Non Surgical Rhinoplasty - A Test Shows it Works
When it comes to looking at other people, the nose is the anchor of the face, with eyes being the runner-up. A pleasing, proportionate nose balances the other features in a person's face to create a handsome face in men and beautiful face in a woman.
In a face with a nonremarkable nose, the eyes of the observer first notice facial balance and then the person's eyes. But in a nose that has flaws, including:
Humps and bumps
Bends of twists in the nose
Grooves, moguls or divots in the nasal skin
Low hanging tips
the eye of the observing person remains stuck on the flawed nose and does not really notice the lips, cheekbones, jaw line and other features of the person you are looking at. It's even worse if the person has as receding chin.
Only patients whose breathing is completely normal and do not need surgery inside the nose can have nonsurgical rhinoplasty. That includes people who need surgical attention for:
A broken nose
To start a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, the patent is given local anesthesia in the treatment area of the nos; the plastic surgeon uses a syringe and very thin hypodermic needle to inject the soft tissue filler under the nasal skin.
While Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse and other hyaluronic acid-based fillers are often used, only Silikon 1000 provides a permanent change. Using Silikon, the cosmetic surgeon places micro drops of the substance under the skin. It becomes permanent because the body walls off, or encapsulates, the tiny drops of Silikon
Such minute amounts of filler are used that the patient often must return in six weeks to see how the nose is reacting and to add more filler, if needed. But the time required is far less than having yet another surgical rhinoplasty with its substantial costs and time away from work and family for recovery.
The actual time needed for a plastic surgeon to inject and emplace the soft tissue fillers require about an hour or less in many cases to perform in the surgeon's office. When the procedure is finished, the patient is free to resume his or her usual activities.
The filler injection technique makes possible corrections like the augmentation of a flat nasal bridge, or, technically, a depressed dorsum. The surgeon can also add some projection to a nasal tip or camouflage a hump on the nose by injecting material above and below the hump. Nasal sidewalls depressions, saddle noses and a few other traumatic injuries can be treated and enhanced. (A saddle nose is the typical 'boxer's nose' with the bridge of the nose highly depressed.)
The study, one of the many medical studies done that show how well injection rhinoplasty works, was done in Australia in 2005 and printed in the Australasian Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. Titled, Rhinoplasty Using Injectable Polyacrylamide Gel (Aquamid) - A patient Study, the study looked at the noninjection rhinoplasty on 89 patients who were an average of 32 years old. All the test subjects were treated for a nasal dorsum defect. (The dorsum is the long spine of the nose, running from the tip of the nose to its end just between the eyes.)
The test showed that the area which was injected was usually 20 to 30 percent higher than the healed height of the final correction. A special ointment was applied to swollen areas four times daisy.
Results? After 12 months, the follow up exam showed that all 89 patients were pleased with the aesthetic look of their injections and had a nose that looked natural in appearance and feel.
