What is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty uses dermal fillers to shape and contour the nose. You may also hear the procedure called a liquid nose job. It’s a popular choice for individuals seeking to refine the appearance of their noses without undergoing the more traditional option of surgery. Let’s talk about what a non-surgical rhinoplasty is and if you can benefit from this alternative to a surgical nose job.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty vs. Surgical Rhinoplasty

While non-surgical rhinoplasty uses fillers to create changes in the shape of the nose, surgical rhinoplasty requires that a skilled surgeon create precise incisions that allow them to reshape the nose.

While surgical rhinoplasty gives a surgeon more precise access to your nose, the non-surgical option is an accurate way to get very similar results without the risks associated with all surgeries.

Since it uses dermal fillers to reshape and contour the nose, the results are temporary, typically lasting 6-18 months. They can be adjusted and tweaked as desired.

Additionally, it can be performed in an office setting, often taking 15-30 minutes to complete. This allows you to return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. On the other hand, many people elect to have surgical rhinoplasty due to its permanent nature.

Advantages of Choosing Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty offers advantages such as minimal downtime, reduced risk, and the ability to adjust the shape of your nose without the need for invasive surgery. It’s a convenient option for those seeking temporary changes or individuals who have previously undergone rhinoplasty and desire further refinement.

Potential Limitations

While it provides quick results and minimal downtime, the effects are not permanent. The filler used may migrate over time, and temporary redness or asymmetry may require touch-ups.

What to Expect During and After Your PROCEDURE

You may experience slight redness or swelling, but these side effects should go away within a few days at most. One of the things people love most about non-surgical rhinoplasty is the lack of downtime. You may need to take a few days off from strenuous activities, but you can return to daily living activities right after the procedure.

If you experience any prolonged or severe discomfort, redness, swelling, or other unexpected symptoms, it’s important to contact your healthcare provider immediately. Make sure to attend follow up appointments with your aesthetic provider for maintenance and monitoring.
