It has been argued by many which is the most commonly requested procedure between the rhinoplasty and the breast augmentation. Both procedures are extremely personal, considered invasive and lead the forefront of surgeries resulting in life changing outcomes. As time passes, each procedure seems to become less invasive and offers more progressive treatment options. It is only expected that each would evolve to achieve optimal enhancements while lowering permanent risks and effects.
Recently we were introduced to the idea of “Vacation Boobs”, the common term used to describe the new temporary breast augmentations. Simply put, it is a saline injection used to inflate women’s breasts for 24 hrs. Women are now “test-driving” what it may be like to undergo an augmentation and uncovering other types of temporary progressive opportunities they have never thought to seek out.
Temporary, non-invasive procedures are the latest trend happening in cosmetic surgery right now for multiple reasons. When it comes to plastic surgery, the leading cause of apprehension is considerably obvious; unrealistic expectations and permanent results. Rhinoplasty is one of the top requested surgical procedures among Americans, yet not every inquiry is carried out due to fear of the forever unknown.
What if I told you there is a cutting edge treatment that uses injectable fillers to correct, change the shape, size and position of the nasal tip, straighten the nose, and even hide bumps, without going under the knife, and without being forever unrecognizable ?
Liquid Rhinoplasty is a non-surgical technique to temporarily modify the shape of the nose and enhance your overall appearance. For the right patient, Liquid Rhinoplasty is a convenient and pain-free alternative to invasive surgical procedures. This innovative strategy offers a solution to an individuals undesirable nose characteristics but also, testing it out with no real commitment. It will become a standard, added step in the process, rather than jumping right into it, and sure, why not? The nose after all is the focal point of your face.
Liquid rhinoplasty, also referred to as non-surgical rhinoplasty, helps to achieve the following:
- Disguise a hump on the bridge of the nose;
- Correct minor depressions;
- Straighten a crooked appearance; or
- Improve the size, shape or position of the nasal tip.
In appropriate patients, liquid rhinoplasty offers many benefits over traditional surgical rhinoplasty. There are few side effects, immediate results, and little to no downtime. In fact, patients are able to return to work and other normal activities the next day. Furthermore, if you don’t like the results, the product can be dissolved within 24 hours with a simple injection.
The benefits of a liquid rhinoplasty seem endless as there is no recovery time required, results are immediate, safe, effective, and not permanent! Liquid Rhinoplasty procedures in NYC utilize hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers, including Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm are preferred, as they are the easiest to mold and shape, and can be removed within 24 hours, if necessary. Sounds to me like typical cosmetic maintenance for the future. During treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin. The injectable filler also contain lidocaine to further ensure patient comfort. The filler is then injected beneath the skin in targeted areas of the nose using a very fine needle. The treatment takes approximately thirty minutes to complete. The longevity of the outcome can range based on the specifics of the customized treatment plan. Everything from the brand of the injectable to the target area being treated can affect how long the results will last.

His 20 years of experience and well- deserved reputation as a leading expert in rhinoplasty and rhinoplasty revision, give him immediate authority to break down why this is the perfect resolve for those who are seeking improvement but are hesitant for some reason or another:
“Rhinoplasty treatments should be a completely personalized experience. As a top surgeon in NYC, it is my responsibility to provide you with all of the facts and treatment options available. There are so many different techniques out there, but this advancement that we have perfected can change the dynamic in cosmetic rhinoplasty, which has seemingly been the same over the years. It is very imperative to educating a person on the different types of services that will meet their needs since their are so many factors that contribute to selecting the right treatment. Liquid rhinoplasty however, can ease your stress about invasive operations, financial burdens, and any disappointment due to the permanent change you are considering that will affect the rest of your life.”
While liquid rhinoplasty offers a good alternative to patients who do not want to undergo surgery, not everyone is a candidate. Injectable fillers work by filling in depressed or hollow areas. As such, they are best for those seeking augmentation. This technique cannot make a large nose smaller, nor can it remove bumps. The best way to determine if liquid rhinoplasty is right for you is to consult with a qualified facial plastic surgeon.
