If you’re curious about how a liquid rhinoplasty works, Prive Plastics explains the nonsurgical alternative in this blog.
What Is A Liquid Rhinoplasty?
Liquid rhinoplasty, also known as a non-surgical nose job, is a cosmetic procedure that uses injectable dermal fillers to change the shape of the nose. Dermal fillers give volume and structure, allowing for the reshaping of the nose without surgery. These fillers are safe, long-lasting, and can be taken out if needed.
Choosing a liquid rhinoplasty offers many benefits, including: no incisions, scarring, or anesthesia; a minimally invasive procedure with minimal discomfort; a shorter recovery time than a traditional rhinoplasty; subtle results that can greatly improve your appearance; and the ability to even out uneven contours and give your nose more definition. Plus, it is quick and convenient, so you don’t have to worry about taking time off from work or other commitments.
How A Liquid Rhinoplasty Works
The liquid rhinoplasty procedure typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. The doctor will begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the area to numb it, followed by the use of a very thin needle to inject the filler into the appropriate parts of the nose to enhance its shape and symmetry. The doctor will monitor the procedure closely to ensure the desired results are achieved.
The effects of liquid rhinoplasty are usually seen right away and can last for up to one year or more, depending on the kind of filler that is used. Individuals may expect a better nose shape, a smoother profile, and a more defined tip. This treatment can also help even out asymmetry and bring balance to the face.
Although liquid rhinoplasty is considered a medical procedure, it is possible to experience some side effects like bruising, swelling, infection, or an allergic reaction to the filler. To minimize the risk of any of these, it is important to select a practitioner who is experienced and qualified in this procedure.
Your Liquid Rhinoplasty Options With Prive Plastics
- Juvederm is a widely used line of dermal fillers made of a smooth gel containing Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the body such as in the soft connective tissues of the joints, cartilage, and eyes. HA injections into joints can be used to reduce pain and provide cushioning for those with arthritis. It can also be injected into the face to increase volume, fill in wrinkles, and provide results that last up to a year. In addition, HA can help increase skin hydration and elastin production, promoting healthier skin. Juvederm can be used to create a variety of effects in the nose area, such as reducing nasolabial folds, facial wrinkles, marionette lines, and filling in hollow areas in the cheeks.
- Restylane and Juvederm are both made of Hyaluronic Acid, but Restylane has a different texture, being more granular and coarse than Juvederm. It’s great for gradually adding volume and is very effective in fixing wrinkles and lines on the face. It can also be used to even out lumps or bumps on the nose due to aging and loss of volume, helping to restore the youthful appearance of the area around the nose.
Am I A Good Candidate For A Liquid Rhinoplasty?
As liquid rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive treatment, most individuals who don’t have an active facial skin infection or have not had recent nasal surgery can be candidates. Your provider should give you instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, which may vary depending on the type of filler being used. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have about the procedure, preparation, and what to expect for the post-treatment process.
