Effect of Aging on nose
The aging nose loses fullness in the upper nose and between the eyebrows more than any other location. As this area atrophies, wrinkles form between the eyebrows and on the upper nose. As the upper nose shrinks, the remaining parts of the nose become relatively larger. Therefore the tip appears larger with the atrophy of the upper nose. As this happens, the tip may also appear to plunge.
What is a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty surgeries often leave a nose with an “open roof.” With this common deformity, the cartilage and bony parts of the nose have been separated so that it looks like a long trough through which the septum can be felt or even seen through the thin skin of the nose. In addition, the cartilage or bone can become deformed in many ways after rhinoplasty. The skin of the nose in some patients is so thin that irregularities can be amazingly visible after nasal surgery.
Who is A Candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Patients who desire significant change of the nose shape and size, or who desire alteration of bone and cartilage structure, would not be good candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty. If you are looking for a dramatic change, a permanent alteration of the nose, improvement in breathing, or a reduction in nose size, you would be better served by a traditional rhinoplasty. However, patients looking for a subtle change, such as smoothing out a bump, elevating the tip or filling in a depressed area could be considered good candidates for a non-surgical nose job.
For the patient seeking a stronger nose, more definition to their nose, or a change in relative proportion of one part of the nose to another or to the rest of the face, non-surgical rhinoplasty with gel and fat injection is a useful tool.
