Liquid rhinoplasty is the name given to non-surgical nose jobs that use injectable dermal fillers to change the shape of the nose. Instead of using scalpels, high quality hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are used to contour and define the nose shape, bridge and tip.
How to Treat
Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in the body that tends to reduce with age. During liquid rhinoplasty, a patient who seeks a more prominent profile may have injectable fillers placed in the bridge of the nose to give it more definition or height. Based on the desired effect, the individual may have up to 1 cc of filler injected into their nose with a needle or cannula during the minimally invasive procedure to fill depressions or indentations or to create the height and straighter bridge desired.
The key benefit of liquid rhinoplasty is the immediate enhancement of the nose shape without the possible scarring, side effects and long recovery time from nasal surgeries. However, the instant results with liquid rhinoplasty are not permanent.
