Benefits of A Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
For patients who are unhappy with the shape, size, or projection of their noses, the idea of rhinoplasty can be inspiring and comforting. However, many are concerned about the risks of surgery and may not have time to spare in their busy, active schedules to undergo a lengthy recovery process.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty offers patients a quick, convenient nasal contouring option that can revitalize the appearance without downtime. Just like its surgical counterpart, non-surgical rhinoplasty can boost self-confidence and help patients to make a more positive first impression.
What exactly is a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
A non-surgical (liquid) rhinoplasty is performed using a combination of dermal fillers rather than a scalpel. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, can help correct nasal asymmetry, improve nasal contours, and refine the nasal tip or bridge.
Naturally, only surgery can address concerns related to the nasal bone and cartilage, so a liquid rhinoplasty isn’t right for everyone. It is always best to undergo a private consultation with your provider to determine if a non-surgical rhinoplasty can indeed accomplish your cosmetic goals.
A safe, effective option for facial contouring
Many patients choose non-surgical rhinoplasty because it prevents them from being exposed to the rare risks that come with surgical procedures, including anesthesia risks, bleeding, scarring, infection, numbness, and nerve damage. While the injectables used during a liquid rhinoplasty still carry some slight degree of risk, they are considered to be safer than any surgical procedure.
Most fillers used during a non-surgical rhinoplasty contain hyaluronic acid, a compound found naturally in the human body. HA binds with water molecules to produce supple, soft skin that is youthful and enticing. Because hyaluronic acid is biocompatible, allergic reactions very rarely occur, making HA-based fillers ideal for reshaping and redefining the nose without negative consequences.
No downtime means a rapid return to normal activities
After a non-surgical nose job, there is no recovery period, so patients can immediately resume their regular schedules, whether that means going back to work, returning to school, or taking the rest of the day off. There is no anesthesia used, so clients do not have to worry about finding someone else to drive them home; they can hit the road right away. Patients will not have to deal with the swelling, bruising, and soreness that is inevitable after surgical rhinoplasty. A liquid rhinoplasty session usually lasts 20-30 minutes, making it among the least disruptive ways to improve one’s appearance. For those who cannot afford to take time off in order to heal, a non-surgical rhinoplasty may be the ideal solution.
Changes are reversible
Undergoing surgical rhinoplasty is a significant undertaking and can be daunting. Some patients may feel overwhelmed, not knowing if they will be happy with their results. Liquid rhinoplasty offers patients a chance to “try on” changes in their noses before committing to an invasive surgical procedure with permanent results. With non-surgical rhinoplasty, the patient can monitor the changes to their nose after their injections and provide feedback as to any adjustments they would like to see. Results with dermal fillers usually last up to 18 months. If a patient is not happy with the way their nose looks after filler injections, they can undergo treatment with a reversal agent called hyaluronidase.
What is the takeaway?
There is no question that patients can benefit from having a non-surgical alternative to invasive rhinoplasty surgery. Some who undergo a liquid rhinoplasty may end up pursuing a surgical procedure down the line, but for the time being, they can enjoy a more elegant, refined nasal appearance without anesthesia, incisions, scarring, or downtime. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is ideal for addressing nasal asymmetry, humps and depressions, tip irregularities, and crooked contours. While it cannot achieve internal structural repairs or make changes to the bone and cartilage, many patients can accomplish their ideal nasal shape using fillers alone, which is ultimately a safe, fast, and cost-effective approach.
