Apart from the eyes and mouth, the nose is our most important facial feature. It is not for nothing that we speak of something obvious being “as plain as the nose on your face”. Unfortunately, it is not only boxers who have crooked noses. Even without any external cause, we may have an ugly nose shape that we find bothersome and unattractive.
Nasal correction without surgery
Many corrections can be made to the nose nowadays without surgery. The advantage of a gentle nasal correction without surgery is that it avoids anaesthesia, postoperative wound pain, bleeding and resulting long downtime. Moreover, the corrections are reversible. All changes can be reversed. With surgery this is obviously not so simple to do.
Hyaluronan and botulinum toxin for nasal correction
Hyaluronic acid can be used, for example, to reduce a nose bump or even make it disappear completely, as well as to straighten a slightly crooked nose (this has no effect on the nasal septum)
A combination of hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin can be effective in raising the nose tip. Botulinum toxin, particularly can be used for patients who pull the nose down when laughing.
Botulinum toxin can also be a very effective treatment for so-called “nasal flutter”.
This also has a narrowing effect on the nostrils. This effect can be strengthened by applying hyaluronic acid to various locations (e.g. above the nose tip and between the nostrils along the nasal septum and at its base)
