Fake-looking noses are everywhere. Unfortunately, those that have them are often the last to know. Your nose is one of the most sensitive, delicate and sensual parts of your entire body. Its movement and appearance are often a key feature for individuals as they communicate with us. Don’t trust your nose with just anyone! Whether you are born with a small nose or have developed bumps over time from injuries and etc. a non-surgical rhinoplasty is a proven way to restore shape, volume, or projection. Injections are cost effective and can be done during your lunch break, which is why we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Barrett as soon as possible!
People benefit most from lip augmentation if they want to:
- Increase or reduce nose size or add some volume to deflated regions
- Fill shallow areas and recover some facial contour
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Elevate sunken scars
Results and Recovery
The procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour. During the procedure, Dr. Barrett will use Juvederm, an FDA-approved formula made of hyaluronic acid (a natural substance found in normal human tissues) that is widely used to treat wrinkles and augment noses. The average lip injection patient uses one syringe (1cc), but this can vary depending on the condition of your lips. Many patients will find that this procedure is not nearly as painful as expected. Dr. Barrett takes numerous precautions to make your experience as painless as possible including numbing cream, ice packs, and numbing injection medicine. Most people claim that a shot in the arm hurts worse than nose injections performed by Dr. Barrett.
Post-surgery, the nose may become swollen temporarily, sometimes up to one week, with accompanying bruising. Swelling can often be confused for a bad result, so we recommend patients wait a week to let the swelling subside. In cases of excessive swelling, Juvederm can be dissolved within minutes with a dissolving agent.
