The many complications that could arise as a result of surgical rhinoplasty has made the use of dermal fillers popular. Injection of dermal fillers into the nose for a nose job is much less difficult and comes with fewer risks. The patient also experiences minimum comfort and the procedure takes much less time, requiring a local anaesthetic agent instead of the general anaesthetic that the surgery requires.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected directly into the nose to restore the shape or structure. As with all dermal filler treatments, it is non-permanent and would require maintenance injections after a period of time. Fillers such as Restylane or Juve ‘derm are commonly used and the procedure usually takes about one hour or less.
As said earlier, a local anaesthetic agent is used, therefore, there is no recovery period as with the surgical treatments. Also, there are no permanent scars since there is no knife cut and the procedure poses minimal discomfort overall. The results from nose treatments with dermal fillers are seen immediately, the procedure is less expensive and equally effective.
