3D Noble surgery is also known as midface augmentation or paranasal augmentation.
This surgery uses an implant to make up for deep nasolabial folds (laugh lines) and two-dimensional faces. Deep laugh lines and sunken paranasal areas can give an aging and stubborn look. Furthermore, by heightening the paranasal area, the appearance of a protruding mouth can improve. This surgery creates a three-dimensional face, giving a graceful and youthful look.

Customization of CDU's 3D Noble Surgery
|3D Noble Surgery||Micro Fat Graft||Filler|
|Recommended when a patient doesn’t want repeated surgery or treatment||Recommended when a patient is not comfortable with implant surgery||Recommended when a patient doesn’t want surgery|
|Insertion of a customized implant||Autogenous fat graft on the areas of concern||Dermal filler on the areas of concern|
|Permanent result||The result differs according to one’s fat survival rate: once fat survives, the result lasts forever||The result lasts about six months to one year (this can vary depending on the product)|
A customized implant (SOFTXiL) is produced.
An incision is made inside the nose to secure the implant pocket.
After implant insertion, the position of the implant is fixed and the wound is closed.
Advantages of CDU's 3D Noble Surgery
1. Customized implant
By producing a personalized implant and surgery, we create the best volume and position of the implant.
2. Minimized complications
By making an incision inside the nose, no scar will be visible.
3. 3-in-1: Anti-aging + face contouring + smile correction
From the frontal view, deep laugh lines can be improved by inserting an implant, and the smile will become more favorable (gummy smile correction).
Without cutting bone, the profile will be more ideal, making the protruding mouth recede.
4. Safe fixation without a screw or plate
The implant is inserted under the periosteum. The implant is naturally fixed by scar tissue capsulizing the implant. This is a common technique used for nose implants. Without using a screw or plate, patients don’t have to worry about the implant moving or foreign body sensations in any facial expression.
Q&A About Revision Rhinoplasty
Yes, you can. Some patients consider 3D Noble surgery after rhinoplasty when the nose doesn’t seem defined or high enough. This occurs when the upper jaw is relatively weaker and more sunken than other areas. In this case, the nose becomes high enough by heightening the nasolabial area.
Yes, it does. It is normal for the nose to become flared and upturned after 3D Noble surgery. This is due to swelling in the surgical area, so within two weeks the condition goes back to normal as swelling subsides.
The implant can’t move because the implant is securely fixed under the periosteum without a surgical screw or plate. This is a common technique used for nose implants. Even in just two weeks after surgery, the position of the implant will be well-fixed.
These are complications when the implant is inserted through an incision inside the mouth.
At CDU Plastic Surgery Korea, the implant is inserted through the incision inside the nose, so it is not likely to happen.
When the implant is thicker than it is supposed to be, this can happen. So, Noble surgery should be done by a surgeon who can choose the right design and size. CDU uses a customized implant to prevent this condition.
