    Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

    Non Surgical RhinoplastyNon-surgical rhinoplasty or liquid rhinoplasty involves injecting dermal fillers into the nose for changing its shape. The procedure is cost-effective, quick and doesn’t involve any surgery. The results are temporary and the procedure is recommended for patients that are not yet ready to get permanent results. 

    During your initial consultation, your nose surgeon can help you learn more about liquid rhinoplasty if you are considering it. Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides non-surgical nose job to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations. 

    Non-surgical Rhinoplasty Procedure

    Non-surgical rhinoplasty should be performed by a facial plastic surgeon or under the guidance of one. The surgeon will apply a topical numbing cream or ointment to your nose to prevent discomfort. They will inject dermal fillers in strategic places within the nose to achieve desired results. 

    The dermal filler can be used for flattening out or smoothing the appearance of bumps, raising the nose bridge, improving the overall symmetry, or filling in divots and dips. While the results of nonsurgical rhinoplasty are immediate, they are not permanent. Typically, results don’t last for more than a year. You would be allowed to go home or back to work immediately after the procedure is complete. 

    Type of Dermal Nose Fillers

    Different types of dermal fillers can be used by a surgeon for performing a liquid rhinoplasty. Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane are typically used for nonsurgical rhinoplasty. This is because the filler can be dissolved and the results reversed. 

    Radiesse (calcium hydroxyapatite) is less commonly used by surgeons. Correlating with this, this dermal filler provides longer-lasting results – in some cases up to 2 years. You should know that the results cannot be reversed if something goes wrong.

    Suitable Candidates for Liquid Rhinoplasty

    These are a few contraindications that may prevent you from being an ideal candidate:

    • History of bleeding disorder or autoimmune disease
    • Allergy or hypersensitivity to the dermal filler ingredients
    • Signs of infection, redness, or swelling around the nose
    • Pregnant or breastfeeding
    • Body dysmorphic disorder or unrealistic expectations

    Potential Risks of Filler Rhinoplasty

    Possible complications include:

    • Swelling, redness, tenderness, and bruising at the filler site
    • Accumulation of blood or hematoma
    • Infection
    • Unsatisfactory results
    • Scarring
    • Allergic reaction

    Benefits of Liquid Rhinoplasty

    Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is for patients looking to reshape their nose without removing any tissue. The procedure cannot correct internal defects or improve breathing problems. Liquid rhinoplasty can be used for the following:

    • Small bumps, grooves, dents, or depressions
    • Flat or low bridge
    • Dip in the nose bridge
    • Crookedness or asymmetry
    • Drooping nasal tip
    • Saddle-nose or scooped out profile

    Liquid rhinoplasty can be performed on patients considering surgical rhinoplasty (in certain cases) to let them get a fair idea of the expected results. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a reasonable option for patients that desire minor revisions after getting a surgical rhinoplasty. Furthermore, the procedure is not recommended for patients that want reduction of a large nose or a large bump on their nose.
