Rhinoplasty is a tricky thing to get right – not so much aesthetically, but in terms of the psychological effect it can have on you. When you have been used to seeing the same face looking back at you every time you look in the mirror for 20 years, to suddenly have a new nose can be quite a shock and many people find it too much to take.
Don’t leave it too late
There has been quite a media frenzy about young girls having aesthetic treatments over the past few months, and while I’m sure no cosmetic doctor, in London or elsewhere, would condone the practice of performing Botox on a 17 year old, rhinoplasty is actually one procedure which it is better to have when you are younger – perhaps not in your teens, but certainly in your early twenties, when your face has only recently finished developing so you are still used to seeing changes.
A practice run
However young you are though, a surgical rhinoplasty is a major operation and not a decision to be taken lightly, but many people don’t realise there is any other option.
In fact, in the practised hands of an advanced cosmetic doctor, dermal fillers can be used very effectively to reshape a nose. Whilst it is not possible to make a large nose smaller using non-surgical rhinoplasty, we can straighten an uneven nose, build up a flat nose, or reduce the appearance of any bumps. Often, when a nose is straightened, people find it gives the impression of being smaller, even when it has not actually reduced in size.
If you have been considering surgical rhinoplasty but are not quite sure if it is for you, non-surgical nose reshaping at Dr Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic in Mayfair can give you a good idea of the results you can expect, without the permanence of surgery.
A long-term alternative
Many patients find that the results they get from dermal filler nose reshaping are so good that they no longer wish to undergo the trauma of rhinoplasty surgery. Whilst you do need to return to the clinic for maintenance treatments every six to twelve months, the results from non-surgical rhinoplasty can last for as long as you want.
