A common concern among those considering non-surgical rhinoplasty is whether the nose will still be pliable following the injections. Patients often worry that they will not be able to treat their nose normally for fear of displacing the filler.
To answer the question, it is important to first understand how a non-surgical rhinoplasty works. The procedure involves injecting dermal fillers under the skin to temporarily alter the shape of the nose without an invasive procedure. Depending on the type of filler used, the results can last anywhere from 6-18 months.
For those considering non-surgical rhinoplasty in Toronto, Dr. Solomon is well known as a leading rhinoplasty surgeon and has worked with patients to improve all kinds of issues ranging from medical issues to purely cosmetic concerns.
When fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse are used to alter the nose, the skin should feel soft and normal following the procedure. Generally, it is important to be gentle with the nose for the first few days following the procedure to avoid displacing the filler, after which you can resume treating your nose normally. However, in cases where it is the bridge of the nose that has been injected, it is recommended to avoid wearing glasses for around a month to avoid pressure to the treated area.
This is because, during the first 2 weeks, the dermal filler is still malleable and therefore the pressure from glasses can end up leaving indentations on the nose. Once the filler is fully integrated, you can safely resume wearing glasses. During the first week, patients may find that the nose feels firmer than before following the injections, however, after the first few days it should begin to soften and feel normal again.
As with any medical procedure, the recovery period, and how natural the results feel and look will depend to a large extent, on the surgeon as well as how your body absorbs the product. It is very important to choose a surgeon who specializes in non-surgical rhinoplasty in Toronto. At Dr. Solomon’s clinic, he performs in depth assessments to evaluate each patient’s individual case, and give recommendations accordingly. Once patients have all the information they need, they are able to make an informed decision and typically the procedure can be performed the same day.
By choosing a meticulous and highly skilled surgeon, you can go into the procedure with confidence and be sure that there will be no unwelcome surprises following the treatment.
Typically, following a non-surgical rhinoplasty in Toronto, patients are recommended to avoid touching the area for the first 6 hours after which the area can be lightly washed with soap and water and light makeup can be applied safely.
At Dr. Solomon’s Nasal and Facial Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Toronto, he provides post-procedure guidance to patients so that they are able to heal as fast and comfortably as possible.
