Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular and common plastic surgery procedures not only in Australia but all over the world. Though many have undergone this face-altering procedure, many are still hesitant to try it because either they are scared that they wouldn’t like the transformation, or they do not want the downtime that the surgery would entail. Well, there is now a procedure that would fit their criteria – the 5 minute nose job. What is this new nose reshaping process, and how does it work? Let us all find out.
The 5 minute nose job: What is it?
The 5 minute nose job is a nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure that comprises of a soft tissue injection to create a well-formed, proportioned and natural-looking transformation of the nose and nasofacial ratio. Injection of dermal fillers on problem areas of the nose would hide imperfections and smoothen out bumps that most patients complain about their noses. It can also create an illusion of your nose becoming smaller instead of flaring or too projected.
The 5 minute nose job: How is it performed?
The procedure can be performed in a doctor’s office or an outpatient cosmetic clinic. Local anaesthesia is introduced to the nasal area, and then dermal fillers are injected in strategic areas located during the initial consultation that would enhance the contour and proportion of your nose. Within minutes, you can see the difference the injection made to your nasal profile, although swelling and bruising may appear a few hours to a day after your procedure. Support tapes may be placed, and you are good to go!
The 5 minute nose job: Is it permanent?
This nonsurgical rhinoplasty is not a permanent nose reshaping procedure. Depending on the filler material that you would use, the 5-minute nose job may last for at least three months to almost a year. This may be a positive or a negative remark to some people. For those who are just curious as to how they would look after a nasal procedure and are scared of the risks and complications a surgical rhinoplasty would entail, then having a temporary nose job is all it takes. However, if you are looking for a permanent fix, this nonsurgical rhinoplasty may not be the one for you. You may try this one out first before jumping into the decision of going under the knife; if you like what you see after the temporary nose job, maybe it is time for you to get that surgical rhinoplasty.
The 5 minute nose job: What nasal flaws can it address?
The 5-minute nose job’s primary goal is to make your nose fit the proportion of your face, in relation to its height, width, and projection. So this injection rhinoplasty, as others would call it, targets attributes that focus on the aesthetic side of the nose. These include:
- Nasal flaring
- Bumps or deformities on the nose bridge
- Bulbous, pinched, or droopy tips
- Wide nose/ nostrils
- Crooked nose
However, if your reason for having a rhinoplasty is due to its functional aspect (you are recommended for a nose job because it would address you sleeping or breathing problems), then this is not the rhinoplasty procedure for you.
Enhancing your beauty is becoming more and more possible and attainable with the development of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Knowing your priorities and giving importance to your personal safety at all times is the most important thing to remember when considering undergoing such nonsurgical treatments.
