How long will a liquid rhinoplasty last?
A surgical rhinoplasty reshapes and corrects the nose structure for the long term. A liquid rhinoplasty can vary in the time the cosmetic enhancement lasts, based upon the type of filler used. Initially, many patients who try a liquid rhinoplasty may choose a filler that produces temporary results, typically lasting in the range of 18 months, with the filler being absorbed by the body over time. After enjoying a new, more balanced and attractive nose shape, patients may then choose to have the enhancement with a dermal filler that that provides more lasting results.
Accomplished Plastic Surgeon in Miami: Liquid Rhinoplasty
As with any facial enhancement, it is imperative that a liquid rhinoplasty is performed by a highly-accomplished professional who focuses upon facial aesthetic surgery. All injections carry some level of risk, such swelling, redness, and bruising. The face, and particularly the nose, is an exceptionally delicate facial zone which has a limited blood supply. A non-surgical correction to nose structure must be performed with an artistic approach to facial balance and a thorough understanding of how each dermal filler performs. A liquid rhinoplasty should be performed by a highly-skilled plastic surgeon with a thorough knowledge and extensive experience in correcting facial flaws. Dr. Jeremy White is a double board-certified plastic surgeon and a leader in the field of facial plastic surgery. He employs state-of-the-art techniques and procedures to help his patients achieve a more attractive facial appearance by treating flaws in nose structure.
Liquid Rhinoplasty: Facial Enhancement with no Downtime
One of the most significant advantages to a “liquid rhinoplasty” is that the procedure involves little-to-no recovery time. Rather than waiting months to experience the final effect of a surgical nose reshaping, the correction to nose structure is immediate. Most patients experience some redness that diminishes within a day or two. Patients who are more susceptible to bruising may require slightly longer, but this can be camouflaged with makeup. You do not require arranging any time off from work or other activities to have this procedure.
Am I a candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty?
People who want a minimally invasive way to modify nose appearance can achieve impressive results with a non-surgical rhinoplasty. The nose is a dominant feature on your face, and nose shape, if out of balance with your other features can make you feel less confident about your appearance. A non-surgical rhinoplasty could be the perfect way to resolve the following facial flaws:
- An unbalanced, unsymmetrical nose shape or contour
- A drooping nasal tip
- A hump or dip in the nasal bridge
- A crooked or uneven nose
Those who experience breathing problems due to structural defects in the nose most often require surgical treatment. Extensive changes to the shape or size of the nose, including size reduction, may also require surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. White will evaluate your nose size, shape, and function to help you determine if you can benefit from this non-invasive, non-surgical procedure.
Benefits of a Non-Surgical Nose Job
One of the biggest benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty is minimal downtime. As the procedure is completed with injectable fillers, the procedure itself, as well as the recovery, are quick and easy.
FUN FACT: The non-surgical nose job has been nicknamed “The 15-Minute Nose Job” because of the speed with which it can be performed. It has gained in popularity in recent years due to the ability to return to work or other activity directly after the procedure.
A non-surgical nose job involves the careful application of semi-permanent or permanent dermal fillers, to enhance nose shape, smooth bumps, or fill in any areas that make the nose shape less appealing. You may want to “try out” changes to your nose contour with dissolvable fillers before taking the plunge to undergo surgical rhinoplasty. Permanent facial fillers can also be effective in correcting flaws from a previous rhinoplasty procedure.
If you are nervous about undergoing surgery, injectable fillers can help you achieve a more flattering profile with an easy recovery and little-to-no downtime. It also costs significantly less than surgical rhinoplasty, so you can improve the shape and appearance of your nose for far less than the cost of a surgical procedure.
Injectable Fillers: How They Work to Enhance Nose Shape
There are many types of injectable fillers that can be used to enhance nose shape. You may be concerned if you feel your nose is too large that adding more volume could have the opposite effect. It may be a surprise to see that adding small amounts of volume to straighten the nose or correct irregularities can make the nose appear far less prominent. A straight, symmetrical nose can better blend with your other facial features, and appear smaller and less noticeable.
Fillers Used During Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Dr. White may recommend a specific filler based on how much volume is needed, the desired permanence of your results, and the changes you envision. These facial fillers can augment the nose bridge, or camouflage a hump or bump, or lift a drooping nose tip. Some facial fillers dissolve after a few months while others provide more permanent results. Fillers used at our facility can include Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, and Bellafill.
What to Expect in a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
You will be given a topical numbing cream to keep your comfortable during the procedure. Once the area is prepared, Dr. White will administer the injections to specific areas to modify nose shape. One of the most powerful benefits of a non-surgical rhinoplasty is the immediate results. Dr. White can precisely inject the nose and make minute adjustments to alter the shape to be in balance and harmony with your other facial features. Once the procedure is complete, you are free to return to your daily activities. The entire procedure can be completed in under an hour and you can even return to work.
How long does it take to recover from a non-surgical nose job?
Perhaps the best part about non-surgical rhinoplasty is virtually no recovery time. Any side effects after the procedure are typically extremely mild and will dissipate with time, so you can start enjoying the look of your new nose right away!
Dr. White will give you a few tips for the first week or two following your procedure while the fillers are settling into place. You can resume your normal skincare routine, but should take care to protect your nose from the sun’s rays, and wear a hat if you plan to be in the out-of-doors for a long period of time.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Results
The results of your procedure will be visible almost immediately. Whether you straightened the bridge, improved symmetry, or altered the nasal tip, you will see the changes from the procedure the same day as your injections.
How long do the results last?
The longevity of your results will depend on the type of filler you received. Some injectable fillers last approximately 10 to 24 months, and follow up appointments will be required for you to maintain your new look. If you opted for a filler like Bellafill, the results will be permanent. Bellafill contains two solutions: bovine collagen to provide immediate results, and a solution containing microspheres that work to support the production of your body’s own collagen and tissue for longer-lasting results.
