There’s no wonder why both men and women have been raving about liquid rhinoplasty.

My patients have been saying that it’s the most convenient and least painful nose procedure.

In my over 20 years of experience as a plastic surgeon, I heard patients saying how nervous they were about getting traditional rhinoplasty.

Thanks to advancements in medicine, you can now have your nose done without going under the knife.

Sounds promising, right?

Now let’s dive into more details about the non-surgical nose job.

What is a Non-Surgical Nose Job?

Also known as liquid rhinoplasty, a non-surgical nose job is a procedure involving nasal fillers. It also goes by the name of liquid nose job.

A non-surgical nose job is perfect for those who want to improve their noses’ appearance without surgery. It’s also ideal for patients who don’t want to take the risks that come with traditional rhinoplasty.

In particular, a non-surgical nose job can correct or improve the following:

  • Mild bump on the nose
  • Small nose with a low bridge
  • Slightly crooked nose
  • Hooked-shaped nose
  • Moderately drooping nasal tip
  • Minor imperfection caused by traditional rhinoplasty
  • Unevenness caused by thin skin
  • Nose needing height and definition

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, a liquid nose job is the right procedure for you.

What are Nasal Fillers?

Nasal fillers are used to change the shape and height of your nose. They are made of gel-like ingredients (typically hyaluronic acid) that are compatible with the human body.

In my clinic, we only use nasal fillers made of hyaluronic acid. I find this to be the most effective of all.

Numbing cream or local topical anesthetic is applied before nasal fillers. Once it has settled in, nasal fillers are injected into areas that need smoothening and/or volume.

After the non-surgical nose job, mild redness, swelling, or bruising may occur at the injection points. However, these effects will go away within a few days.

What Are the Benefits of a Non-Surgical Nose Procedure?

There are many advantages associated with a non-surgical nose job. Here they are:

  1. It’s a non-invasive procedure. Liquid rhinoplasty is ideal for those who are afraid of surgery. It’s also perfect for those who don’t want to take the risks of having surgery.
  2. It gives instant results. Nasal fillers instantly settle on your nose. Your looks are improved immediately after the procedure.
  3. Recovery is fast. You don’t have to wait for weeks to recover from a non-surgical nose job. Recovery usually takes about a day.
  4. There’s little to no pain. At my clinic, patients report little to no pain because I use the cannula technique.
  5. It gives you a more natural look. Since improvements are subtle, nasal fillers give you a more natural look.

Is a Non-surgical Nose Job Painful?

Every patient has a specific pain threshold. What’s painful for one might not be painful for another.

However, based on my patients’ experience, the non-surgical nose job done at my facility is not that painful. It’s because of the special topical anesthesia and cannula technique that I use. Rest assured, you’ll experience little to no discomfort at my facility.

Plus, liquid rhinoplasty is less painful than traditional rhinoplasty. You’ll save yourself from great pain.

How Long Do Nasal Fillers Last?

There’s no universal answer to this. The duration heavily varies from one person to another.

A non-surgical nose job can last between 12 and 18 months. Sometimes, it can last up to 3 years.

You must take note, however, that nasal fillers are not permanent. They will eventually dissolve.

How Long Does Recovery Take?

The beauty of liquid rhinoplasty is its short recovery period.

You can get back to normal within a day after the procedure. Many patients report doing their regular physical activities the next day.

Emma (real name not revealed for privacy purposes), did not like the irregularity and hump on her nose. However, she did not want to have surgery. As an alternative, I offered her liquid rhinoplasty.

She was so happy with the instant results. She started loving her nose, the looks of which she did not like for years.
