Nose Job Bioplasty: This is a technique used to lift the tip of the nose, projecting it forward, improving the alar nose appearance.
In order to lift the nose by increasing the nasal-labial angle, a small orifice is made with a 40 x 1,2 mm needle at the nasal base and a microcannula is inserted up to the anterior nasal spine. Circa 0,15 ml (depending of the nose) of PMMA of 30% is injected, which is equivalent to 5 clicks of the injection pistol.
With nose bioplasty, we are able to lift, thin and project the tip of the nose, reduce the nasal base, and improve nasal dorsal appearance. This is a safe procedure performed with local anesthesia and with minimal bleeding. It usually takes approximately 40 minutes. Patients are required to wear bandaging for a period of 7 to 15 days, depending on the procedure.
Results of nose bioplasty are permanent.
This is a very simple procedure, and the patient is awake and able to follow the proceedings. The implant can be reshaped within 4 days of the procedure, when the suspension of molecules – cellulose colloids or gel – depending of the implant, are absorbed and substituted with collagen that is being made by the patient’s organism as a response to the stimuli that PMMA causes on fibroblasts.
A follow-up appointment is scheduled 7 days after the procedure. Patients must wear bandaging on the tip of the nose for 7 days, and for 15 days if the procedure was performed at the dorsal region of the nose.
Complications are virtually nonexistent, for the procedure is done with the use of local anesthetics and via a blunt-tipped microcannula that does not cause any type of neurovascular lesions. Bleeding is minimal and no cuts or stitches are made.
