For those who want to modify the shape of their nose to look their best this holiday season, traditional rhinoplasty surgery really isn’t an option. But nonsurgical rhinoplasty is and we perform it here, at MilfordMD, as a ‘lunchtime’ procedure.
Milford, PA (PRWEB) December 07, 2016
MilfordMD is now offering free cosmetic consultations in the month of December for last minute treatments before the holidays. Most people are familiar with rhinoplasty, a surgical nose reshaping procedure that can permanently and dramatically alter the shape of one’s nose. What many don’t know is that going through surgery and the weeks or months of recovery from rhinoplasty may not be necessary. In fact, there is a nonsurgical option to nose reshaping that involves the use of specific fillers.
“We perform nonsurgical nose reshaping as a ‘lunchtime’ procedure in the office. The procedure, itself, might take only 15 minutes. It’s relatively painless. We use a topical anesthetic to prevent pain. Results last for up to a year or more. And there’s little to no downtime,” says cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richard Buckley, medical director of MilfordMD Cosmetic Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center, in Milford, Penn. “For those who want to modify the shapes of their noses to look their best before the 2016 holiday season, traditional rhinoplasty surgery really isn’t an option. But nonsurgical rhinoplasty is.”
Dr. Buckley says that physicians experienced in the use of cosmetic fillers can artistically and subtly camouflage small nose shape deformities, such as a slight hump on the bridge; change or slightly lift the nasal tip; fill depressions; even, make a curved nose appear straighter. Fillers can’t reduce the size of the nose.
“Using the nonsurgical approach to nose reshaping doesn’t offer as dramatic or long-lasting results as a surgical procedure can, but many people don’t want dramatic changes. They want subtle, almost unnoticeable changes that help to correct something that has been bugging them for a long time,” Dr. Buckley says. “As for longevity, we have patients who come in about every one to three years to have their noses touched up. It’s not inconvenient and gives people the chance to modify results from year to year.”
The cosmetic surgeon says he uses specific fillers to accomplish the task. “Hyaluronic acid fillers, including Restylane, Juvéderm or the calcium hydroxyapatite filler Radiesse work well in nose reshaping,” he says.
Nonsurgical nose reshaping isn’t new. Surgeons attempted to use fillers, including silicone, which is permanent, at the turn of the 19th century to correct nose deformities. But those early attempts often weren’t successful because the fillers they used, such as liquid paraffin, were harmful. Refinements the procedure and the availability of many new filler types in recent decades have made the procedure a successful and popular option.
“It’s amazing how we can change the look of the nose with slight adjustments with fillers,” Dr. Buckley says. “For example, a nose that has a low bridge and almost nonexistent tip can look more cosmetically pleasing with just a bit of filler into the tip and dorsum. Or we can make a bumpy looking nose look much straighter with a filler.”
A prominent facial feature, changes to the nose—no matter how subtle—can have dramatic effects on the overall facial appearance, according to the cosmetic surgeon. “While there are potential complications with even nonsurgical procedures, those complications tend to be far less than with surgery. Nonsurgical nose reshaping is safe and effective for temporary modifications to the nose,” Dr. Buckley says. “With the holidays right around the corner, patients can come in with their old noses and leave minutes later with their new noses. There is usually no swelling or bruising, and if there is, it subsidies usually in about 48 hours.
