The reshaping of nasal defects remains a widely used surgical technique, with very good results. But many patients are hesitant to undergo surgery for a variety of reasons: fear of the procedure or of the final result, because their defects are too minor to justify surgery, and fear of the permanency of surgical intervention. This new very simple and absolutely safe technique is applicable to all these patients. Despite the technique’s necessity of being repeated over the years, this particular “drawback” is well accepted by patients and actually follows the current trend of a medical approach to aesthetic problems.
The combined use of Botox and dermal fillers can lead to good results without major side effects. It can be administered immediately, without any preparation, as is the norm when working with these substances. Results are visible in a few minutes, and patients can return immediately to their daily lives. On average, the result can be satisfactory if performed once a year, but a full followup will give more concrete results.
During the first months regular visits are necessary to check on the implants and adjust the bridge if necessary. In some cases, if the regular bridge provides insuficeint aesthetics or function a second bridge in metal/acrylic or in porcelain can be made.
