Non-Surgical Asian Rhinoplasty Edmonton

Whether we care to admit it or not, the nose is often the first feature we notice on someone’s face. This is especially true for those who were born with a prominent nose. You may have stunning eyes and sculpted cheekbones, but these features tend to be overlooked if your nose stands out due to bumps or unevenness.

Like everything else, noses come in all shapes and sizes. If you’re hoping to minimize the less desirable aspects of your nose while accentuating your more attractive features, the non-surgical rhinoplasty offers the perfect solution.

Using this non-invasive procedure, it’s Dr. Sharma’s intention to keep your appearance natural looking. He reshapes the feature you were born with into one that fits more seamlessly with your facial profile. This discreet method creates facial symmetry, transforming you into the most beautiful version of yourself.

Traditional Rhinoplasty and the Nonsurgical Method

Rhinoplasty surgery no longer serves as the only choice for enhancing the face’s central feature and providing facial symmetry. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty offers the opportunity to create change without committing to the more invasive and permanent surgical rhinoplasty. A nonsurgical nose job takes less than 20 minutes and delivers instantaneous results for the unique concerns each patient has.

Patients need not worry about a list of potential risks and side effects or weeks of painful recovery following surgery. And what’s more, the non-intrusive method is far more affordable.

The Nonsurgical Procedure and its Benefits

Using injectable fillers, which create volume and contours where skin has naturally lost elasticity and volume, Dr. Sharma can delicately transform a range of issues, including:

  • Smoothing out bumps
  • Correcting asymmetry
  • Improving shape post-injury
  • Raising or pointing the tip
  • Creating roundness

The fillers Dr. Sharma uses are temporary, meaning the effects of the nonsurgical nose job are not permanent. Patients can expect to return for maintenance after 6-9 months. For those who choose not to repeat the procedure, the nose will simply return to its original appearance as the tissue absorbs the fillers.

Ideal Candidates

A prospective patient may consider this procedure in order to correct issues caused from injury or simply to enhance their overall aesthetic. Regardless of the reason, candidates include those who:

  • Wish to immediately improve minor imperfections of their nose.
  • Aren’t ready to commit to the permanency of the surgical rhinoplasty.
  • Don’t qualify for surgery for medical reasons.

For men and women looking for a dramatic reduction in the size of their nose, or for improvements to their breathing, the traditional rhinoplasty may be necessary.

The delicate nature of the nonsurgical rhinoplasty ensures minimal pain during the procedure and very little down time afterward. A patient can expect minor swelling and bruising for up to 48 hours following the procedure, most of which can be hidden using makeup.

In an Asian face, no feature commands more attention than the nose. It takes center stage and is often the first facial feature other people notice. There are some significant differences between the Asian nose and those of their Caucasian counterparts including the height of the bridge, and width of the tip and nostrils. A lot of Asian noses require greater height and projection, as well as refinement of the tip and nostrils while Caucasian noses quite often require some form of reduction.

Of course, there are many cultural and personal aesthetic preferences and subtle differences that should also be taken into account. Your nose is unique to you, and we want to ensure your rhinoplasty will be too. We don’t look to change the features that make your face unique, but instead seek to leave you with natural looking results, so you will still look like yourself, but in a more aesthetically pleasing way.

The Downside Of Invasive Rhinoplasty Surgery

Rhinoplasty surgery for Asian patients is one of the most complicated procedures a surgeon may perform. Surgically changing the appearance of the Asian nose in a way that does not compromise the nasal structure and still looks natural is not an easy task.

The surgical risk, downtime, and cost involved with this invasive surgical procedure is considerable, and there can be significant side effects. However, there is a non-surgical alternative that Dr. Sharma is pleased to offer that involves injecting long lasting filler materials to add height and projection along the nasal bridge and to the tip area.

The benefits of using filler include no surgery or recovery time associated with surgery, minimal swelling and bruising, a softer feel, the ability to shape and mold the filler for a more natural look and capacity to customize the amount of filler injected.

What Is Asian Rhinoplasty

The term Asian Rhinoplasty came about because the Caucasian nose and the Asian nose are very different – Asians typically have shorter noses that can be wider at the base with less projection than the average Caucasian nose.

What Asian and Caucasian patients are looking to achieve from their rhinoplasty procedures are also vastly different – Caucasian patients are typically seeking a way to reduce or balance a ‘dorsal hump’ while Asian patients want a way to increase the height of their nose bridge and definition of the nose tip.

Treating The Concerns Of Asian Patients With Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical Asian Rhinoplasty is unique and requires not only specialized expertise but also a keen eye for Asian beauty. The ideal nose isn’t just tall and projected but should also look natural and balanced regardless of the angle it is viewed from. Some of the distinct characteristics of Asian noses are easy to see while others extend deep below the skin’s surface. The Asian nasal framework and nasal bones typically differ from other ethnicities.

A low nasal bridge places more emphasis and brings attention to the nasal tip, giving it the appearance that it is bigger than it truly is. If the bridge is made higher and defined better, the tip is no longer the major visible part of the nose. A well-defined bridge brings the tip into proportion with the rest of the nose, diminishing its appearance, so it no longer attracts as much attention. A more defined bridge also gives the nose a stronger appearance and in turn makes the face more proportional and symmetric.

Giving Better Definition To The Nose Tip

Compared to other ethnic groups, the tip of the Asian nose tolerates slightly less definition and projection and is found to be rounder.

Changing the size and definition of the nose tip isn’t easy, but it can usually be done. Bringing more definition to the tip requires careful filler injections so that there is no overall increase in size. Hyaluronic Acid Injections can also help to reduce the size of the tip, making it appear less rounded and more square.

Why Is Non-Surgical Asian Rhinoplasty A Popular Choice?

  • It’s quick and easy (Average time is about 10 minutes).
  • The procedure is relatively painless.
  • Compared to Rhinoplasty plastic surgery the procedure is affordable.
  • You will see the results immediately.
  • More or less filler can be injected into certain areas to customize the appearance of the nose.

How Is The Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Procedure Performed?

  • Nose shape is designed and marked on the nose based on your personal requirements.
  • A local anesthetic is injected in the nose so that the filler injection is painless.
  • The filler is injected carefully into the specific areas of the nose.
  • Common fillers used include Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal products
  • The filler is then molded to sculpt the desired nose shape.
  • This whole procedure takes 10 minutes.

What Are The Complications?

The most common complication is localized injection-related bruising, needle mark and swelling. This typically can last up to a week but can be disguised with makeup. Allergic reactions to the fillers also happen, but they are very rare.

Why Do Some People Bruise More Than Others?

There are some small capillaries located under the skin that is not visible to the naked eye. During the injection process, one of these capillaries can be injured, and bruising can occur.

How Long Does It Last?

Hyaluronic acid nose fillers typically last between 6–9 months. This can vary significantly depending on the individual and how quickly their body metabolizes the filler.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty involves injecting filler to straighten a nasal profile, lift a droopy tip, smooth out visible bumps or add height and projection along the nasal bridge.

For patients looking to correct mild imperfections in the aesthetic appearance of their nose, non-surgical rhinoplasty is becoming an attractive alternative to surgery.

The advantage of this technique is that it doesn’t involve surgery, there is minimal swelling and bruising, and it allows for the ability to shape and mold the filler for a more natural look. However, a non-surgical nose job can’t make a larger nose appear smaller or improve breathing, so it may not be for everyone.

The results last as long as the filler exists in the nasal tissues. Depending on the filler used, the results can last anywhere from six months to two years or more.
