Back in the summer of 2016, I decided to get nose fillers as a way to test out a future nose job. I’m sad to say that the results lasted for a very short time. Even 11 months later, I still have residual fillers left in my nose along with some threading. In order for my surgeon to accurately operate on my nose, all of my fillers had to be removed. So on July 22nd, I went to MVP to remove all of my fillers. The procedure was rather quick overall. When I arrived, I signed in & waited around for a consultant to come by. She applied some numbing cream to my nose bridge as well on the alar. Then I waited around for another 20 minutes or so for the numbing cream to kick in.
Soon after, my consultant, Mindy, along with another consultant, Elizabeth, came by to take me to one of the treatment rooms on the second floor. I laid down on the bed and the nurse immediately put an ice pack over my face to further induce numbing.
Dr. Seo, my rhinoplasty surgeon, came in & started pinching my nose. It was rather quick, like my nose filler procedure last year. He injected my nose with filler dissolvers (hyaluronidase) He started with an injection on my bridge and ended on the side of my nose. With my bridge, it was just a pinching feeling… but with the side of nose, it HURT! I guess that’s expected because it hurt like no other when I got botox on the side of my nose last year.
After about three injections, the nurse took over and pressed my nose with some gauze to stop the bleeding. It was also really sweet that Elizabeth and Mindy were there with me the entire time. That’s how I know this is a professional place… they didn’t leave me hanging. When I got a nose filler touch-up last year, the other clinic straight up just let me walk out while I was still bleeding. Like, they didn’t even bother to give me a band-aid haha. I like that MVP took their time and made sure that I was okay before releasing me into the wild.
