Liquid Rhinoplasty

Liquid rhinoplasty, also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty or a non-surgical nose job, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of injectable fillers to reshape and enhance the appearance of the nose. Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, which involves surgical intervention, liquid rhinoplasty offers a non-surgical alternative for those seeking minor adjustments to the shape, symmetry, or contours of their nose. The procedure utilizes dermal fillers, typically made of hyaluronic acid, to add volume, correct asymmetry, smooth out bumps or depressions, and improve overall nasal aesthetics.

During the procedure, a skilled practitioner carefully injects the dermal fillers into specific areas of the nose, targeting areas that require correction or enhancement. The fillers are strategically placed to achieve the desired result, whether it’s to straighten a crooked nose, lift a droopy tip, or create more balance and symmetry. Liquid rhinoplasty can also be used to address minor imperfections following a previous surgical rhinoplasty, providing refinements and touch-ups without the need for additional surgery. The results of liquid rhinoplasty are immediate and can last several months to over a year, depending on the specific fillers used and individual factors.

Metropolis excels in providing liquid rhinoplasty due to our expertise and patient-centered approach. Firstly, our specialists have extensive knowledge and experience in facial aesthetics and a deep understanding of nasal anatomy. They carefully assess each patient’s unique nasal characteristics, concerns, and goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. Our specialists have an artistic eye for detail and strive to achieve natural-looking results that harmonize with the patient’s facial features.

Understanding Moles

If you are unclear on the mole definition, find out more about it here. A mole, also known as nevus, is a cluster of pigmented cells that appear as dark spots on the skin. They develop due to the accumulation of melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells. 

While most skin moles are harmless, understanding their formation is essential. Explore topics such as the definition of moles, their development, and their connection to melanin production.

 

Types of Moles

Delve into the various types of moles here: 

  • Congenital moles - Present at birth, larger in size, potential for increased melanoma risk.
  • Dysplastic nevi - Irregular shapes, varying colors, higher melanoma risk.
  • Common moles - Everyday pigmented spots, usually harmless. Vary in color and size, often round or oval.

 

Signs of Atypical Moles

Identifying atypical or suspicious moles involves paying attention to specific characteristics. Watch for asymmetry, irregular borders, variations in color, and any changes in diameter or evolution in appearance. 

If a mole exhibits these irregularities during self-examination, it's crucial to seek professional evaluation promptly. Monitoring mole irregularities helps in the early detection of potential skin issues, ensuring timely intervention and peace of mind.

 

ABCDEs of Melanoma Detection

Learn the rules of ABCDE for melanoma skin cancer detection, such as the following: 

  • Assess moles for Asymmetry, ensuring both halves match 
  • Inspect irregular Borders
  • Note Color variations
  • Monitor Diameter, with a threshold of 6mm
  • Be vigilant for any Evolving changes in size, shape, or color. 

Understanding and applying these criteria during mole examination enhances early skin cancer detection and intervention.

 

Mole Self-Examination Guide

Conduct a thorough self mole examination with these steps. Use a mirror to check moles on all body parts in a well-lit area. Look for asymmetry, irregular borders, color changes, and any variations in size. Enlist a partner for hard-to-reach areas. Perform this skin check at home monthly to detect any abnormalities early, ensuring proactive skin health.

 

When to See a Dermatologist

Book a dermatologist mole check if you notice sudden changes, itching, bleeding, or any concerns about the ABCDE criteria. Timely dermatologist consultations ensure accurate assessments and proactive interventions, promoting peace of mind regarding your skin health. Don't hesitate; prioritize your well-being with professional mole consultation.
