A nonsurgical nose job (also called a liquid rhinoplasty) is a nonsurgical alternative to rhinoplasty surgery that is performed in the office using injections.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes and can be done in the office with topical anesthesia. The results are visible immediately after the procedure, and there is essentially no downtime. This can be a fantastic procedure with many advantages, and a few disadvantages to rhinoplasty surgery. There is minimal downtime and reduced cost with this option, however, the results are not permanent and last about a year. Surgery may be prohibited for a period of time following a non-surgical nose job. Non-surgical nose job does not help with nasal breathing or nasal injuries.
How does a Liquid Rhinoplasty compare to a surgical rhinoplasty?
A liquid rhinoplasty is not as effective as a surgical rhinoplasty, though it is an excellent temporary option to improve the nasal appearance without the associated cost, anesthesia, and downtime of nasal surgery. It does not improve your breathing or change your bony or cartilaginous anatomy, nor does it remove a dorsal hump or bump.
What are the options for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
A non-surgical rhinoplasty can build up the bridge and radix of your nose. Dr. Saigal will inject a small amount of precisely-placed soft tissue filler such as Restylane or Juvederm to fill in this area and give you a beautiful new look in no time.
What can a non-surgical nose job do?
- Help fill in concave areas in the nose—in a deviated nose, a liquid rhinoplasty can help camouflage irregularities of cartilage and bones in the nose
- To achieve success with this technique, it is important to seek an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon for this option
- Improve your profile by hiding a dorsal hump—a large dorsal hump can effectively be blended in with the rest of the nose making it much less noticeable
- Improve the results of a previous rhinoplasty—surgical rhinoplasty can sometimes lead to very tiny lumps or bumps, or slight asymmetries between the two halves of the nose as the nasal bones heal
- Filler, when injected by an expert, can carefully camouflage these areas without requiring further surgery
