“It bothered me when I looked in the mirror that my nose wasn’t straight.”
Construction site manager Alfie Lucas first investigated dermal fillers as a non-surgical solution to correct his broken nose. A fracture from a kickboxing injury, years prior, had left his nose slightly bent. And although it was a minor, the appearance of his nose had always troubled him since the accident.
“Basically, my nose has been broken previously and when I looked at it straight on, I could see that it was misaligned. What I wanted to achieve, using dermal fillers, is to make the appearance of my nose look a little bit straighter.
“When I was younger and fitter, I used to kickbox. I was sparring in the ring and took a kick to the nose. It fractured my nose. I kind of just let it be, but in later life it has always been a bit of a niggle. It bothered me when I looked in the mirror that my nose wasn’t straight.
“A friend of mine told me that you could use UTH dermal filler instead of corrective surgery on your nose, kind of like a non-permanent nose job. I hadn’t heard of it before, but I just thought that sounded brilliant. Basically, the dermal filler would be used to straighten out the side of my nose that appeared misaligned.
“I’ve never had any work done before previously but I decided to give it a go.”
“When I look in the mirror every day, I don’t see a bent nose anymore.”
“I wasn’t nervous, more apprehensive because I didn’t know what to expect, but I’ve been fine after the treatment.
“A few days after the injection there was a bit of minor swelling and a couple of red marks, but I was given the UTH aftercare cream and those red dots lasted about two days, they healed incredibly quickly. The swelling lasted about three days but there was no pain at all.
“People have been saying that I look better, they’ve kind of said there’s something different about your face but they’re not quite sure what I’ve had done. That’s quite nice because no-one could spot what it was. Then when I told them they were like, ‘oh yeah that’s what it is – your nose looks straighter!’
“When I look in the mirror every day, I don’t see a bent nose anymore. That’s a massive confidence booster.”
“I’d definitely do it again because the treatment has worked. It felt like a very minor procedure, but it is effective, and it’s made a huge difference. So yes, I would absolutely do it again.”
Alfie’s Treatment Plan
A total of 0.3ml UTH Deep was injected deeply to treat the previously fractured nose. The clinician advised that they were unable to fully correct the nose with filler, however, the result is a big improvement and Alfie was very pleased with the outcome.
