How DOes Liquid Rhinoplasty Work?
If you want to improve the shape or contours of your nose, what are your options? Just a few years ago, your only answer was to undergo a surgical nose job.
The problem with that is that surgery is inherently risky. Plus, you can expect an extended recovery period, and the results are permanent whether you’re pleased with them or not.
The great news is that you now have a non-surgical alternative. Known as a liquid rhinoplasty, this procedure is quick, safe and can transform your nose.
If you’re interested in liquid rhinoplasty, call Seduction Med Spa today for a consultation. Our skilled, highly experienced doctors can review your goals and suggest a liquid filler that can give your nose a straighter, more streamlined look.
What Is a Liquid Rhinoplasty?
You know how liquid fillers are all the rage for getting fuller lips and plumper cheeks? It turns out that those same hyaluronic acid-based fillers also can be used to transform the shape of your nose.
Sometimes called a non-surgical nose job or a liquid nose job, doctors perform these procedures on patients who want to bring balance to their noses or who are looking to even out some inconsistencies.
Liquid rhinoplasty can correct issues such as:
• A crooked nose
• A nasal tip that droops
• A pinched nasal tip
• Scars on the nose
• An asymmetrical nose
• A low nasal bridge
• A nasal bridge bump
How Does Liquid Rhinoplasty Work?
This procedure is ideal for patients who have a bump on the bridge of the nose. The doctor uses injectables to fill in the area around the bump, thus creating the illusion of a nose that’s straight as a line. While the introduction of the injectable adds to the volume of the nose, the final result actually makes the nose look smaller.
A non-surgical nose job can fix a drooping tip because the filler will cause the tip to lift. Alternatively, a slightly crooked nose can have any sharp angles corrected with the addition of fillers.
Is There Anything a Liquid Nose Job Can't Do?
A non-surgical nose job cannot help you if your nose is too big and you wish it were smaller. Similarly, an extreme bump or a broken nose cannot be corrected with this procedure. A thick nose cannot be thinned with an injection, but any of these problems may be addressed with traditional, surgical rhinoplasty procedures.
However, if your nose appears wider because of scar tissue, then a liquid nose job may be able to help. Your doctor may recommend an injection of steroids to shrink the scar tissue, so ask your caregiver if this is a possibility for you.
Only Trust a Doctor to Provide a Liquid Rhinoplasty
Your nose is a delicate instrument that contains many essential arteries. This means that it is critical that you only allow a board-certified physician to perform a liquid nose job. These qualified professionals know precisely how to introduce the injectables thanks to their familiarity with the facial anatomy.
During your consultation, your doctor will review all of the potential risks that are associated with a liquid nose job so that you can make an informed decision.
Will a Liquid Nose Job Hurt?
The vast majority of patients report that they experience little discomfort during the liquid rhinoplasty procedure. In most cases, the entire treatment requires about one-half hour, and most people can immediately resume their everyday activities.
A topical cream is used to numb the injection site, and your doctor will probably advise you to ice your nose intermittently to control pain and swelling.
What Is Recovery From a Liquid Rhinoplasty Like?
Redness and bruising are common side effects, but these typically are fairly mild and can be alleviated with an over-the-counter pain reliever and the application of ice. These side effects may last anywhere from a day up to a week after the procedure.
Your doctor may recommend that you do not wear makeup or apply topical products to the treated area for a few days. Avoid touching the treated area, and refrain from exercise as well. Your doctor may advise you against undergoing additional skin treatments or wearing glasses for as much as two weeks after receiving the treatment.
When Will I See the Results of a Liquid Nose Job?
The change will be immediately apparent when you have a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure. You may experience some mild swelling in the day or two following the injections, but these should subside fairly quickly.
How Long Does a Liquid Rhinoplasty Last?
This depends upon the patient and the specific filler product that is used. Your doctor will discuss all of the available filler options with you and make a recommendation. Usually, these injectable fillers last anywhere from six months up to two years.
The Advantages of a Non-Surgical Nose Job
Not so many years ago, you had no choice but to go under the knife if you wanted to change the appearance of your nose. While surgery still may be necessary to correct some more serious issues, it is now possible to choose a non-surgical alternative that may have several advantages.
Perhaps the most obvious advantage is not having to undergo surgery. This means no long recovery time, no anesthetic and fewer risks. Also, because a liquid rhinoplasty is temporary, if you don’t like the results, you can rest assured that they will not last forever.
You return to your normal activities almost immediately after this procedure, and it takes less than an hour to complete. Liquid rhinoplasty also is a good deal less expensive than a surgical procedure.
