Liquid Rhinoplasty

Some patients may want to improve the appearance and shape of their nose, but might not be ready for the surgical rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Johnny Mao at Mao Facial Plastics offers liquid rhinoplasty for non-surgical rejuvenation of the nose. Liquid Rhinoplasty is a quick, in-office treatment that can improve nasal contour in minutes by using injectable fillers.

What injectables are used for a Liquid Rhinoplasty?

The most common injectables for a liquid rhinoplasty are Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal fillers. Dr. Mao most commonly uses Juvederm Voluma on the nose, but Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CH) fillers such as Radiesse may be used as well for improving the contour of the upper nasal bridge.

Who is a candidate for Liquid Rhinoplasty?

Since liquid rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive treatment, nearly anyone without active facial skin infection or recent prior nasal surgery is a candidate. It is important to have proper and realistic expectations about the liquid rhinoplasty. It can stimulate the result of a surgical rhinoplasty given the right type of nose, but is not a permanent result.

How does Dr. Johnny Mao perform a Liquid Rhinoplasty?

Dr. Mao utilizes a one cc syringe of filler and injects them into the areas of the nose to fill indentation. These areas are most commonly the upper nasal bridge to camouflage the hump, or the nasal tip, placed deep to project and rotate the tip. The total process takes less than 10 minutes. The patient can return to work the same day. Liquid rhinoplasty is considered a “lunch time” in office procedure.

How can a Liquid Rhinoplasty improve the appearance of the nose?

A liquid rhinoplasty can:

  • Camouflage the dorsal hump
  • Rotate and project the nasal tip
  • Fill secondary indentation from prior surgery
  • Achieve more symmetry in the bridge and tip

How long do results last?

The results of a liquid rhinoplasty can last from 9 to 18 months. With multiple injections, the results can last very long to over 2 years.

Is a liquid rhinoplasty safe?

Liquid rhinoplasty is a very safe procedure. A recent study out of the UK showed a review of over 5000 cases with very low <0.1% serious complication (skin compromise). There may be some mild swelling over the injection site that dissipates in 2-3 days.

Dr. Mao's skill speaks for itself. Checking through his gallery is all the evidence you need. This does not, however show the kindness, gentleness and enthusiasm of this most competent surgeon. I got exactly what I had hoped for; a more youthful look without any evidence of having "work." Dr. Mao was available from start. . . 

I wanted to thank everyone especially Dr. Johnny Mao for the wonderful treatment I received. I had a surgical procedure done to remove a basal cell cancer on my cheek area. Dr Mao and the entire staff were fantastic. The admission process, the surgery and the results, again, fantastic. I can't say enough about everyone. . .

My experience with Dr. Mao has been nothing but pleasant. My first appointment I meet with him and talked about my options and took pictures. He had done morphed photos to show me what my nose could potentially look like. He was very personable he made sure that I was comfortable during appointments and gave. . .
