Rhinomodelation: Hyaluronic acid filler in the nose
English subtitled video
Rhinomodelation consists of improving small depressions or nasal defects by injecting hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite to leave the dorsum straighter. It is an intervention that we perform in the same office of Clínica Sanza, in Barcelona.
Rhinomodelation is used by many patients who do not need to go into the operating room, they just want to correct small defects that give them a complex but are not a big deal. What it does is to equalize or augment certain areas of the nose to give it more harmony with the rest of the face.
It is part of what we call aesthetic medicine, that is to say, it does not involve surgery . They are infiltrations that are done in the office, without having to go to the hospital at all, because it is a very simple and economical change. It is important to note that it has limitations in terms of what can be done, it is not suitable for major changes.
At Clínica Sanza we use the best hyaluronic acid we know, the one that lasts longer, the one that gives the best results.
Beware of saving money at a low-cost center, the result will not last.
How long do the results of injecting hyaluronic acid into the nose last?
The duration of hyaluronic acid once injected into the nose can vary depending on several factors. In general, the duration of the results can range from 12 to 18 months or even longer if the product is of high quality.
Hyaluronic acid is a resorbable material, which means that over time it is broken down and metabolized naturally in the body. The rate of resorption can be affected by the concentration and cross-linking of the hyaluronic acid used, as well as the individual’s location and metabolism.
In areas that are not as exposed to movement, such as the nose, the results may last longer than in areas with movement, such as the lips.
It is important to keep in mind that the duration of results can also be affected by post-treatment care and individual lifestyle habits.
How is hyaluronic acid injected?
Hyaluronic acid is carefully injected into the skin layers using a fine needle or cannula. Sometimes several punctures are necessary to distribute the product well and obtain an optimal result.
Don’t just go anywhere. It is essential to keep in mind that learning how to inject hyaluronic acid safely and effectively requires proper training and in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy, injection techniques and the appropriate choice of hyaluronic acid for each patient. Performing these injections without proper training and experience can have risks, such as injury, swelling, bruising or allergic reactions in the patient.
If you do not like the result, it is reversible
One of the fears of people who come to cosmetic medicine offices asking for a nose filler is that they will not like the result. If you are afraid that your nose has too much volume or if you don’t like the shape, it can be left as it was. Lhe most important thing with this treatment is that the result is natural and matches your face.
HYALURONIDASE ! this magic word is your peace of mind.
It is an enzyme that has the ability to degrade hyaluronic acid. In the field of aesthetic medicine, hyaluronidase is used to dissolve hyaluronic acid in cases of complications, if you do not like the result or for adverse reactions caused by hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
Can I socialize or work the next day?
Yes, you do not need to rest unless you have a profession with risk of hitting the area. What we advise is to avoid going to the gym for the first two days.
You may have small bruises that go away in 24 to 48 hours and minimal swelling.
Care after rhinomodelation
After undergoing rhinomodelation, we advise you to follow the following guidelines:
- Follow medical prescriptions.
- Do not sleep on your stomach.
- Do not wear glasses.
- Do not engage in activities that may damage the nose: sports, driving, etc.
- Inform the specialist if you suffer pain or discomfort.
People who wish to improve the appearance of their nose by making it a little bigger.
Patients who have undergone a previous rhinoplasty, and have had some complication or sequelae that can be improved without the need for reoperation.
This surgery is widely practiced in small noses with oriental or negroid features that want a more prominent or straight nose but also in noses with small humps, which instead of scraping or filing them, are better left by injecting calcium hydroxyapatite or hyaluronic acid in the nasal root and between the dorsum and nasal tip to leave them straighter.

Differences between filling with Calcium Hydroxyapatite and Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite are two substances used in aesthetic treatments to increase cheekbone volume. The differences between the two are explained below:
1. Composition and mode of action:
Hyaluronic acid: It is a molecule naturally present in our skin and is used to moisturize and restore volume in the treated area. It provides natural and temporary results, as it is gradually absorbed by the body. It is applied to the superficial layers of the skin.
Calcium hydroxyapatite: It is a collagen biostimulator, which means that it promotes the production of collagen by skin cells. In addition to providing volume, it also has a tightening effect and contributes to the firmness of the most superficial layers of the skin. The results can be long lasting due to the formation of new collagen. It is used in deeper layers of the skin.
2. Treatment areas:
Hyaluronic acid: Used to augment the lips, improve the appearance of scars, rejuvenate the female intimate area, correct imperfections on the back of the nose and treat fine wrinkles. It can also be used to increase volume in the cheekbones.
Calcium hydroxyapatite: Used to restore volume to facial structures, redensify the skin and provide firmness to the most superficial layers of the skin. It can be used in areas such as the cheekbones, but is not recommended for reducing wrinkles between the eyebrows and forehead.
3. Side effects:
Hyaluronic acid: It is a biocompatible and well-tolerated substance, so side effects are usually minimal and temporary, such as redness or swelling that disappear in a few days. As a substance found naturally in the body, it does not usually have significant contraindications.
Calcium hydroxyapatite: Calcium hydroxyapatite is also well tolerated, but caution should be exercised when injecting it in certain areas, such as the eye area, to avoid complications. As with hyaluronic acid, redness, swelling or bruising may occur at the application site, but these are usually temporary and mild..
