In this blog from Youthology, we explain the benefits of a liquid rhinoplasty.
What Is A Liquid Rhinoplasty?
Liquid rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a non-surgical nose job, is a cosmetic procedure that uses injectable dermal fillers to alter the shape of the nose. By providing volume and structure, dermal fillers help to reshape the nose without needing to go under the knife. These fillers are safe, long-lasting, and can be removed easily if necessary.
There are numerous advantages to opting for a liquid rhinoplasty, such as: the procedure is non-invasive and requires minimal discomfort; the recovery time is much shorter compared to a traditional rhinoplasty; no incisions, scarring, or anesthesia is necessary; subtle results that can drastically improve your appearance; and it can even out uneven contours while giving your nose more definition. Additionally, it is fast and convenient, so there is no need to worry about taking time off work or other commitments.
How Does A Liquid Rhinoplasty Work?
The liquid rhinoplasty procedure usually takes 15-30 minutes to finish. The doctor will start by using a topical anesthetic to numb the area, then they will use a very thin needle to inject the filler in the right areas of the nose to improve its shape and symmetry. The doctor will keep an eye on the procedure to make sure that the desired results are achieved.
The results of liquid rhinoplasty are generally instantaneous and can last up to a year or more, depending on the type of filler used. People can anticipate a better nose shape, a neater profile, and a sharper tip. The treatment can also aid in resolving asymmetry and bring harmony to the face.
Liquid rhinoplasty, like any other medical procedure, does come with some potential risks. Bruising, swelling, infection, and an allergic reaction to the filler are all possible, but are usually mild and can be easily managed. To reduce the risk of complications, it is important to find a practitioner who is qualified and has experience with this procedure.
What Are My Options For A Liquid Rhinoplasty At Youthology?
Juvederm is an incredibly popular line of smooth gel dermal fillers that contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a substance that is naturally found in the body, such as in the soft connective tissues of the joints, cartilage, and eyes. For those suffering from arthritis, HA can be injected into the joints to reduce pain and provide cushioning. Injecting HA into the face can also increase volume and reduce lines, and the results of Juvederm fillers can be enjoyed for up to a year. Furthermore, HA works to replenish moisture in the skin and increases the production of elastin, so your skin can become healthier with Juvederm injections.
- In treating the nose area, Juvederm can be used to achieve a variety of results, including reducing deep nasolabial folds, more severe facial wrinkles, and marionette lines, as well as filling in depressed areas in the cheeks.
Restylane and Juvederm are both dermal fillers made of Hyaluronic Acid. However, Restylane has a different consistency, being more granular and particulate than Juvederm. It is best used to gradually build volume, and is highly effective in treating wrinkles and other lines on the face.
- Restylane can be used to smooth out uneven bridges or humps on the nose, which can occur as a result of aging and loss of volume. Restylane injections can help to restore the youthful volume around the nose and reverse these changes.
Radiesse is a dermal filler that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve the volume of your face. It is made from calcium hydroxyapatite, a natural compound already found in the human body’s bones, that stimulates the body’s collagen production. Not only does Radiesse produce natural-looking results, but it has a long record of being safe to use in both reconstructive surgery and dentistry.
- Radiesse can also be injected into the nose to correct bumps, droopy tips, or asymmetries. Additionally, it can be used to lift the cheekbone area and restructure the projection of the chin in the profile view.
Am I A Good Candidate For A Liquid Rhinoplasty?
As liquid rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive treatment, most individuals without any active facial skin infection or recent nasal surgery can be candidates. Instructions on preparing for the procedure may differ, depending on the type of filler that is being used. Your provider should give clear instructions on what to do before a non-surgical rhinoplasty, and you should feel comfortable asking any questions about the procedure, how to prepare, and what to anticipate for the aftercare process.
