Non-Surgical Nose Job | Treatment Video, Case Study and Risks

in today’s episode I’ll be talking you through and demonstrating the non surgical nose job, where fillers are strategically placed along the nose to help straighten out any hooks or bumps.

First up let’s talk about noses, whether you’ve got a stubby nose or a hooked nose let’s face it noses come in all shapes and sizes.

Traditionally to alter the shape your nose, you’d require a surgical procedure commonly known as a rhinoplasty. This requires one or several incisions under general anaesthetic, and a recovery period of up to 2 weeks with the aid of a nasal cast.

The non-surgical option differs in that the procedure can be performed without the need of general anaesthetic and there is no down time.

Sounds too good to be true right? Well, the main disadvantages of the non-surgical option is that it is only suitable for certain candidates, secondly, as it uses dermal filler, it will only last for a period of up to 12 to 18 months, and most importantly, as it’s not a traditional treatment, the risks are heightened, so always seek an adequately trained cosmetic practitioner.

WHO CAN HAVE THE PROCEDURE

For this procedure, those who have a natural bump at the top of their nose or who have a hook on the end will benefit most.

Unfortunately, this procedure is not suitable for people who suffer from certain medical conditions and for those who have already had a rhinoplasty in the past, as there is a larger chance of complications.

HOW IS IT PERFORMED

After completing a full facial assessment the area is cleansed thoroughly.

For this procedure, you’ll see that I use ultra fine syringes, this helps in a few ways, firstly the needle is much thinner and so reduces the chance of puncturing vessels, secondly it allows me to deposit smaller amounts in various locations as the syringe has more gradients to it.

I work in a systematic manner, firstly by injecting the bridge of the nose, down to the bone, and placing filler here will help to even out any lumps or bumps.

The second injection site is towards the tip of the nose, one of which is performed between the nostrils, this is uncomfortable for the patient but helps to elevate the hook of the nose.

After a quick facial assessment mid way through, I then continue to inject small amounts of filler according to where it is needed.

Something to be aware of, is that while you will see immediate changes to the nose, it will swell up during the procedure, so care and trust is needed with your practitioner as they will know where to place the filler best according to their facial assessments.

AFTERCARE

The treatment typically takes 15-20 minutes depending on the case and there is no downtime. It’s important to understand that you will have swelling and bruising in this area. For this your practitioner will advise an ice pack or simple pain relief. It’s vital that you don’t rub or touch the filler after the procedure, to avoid infection and displacement of the product.

It’s important to alert your practitioner, if you do notice any signs of infection which could include, redness or pus.

The filler will take full effect in two weeks and this will give time for the swelling and inflammation to settle and the results are life changing as you can see from my patient.

RISKS

The nose receives blood supply from a number of important arteries which also go on to supplying the eyes.

Now as with all surgical procedures there are risks you should be aware of. Infection, swelling bruising bleeding.

And more rarely blindness. Sadly Australia had its first case of blindness from dermal fillers this April. This can occur when filler is injected close to or into a vessel that supplies the eye causing a blockage so that the eye no longer has supply.

If you are a patient who is seeking such treatments it’s vital to ensure that the cosmetic practitioner, firstly, has the correct dissolving solution in their clinic and secondly knows how to deal with such an emergency.

But the good news is, is that this is very rare and when the procedure is done correctly the results are astonishing. For a lot of people they’ll have tears of joy.

Thanks for watching and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment in the comments section below or pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy.

Cheek and Under Eye Hollow Dermal Fillers for Men | Cannula vs Needle Analysis

In this episode I’ll be talking you through a cheek and tear trough filler procedure showing you and discussing the pros and cons of using a cannula and needle to inject dermal fillers.

COMPANION VIDEOS

CANNULA

A cannula is a blunt plastic tube that is introduced to the skin using needle. As the cannula is blunt, it is less likely to penetrate through important vessels and is less traumatic to underlying tissues, this means there will be less swelling and bruising. 

A cannula also allows for fewer injection sites which is more comfortable for the patient. The use of cannula can be quicker than a needle but this does depend on the area being treated.

CHEEK FILLER WITH CANNULA

For the cheek filler treatment, first an incision is made with a 25 gauge needle, this provides the opening for the cannula to be inserted. The needle is then removed and the cannula passed through the entry point to below the skin surface. The cannula can re-enter in the same injection site and so allowing for filler to be deposited in multiple areas with just one entry point.

NEEDLE

Needles are great because they give you more control on the areas you’re injecting, allowing you to give small precise deposits of filler. That being said, you will require more injection sites.

TEAR TROUGH FILLER WITH NEEDLE

First up the area is cleansed and the safety zones to be injected are marked on the face. Several ultra fine needles are used to deposit small amounts of filler along the boney prominence of the face. After the injections the filler is massaged into place.

PROS AND CONS

When deciding which method to use it depends on a number of factors.

- Needles are considered to be more precise and can be injected deeper into the issue, but do require more injections to be made, which for the patient can be the most wince provoking part of the treatment.

- The patients experience and expectations play another factor here, most patients may have experience or at least know what to expect from a needle. With the cannula, while generally more comfortable, you can still feel it moving under the skin, which can present a new and un-natural experience. So the patients experience level and preference is important to consider.

- The areas being treated especially in regards to the surrounding anatomical structures need to be taken into careful consideration. As the cannula is blunt, it is less likely to penetrate through important vessels and is less traumatic to underlying tissues, this means there will be less swelling and bruising.

- However, the most important factor is your cosmetic practitioners preference and experience level. As a practitioner with more experience with one technique will perform better than using another. The traditional pathway for a cosmetic practitioner is to start with needles as they can be used for both dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments, whereas cannulas are primarily used for dermal fillers only, so that is why you may find that not all practitioners are trained for the use of cannula and so the outcome does depend on the providers experience and technique, because you don’t want to be their first.

Cheek Fillers in the Gold Coast | Before and After Transformation

Today I’ll be sharing with you a treatment video featuring a yummy mommy and her first cosmetic procedure.

She was looking for more definition to emphasis her cheekbones, for this I used 1ml of Hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler in each cheek.

Hyaluronic acid which may sound scary is actually a naturally occurring molecule in your body and a common ingredient in skin-care products.

As you can see, there was a noticeable difference immediately after treatment. Specifically you can see that the cheekbone area is more defined, giving the face a more contoured and youthful look.

The treatment usually takes 30 minutes, and for this one it was so nice seeing the results, as she was very nervous with it being her first time…. hope you enjoy the video.
