5 Key Points on Injectable Fillers in Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty has long been a trend in aesthetics. Fillers in the nose can be done at almost all beauty clinics. Someone says that these injections are in serious competition with surgical rhinoplasty. Here are the facts about beauty shots.

Risk of tissue necrosis

To prevent this, the doctor must control the volume of the injected drug. The fact is that the stronger the deformation or asymmetry of the nose, the more solution needs to be injected, and this already gives the chance for complications. 

Large volumes of any foreign material injected can cause ischemia, in other words, a violation of the blood supply. And this makes a broad way to tissue necrosis. Not a single facial plastic surgeon will undertake to correct gross deformities of the nose with the help of injections.

Cannula vs needle

Our nose consists of whole labyrinths of a complex vascular system. And in order not to damage it, the plastic surgeon most often uses a cannula for invasive procedures.

In the case of filler injection with a syringe needle, the likelihood of damage to the vessel increases. If this happens, there is no time to waste: within 1-2 hours, a change in skin color occurs. It can turn blue, red, white, pink-white. All these color changes are true signs of the onset of ischemia in the nasal region. 

If the doctor worked with fillers based on hyaluronic acid, there is no need to worry. The antidote hyaluronidase will immediately dissolve the filler. But if the correction is supposed to be using another drug, then oops. You can get a complication in the form of necrosis. And then only plastic surgery can correct the situation.

Necessity of a break between corrections

Filler needs to be completely dissolved between correction procedures. The problem is that the continuous correction of defects in the nose with the help of gels can lead to the appearance of the same ischemia in this area. 

It will be especially difficult for perfectionists when, after a few months, the filler does not seem to be completely absorbed, but the effect is not so good-looking. Perhaps the doctor will make a correction for you, without waiting for the drug to go away completely, but your nose will be in trouble, not his.

Correction with fillers is not suitable for everyone

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is usually effective in patients with thick skin and in cases where the correction of the nose tip is necessary. However, it is inappropriate to carry out non-invasive rhinoplasty on thin skin, since there is a high risk of the contour shifting.

Injections are also contraindicated for those who need changes in the nasal dorsum, whether it be the removal of a hump or narrowing of the bridge of the nose in the bone region.

In general, the possibilities of fillers for nasal restoration are limited, they are not subject to what plastic surgery can do. It will not be possible to radically change the shape of the nose or correct very strong asymmetries.

Contouring as a bonus

Everyone loves promotions, discounts and even more bonuses. If you are no exception, then here is some useful information for you: the volume of filler in a syringe is at least five times the amount that your nose needs. For the leftovers not to disappear, most doctors offer their patients to undergo contouring of the cheekbones, eyebrows or chin for a less payment, or even costless. 

The fact is that nose fillers are no different from those used in face contouring. Therefore, when planning to undergo an injection rhinoplasty procedure, you should ask your doctor about this possibility in advance. By the way, 99% of patients use it.
