Multiplane hyaluronic acid (EME) in female Chinese rhinoplasty using blunt and sharp needle technique

Date:Jan 09, 2018

Background


Hyaluronic acid has been widely used for nonsurgical rhinoplasty. Little literature focuses on Chinese women of the Han nationality, who have a characteristic flattened facial contour. Projection of the nose, including the nasal dorsum, nasal tip, and columella, plays an important role in achieving an attractive face.


Aim


The aim of this study was to investigate the application of multiplane hyaluronic acid in rhinoplasty using blunt and sharp needle technique.


Method


From June 2011 to February 2014, 280 cases of nonsurgical rhinoplasty by hyaluronic acid were applied; 1–9 months follow-up showed satisfactory appearance.


Result


Postoperative results showed no complications, such as infection or flap necrosis.


Conclusion


For esthetic and safety considerations, we suggest multiple plane injections using blunt combined with sharp needle-filling techniques.
