Book a Consultation

If you are interested in having a rhinoplasty, or nose job, but aren’t excited about having surgery, a non-surgical rhinoplasty might be a good option for you. This procedure is also called a liquid rhinoplasty and is considered an efficient and safe procedure. A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a great option if you are looking to experiment with modifications to the appearance of your nose or tweak your appearance slightly.

What to Expect from a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Although less dramatic than a traditional surgical rhinoplasty, a non-surgical rhinoplasty can provide great effects if you are looking to modify the appearance of your nose. Because the nose is the center of your face, small effects can go a long way. Non-Surgical rhinoplasty works through the use of nose fillers, which are usually made up of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found in the body naturally.

During the procedure, your doctor will inject this filler under the skin in the areas that you wish to tweak. The filler settles into the injection site and can hold the shape up to three years. Before the procedure, be sure to let your doctor know about any medications that you are taking and your medical history during your consultation. Here’s how the procedure goes:

1. A topical anesthetic will be applied to your face to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

2. Your doctor will inject the nose filler into the area around your nose or into the bridge of your nose. You might feel a slight pressure during this, but you should not feel any pain.

3. Fillers can be injected around any part of your nose to modify its shape including the bridge, tip, and sides of your nose.

The entire procedure should take less than an hour, and results should be fully visible within two weeks. How long the fillers last depend on the ingredients in the filler, but liquid rhinoplasty is not permanent. Bear in mind, though, that as your body breaks down the filler, your nose will simply return to its original shape and size, and it will not appear misshapen or deformed.

The Benefits of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a great option for those who are looking to smooth out bumps in the nose, emphasize or lift the tip of the nose, or add volume to the nose. Because it is a non-surgical procedure, there are very few side effects. The most common side effect is sensitivity at the injection site and slight bruising or swelling.

There are several benefits to non-surgical rhinoplasty including:

·  Quick recovery time

·  The procedure does not involve the patient going under general anesthesia

·  Lower cost than traditional surgical rhinoplasty

·  Results are not permanent so patients can experiment with modification
