The nose is a focal point on our face and so affects how we look overall. The shape and contour of it can impair the confidence of many people. Until recently, the only option was surgery. Non-surgical nose reshaping and correction is now possible with dermal fillers. This is a quick and effective procedure that Dr Rekha has performed numerous times at her clinic in Elstead, Godalming in Surrey.
What defects can be treated?
This non-surgical treatment can correct a wide variety of defects such as –
- Crooked shape

What are the advantages of the nose reshaping treatment?
- Results are visible immediately

The doctor applies a topical anaesthetic cream 20 minutes before treatment.
Prior to treatment, we clean the area. Then, Dr Tailor injects small amounts of dermal filler precisely under the skin. Then she will massage the filler and the re-shapes the nose. You will be able to view and will be in complete control of the results.
After treatment, it is best to avoid touching the area and avoid the use of makeup for at least 12 hours in order to avoid the risk of infection.
Results are immediate and long lasting and last for up to 12 months.
You can request adjustments at any time during the treatment to retain a natural look (you will have a mirror in your hand).
What is the recovery time?
After the procedure, there is little or no down time. You will be able to go back to work or return to your normal activities immediately. There is very little swelling. You will need to avoid wearing heavy glasses for up to 2 weeks after treatment.
What type of fillers?
Hyaluronic acid fillers (such as Juvederm) and calcium based fillers (such as Radiesse) are commonly used to treat the nose. These fillers are FDA approved and are safe and effective.
