Rhinoplasty is the reshaping of the nose for
cosmetic or reconstructive purposes. It is one of the most popular
and desired cosmetic procedures but, understandably, many
patients are concerned about undergoing surgery due to the
potential complications and the risk of unfavourable results.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is sometimes referred to
as the '15-minute nose job'. It is a safe, non-invasive
alternative to surgery for people who wish to change the shape
of their noses. The procedure uses dermal fillers - injected in
small amounts in precise locations - to change the shape and
contour of your nose.
At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, our dermal filler
treatments are very much tailored to the individual in order to
leave your nose looking natural, attractive, and in harmony
with the rest of your face. We will always strive to give you a
naturally fabulous end result that exceeds your expectations
and makes you feel confident about your appearance.
To find out whether you are a candidate for
non-surgical rhinoplasty, you are invited to book a consultation at
the Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic.
Types of Dermal Filler
At Cardiff Cosmetic
Clinic, we use a range of hyaluronic acid fillers, such
as JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE®. These are non-permanent
fillers and their effects typically last for six to 12 months.
The hyaluronic acid
used in these dermal fillers is produced biosynthetically by
bacterial fermentation. (Hyaluronic acid is a natural
substance that is found throughout your body. It gives volume to
the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their
We use longer lasting
calcium hydroxyl appatite RADIESSE®
fillers. RADIESSE® is a unique dermal
filler made from synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA)
microspheres in a water based gel carrier. It is 100%
biocompatible, so no allergy testing is required before
use. RADIESSE® is biodegradable and
will gradually break down and be absorbed by your body.
However, the results are longer lasting than those of the
non-permanent hyaluronic acid fillers, typically lasting for 12
months or longer in many patients.
Patients express a
high level of satisfaction with each of these products.
