Medical Rhinoplasty

The nose is a common source of complexes in many of our patients. Sometimes, certain abnormalities can cause really heavy discomfort with a psychological but also social impact.

Aesthetic medicine now offers a non-invasive solution that responds effectively to various nasal imperfections. Injections of hyaluronic acid in the nose make it possible to avoid surgical rhinoplasty.

What is medical rhinoplasty?

medical rhinoplasty involves injections of hyaluronic acid into the nose. As opposed to surgical rhinoplasty , which involves the use of general anesthesia as well as a variable recovery period, medical rhinoplasty is a quick and gentle act with almost no consequences.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural part of our organism and thus of our skin. Molecule extremely well tolerated, it represents a solution of choice for various signs of aging as well as for anomalies such as dark circles or irregularities of the nose.

Indications for rhinoplasty without surgery

Hyaluronic acid has a volumizing effect and will therefore increase the volume of the injected area. Hence the fact that a medical correction is not suitable for all the imperfections of the nose. It is therefore essential to start by checking your eligibility for medical rhinoplasty treatment.

Faced with a set of needs, your doctor can possibly direct you towards the need for surgery:

  • A nose that you find imposing: too long or too big
  • deviated nasal septum with an impact on respiratory function
  • An imposing base of the nose: a wide and large tip , wide wings of the nose
  • A large exterior or interior bump

Any situation that requires a modification of the bone and/or cartilaginous architecture of the nose cannot be based on an injection of hyaluronic acid.

On the other hand, the properties of hyaluronic acid make it possible to respond to various indications:

  • drooping tip of the nose that you want to lift
  • small bump on the nose that you want to rectify
  • nose that is too small and you want to lengthen it
  • minor hollow in the nose that you consider unsightly
  • Asymmetry in the volumes of the nose

After surgical rhinoplasty , some touch-ups and corrections with hyaluronic acid may be recommended.

It is during your consultation appointment that an examination of the nose and listening to your expectations allows us to determine the treatment methods best suited to your needs .

What precautions before medical rhinoplasty?

The information concerning the precautions to be taken before and after the procedure will be communicated to you by your doctor.

Medications such as anticoagulants , aspirin and anti-inflammatories must be stopped before injections. Depending on the initial indication, the opinion of your medical specialist may be sought. It is also recommended to stop smoking one month before the treatment.

Pregnancy and/or breastfeeding as well as a known allergy are contraindications to hyaluronic acid injections.

How is a medical rhinoplasty performed at Skin Marceau?

The elimination of possible contraindications is sought before treatment.

A medical rhinoplasty is performed in the clinic and lasts only a few minutes: generally between 20 to 30 minutes.

Like most treatments with hyaluronic acid injections, no downtime is necessary following the procedure. Some redness or slight swelling may be observed but fade very quickly.

It is also possible to smooth the wrinkles installed around the nose if indicated and as part of an anti-aging gesture.

Is injection rhinoplasty painful?

One of the advantages of medical rhinoplasty is its non-invasive and almost painless nature. In front of a particular sensitivity, the application of an anesthetic cream is possible.

What are the results of rhinoplasty without surgery?

The assessment of the results of a surgical rhinoplasty is optimal a few days after the treatment.

Hyaluronic acid is gradually absorbable and the effects generally last between 12 and 24 months. Beyond that, maintenance injections must be performed in order to maintain a stable aesthetic result. The results of a surgical rhinoplasty are otherwise permanent.

In order to optimize the results and to secure the suites, some advice must be followed after the treatment: avoid massaging the injected area, do not frequent saunas, hammams and all places that are sources of significant heat.

We insist that we use the best products on the market. At Skin Marceau, we work with Juvéderm® , injectable hyaluronic acid from Allergan laboratories.
