Liquid Rhinoplasty Procedures at Donaldson Plastic Surgery
When performed by a qualified injector, a liquid rhinoplasty (or “non-surgical nose job“) strikes the perfect balance between enhancing your already beautiful features and maintaining your natural facial identity. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is typically about correction and can make your nose less noticeable or distracting, allowing you to highlight other areas of your individual beauty.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Benefits:
Results are immediate
Relatively fast, in-office procedure
Lasts between 9 and 12 months, depending on the filler
No recovery time other than swelling & the possibility of light bruising
We can basically treat every single nose with this technique
Am I A Good Candidate For Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
This all depends on your unique goals and history with your nose. If you have had rhinoplasty previously or have experienced physical trauma (like a broken nose), you may not the best candidate for non-surgical rhino. Surgical rhinoplasty may be the better option!
If your concern is a prominent dorsal hump, a droopy tip, an upturned nasal tip or a bulbous tip, you may be a good candidate for nonsurgical rhino. While this treatment isn’t going to fix a crooked nose, it can help create the illusion of a straighter nose by adding volume to certain areas of the nose like the tip. Filler will mimic the bone structure, but we don’t actually structurally reset your bone like with a surgical rhinoplasty.
Have a flatter nose? Non-surgical rhinoplasty is especially effective to build up the bridge of the nose to give it an ideal elevation.
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be completed in just one short visit! Some patients colloquially refer to this treatment as the “15-minute nose job.” However, it may take a little longer depending on your unique circumstances and you may need multiple visits to reach your goals.
If there are any changes you want to make, we can dissolve or add filler. We will wait 2 weeks and then address any asymmetry that remains after swelling goes.
Prior To Your Treatment:
Every treatment begins with a consultation where we discuss your goals and determine if you’re a candidate for liquid rhinoplasty. As your treatment date gets closer, we ask that you do not take any anti-inflammatories 7 days prior and don’t drink alcohol. However, you can use ice and Arnica.
How Much Filler is Used?
Usually, half of a 1ml syringe will suffice. Often, as little as 0.2 to 0.5 ccs can get the job done – a little makes a big difference! The experts at Donaldson Plastic Surgery may split the filler injections into two appointments (or more), as progress can be gradual. We want to avoid “overfilling” at all costs!
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Risks
Swelling, bruising, overfilling and complications are associated with vascular occlusion from misplaced filler or too much filler. The nose has a weak blood supply, which makes it important to do small amounts at a time and build your results over two or more appointments.
What Types of Fillers Are Used for Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty?
It’s all up to the preference and experience of your provider! Our non-surgical nose job specialists prefer to use Juvederm Ultra, Voluma, RHA 3 or 4 – because they want to use a filler with stronger structural integrity.
How Much Does Liquid Rhinoplasty Cost?
This treatment costs typically $1000. The price may range depending on how many treatments you may need, or the type of filler used.
Does It Hurt?
While the actual process is a little awkward (a pinched nose and an injection between the eyes), patients typically do quite well with liquid rhinoplasty and experience only a low level of pain/discomfort! Numbing options are available for added comfort.
Liquid Rhinoplasty Recovery:
After a non-surgical rhinoplasty, you will want to avoid excessive pressure on the area to not disrupt the filler. You should be careful when wearing glasses for a few days after the procedure- ensure that the metal clasp on the glasses is not too tight. You should avoid sleeping directly on your face or the side of your face as well for the days following your non-surgical rhinoplasty. We also suggest that you don’t work out 3 days after the procedure.
Why Choose Donaldson Plastic Surgery?
Our injection filler specialists are experts when it comes to facial anatomy – but they also have an eye for aesthetics! They take the time to truly understand your goals and don’t rush the treatment, ensuring you get the look you’ve always wanted. We take our time to avoid overfilling above the dorsal hump between the eyes because it won’t be pleasing to the eye from a profile and will likely not align with your goals. Are you ready to start your journey to greater self-confidence?
