1) How is Nose Augmentation performed non-surgically?
Non-surgical nose augmentation is achieved using FDA-approved injectable filler, most commonly a high cross-linked, biocompatible hyaluronic acid based gel. Filler is placed just above the nose cartilage via tiny injections. Reshaping of the nose shape and elevation of the nose bridge is now made achievable in 10 minutes that were previously only ever possible with plastic surgery. Botulinum Toxin A can be added to further enhance the appearance of nose tips.
2) What are the advantages of Filler Nose Augmentation when compared to conventional surgery?
This is an affordable, safe and minimally invasive procedure. The filler contains anesthesia that make the procedure almost painless. The result is instant. There is no downtime and you could resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. Another benefit is that your new nose is readily reversible and you can have full control on the nose shape that you want. Convention surgery is unfortunately lacking of these advantages.
3) Who is the best candidate for Filler Nose Augmentation?
If you are not happy with the looks of your nose, then you are a potential candidate for this procedure. Of course you will need to be consulted by our doctors to determine the suitability of the treatment. For those who need refinement of the nose shape such as bumps or indentations, flat nose bridge or asymmetrical shapes, you can definitely benefit from this procedure.
4) How long does the result last?
Hyaluronic acid based filler can last from 6 to 18 months depends on the grades of the filler. You can discuss the type of material used with our doctor.
5) Are there any side effects?
This is a very safe procedure with no major side effects under the good hands. Some minor reactions such as bruises, redness and swelling can occur but will usually subside after 5 days.
