The Blog The Lowdown on 3 Point Rhinoplasty
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic treatment that consists of injecting dermal filler into the nose to reshape it. Becoming more and more popular in recent times, this procedure is a quick and affordable alternative to surgical options, without the need for a scalpel.
The term ‘3 Point Rhinoplasty’ describes how many areas of the nose are typically injected. These areas are:
- The nose bridge
- The nose tip
- The supporting area of the nose
By injecting dermal fillers into these 3 areas, the nose can look straighter and more even – a fantastic option for noses with a bumpy, drooping or hook appearance.
What are the benefits of 3-point rhinoplasty vs a surgical alternative?
Choosing 3 point rhinoplasty over surgical alternatives has many benefits. Due to the non-surgical nature, there are less risks involved, minimal downtime and fewer side effects whilst still producing similar results. Instead of weeks of recovery, patients undergo a treatment of less than 30 minutes and carry on with their day-to-day activities.
When undergoing surgery, results are very much permanent and if the procedure has gone wrong, it can be harder to fix. Due to the nature of dermal fillers, results are not permanent. If you don’t like the results of 3 point rhinoplasty, the fillers will naturally disappear over time or you can get them dissolved.
We currently live in an age where people want instant results without the downtime. That is what makes 3 point rhinoplasty a fantastic alternative to undergoing surgery. Patients can walk in and out in the same day without worrying about the recovery time.
Will it hurt and are there any side effects?
A commonly asked question and the short answer is no. Most fillers that are used contain a type of local anaesthetic, so the procedure is mainly quick and painless. When using a professional clinic such as Contour Clinics, products are approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), ensuring quality and safety.
The most common side effects are redness, swelling, bruising and tenderness due to the nature of the injection. These will resolve promptly within a few days and are not of any concern. As with any cosmetic filler, other side effects can include allergic reactions, so it is best to speak with your clinician in more detail if you are concerned.
