If you have an area of your nose that is too low or too flat, you may require volume during your rhinoplasty. There are common places that need volume such as your bridge, sidewall and your tip. Another area on your nose that may require more volume is on the edge of your nostril. If your nostril is high, it can sometimes benefit from an addition of volume.
There are times when you can achieve added volume without undergoing surgery. If you’re not prepared to take the step to get surgical rhinoplasty to add volume, then non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty may be the right choice for you. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be applied to cases that need a bridge build up, to lift a droopy nose or to correct asymmetries caused by deviations.
To add height, volume or symmetry Dr. Ransom can use temporary dermal filler called Radiesse. Radiesse is made of biocompatible calcium hydroxyapatite – a normal part of your bones and connective tissue to act as firm filler.
Things to know about Radiesse
- The injections last between 12 and 18 months
- You cannot make your nose smaller using this non-surgical method
- The procedure will enhance your lines and contours of different parts of your nose.
- Ransom and his staff will make your process as pain-free and comfortable as possible.
- This procedure may be stand-alone or performed alongside other aesthetic treatments as well.
