What Is Liquid Rhinoplasty?

istock 1216169582 If you have been considering getting a “nose job” but are reluctant to have surgery, liquid rhinoplasty may be the answer for you. There are many benefits to this procedure over traditional surgical rhinoplasty.

What is liquid rhinoplasty?

In a liquid rhinoplasty procedure, a filler ingredient, such as hyaluronic acid, is injected underneath the skin of the nose. It can be used to change the shape of the nose or smooth out bumps. It isn’t used for dramatic changes but instead for minor “tweaks” to the nose.

How is this better than surgery?

For one thing, liquid rhinoplasty costs far less than surgery, and it also takes far less time. It is minimally invasive, and in most cases you can be back to work or your normal activities the same day, unlike with surgery, which has a much longer downtime.

What is the procedure for liquid rhinoplasty?

The procedure will only take 15 to 45 minutes. The doctor may apply a topical anesthetic to the nose and surrounding area so you don’t feel any pain from the needle. Then, the doctor will inject the filler into the bridge, tip, and sides of the nose. The filler will settle into the nose tissue and hold its shape.

After the procedure, you may notice bruising, swelling, and redness. You should see results within a week or two.

How can liquid rhinoplasty change the look of my nose?

Liquid rhinoplasty can add volume to the nose, lift the tip of the nose or make it more prominent, and help to make bumps smoother. It can’t help if you want a smaller nose or if you have large bumps. Depending on the filler used, the results can last for 6 months up to 3 years.

Liquid rhinoplasty is a great option if you would like to change the shape of your nose without the downtime and hassle of surgery. For many it is a better option than surgery, but a trained plastic surgeon should do the procedure.
