Medical rhinoplasty

What you need to know

Medical rhinoplasty is an alternative technique to cosmetic surgery to correct the slightest anomalies of the nose with an injection of hyaluronic acid or botulinum toxin.
The indications for medical rhinoplasty:
• Correct minor irregularities such as hollows, bumps, asymmetry.
• Raise or project the tip of the nose.
• Create a nasal bridge when the nose is too hollow (often after surgery).
• Correction of nose wrinkles (bunny-lines)
Medical rhinoplasty is the ideal technique to treat the appearance of signs of aging that do not require intervention. It also makes it possible to make an initial assessment of the result before an operation or to touch up the nose after an operation to perfect the final result.
These injections are painless, surgery-free, and without general anesthesia.


Duration of hospital stay
20 to 30 minutes.
No anesthesia.
Average length of stay
1 day.
The patient can go home after the procedure.

Before the treatment

The patient will explain to the doctor his/her expectations. Then the doctor will start by disinfecting the skin.

What does it involve?

With a very fine needle or a micro-cannula, the doctor injects hyaluronic acid into the nose in depth, directly into contact with the bone or cartilage. He then proceeds to a remodelling with the fingers to put the product in place. The injections are carried out from one person to another and the patient validates at each step the improvement of his/her nose with the help of a mirror.
Medical rhinoplasty is totally painless because the filler contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that guarantees the patient maximum comfort during treatment.
Some areas such as the tip of the nose and the part of the nose between the two nostrils (the columella) being more sensitive, the doctor may also propose the application of an anaesthetic ointment.
Note that these corrections are not final and last on average 8 months to 18 months.
The procedure takes 20 to 30 minutes.

After the treatment

After medical rhinoplasty, there is redness and slight swelling for a few hours. Some bruises that can be easily masked with foundation can last for 8 to 10 days.
The doctor will advise you to avoid pressing the nose for 24 hours in order not to move the freshly injected product.
The nose may be sensitive after the treatment for a few days but this sensitivity quickly disappears.
Exposure to the sun, sauna or hammam should be avoided for two weeks. It is advisable to wait one to two days before resuming sport.
