A bump on nose, or dorsal hump, can affect the self-confidence of the sufferer, as can nasal asymmetry. These problems can be solved in a number of ways, and even hidden very temporarily with the right contouring and photo angles, but there is some debate about the most effective solution; we propose the no knife nose job.
Rhinoplasty is always an option for the correction of these problems but we understand that, for some people, going under the knife can be too big a step to take initially. This surgery also has prolonged downtime, and can incur scarring and swelling for up to a year after the procedure, as well as needing special care that includes instructions like avoiding direct sunlight for 3 months. These side effects and downtime are expected, however, due to the permanent nature of this treatment.
Our Non Surgical Nose Job
At PHI Clinic, we use injectable dermal fillers to correct irregularities of the nose in our no knife nose job. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring cushioning agent in the skin, which, due to its origins, does not require patch tests. HA fillers also provide longer-lasting results than collagen fillers, with a longevity of between 18 and 24 months.
Our principle idea is our namesake; ‘phi’, which represents the ideas of harmony, balance, and creativity, and has done since Ancient Greek times. Balance is key for us, as pioneered by Dr Tapan Patel, our medical director, who takes an artistic approach to each patient’s facial aesthetic in order to create the most natural, subtle results.
No Knife Nose Job
During the treatment, it is possible to have numbing cream applied to the injection area, but it is not advised as it can affect how skin reacts and encourage bruising in the area. As well as this, the fillers we use, from the Juvederm Vycross range by Allergan, contain lidocaine, an anaesthetic, that numbs as it is injected. Any concerns about anaesthetic or the treatment in general can be discussed with your assigned clinician during your consultation.
