Nose augmentation

Liquid Nose Lift

Nose reshaping is the second most desired cosmetic correction after breast augmentation. There are numerous studies which show that more than half of people are unhappy with the shape and size of their noses. Many of them want to improve it, but they are afraid of surgery. This is true for both men and women.

Surgical correction of the nose is usually a serious procedure. Whether you undergo an open or closed rhinoplasty, you'll have to recover and endure postoperative inconveniences. Fortunately, there are other non-surgical procedures which can help you improve the appearance of your nose.

We at Shens Medical offer only non-surgical nose augmentation procedures. They can help you achieve the desired shape and size without the need of experiencing the negatives of major surgery.

Here we will look in more detail at non-surgical nose job treatments. We will also give you some information about surgical rhinoplasty. We hope that this will help you decide which procedure is best for you.

What is Nose Augmentation?

Nose augmentation is a type of rhinoplasty which aims to augment or enhance the nose. This procedure can significantly improve the appearance of the nose as well as its function.

The goal of this kind of rhinoplasty is to change the proportions and size of the nose and create a more harmonious appearance while preserving other facial features. In addition to correcting the nasal aesthetics, the procedure can also address some other issues such as difficulty breathing.

Why you may want to get rhinoplasty?

  • If you have thick nasal skin.
  • You have a nasal dorsum hump (excessive bone on the nose bridge).
  • You want to change the way your nose tip looks (for instance, if it is very droopy).
  • If your nostrils are very asymmetric.
  • You want to enhance the angle between your nose and upper lip.
  • If you don't have a strong dorsum and your nose looks too flat.
  • You want to correct issues related to a previous injury.
  • You had your first nose job and are unhappy with the results so you want to have revision rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty can be performed for purely aesthetic or reconstructive purposes such as correcting birth defects or breathing problems.

Non-Surgical nose job treatments at Shens Medical

Non-surgical rhinoplasty at Shens Medical can be done in two ways - through a procedure called a nose thread lift or with the help of dermal fillers. Both treatments can be done very quickly and require very short downtime. Another good thing about these non-surgical nose corrections is that they produce very natural-looking results.

The main difference between threads and fillers is that threads are better for reshaping and creating a higher bridge on the nose. Fillers can be more specific and target the small defects or indents more accurately than threads.

Here we will give you more information about both nose thread lifts and nose fillers as well as the benefits of each.

Nose Threadlift - HIKO Nose Lift

HIKO nose thread lift is an innovative and completely different approach to traditional rhinoplasty. The treatment reshapes the nose without the need for surgery and incisions. Instead, plastic surgeons use threads to build up the nasal bridge or the dorsum of the nose, making it look more defined. Nose threadlift is a same-day procedure carried out under local anaesthesia.

How is the procedure done?

Your doctor will apply local anaesthesia and then insert absorbable threads. The procedure is painless and takes literally a few minutes. You can normally return to your usual life immediately after the correction, which is a huge advantage. The only limitation is that you will not be able to wear glasses for a certain period of time.

What are the benefits of non-surgical nose lift?

  • The treatment does not include surgery or any cuts on the skin.
  • It is a very quick and painless treatment.
  • Threadlifts can help stimulate collagen formation inside your nose.
  • HIKO Nose threadlift is a more affordable option than rhinoplasty surgery.
  • It is a safe treatment suitable for almost all patients who desire to enhance their noses.
  • The procedure yields long-term results that can last up to two years.

Nose Fillers - Liquid Nose Lift

Nose fillers normally can correct small defects. They are also very precise in their placement. You can have them injected on the top of your nose to fill the gap, in the middle to lessen the look of the dorsum or in the tip to create an upward-pointed nose. You may also get injections in all areas at the same time to even further improve the appearance of your nose.

How is the procedure done?

The liquid nose lift procedure usually starts with the application of local anesthesia. Once the area is numbed, the plastic surgeon injects fillers into certain points of the nose to change its shape. The entire treatment usually takes about 30-40 minutes depending on the number of injections administrated. In most cases, the treatment requires minimal to no downtime.

