Like many people, you may not be satisfied with your nose. Its shape, symmetry, and look may be affecting your facial profile and, subsequently, your overall self-confidence.
Because the nose is such a prominent part of the face, many nasal enhancement options exist, including rhinoplasty (nose job).
What Is a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Administered as an in-clinic procedure, a non-surgical rhinoplasty safely and effectively alters the shape of the nose to enhance a patient's overall facial features. Through injectable fillers, the nose can be reshaped to blend seamlessly in with the surrounding features of the face without changing the cartilage or underlying bone of the nose.
Candidates for an Injectable Rhinoplasty
Often referred to as a “liquid rhinoplasty,” this procedure is ideal if you’re dissatisfied with your nose and are seeking to enhance your nose and face without an invasive surgery. A non-surgical rhinoplasty is an effective solution for creating a more satisfying overall nasal shape and facial profile, especially if you have any of the following:
Broad nasal tip
Flat and/or wide nasal bridge
However, it’s important to be aware that an injectable nose job is not designed to reduce the size of the nose or alter its underlying structure.
Which Injectable Fillers Are Used for This Procedure?
Typically, non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures at M.D Aesthetics involve the use of hyaluronic acid fillers, which are very flexible and ideal for molding and shaping a nose to the desired shape.
They are long-lasting, though not permanent, so they won’t hinder a subsequent surgical rhinoplasty, should it become a more viable treatment option.
What Is the Expected Downtime?
We can perform a non-surgical rhinoplasty in under 30 minutes, which is perfect if you’re concerned about an extensive procedure taking too much time from your busy schedule. While mild swelling and bruising are to be expected, there is little to no downtime with injectable facial fillers.If you’re like most patients, you’ll be able to resume your normal schedule with little, if any, delay. Results do vary, though, as several factors can determine your particular downtime, such as which part of the nose is treated and which specific injectable was used.
It’s normally advisable, however, not to wear glasses or do physical activity for the first 24-48 hours.
The Advantages of a Non-surgical Nose Job over a Surgical Rhinoplasty
A liquid rhinoplasty has several advantages:
Shorter recovery time
Safe and successful
In 15 minutes or fewer, you’ll see improvements that can last a full year; on the other hand, it can take that long for the full effects of a surgical rhinoplasty to become evident.
