The 10-minute nose job
New procedure means no surgery is required
A new procedure is available for people unhappy with their profile – non-surgical nose reshaping.
The process involvesinjectingacosmetic fillerinto key areas around thenoseand means patients avoid going under the knife. It can help those who are unhappy with their noses not because of the size but because of the shape.
In particular, it should prove a viable option for those who do not want to resort to nose surgery (rhinoplasty). And with each treatment typically costing £300,nonsurgical nose reshapingis far cheaper. Surgery costs around £3,500 and involves a six-week recovery period.
About 2,500 people haverhinoplastyeach year. However, the operation – say researchers at Newcastle University in Australia – is one of the trickiestcosmeticprocedures to perform. According to their figures, adverse effects – including excessive bleeding, loosening of cartilage in the nose and scar formation – can occur in up to 18% of cases.
Non-surgical nose reshapingoriginated in Brazil about seven years ago. Cosmetic doctors there were getting requests for subtle changes tonose shape, rather than the more dramatic changes produced by surgery. They applied dermal fillers already being used to fill out other areas of the face.
The method has reached the UK only recently, and was initially used to help reshape thenoseafter sports injuries. Thesecosmetic fillers, known by brand names such as Restylane and Juvederm, consist of a combination of hyaluronic acid and water.
Found naturally in the body’s connective tissue, hyaluronic acid is agel-likesubstance. Beneath the skin, it combines with water and collagen, a protein which provides structure, to form a spongy layer in between cells. When a synthetic form of the acid is injected beneath the skin, it is taken up by the body’s own tissue, adding plumpness to specific areas.
