Liquid rhinoplasty, also known as a non-surgical nose job or non-surgical rhinoplasty, is carefully placing dermal fillers within the nose to enhance its size, shape, and structure while restoring facial harmony. Liquid rhinoplasty may safely and efficiently remodel the nose without the danger or prolonged recovery time of surgery thanks to hyaluronic acid (HA)-based fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane. Concerns about the size and form of the nose, such as:
- A dorsal hump (small bump);
- A drooping nasal tip;
- Asymmetry, can be temporarily addressed by liquid rhinoplasty.
Treatments for liquid nose jobs can occasionally be uncomfortable. To assist numb the region and lessen any pain, we will apply a numbing lotion or anesthetic before your procedure. Before the injection, a topical numbing agent is administered to the skin. Additionally, the filler contains a numbing agent (lidocaine) that causes the nose to become numb as the injection is being given. For approximately an hour, you feel numb. There won’t be any pain until the numbing medicine wears off.
What Product Is Used for A Liquid Rhinoplasty?
A liquid rhinoplasty can be performed with any injectable product, including Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, and Restylane. Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm, which are hyaluronic acid fillers, are the most popular injectable formulations for a liquid rhinoplasty because they do not interfere with or exclude a subsequent rhinoplasty and can be eliminated within 24 hours by the insertion of another medicine if desired.
With the use of a small needle and HA-based dermal fillers, our skilled injectors will perform a liquid rhinoplasty on your nose. Once your desired shape is attained, your injector will delicately massage the filler into the targeted nasal regions.
What are the benefits of liquid rhinoplasty and traditional rhinoplasty?
- In comparison to the one to four hours needed for a traditional rhinoplasty, liquid rhinoplasty only requires around 15 minutes. There is minimal to no recovery time after a liquid rhinoplasty.
- There is little to no recuperation time, and the benefits are immediate. It has fast benefits and is quite effective in treating mild depression.
- Rarely do individuals have bruises, and most may return to work right away.
- It is quite safe when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon and is easily reversible thanks to a solution that dissolves the dermal fillers.
When will I see my results?
You could have some swelling or redness around the injection site after your procedure, but this should go away within an hour or two. Within a week or two, you should completely see the effects you want. Permanent or temporary liquid rhinoplasty requires no healing time. Without any indication that intervention took place, patients can resume their jobs. The permanent kind is done in stages separated by six weeks.
It is seen to be reasonable and judicious to choose that method, which gradually achieves the desired outcome utilizing micro-droplets. Three factors. When the injection quantities are minimal, nature will be less likely to recognize this artificial substance lying beneath the skin. The second reason is that as the procedure moves along, the patient has plenty of time to choose which regions want attention and how much during the six weeks in between injections. Again, one must pay attention to their preferences since the permanent kind of liquid filler is permanent and difficult to remove.
This brings up the third and most obvious reason: overfilling must be prevented. To save time, an anesthetic ointment can be applied to the skin 45 minutes before the appointment, either at home or while traveling to the clinic. Since only very little amounts of the permanent liquid—0.02-0.04 cc—are injected into a specific region, bruising and swelling are quite uncommon. It’s a very little volume. To accomplish the assignment in one session, temporary fillers are often placed.
What Are the Instructions After a Liquid Rhinoplasty?
For the first 24 hours, gently apply cold packs to your nose as tolerated. For the first 24 hours, keep the head of your bed raised by using more pillows to maintain your head just above heart level. For the first two weeks, avoid pressing against, massaging, or pressing on your nose. You are free to resume your regular activities after two weeks. You may still wear makeup and don’t have to be concerned about having your nose wet after treatment.
What Are the Downsides of a Liquid Rhinoplasty?
Contrary to surgery, a liquid rhinoplasty has a restricted range of effects and cannot reduce the size of the nose. The fact that the dermal fillers will ultimately be absorbed by the body makes the therapy only temporary, which is another drawback. You may require a touch-up procedure around a year after the previous injection, depending on how much filler was used in the various parts of the nose.
How long will my results last?
You could have some swelling or redness around the injection site after your procedure, but this should go away within an hour or two. Within a week or two, you should completely see the effects you want. The following variables affect how long the effects last:
- What type of injectable filler is utilized (please refer to the pages specific for each product)
- injection site for the nose
It also varies on the patient; some persons degrade things more quickly while others retain them for longer. How long a certain product could last in a particular individual cannot be predicted. There is no guarantee of longevity; nevertheless, general ranges for a particular product, for a particular place, are established during the consultation.
When performed by the best nose surgeon, liquid rhinoplasty can last indefinitely. There are a few nose surgeons with experience in permanent non-surgical nose job procedures, but the majority of doctors only perform temporary nose jobs. The kind of substance and the volume injected determine how long temporary fillers last. The lifespan of some varies. Typically, the range is between four months and a year.
A new kind of cosmetic nose surgery called non-surgical or liquid rhinoplasty is less intrusive and more affordable than traditional nose surgery. Additionally, compared to a traditional nose operation, this procedure has fewer risks and consequences. For those who desire to improve their look without undergoing significant surgery, a nonsurgical rhinoplasty is an option.
