Nose deformities can be annoying for both men and women. Having a large or misshapen nose can bring along many problems, especially self-confidence problems. Today, there are certain methods used to correct deformities in the nose along with revision rhinoplasty. One of these methods is the nose filling. Since it is not a non-surgical procedure, it is more preferred and does not contain any risk factors.
What is Nose Filling?
The process of making the nose aesthetic without surgery, which is performed by injection of skin filling materials, is called nose filling. Since it is a simpler procedure than rhinoplasty, it has become more preferred in recent years. With the application of the filling material, the nose becomes more symmetrical, more raised and more compatible with the face. At the same time, curvatures and minor deformities can be eliminated by nasal filling. The nose filling process can be applied for the following purposes:
- Correcting problems such as curvature and collapse on the nose,
- To eliminate the collapses in the root of the nose,
- Lifting the tip of the nose
- Gaining a symmetrical image by eliminating asymmetries,
- Straightening the back of the nose.
If there are severe deformities in the nose or if the volume of the nose is desired to be reduced, then nose surgery is required instead of nasal filling. During nasal filling, hyaluronic acid or oil taken from the patient is used. It is an extremely simple procedure with minimal risk factors.
How is Nose Filling Made?
During the nasal filling procedure, patients do not feel severe pain or pain. The steps followed during the process are:
- A local anesthetic cream is applied to the area where the procedure will be performed and it is waited for 15-20 minutes for it to become numb.
- The area is sterilized with an antiseptic solution.
- Injections are made to the area in doses deemed necessary.
The nose filling process takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes. After the procedure, the patient can return to his daily life immediately. The duration of permanence is 2 years on average.
On the other hand, nasal filling is not suitable for every person. For instance, nasal filling is not recommended for patients in the following group:
- Patients with bleeding-enhancing disease,
- pregnant or lactating women,
- Those who have an active herpes virus infection,
- Frequent herpes,
- Those who are allergic to the substance to be used.
After the patient has decided on the nose filling procedure, the necessary study on how the nose will look at the end of the procedure is carried out between the patient and the doctor.
