What is a Non-surgical Rhinoplasty? This was a technique first pioneered in Asia to strengthen the infamously flat chinese nose. Kiora's Cosmetic Doctors have a special interest in developing non-invasive techniques as alternatives to nose surgery and have for four years been developing and modifying these basic techniques so that a wide range of nose problems can now be treated safely and quickly. They have adapted the original techniques so broken noses, crooked noses and flat noses can be enhanced to give a more balanced and proportional face. All non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures at Kiora are performed by one of our principle Cosmetic Doctors, Dr Grace Lin or Dr Neville Lee See. They have been with Kiora continuously since 2005 to give safer and more consistent outcomes.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST? Because the soft tissues around the nose cannot move the dermal filler is highly protected from the normal shearing forces that cause the filler to break down. Fillers tend to persist for a very long time in this area. On average the effect lasts for longer than 12 months and is very cost effective compared to surgery.
ADVANCED COSMETIC INJECTION TECHNIQUES Non-invasive cosmetic techniques can be adapted to provide an alternative to cosmetic surgery in other areas. Both the chin and cheeks may be reshaped with dermal fillers to give a more balanced and pleasing look to the face. The face can be slimmed to give a more glamorous streamlined look. Even severe sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be reduced by 90%. The longevity of these techniques is excellent and often exceeds 12 months. It is the belief of our Doctors the outcome is often superior to traditional surgery.
WON'T ADDING DERMAL FILLERS MAKE MY NOSE LOOK BIGGER No! Often noses can look large or disproportional because there is an obvious crookedness or bump to the nose. By precisely using fillers to straighten the profile of the nose the overall effect is to create a more proportional, more balanced nose. The end result can be a nose which appears smaller.
WHICH DERMAL FILLERS DO YOU USE IN THE NOSE? Kiora uses dermal filler gels which are slightly harder and more structural than the ones normally used to enhance the lips. These fillers have a similar hardness to the nose cartilage, provide superior shape and last longer than some of the less specialised dermal fillers. Similar dermal fillers and advanced injection techniques can be used to create facial slimming, give a non-surgical facelift or enhance the cheeks.
IS IT PAINFUL? Non-surgical rhinoplasty is one of the least painful procedures Kiora offers. Pain is well controlled by a combination of nerve blocks, advanced topical analgesic agents and the latest generation of dermal fillers which have a local anaesethetic included in the gel matrix. The filler itself numbs the area as it is injected.
CAN I DO IT IF I HAVE ALREADY HAD NOSE SURGERY This is a procedure commonly used to correct nose surgery that has gone wrong. Dermal fillers can be used to soften obvious bumps and bulk up the soft tissues to disguise poorly placed cartilage or bone grafts. The procedure is more technically challenging and slightly riskier for ex-surgical patients and a full consultation with either Dr Grace Lin or Dr Neville Lee See is compulsory.
HOW MUCH TIME WILL I NEED OFF WORK? Most people are able to return to work straight away. The entire procedure takes less than 20 minutes. Minor bruising is the primary risk. This can be easily covered by makeup. Mild swelling usually persists for 24-48 hours. Bad bruising is quite rare but if it does happens lasts about a week.
WHAT CAN'T IT DO? The non-surgical rhinoplasty techniques can treat almost all of the same problems traditional nose surgery can. The profile of the nose can be straightened. Prominent bony bumps can be softened. And the bridges of flat noses can be lifted to give a sharper more defined profile. Dr Grace Lin and Dr Neville Lee See have even adapted the techniques to subtlety lift the tip of the nose and shrink the size of the nostrils. They have both been with Kiora continuously since 2005 to give a safer and more consistent outcome.
