Nose augmentation for men without surgery
A lot of men suffer from a negatively impacted confidence due to the appearance of their noses. Sport accidents, especially from rugby and boxing, may have left them with a nasal bump or deviation. It is common to feel conscious about it and yet the idea of going under the knife for open corrective surgery can often be terrifying, or certainly the side-effects associated with it can be.
Non-surgical nose reshaping has completely revolutionised the cosmetic industry in terms of rhinoplasty. Dramatic and life-changing results can now be achieved without the scarring, downtime and cost associated with conventional open surgery. Non-surgical nose reshaping is particularly popular among individuals with a curved or hook shaped nose, or a bump on the nasal bridge. The effect is instant, making it a very popular procedure. Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, there will be no general anaesthesia, plaster cast or long downtime. There is virtually no downtime with dermal filler. In Hollywood, it is known as lunch time nose job!
Dermal filler is used in non-surgical nose reshaping; it consists of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is found naturally under our skin with important structural function and is responsible for fullness and firmness of the skin. Non-surgical reshaping using dermal filler typically lasts between 12-18 months. Perhaps the main benefit of using dermal filler is that its effects can be reversed, giving you a safety net and extra peace of mind when it comes to nose reshaping.