What are the benefits of nose fillers?

  • One of the most obvious advantages is that it is a non-surgical, painless nose job procedure.
  • It is done very quickly and the downtime is minimal.
  • There are no incisions or scarring.
  • The procedure provides obvious results immediately.
  • It does not carry any serious risks.
  • The nose filler technique is much cheaper than the surgical rhinoplasty procedure.

When it comes to deciding between having a nose thread lift or nose fillers, you really need to think about what you are trying to achieve. Another important thing you need to take into consideration is that the results of nose threadlift usually last longer than those of fillers.

Rhinoplasty surgery

Rhinoplasty is a serious facial plastic surgery which can be done to address various problems with the nose. It can be used to correct the front of the nose or the nasal bone, the nasal tip or the nostrils as well. However, many times the procedure is conducted not only for cosmetic reasons but also for medical reasons. Rhinoplasty can improve breathing through the nose or correct any structural abnormalities caused by trauma.

Types of rhinoplasty procedures

There are mainly two types of rhinoplasty procedures - open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty. The difference between the two is that the open technique is done through a small incision right on the skin that is between the two nostrils while with closed rhinoplasty all cuts are made inside the nostrils.

The closed technique is usually used for taking down a dorsal hump, narrowing the upper nasal bones or removing crooked rib cartilage to improve breathing. The open rhinoplasty procedure is for more complex revisions such as narrowing or elevating the tip or other types of rib cartilage grafts that need to be done in order to achieve the desired shape.

How is rhinoplasty surgery done?

Depending on the complexity of the work required, plastic surgeons may perform surgical rhinoplasty under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Closed rhinoplasty, for example, usually necessitates the use of general anesthesia while open rhinoplasty might be done under local anesthesia with sedation.

Once you are under the effect of the numbing agent, your doctor will start making the incisions. If you are having open rhinoplasty, then the surgeon will create a small cut at the base of your nose, between your nostrils. When closed rhinoplasty is performed, the incision is made inside your nose.

Then the skin and soft tissue are lifted off the bone and cartilage of the nose. This gives the surgeon access to the framework of the nose so that he/she can change the size, shape and overall general appearance of the nose.

The majority of times, rhinoplasty is done as a day-case procedure which means that it doesn't require an overnight stay. The recovery time may vary from two to three weeks depending on the complexity of the procedure and your body's ability to heal. You should avoid strenuous activities and sun exposure for several weeks to a month.

The effects of the procedure will gradually become apparent over a period of time. The final result can be seen after four to six months.

Nose thread lift vs rhinoplasty

Nose thread lift is an innovative technique that can help you achieve the desired nose shape without going under the knife. The procedure offers many advantages over traditional nasal surgery. It is a quick and painless procedure which produces immediate results. It doesn't require a long recovery period and is not associated with any serious side effects. However, тхе nose thread lift also has its limitations. It cannot address issues such as nasal obstruction, divided nasal septum and other structural abnormalities.

Surgical rhinoplasty, on the other hand, can correct a variety of nasal function problems and significantly improve breathing difficulties. The procedure can be used to improve the shape, contour and projection of the nose as well as reduce its size. Furthermore, unlike a thread lift, nose cosmetic surgery produces permanent results. But, as with any kind of surgery, rhinoplasty carries risks. You can expect to have swelling, minor bruising and pain for the first week following your operation. Infection is another possible adverse reaction you may experience due to anaesthesia. In rare cases, the procedure may lead to permanent numbness of the nose area and larger external scars.

Which should you choose: a surgical or non-surgical nose job? It is best to seek the advice of an experienced surgeon. He or she should find out exactly what your specific concerns are with your nose and explain what can be done to meet your expectations.

Keep in mind, however, that you are finally the one who must determine what type of procedure to undergo. Although it is helpful to hear opinions from other people, it really depends on your own personal preferences.

We at Shens Medical do not perform rhinoplasty surgery. We offer only non-surgical nose enhancement procedures such as liquid nose lifts and HIKO nose lifts. If you are considering any of these treatments and you would like to learn more about them, do not hesitate to contact us.
