Am I a Candidate for Injectable Rhinoplasty?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose and want to avoid a surgical procedure, injectable rhinoplasty may be the perfect solution for you. While injectable rhinoplasty may temporarily disguise minor irregularities on the nose, it has limitations on how much correction can be made. Changing the positioning the tip and making the nose smaller are changes that will require a surgical rhinoplasty. Injectable rhinoplasty is not for every nose. A consultation with Dr Choroomi is required to determine if injectable rhinoplasty is right for you.
Injectable Rhinoplasty Consultation with Dr Choroomi
Each patient’s facial and nasal structure is unique, therefor, Dr Choroomi must tailor all treatments according to your individual anatomy and aesthetic desires. Dr Choroomi will examine your nose and facial frame and discuss your exceptions of injectable rhinoplasty. Photography and digital imaging will be performed to show what cosmetic changes may be possible with injectable rhinoplasty.
Based on your discussion and his assessment, Dr. Choroomi can determine if injectable rhinoplasty is right for you. Specific questions regarding the procedure, recovery risks, and results will be discussed in detail at your consultation to ensure that you are fully informed and comfortable with your treatment plan.
Injectable Rhinoplasty Treatment
Injectable rhinoplasty is a non-surgical treatment that alters the shape of the nose by injecting facial fillers underneath the skin. These fillers change the shape of the nose by adding structure or size. Facial fillers cannot make the nose smaller. Injectable rhinoplasty will not change your natural anatomy; it will only temporarily hide minor irregularities.
Initially, the area is cleaned and numbing cream is applied to alleviate any minor discomfort. Dr Choroomi will inject small amounts of filler in specific locations of the nose. The procedure itself typically takes 15-30 minutes. This procedure has little to no down time. Bruising is rare, and most people can resume their daily activities immediately.
Injectable Rhinoplasty Results
Results from fillers can typically be seen immediately but the full effect may not be appreciated until swelling has completely subsided, typically after 1-2 weeks. On average, the effects of fillers last between 6-9 months. Over time, the filler breaks down naturally in your skin without leaving any harmful residue behind. Follow-up treatments will need to be maintained to preserve your results.
If you are unsatisfied with the new shape of your nose after injectable rhinoplasty, the fillers can be completely dissolved.
