Liquid Rhinoplasty Could Help Correct Past Rhinoplasty Procedures

side profile

Not everyone is happy with their rhinoplasty results, and those who are not may feel correcting it with more surgery is too daunting, especially with the extra recovery times. However, you should not let the emotional or financial toll of a surgery that did not deliver expected results stop you from putting your best self forward.  If you are disappointed with previous results, find out how liquid rhinoplasty can be beneficial in correcting past rhinoplasty procedures.

You endured the expense, time, and effort of traditional rhinoplasty, so it might be frustrating to not be content with the results. Although your previous results may discourage you from seeking further treatments, you do not have to accept it the way it is, nor do you have to endure more surgery. Instead, you have liquid rhinoplasty as an alternative option.

Rhinoplasty Surgery Versus Liquid Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is a surgical cosmetic method that can permanently change the appearance of a patient’s nose. A cosmetic surgeon can change the shape and size of a nose by removing or grafting cartilage to give the desired results. Smaller noses can be made larger, larger noses made smaller, and irregularities like a bump on the bridge of the nose, known as a dorsal hump, can be removed. Surgical rhinoplasty utilizes general anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure.

Liquid Rhinoplasty

Liquid rhinoplasty is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that also changes the nose’s appearance and can be beneficial in correcting previous rhinoplasty operations. However, with liquid rhinoplasty, shape and size of the nose can also be altered but to a lesser extent than with surgical rhinoplasty. Fillers are injected into the nose to improve irregularities such as dorsal hump, small bumps, and nose asymmetry.

This technique allows for smaller noses to be enlarged but not for larger noses to be made smaller. Since liquid rhinoplasty is nonsurgical, no anesthesia is needed, and no incisions are made. Results are immediate, and most patients experience little to no swelling or bruising.

The liquid rhinoplasty technique offers benefits by correcting past surgical rhinoplasty, giving the patients immediate results with no downtime, and at a cost considerably less than surgery. Since liquid rhinoplasty is done with injectables, the results are temporary and last about one year. A liquid rhinoplasty is particularly useful for individuals who are uneasy about more work to their nose after previous inadequate surgery, but is also routinely used for patients who have had no prior nose surgery.

The Benefits of Correcting Past Rhinoplasty Procedures with Liquid Rhinoplasty

Apprehension over more facial work is understandable after previous rhinoplasties have not yielded acceptable results. However, knowing how liquid rhinoplasty can be beneficial in correcting past rhinoplasty procedures might help you move forward with the confidence you need to get the nose you want.
