Why More People Are Opting for Non-Surgical Facial AugmentationMay 28, 2018
More and more people, both male and female, are opting for non-surgical facial augmentation, and for a wider variety of features. Just what is non-surgical facial augmentation and how does it work? Well, there are a few different methods, depending on your concerns.
The procedure we’re asked about most (after requests for more luscious lips) is non-surgical rhinoplasty, or nasal reshaping. The nose is the most prominent feature on the face, and many people want it altered in some way, but without the surgery. For this, we bring in a thicker, firmer dermal filler that can hold shape. Fillers can be used to camouflage a dorsal lump or crookedness. They can also create a bridge on flatter-looking noses.
Another common procedure is facial slimming to create a more contoured jawline. For this, we inject anti-wrinkle products into the masseter muscles. You can still smile and speak naturally, but the product reduces movement in just the right spots so that the muscle softens and shrinks. This procedure takes a few months to work, but it’s becoming more popular as more people seek less invasive alternatives to surgery.
While some people want to reduce volume around the jawline, others want to increase volume around the cheekbones to bring back a youthful look. With the right filler, we can also lift the eyebrow to reduce the appearance of sagging skin above the eyelid.
Here are some reasons our patients have chosen this route over surgery:
1. No Downtime
These procedures take about 20 minutes or less. You can have them done on your way out of the office, then go right out to dinner.
2. Subtler Changes
Times have changed and cosmetic treatments that were once taboo are now viewed as common practice. Patients can speak openly about their treatments, which creates a more supportive environment. If you do prefer a bit of discretion, though, non-surgical procedures make that easier. There is no downtime and a good provider can create subtle, natural-looking results so nobody knows unless you tell them.
3. Less Risky
Joan Rivers famously wished she had a twin so she could know what she looked like without plastic surgery. According to RealSelf.com “worth it” ratings, most users are happy with their facial augmentation decisions, but if you happen to change your mind after non-surgical facial augmentation, it can be adjusted or undone. Anti-wrinkle products wear off and dermal fillers can be dissolved with a simple injection.
4. Less Expensive
The adage is true: don’t go cheap on shoes, beds or doctors, but you can still be price conscious about your treatment type. Surgery has added expenses such as hospital and anaesthetist fees, follow up appointments, and you may have to miss work. At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we only charge for the amount of filler and antiwrinkle product used, and your follow up appointment is complimentary, so you don’t have to break the bank to get a new look.
5. You can Test the Waters
Surgery is a big decision. If you are considering surgical rhinoplasty, jowl reduction, or cheekbone enhancement, non-surgical facial augmentation can help you test out a new look before making the big commitment.
