If you’re not happy with the appearance of your nose, but fear the idea of plastic surgery, you can certainly go for a less traumatic alternative – a nose job through injectable nose fillers.
With the advent of a variety of facial fillers, including Juvederm and Restylane, unsatisfactory results from traditional surgical rhinoplasty can be easily rectified without having to undergo another traumatic surgery. Sometimes, nose fillers are used by Singapore aesthetic surgeons during revision of surgical rhinoplasty. Other times, nose fillers are applied for the sole purpose of creating an evened out nose surface for a more pleasing appearance without surgical intervention.
Aging of the Nose
As we age, our noses change; it loses volume and soft tissue dissolves. There’s also a reduction in the structural support of the nasal tip, causing the nose to look droopy. The width of the radix reduces as well. The frown lines cause the line between the nose and eyebrow to be affected. Because of the natural aging process of the nose, people turn to dermal procedures like nose fillers in Singapore to treat the structural aging of the nose.
Treatment with Nose Fillers
The amount of filler required for every procedure varies, but aesthetic surgeons in Singapore typically perform three treatments with one month interval for every nose filling procedure. The aesthetic clinic surgeon will assess the face, the shape of the nose, and surgical history before deciding on the best dosage to apply. If the patient has complications with nose filler, or if they want a more natural-looking result, a smaller dose of substance is used to start with.
Side Effects of Nose Fillers
- Bruising – this usually occurs because the surface of the skin is forced.
- Swelling – in most cases a bit of swelling in the injected parts occur, and usually lasts for two days.
- Asymmetry – sometimes one side of the nose is better than the other. This usually happens when the nose of the patient is asymmetrical in shape or in anatomy.
- Infection – this happens very rarely, but always possible in procedures that includes insertion of needle into the skin.
- Facial Capillaries – this can linger for a long time, and usually gets resolved when the nose filler dissolves and loses its effect.
After the surgery, mild swelling and redness may occur. To ease the swelling, careful use of ice packs is required. Make up can be applied after a couple of hours, and patients can go back to their work immediately.
Follow up visits to the aesthetic clinic for minor adjustments and further enhancements are often done days after the procedure. In some cases, nose fillers are used for non-surgical touchups of surgical rhinoplasty. As always, nose fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse only provide temporary results that generally last up to a year or two.
There’s nothing wrong with wishing to have a better-looking nose. Anybody can certainly take advantage of the modern scientific technology to enhance our God-given beauty. Just make sure you have fully understood and accepted the possible outcome of the procedure.
