Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Bella Plastic Surgery offers the Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty procedure that uses injectable gel-like products that contain hyaluronic acid, to ‘conceal’ the dorsal hump found on the bridge of the nose, elevate the nose tip, and make other adjustments to improve the appearance of the nasal contour.

What types of Hyaluronic Acid based products are used?

We use only the highest quality of TGA approved hyaluronic acid based products to achieve long-lasting results. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring complex sugar molecules that bind with water to support your skin and increase volume in selected areas. At Bella Plastic Surgery, we prefer to use semi-permanent hyaluronic acid based products , which is a firm product, that is less likely to spread when injecting into the bridge of the nose – other softer hyaluronic aid based products, are more likely to spread at the time of injection. Semi-permanent hyaluronic aid based products are also designed to last much longer when compared to other, more softer hyaluronic aid based products.

How long do the results last?

Your improved nasal contour will typically last for 18 to 24 months.

What is the recovery time?

You may experience some minor swelling and bruising on and around the treated area. Following your procedure, you can apply makeup 24 hours following your treatment, to conceal bruising and we will recommend the best types of make-up to use.

Potential Risks

Every non-surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk, and it is important that you understand these risks and the possible complications associated. The majority of patients do not experience the following, but you should discuss each possible risk with your physician to ensure that you understand the risks and can make an informed decision regarding your treatment.

Common side effects may occur immediately or maybe delayed and include but are not limited to the following:

  • Bruising
  • Bleeding/Haematoma
  • Inflammatory Reactions (swelling, Skin redness)
  • Itchiness
  • Tenderness
  • Paraesthesia/Numbness

Other adverse reactions may include:

  • Induration or nodules
  • Skin Discoloration
  • Weak filling effect
  • Infections including abscesses, granuloma, hypersensitivity

Extremely rare but serious adverse events associated with intravascular injection of hyaluronic aid based products have been reported and include temporary and permanent visual impairment, blindness, cerebral ischemia or cerebral haemorrhage, leading to stroke, skin necrosis, and damage to underlying structures.

To prevent and/or help minimise any bruising after your Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty treatment:  

  • Application of a cold compress to the treatment area immediately and for at least 15minutes after. 
  • The regular intermittent application of cold packs during the first 24-48 hours may be beneficial. A cycle to consider is 10min on and 5min off. 
  • Sleep with the head elevated for the first evening. 
  • Vigorous exercise can increase blood pressure and aggravate any bruising that is developing – therefore, exercise should be avoided for the first 24 hours. 
  • You should avoid extreme heat for the first 24hrs (or until bruising has resolved). 
  • Topical creams that may help with bruising – reduction in the development and helping in the resolution. 
  • Arnica cream – apply liberally to affected area 3-4x per day until resolution 
  • Vitamin k cream – apply liberally to affected area 3-4x per day until resolution
