Liquid rhinoplasty is also known as nonsurgical rhinoplasty or liquid nose job is a technique that uses dermal filler to shape and contour the external appearance of the nose. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting filler into specific areas of the nose to fill a depression and hide defects thus changing the shape and size of the nose.
When it comes to a nose job, going under the needle is less complicated than going under the knife. The liquid nose job is ideal for individuals who are looking to smooth out bumps on their nose or make it less angular but are unable or unwilling to receive a more invasive procedure. Others might not be ready for a permanent solution or may be worried about the risks, side effects, and downtime involved with a traditional liquid rhinoplasty in Dubai.
How Liquid Rhinoplasty works:
A liquid nose job typically uses hyaluronic-based dermal fillers such as Perlane, Restylane, and Juvederm to change the shape of the nose. Although Radiesse is sometimes used, it is a bit harder to shape as it’s made from calcium hydroxyapatite material but it lasts longer than the hyaluronic-based fillers. The type of filler used depends on its intrinsic properties that allow for easy shaping and contouring as well as the duration of the results.
The liquid nose job works by injecting a gel-like injectable (filler) underneath the nasal skin in the areas where there is a need to create smoother lines and volume. Botox can also be used during the treatment.
Once the filler settles in the deeper skin layers and holds its shape it can change the look of the nose for a period of 4 months to a year depending on the choice of filler, your skin, and your desired results.
The liquid rhinoplasty targets the tip, bridge, and sides of the nose. This procedure works well for individuals who want to:
- Make the tip of the nose a bit more prominent
- Smooth out small bumps in the nose
- Add volume to the nose
- Lift the tip of the nose
However, liquid rhinoplasty is not recommended to individuals who desire to increase the size of their nose, smooth out prominent bumps, or need functional improvements.
Procedure for Liquid Rhinoplasty:
The liquid rhinoplasty procedure is quite simple as compared to the traditional rhinoplasty as it can take as little as just 15 minutes to complete.
Following a consultation where you will discuss your concerns and goals with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is an expert in rhinoplasty, you will be instructed to lie down with your face tilted up. A topical anesthetic may be applied to your nose and surrounding areas for your comfort during the procedure.
Your Plastic Surgeon will then inject the filler into the targeted areas of the nose and you might feel slight pressure or a pinch as this is done.
Recovery and Results:
Following a liquid rhinoplasty procedure, it is common for individuals to experience some redness, minor swelling, prick marks, and some bruising. However, this subsides quickly and you should start seeing the results. The full results should be visible in about one to two weeks.
There is no downtime associated with liquid rhinoplasty and most individuals go back to their normal activities immediately following the procedure.
