Recently there has been some advertisements on the satellite channels and on the Internet saying that the do nose jobs in five minutes. Doctor, what is your opinion about these?
I heard the five-min nosejob too. Not every nose can be operated with such methods. Five minute nose job refers to procedures during which some nasal deformities are fixed by injecting fillers. For example the depression between nose and forehead can be filled by injection. Not necessarily in 5 minute, but in a very short time comparing to a surgery.
By injecting fillers, we can improve the tip of the nose to some extent. It should be noted that these operations cannot be called surgery. Cosmetic operations are a better name for them. These jelly materials have temporary effect and will vanish after 6 months and the injection job has to be done again. Gels with more durability are also available but they have more side effects so we do not use them. Gels with no side effects usually have temporary effect. Hyaluronic acid is used to improve the minor problems of nose for 6 months. People with major nasal deformities like big size, big bump and severe drooping of the nose cannot reach any significant improvement by injection of fillers.
