As the name implies and Non Surgical Rhinoplasty is exactly that! It is a non-surgical option for patients desiring to change the appearance of their nose yet not undergo surgery.
At The Face and Body Place we have been providing patients with this option with great success over many years. Key factors important in the success of the treatment are:
- Our doctor understanding your concerns about your nose
- An evaluation as to whether a Non Surgical Rhinoplasty is right for you
- Our doctor will evaluate your concerns and the appearance of your nose.
The categories of patients who may benefit from a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty can be broadly defined as:
- “I don’t like the shape” of my nose
- A patient who has suffered physical trauma to the nose
- Prior surgical rhinoplasty and dissatisfied with the result
- A nose that is too broad or the nostrils appear wide
- A drooping nose or a nose with a bump
- A nose that appears pointed or “too sharp”
- An “unbalanced” nose where there is lack of harmony between the bony (hard) and cartilaginous (soft) part
In all these cases we have a solution for you! The aim of the treatment is to achieve harmony in the nose itself as well as harmony between the nose and the rest of the face. The results of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty are visible immediately and it is an extremely gratifying treatment for patients.
There are two treatment options with Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty:
Tissue Filler has incredible potential for making changes to the nose without resorting to surgery. It can be used in just about every case to make the needed changes to the nose and MOST importantly to make the patient happy! We can straighten the nose, remove bumps, tilt the nose and much more! Not all Tissue fillers are the same and it is critical for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty that the right tissue filler is used. At The Face and Body Place we only use collagen stimulating fillers for the nose. Not all fillers are suitable for use in Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty. The fillers we use achieve outstanding long-lasting results.
Embedded Threads can either be used alone or in conjunction with Tissue filler to shape the nose you desire. Threads are used to narrow the opening of the nose. In doing this treatment you can also get some lifting of the tip of the nose.
The ultimate effect is to create balance in the nose itself and harmony with the rest of the facial structure. The treatments are highly effective in achieving this without the risks and downtime associated with surgical rhinoplasty.
When do we recommend Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is recommended for everyone who desires to change their nose but is either unsure about or does not want to have surgery. Our doctor will guide you in understanding the differences between the treatments and determining the best course of action for you!
How does it work?
We take photographs before and after the procedure so that you can see how much the treatment has changed your nose and your overall appearance.
If Tissue Fillers alone are being used then once numbing cream has been used to numb the skin for enough time, our doctor will inject the Tissue Filler into the area of the nose that needs reshaping. The use of Tissue Filler in the nose requires an artistic eye to create the correct shape for each different patient.
If the treatment is a combination of Threading and Tissue Filler, then the threads will be placed first. Thereafter the filler treatment will be done. It is possible to do both treatments in one session and our doctor will discuss the options with you.
With Threading, a pair of absorbable threads is placed under the skin at the base of the nose and then through the soft or cartilaginous part of the nose to narrow the opening of the nostrils. In doing so, the opening changes from a flattened to a more rounded appearance and the effect may also lift the tip of the nose. Tissue Filler’s are invaluable in this instance to give the nose overall balance.
What are the possible side effects/Risks of the treatment?
The results of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty are visible immediately. There may be a small amount of swelling and bruising, but this settles within a short period of time.
Slight swelling may occur at the injection site, but most patients return to their normal routine immediately. There is a minimal amount of pain experienced post-procedure. Ladies can reapply make-up immediately, so no one ever needs to know that a treatment was performed.
The longevity of the results is dependent on many factors, including your age, the area injected, the quantity of product used, the nature of the actual product used as well as your overall health and lifestyle.
What Can You / Can’t You Expect from The Treatment?
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is an incredible opportunity to revitalize your face! Critical to the success of the treatment is an agreement between you the patient and our doctor on the desired outcomes and expectations. Additional treatments can be considered and discussed to ensure that the outcomes meet your expectations!
We will explain the recovery process to you in detail and guide you as to how to return to daily living. You will experience some bruising and swelling, and these occur to varying degrees in different patients.
At The Face and Body Place, we understand the importance of returning to daily living and therefore use these post-procedure standards to ensure a speedy and uneventful recovery. Our medical team will guide you in the amount of time you need to take off from work if needed.
What if I am not based in Johannesburg?
A consultation with our resident doctor is critical in the evaluation of a patient as a candidate for liposuction. If you are unable to come to our offices for an onsite consultation with our doctor, we can also arrange for a virtual consultation (Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or by telephone). Virtual consultations are available no matter how far away or close you may live.
For Out of Town or international consultations, we are able to advise you on whether or not you are a candidate for liposuction, and if so, we will be able to assist you with all the necessary requirements and costs involved. Furthermore, our administrative team will be able to guide you on your travel and accommodation requirements.
What does Thread Lifting cost me?
At the time of our initial consultation, we will provide you with a detailed quotation that includes all the anticipated costs. These include:
- the procedure itself and the work performed by our doctor.
- services provided by our anaesthetist if this service is chosen.
Thread lifting is a cosmetic procedure not paid for by medical insurance however where laboratory tests are ordered, or prescriptions written by our doctor these will usually be covered.
Our administrative team can also assist with financing options if these are required. Click Here to go to the MediFin web page and see if this suits your needs.
Threading (Silhouette® Soft)
Thread Lift (Silhouette Soft®) also known as Threading is a revolutionary procedure for patients who
Most soft Tissue Fillers are either Hyaluronic Acid, or collagen based. Both are naturally occurring substances in the body. Hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance, is injected below the skin in areas that need plumping and filling, to temporarily reverse sagging, hollowness, and lines and wrinkles…
