Liquid rhinoplasty, or the “nonsurgical nose job,” uses a dermal filler like Juvederm®, Restylane®, or Bellafill® to correct a variety of problems patients may find with their nose. Injections are often used to disguise a slight hump on the bridge of the nose, increase the height of the bridge, or reshape the tip. Being that rhinoplasty surgery is both a popular and expensive treatment—frequently costing thousands of dollars—this noninvasive procedure offers a quick and relatively painless solution. Results are immediate and there is zero downtime needed for recovery.
What Are the Benefits over Surgery?
The typical rhinoplasty surgery leaves patients bruised and disabled for a few days. Liquid rhinoplasty offers similar results without the need to recover, all for a fraction of the cost. Additionally, using dermal fillers to treat problem areas on the nose is completely reversible! If the desired effect ultimately isn’t what the patient wants, nothing else needs to be done. The filler will be absorbed by the body over time. This treatment, however, cannot reduce the size or appearance of the nose, but only help reshape it.
Are There Side Effects?
Side effects are minimal and may include swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are rare and typically mild in severity, lasting a few days at most.
Is a Liquid Rhinoplasty is Right for Me?
Because only you know what look is the right look for you, it’s important to discuss treatment and expectations with your healthcare provider. During a consultation, he will determine whether liquid rhinoplasty is right for you, plus which and how much product is appropriate to enhance your look.
