G Aesthetic Wellness Medical Clinic offers the non surgical nose reshaping procedure. This is also referred to as the non surgical rhinoplasty. All procedures are carried out by our highly experienced doctors who have a fantastic knowledge and expertise in this treatment.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most desired cosmetic procedures, but many patients are frightened by the potential complications and the risk of unfavorable cosmetic results. Non surgical rhinoplasty is a safe, non-invasive alternative to traditional rhinoplasty. Sometimes it is called the 15 minute nose job as the treatment involves only dermal filler injections or bioabsorbable PDO threads to reshape nose.
This is an excellent, affordable option for people who want to change the shape of their nose but do not want surgery. Results are instant; there is no excessive downtime, no general anaesthetic and no prolonged healing.
Who is suitable for the non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Anyone who has :
- Slightly crooked nose
- Small nose that needs building up
- Hook shaped noses that would like straightening
- A mild to moderate bump on the bridge of the nose
- A mild to moderate drooping of nasal tip
- A nose that needs refinement after surgical rhinoplasty
- Noses that would like more height, definition and a nose tip
What is the difference between thread and filler nose augmentation?
Nose threadlift, when used alone or in combination with nose filler, is able to lift your nose bridge and nose tip, making your nose look sharper and higher.
Our nose threadlift utilises advanced PDO (polydioxanone) threads which are placed under the skin to improve the contour of the nose i.e. elevate the nose bridge and/or tip which stimulating collagen formation to lift and support the desired contour.
This treatment is also done under local anaesthesia and requires about 15-30 minutes. The number of threads required will be determined by the attending doctor based on the existing shape of the nose. The results are immediately visible and our trained doctors and staff will also advise you accordingly about the post-treatment dos and don’ts.
Possible side effects:
The Korean nose threadlift is a procedure with a very good safety profile. The procedure itself is done under strict sterile conditions to minimise any risk of infection. The placement of the threads is normally done in such a way that no scars will be visible. As with fillers, some discomfort, redness and bruising may occur immediately after the procedure but this is temporary. Korean threadlifts, however, are not associated with any of the previously mentioned vascular complications that can rarely occur with fillers.
How long does it last?
The embedded threads normally completely dissolves after about 6 months but the collagen that forms during that time will help to support the new shape of the nose for a much longer period. Therefore, Korean nose threadlift normally lasts for 1 to 1.5 years.
This is typically a hyaluronic acid injection which when done appropriately can augment the nose bridge effectively.
This is done under a local anaesthetic and takes about 15 minutes. The results are immediately visible i.e. a higher nose bridge. It continues to improve over 1-2 weeks after which a review with your doctor will be arranged.
Possible side effects:
A nose filler injection is typically safe other than the initial redness and mild discomfort at the injection site. This normally resolves quickly and you can resume daily activities almost immediately. Occasionally bruising may ensue but this is also temporary. Certain complications have been associated with nose filler injections and these include infection and vascular complications including skin necrosis and visual disturbance. This is exceedingly rare and will be discussed with you again prior to the procedure.
How long does it last:
A nose filler typically lasts for about 1-2 years after which the nose contour typically reverts back to its original appearance. The injection can then be repeated.
Should I get a filler or a threadlift?
To highlight some of the similarities and differences between nose filler injection and Korean nose threadlift:
- Threadlifts are able to achieve a higher nose tip, which is more difficult to achieve with nose filler injections
- Threadlifts are not associated with some of the rare, but serious vascular complications that can be associated with filler injections
- Threadlifts do not spread out to broaden the nose which can occur with nose filler injections
- Both can give excellent improvement in the nose contour when done properly
- Both treatments have good longevity and can be repeated when the effects start to wane
In actual fact, nose fillers and threadlifts need not necessarily be done in isolation. The effects can be combined to give a more dramatic, longer lasting result. Our doctors would be more than happy to advise you further on how you can attain the nose contour that you’ve always wanted.
