Hong Kong people are known to have flatter nose bridges compared to Westerners, whose noses are often straight and fuller. As the nose is considered the center of the face, a straight nasal bridge is generally seen as more attractive.
For those who are dissatisfied with their nose shape, there are two main options: surgery or minimally invasive procedures such as injectable fillers. Surgical options involve implanting artificial materials or using cartilage to reshape the nose, with results that are more permanent. However, more people are opting for injectable fillers due to their convenience, speed, and natural-looking results. The two most popular types of fillers are hyaluronic acid and microcrystalline hydroxyapatite, each with varying levels of longevity and firmness. As I have discussed in my previous article on fillers, it is best to consult a professional to determine the most suitable material for individual needs.
The benefits of using hyaluronic acid and microcrystalline hydroxyapatite fillers are that the effects are natural-looking, and they gradually dissolve over time without permanently altering the facial structure. Some clients receive injections every one to two years to maintain their desired appearance. Injectables are also less invasive and more convenient, with some clients receiving treatment during their lunch break without leaving any noticeable wounds or scars. Additionally, clients can observe the entire treatment process and provide immediate feedback to the doctor, making it easier to adjust and correct any issues as they arise.
There are many fillers available in the market, and it is essential to choose a reputable doctor and product. The price of nasal augmentation varies greatly among different clinics and beauty centers, with different prices possibly due to differences in the brands of fillers used. Selecting a reliable doctor and product is crucial as facial features are significant and long-lasting.
