the first few days.

  • do not sleep face down
  • Stop wearing glasses.
  • Do not touch or pinch your nose.
  • Rest for 48 hours.
  • Avoid sun or intense heat.
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity, especially activities that may blow your nose.

In addition, premature aging causes the loss of natural hyaluronic acid, so it is good to use sunscreen frequently.

Advantages and limitations of non-surgical rhinoplasty

Compared to other cosmetic procedures, non-surgical rhinoplasty has the advantage that, unlike rhinoplasty, there are no open scars, so there is less chance of infection.

It is less painful, less invasive, and leaves no scars. Also, the recovery period is short and hyaluronic acid is an absorbent substance.

The holding period is limited, but results are immediately visible. The average maintenance period is 12 months, after which the procedure must be repeated. More permanent results can be obtained with polymethyl methacrylate if approved by your doctor.

Polymethyl methacrylate is not approved in all countries. Some drug agencies have banned it because of its dangers.

However, non-surgical rhinoplasty can correct only some aesthetic problems. Therefore, it is impossible to correct the bone base or cartilage. Unlike functional rhinoplasty, it cannot provide breathing improvements either.

Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty Reactions and Side Effects

During the first few days after the procedure, there are usually certain reactions such as redness or swelling in the area as well as minor bruising. For this, anti-inflammatory drugs and ointments are prescribed.

Although hyaluronic acid is not common, side effects such as granulomas, allergic reactions due to hypersensitivity reactions, and even skin necrosis may occur. There is also a risk of infection, and nasal breathing may be affected by the anatomy of the patient’s nose.

Finally, some results may not be symmetrical and therefore not aesthetically pleasing. In this case, hyaluronic acid may be removed if the patient wishes.

Hyaluronic acid is increasingly used in the cosmetic field. For example, it is injected into the lips to give volume.

Recommended for

Non-surgical rhinoplasty can correct only minor imperfections. Therefore, it is not useful for hooked nose surgery or deviated septal change. In these cases, other procedures such as traditional rhinoplasty or ultrasonic rhinoplasty are recommended.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty should not be performed on minors whose smell organs are not fully developed. It is also not recommended for people with clotting disorders.
