Improving the shape of your nose does not always have to involve surgery. In fact, it is now possible to refine the contour of the with very minimal invasion. This can be accomplished with a non surgical nose job.
Good candidates for this type of procedure include those with:
1) bumps or asymmetries on the bridge of the nose.
2) droopy tips
3) short looking noses
Short looking noses can be made to appear longer by adding height to the Radix. The Radix is the section of the nose that exists at the level of the eyes.
Because these procedures involve the use of a dermal filler called Radiesse, they cannot always be used in place of surgery. Patients who actually want to reduce the size of their nose will require surgical rhinoplasty.
Patients may want to consider a non surgical nose contouring for the following reasons:
1) Lower cost than a surgical procedure
2) Ability to experiment with different looks for face before committing to a surgical procedure
3) Little or no downtime
Because Radiesse is made of calcium based microspheres, it can offer structural support that is useful for improving the contour of the nose bridge. These particles create a layer beneath the skin that can even out bumps.
A non surgical nose job usually takes less than half an hour. The patient is awake and able to watch the procedure using a hand held mirror. They can even provide verbal guidance to guide the results.
Pain is usually very minimal. The Radiesse injection solution often includes Lidocaine for pain relief. This inclusion has been approved by the FDA
