Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe, non-invasive way to correct imperfections on the nose without a surgical procedure. In the world of plastic surgery, nose jobs are a hugely popular type of cosmetic treatment. In recent years, we’re seeing the rise of non-invasive treatments such as non-surgical rhinoplasty. These are the types of treatments that require minimal recovery time but can make a huge difference in your appearance and confidence.
What is Liquid Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is also known as a non-surgical nose job. It means that you don’t have to go under the knife. Instead, the treatment uses a series of dermal fillers to correct imperfections.
The benefits of choosing non-surgical rhinoplasty over the standard surgical route are that it’s a non-permanent procedure with virtually no downtime. Although surgical nose jobs are a very popular treatment, it’s an excellent alternative for those who want a non-invasive treatment and don’t want to take time off work to recover.
The biggest appeal of liquid rhinoplasty is that it doesn’t have the same risks, downtime, recovery, and visit to the operating room that come with a standard nose job. Whether patients are looking to improve the appearance of the nose or add some volume, a non-surgical rhinoplasty continues to be a popular procedure.
Why Choose Liquid Rhinoplasty?
If your concerns are only with the appearance of your nose and not medical, then a liquid nose job may be a suitable option. A surgical nose job is a big procedure that takes time to heal and recover. A liquid rhinoplasty can still have a dramatic effect on the appearance of the nose without surgery. Here are some of the advantages of choosing a liquid nose job:
- Safer – as the procedure doesn’t require surgery or incisions, there is a much lower risk of complications in comparison to a surgical procedure.
- No general anaesthetic – going under general anaesthetic has its own risks, which you can avoid with liquid rhinoplasty.
- Minimal downtime and recovery – most patients return to normal activities soon after the procedure. With a nose job, you would need to wear a splint and bandages for several weeks.
- Immediate results – you can see the results of liquid rhinoplasty instantly.
- Cheaper – naturally, it’s more affordable than a surgical nose job.
- Convenient – with no hospital stay, you can head straight back to your normal daily routine after the procedure.
The downside of a liquid nose job is that it can’t change the actual size of your nose. If you’re looking to create a smaller nose, fix a medical issue, or permanently change your nose, then rhinoplasty may be a more suitable option. There are limits to liquid rhinoplasty, so it’s important that you have realistic expectations of what you can achieve. As you use injectables, you’re adding volume to the area.
How Does Liquid Rhinoplasty Work?
Before non-surgical rhinoplasty, you will have a one-on-one consultation to ask any questions and talk through the procedure. The treatment itself takes up to 30 minutes with instant results that last up to 12 months.
During the procedure, your practitioner will inject a series of dermal fillers. These are small injections made from hyaluronic acid. They are the same fillers that you would use for plumper lips, more defined cheeks, and preventing chin dimples. For non-surgical rhinoplasty, dermal fillers are applied to the soft tissue of the nose.
Dermal fillers can reshape the nose, but they can also treat several other issues. Many of our patients seek out non-surgical rhinoplasty to smooth out a bump in the nose or treat a ‘hooked nose’.
The practitioners at the Harley Clinic will work with you to achieve the best results. We only use the highest quality filler. You will go through a thorough consultation before we start any work to address your concerns and determine if you are the right candidate for this type of treatment. All our treatments are performed by highly qualified and expert doctors with fantastic expertise and knowledge.
There’s no denying that liquid rhinoplasty can create amazing results; it’s important to keep an open mind. During your cosmetic surgery consultation, you will talk about your desires, concerns, and medical history. Despite thinking that liquid rhinoplasty may be perfect for you, you may need a surgical approach or vice versa. That’s why it’s so important to speak to an expert plastic surgeon who can guide you on the best route possible for you.
Liquid Rhinoplasty Before and After
Who is the Right Candidate for a Non-Surgical Nose Job?
So, if you’re unhappy with the look of your nose or you find that it doesn’t balance your face, you have probably already thought about plastic surgery. The right candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty is someone who doesn’t like the shape of their nose rather than the size. This type of treatment can’t alter the actual size of your nose. What it can do is the following:
- Smooth out bumps
- Restructure nostrils shape
- Maintain a natural look
- Improve nose profile and face symmetry
The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and requires virtually no downtime. You can achieve long-term results without going under the knife or taking time off work to recover. If you want a new look, but don’t want to undergo invasive surgery, then non-surgical rhinoplasty could be the ideal solution. The results are long-lasting but temporary. In the same way that facial fillers or lip fillers are temporary, your liquid nose job could last 18 months.
Are There Any Side Effects of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
There are some minor side effects like bruising, swelling, and redness. Serious complications can occur, but they are rare. Because of the injection site, there is a small risk that the filler could be injected into the blood vessels. This could cause an injury, lead to scarring or, in rare cases, blindness.
