Dermal Fillers: The New “Nose Job”
A non-surgical nose job using dermal fillers works to adjust any irregularities and improve the appearance of the nose.
Often one of the first things people notice about you is your nose, so it’s no wonder rhinoplasty is such a popular procedure. Dermal Filler procedures are gaining popularity as a less permanent alternative to the traditional surgical rhinoplasty as a way to adjust the appearance and shape of your nose.
Using Dermal Fillers Around the Nose
During the procedure, small amounts of filler are injected into problem areas to improve volume, adjust irregularities, and smooth out the bridge of the nose. The procedure has no recovery time and only takes about 10-30 minutes. Since filler is non-surgical it is becoming a popular alternative to nose jobs, often for women who are still determining how they want to alter their nose.
If this procedure is right for you, it’s essential to find an experienced DC plastic surgeon like Drs. Bruno and Brown for your non-surgical nose job. The experience of your surgeon translates directly to the quality of your results, and the nose is a particularly delicate feature. The blood supply to the nose is quite weak (even more so if you have undergone a previous surgery) so it is particularly important to choose a qualified surgeon for the best results.
In addition to a nonsurgical rhinoplasty, fillers are also used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, especially between the eyes, fill out hollow cheeks and eyes, plump the lips, restructure receding chins, and generally increase facial volume.
