Nasal filling, also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty, is changing the shape of the nose with filling without surgical intervention. The fillers used in these procedures are usually hyaluronic acid fillers. With these fillings, the collapses on the nasal ridge can be corrected and the visibility of the heights on the nasal ridge can be reduced.
Before the procedure, the area where the filling will be made is determined and marked. This area is filled with the help of a cannula. The process takes about 5-10 minutes.
Nasal filling aesthetics offers important advantages to patients. It is a good option for patients who do not want to have surgery or who are considering surgery but have not yet made a decision. Another advantage is that it is easy and re-applicable. After a while after the nose filling is done, the desired touches can be easily done. Due to these features, the desired shape can be obtained. However, it should be known that all desired changes in the nose cannot be made with nasal filling.
When fillings containing hyaluronic acid are used, the effect varies from person to person, but usually lasts around 6 months to 1 year. In some people, the result may become permanent. When permanent fillings are used, the effect can be long-lasting. However, the use of permanent filler injections is not recommended because they cannot be removed from the environment when a reaction to the filler develops.
There are two important disadvantages in nasal fillings. First, the result is not permanent because the fillings melt. The second disadvantage is that they can only create volume in the nose. If there is nose reduction, an advanced bump and excessive curvature, filler injection alone will not be sufficient. For this reason, it should be known that nasal fillings are not an alternative to surgical procedures. Nasal fillings are a good alternative for patients who do not want to have surgery, whose surgery may be too risky for medical or other reasons, or who do not have enough time for the recovery period required by the surgery.
After nasal filling injection, there is no need to restrict normal life. The patient returns to his normal life after the injection. There is no need to stay at home for swelling, bruising and healing. It is one of the aesthetic procedures with the highest patient satisfaction.
