Harmony Facial Plastic Surgery In Nashville
Did you inherit a nose shape that seems too angular? Or do you have a bump on the bridge of your nose? Have you considered a nose job but don’t really like the idea of surgery? A non-surgical solution may be the solution to creating the nose you want without the downtime and risks of surgery.
Dr. Kate O’Connor is extensively trained in traditional nose surgery, but that is not the answer for every patient. For those who would rather not go under the knife, she also offers non-surgical rhinoplasty in Nashville at her plastic surgery clinic. Even though it’s a non-surgical solution, you still need a skilled surgeon like Dr. O’Connor.
Nashville Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as liquid rhinoplasty or a liquid nose job, refers to the use of dermal fillers to change the shape of your nose. The filler, usually hyaluronic acid, is injected under the skin in those areas where volume can smooth out the shape of your nose.
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, gel-like substance that is naturally found in your skin and connective tissue. It keeps your skin moisturized. You may have used moisturizers and other topical solutions or taken supplements that have hyaluronic acid as an ingredient. When it is injected under the skin, it can reduce wrinkles and assist the skin in looking firmer. In addition, it can speed healing.
Hyaluronidase, an enzyme that can reverse the effects of hyaluronic injections, will be available as a safeguard in case there are any negative side effects. It is also used if you have had previous treatments so that all fillers are dissolving at the same rate.
This is not a treatment to be performed by just anyone. It should be done only by someone with a detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the nose and experience in completing successful surgical nose jobs. Dr. Kate O’Connor provides both surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty in Nashville and understands the need for caution in both procedures.
Holistic Plastic Surgery In Nashville
Your nose is the central and usually the most noticeable feature of your face. If you are displeased with aspects of your nose and do not want to undergo surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty can improve the shape of your nose. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is a relatively painless in-office procedure. There is no downtime, and it can literally be done during a lunch break. The liquid nose job is less expensive than surgical rhinoplasty, although the effects are not permanent.
Dr. O’Connor in Nashville
You are a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty if you have specific areas of your nose that you want to be improved. The procedure is well-suited to the patient who wants to lessen the look of bumps or the angularity of their nose.
If you are not able to take the amount of time off from your usual activities that a traditional nose job would require, or if you want immediate results, a liquid rhinoplasty may be right for you. You need to have realistic expectations. This procedure cannot make your nose look smaller, but it can even out your profile by adding volume around existing bumps. It does not treat any functional issues like breathing problems that a traditional rhinoplasty can fix. If you want a non-surgical nose job in Nashville, however, Dr. Kate O’Connor has the training to improve your nose shape.
Unique Skills. Compassionate Care.
Dr. O’Connor will first spend time listening to what changes you wish to make to your nose. She will evaluate your overall health, discuss your options and what you can expect with the non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure.
She will numb the area for the injections, but anesthesia is not necessary. You may feel the prick of the needle as it is inserted under your skin. Depending on the imperfections you want to be treated, Dr. O’Connor will inject the filler into the bridge or tip or other areas of your nose to get your desired effect. Since filler dissolves over time, if this is a repeat treatment, she may use hyaluronidase to dissolve any remaining filler so that you are starting fresh. The whole process takes less than half an hour.
Recovery in Nashville
There is no downtime and you can resume your activities right after the non-surgical nose job. You may have some mild swelling and some redness lasting for no more than a few days. You will need to avoid applying pressure to your nose for a week. For a liquid nose job in Nashville, Kate O’Connor, M.D., offers a safe procedure that can result in an improved profile.
Results in Nashville
You will notice the improvements immediately. Your nose may be more symmetrical. The tip of your nose may be more attractive. The ridge may be raised. Bumps will be smoothed. Small changes can make a huge difference in the appearance of the nose. The non-surgical nose job can give you a lower-risk preview of what a traditional rhinoplasty could do. The results from the liquid nose job are not permanent but should last a year or longer. Additional injections can be done when the initial filler starts to dissolve.
