The nose is located at the centre of your face – which is why it is often the first feature people notice. If you’re not happy with your nose shape, then this can understandably result in a loss of confidence and increased insecurity.
There are many reasons to why someone might feel less than confident about their nose. Through sports, injuries, or simply genetics – the nose can often appear crooked or hooked. But there’s good news if you fall into this category. We now have effective procedures that can straighten and reshape the nose.
Before we explore our new treatment – let’s consider the traditional surgical rhinoplasty.
A lot of people go straight to surgery, most times without considering the alternatives. Surgical rhinoplasties (nose jobs) can often be costly and of course, come with many risks.
With a surgical nose job, you risk the possibility of suffering from excessive bleeding and infection, as is the risk with any surgery. A surgical rhinoplasty could also result in numbness and scarring.
There is also significant downtime that comes with a surgical nose job, meaning that you may not be able to go about your day-to-day and work life for a while afterwards.
A Safer Alternative
Surgery isn’t for everyone, as the risks involved turn many people away, which is why we’re proud to offer a non-surgical alternative.
At River Aesthetics we have a new, safe, non-surgical nose reshaping procedure that only takes 20 minutes. Unlike invasive rhinoplasties, this procedure doesn’t require you going under the knife.
The procedure involves the injection of a hyaluronic acid dermal filler into areas around the nose. This will work to change the overall shape, resulting in a straighter nose.
This procedure is perfect for those with a ‘Romanesque’ nose, or those who suffer from a dip in the nose bridge.
What Can I Expect From My Consultation?
Before we start treatment, you will have an in-depth consultation with one of our professionals. During the consultation, your aims and expectations will be discussed with you, so that we can make sure we can offer you the very best treatment.
Your nasal profile will also be examined and assessed in relation to your overall facial structure. This is to ensure your new and improved nose looks in harmony with your facial area.
What Nose Type Do I Have?
There are many different types of noses, some of them more symmetrical than others. We will take you through some of the more common nose shapes, to help you identify yours.
The Roman Nose
The ‘Roman Nose’ – also called an aquiline nose – is a common nose shape in both men and women. This type of nose is identified by its prominent bridge.
If you have this nose shape and are unhappy with it, then our non-surgical nose reshaping procedure can help you by smoothing the contours of the nose, while evening out bumps and depressions along the bridge.
If you live a healthy and active lifestyle, injury to the nose is sometimes unavoidable. Injury to the nose, often caused by a sporting accident, can result in asymmetry. Our non-surgical nose reshaping procedure can be used to correct asymmetry in crooked noses.
The Fleshy Nose
By far the most common nose shape, the ‘fleshy’ nose is found in roughly 24.2 percent of the population. Our procedure can help by raising the tip of the nose to give it a less ‘hooked’ appearance
Side Effects of Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping
Following the procedure, there may be minimal swelling or redness, which unlike surgery will subside in a few days.
