“The procedure is two part,” explains Dr Mooney. “Part one is the formal navigation of medical history and ensuring the patient is fully aware of the procedure and the results. Then, we take photographs into account so we can pinpoint the finite area of treatment,” he explains.
Patients then undergo a trial of saline injection, continues Dr Mooney. “This is a brilliant ‘try-before-you-buy’ option where patients can see, feel and experience what the formal injection will be like.”
“The saline injection is relatively painless,” he continues, “and the effect lasts about ten minutes – just long enough for the patient to get the best idea of what can be done.”
“The next part of the Injectable Rhinoplasty process is the actual injection,” he says, adding that this takes about half an hour and is performed under local anaesthetic. “It really is a simple and safe procedure with great results,” he assures of the flawless success rate of the procedure within his Bankstown and Bondi Junction Facial Plastic Surgery Practice. Pain is minimal, with an ice pack usually the most popular salve option post-injection! “After care may include a little swelling and rarely, minor bruising for 24 hours,” he adds, assuring that antibiotics are prescribed for a couple of days following, and a patient review undertaken within two weeks of the procedure.
Injectable rhinoplasty is an exciting, safe and effective treatment that when used with appropriate patients it can provide instant non-surgical results.
